MIDNIGHT WHISPERS – A Grown-Ass V.C. Andrews Review

We’re rolling along in the Cutler series. Midnight Whispers follows standard V.C. Andrews tradition, departing from Dawn’s narrative. Instead, we’re treated to a jam-packed book full of her daughter (and doppelganger) Christie. Will Christie live with the Cutler family curse, or is it all just sunshine and princess rainbows? Well, this is a V.C. Andrews book, so of course not. HAPPY AND INNOCENT, DAWN’S DAUGHTER CHRISTIE HAS GROWN UP IN...

TWILIGHT’S CHILD – A Grown-Ass V.C. Andrews Review

HONEY: A Grown-Ass V.C. Andrews Review

Here we are at the final individual novella in the Shooting Stars mini-series. These books have provided me with an easy escape from the tail-end of summer. Thus, I can admit that I’ve enjoyed hate-reading them. So let’s take one last deep-dive review into a hastily-plotted V.C. Andrews novel, Honey. IN HER MUSIC, SHE FOUND SWEET SALVATION Honey grew up on a farm under her strict, fanatically religious grandfather’s disapproving...

ROSE: A Grown-Ass V.C. Andrews Review

We’re getting into the thick of the Shooting Stars mini-series, so if you haven’t checked out the first two books, Cinnamon and Ice, make sure you do! So let’s dive into my review of Rose, which promises a truer return to typical V.C. Andrews form. Here’s a look at the synopsis: WHEN SHE DANCED, SHE COULD DREAM… Beautiful and talented, Rose was the apple of her father’s eye. But when...

Revisiting V.C. Andrews Books As A Grown-Ass Woman

I’m a little ashamed to admit that got into VC Andrews late into the game. The dog-eared paperbacks frequented the shelves of the thrift stores I visited as a kid. So inviting. So tantalizing. A pretty girl’s face peeked through the keyhole on every cover, and then you’d open it to the stepback page behind it that revealed a horrified-looking family. Always a girl.
