    As seen on The Readventurer The only thing I am going to say here is that Dave the Laugh is the best boyfriend ever. I have no idea why, for so long, I thought the Sex God Robbie was a good choice for Georgia. Dave is a total dream boat... ...and yes, I know I am twice his age.

This snippet is for my present and future entertainment: 8:35 pm You can make a sort of nose sling out of pair of knickers [panties:]! Like a sort of antigravity device. You put a leg hole over each ear and the middley bit supports your nose. It's quite comfy. I'm not saying that it looks very glamorous. I'm just saying it's comfy. 8:40 pm It's not something I would wear outside of the privacy of my own bedroom. 8:45 pm It's a good view from my windowsill. I can see Mr. Next Door with his stupid poodles. He's all happy now that Angus has gone off poodle baiting in favor of the Burmese sex kitten. 8:46 pm Oh hello, here comes Mark, my ex, the breast fondler. At this rate he will be the one and only fondler. I will die unfondled. He must be coming home from footie practice. I don't know how I could ever have thought about snogging him; he wears extremely tragic trousers. He is looking up at my window. He has seen me. He's stopped walking and is looking up at my window. Staring at me. Well, you know what they say - once a boy magnet always a boy magnet. I'm just going to stare back in a really cool way. All right, Mr. Big Gob, Mr. Dumper. I might be the dumpee but you still can't take your eyes away from me though, can you??? I still fascinate him. He's just looking up at me. Just staring and staring. Mesmerized by me. 8:50 pm Oh my god! I am still wearing my nose hammock made out of knickers. 8:56 pm Mark will tell all his mates.

    I think I liked the second book even more than the first one in the series, because Dave the Laugh is my favorite character. I love Georgia's confusion as to whether it's more important to have a boyfriend who makes you go jelloid or one who makes you laugh. Really enjoying this re-read of the series. Bring on the next one!

    Picture, if you will, Bridget Jones as a 14 yr. old girl. She has a crush on the cute musician next door, has a few close girlfriends who help her with her schemes and a quirky family which includes a three year old sister who sometimes terrorizes her. Very cute series written in diary form. Relaxing, entertaining and makes me thrilled to not only have me out of my teen years, but my kids, too. 😊

    This book was every bit as fun as I expected it to be. This series is just really cute, funny and light-hearted. Georgia is simply hilarious and I never tire of her dramatic reactions. Her witty diary entries are infectious and I find them impossible to look away from. This installment did drag at parts but it was mostly as entertaining and amusing as the first. I'm certainly looking forward to see what else is in store for Georgia.

I admire honesty.” So, once again Georgia Nicolson made laugh a lot with her occurences. I swear that I would ditch this book if it wasn't for all the stupid and funny things she said, because the story perse is boring. “She got up and started making her hair have more bouncability with the air brush thing again. I waited until she had got it just right (in her opinion); then I hit her over the head with a pillow. She started to say, "Look, this is not funn-" but before she could finish I hit her over the head again with the pillow. And every time she tried to talk I did it again. She got all red-faced, which in Jas's case is very red indeed. It made me feel much better. Violence may be the answer to the world's problems. I may write to the Dalai Lama and suggest he tries my new approach.” She is a BULLY! Everything is against Jas, and poor her that I don't know how they still friends. Georgia gives the most horrible tips and advices. Jas has like broke up twice with her boyfriends thanks to Georgia. Thank God that Jas is not that dumb and she comes back to him, because they are a really sweet couple. Another sweet couple is Sven and Rosie. Sven made laugh every time he apperead, because no one ever understands what he is saying. “Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on where you were sitting) Libby let off the smelliest, loudest fart known to humanity. It came out of her bum-oley with such force that she lifted off my knee - like a hovercraft. Even she looked surprised by what had come out of her.” I'm trying to understand if Georgia's sister, Liberty aka Libbs, has a problem because she does the most random and weird things. I don't remember my sister or me doing those things. Plus her mother is always ignoring her like she doesn't care, i hate it. “Boys are like elastic bands... Boys are different from girls. Girls like to be cozy all the time but boys don't. First of all, they like to get all close to you like a coiled-up rubber band, but after a while, they get fed up with being too coiled and need to stretch away to their full stretchiness. Then, after a bit of on-their-own strategy, they ping back to be close to you.” I'm trying to understand Georgia's way, I do, but I can't. Is she is so in love with Robbie, why is she so stupid in front of him. I guess that she turns more than jelly thanks to love? Sacré Bleu! Why I'm still reading this? I don't know. Will I keep reading it? Sí.

I can’t believe Jas. She is dead to me. Like in the Bible, when somebody goes off and becomes a prostitute or something. She is now the girl who has no name. “It’s me, Jas.” “Oh...What do YOU want?” “I’ve just called to see how you are.” I said, “Dead actually, I died a few hours ago. Goodbye.” Also thanks to Holly for recommending this book series ☀️

    Oh, what’s the matter with that Georgia! How could she do that to the poor kid? Dave the Laugh’s the perfect guy… “Dave phoned. He said, ‘I just called to say I really liked you. Night night.’” I think that’s really cute. How could she not fall in love? Oh, I don’t know… but there’s definitely something off with that “Sex God” of hers. When I think about the two of them, that jailbait infatuation, it congers up an image of Gidget and the Kahuna. ;) But it’ll probably end the same way with Gidget Oh, what’s the matter with that Georgia!

But it’ll be fun to see how it’ll all play out. But like in Angus, there are quite a few priceless gem moments: “I hope I am not being driven to the brink of madness by grief. They say that some people never get over things, like whatshername, Kathy Thing. The one who wandered over the moors at night yelling, ‘Heathcliffe, Heathcliffe, it’s me a-Kathy come home again.’” “I’ve spent so much time in bed I’ll probably start growing a long white beard soon, like Rip van Thing.” “I could be like a sad old sadsack or I could gird my loins and be like in that song. The one where you have to search for the hero within yourself. Jas was waiting for me at the bus stop. She said, ‘Why are you walking in that stiff way?’ ‘I’m girding my loins.’ ‘Well, it looks painful, like you’ve got a stick up your bottom.’”

    What I like most about the Georgia Nicolson series is that it doesn’t try to be posh. It strives for absurdosity and succeeds. This installment picked up where Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging left off, with Georgia losing the SG and protesting a move to Kiwi-a-gogo Land (a.k.a. New Zealand). From there, it only gets crazier: cat mating, Elastic Band theory, Dr. George Clooney, the German language, a wheelbarrow, etc. Georgia is like the friend you want to dope slap, but just shake your h What I like most about the Georgia Nicolson series is that it doesn’t try to be posh.

She’s going to do mad things no matter what. That’s why glimpses of her nicer side are so surprising. Deep down beneath the stupidity and shallowness and mascara is a good person. Deep, deep down. Anyway, is it wrong that I dislike the SG and think Georgia should beg Dave the Laugh (a.k.a. best boyfriend EVER) to take her back? Nein? Thought so.

    Five Stars for Nostalgia. Would also highly recommend the audiobook for this series as it's narrated by the author and is hilarious! Something I discovered while rereading this - Robbie's a bit of a Dick Something that's still true after rereading this - Dave's a sweetheart <3

    This was given to me by a friend. I actually read the first book by this author, which I thought was Bridget Jones but with teenage angst. The best character was Angus the wild cat.

The best thing about this was the title, IMO. Amazon Editorial Review: Fourteen-year-old Georgia Nicolson is back in British author Louise Rennison's irreverent, laugh-out-loud sequel to the Michael L. Printz Honor Book Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging. Written in diary form, these truly hilarious books chronicle the often minute-by-minute, very dramatic, and significant flip-flops of a teenager's psyche. 7:18 p.m. My eyes are all swollen up like mice eyes from crying. Even my nose is swollen. It's not small at the best of times, but now it looks like I've got three cheeks. Marvelous. Thank you, God. 9:00 p.m. I'll never get over this. 9:10 p.m. Time goes very slowly when you're suicidal. What tragedy has her so distraught? Her parents have told her she's moving to New Zealand just when she's managed to snog (kiss--look it up in the glossary) the SG (Sex God, a.k.a Robbie). This is of course not the only source of drama in Georgia's eventful life. Her half Scottish wildcat, Angus, who is the size of a small Labrador, herds the poodles next door and terrorizes the neighborhood. Her little sister, Libby, who is slightly mad, stores her "pooey knickers" and her scuba-diving Barbie doll in Georgia's bed. Her mother (from whom she inherited her orangutan eyebrow gene and possibly her "gigantic basoomas") is clearly inhabiting Earth solely to make her life miserable, and even her best friend Jas is "half girl, half turnip." Despite the fact that she's spared from going to "Kiwi-a-gogo land," things don't get much better for Georgia. She's suspended for a childish prank right before her dad returns from New Zealand, she falls in love with the SG who dumps her for being too young, and Dave, the "red-herring" boyfriend she's using to make the SG jealous calls her a "heartless whatsit." And, she continues, "the spot on my bum is probably a boil. I wonder what Buddha would do now?" Rennison's comedic timing is brilliant. Adolescent angst ("I hope I am not driven to the brink of madness by grief") vanishes less than an hour later ("Angus can fetch sticks!!!") and sometimes even sooner. (Warning: Do not read this book while riding a train or bus unless you don't care what people think of intermittent explosive laughter. Seriously.) (Ages 12 and older) --Karin Snelson

    I was in the library looking for a book to read, and I came across this one that I had actually failed at finding before. Georgia Nicolson comes back as funny as ever, she is now the girlfriend of Robbie (who she calls Sex God) and she thinks of nothing but snogging him. When he dumps her for being "too young" she tries to finds a way to get him back. There were many quotes that I love in the book, but one of my favourites was "What is there to laugh at?

I am on the rack of love. Life is a sham and a facsimile and a farce." The quote shows Georgia's frustration with her life at the moment, but also shows a bit of her comical side. I loved how the author wrote in first-person, she did a great job writing down the thoughts of a 14 year old. It was fun reading the bits she wrote in French and in German also. I recommend this book to girls in need of a laugh, and who are experiencing boy problems. This book doesn't offer a good solution to those problems, but it sure lets you laugh non-stop about them.

Even if Georgia's behaviour it's kinda annoying sometimes. Also Libby, Georgia's baby sister, I find incredibly annoying. She is so disgusting and irritating hahaha I don't even know how to put it in words. Either way, I do enjoy reading this series and as they are super quick reads, I'm sure I'll be finishing this series off before I know it!

The prose annoyed me too with all these made up words and repetitions. The only strength I found was the consistency of Georgia's character, which I didn't even like reading anymore.

    This book has been one of my favorites! I ususally am not a big fan of reading, but this book had totally been amazing. It's about a girl named Georgia who is from Britain, so she uses a lot of unfamiliar words that are fun to read. She was the girlfriend of a boy named Robbie a.k.a "the sex god." He found out something that made him break the relationship, and as you can imagine she got very upset. Georgia really likes him so she does some pretty funny stuff to get his attention.

    When I was a teenager, I was nowhere near as boy crazy as Georgia but I was every bit as dramatic... Georgia is so ridiculous. Like, I kinda think it's hilarious when something unbelievably embarrassing happens to her because she is so awful to other people, haha.

You know, putting it under your nunga nunga and if it stays there, you need to wear a bra? Ah, to be at that stage when wearing a bra seems like the worst thing in the world… 7. (And she’s 14! Ha! I and most of my friends went through that when we were 10/11!) 8. She’s got a cat the size-of-a-small-Labrador, the half-Scottish-wildcat Angus, who courts the Burmese pedigree “minx” across the street by strutting his stuff. 9. She never quite knows what she’s on about, and says so on multiple occasions. 10. And there’s nowhere else you can get a collection of quotes quite like these: #1: Ellen told me that her brother and his friends go out on “cat patrol”. I said, do they really like cats, then?” She said, “No, him and his mates are the cat patrol and they go out looking for birds…you know, chicks…girls.” Good Lord. #2: “We’ve just rang to say we’ve made up this great new dance; it’s called ‘The phone box.’” She played a radio down the phone and in the background I could hear a lot of grunting and shuffling and Sven going, “Oh jah oh jah, hit it, lads!” or something in Swedish or whatever it is he speaks. Gibberish,. Normally. Not English, anyway. Then there was a bit of what sounded like tap-dancing. Rosie came back on the phone all breathless. “Brilliant, eh? See you in the next world…don’t be late!!” And she slammed the phone down. #3: “Miss Simpson, it is a well-known fact that if friends sit together they are encouraged to do more work.” But she just shook in such a jelloid way I thought her chins would drop off. She said, “The last time you two sat together, you set locusts free in the biology lab.” Oh honestly; not only has she got legs like an elephant, she’s got a memory like one.

    It's OK, I'm Wearing Really Big Knickers was another barrel of laughs, but it just wasn't as good as the first book which was Marvy and double cool with knobs. The story continues from where we left off in the first book. Mutti (Mum) delivers the news that they are going to New Zealand to see Vati (Dad). And what perfect timing for Georgia - after finally becoming the girlfriend of a Sex God!

The story continues from where we left off in the first book. Mutti (Mum) delivers the news that they are going to New Zealand to see Vati (Dad). And what perfect timing for Georgia - after finally becoming the girlfriend of a Sex God! (view spoiler)[But not to worry, soon we find out that Vati had an accident with a rogue bore and is coming home! Perfectamondo! One problem solved. But another problems comes Georgia's way in the form of SG pulling out the 'I just realised again that you're too young for me' card and telling her that his mate Dave is a laugh. Georgia's mum's book Men are from Mars explains that boys are like elastic bands. Give boys space and they will stretch far away but eventually they will spring back. Hence, Georgia begins Operation Elastic Band, to get SG back with Dave the Laugh as the red herring. We continue to follow Georgia's amusing life at school, notably wearing berets like lunchpacks, getting sat on by the Bummer Twins, and playing hockey in three pairs of knickers. Meanwhile at home, Mum finds any excuse to go see Doctor George Clooney-lookalike, Angus finds a Burmese sex kitten from across the road and Libby continues developing her speech and making a poo mess everywhere. SG rarely makes an appearance, if only to shatter Georgia's heart, with Wet Lindsay entering his car. What's more, he doesn't even contact Georgia until the end (when she is suspended from school)! SG takes her to the park, tells her he can't forget her and commences a snogfest. Hurrah, they are to become official after her 15th birthday! And what? Georgia's family is going to Scotland for a week now? This book didn't leave us with such an ohmygod ending as the first. I really wish there was more of Robbie and Georgia. I feel as though Robbie hasn't gotten the chance to know Georgia properly. Obviously we know Georgia is a hilarious girl with a great personality but with Robbie she goes jelloid and can't even talk properly! I really hope the next books will develop their relationship better! (hide spoiler)]

    I recognize that this series is completley ridiculous; that doesn't mean I don't really like it. I got this from the library yesterday. I also finished it yesterday. They're really fast reads. A few things: - Whenever I read these books I feel the urge to talk like Georgia, good thing I don't. I"m sure I'd get REALLY strange looks. - Reading this I realized Georgia is a kind of a shitty friend. She gets mad at Jas over the stupidest stuff, especially whenever she wants to talk about herself or T I recognize that this series is completley ridiculous; that doesn't mean I don't really like it.

I"m sure I'd get REALLY strange looks. - Reading this I realized Georgia is a kind of a shitty friend. She gets mad at Jas over the stupidest stuff, especially whenever she wants to talk about herself or Tom. - I like Dave the Laugh a whole lot more than the Sex God. She's herself around him. When she's around Robbie she just acts weird, doesn't say much, and just makes out with him. They never talk about anything. All he does is kiss her. Sure, he's "The Sex God", but he doesn't have much of a personality, at least when he's around Georgia. I'm almost done with the third one now. I only got the second, third, and fourth one, so I'll probably go to the library again soon even though I have a bunch of my own books to read.
