A 30-something's lovingly sarcastic journey through all of Sweet Valley High, and then some (with lots of swears)

Snark Valley High!

So … I recently completed my collection of Sweet Valley High books .. those beloved soap opera novels of my youth. From 1983 to 2003, the original SVH series made us laugh, cry, shake our heads, and roll our eyes. At 27 years old, I am more than happy to revisit the shame of a well-placed stereotype, the ludicrousness of a Jessica Wakefield scheme, the irritation of another description of twin girls with perfect size six figures.

I’ll be posting an entry for each SVH book as I read them, in order of publication … This is really just a fun little project for myself as there are already several other blogs out there that do the exact same thing! (See: http://thedairiburger.wordpress.com/, http://community.livejournal.com/1bruce1/, http://web.mac.com/mcflaxbart/Sweet_Valley_Diaries/Blog/Blog.html — all lots of fun 🙂 I also plan to pick up the re-issues of the SVH novels and see what those are all about as well …

It’s especially fun for me because the last SVH book that I read was #92, She’s Not What She Seems, with crazy old Paula Perrine! So, I’m afraid I’ve completely missed out on the whole Jungle Prom, Morning After, earthquakes, werewolves, Secret Diaries thang … but that’s about to change. To tell you the truth, I can’t tell you if that’s good or bad. We’re about to find out!
