Jaime Loves Stuff : Flowers In The Attic 2014


Flowers In The Attic 2014




Who else read VC Andrews' jaw-dropping book, "Flowers in the Attic"? I can vividly remember when I first read it and, because I was young, I had no idea what a D&C was but I pretty much had an idea but not 100%.
  I stayed up until 2 am (even though I had to go to school and I was in seventh grade at the time) to finish it.  In one sitting.  I hid under my blanket with a flashlight so I could finish it.  The incest.  The tyranny. The abuse.  The deaths. The nightmare.  It is still vivid.   It was the ultimate, stomach-churning nightmare that people couldn't stop talking about.  All these years later, it still shocks people.  VC Andrews churned out tons of books and carried on not only the Dollanganger saga, but many more and once she died, ghost writers have carried on the various stories.   I read so many of the various series by Andrews.  They're sickening and addicting.

You can't stop! Or at least, I couldn't.



They're the ultimate train wreck- incest, abuse, poverty and extreme wealth but kinda-sorta an underdog story.

I was thrown for a loop when I heard that a new film is being made of Flowers in the Attic.  I honestly didn't hate the 1987 film but I am pretty dang excited for this new one which will air in January on Lifetime.


Makes me want to read the books again!
