Sweet Valley Confidential!

You guys are going to think I'm fabulously nerdy, but I last year I wrote the release date of Sweet Valley Confidential: Ten Years Later on my calendar, totally planning on hitting up Barnes & Noble when it was released March 29.

As usual, I wasn't able to sneak out of work and other obligations on time to go pick it up, but I did scout it out on Amazon. If you have a Kindle, you can download the first chapter for free; the full Kindle book is only $9.99.



I read through the first few pages on Amazon and was intrigued. Elizabeth is living in NYC? And she's not with Todd? I also laughed when I read that she was carrying a Prada knockoff - something Jessica, Lila and the rest of the Unicorns would never get caught with!

I have to admit, the first bit of the book wasn't what I was expecting. I grew up reading Sweet Valley Twins, then moved on to Sweet Valley High and even read the first couple of books in Sweet Valley University.  I'm still going to read it though, as I think it will be fun and nostalgic to see what the Wakefield twins are up to.

Maybe I was a little disappointed in the first few pages because I never really liked Elizabeth anyway! She was boring!  Jessica and her friends were much more exciting and fashionable, so I would have rather read about her to draw me into the book.  I can't wait to see what she is up to...I read somewhere that she is a divorcee!

I read online that there has been some great "fan fiction" written over the years. Does anyone know how to find this?  I really thought this was something only Twilight fans did! I googled and the few links I found were kind of blah.

Which twin was your favorite?  Do you plan on reading SV Confidential?

Now if only the Baby Sitter's Club would have a reunion, I'd be all set with a stack of books by my bed for those late night feedings!
