a massive vc andrews megapost



FOR NOSTALGIA’S SAKE I had to share and upload all the VC books I have for my nook. BTW The image was taken from an older VC post back from 2006. Please go under the cut for all details BECAUSE IT IS LONG!:

from wiki
Andrews' novels combine Gothic horror and family saga, revolving around family secrets and forbidden love (frequently involving themes of consensual incest, most often between siblings), and they often include a rags-to-riches story. Her best-known novel is the infamous bestseller Flowers in the Attic (1979), a tale of four children locked in the attic of a wealthy Virginia family by their estranged religious grandmother for over three years.

Her novels were so successful that, after her death, her estate hired a ghost writer, Andrew Neiderman, to write more stories to be published under her name. In assessing a deficiency in her estate tax returns, the Internal Revenue Service argued (successfully) that Virginia Andrews's name was a valuable commercial asset, the value of which should be included in her gross estate.



The Dollanganger series [Honestly, Flowers in the Attic is her most famous book but honestly it is the MOST overrated. Everyone is shocked by the horror and sex that goes on in the first book, but read the 2nd and 3rd and it's NOTHING compared to first. ]

Early Spring series [The WORST series in all her books. I can deal with death, horror, incest, rape, etc/etc but this. I can't handle a six year old girl and the issues with her body/sexuality/perspective on life. I felt terrible reading this book.]

Broken Flower (October 2006)
Scattered Leaves (Feb 27, 2007)



Secrets Series

Secrets in the Attic (September 2007)
Secrets in the Shadows (April 2008)



Delia Series [The ghostwriter got into the latino-bandwagon and finally had a latina lead. An awesome fast read, if you want a quick read this one should be it, it follows all the "steps" that VC was infamous for.]

Delia's Crossing (September 2008)
Delia's Heart (December 2008)
Delia's Gift (February 2009)



Heavenstone Series

Heavenstone Secrets (2009)
Secret Whispers (March 2010)

[This isn't ALL her books but I felt this would be a good place to stop, after this release I felt the ghostwriter jumped ship. There was even a Vampire-related release. Sad times! I hope VC and her team go back to what made her infamous/epic: family dramatics, twisted incest and 4-5 novel run.]

VC Andrews isn't for everyone. There is a big hate in the recent years from new readers who seem to be put off by the gothic horror, unhappy endings and all that incest. Take note this.


LOL. never forget!
  • Current Mood: nostalgic nostalgic
I remember trying to read Flowers in the Attic when I was like 10 or 11 years old and just hating the thing. I don't even remember why, I was mostly just confused. LOL
These books seem really interesting! I think I might have to give them a go!
(super late comment, but)
GAWD, VC ANDREWS. Bless this post. I love her books to death. I actually never knew that a ghostwriter took over in the end, but it makes sense, haha.
Downloads
How do I download the books you are talking about? I have been trying to get my hands on a copy of "Gathering Clouds" with no luck. Just found out in April that she had so many novels. Although I can tell the difference between her & the ghost writer her stories are still there and just as thrilling!
