Lisa Goodreads is weird when you re-read a book.
Anyways, I'm currently on page 90 and I've noticed that the U.K edition has been edited! Gasp! It's missing a few pages in the first chapter. I'm not sure if anything else has been edited.

Simms Molly Is this good? I really want to read it :)

Lisa Yesyesyes. It's one of my all time favourites. I don't re-read books that often but I've read Flowers In The Attic at LEAST 10 times. Probably more. It somehow doesn't get old to me. I guess we all have at least one book that we re-read like crazy. This is mine.

So yeah, I recommend it. :P

Fatima I want to read this, but I wasnt sure if it was good or not. When I went back to the bookstore, it wasnt there :(

Lisa :(
That's no good. I do most of my bookbuying on Amazon. They have it in a couple of editions, including a bind-up edition with Flowers In The Attic and Petals On The Wind(which I also own. Yes, I have two copies of this book...)
Anyways, the bind-up is the same price as buying just FITA would be. But it's also quite big. :P

Fatima Oh really? I didnt know they had a bind up! thats really good. I will have to check it out, thanks! I might just buy it on my Kindle.

Meg ♥ i love this book so much! :-)

Meg ♥ I agree about the movie. Horrible! I feel the same way when I see reviews of people saying it's trashy, gross, and bad writing. I love her writing! Yes, the relationship is a weird outcome, but it's just a side effect of everything horrible that's happened to them. I think Virginia was brilliant, and so was Flowers in the Attic, this whole series was great!

Lisa I'm always happy to meet someone who feels the same way about her writing :)
I've started Petals On The Wind again. It's hard to just read one book out of the series. You want to keep reading!

Fatima Is the movie/book supposed to be scary? Because I watched the trailer for the movie and I found it creepy. I'll probably watch it after I've read the book, I dont want to spoil it for myself.

Lisa Yeah, I definitely recommend the book first. Then you can watch the movie and laugh at how much they screwed it up. :P
The movie tries to be scary. But it really isn't that bad. The book has a creepy feel and a few scary-ish parts but it's so good.
