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.

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.

This is an old article, but I just read that Newbery winner Katherine Applegate wrote "around 17 Sweet Valley Twins."

So now I'm imagining the SVT books with the medal on the cover and it's making me laugh!

Notice something in an older SVH [Oct. 1st, 2014|05:34 pm]

My collection of books is a mishmash of mostly older books bought really cheap and a few newer ones. I was flipping through the older ones just to see how far back they went. In the pile was a first edition of SVH #5 All Night Long.

I was looking at the previews of the upcoming books - one was to be churned out every month - and noticed something odd.



Yep, Dear Sister with another title. IMO, a much better title.

SVJH #29 - He's the One [Aug. 27th, 2014|03:51 am]

I want to say that I dug this book out of a box in my closet or something, but it was actually sitting right on my bookshelf, along with the rest of the series. I am very grown-up.



So SVJH is somewhat maligned, for multiple reasons: its attempts to be hip to the early 2000s, its introduction of new characters that no one really cares about, and its general lack of continuity with SVH (which technically comes right after it). However, in this book, Jess makes Liz promise something ridiculous and Liz doormats, then cheats on her boyfriend. So if you've perhaps felt alienated by this series, rest assured that we are in familiar territory.

By the way, Liz's headband looks way uncomfortable. Why were comb teeth headbands ever a thing? And I think they switched up the Salvador model, for like, the last cover he appears on.

""How can Blubba - er, I mean, Bubba - ever compare to that man of men, Sam?" Ellen wondered."Collapse )
