I started off reading the BSC Little Sister books when those first came out, switched over to BSC shortly after.  My sister was still getting the Little Sister ones, so I kept up with both for quite a while, although I would have to wait until she was done.  I remember when I first swapped over being really confused trying to make sense of the relationships from another perspective.  Ie. Karen had a step mom in the house where Kristy lived, whereas it was Kristy’s step dad there.  I think it was my first introduction to step parents, that were’t the evil stepmom fairlytale stuff.

I was into the Sweet Valley stuff too.  Started with Sweet Valley Kids I think it was.  I remember really loving the University series for a while.  Short lived I think, but I devoured lots of the books in short time frame.

I remember the Sweet Valley tv show, and the BSC show.  Sweet Valley I watched regularly although I don’t think it lasted long.  BSC was available too late – I was already watching for the ‘nostalgia’ aspect just because I used to love the books.

I like RL Stine, but it was Fear Street and his non-series books.  I read a few Goosebumps books, but didn’t enjoy them, they felt too juvenille to me by the time they were published.  I do remember people in my grade being really insterested and I was like why? Fear Street was way scarier.
