Aaaaand they're back!

If you're anything like me (a 20-something female), you very may well have read the Sweet Valley Twins/High books, by Francine Pascal.

If not, you should still follow this link.

Here's a teaser:

" It was as if billions of possibilities all fell together perfectly. Twice.”

If you think that's good, you should read the rest of the teaser.

Trust me, if you're feeling bad about your own writing, this will cheer you. Considerably.



pardon me while I get my pre-order on...

I actually didn't read these growing up. I read "Secret of the Unicorn Queen" series and a lot of scary books by Christopher Pike.

welcome to my world of poetry said...

I used to read alot whilst growing up but mainly about musical composers as I was studying music.

I enjoyed your post,

Yvonne.

OOOH i'm with Aubrie. LOVE me some Pike!

I never read SVH. I think it had to do with the fact that i was a twin, so i really had no desire to read about another pair. Not if there wasn't monsters or junk.

that said, we did have the SVH board game which was AWESOME and now i immediately want to drive to my parent's house to see if they still have it

I used to love these growing up! Not so sure about now but if it makes me feel good about my writing then hey, I'm there.

Dude, I must be old. OLD.

Also, is this new bloggy look trying to herald in cooler autumn weather?

How're the kittens?

Lola loves you. Word.

Love the fall look! I'm so ready for fall to hurry up and get here already. It's way too hot here. Bring on the pumpkins and apples!

I was obsessed with those Wakefield sisters and even have my protagonist secretly reading them!! Haha, this is awesome!

You have just about the best dry (I mean that in a good way, my husband is just like this too), witty humor of anyone I know.

Go get your preorder on. :):):) Too funny.

I'll have to check it out, i could use a good cheer up :)

And I LOVE the new look of your blog. LOVE IT, love it, love it. I want it to be fall right now!

I think these were (ahem) just after my time. :)

Bamboozled!
