Confessions of Georgia Nicolson by Louise Rennison

Alright so I decided because these are just small books and I don't plan on long reviews for these that I'll do these two reviews together. This if for the second and third books in the Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series by Louise Rennison, On the Bright Side, I'm Now the Girlfriend of a Sex God and Knocked Out by My Nunga-Nungas.

brightsideDescription (from Goodreads): "Georgia Nicolson has started dating the Sex God (aka Robbie). So life should be perfect . . . except in Georgia's life, nothing is ever perfect. Her cat, Angus (the size of a small Labrador), is terrorizing the neighborhood. Her sister, Libby (who is slightly mad), hides her pooey knickers at the bottom of Georgia's bed.

Then the Sex God breaks it off because she's too young. It's time for a plan. It's time for a Red Herring. It's time for Georgia to become a "heartless boy magnet!""

knockedDescription (from Goodreads): "As I was going out of my bedroom door I remembered my nungas. Perhaps I should take some precautions to keep them under strict control. Maybe bits of Sellotape on the ends of them to keep them from doing anything alarming? I'd like to trust them, but they are very unreliable.The irrepressible heroine of the Michael L. Printz Honor Book "Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging is back, and funnier than ever! Georgia has finally landed Robbie the Sex God, but he's never around, and Georgia's ex, Dave the Laugh, is starting to look quite dreamy. Strangely, so does just about every other guy Georgia meets, even the new French teacher.

In this third installment of Georgia's hilarious confessions, Georgia's "red bottomosity" is out of control! Whatever will happen next?"

Alright so like the first book, both of these were really quick reads, I read them in a day or two.

I think the second one is my favorite by far. There is a bit of a warning, I believe on the back of the first book about reading the book in public, it's really a good thing to keep in mind when reading any of the books. I received some of the oddest looks as I read these books. Even by my parents. There was this one part I was crying I was laughing so hard and it was my parents who were giving me the strangest looks. Seriously, if you ever read these books I don't recommend reading them with people around.

The third one wasn't as good as the second, I feel, but I think that's mostly because I enjoy the books for the humor, and there seemed to be a bit less, but when there was some it was great. Thing are getting pretty dramatic in Georgia's life though by the end of the third book, as she begins to like both Dave the Laugh and her Sex God boyfriend Robby.

Speaking of Dave though, I was really happy with his introduction in the second book. He seemed like a good character in the movie, and I was so happy we got to see more of his humor in the book. I loved when he had Georgia's friends singing "We are the Champions" in the second book, and he was just such a giant sweet-heart. I really want to be on Robbie's side, but Dave really makes it hard. I can't wait to start the fourth book.

I gave both books 4/5.

This is a book from my own personally library.
