Lime Green Triumph!

My husband spotted Lila’s car in Aspen, CO!


I’m spending the summer away from home and I failed to bring any of my SVT books with me. I’ve been trying to lay my hands on copies of the next few books, but it’s slow going. Hopefully I’ll come across them soon!

    Hey – go to for SVT books (or any of them). It’s 3.43 a book PLUS free shipping. Hope that helps!!

    Thanks, I’ll check it out!

    Hi Shannon, long time no see. I’ve been busy writing my version of Sweet Valley High as I got the graduation ceremony set up for the twins and all their friends by 2013. You know if they were smart in writing the 150 chapters, modified the ones that didn’t have a thing to do with the twins, they could’ve squeezed out 4 years of high school instead of 10 years worth of spring dances, proms, Christmases, and what nots. I was on vacation in Alaska. I took the cruise ship. Best place for books also is

    When Sweet Valley graduates in my version, the football team will have won 3 championships with Claire the quarterback (Ken Matthews in my version gives his spot up to Claire) and 3 basketball championships with The Honeybee girls’ basketball team.

    Amazon does have all of Sweet Valley ever made, and most are 1 cent used, BUT shipping is 4 or 5 bucks, which puts the books at a little bit more than YourOnlineBookstore (though I did discover them through Amazon). 3.43 a book with free shipping is the cheapest I have seen, beating Amazon. The only benefit to Amazon is that they have every book, whereas YOB doesn’t always have all of them… they just have most of them.

    Hi Shannon, I recently discovered your blog. It’s hilarious, especially the cover recaps. Anyway, has anyone ever noticed the huge similarity between Sweet Valley High and “Beverly Hills, 90210”? It’s like 90210 completely lifted story lines from SVH. The main characters on 90210 are a blend of various SVH players. Ex: Kelly=part Jessica, part Lila. As I’m reading the books again and watching 90210 reruns, the similarities are ridiculous.

    Actually, Wendy, Dallas comes to mind with some of Dynasty and Knots Landing in reading Sweet Valley. Whenever Jessica is scheming, I see an image of the late JR Ewing on Jessica’s face and Elizabeth is the Bobby Ewing of the family, or sometimes, Jessica can be Alexis Colby.

    Darren, I hadn’t thought of the Dallas, Dynasty, or Knots Landing connection, but I guess I can see that. The more I read these books, the more annoyed I become with Elizabeth and her preachy, self-righteous attitude. Get over yourself.

    Whilst having a big clean up, I have come across my entire set of SVU books. Looking at them, and all the covers featuring the Daniel twins, brought back a lot of memories: Liz not fitting in and getting unacceptably fat out of misery (oh, what a surprise!), Jessica marrying Mike McAllery, Billie and Steven, Tom Watts, Nick Fox, Nina, ‘Alexandra’, Todd the jock jerk, Dana Upshaw, the lifeguards, Sam, Neil, the road trips, LIz running away to live with royalty in London… Lol! I know they seem to have been blitzed from SV canon, but I loved this series, especially in the early days!

    That car is AWESOME! And yes, it does look like Bender from Futurama. lol

    @Mad Dog

    SVU was my favorite, except for sophomore year. I absolutely loved it in all its craziness. And the thriller editions were the best. Ever notice how they all ripped off beloved movies? Wanted for Murder was basically Thelma and Louise, for instance.

    The Elizabeth series was fab too. Liz and Lord Max are my sweet valley OTP.

    Hi, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility
    issues. When I look at your website in Opera, it
    looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, excellent blog!
