Stop in the Name of Pants! (Confessions of Georgia Nicolson #9)
Time to gird the loins and pucker up.
Blimey O'Reilly's trousers! Three maybe-boyfriends is a lot for any girl to handleâ”red-bottomed or not. What with Robbie the Sex God back from Kiwi-a-gogo land wanting to "get coffee" and whatsit, Masimo the Luuurve God saying things like "Ciao, Georgia, see you later" (the good see-you-later or the bad see-you-later??), and her ma...more
After displaying yet another bought of red bottomosity with none other than Dave the Laugh, Gee is becoming a bit confused about her matey type mate. She is now the girl ...more
I'm not sure that this kind of humor appeals to everyone. And I'm not sure how I'd feel about it if I'd never read any of the others in the series (Yes, yes: I read the first four or five of these even bef ...more
It's not that I don't like Masimo, he just isn't right for Georgia. They can't really have a conversation because of the language barrier. That also means he usually doesn't get any of her jokes and humor is something Georgia really values. Honestly I like him more, but I think Dave the Laugh is best for her. This one made me realize I really like Rosie; other than Georgia, she's probably my fav ...more
There was so little development in this book. Nothing of consequence happened. The jokes were tired and annoying. I just want something dramatic to happen instead of reading about the same old nonsense. 9 books is pushing it for me.
I love the GN series but really...it's time to shake these books up before all the charm from the first few wears completely off.
This is another spot-on installment about Georgia Nicholson. I laughed a lot in this book, and I might have even cried a little. But it was still incredibly over the top, and reminds me of being a teenager. Good times!
It was a surprising read because there was more interaction with her friends not just Jas and Rosie (though Rosie is the best).
Masimo still grinds my gears because he's so eh. There wasn't as much Robbie as I would have liked but it sort of helped the story along.
I can't believe only one more book and I will have finished the series!
In the story Georgia Nicolson is now out of school and is enjoying summer vacation. She’s spending her time with her family and friends in England. Even though she has chosen Masimo to be her official boyfriend, he has gone to s ...more
However, that is why these books are so amazing. No matter how many times I go back to read them, they make me laugh and feel all fuzzy and warm inside. Sinking into Georgia's mad world full of fabnosity and hilariosity is always a laugh, ...more
I abandoned the attempt to read this book midway through the first chapter, with fond thoughts of fellow diarists Bridget Jones and Princess Mia, who des ...more
The preparations for the Rom and Jul play are great—I have a feeling that it’s going to be a better production than Macuseless. Rosie and her version of the Nurse—with a beard—is priceless: “I am getting in character, Miss Wilson. This is an Elizabethan beard, specially knitted by some old bloke in tights many moons ago.” So wacky! ;)
And yes! There’s a potential duel!
Side note: The Knutschen scale ...more
Georgia is supposed to be growing up, right? Then why is she still acting like she's about 12?? It's so annoying. I think she's very naive about her lurrve situation (view spoiler)[ Masimo having another girlfriend (hide spoiler)]
Part of me doesn't want the series to end, but the other part of me does. a lot.
Stop in the Name of Pants! starts off after Dave and Georgia snog (!) on the camping fiasco the ace gang have been dragged to. And Georgia is crushed and confused because Masimo is in Pizza-a-gogo for a month and wants her to come visit, and she is pretty sure that Dave the Laugh just told her that he loved her. Oy ...more
In typical Georgia fashion, and with the Ace Gang in tow, she'll muddle her way through the summer hols, try to avoid the Swiss Family Mad, and find a way to get to Pizza-a-go-go Land to finally see her Luuurve God. Hilariousity and comedy ensue.
I love Georgia Nicolson. And ...more
You're pretty much guaranteed to laugh out loud ...more
