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 of silly girlfriends It s written as a diary and a lot of people like to compare it to Bridget Jones I have never read Bridget Jones so I can t really comment on that I can however say that I took this book with me on a trip and illicited many curious glances from strangers in the airport They may have thought I was having a seizure, but in fact I as laughing my bum off.

I don t have much to say about this book other than at many points this book wasthan 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 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.
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 was practically my first celebrity fictional pretend boyfriend He was is so gorgeous.
LET ME LOVE YOU.
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 think I may have to nominate my parents for sainthood for not murdering me I got so bored with it by the middle that I ended up skimming most of the second half Drama, boys, makeup, snotty fucking sense of humor and cattiness Thank god I m not a teenager any I wasn t a fan of the style of this book either It was written in journal format, but as is often the case, it ends up being mostly 1st person But being that Miss Georgia is a drama queen, I can forgive that She d want to pour her heart out But damn it was choppy and random and the timestamps didn t make sense I think a lot of them were supposed to be funny, like Oh, I m going to do this thing and it s going to make me look like a fashion model and then the Sex God will love me and then 2 minutes later, My life is ruined Ha ha ha See how funny that was Yeah Me neither 2 stars.
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 s not targeted towards me, but, it s just sobadThe main character is the most annoying character I ve ever read The only thing she talks about it 1 Her nose2 Boys3 How her friends are losers4 Her nose5 And how her life sucks so much, she wants to dieI ve never seen a fourteen year old act like this, this is a terrible representation of teenagers, y all should be ashamed And the humour felt soforcedIt wasn t even funnyHow do people like this book And WHY is there 10 books in the series TEN books SoI m sorry if you re offended, or if this book was your early teenage happiness but the only reason I wrote such a terrible review was for the crazy coffee lover I mentioned earlier So there, I hope you re happy, you ve made me do a terrible thingI suppose this is what life will be like for me never having a boyfriend, always just living through others 1 star Find all of my reviews at 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 on Presidential Debate Day I never expected to laugh out loud reading the trials and tribulations of this teenie bopper, but I sure as shart did Especially the part about her first tweezing experience Her quest for love with an unattainable crush And trying to get some uhhhhhhhh experience if ya know what I m sayinI lay on my arm until it went numb and then I lifted it with the nonnumb arm onto my breasts I wanted to see what it felt like to have a strange hand on them It was quite nice, but what do I knowNot to mention all of the bits with Angus This isn t a book that will change the world or make you smarter or want to be a better person, but hellAnd sometimes I just want to laugh If you re interested in the same, then you too might find Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging to be
