Time to gird the loins and pucker up.

Blimey O'Reilly's trousers! When Georgia embraced being the girlfriend of a Rock Legend/Luurve God, she thought that was the end of her lovenosity woes. As usual, Georgia is the last to know what she is talking about. Now there's the small matter of a snogging accident involving her matey-type mate Dave the Laugh and some toasted newts

I never seem to get tired of Georgia's diaries. I enjoyed this (9th!!!)book just as much as I did the first 8. Good improvement (in my opinion) is that we finally see Georgia show some maturosity for a change. And I am happy to see her realize that being gorgey porgey is not the only quality you need to look for in a good boyfriend. Can't wait for the next installment! I am on Team Dave the Laugh, of course.

Stop in the name of Pants is the best in series. For the first time, I wasn't just turning the pages for the hilariosity, I was in it for the arc. Why? I'll tell you why, cause Gee is finally starting to realize that she is on the rack of lurve for Dave the Laugh, and who wouldn't be? I so wish I could have him for my very owny.

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

This book is 9th in the "Confessions of Georgia Nicolson" series, and it had me chuckling, snickering, laughing, and snorting out loud. Seriously - I cannot count how many times Rob said, "What's so funny?", only to have me reply, "Heh heh. This BOOK! It is so ridiculous! And Silly! I love it!"

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

In my defense, I've started babysitting for my mum's best friend, who has five kids. The oldest is 14 and a major bookworm, so is constantly recommending books to me. A lot of the stuff she reads, I passed on to her - the Mediator and 1-800-WHERE-R-YOU series, and this one. So the other week, we were sitting in her room once all her brothers had gone to bed, and she started talking about the books that we'd both read. She said that she'd got the 9th Georgia Nicolson book from the library and tha ...more

Another great installment in the Georgia Nicolson series. Unfortunately I only have one left to read!

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

I'm not really sure why I keep reading these. I loved the first three or four, particularly "Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging". Georgia is your typical self-obsessed British teen and the book is a diary of her embarrassment over her parents, ways she tries to make her nose look smaller and all her crushes. My problem with the books as the series goes on is that there is no growth in the main character. I know she is 15 but I am tired of her obsession with herself and her need to focus all ...more

I love this series. I cannot help myself. Book 8 had me commenting perhaps Georgia's character was becoming a bit stale with all her red-bottomosity; Snap, Crackle, Pop! Rennison provides Georgia with some real character building moments in book 9 all relating to Angus - actually quite touching, in a shallow, self-absorbed, Georgia/Florence Nightingale sort of way! A great big Thank You to Ms. Rennison for these books that make me smile everytime. Itching to see the picture - yes, will probably ...more

Same old same old. Nothing to see here just move right on along.
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.

What did I learn from this book? I learned the snogging scale in German, that Masimo is even worse at English than I thought, and that I am far FAR too attached to fictional cats.

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!

Finally Georgia is realising that she belongs with Dave the Laugh!
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!

Have you ever wanted to hear tons of drama and gossip? Well in the story Stop In The Name Of Pants by Louise Rennison there’s a lot of drama from family problems to boyfriend problems to even cat problems! In this realistic fiction story there’s a lot of gossip involved.
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

2.5? Drama for the sake of drama, but at least some nice moments. I am bored of Georgia, even though I am living the grown-up version of her life.

More trouble for Georgia in this edition of her diaries.
Dave is definitely my favorite character in this series.
This book is as hilarious as the rest of the series. Just a great series all around.

I love these books. It may be embarassing to some of my friends that I like them, especially when I read any of this series in public. Over the top laughter from a book is generally frowned upon if members of the public aren't aware that you aren't entirely mad.
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,

My mistake. I see that there were eight previous volumes leading up to the first chapter of "how clever I am" expostulation by the adolescent diarist. If I had started with volume 1, I might have been able to acclimate myself to the cuteness level. At age 57 I am at least 45 years too old to be enchanted by anyone as full of herself as Georgia.

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

Oh the drama! Poor, poor Angus! I was so immersed in the story that I felt Georgia’s reaction. Oh!

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!

Another entry in the “Confessions of Georgia Nicolson” series finds our heroine attempting to decide between Masimo (the Luuurve God) and Dave the Laugh. Who would make the better boyfriend? As usual, lots of British-isms fill the pages (see the handy glossary at the end of the book) and as many (or possibly more) Georgia-isms are included. In fact there is so much “luuurve” and “vair, vair” and “bum-oley” going on that it gets rather annoying at times. However, Georgia has her fans and this ins ...more

I must say I picked out this book because of its peculiar title, only to discover it was book 9 in a series. I do not think I will be reading the others, however, as this book was rather hard to understand, as it was basically a string of random thought, every other word being slang. Half of said slang, I do believe was British, and the rest made up. Both of these forms of slang I am rather unfamiliar with, and that is probably why I didn't not rate this book very high.

As much as I love this series, I'm getting a little bored with the same things happening, where's the thrill of the unknown??

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)

Part of me doesn't want the series to end, but the other part of me does. a lot.
Emelie Johansson
It was fun to read about Georgia again, and she is just as crazy as always. I do enjoy this series and the humor, but sometimes I find it a bit to silly. I also think that Georgia needs to figure out who she wants to be with and I am really hoping that it is going to be Dave in the end. Starting the last one right away to find out.

I laughed, I cried, it was better than ca... Actually, Angus plays a crucial role here and was part of some good character development with Georgia, which I quite liked. Each successive book has been great: full of geniosity and pants. Rennison is hilarious and the books in this series are a blast to read - I hope Georgia keeps going on and on and on.
Phair
Oh, no- is this series getting tired? The story is really getting thin- just a lot of nattering on about the boyfriend(s). Some funny bits with pets & Libby but I'm afraid Georgia & Co aren't quite as as much fun as they used to be.
