****John Benton series up – go to guide to – part d-k**** C author page up on Cliquey 3!
Finding books I don’t have is always a treat , I practically pounce on them like a miner discovering gold! It’s an even bigger treat when there’s a nice surprise on the cover! Is it just me or is that Courtney Cox on the cover of Sweet Dreams?
It is! – looking like she did back when she was pulled on stage for a dance with Bruce Springsteen – staged of course but who cares! Want more of her –
Could this be Reece Witherspoon? –
and though I know the dates are really off one of the cashiers at Value Village pointed out that the girl on Kiss Me Creep , Sweet Dreams looked exactly like Thora Birch.
The guy on Kiss Me Creep actually looks a lot like John Philbin from the New Kids 1985 – the movie with Lori Loughlin. The other Sweet Dreams cover looks like someone I can’t put my finger on an actress from the 80’s wait – Meredith Salenger – that’s it! From Journey of Natty Gann and Dream a Little Dream
Could this be Ally Sheedy on the Cover of Windswept?
, and get a load of the guy on First Love From Silhouette he’s got kindof a Flock of Seagulls thing going with his hair.
** Just found a new one! First Love From Silhouette #54 – Picture Perfect by Carrie Enfield. That’s Lori Loughlin looking ravashing as always!
She was without a doubt, one of ( if not ) the best looking brunette of the 80’s. She had the most magnificient sparkly eyes and the sun-shinniest smile. I love how she is bathed in a warm buttered toast glow on this cover. It’s kind of interesting that I should find Lori Loughlin after just maybe perhaps recognizing her co-star of the New Kids on Kiss Me Creep. If you haven’t seen The New Kids check it out – it’s not much of a horror , more of a psychotic teenager played with lizardy villainry by a bleached blonde James Spader , ( he was the ultimate 80’s slimeball! ) harassing two new kids that have moved into his quiet Florida town. Orphaned they have come to live with their aunt and uncle at their rundown Santa’s workshop carnival. Lori Loughlin makes the movie better than it is with her spunky , level headed charm – she turns Spader down flat which sparks the out and out war he wags against them, and her brother hunky newcomer Shannon Presby isn’t bad either. Doesn’t Lori Loughlin have the best hair? It hasn’t changed much , she knew what looked good on her and stuck with it , but I love that loop of bangs that arches over her forehead like a feathered visor brim. Here’s more of Lori !
Want More?! Here’s Yasmine Bleeth on Windswept
And reader Nancy clued me into these four – Susan Walters from Loving ( an 80’s soap ) on First Love !
O.J. Simpson’s ex the very gorgeous – Paula Barbieri!
Here’s Pamela Gidley I think – she was the robot in Cherry 2000 , and the girlfriend of Joh Brolin in Rad.
This is a rare back of a Sweet Dreams that included a second model – with the front hinting that
it featured Michael Jackson ( the story was about working on a Michael Jackson music video )
Here’s one I was supposed to put up ages ago – Lisanne Falk – of Heathers fame – on
Models themselves garned a star-like status representing characters we loved – so it was
interesting to see them appear on other covers as someone else! Take The Makeover club –
vs Seniors –
vs Swept Away!
Now check out the Asian girl beside her – you’ve seen her before if you’ve read – Couples
The girl really gets around – Mary Anne on Face book clued me in on this one – and yikes and it’s one of my favorite covers! I guess I was so into the character being Candy I forget she was also Lisa in Couples and Alex in Seniors. Hmmm, I wonder who she really is? ( P.s. – I totally love this cover forget that it’s focus is on veggies and both models eyes can’t be seen – don’t you just love the secondary colors they’re wearing? – Orange and green! sigh. )
Just to show you celebrities aren’t snobs ( or maybe they just don’t have the rights to their pictures ) check out this cover of Helene ( not a Series book but I thought it was cool ) that’s Brooke Shields on the cover –
looking about thirteen which is strange because the book is not about a Lolita relationship well not that much of one! The girl in the story is seventeen. If you know of anymore celebrities on covers let me know , maybe I missed a few.
Hope you like the pics sorry the Caprice cover is in such rough shape! ****This post is updated and was previously on my Blogspot
