New book, "Sweet Valley Confidential," catches up with Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield, now in their late 20s. For some reason, this makes me laugh my ass off, but I'm not sure I'll be able to resist reading it out of morbid curiosity, kinda like with the Sex and the City movies.

OMG the tv series was so trashy and the books adorable. We also had the Sweet Valley Board Game. My sisters never let me play as one of the twins.

Huh... I think I may have to read this! Certainly can't be any worse than some of the dreck I've read over the years. We too had the board game. I was a little older when we got it, but it was still surprisingly fun. I was always Elizabeth. :)

Hehe, I am SO glad to know I wasn't the only one who had the board game, LOL :rofl:

I will definitely have to read this book. I'm sure it will be quite entertaining for all of us who grew up with them. :)

I remember reading that series when I was growing up!

I found the board game in my parents' basement a few years ago and brought it home. I play it with friends every once in a while for shits & giggles. We used to think Winston looked so nerdy, but now I was like hey, he's kinda hot... :lol:

Can't wait to read this book! It's going to be total trash. :D

I remember my cousin mailing me copies of the Sweet Valley High books when we were like 11 or 12. We thought we were big shots to be reading about these older girls who went on dates.

why would you want to be one of the twins when you could be Lila? :P

I can't believe there was/is a board game and I didn't know about it. :eek: Where have I been? :wuzrobbed:fragile:

Oh well. What was the object of the game? Did the winner get a set of matching lavaliere necklaces to go their blue-green eyes? :P

I am all about SVH. My favourites are the ones people never talk about: Caroline, Olivia (love her!) and Ken Matthews. And Steven and Cara are my OTP. And I was depressed for WEEKS when Regina died.

My little sister (7.5 years my junior) was obsessed with the SVH books and had all of them, which she read over and over.

She would then "play" Sweet Valley High with her Barbie and Ken dolls :lol:, but the adventures she came up with were not exactly the kind of wholesome antics of Jessica, Elizabeth, and their friends :rofl: :EVILLE: ,

My friend Loren and I used to eavesdrop spy on her while she and her BFF Libby were playing SVH (Loren and I nicknamed them "Slutty Vixen Ho's,' :lol: ), and I gotta say, the story lines those two 10 year-olds came up with were far more entertaining that what had to have gone on in those books. Since this was back the '80s, I'd say those two must have drawn some of their inspiration from watching waayyyy to many videos on MTV to come up with some of the "adventures" those twins got into :rofl: .


When it came to those kinds of books, I myself was more of a Trixie Belden girl (if anyone remembers that series). Back when I was reading them, I always thought *those* books should have been made into a TV series instead of that god-awful "Nancy Dres/Hardy Boys Mystery Series (with Pamela Sue Martin, Parker Stevenson, and Shaun Cassidy) :blah: :yawn:

Wooo! I used to read all the trashy stuff. This, Baby Sitter's Club and more...

I want to read this :shuffle: But I have important exams coming up and don't want to buy it. What a dilemma :drama:

That's awesome!! I had the board game too...and was always Enid! haha

I was always Enid, too.

The TV show was so horrible, yet my cousin and I would always watch it every Saturday morning. :lol:

Did anyone notice that sometimes the books would say "Created by Francine Pascal," but written by someone else?

And I loved The Babysitters Club! I stopped collecting/reading the books at number 90-something, but I also had all of the "Super Specials," etc. I even wrote to Ann M. Martin and she sent me a signed letter back. I was so excited.

I took the Babysitters Club prequal that came out last year out from the library. It was quite the flashback.
