Waiting On Wednesday: Sweet Valley Confidential

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Jill @ Breaking The Spine and allows us to spotlight books we are eagerly anticipating

This weeks choice:


One of the most successful series of all time is back, and this time it's for adults

It’s been ten years since the Wakefield twins graduated from Sweet Valley High, and a lot has happened.

For a start, Elizabeth and Jessica have had a falling out of epic proportions, after Jessica committed the ultimate betrayal, and this time it looks like Elizabeth will never be able to forgive her.

Suddenly Sweet Valley isn’t big enough for the two of them, so Elizabeth has fled to New York to immerse herself in her lifelong dream of becoming a serious reporter, leaving a guilt-stricken Jessica contemplating the unthinkable: life without her sister.

Despite the distance between them, the sisters are never far from each other’s thoughts. Jessica longs for forgiveness, but Elizabeth can’t forget her twin’s duplicity. Uncharacteristically, she decides the only way to heal her broken heart is to get revenge. Always the ‘good’ twin, the one getting her headstrong sister out of trouble, Elizabeth is now about to turn the tables...

So this released in the US yesterday I believe but not until 14th April in the UK (by Arrow publishing). When I first heard about it last year I was excited..I grew up on Sweet Valley books! Then I read the first chapter online, and to be honest it was terrible, but a OMG I can't wait to read more terrible. Anyway, I forgot about it until I was reminded yesterday and got all excited again. Also, I love the fact the UK publishers have gone with the retro, original style covers. This is definitely guilty pleasure reading I feel with a good old dose of nostalgia, and I can't wait!
