A 30-something's lovingly sarcastic journey through all of Sweet Valley High, and then some

A COMPLETE List of ALL Sweet Valley High Books

This is the complete list of Sweet Valley High books from start to finish with publication dates. (Note: Most publication dates are based on the copyright date in the book, not the known publication date. For instance, Double Love has an October 1983 copyright date, and October was given as the release month by Bantam, but the actual release date was September 15, 1983.)

I originally kept this blog on Blogspot, so entries ahead of book 30 might be formatted kind of funky until I eventually get around to fixing those.


The original books were all released by Bantam.

Other stuff:

Review wish list:
Sweet Valley High Plot “Bible” – An informative collection of papers given to SV ghostwriters to help them write their books. I wrote to Alloy packaging (SV 2008 series) after a ghostwriter I spoke with told me they might have an old copy of this somewhere, but I received no response from Alloy. Someone send me your old copy or scans!

Love Letters
newsletters from Bantam – Free publication, released for an unknown number of issues in the 80s for Sweet Valley High and Sweet Dreams fans. Included interviews with the ghostwriters, tidbits, news, and “gossip” about the characters. I’d love to see these!

Issues 3 or later of The Oracle newsletter (I don’t think these exist)Any drafts of any unreleased Sweet Valley stories or books in the series

Any Sweet Valley Confidential merchandise or promo gifts (T-shirts, compacts, etc.)

Anything else I don’t know about

I will consider reviewing other non-book stuff besides what’s listed here.

Note and disclaimer: I am not offering any part of my collection for trade or sale. If anyone offers to sell or trade you anything on or through this blog, I am not a part of that and I am not responsible for it in any way, shape, or form; proceed at your own risk. (For those curious, I obtained the vast majority of my current collection via eBay.)

Comments on: "A COMPLETE List of ALL Sweet Valley High Books" (90)

  1. […] the UK only, so I had to pay a little extra shipping, but not too too much. I’ve added it to my list of books to review, but if you can’t wait till then, check out Alibris, Amazon.com’s Marketplace, or Ebay […]

  2. Hiya, i don’t have spares to offer, but I do have scans of all 3 of the SVH doll books that were released — you can find them here http://www.svunlimited.net/books/svh_dollbooks/booksinmerc.html feel — free to use them. Also, if you’d like scans of the SVH 1995 Magazine – e-mail me and i’ll try and send them your way

    • Thanks! That’s so helpful! I think I’ll add them to my regular review list then – 1993 right? No months that these were released? And I would love some scans of the 1995 magazine. Was that the only issue ever released?

      Is your email the same as the regular SV Unlimited site email?

      Thanks much for all your help, it is very appreciated! 🙂

      • yep, only the ever one issue –not sure why though, as it promises to deliver more in future issues o.O (ha! such lies). I can try n get you the scans in the next couple of days or so, as i’ll have my hard drive w/ me then, just buzz me a quick e-mail to livfreeverse[at]gmail[.]com so it registers my end. As for the months of those 3 doll books, sorry, i have absolutely no idea as i’ve pretty much scanned the inside-outs of all three, and it merely states ‘printed in 1993’ on the inside. I can imagine it’s quite annoying for you, seeing as you’re a stickler for date order though 😛 lol. Also as an aside, I’m loving going through your recaps & seeing what the back of each book has to offer -ad-wise- I’ve got mostly SVH UK books and our ads are so boring, we might as well not even have them.

  3. do you need elizabeths diaries & jessicas diaries? if so

    might be a bit extra shipping wise

    • Hi, thanks for offering, but I do have all of the books on the *main* list on this page 🙂 (just looking for the ones in the bottom section)

  4. sorry just navigating about, your blogs are so funny i actually tears streaming down my face

  5. I am so excited reading your list. It is the most thorough one I have been able to find! I had ALL of the SVH and SVU books. I ended up giving them all away in a huge box to a friend that was a couple years younger than me. I thought I was finished with SV until I heard about the one that was released this year. I pounced on it and now I am in the process of trying to collect all the books again. 🙂 I have been able to find some lists that are broken up and I knew didn’t include some of the super editions, etc. I guess collecting SV books is a pretty cheap hobby and I am enjoying re-reading the SVU books. I feel like I am too old to read the SVH books now (I am 29 and will be 30 in January!!) but will anyway. I have my ‘big girl’ books (Shopaholic, SATC, etc) but reading these, especially with it being summer time, really takes me back to the good old days of no worries in my life.
    So I thank you for taking the time to make this list. I guess when I buy my first house, I will have an entire bookcase dedicated to SV. :))))))

    Where is “Carnival Ghost” searched and searched can’t find anywhere?

    Where can I find “A Night to Remember” ,The Morning After. The Arrest. And The Verdict? Is my only chance finding them online?

    • You might be able to track them down in a used bookshop, but online is your best bet. You could look for them on Ebay, Amazon, or Alibris. Amazon will probably have best condition and range of prices, but you can sometimes find good bulk lot deals on Ebay. 🙂

    hi i collected the books yrs ago and now my daughter wants to collect them where can i find the ones with the dolls and your list is really good cant believe it was that long ago also how many dvds did they bring out i can only find season 1

    • The books that come with the dolls are pretty hard to find! I’ve only been able to find the doll sets on Ebay, and they are quite expensive. If you want to read them online, they used to be available at a site called Sweet Valley Unlimited, but it currently looks like the site might be down. I’ll try to check with the site owner and see what the status is!

      As for the DVDs – unfortunately, Season 1 is the only one that’s ever been released. Kind of odd considering the huge nostalgic fan base!

  10. I love the sweet valley series. I’m 37 and I read a lot of them as a teen, I gave all the books I had away and now I’m regretting it. I never read anything before sweet valley twins and I’ve never read entire series. I would love to find them and start reading all over again. Do you think they will ever be able to turn the books into e- books? It would be so much easier? Thanks for your list, I don’t have a lot of space in my house to have such a huge collection, I guess I’ll have to just go to my local library and see what I can find. It would be so great if I could just read all the books online. I already have sweet valley confidential and now the 6 part serial ebooks that just came out.

    • Hey Rose, I have good news for you. The first twelve Sweet Valley High books are being re-released in e-book format this fall. The first one is coming out on October 1st!

  11. I have a copy of the newsletter, “Love Letters” if you would like me to scan it and email it to you it would be my pleasure! I was a huge SVH fan and sent away for it, unfortunately it is the only one that ever arrived, but I have kept it these past 20 years! I started rereading SVH when I found them in my parents attic last month and I am obsessed all over again! So glad to see I am not the only one! P.S. don’t bother with the T.V. show, I bought it and it is horrendous! Plus is interferes with my image of the characters and I hate that! Hope the movie is better!

  12. I had two of the sweet valley fan club newsletters, but I have no idea where they are, I think they were issue 3 and 4 or something wierd like that, so there are more than the two that are advertised in the fan club membership tear out page from the books (why do you only get two, and then you aren’t every given an option to renew or whatever?).. I’m hoping to find them in a shed my dad errected in the backyard at my childhood home, but I need cooler weather to search for them. I did find my fan club pencil box. I don’t know what I was thinking at the time, but I have cut-outs from all the doll boxes (photos, the car keys, the descriptions of the outfits). I wasn’t able to get 2 of the outfit sets, but I scoured Toys R Us for weeks in my area trying to find them when they came out. I can’t even remember how old I was, but I graduated high school in 1998. I guess I could never drop this damn SV obsession. The TV show was hit or miss.. literally. It never had the same time spot in my town, and I never knew if it would be on. The TV listing in the newspaper would say it’s on at 11 am on a Sunday, and it wouldn’t be on. I don’t even think it made it to the fourth season here. I did stop reading the books midway though highschool.. I’d like to say, maybe it was my senior year, I don’t know. Only in the last few years have I started collecting and reading them. I was excited to see the “biographies” you posted from some of the first editions of the books. This makes me want to scour used book stores more! You can’t hardly find these books anymore. Maybe there will be a resurgence if the movie is popular?


  14. I Really love sweet valley!!…..I live in Pakistan,Karachi…I can’t find many books here and it’s hard for me to do it online..Do u know any bookstore that might help..BDW ur list is GREAT!!!

  15. I saw the page at the back of the book i saw the page about the fan club i really want to join but it will take a long procedure Is there any website from where i can join the club???and do u know any SV movie i can download and watch…i don’t care if the movie is of SVK or SVH..if its a movie of sweet valley plz tell me the names and briefly tell about them..thanku!

  16. I just found a box of Sweet Valley Books as I was unpacking from a move. Would anyone like to buy them from me?

    Please contact me at: efo.florida@hotmail.com

    I do not want to throw these treasures away. Thanks

      Hi are they sweet valley high, twins, uni etc? I’m trying to rebuild my collection and have managed to complete SVH and SVU. I think I want senior year next or sweet valley twins…

    I just found this website a few weeks ago and I love it! I used to own most of these books (we picked them up at a garage sale) but we gave them away when we moved and I had not read another one since I was in middle school. Not only do your recaps bring back the memories of reading them as a pre-adolescent who thought they were the height of sophisticated literature, they also add the wonderfully snarky flavor of real life perspective! I enjoy this website so much! Thank you!

  18. Very good blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little
    lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any tips? Kudos!

  19. Hi I Dont know if anyone can help. I used to have a Sweet Valley book which I am pretty sure was about the fowlers and started out telling the background of her family tree. I cannot find it anywhere but Loved it and have looked through this list and the only one I can find doesnt seem to have the right blurb? Help me !!

  20. Nicola Foot said:

    Hi I would love to read the books that came with the dolls but like you said they are crazy expensive to buy online! Is there any way you could email them to me so I could read them too please?

    • Hi! I’m currently trying to figure out what I did with those – I had them saved somewhere but I can’t find them. I’ll keep looking and I will comment again if I find them. I got my copies as scans from the Sweet Valley Unlimited site which is currently down (but should be relaunching in the near future).

  21. I have a box of these books and wondering if anyone would like to purchase them?

  22. We have almost 1,500 copies of Sweet Valley High books (mostly in very good condition) as well as hundreds of Kids, Twins, University series. Some are listed on our website – http://www.readingwell.com. Email us if you’re interested in buying any (or all!) I can make and send special lists for anyone.

  23. I have numerous copies for sale.

  24. […] Valley High books. There were about a bazillion of these books published and up until I read the full list books posted on Snark Valley’s blog, I thought I’d read a good chunk of them. Clicking my way […]

  25. Come back and finish reviewing the series!!! You’ve made the holidays bearable. You’re hysterical!!!

  26. it is the best book ever

  27. It’s funny I found this site bc I have been re-reading the SVH series and I think these summaries are hysterical. I was so into these books as a kid and to read them again as am adult takes me back. Can anyone really stand Jessica though ? She is one evil bitch. I was never a fan of Todd and was so happy when he moved and she started dating Jeffrey. Enid is just such a drop. Amy Sutton, couldn’t stand her. I was livid when she tore up Regina and Bruce when I read On the Edge as a kid. I haven’t gotten to that one yet but it is around the corner. I was so annoyed that everyone was high and mighty with Molly….hello Bruce and Amy! They started it all! And Liz. I mean come on. There is a limit to what one person can accept in terms of being naive. I have not read the 10 years later addition and I’m glad I read your blog on it bc that is all just unacceptable. Steven and Aaron? Jessica and Todd? Bruce and Liz. Come on now! Anyway I love your summaries. Thanks for putting this up.

  28. This piece of writing gives clear idea in favor of
    the new people of blogging, that in fact how to do running
    a blog.

  29. Thanks for the review on the books. This is so cool. I grew up reading the books. Wish I could re-read all of them as an adult. I bought some of the high school and university copies on eBay but don’t have close to what is a complete set. So thanks for making this awesome listing.

  30. Have completed the collection, except for the UK magazine. All series, including the 1997 UK annual. If you need anything looked up, let me know. Used to have them all catalogued but lost them all in a move, so started over from scratch.

  31. I have loved SVH since I Read crash landing at age 13 now I will be 40 come September. Trying to find # s 109 140 & 142 so that at least my number ones of the series is complete. Have nearly all the thrillers sagas super stars magna and what ever else of the specialty book. Missing 3 of the 6 diaries. Want to sell them all but think they will sell higher if I complete it first. Got to admit I have been fighting the urge to ‘re-read them instead of selling them.

  32. Are these the same book list that were about them being kids and stuff? Cause when I came to US on ’96 I read a few and love them. Trying to find them now for my kids to enjoy!

  33. Hi Karen. Try eBay I’ve been rebuilding my collection as I lost over half of them through the last twenty years. Found some good deals on there and a lot of the ones I lost including the ones you put down. Good luck Hun.

    I have started rereading the series this month after finding a huge bin of books from my middle school days. I found a map of Sweet Valley in there. Not sure what it was from, but kind of fun to see where everyone lived!

    • This is SO random Michelle but I would love to see this map! I had a map of SV when I was a kid but I can’t recall what item it came with – so I would love to see your map and maybe buy it off you if you’re interested. Again, I know this is totally random but the map is so nostalgic for me.

  35. Hi great that you did all this uhm all I want to know is where can I download all the sweet valley books to read on my pc I tried collecting them but think I bit off more than I could chew there’s too many and not all the librabries I bought it at had even a complete series so I kicked myself almost had a lila fit and calmed down now I’m waiting and scoping untill I have them all.

    I used to LOVE these books when I was young and reading through all this was a such a great trip down memory lane! Your description of the books is hilarious! I’d been thinking about reading the books again but I won’t put myself through it now!

  41. I know this is a loooong time after this post, so you may HATE Sweet Valley now… haha! But you’re still looking for some of those post book 94 books, I have a few. A few years ago I got the bright idea to “complete my collection” and started ordering off Ebay and whatnot, and more often than not there would be sets that would be sold, and so I ended up with several copies. (That also goes for anyone on here) I have some SVT and SVK as well as some SVU books I think too. If you’re interested, let me know and we’ll see what I we can do!)

    Awesome! I look forward to reading more reviews and getting email updates!

  43. Hi elizabeth where do u stay?

  44. […] meant ‘girl books’ from series like The Babysitter’s Club and Sweet Valley High were verboten […]

  45. Maggie LeVine said:

    Thank you SO much for these recaps! I was Googling 1984 fashions and somehow your blog came up. I was a huge SVH fan in junior high/high school and reading this was a fun trip down Memory Lane. You got much farther in than I did (I think I stopped around Claire’s quarterback stint and Regina’s camera incident), but I look forward to reading the rest of your reviews! 🙂

    Where are the reviews for evil twin and beyond? Really looking forward to them!

    I really love reading Sweet Valley High books ..
    They are all so interesting

  48. I have one copy of the Oracle that came in the fan club box if you are interested, I can scan it for you. I love this series! Don’t know if you know this yet or not but they recently put the majority of the SVH books on kindle unlimited, except for the super editions. I’m currently reading through the entire series for the first time and have already read 60+ books this year. Also, you can read the super editions (and probably the remainder of the series) for free on openlibrary.org – comes in very handy and you can read them on your phone! Keep up the good work on the blog, it’s absolutely hilarious!

  49. […] spend time reading even when I had friends over (hello, Berenstain Bears, Baby Sitter’s Club, Sweet Valley High, Where the Red Fern Grows, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, Alaska Bear Talesand The Shadow […]

    Hi i want to get the comolete sweet valley on your list thru ebook or kindle app. Can you help me? Thabks!

  51. I just started up the series again – and I’m in my late 30s! I regret never reading the entire series, but luckily, http://www.openlibrary.org exists!

  52. Okay, I am old, 50+, I had this series when I was in HS. This snark review page is hilarious! I got rid of the series when I started travelling, but now I have most of the first 100 books back. Please keep reviewing the books, as sometimes I often thought that Liz should have grown a backbone and told her sister to screw off. So keep going. I think you are doing great.

  53. I own every one of these books including all sweet valley twins, kids, unicorns etc. I also have all of the audio tapes, slam book, her autograph, the dolls, a jacket from the set of the show etc etc would love to follow any of you on instagram !

  54. “Issue #2 of the Oracle newsletter for the Sweet Valley High fan club (though I have reason to believe it was never released)”
    A pink, Oracle Volume II newsletter does exist — though I think it’s even more rare to find than the first. I have a fan photo of it which was taken by a collector in the fandom many moons ago.

    • That’s awesome about Oracle #2! If you don’t mind, can you send me the photo? I can post it in a future blog post (crediting you with it under whatever name you prefer) and “review” it (however much there is visible in the photo to review :)). You can send it to snarkvalley AT gmail

  55. Came across your blogs whilst trying to find a full list of the books. Absolutely loving your reviews. Totally hilarious you’ve had me in complete stitches. Currently rereading them myself, more for nostalgia really…

    I have a collection of Sweet Valley books that my daughter read. I’m not sure what to do with them. Any suggestions?

    • As long as they’re decent condition, you can probably sell them on eBay or Amazon. Or pretty much any thrift shop you donate them to will be happy to have them.

    Where is the super chiller “carnival ghost”?

    Do you have any information on the cassette audio books that were released in the mid 80’s…I had the #5 All Night Long cassette, it was hilarious…
