They just go up your bum, as far as I can tell.Full-Frontal Snogging: Kissing with the trimmings, lip to lip...

    Update 1/2/2017 Accidentally read it yet again. Not a bad beginning-of-the-year pick-me-up.There are times when I just HAVE to read something to perk me up, something light and silly and mindless. Louise Rennison's books always do the trick. It doesn't hurt either that this first book in Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series is a winner of Printz Honor, proving that even the silliest story about make-up, boys, and snogging can be written brillia...

    Find all of my reviews at: http://52bookminimum.blogspot.com/Meet Georgia. She’s basically a 14-year old version of this . . . . I’m sure plenty of other reviews have and will point out that . . . . But you know what? I still am was an asshole much like Georgia back in the day. Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging is a year in the life of Georgia courtesy of her journal and was most definitely just what the doctor ordered for me to read ...

    So most girls, I assume, would have read this back in middle school, but *dramatically flips hair* I’m not like most girls.^That was lame, I apologize. Basically, the only reason I read this book is because my lovely coffee-soddened friend, Pragya, who is probably trying to get back at me for some horrible thing I did but am unaware of, convinced me to. :) :)This book is so terrible and I feel like I probably shouldn’t be rating it, since it...

    Hillariosity! This is another book, from the brits, that people either love or hate. I happen to love this series, and laughed so hard I actually cried. I think people who hate this book are turned off by the main character Georgia. She is vain, self centered, hormonal, ridiculous and, I think, absolutely fabulous. This is the first of a series and we are introduced to her mad little sister libby, her feral cat Angus, her Mum and Dad, and group o...

    I was so sad to hear the passing of Louise.. I read this when I was a teenager and I can never forget how funny it was.. You will be missed Mrs. Rennison RIP..

    I recommend not reading this book in public. Or when you're on your lunch break and still in your office, or in my case cubicle. Early on there's a list in the book and in said list is the main characters' concern that her three year old sister might have peed somewhere in her room. It caught me completely off guard and while trying to block my laughter I ended up snorting so loud that the person on the other side of my cubicle wall came over to ...

    I don't have much to say about this book other than at many points this book was more than hilarious! It was hysterical!The writing was quite good and the protagonist was interesting. She was the typical epitome of most teenage girls on the cusp between childhood and adulthood. I felt it dragged on a bit toward the end. Over all though, it was funny, interesting and most of all, enjoyable.Big thanks to Tatiana for recommending it to me!

    *Sigh* I wanted fluff, not brain-damage. Based on the recommendation from several friends who loved this, I picked this up when I saw it at a library sale, and I figured that now was a good time to read it since I'd just read a duo of emotionally traumatizing books and needed something light and fun after that. But this, aside from having a few funny moments, was mostly a 14 year old selfish angst-fest. If I was that annoying as a 14 year old, I ...

    This book was my bible back in '08.Seriously. My friends and I would refer to this book whenever we had something that could be considered as "boy problems". In '08, I was 13/14, and I'd fallen in love with Aaron Johnson after watching the film so, of course, I had to read the book. It was funny and we could easily relate to it at the time, who am I kidding, I still like to consult Georgia Nicholson in the midst of a crisis.Also Aaron JohnsonHe w...

    I got to the point where I couldn't read this book during silent reading time in my class, it made me laugh so hard. I'm not an easy touch for this type of humor - slapstick and outrageous. ATFFS, however, made me laugh so hard, I snorted. The epistolary nature of the narrative adds so much to the plot. A snippet about a girl who accidentally-on-purpose shaves off her eyebrows is cringingly amusing, but when it's told in five or six installments,...

    10:34 amI feel like yelling at him. "I am fourteen years old, Uncle Eddie! I am bursting with womanhood, I wear a bra! It's a bit on the loose side and does ride up round my neck if I run for the bus ... but the womanly potential is here, you bald coot."Good stuff. Huh, I don't think I've ever worn a training bra. I must be an embarrassment to the sort.10:36 am3. I have a three-year-old sister who may have peed somewhere in my room. I miss my sis...

    Never would I have thought I'd enjoy reading about the drama of a 14 year old girl. Georgia is hilarious and reminded me of a younger, British version of Daria. Between Georgia dressing up as an olive, shaving off her eyebrows, her Scottish wild-cat Angus and her crazy baby sister who calls everyone a tosser... well Georgia is a new favorite.

    Think Diary of a Wimpy Kid for tweens, without the illustrations, and one can pretty much have an accurate idea of what this book is about. Although critically acclaimed and with awards to its name (http://www.harpercollins.com/books/An...) I would personally re-title this book "Diary of a Petty, Shallow Tween."Now, don't misunderstand me. I laughed out loud at portions of the story, and most definitely felt as if I was reading the actual diary o...

    Terrific light reading. The whole series is currently at six books and there will probably be several more. The books are written in diary format, and they happen to be the diaries of the craziest British girl who ever walked this earth, plus she comes equipped with equally crazy friends and a marvelously dysfunctional family. An example of one of Georgia's entries:"Jas phoned and wanted to go shopping - there's some new makeup that looks so natu...

    Let me just start this review by saying I love this book. LOVE IT! This is one of the few books that I've really, truly laughed out loud while reading - there were times I was seriously doubled over. It is hilarious. I'm going to start recommending this book to everyone I know. But, just so you know, this book is strictly a fun read, nothing more (still well worth reading, believe me). Georgia Nicolson is a self-centered fourteen-year-old girl gr...

    Oh My God!!!This was super funny !!!I laughed....and laughed....and laughed much more , I laughed with tears streaming on my face all the time through this book , and I made the mistake of reading some of this in a waiting room in a hospital, I tried very very hard to not laugh out loud , but I couldn't stop shaking, I received some serious puzzled looks and raised eyebrows for that.Georgia is a very hilarious 14 year old girl , who takes us with...

    Georgia is hilarious, it's been a while since a book had me cracking up out loud like this one.I don't get teenage girls because I never got to be one in the full sense of the word. My idea of a weekend was playing football (okay, soccer) with my brothers and punching each other till one of us started crying. So I don't know if the sleepovers and all this obsession with their looks and plotting to get a boy was really normal or what. Georgia took...

    This was so cute and the perfect read for a day home sick from school! I have seen the movie several times and finally decided to read the book. I love Georgia's voice and am off to go read the second!

    I have to re-read this book every once in a while due to sheer hilarity. I am not allowed beverages while reading this book.

    This book is laugh out loud funny! The proper English slang took some getting used to, but luckily the author has included a glossary in the back.Georgia is full of hilariosity and she along with her Ace Gang, mad sister, and fat vati will have you laughing like a loon on loon tablets. Gee is neither kind nor cruel, smart nor intelligent, but witty she is and she is forever getting herself into a jam due to her neurotic nature and obsession with ...

    I've never laughed this much while reading a book in a very long time! This was such a quick and hilarious book that I finished it in only few hours! This is exactly what I needed to get over my reading slump. Highly recommend this book for its silliness and hilarious scenes!

    Bahahahahahahahahaha!Who HASN'T stolen dad's razor to experiment with one's eyebrow hair?I was feeling a little down in a post Silly Seasons sort of way, and a friend suggested I get involved with the wonderful world of Georgia Nicolson. And I was delighted.Don't expect to learn anything of any significance from these books. In fact, they're likely to leave you slightly stupider, if anything.But if ever you're at a point in your reading career in...

    I always appreciate a good reread of this hilarious, charming book. Even the immature elements of this book are forgivable because it so perfectly and wholly captures the young teenage psyche. Silly, but so funny.

    WHATAHOOT...This was probably the best use of 2.5 hours that I've spent since reading Bill Bryson's, "A Walk in the Woods".Brit comedian/author Louise Rennison takes on the teen female mindset with hilariosity and realism. Rennison's nailed the feelings, the drama-queen world-view and the all-or-nothing attitude down pat. Our heroine, Georgia Nicolson, may be British, and a good 32 years my junior, but I too was Georgia...once upon a time.I laugh...

    This is the funniest book I've ever read. It's the journal of Georgia Nicholson, who is often on the rack of lurve. The book is British, and has lots of odd British humor, but plenty of humor that will make even the most curmudgeonly person laugh their butt off. I can't think of a single person who would not find at least part of this book hilarious. I've never laughed so hard at a book in my life. At one point I laughed so hard someone asked me ...

    One of my favorite series! In middle school, I had to take a Sharpie to my copy of ON THE BRIGHT SIDE, I'M NOW THE GIRLFRIEND OF A SEX GOD and mark out "SEX" so I wouldn't be mortified reading at the dinner table. However, Rennison is so funny that I snorted my food and mortification was inevitable.

    3.5 STARSOkay this was a REALLY quick read. I was eager to read this book because I shamelessly LOVE the movie, I could watch it 897645 times and not ever get tired of it. The book however was quite different from the movie. I think the movie is played out a lot better than the book. For example, in the book Robbie and Georgia literally barely said a word to each other yet there already is the insta-love interest kinda thing. + 3/4th of the book ...
