Rereading this book series is such an experience for me because one the one hand, it still holds up completely, is hilarious and charming, and takes me right back to the days when I first read it.

On the other hand though, I find it extremely alarming how rude Georgia is to everyone around her, especially the following: Nauseating P.

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

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

Aw, Dave the Laugh is the cutest.
Oh no no no Georgia, don't you dare.

This isn't as funny or as much fun as the previous two books. Maybe I've overdosed on Georgia? Maybe three in one day was too much (or two much, hahaha). Sven was still funny and the girls were still ridiculous but the humour just wasn't as there, you know? (view spoiler)
Libbie Hawker (L.M. Ironside)
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

4 Stupid & Hilarious Stars

And I knocked down the third book of this series. I'm going a little fast with these books, but its because no matter how kind of stupid they, I cannot put them down. Always laughing at her crazyness and I have even absorb some slang of her. Sacré bloody bleu!

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

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
There are books that are meant to inspire you and to open your mind to new ideas. The characters always learn some incredibly important life lesson and become a better person by the end of the story. This is not one of those books.

Georgia is incredibly shallow and vain and she stays that way for the entire book (and series for that matter). And that is fine by me. She is 15 and, while not a great role model, a pretty accurate representation of a 15 year old girl. Well at least 15 year olds that

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

The first book was refreshing and funny, soured only by continous lesbian bashing. The second book was decidedly less so, and by this third installment, I am personally quite sick of listening to materialistic, shallow and self-centered Brit Georgia Nicholson whine about her parents, friends, and school. Even the subplot - Angus' courting of the neighbors' cat is so out of control Georgia's dad threatens to have him spayed - is not funny.

Oh, so this is why the girls at the back of the class started referring to breasts as 'nunga-nungas', I never quite understood that. Honestly, nothing much happens in this book but I've come to enjoy Confessions of Georgia Nicolson, not really for the plot, but...well...for the lols!

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

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

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.
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.

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)!

I keep forgetting that it's a bad idea to read these on the bus, because I always end up laughing out loud. Georgia's diary entries are hilarious, but she's not really that nice a person, so I feel pretty conflicted about some of the remarks she makes. But I'm mostly here for Angus (the cat) anyway, and he's as charming as ever in this one.
