Throwback Thursday: Sunset Island Series

Sunset Island Series by Cherie Bennett!


I can’t even begin to explain how epic this series was for me.  From the first time I picked it up I couldn’t get enough of Emma, Sam, and Carrie.  I thought it so small world glamorous that they had summer au pair jobs on the most fantastic vacation island.  Who could resist the sun, sand, and hopping good times with these girls?  I remember ordering these books five or six at a time from my bookstore.  You know, when books were like 2.50 or 3.25 a piece!  I don’t think I got to finish the whole series though.  I still have these books tucked away somewhere, and when I find them, I’ll be re-reading them and finishing them finally.  Because of this series I devoured any and everything I could get my hands on that Cherie Bennett released.  She really had so many phenomenal YA series.  The Sunset Island series still has my heart.

Did any of you ever read this series or anything by Bennett?  What series from your YA years to you remember and love?

**NOTE: Back in the Day will now be Throwback Thursday.  Just because the name is shorter and sounds better.  I just haven’t had a chance to make a new graphic yet.  Still reminiscing about childhood treasures, still every other Thursday, just a different name!

  1. I am sitting here wondering what the heck was I reading during those young years. I don’t think I was a novel reader then, I think i was a magazine junkie. i had a friend that read the heck out of Harlequin Romances. everyone in a while she would persuade me to read one.

    Now you’re making me wish I had read more… back in the day. Well, I did read a lot of R.L. Stine but I can’t say I really remember what exactly. LOL

    Super fun cover, that one.

    I have never heard of this book or the series before. I remember those good ole days of $2.50 books. I am amazed these books don’t jog my memory, but I don’t remember the author either. Thanks for expanding my book awareness. 🙂

      I wish new books were still that cheap. I could rack up. I’m surprised more people don’t know this series. But I bet you’ve seen something by this author. I think she also wrote Life in the Fat Lane.

  4. I never read this series. In fact, you are introducing it to me for the very first time. I feel like I mention the same books from my childhood over and over, but it isn’t until someone reminds me of others that I remember.
