Review: Sweet Valley High #1 Double Love

Review: Sweet Valley High #1 Double Love

The tagline: Will Jessica steal Todd from Elizabeth? The answer: Yes of course! It’s par for the course with Jessica Wakefield, one half of Sweet Valley High’s beloved (or not!) twin sisters who are the envy of everyone who comes across their path. The golden-haired 16 year-old beauties Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield were the main protagonists of this long-running series. I think a little background is needed here. I was a […]

Cinder by Marissa Meyer

To say that I loved this book would be an understatement. As a rule, I adore fairy tale retellings. I also love dystopian settings. Combining the story of Cinderella with a dystopian theme = win!

P.S. I Love You by Barbara Conklin

Not to be confused with the novel of the same name by Cecelia Ahern (which was turned into a movie starring Gerard Butler and Hilary Swank), P.S. I Love You by Barbara Conklin was the first book in the titular Sweet Dreams series (think Harlequin or Mills and Boon novels except aimed at the teenage market). My previous blog entry on the Sweet Dreams Series provided a bit more detail on […]
