31: BITTER RIVALS

11/1/2018
More
The classic sitcom was wrong - three's definitely not company, as poor old Enid finds out when Elizabeth's childhood best friend Amy Sutton moves back to town. Meanwhile Jessica uses her new agony aunt powers for evil, Lila displays a frankly worrying obsession with her hunky cousin, and a fancy dress party inspires some amazing - and amazingly boring - ensembles.

30: ALONE IN THE CROWD

10/18/2018
More
It's finally here - the greatest ever title and the best ever cover in the Sweet Valley canon. This books has got Elizabeth at her most patronising. It's got musical loner Lynne Henry writing a masterpiece and embracing the jumpsuit life. It's got Guy Chesney being way more of a dick than we remembered. And it's got Jessica...in a rocking chair? All this and a musical surprise! You can follow us on Twitter at @svhpodcast and follow the HeadStuff Podcast Network on @HSPodnetwork and...

29: LOVESTRUCK

10/3/2018
More
Will Suzanne succeed in changing Ken? He likes pizza and rock and roll, she likes fancy food and classic music, and according to the rigid rules of Sweet Valley you can't possibly like both, so you know things are going to go wrong. Especially when the entire population are losing their shit over the town's centennial celebrations. Will Ken be inspired by the literary genius of Elizabeth Wakefield? Will Jessica make a mess of the Centennial picnic? And is Suzanne's dad right about SVH's...

28: HOSTAGE!

9/19/2018
More
It's another exclamation mark title! You know what means - drama, excitement and batshit insanity. And Hostage! doesn't disappoint, as Regina is kidnapped, her parents are held captive in the most casual kidnapper's lair ever, and Bruce, Nicholas and the twins concoct a rescue plan that's so stupid and impractical we get totally confused. Also, where's Roger? You can follow us on Twitter at @svhpodcast and follow the Headstuff Podcast Network on @HSPodnetwork and @ThisHeadstuff

27: NOWHERE TO RUN

9/6/2018
More
Move over Nicholas Morrow - Emily's dad Ron has taken your throne as the Worst Man in Sweet Valley. He's married to Evil Karen (not to be confused with our Good Karyn) and they're making poor Emily's life a misery. Meanwhile Liz discovers her true calling as a nosy meddler, Jess gets inexplicably excited by a visit from her annoying grandparents, and Alice is in despair. We know how you feel, Alice. We're reeling from the lack of outfits in this one. You can follow us on Twitter at...

26: MEMORIES

8/23/2018
More
It's episode 26 but book 24 so prepare for us to get increasingly confused at the beginning of each ep from now on. This week it's all about Steven, who suddenly fancies Cara now that she's all miserable. Ugh. But will Betsy let him move on? Spoiler alert: not until the end of the book. Elsewhere Elizabeth is entranced by a mysterious Todd lookalike, Jessica's dreams of fame (yeah, she's remembered she wants to be an actress) lead her to spend a lot of time with Winston, and we discuss the...

25: HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US!

8/10/2018
More
Can you believe it's been a whole year since we took to the podcasting airwaves? It's been a wild ride, full of onion dip, outrage and of course lots of Old Timey Gangster talk. In this special birthday episode, we discuss what we and you, our listeners, have learned from Sweet Valley over the last twelve months - and Karyn introduces Anna to the wonders of the Sweet Valley boardgame.

24: SAY GOODBYE

7/26/2018
More
Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone - Todd is leaving Sweet Valley! Liz is a mess (understandably, in fairness), Nicholas is even creepier than usual (which is saying something) and Jess embarks on one of her best ever schemes, attempting to fix Steven up with an "old woman" who is basically the same age as Anna. Oh, and we're reminded yet again that you can't even cross the road in Sweet Valley without a date. Don't blame us, we don't make the rules. You can follow us on Twitter at...

23: TOO MUCH IN LOVE

7/14/2018
More
Following the last episode's bombshell revelation that we were feeling sorry for Jessica, we have another shock for you all this week: it took 22 books to get here, but we're finally reached a Sweet Valley tale with a genuinely healthy message. AND it features a person of colour! I KNOW! Join us in a rousing chorus of "Gee, Officer Krupke" as we head to the Wakefield's free gaff to discuss American washing machines, DeeDee's many epiphanies and Dana's general awesomeness. You can follow us...

22: RUNAWAY

6/28/2018
More
Something very peculiar happens in this episode. Something that disturbs us both. We actually - can it be true? - FEEL SORRY FOR JESSICA. Poor old Jess (I can't believe I'm typing these words) feels so underappreciated by her awful family that she falls for the extremely dubious charms of sensitive bad boy Nicky. Meanwhile, Ned and Liz are basically competing to see who can be most unethical, and we learn that the Sweet Valley News will employ children as family court reporters. Can anyone...

21: CRASH LANDING!

6/15/2018
More
It's been a while since our last episode because we were off, you know, changing Ireland for the better. But now we're back, back, BACK, and we've got another title with an exclamation mark! That can only mean one thing: DRAMA. And boy, does this episode deliver, as Enid is paralysed in a plane crash and George feels too guilty to dump her as planned. Meanwhile, Robin gains weight (GASP!), Jess becomes obsessed with a sexy French chef (ooh la la), Mr Collins allows Liz to use his child in...

20: SHOWDOWN

5/17/2018
More
If you met a random construction worker who wore deck shoes, would you assume he was secretly a prince? No, you wouldn't, because you don't live in Sweet Valley, where everyone is a deluded fantasist! This week we grab our popcorn and enjoy the extreme drama and crazy scheming as Jessica Wakefield faces off against Lila Fowler in a battle for the heart of the mysterious Jack. Is he really a prince? (No) Will Jessica win his heart? (Also no) And will Liz discover the identity of the...

19: HEAD OVER HEELS

5/3/2018
More
**EPISODE 19: HEAD OVER HEELS** Jump into 1BRUCE1 and fasten your seatbelts because it's going to be a bumpy ride through this bona fide Sweet Valley masterpiece! We've got Bruce and Regina in melodramatic love, a ridiculous carnival run by children, Todd and Liz being even more buffoonish than usual, Jessica failing to notice a huge flaw in her latest scheme, and some very incoherent stuff about Skye Morrow's psychosomatic headaches. All this and Bruce in tiny shorts! You can follow us on...

18: LOVE LETTERS

4/18/2018
More
Why is Caroline pretending that she has a long-distance love? Well, she's basically been driven to it by the SVH wankers, who think anyone without a boyfriend is worthless. Meanwhile Liz and Jess are shaken when they're told that - gasp! - the Wakefields might have to say goodbye to their Spanish tiled kitchen and leave Sweet Valley forever! Join us in one of Sweet Valley's ten million Italian restaurants as we ponder how the Wakefields would fare in a big city where no one worships them,...

17: RAGS TO RICHES

4/5/2018
More
Why do so many of the Sweet Valley shops have such ridiculously generic names (not you, Foxy Mama's, we love you)? That's just one of the many questions we ask in this week's episode, in which Roger goes from rags to (spoiler alert) riches. Can Olivia and her dangerously floaty outfits fit in with Roger's new world? Is there anything Jessica won't do to get a rich boyfriend? And why the hell is Todd so interested in Regina's comings and goings? We attempt to find answers. Also, the lime...

16: PROMISES

3/22/2018
More
Welcome to Sweet Valley, where the town "bad girl" dresses like a nun. Literally - she has both the hair and clothes of Anna's old school principal. Join us as we marvel at the depths of Jess's sociopathy, discuss Winston 'Starch King' Egbert's hypocrisy, and ponder the Sweet Valley drinking scene.

We hate Nicholas Morrow. No, we really, really hate him. Find out why in our new episode, in which Nicholas is a creepy harasser, Liz is pressurised into making a promise she doesn't want to keep, Jess is even more deluded than usual and we visit the fanciest restaurant in the world. Or at least California. Oh, and we discuss an amazing addition to the Sweet Valley universe.

14: KIDNAPPED!

2/22/2018
More
There's an exclamation mark right there in the title so you KNOW this one is going to be exciting. And it is! Jessica falls in love at first sight, Max Dellon of the Droids is falsely accused and Carl the Orderly KIDNAPS ELIZABETH. All that and the easiest English exam ever. Plus! We finally meet Regina Morrow. Don't get too attached to her, folks, because she's only going to be around for 26 more books. So much drama!

13: WHEN LOVE DIES

2/8/2018
More
Get your hankies ready, everyone, this is a tearjerker. Well, sort of. Maybe. Join us as we head to the wrong side of the tracks (the roads are uneven!) with Steven Wakefield to discuss why dumping someone rather than telling them you're dying is never a good idea, and find out what happens when Liz and Jess become candy stripers and Liz joins forces with a TV star to plot a revenge plan that's ill-judged even by Sweet Valley standards.

**TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE** We're back! And there's a lot to talk about as this week Sweet Valley is shaken by the arrival of glamorous Suzanne Devlin. Is she, as the title suggests, too good to be true (spoiler alert: yes)? Meanwhile Jessica heads to New Yoik City to hang out with the '80s equivalent of Lena Dunham and her mates. And if that wasn't enough, there's also Winston going into full stalker mode, a missing lavalier and a scantily dressed Mr Collins. Oh yes. Don’t forget to subscribe...
