BTW, the link Mozart gave is awesome!
The Evil Twin ruled!
Elizabeth was always into horses, and in SVT #8 First Place, Lila Fowler actaully gets a horse, but Elizabeth is the one who ends up exercising it and taking care of it, buddying up to Lila to do so, and pissing off Jessica in the process.Never really got into the SVH/SVT books, except one or two--there was one where Elizabeth took up horseback riding, and one where there was some girl who moved from middle-of-nowhere KY or something? (Might even be the same book.)
I can't remember the name of the other book (I think it was SVT #24 or so - I have the first 33 SVT books, and then I outgrew the series), but I remember the girl's name was Ginny Lu Culpepper. IIRC the horse's name in the story was Snow White.
I was too old for them, but I did read the Sweet Valley University series, as it was very popular at my library. All I remember is that Elizabeth gained the Freshman 15 in one of them.
Oh, the horror!
Stacey and Dawn were always my favorite BSC members. Whenever we played any type of make believe where we gave each other new names, I was always Stacey Dawn
The teacher told us to write down the name we wanted to appear on the certificate. Claudia was my name of the week, and the instructions seemed vague enough that I didn't need to use my ACTUAL name.
I read the BSC club until I was way too old for it. Stacey was my favorite. Remember when she started hanging out with those girls who hung out at the mall? And took whine to a U4Me concert? Bad, bad girls
And all the bitchery when Mary Anne cut her hair.
I love this blog that recaps all the books:
I haven't read too many good reviews of the Confidential book either but heck, the books themselves didn't get very good reviews either back then (according to one article at least) so who cares?! It should be good fun anyway. I'm starting to wonder how I'll feel reading about these two girls and all their friends dealing with grown up problems though. I have enough problems myself...where's the escapism here?! LOL
An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”

I occassionally see used copies in thrift stores, but I haven't come across any that I didn't think I already had (or remembered having). If I ever have a daughter, I want to share them with her and I'd like a complete set.
Count me in with the formerly BSC and SV obsessed. I'm so going to have to read the new book. I think the last series from Sweet Valley was when Elizabeth was dating a jerk and Jessica tries to prevent them getting serious, upsetting Liz to the point of running away to London for a summer program. Except the deadline was passed so she had no room and board or money, and becomes a maid. To royalty of course.
