SVK #33, Caroline's Halloween Spell [Jun. 15th, 2010|01:35 am]
Elizabeth and Jessica are better than you.


[Tags|, , , , ]

Okay, motivated by esc_key 's last two posts (and more than a little Jessica-like greed for those awesome shirts & compacts), I'm back to recap.  It also helps that school is over.  Time to ease back into things with SVK #33, Caroline's Halloween Spell.  

There's not really a good picture of the cover online, but the background is orange and it shows Caroline, dressed as a witch, leering at a disgusted-looking Elizabeth in a detective costume. 

Fair warning, this book is pretty horrible - I'd say more so than average, even for an SVK.  It's not remotely cute/endearing/whatever a book for 7-year-olds is supposed to be.  It's just...crap.  Like those stupid little mini-Tootsie Rolls you always got way more of than you could ever eat in your Trick-or-Treat basket.

I told you so.Collapse )

Unicorn Club #11: Angels Keep Out [Jun. 15th, 2010|10:43 am]

I was going to do a recap of Unicorns 15 but my computer ate it without autosaving (you let me down Bill Gates!) and since that was last summer, someone has snuck in with a recap of that one since then. And I missed it somehow. So, in hopes of scoring some swag, (hey, if Jessica can be motivated by greed, so can I!) I’ll break out a different Unicorns book. (though I was considering SV Senior Year 3 which has a back cover that says “This girl will do anything for me. Wash my car. Make my bed. I bet she’d floss my teeth if I asked her to. Just like all the others. Except she’s Elizabeth. And somehow that makes things a little more complicated.” Which is the creepiest back cover I’ve ever read. And though I never read a SV Senior High book, that one might be next on the list.)

Anywhoo, Sweet Valley Unicorns 11: Angels Keep Out. I’m pretty sure there is punctuation missing on that, but it has been a long time since English class. Shouldn’t it be Angels, Keep Out! ? Whatever. The cover shows 4 Unicorns (sorry, no pic yet) around an easel that has a “Top Secret Party Map” on it. But all it is is some poorly drawn houses, dotted lines from “Family Circus” and an X marking the spot of the party. No other references, no north, no landmarks, nada. So I defy anyone to actually use this map to make it to the party. Whatever. On to the story!

Back in middle school where 1 cool party was all you needed to set you up for life...Collapse )

Sweet Valley Twins #103: Elizabeth Solves It All [Jun. 15th, 2010|11:41 pm]

I can see why no one has re-capped this one yet as it’s pretty dull, but I found it while cleaning out my attic last week and the contest has motivated to get re-capping.

The book starts off with this gem:

“To Our Readers,

The Sixers is proud to announce ‘Dear Elizabeth,’ an advice column just for kids. Send in your questions and get great advice from Elizabeth Walkefield. As you all know, Elizabeth Wakefield is a great student, a great writer, and a person who cares about other people’s problems. So write to Dear Elzabeth care of the Sixers, room 204, and take advantage of the wit and wisdom of Sweet Valley Middle School’s very own professional adviser, Elizabeth Wakefield. (Confidentiality respected.)”

Onto the recap . . .Collapse )

So I've been meaning to post a recap but I've been superlazy/superbusy. Beginning of uni holidays + extra motivation = recap complete!

I got book this for Christmas one year. The cover makes me feel delightfully Christmasy. Also, check out the 2000s-ish attitude in the title! I'm not just outta here, I'm so outta here. SVJH, you're clearly the epitome of cool.

it's all fun and games until the twins have a fightCollapse )
