Return of Flowers in the Attic
I recently discovered via the EarlyWord blog, that Simon and Schuster is releasing a bind-up of the V.C. Andrews titles Flowers in the Attic/Petals in the Wind. I remember reading V.C. Andrews when I was fourteen or fifteen. The Flowers in the Attic books were something of a guilty pleasure. So bad, but so good. Intriguing, suspenseful, and kind of creepy. They were extremely popular among my peers, mainly because they were considered forbidden. I remember the copy that circulated through my group of friends had all the dirty parts highlighted.
I wonder how my adult-self would react to these books today? I may try to get my hands on a copy of the bind-up when it’s released next month. I’m sure it would be fun to revisit these “juicy” books from my youth.
