About ’90s Flashback

I get creative when I’m unemployed, which is when I came up with the idea to blog about Sweet Valley High and Baby-Sitters Club books.  Sometime between May and November of 2009, when I was out of work, I decided to hunt down all of the BSC books, which I’d read, and all of the SVH books, of which I’d only read a few. And what good would all that reading do if I didn’t share it with other people who enjoy ’80s/’90s YA literature? (I was surprised to learn how many of us there are.) Later I expanded to ’90s TV shows, and am currently recapping Buffy and ER.

Here are all the series I’ve recapped or am currently recapping:

The Baby-Sitters Club (books and Netflix series)
Beverly Hills, 90210
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Dawson’s Creek
Miscellaneous movies
My So-Called Life
Party of Five
Sweet Valley High
Sweet Valley Twins
Sweet Valley University
The X-Files

    This website is the best! The Dawson’s Creek recaps have made my life 100000x better

  2. I love your SVU recaps too. There are more right? I only read up to the cruise story arc, when they want to the Caribbean! 🙂

    Do you remember the book series; The Mystery Club?

      It doesn’t sound familiar. I’ll have to look it up.

    Will you do any of the ancillary BSC books, like the California Diaries or the Forever Friends?

    • Jenn said,

      Possibly? I don’t know. I haven’t thought that far ahead. 🙂

    Hi Jenn – You are absolutely doing a wonderful service on this site. You’re making my “ER” adventure a lot more enjoyable. How can I donate?

      I haven’t created any donation options yet, so just keep reading!

    I enjoyed reading through your sweet valley recap. The tv show, all 4 seasons,is completely free on youtube. Have you ever thought about recapping it (or watching it if you didn’t) for here?
