Beachy Book Reviews

The beach was perfect. I got tons of sun and knocked 2 books off my summer reading list. I'll share pictures from our vacation soon but I wanted to go ahead and do a couple of book reviews.


The first book I read on vacation was Sweet Valley Confidential. I grew up being a huge Sweet Valley fan. Maybe that will soften my next sentence. This book was the worst thing I have ever read. It was terrible. I had to make myself finish it.




These Things Hidden is the second book from Heather Gudenkauf. I read her debut novel last year and loved it. These Things Hidden is a definite must read. This book reads so fast due to the very short chapters and I love the way it is told from several view points.

I had heard that about the new SVH! I too loved it when I was younger.

I've heard that the Sweet Valley book was terrible. That makes me sad because I LOVED those books!

Thanks for the heads up about Sweet Valley - I loved those books. Won't waste my time with this one, though!

This is the 2nd bad review I've read about Sweet Valley. I'll definitely be skipping that one. These Things Hidden sounds really good.
