Another couple of hours with Georgia and, as expected, no life lessons but tons of hilariosity. Can't say much happens in this installment. The highlights are: Georgia's ever-growing nunga-nungas (a.k.a. basoomas a.k.a. breasts) which once again attract a wrong kind of attention, this time from a Scottish lad; a serious case of red-bottomosity (a.k.a. general horn a.k.a. sluttiness); and Angus's trouser snake removal operation.

Some favorite bits:

I got a real kick out of these funny, honest, unsentimental YA books. I would have loved (and I mean LOVED) them in high school. They're written as the diary of a British girl named Georgia, and she covers all the drama, hilarity, embarassment, etc., of the high school years, only with a delightful Englishness. Really fun, reeeeeeally amusing. I don't imagine they'd meet with much approval from the parents of American teenagers, though- Georgia is pretty frank (even crude- she's a teenager after...more

Welcome, Earth creatures (a.k.a. not-girlfriends of a Sex God popstar)!!! While our resident well of wisdomosity can't be bothered spending her precious time on something as naff as tests, this is your time to prove how (not) worthy you are of an Ace Gang honorary membership.

Three books in and I'm done with the series. Already they're getting really tiresome. Georgia is 14 but acts like she's both 20 and 5 at the same time. Whinging on about her parents (who have absolutely NO consistency to their weak characterizations) being weirdos and her egg-headed uncle one minute, and then snogging the life out of guys who are quite a bit older than her, wearing short skirts, and going to clubs the next.
I realized that so far there has been no real plot to the series: Georgia...more

Aw, Dave the Laugh is the cutest.

The humor in these books is unparalleled. Do not read in public unless you want to be laughing like a loon for all to see. Georgia is so endearingly oblivious to her self-centered, superficial, player ways. From her lines about her Vati to her tales of Angus the Scottish half-Labrador cat to her boy-crazy musings, I just can't put these books down.

Dave the Laugh is my favorite YA mate of all time, and one of my favorite Dave the Laugh scenes is in this book. (Oh, that clown nose!)

I love these books. Yes, the main character is shallow and vain and quite self-absorbed, but most teenage girls are to a certain extent, right? I love that despite these things, Georgia remains a lovable character, and we get to see the chinks in her armour, as it were. She really does love her parents, even though most of the time they annoy her half to death and do things she finds appalling. You didn't feel like that as a teenager?! I did! She cares about her friends. She makes mistakes that...more

I love Georgia Nicolson's voice so much. This series is so entertaining and light hearted. Definitely a good read for this busy month as it is a quick and easy read!

Georgia Nicolson is back once again, more hormone driven than ever. We are served a grand helping of Sexgoderosity with snogfests on the side!

Georgia finds herself in a state of confusiosity and red-bottomosity - torn between Robbie the Sex God and Dave the Laugh! Who would've thought the Red Herring from Operation Elastic Band would backfire! Ear snogging or nip libbling...Hmm tough choice!

This instalment is just as hilarious as the previous books, if not, more! I found myself laughing out lou...more

still hilarious, but Georgia is starting to get on my nerves.

While caring for a very sick relative (and dealing with all the stress that goes along with such a task), I wanted something fun and silly and light-hearted to read to leaven the seriousness of my ongoing work. I recalled seeing Louise Rennison's books back when I worked in a book store, and thought I'd track down the first in her series for my ereader. Well, that was not possible, since the publisher has decided to make only the third book (this one) and subsequent books available electronicall...more

This third installment to the Georgia Nicolson confessions is good and quite amusing, though I must say I didn’t like it as much as the first two installments. However, these books are certainly addictive. The scary thing is that I’m unconsciously adopting some of Georgia’s phrases. I caught myself thinking one day as I was sitting by the air conditioner, “It’s nippy noodles here!”…then found myself wondering, “Where did that come from?” Oh, so bleak! ;) I completely forgot that it came from thi...more

Oh my goodness, Georgia is hilarious! Her journal starts right back where she left us banned from school and a Sex God's girlfriend. I think the best part of this is her ridiculous thoughts and sentences. And the fact that she is SO selfish that I don't think her friend Jas (who she talks to a lot) ever gets a full sentence in!

In the ever mind changing pace of a teenager, while Georgia is so happy to be SG's girlfriend (swoon, and let us think about the snogging) she also may possibly like Dave...more

I did not like this book because it is about a teenage girls diary that does not have a hook to keep me interested in reading more. After reading 15 pages, I could not get interested in the book. It seems to be random writing without a story to it. There are 10 pages of definitions to made-up words used by the main character, Georgia who is a teenage in England writing in her diary. Why would I want to look up made-up words to understand what is going on in the diary? It is a banned book because...more

Georgia's dating Robbie, her family takes her on a madcap adventure to Scotland, her cat wants to bang another cat, her ex-boyfriend is fun to kiss, and Georgia doesn't know where to turn next. Luckily, she is happy to share all her angst, hilarity, and ranting with us in her journal in this third volume of the Georgia Nicholson series.

I really liked Georgia and her friends' fixation on the "scale" of romantic interaction, so to speak, and the way she actually seems to be having a lot of the sam...more

The book “Knocked Out By My Nunga-Nungas” by Louise Rennison is a sequel to “On The Bright Side, I’m Now The Girlfriend of a Sex God” and “Angus, Thongs, and Perfect Snogging.” “Knocked Out By My Nunga-Nungas” is the third book of the series. In the beginning of this story Georgia is suspended from school, but her dad can't find out so she has to pretend to be sick. Georgia and her family then go to Scotland. In Scotland a boy named Jock McThick touches her “basooma.” She then calls her best fr...more

I have just finished reading Knocked out by my Nunga Nungas by Louise Rennison. This is third book of the Georgia Nicolson series. It’s a book written for teens and young adults – although my teacher has read this book and he has grey hair! Be warned – the book has some rude words in it so don’t recommend this for anyone too young!

The book is about the main character called Georgia Nicholson and her friends.It is written in the first person and although I haven’t read the first two books, the fe...more

Is it just me or is Gee getting ruder? She’s always been anti-authority and a bit of an idiot. But in a lovable way. Now…not so much. It’s tough to want nice things, like Dave the Laugh, for such an insolent little twit. And she’s (secretly) running around with Robbie, who is much older than her. Come to think on it, the only guys who are remotely interested in her are years her senior. Hm.

Anyway. Liked the jaunt to Scotland. Gingers! The series is still a laugh if not taken seriously. At all.
Nicola
Fun and cute! Once again Georgia Nicolson narrates her ordinary life in a highly amusing tone. This installment sees Georgia take a family trip to Scotland ("och-aye land"), juggle two boys and clumsily stumble through daily life. Georgia's voice is unique and entertaining. These books, while short and light, pack a lot into the small amount of pages and never fail to make me laugh out loud more than once which to me is the sign of a very successful book.
Kathleen Dixon
I should get the first two of this series. Not that they're necessary in order to understand - I mean, teenage girls are teenage girls - but they'll be fun to read (or listen to, as the case may be). Georgia is funny, single-minded (just think about what 15-year-olds can't stop thinking about), and self-absorbed. On top of that I found the narrator's voice just exactly right (and so it should be as it's the author herself reading it)!
Morgan
Pleasant fluff for a bad day. Georgia Nicolson is a good distraction. Another one to send off to my early teen cousin.
Elad
I don't take these books seriously. I read this after I finished The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson. It was a good choice because I was having withdrawls from the world, so I needed a quick and easy book to get back in the mood of reading. My favorite parts of this book are definitely the parts Robbie is in. Definitely. He is my favorite character, and although he seems a little too perfect, I love him. Everything about this book is so exaggerated, which is why it's so much fun to read. You d...more

I read the first 8 books of the Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series about 3 years ago and I liked them way better before. Georgia is a teenager girl who is navigating her oh so difficult life with two parents that love each other and love her, friends that are... sometimes... there for her (view spoiler) and plenty of boys who would love to date her. But no, s...more

Georgia Nicolson has now had a lot of snogging experience under her belt, making it more than halfway up the snogging scale. She's got the sex god of her dreams as a boyfriend. Her parents are all loved up. Life couldn't be more fabbity fab.

Except it isn't. For starters, Georgia's dad has dragged her and the family off to Scotland on holiday. How can she survive without seeing (or snogging) the Sex God Robbie? Fortunately the distance is only short-lived, and she's back with her rock-star boyfri...more

I don't even know how to start this review as I'm so flustered. I liked the first book in the series just fine and the second one was just okay. However, this book left me cold and, to be honest, quite angry. I see there was "controversy" over the phrase "nunga-nungas", but that seems like a trivial complaint compared to some of the other things in this book.

I was extremely saddened to see Georgia continue to call her friends "lezzies" as a derogatory term when she was annoyed with them or want...more

My Thoughts:
If I truly want a pick me up I drop into Georgia's world. Her every day observations and hilarious antics make me laugh out loud. There is no doubt that this is a girl I would hang with!
Poor Georgia! Being a teenager is tough enough with all the worry of lurking lurkers, ear snogging, nunga nunga protectors!
Her parents are still stark raving mad lunatics bent on making her life miserable.
They are dragging off to Scotland(Och Aye Land) on a family excursion. Who wants to visit a penci...more

This is my second time straight through the Georgia Nicholson series and I'm loving it. Georgia is so dreadfully honest and so un-pc, that I spend every minute of the series laughing like "a loon on loon pills". Speaking of, Rennison has done a brilliant job of creating Georgia's voice. It is perfection. Her terminology and turns of phrase crack me up and are quite addictive. Here's an example from the glossary from the website, parts of which are also included at the end of each book:
