Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

Christopher's Diary: Secrets of Foxworth by V. C. Andrews

This book is in Andrew's  usual style of writing about children who have parental issues, in this case cruelty by the grandparents.  I found the book quite similar to her other books such as Flowers in the Attic and The Unwelcomed Child.  This installment of this series is about the diary of Christopher Dollanganger.  

The book didn't really offer any more insight to the overall plot than the previous books.  It didn't even get to the end of the diary while obviously setting itself up for a sequel. 

My thoughts on The Unwelcomed Child were the story has become a formula, albeit a successful formula for the pseudo Andrews.  This book, too, is far too similar to past books in style and characterizations without the flair and personality of the original V.C. Andrews.  I'm not sure the reincarnation is working.

It was not as good as the two previous books.

Web Site:

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
