Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging was first picked up by my mother. I remember scanning the shelves in the bookstore for a good mystery novel in the young adult section when my mom excitedly lunged towards me with this book. On the Bright Side, I'm Now the Girlfriend of a Sex God was in my mom's other hand.

Being a fairly innocent twelve-year-old, having my mother recommend a book with the word "SEX" in the title was absolutely horrifying, especially in public. I remember her saying, "If y

To be honest, this book wasn't as good as I hoped it was going to be. Maybe it's because our protagonist is 14 and I'm...really not, but in all honesty Georgia did come across as a bit of a bitch. She's mean to her friends (and Jas is mean to her back...unless the author was going for subtle undertones of a commentary on teenage female friendships...but I really don't think she was!) the language she uses is language I never used and the kids I work with don't use...it did seem like upper-middle ...more

This book was a laugh.out.loud book, i read it in form and laughed after everyone said to me "enjoy your book then?" and i was really confused because i didn't realised i was doing it. This book would appeal to girls aged 12-17, because it is "confessions" of a teenage girl and they are teenage ages. This book is made up of hillarious diary entries and i would most definently recommend it to read; just be sure to not read it on the tube, or anywhere in public as a matter of fact.

1.5 stars. Georgia Nicolson is a spectacularly nasty girl. I realized that her stupid antics and enormous ego are meant for comedy, but there was literally nothing endearing about her. She is mean to her friends, self-centered, completely disrespectful of everyone else in her life and very vulgar. (Honestly, the VULGARITY!! I know this is (sadly) typical of a lot of British humour, but really, this is a book for children!)

Angus, the half-Scottish wildcat, is the only likable character.

However,

This book is a sort of fun book, a light read and with no thinking involved. Its a sort of book for lazy days with nothing to do. If i went into a bookstore i would not have chosen a book like this. Elena gave it to me as a thoughtful and fun gift. I did read it for i had nothing else to do. This book is an enjoyable read.

It is about a girl and all her problems she has with boys, friends and how she deals with it in her mid teen years. It is written in a casual and fun dairy form.

I read the Angus series about 4 years ago (I was 12) and I thought it was great back then.

Re-reading them for my 25 Book Reading Challenge and I can safely say I think they're still as bloody funny as they were in the first place. A few bits made me cringe (I.e the 'snogging scale' and not wearing a bra) but none the less I thought it was equally as relatable as it was funny.

It really is my sense of humour. I loved the film when it came out and I love the book as well - they're so different tha

This book contains the first two books in the Georgia Nicolson series, Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging and On the Bright Side, I'm Now the Girlfriend of a Sex God (good grief, these long titles…). These first two books introduce characters and concepts that are heavily referenced in subsequent books (Dave the Laugh, the snogging scale, etc.). Georgia's life only gets wackier from here on out, which is why I think I prefer the later books in the series; however, these first two books are ...more

Just finished the first book: Luckyly I was not that stupid and superficial when I was fourteen and luckyly I didn't read the book at that age. I don't think I could make it in the adulthood healthy after reading that ¬¬

I would prevent my little sister from reading that, although the book was enjoyable and funny sometimes and I kinda like her at the end. I was a little disappointed to see that the Georgia in the movie and the Georgia in the books is not the same person at all. The one in the boo

If I had to decribe Georgia Nicolson in one word, the most appropriate word would probably be "bonkers." Because thats what she is. But she is incredibly likeable. She is a 14-year-old girl who is annoyed with her parents who dare to have a life at the mature age of 40-ish, and thinks about a boy all the time. But not just any boy, mind you - Robbie aka the Sex God. Having seen the film in which Robbie is played by Aaron Taylor Johnson I totally understand Georgias determination to get him.

I absolutely loved this series when I read it a few years ago. I got the first for my birthday and read them all in a short space of time. I loved the way the characters were created and I think for me it was a very relatable book, but it was also very funny and sometimes had me laughing out loud. Looking back now I'm not sure I would enjoy the books to the same extent as I would say they're definitely for young teens but I loved following the story and the ending was fantastic, it had me crying ...more

When I read the reviews for this book I thought, it can't really be that funny can it? Books don't usually make me laugh out loud. Sometimes I'll think, this is where the author is trying to be funny but I'm not laughing. But with this book I found myself being able to relate to georgia and think of how truly funny everything would be if I were her in that situation. So yes, this book does actually make you laugh, even if you don't laugh you will come to realise that at the least it makes you sm ...more

I found Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging at the local library and was, at first, a little anxious to pick up the book, as I did not enjoy the movie version.

I am glad, however, that I did. It was a fun and quirky read with many parts of the book making me giggle.
Georgia's insight and how she sees the world was funny to read and her take on the world of boys was even funnier.

Not as good as I thought it would be. Probably my fault for having high expectations. Sadly I found the characters immature and very self absorbed. I would have liked to see less of the shorted diary entries and more conversations between Georgia and her friends and family. Think I'll stick to the film from now on.
Kathryn
Totally loved this book! I wish I had read it when I was a bit younger, but I still enjoyed it now.
The story reminded me of my own teenage years. I could really relate to some of the things Georgia went through. (I accidently shaved my eyebrows off when I was 14 too...)
Very fun read and I want to read the rest of the series now.

Ahhhh. . . Middle school memories. I used to be VERY obsessed with the movie, particularly the hunky Aaron Johnson. HAHAHA.

I love Georgia's sarcasm throughout the book, although, I really hate her sometimes due to her jealousy over Jas and how she treats her.

Overall, LOVE LOVE LOVE the book.

I read all the books in the series...multiple times. I really wish I read it when I was teenager. Whenever I feel down I reach for this book because it never fails to cheer me up. I absolutely love Georgia and her adventures and really wish there was more books in the series.

With all the hype about it i assumed it'd be a good book. Havent seen the movie yet, but apparently thats better. As for the book, I thought it was rubbish. Boring, barely had a plot, and was very easy to read. Thought it was absolute rubbish
