You don't have to be a teenager to appreciate the humorous and often self-absorbed ravings found in 14-year-old Georgia Nicolson's diary, but it certainly helps. Now fans of Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging -- Georgia's first set of hilarious musings on life -- can get another peek into the mind of this wryly inquisitive English lass in the appealing sequel: On the ...more

As seen on The Readventurer

The only thing I am going to say here is that Dave the Laugh is the best boyfriend ever. I have no idea why, for so long, I thought the Sex God Robbie was a good choice for Georgia. Dave is a total dream boat...

...and yes, I know I am twice his age.

I think I liked the second book even more than the first one in the series, because Dave the Laugh is my favorite character. I love Georgia's confusion as to whether it's more important to have a boyfriend who makes you go jelloid or one who makes you laugh.
Really enjoying this re-read of the series. Bring on the next one!

This book was every bit as fun as I expected it to be. This series is just really cute, funny and light-hearted. Georgia is simply hilarious and I never tire of her dramatic reactions. Her witty diary entries are infectious and I find them impossible to look away from. This installment did drag at parts but it was mostly as entertaining and amusing as the first. I'm certainly looking forward to see what else is in store for Georgia.

4 LAUGH AT LOUD STARS!

“He said, 'Hi, gorgeous,' which I think is nice. I admire honesty.”

So, once again Georgia Nicolson made laugh a lot with her occurences. I swear that I would ditch this book if it wasn't for all the stupid and funny things she said, because the story perse is boring.

“She got up and started making her hair have more bouncability with the air brush thing again. I waited until she had got it just right (in her opinion); then I hit her over the head with a pillow. She started t

Oh, what’s the matter with that Georgia! How could she do that to the poor kid? Dave the Laugh’s the perfect guy… “Dave phoned. He said, ‘I just called to say I really liked you. Night night.’” I think that’s really cute. How could she not fall in love? Oh, I don’t know… but there’s definitely something off with that “Sex God” of hers. When I think about the two of them, that jailbait infatuation, it congers up an image of Gidget and the Kahuna. ;) But it’ll probably end the same way with Gidget ...more

What I like most about the Georgia Nicolson series is that it doesn’t try to be posh. It strives for absurdosity and succeeds. This installment picked up where Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging left off, with Georgia losing the SG and protesting a move to Kiwi-a-gogo Land (a.k.a. New Zealand). From there, it only gets crazier: cat mating, Elastic Band theory, Dr. George Clooney, the German language, a wheelbarrow, etc.

Georgia is like the friend you want to dope slap, but just shake your h

I was in the library looking for a book to read, and I came across this one that I had actually failed at finding before. Georgia Nicolson comes back as funny as ever, she is now the girlfriend of Robbie (who she calls Sex God) and she thinks of nothing but snogging him. When he dumps her for being "too young" she tries to finds a way to get him back. There were many quotes that I love in the book, but one of my favourites was "What is there to laugh at? I am on the rack of love. Life is a sham ...more

Georgia is quite literally the description of a self-centred, over-dramatic teenager, who only wants all the attention on her and no one else, which is pretty annoying but simply accurate on how most of the young teenagers are. Even though this was the case and that I sometimes I cringed at the use of words (this book is written as a diary of a 14 years old girl so vocabulary included), I couldn't stop reading.

I found myself turning pages and turning pages and turning pages. The boo

Actual rating: 1.5 stars

Initial thoughts: My intention was to read all the books in the series. I don't think that's gonna happen after all. The first book was half-way entertaining. This second one was tiresome to read. There were some amusing moments but on the whole it wasn't all that funny. Georgia is beyond self-absorbed. Sure, it's her diary and she's 14 but she shows no respect for anyone in her life, not even her best friend. In fact, she displays no true affection for her best friend at

This book has been one of my favorites! I ususally am not a big fan of reading, but this book had totally been amazing. It's about a girl named Georgia who is from Britain, so she uses a lot of unfamiliar words that are fun to read. She was the girlfriend of a boy named Robbie a.k.a "the sex god." He found out something that made him break the relationship, and as you can imagine she got very upset. Georgia really likes him so she does some pretty funny stuff to get his attention.

When I was a teenager, I was nowhere near as boy crazy as Georgia but I was every bit as dramatic... Georgia is so ridiculous. Like, I kinda think it's hilarious when something unbelievably embarrassing happens to her because she is so awful to other people, haha.

Why Georgia Nicolson Rocks
(On the Bright Side, I'm Now The Girlfriend of a Sex God edition)


1. She calls breasts “basoomas” and, less commonly, “nunga nungas”. (“‘Well, he says that if you get hold of a breast and pull it out and then let it go…it goes nunga nunga nunga!’”)

2. She seems obsessed with pants/shorts. Besides the obvious metaphorical “nuddy-pants” and “furry-shorts” (which we see in later titles), she’s always going on about how big someone’s shorts ar

This was given to me by a friend. I actually read the first book by this author, which I thought was Bridget Jones but with teenage angst. The best character was Angus the wild cat. The humor was there but wore thin pretty quickly. The best thing about this was the title, IMO.

Fourteen-year-old Georgia Nicolson is back in British author Louise Rennison's irreverent, laugh-out-loud sequel to the Michael L. Printz Honor Book Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging. Written

It's OK, I'm Wearing Really Big Knickers was another barrel of laughs, but it just wasn't as good as the first book which was Marvy and double cool with knobs. The story continues from where we left off in the first book. Mutti (Mum) delivers the news that they are going to New Zealand to see Vati (Dad). And what perfect timing for Georgia - after finally becoming the girlfriend of a Sex God!

I recognize that this series is completley ridiculous; that doesn't mean I don't really like it. I got this from the library yesterday. I also finished it yesterday. They're really fast reads.

A few things:
- Whenever I read these books I feel the urge to talk like Georgia, good thing I don't. I"m sure I'd get REALLY strange looks.
- Reading this I realized Georgia is a kind of a shitty friend. She gets mad at Jas over the stupidest stuff, especially whenever she wants to talk about herself or T

The hilariosity and sophisticosity of Georgia is unparalleled in her second diary. Don't read any of these books in public, you will startle unsuspecting commuters or passersby with laughter and snorts.

Some select quotes:

Dave the Laugh had left me a card at home which said, One-legged girls are a push-over. Love Dave xxxxxx.

Nothing seems to bother her now that Vati is coming home. She might have put his moustache 101 out of her mind but I haven't. In fact, to remind her I have drawn a mousta

I hereby admit that I am a fan-girl of Georgia Nicolson.

Once again, Georgia did not disappoint. This second book in Louise Rennison's all too funny series about young Georgia Nicolson - British teenager extraordinaire - was perfect. It picks up just after she has discovered that Vati (her father) will be moving her family to Kiwi-a-gogo Land (New Zealand) and thus her life is effectually over. After snagging (and snogging) the Sex God (aka Robbie) in the previous book, Georgia is still up to her

Hah!This book was HILARIOUS!!!! I think that some of the characters are just absolutely crazy.Georgia is quite a character. She is funny and witty sometimes, but to be completely honest it doesn't seem like she's a very nice person. I mean, she bosses around her friends and says really hurtful things about them. Like with Jas. That girl is Georgia's target and she's one of her best friends! I really don't get why any of Georgia friends would want to stay buddies with her.

This book is kind of set up like a diary yet some pages tell the story as it is happening. Georgia is a girl who is growing up. She is 14 and her family may be making a huge move. She is so upset about this because she is the girlfriend of a Sex God. She writes about all her feelings and sometimes it is very random or she will rant about the same problem for a while. The Sex God is an older boy who keeps their relationship a secret at first. They meet a few times and kiss or as they call it, sno ...more

At first I though Georgia could not get any more relatable, but then I see she has a long-suffering friend called Jas who has to put up with her madness too! (Next thing you know, she'll have a friend called Rosey who replies to her texts with 'God help us all')
