I Can't Help Myself

I have very fond memories of the Sweet Valley High books. For some time, I faithfully trekked to the bookstore every month and purchased the new one along with the latest Nancy Drew Casefile. The Super Thrillers were my favorites. And that's why I'm going to be reading this when it comes out in March:
Ten years later. Oh, the drama!

  2. Yep, I'll be right there with you!

    I was also a faithful purchaser of the SVH books every month. I still remember how EXCITING it was to see a new one on the shelf in the supermarket.

  4. I was a bit young for SVH. I did read Sweet Valley Twins, though. I wonder if I'd still get something out of this new book...

    I never read Sweet Valley High. I read The Cheerleaders series. I still regret donating all of them to the library!

    This, however, makes me curious about the series. Such a great idea.

  6. Wow! What a flashback. I devoured Sweet Valley Twins and then moved on to Sweet Valley High. They were the only books I read in school. I didn't discover my love of books until after I graduated College. But the SVT and SVH has a special place in my heart because they were my first.

  7. LOVE Sweet Valley. SVH's were the first books that I read in secret b/c I wasn't really allowed to read them. So scandalous! The board game is also pretty awesome. I can't wait for Ten Years Later :)

  9. I'm curious too! I grew up reading the Sweet Valley book that my older cousins passed on to me.

  10. Wow, I remember reading a few of these. I always preferred Sweet Valley High to Sweet Valley Twins, but I read very few of the former. I got a couple from the library and was then told I wasn't allowed to read them because I was "too young" for topics like love. By the time I was "old enough" I never ended up reading that many for some reason.

    I do remember regularly watching the TV show when it was on, though.

    Oh, I wish you hadn't told me about this. Now *I* might have to read it too.

  13. I am so excited for this one. :D I love that the cover looks like the classic Sweet Valley books too. I still can't let go of my old Sweet Valley books (although most of my collection are Twins and Junior High and oh, Unicorn Club!). One day I'm going to have to let go of them...but maybe after I read this. :D

  15. LOVED Sweet Valley High. Only I didn't buy them, I borrowed from the library. Same with Nancy Drew. I love that there is more SVH to come.

Review | More Than We Can Tell by Brigid Kemmerer

My online book group does a Secret Santa exchange every year, and this last year mine knocked it out of the park. She sent me a copy of Brigid Kemmerer's Letters to the Lost along with the most creative accompanying letter and series of clues and mementos tied to a fictional relationship not even wholly of this world. It tied in perfectly with the book and, once I read it, her creativity and extra mile effort meant that much more. I thoroughly enjoyed the novel and immediately sought out the companion book featuring Declan's enigmatic best friend Rev. More Than We Can Tell begins shortly after the events of Letters to the Lost and, while Declan and Juliet are in the story, it focuses primarily on Rev and a new character named Emma Blue. I was already half in love with Rev Fletcher from the glimpses we get of him in the first book, so it was in no way surprising that I fell into his story without a hitch. This book can definitely be read as a standalone, though I think it is e…

Blog Tour Review + Giveaway | Lady Derring Takes a Lover by Julie Anne Long

I'm delighted to be a part of the blog tour for this first novel in Julie Anne Long's new historical series―The Palace of Rogues. I found my way to Ms. Long's writing in a bit of a piecemeal fashion. Her long-running Pennyroyal Green series is widely beloved and records the various and sundry escapades of the always-scheming, never repentant Eversea and Redmond families. Really, the series is worth the price of admission for the hilarious (and ever-evolving) "Ballad of Colin Eversea" alone (though Colin's is not actually my favorite book). But I've come to believe that this sweeping eleven-book series has something for every reader. You just have to dip your toes in enough times to find your favorites. And once you do, they will become instant and confirmed comfort reads. Spoiler alert: mine are It Happened One Midnightand What I Did for a Duke. I'm sorry, Colin, but the Duke of Falconbridge, you are not. You'll be just fine, though. Madeleine ha…

Illustrated Pretties

I can't resist with these three. I love a good illustrated cover so much, and these three are not only just beautiful but include a couple of delicious retellings, a debut novel, and at least three young women who sound as fierce and determined and real as I could hope for on this International Women's Day. Put them on your calendars. I'm feeling the good feelings.

The Guinevere Deceptionby Kiersten White
This cover, you guys. This cover . . . I love it so much. And I haven't read a good Arthurian retelling in far too long. In this version, Guinevere is not at all what she seems. Summoned by Merlin to keep Arthur safe, she is a changeling who gives everything up to protect Camelot. GOOD YES GOOD.
Due out November 5th
