Ah, Nostalgia....

Like most girls that grew up in the 80's, I loved Sweet Valley High. There was something so ridiculously fun and cheesy about those books that I just couldn't put them down. Well, it looks like they've brought it back. The book is supposedly going to follow Elizabeth and Jessica's lives a decade after having left Sweet Valley High and I am, strangely, looking forward to reading it.

Looking back on the series, the most memorable arcs they ever did were the Jungle Prom/Evil Twin miniseries and the books that followed the twins ancestors. Granted, they were not the most realistic (or historical accurate) stories ever, but they had a certain charm and personality to them that I couldn't get enough of back then.

Will they still have the perfect size 6 figures and Pacific-blue eyes? Will Lila still be as fabulous as ever? Will Jessica have outgrown her sociopathic tenancies while Liz was busy growing a spine? We shall see. If you're a fan of the series, I would love to know what your favorite plots were. Feel free to post them and your thoughts on the new book in the comments. :) Til next time...

omg, so funny. I was JUST thinking about this series again the other day. I used to love, love, love this series as a teen/young adult and was looking for it in the library again to show my now 8yro (who is a very advanced reader). But I couldnt find them. I only found Sweet Valley JUNIOR high. I never even knew they had those... anyway if they come out with more SVH books, I will definitely read them. So excited to hear that. My fav was the evil twin series, too.

It's unreal how many series they made with those books. Junior High, Twins, Senior Year, Sweet Valley Kids, Unicorn Club... they kept a lot of ghost writers busy... lol. I had at least one of each when I was younger.

Good to see someone else who loved the Evil Twin plot line and is looking forward to the new book. When it comes out, I will have to post my thoughts on it and you'll have to share yours, too :)
