Friday Flashback: Sweet Valley High

Oh, how I loved Sweet Valley books, both the Sweet Valley High series as well as the Sweet Valley Twins one. I also loved the Wakefields of Sweet Valley and Patmans of Sweet Valley books.

A few months ago, I found Brokenhearted in the free box at the library. It's been years since I read a Sweet Valley book, so I picked it up.

From Goodreads: "Suddenly she is faced with a very difficult choice -- a choice between the only two boys she has ever loved. What will Elizabeth do?"

The entire book was as dramatic as that line. O.M.G. So. Very. Very. Dramatic. But when you are 16 it all feels so dramatic. Elizabeth, the good twin, has two guys, Jeffrey French and Todd Wilkins, who want to date her. If you remember anything about Liz, she winds up with Todd. Poor Jeffrey.

Sweet Valley Confidential: Ten Years Later is coming out in March. I am SO (ridiculously) excited. Here's an excerpt if you are interested.


  1. So cool! I loved Sweet Valley High and Sweet Valley Twins. My favorite were their Xmas specials.

  2. Oh man did I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Sweet Valley books!!! I am DEFINITELY ready Sweet Valley Confidential - please remind me that it's out whenever you pick it up! Thanks for a fun flashback!

  3. I never read the books. However... I did have the board game and we played it all the time!

  4. Is it wrong that I seriously have no embarassment over how freaking excited I am about Sweet Valley Confidential?

    I remember when Liz chose Todd over Jeffrey. Intense.
