V.C. ANDREWS is making a comeback!

I'm accepting a challenge this year. I guess I'll count it as a "book resolution" of sorts. Steph over at Reviewer X and Taren at The Chick Manifesto have issued the challenge. They want readers to read 11 V.C. Andrews's novels over the next year. That's less than 1 per month. I think I'm up for that.

I'm actually bending the rules a bit and reading one not on the suggested list. Hey, it's the only one I could find in my little town and I wanted to start right away. BROKEN WINGS is my first pick. I'm sure it's not vintage VCA, but like I said the selection was limited.

I'll read and review them just like any other book here on my blog. Yes, students, some of them have AR tests, so I'll post the points with each review. I will reserve the right to decide whether they are placed on the middle school shelf or the high school shelf in my classroom. That means you 8th grade reading fiends may have to stop by next year to sink your teeth into some of them. *pout*

Last, but not least, I encourage others to accept the VCA Challenge. We can create a support group and swap books and everything.

Thanks for accepting the challenge! It's going to be a fun...and incredibly weird...year!

That's wild...I haven't thought of V.C. Andrews in years. I might have to pick up some and read/reread them. I won't actively join the challenge, but I think it's a great idea.

Wow. That's a lot of V.C. Andres. A student gave me a couple to read last year, and I hadn't remembered how sad and disturbing they are. Flowers in the Attic would definitely make the high school shelf! Think I'll pass!
