[sticky post] Admin: Recap List [Jan. 22nd, 2013|09:56 pm]
Elizabeth and Jessica are better than you.

[Tags|, , ]

I would like to find a new place to host the list of completed recaps because ours is now too long for LiveJournal, and we can't add to it. I was making additions on the website for a time, but that's gone now too.

Books that have not been recapped are just numbers, have not been done (To save space, since LJ has a limit, I removed the TV and misc recaps--they can still be found in our profile--and I have stopped linking additional recaps of the same books.)

Please let me know if I am missing any recaps you've done or read!

Little facts & such! [Jan. 7th, 2016|03:59 pm]

So, sometime last year I started rereading SVH, and I guess I wanted to bookmark little things along the way. Completely forgot about it until I was reorganizing the small bookcase I keep my SVHs and SVUs on, when I found a few books that had a page or two dog-eared.

Unfortunately, the only things I managed to do this for were two Jessica facts from book 2. They are below. (The other things I flagged were songs to look up, outfits I wanted to see what they looked like IRL, etc.)

Jessica tried to be friends with Enid first! Part of the reason she was annoyed with her was that she was friends with Elizabeth instead. (Source: Chapter 3 of Secrets.)

Jessica is allergic to gardenias. (Source: Chapter 6 of Secrets.) I wonder if Liz has this same allergy?

Anyone got any others? For anybody in the series, not only the twins? I swear, I'm 30, been a fan off and on since I was 8, and was still very surprised by the Jess and Enid thing. Somehow I never remembered it!

SVH-inspired coffee [Oct. 23rd, 2015|05:52 pm]
Elizabeth and Jessica are better than you.

Apparently Sweet Valley High has inspired a limited edition coffee from Counter Culture Coffee ! It's available until the end of October, so if you want to buy some for the collectible box (and who doesn't need more SVH swag?!), you should probably buy it soon.  The website says this coffee is a blend of beans from two different farms, phrasing it so wonderfully like this:

While these co-ops sometimes seem like twins, they certainly exhibit distinctive flavor profiles

I assume someone there must be a big SVH fan.  Too funny!

Books, books, books. [Oct. 8th, 2015|07:41 pm]
Elizabeth and Jessica are better than you.

I'm not sure if this is permitted, or even if folks are still around, but I always loved and had a great time reading the recaps on this community.

Unfortunately, my parents are moving, and this means my Sweet Valley Kids, Twins, High, University, ETC. collection will no longer have a home. My tiny apartment has no room in it for them.

I am going to sell the lot to a local book reseller or try ebay (I would never throw a book out.), but wanted to drop a line here. I don't have a master list, but if anyone had one they had been looking for, or was missing from their collection, I would happily send you mine for the price of shipping. Anything for a fellow fan.

So, let me know, and I'm happy to let you know if I have it. I have most of the Twins, Unicorn Club, and that era. And then good chunks from the others.

Happy reading. :)

ETA: Thanks for the responses guys! Happy some of these will be going to happy places. I'm looking for Baby Sitter Club fans next - just a headsup in case there's a crossover audience here, I have a huge collection of those as well. :)

Papertown's Margo and SVH'sJessica [Oct. 4th, 2015|06:04 pm]
Elizabeth and Jessica are better than you.


Saw the movie, Papertowns, with my girlfriends, read the book, and couldn't help noticing an uncanny resemblence between "Queen Bee/Most Popular Girl" Margo Roth Speigleman and Jessica Wakefield albiet John Green forgot to make Margo a cheerleader.
Here's my Goodreads review
Have a great day!

Fun with names [Sep. 23rd, 2015|05:20 pm]
Elizabeth and Jessica are better than you.


So a conversation a few nights ago took an interesting turn when we wondered how weird sounding names would be if you switched the first letters of the first and last names around and played around with the sound.  Joe Dirt = Doe Jirt, etc.

A fellow SVH fan randomly yells "Bruce Patman = Puce Bratman!" and it cracked us up so bad I thought I'd share with you all :D

Have you guys read Roxane Gay's take on Sweet Valley Confidential? I feel like we would all get along with her.

Elizabeth and Jessica are better than you.

TIL that Yzma Madame Pascal released an alternate ending to her series, The Sweet Life, in May of 2014.


THIS IS BRAND NEW INFORMATION TO ME and I can't believe that I had no idea about it until just now.
