Urgh. Dreadful. Too much plot, and none of the underlying fun/niceness of the original series
Monday evening reading!
This book, I thought was not far off from a lot of chick lit – very soap opera-like. I didn‘t like some of the outcomes of the characters I read so much of when I was younger, but I didn‘t think the story was really so terrible (again, in comparison to other chick lit). Though some of the characters really didn‘t seem to have grown up much, I still found it somewhat entertaining, and it was a fast read.
When this book first came out I was so looking forward to it! I grew up devouring the sweet valley books and was super stoked when she released this... However, it was a giant disappointment 😔

I've seen some pretty dismal reviews for this, but I've wanted to indulge in this guilty pleasure for awhile! I LOVED these books as a kid, I even had the board game! (Also, can you tell my furry kids are feeling a little attention starved?)
@Jellybeanbon your Sweet Valley High photo made me feel nostalgic. After work, I stopped at a thrift shop (that sells amazing books) and this is the first book I saw. I didn't even know it existed. It apparently takes place 10 years after Sweet Valley High.
