Not much happened, but I still really enjoyed it. Georgia is starting to get a bit older and her "boy entrancing" plans are just getting wilder and funnier! I love how quick and funny these books are with their odd slang and Georgia's schemes and I can't wait to read the next one. Thanks to this, I am now fully and truly out of my post-Heir of Fire reading slump!

Robbie, the Sex God, is off to Kiwi-a-go-go land to snog sheep and write songs good for slitting one's wrists to, and Georgia is full of sadnosity, so much so that she even gets to #8 with Mark Big Gob (good grief!). But do not fear, the new Lurve God is on the horizon - half-Italian/half-American Masimo with a fancy purse in his hand. Let the hunt begin!

Summary: more confessions, same story, same characters. Oh, excuse me, there is a new character, Massimo, the new lead singer of the Stiff Dylans. Of course, he's creamy dreamy, of course Georgia falls madly in love, but whenever she is around him, all she can think of is...nothing. Her mind goes out the window. Fortunately, Dave the Laugh is there to coach her in the ways of getting a man. And of course, whenever they are together, they mus

The hilariosity continues as Georgia attempts to wade through her sham of a life and broken heartidness. Just when she begins to fear that she will have to become a lezzie, Georgia meets the Italian Stallion, Masimo, new lead singer of the Stiff Dylans. After three books, Away laughing on a fast camel takes readers back to Angus's roots with laugh out loud wit and charm.

In this installment, Georgia will have make you laugh till you cry with boy entrancer fiascos, mounting up to number 8, and wit

Goodreads description: The tres bon and marvy heroine of Louise Rennison's Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series returns in this fifth fab diary that's sure to get fans cheering -- Italian-American style! This time around, Georgia's lamenting the Sex God's departure to Kiwi A-go-go Land, and she's sure that her mouth will seal shut from lack of snogging. (Robbie's boring letter doesn't help her spirits, either.) But when Robbie's old band, the S

Have you ever wondered how it is to be in high school with all the drama and comedy? Away Laughing On A Fast Camel by Louise Rennison is a book filled with both drama and comedy. This realistic fiction book is great if you love to hear secrets only best friends will know.

In the story Georgia Nicolson is always hanging out in her room. She's always thinking up ideas on how to get the likes to like her. She comes up with the craziest ideas like putting on fake eyelashes and tons of glue on them th

Fabbity Fab! It is fun to spend time with Georgia, as always!! I enjoyed this installment just as much as the previous ones, if not more! This series reads like episodes of a light hearted sitcom. Some of the situations that Georgia gets herself into are full of hilariosity, but still very believable. The writing is just very easy to read, and just FUN! This one ended with a cliff hanger (again) and more of a cliff hanger than usual, in my opinion. I already have book 6 lined up. I don't usually ...more
I'm getting old, aren't I? I can tell this would be the sort of book I probably would have enjoyed if I were ten years younger, but, uh, I think I'm just too old now.

I think it's the style of the book and the language that threw me. For one thing, the book is written in a diary style (March 1st 1:15 PM, April 5th 12:15 AM and so on), but it's also written as though it's occurring at that moment. So is Georgia just whipping out her diary at every moment or what? How incredibly annoying. Furtherm

I enjoy this series. This one seemed to return to what I found fun in the first two books of the series. Georgia and her group of friends crack me up, however, the funniest character is her cat Angus.

This is such an incredibly funny and honest series of books. Even on the re-read I found myself laughing out loud at parts. It is intriguing that a heroine as self-centered as Georgia can be so endearing, but it's hard not to love her even when she is acting an utter prat. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a quick read and an easy laugh.

I checked this out from the library only to take a glance at the first page and realize I had already read it. These Georgia Nicolson books are like malted milk balls. They're delicious, but you forget how many you've eaten because they all taste the same.

Georgia is a selfish brat yet I can't help laughing at her view about the world.

Indonesian translator has done a good job. Thanks to her, I use the words "departemen pipis nipis", "nunga-nunga", "put-put", "centil pentil" daily.

The sex god has flown off to 'kiwi-a-go-go' land, and Georgia is all alone. Well...all alone surrounded by fitties. Now that Robbie's gone, Georgia feels bored and heartbroken. But it doesn't take long before she explores her options with other boys. Dave the Laugh's got a new girlfriend named Rachel. But he continues to make Georgia's lips crave a snog and some lip-nibbling. And now there's Masimo, the new lead singer for The Stiff Dylans and an Italian hottie who makes Georgia go all jelloid.

This fifth installment in the hilarious Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series is yet another brilliant burst of "hilariosity", filled with classic teenage girl troubles, the suffix "-osity" that follows words like "wisdom" and "hilarious", British slang, and boys. Although Georgia thinks poorly of herself and is always putting herself down about her beauty, she still manages to attract numerous boys, and she often ends up in a "snog-fest". This annoys me greatly because there are girls who thin ...more

Oh boy! The pairing of Molto Masimo and the Robin Reliant—Mr. Bean’s car nemesis—is so wacky and crazy. How bleak can these stories get? It’s perfect! I love reading about all of the love troubles in this book. Even Angus isn’t safe and has to fight for “Naomi against her new suitor, Manky… [Naomi’s new] bit of rougher.”

Favorite moment:

“So my eyes stayed shut. They were glued together. I kept trying to open my eyes but couldn’t. In sheer desperadoes I said, ‘Oh I love this one.’ And started wobb

Poor Georgia. Her boyfriend went to New Zealand and then broke up with her long distance, so she's heartbroken and convinced she will Never Love Again. It's awfully difficult to keep up her cold shoulder when Robbie's replacement in the band, Masimo, appears and begins to flirt with her. She can hardly believe her luck, but is this actually what she wants? He's delicious! But! What's a girl with the Cosmic Horn to do?

This one was particularly funny to me--more so than the previous ones, though I

I read this as a pre-teen and loved it - it ended up completely tattered because I'd re-read it so many times! Interestingly I didn't enjoy the other Rennison 'Georgia Nicolson' novels so much, and I can't really put my finger on why. This one had me laughing out loud though, and as a pre-teen it was kind of educational (ha!) It got me thinking about boys and social situations and that sort of thing anyway!

The best thing about this sort of book for a young adult is that they enjoy them, which de

3/5 stars. Nothing too big happened other than the usual shenanigans and meeting a new guy that Georgia is swooning over.
Still enjoying this series. I'm not sure how keen I am on Masimo, though. I'm still team Dave the Laugh. :)

YA needs more characters like Georgia.
3.5 Stars!

Fifth book is down! I feel like doing a party every time I finish one of these books, just because Georgia makes me. I laugh a lot in this one, but not as much as last one, poo. But comparing this to the others, this one is the biggest and it occur so many things that it is understandable that it isn't so a joke. BUT I still laugh.

Ok, lets forget for the moment, that I read this series in the wrong order and have in actual fact, read book number 6 before book number 5, and just review the book despite my pitiful numeracy skills.
