Flowers in the Attic is my all time favorite book but the Landry series hits a little closer to home.

I saw FITA when I was very young and the grandmother very much reminded me of my own and a friend of the family had all of the books printed to date. I was voracious as a child when it came to reading, I'd read the ingredients on a ketchup bottle. It really helped to have the complete series at my fingertips and a close association to the characters.

I would love to rebuild the entire collection.

I used the 'inner covers' as inspirations for my horror stories. Never actually read any of it.

Did you ever check out any of the others? I feel like I'm the only one with love for the Landry series.

I used to read the Flowers in the attic ones. No time to read anymore! Shame there's only 24 hours in a day!

I read several of the series' but it was years ago and I don't know which ones specifically besides the Dollanganger series (I actually got my hands on them when I was in grade school - inappropriate but it didn't do any harm). I don't like it when an author's name is used posthumously because whoever keeps up the writing (Andrew Neiderman in this case) tends to follow the same script, just changing the characters and a few details, and that definitely showed on 'her' newer series'. They all seem to be the same stories to me.

I did when I was younger. The one where the kids are hidden in the attic, and there's incest and stuff. I read the second one and then by the third, it was such drama and unbelievable things going on, (Katherine's boy, who "couldn't feel pain" etc) I gave up on this author. I don't remember what series it was, though.

To each their own.

I like Stephen King and both David and Amy Sedaris a lot, and many people think they are hacks, so it's all up to what you like.

That's the Dollanganger series. I only liked Flowers in the Attic and the sequel. After Chris moved out and his mother was spying on him and all of that, I too was really creeped out.

I think I was 11 or so when I first got my hands on it, too. I wasn't damaged as far as I know.

The formula was her own, he just filled in the blanks.

Ah, that was the one. Was Chris her husband? He was a doctor, right? I can't believe I remember this much about them. I read them SO long ago. But, I did read the first one, like a bunch of times. I was young and there was sex in it, so there's that.

And the whole kids locked in an attic thing intrigued me.

I adored the Heaven series.

My mother let me read these (not realizing what they were) when I was about 8 - but I've got a lifelong love of them. My Sweet Audrina was definitely a favorite.

I loved the original series but I think that her books became repetitive

I think they became repetitive after she died, for sure.
