There are six things very wrong with my life:
1. I have one of those under-the-skin spots that will never come to a head but lurk in a red way for the next two years.
2. It is on my nose
3. I have a three-year-old sister who may have peed somewhere in my room.
4. In fourteen days the summer hols will be over and then it will be back to Stalag 14 and Oberfuhrer Frau Simpson and her bunch of sadistic teachers.
5. I am very ugly and need to go into an ugly home.
6. I went to a party dressed as a stuffed olive.
In this wildly funny journal of a year in the life of Georgia Nicolson, British author Louise Rennison has perfectly captured the soaring joys and bottomless angst of being a teenager. In the spirit of Bridget Jones's Diary, this fresh, irreverent, and simply hilarious book will leave you laughing out loud. As Georgia would say, it's "Fabbity fab fab!"
Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging (Confessions of Georgia Nicolson, #1) Reviews
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 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!
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.
This was just as fabbity-fab as I remember it. Oh, Georgia, you say the most ridiculous shit, and I love you more for being such a drama llama every time. She's a complete loon of a 14-year-old in every possible way. I laughed out loud every few pages. I can't wait to get to the books that I haven't read at the end of the series!
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 brilliantly. Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging never takes itself seriously or tries to teach some kind of moral lesson. Instead, its only aim is to provide tons of fun; and the book succeeds at it every time I read it. I do not think there is any point for me to sing this novel any more praise to convince you to give it a try, rather, I will list some quotes here for you to see if Louise Rennison's humor is your cup of tea.

Dashing out of the house, Jas and I almost fell into Mark, waiting by the corner. Jas (big pal) said she had to run to her house first and she would see me at school. I went a bit red and walked on with him walking beside me. He said, "Have you got a boyfriend?"
I was speechless. What is the right answer to that question? I tell you what the right answer is... a lie, that's the right answer. So I said, "I've just come out of a heavy thing and I'm giving myself a bit of space."
He looked at me. He really did have the biggest gob [mouth:] I have ever seen. "So is that no?"
And I just stood there and then this really weird thing happened... he touched my breast!!! I don't mean he ripped my blouse off, he just rested his hand on the front of my breast. Just for a second, before he turned and went off to school.
What does it mean when a boy rests his hand on your breast? Does it mean he has a megahorn? Or was his hand just tired?
Why am I even thinking about this? No sign of Mark (the breast molester) when I got home, thank goodness.
Still, you would think if a boy rests his hand on your breast he might bother to see you sometime.

Got dressed in short skirt, then me and Jas walked up and down to the main road. We wanted to see how many cars with boys in them hooted at us. Ten!! (We had to walk up and down for four hours... still, ten is ten!!!)
