KINDLE BOOKS Celeste Gemini #1 AUTHOR V.C. Andrews – 8p2.us
I started to read Virginia Andrews books about 10 years ago when I was a teen I can remember stealing them off my mother s bookshelf and reading them within a ay However I ve found that the newer books that have been ghostwritten after Andrew s Blind Devotion (The Shifter Chronicles death are mainly aisappointment compared to the older books she wrote herself Celeste had a good start as I liked the angle of supernatural powers being passed My Name is Bob down through generations but I found that many pages would rattle on with the same hopesworries about these powers so that I reallyidn t care if they were Real Or Mental Illness By or mental illness by end The book was very reminiscent of my favorite VA s book Flowers in the Atticselfish mother that keeps children isolated but id not have the suspense or emotion that made that book to enthralling I honestly feel that these newer books after VA s eath Billy Bragg do her name and previously excellent storylines aisservice As they seem to be a poor re hashing of original ideas I m still Polly Prices Totally Secret Diary deciding if I m going to bother reading the sueals to this story if Io it wouldn t be for a while and I would only look for them at my local secondhand bookstore not worth buying new TW rape physical and emotional abuse I ve read uite a few VC Andrews books in my time and I m confident in saying this is the worst so far It has all the markings of true VC Andrews trash hints at incest fatal car accidents a pivotal scene where the protagonist gets her period for the first time rape child abuse a psychopathic matriarch the list goes on Although i I liked this book but idn t exactly love it Being locked away from everyone else is a horrible thing for children to be made to o I totally get the fact that a child wants their parents to be proud of them but personally I felt Celeste should have refused to be her brother She was her own person much like all twins Being The Majors Daughter denied the information of what a menstrual cycle was reminded me of Carrie by Stephen King I was concerned mainly with the fact her mother made her wear a modified corset With it being as tight as it was her ribcage could have been crushed from the pressure and messed her internal organs up I was horrified that even though her brother seath was an accident that the mother believed it would raw attention to their name if the town found out But with the
of Celeste they still brought attention to themselves There was just so much the mother enied her On His Majestys Service daughter by what sheid throughout the whole book And no matter what Celeste had a baby and if she wanted to see it then the mother shouldn t have Different Class denied her to take care of her Albeit she was just a teen when she had a baby but at least show her how to take care of the baby without being an a hole about it I came across this title as I was cleaning up the VC Andrews Goodreads page A VC Andrews series that was not five books long The premise also sounded veryifferent from her other sagas Celeste and Noble are twins whose mother believes she can speak to spirits After their father The Essential Good Food Guide dies their mother keeps them isolated on their farm and homeschools them until theay Noble has a terrible accident and ies Celeste believes it was her own fault and tries to appease her mother when she tells Celeste that she needs to take Noble s place Mother He was her mirror image Now the mirror has crackedCeleste and her twin brother Noble are as close as can be until a tragic accident takes Noble's life It's a loss that push. ,
