Rereading this book series is such an experience for me because one the one hand, it still holds up completely, is hilarious and charming, and takes me right back to the days when I first read it.

On the other hand though, I find it extremely alarming how rude Georgia is to everyone around her, especially the following: Nauseating P. Green (Georgia is a straight up bully and it's horrible how she talks about this poor girl), Jas (as a kid, when I thought Georgia was the most hilarious person on t

Another couple of hours with Georgia and, as expected, no life lessons but tons of hilariosity. Can't say much happens in this installment. The highlights are: Georgia's ever-growing nunga-nungas (a.k.a. basoomas a.k.a. breasts) which once again attract a wrong kind of attention, this time from a Scottish lad; a serious case of red-bottomosity (a.k.a. general horn a.k.a. sluttiness); and Angus's trouser snake removal operation.

Some favorite bits:

I got a real kick out of these funny, honest, unsentimental YA books. I would have loved (and I mean LOVED) them in high school. They're written as the diary of a British girl named Georgia, and she covers all the drama, hilarity, embarassment, etc., of the high school years, only with a delightful Englishness. Really fun, reeeeeeally amusing. I don't imagine they'd meet with much approval from the parents of American teenagers, though- Georgia is pretty frank (even crude- she's a teenager after ...more

I personally think the series started to lack.
It has started to become a bit repetitive in topics for Georgia to think of and I now it's more boy focused I'm a little less interested. In the first two boys weren't the biggest topic.
I have the fourth so I may finish that just to add to my read shelf but I'm unsure at the moment.

Three books in and I'm done with the series. Already they're getting really tiresome. Georgia is 14 but acts like she's both 20 and 5 at the same time. Whinging on about her parents (who have absolutely NO consistency to their weak characterizations) being weirdos and her egg-headed uncle one minute, and then snogging the life out of guys who are quite a bit older than her, wearing short skirts, and going to clubs the next.
I realized that so far there has been no real plot to the series: Georgia

While caring for a very sick relative (and dealing with all the stress that goes along with such a task), I wanted something fun and silly and light-hearted to read to leaven the seriousness of my ongoing work. I recalled seeing Louise Rennison's books back when I worked in a book store, and thought I'd track down the first in her series for my ereader. Well, that was not possible, since the publisher has decided to make only the third book (this one) and subsequent books available electronicall ...more

Oh no no no Georgia, don't you dare.

This isn't as funny or as much fun as the previous two books. Maybe I've overdosed on Georgia? Maybe three in one day was too much (or two much, hahaha). Sven was still funny and the girls were still ridiculous but the humour just wasn't as there, you know? (view spoiler)

4 Stupid & Hilarious Stars

And I knocked down the third book of this series. I'm going a little fast with these books, but its because no matter how kind of stupid they, I cannot put them down. Always laughing at her crazyness and I have even absorb some slang of her. Sacré bloody bleu!

The humor in these books is unparalleled. Do not read in public unless you want to be laughing like a loon for all to see. Georgia is so endearingly oblivious to her self-centered, superficial, player ways. From her lines about her Vati to her tales of Angus the Scottish half-Labrador cat to her boy-crazy musings, I just can't put these books down.

Dave the Laugh is my favorite YA mate of all time, and one of my favorite Dave the Laugh scenes is in this book. (Oh, that clown nose!)

I love these books. Yes, the main character is shallow and vain and quite self-absorbed, but most teenage girls are to a certain extent, right? I love that despite these things, Georgia remains a lovable character, and we get to see the chinks in her armour, as it were. She really does love her parents, even though most of the time they annoy her half to death and do things she finds appalling. You didn't feel like that as a teenager?! I did! She cares about her friends. She makes mistakes that ...more

I thought the book was insanely funny in some parts. I think a possible theme for this book would either be love or friendship. I would choose these themes because in the beginning Georgia talks about her friends and even though in some parts of the book she gets mad or annoyed because of them they still are there for each other. Love could possibly be a good theme because she is dating someone that she really likes and he is in the book a lot like when they talk on the phone or in person or whe ...more

3.5 stars again!

God damnit, actually Georgia is such a bad friend, incredibly disrespectful towards her father and ridiculously self-centred it is disgusting hhahah. Yet still I cannot tear myself away from these books.

I think it's because I love the movie so much that I just am eager to know what happens. Although there are so many differences. I just realised that in the book Tom is younger than Robbie whereas in the movie they're twins. Also in the movie I love Georgia and Jas's friendship

Oh my goodness, Georgia is hilarious! Her journal starts right back where she left us banned from school and a Sex God's girlfriend. I think the best part of this is her ridiculous thoughts and sentences. And the fact that she is SO selfish that I don't think her friend Jas (who she talks to a lot) ever gets a full sentence in!

In the ever mind changing pace of a teenager, while Georgia is so happy to be SG's girlfriend (swoon, and let us think about the snogging) she also may possibly like Dave
There are books that are meant to inspire you and to open your mind to new ideas. The characters always learn some incredibly important life lesson and become a better person by the end of the story. This is not one of those books.

Georgia is incredibly shallow and vain and she stays that way for the entire book (and series for that matter). And that is fine by me. She is 15 and, while not a great role model, a pretty accurate representation of a 15 year old girl. Well at least 15 year olds that

Never having met Georgia before I felt like I had dropped into someone’s life midway through a conversation. I can’t imagine many teenage girls acting/talking like her, and I found myself really irritated by how rude she was to those around her. The saving grace with this was the diary-style made it very easy to read. I just didn’t care whether she got her ‘Sex God’ boyfriend or chose her friend...won’t be doing another one of these if I can help it.

This third installment to the Georgia Nicolson confessions is good and quite amusing, though I must say I didn’t like it as much as the first two installments. However, these books are certainly addictive. The scary thing is that I’m unconsciously adopting some of Georgia’s phrases. I caught myself thinking one day as I was sitting by the air conditioner, “It’s nippy noodles here!”…then found myself wondering, “Where did that come from?” Oh, so bleak! ;) I completely forgot that it came from thi ...more

The first book was refreshing and funny, soured only by continous lesbian bashing. The second book was decidedly less so, and by this third installment, I am personally quite sick of listening to materialistic, shallow and self-centered Brit Georgia Nicholson whine about her parents, friends, and school. Even the subplot - Angus' courting of the neighbors' cat is so out of control Georgia's dad threatens to have him spayed - is not funny.

Oh, so this is why the girls at the back of the class started referring to breasts as 'nunga-nungas', I never quite understood that. Honestly, nothing much happens in this book but I've come to enjoy Confessions of Georgia Nicolson, not really for the plot, but...well...for the lols!

A little bit funny, but not hugely so. Not as funny as the previous two in my opinion.
Georgia Nicolson is back once again, more hormone driven than ever. We are served a grand helping of Sexgoderosity with snogfests on the side!

Georgia finds herself in a state of confusiosity and red-bottomosity - torn between Robbie the Sex God and Dave the Laugh! Who would've thought the Red Herring from Operation Elastic Band would backfire! Ear snogging or nip libbling...Hmm tough choice!

This instalment is just as hilarious as the previous books, if not, more! I found myself laughing out lou
