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

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.
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

“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
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

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. If you want a ...more
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!

(view spoiler)
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.

Amazon Editorial Review:

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

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
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

14-year-old Georgia's life is like this:

"He was so and er and yum yum and scrumbos and yummy scrumbos. His hair was all floppy, he had on dark jeans and a white top, and you could see his shoulders (one on each side)."

I remember age 14 being more like this:

"Rosie sent me a note in maths. It said, I am an equilateral triangle.
I wrote back and said, Does that mean all your angles are equal? and she wrote, I don't know. I'm a triangle."

For me, this story is totally laugh out loud funny. It feels like the whole book is one inside joke after another. I really enjoyed reading this, and look forward to reading more.

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

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.

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

On the Bright Side, I'm Now the Girlfriend of a Sex God: Further Confessions of Georgia Nicolson by Louise Rennison talks about a group of losers (girls) that saw two new gods in their school on the first day. One of those girls was Georgia Nicolson that fell in love with a 17-year-old prince charming named Robbie. Georgia tried several times to impress him, but the more she tried the more things were worse. Robbie loved it when Georgia messed up. After a while, Robbie started dating a popular, ...more

Georgia and her friends devise the Red Herring plan that involves a boy names Dave who she uses to get Robbie back. When she realizes she is falling for Dave she tells him the truth and breaks it off. This story follows Georgia’s hilarious intimate thoughts about her family, friends,
Louise Rennison never disappoints! I was having the most awful week/weekend, and I picked up this second book of the series. I know, I know...the title seems sketch. I promise it's clean! Anyway, I have to read these books alone because I die laughing. Seriously. I chortle. No, it's more than that. I throw my head back, guffawing. I don't even know if "guffaw" is ever written with -ing, and if it's not, it's created now because that's exactly what happens when reading this series. So funny! I ju ...more
This is the story of a 14 year old British girl named Georgia. She is a traditional teenager with anxieties about boys, a silly way of looking a life, and nothing ever seems to go her way.

The book is written sort of like a diary, but with time tags on it that made me think of Twitter. The only difference was between Rennison's writing style for this series of books and Twitter is the concept of no word limit in the diary entries.

The content was young adultish, fun, and relaxing. For non-Brits,
Once again, Gee had me laughing out loud at her craziness and hilariosity. Just when it seems Georgia finally has her Sex God he decides that she may not be old enough for him afterall. Armed with her Ace Gang's wisdomosity, Gee sets out to prove that she is full of pride, dignosity and is indeed worthy of a Sex God.

These books are ridiculous and while this installment wasn't as fun as the first, It still made me giggle more than once. I lobes Georgia with all her crazy antics and am excited fo

Georgia, the rude schoolgirl who's wrestling with her Cosmic Horn, is quite confused by boys and school, drowning in her usual self hate overlapped with overconfidence and worry about her future. She is dating Robbie, who is really hot and can kiss, but she might have to move to New Zealand. Even if that doesn't happen, what if she's not actually right for the Sex God? Should she play games the way women are supposed to to make guys jealous, or will she destroy another boy's heart even worse tha ...more

On the Bright Side I’m Now the Girlfriend of a Sex God by Louise Rennison is about a young girl, Georgia Nicolson. Georgia is dating the “Sex God” the most wanted boy at school. While dating him she runs into many distractions and problems. Her father gets offered a great new job in New Zealand that would make her family move over there. But she can't break up with the Sex God. He was the best thing that has happened to her. Georgia does everything to stop her family to move. She eventually con
Unbelievably hilarious! I cant't get over how well Louise Rennison pinned down the shallow mind of a teenage girl. At first you think Georgia is overly self-centered and then you realize you remember having those same strings of thought at that age. I love how random her journal entries are and how she just lives her life being goofy. I can't wait to read the next chapter of Georgia's life!

If you decide on reading this series, don't think it's going to give you life lessons and lots to think about. Instead it will teach you about the elastic band theory and the meaning of words like maturiosity. However, this book (and series) is still fabbity-fab... With knobs on.
Reading this book reminds me of when I was about 12 and I worshipped the film based on the first two books of this series. My friend and I copied everything they did (including the pencil test). It made me cringe rememb
Kat (Lost in Neverland)

This really is nearly identical to The Princess Diaries. Except Georgia is possibly even more whiny than Mia and much meaner. Still, it's funny (albeit a bit insulting at times) and enjoyable. I look forward to reading more of the series.
