Georgia is insane, as is her mum and her (wild)cat Angus. Libby, her baby sister, is a trip and I have to say she's very patient and tolerant for an older sister. But I guess she'd have to be with her dad in Kiwi-a-gogo and her mum in the clouds.

This books is just a good laugh. The stories are great and Georgia's antics are too much. I can't wait to see what she gets up to later on in the series.

This is a great read for any age. ( )

I read the first two books in this series consecutively and briefly said what I thought of them in the comments on "Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging: Confessions of Georgia Nicolson" (Confessions of Georgia Nicolson Book 1), if someone would like to know. ( )

This book was every bit as fun as I expected it to be. This series is just really cute, funny and light-hearted. Georgia is simply hilarious and I never tire of her dramatic reactions. Her witty diary entries are infectious and I find them impossible to look away from. This installment did drag at parts but it was mostly as entertaining and amusing as the first. I'm certainly looking forward to see what else is in store for Georgia. ( )

As with the first book in the Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series, I just don't have a lot to say about this book as it is just so average. In fact, I'd even go so far as saying this one was more bland than the first one. Again, it is a YA novel in the vein of Bridget Jones' Diary, but without nearly the presence of the inimitable Bridget Jones. I imagine that most young girls would love this book. I know I thought this series was more fun when I was a teenager. As an adult, it just doesn't pull me in the way it did. When I was a teenager, Georgia seemed like the cool girl in school that I'd want to be friends with. As an adult, Georgia seems like a spoiled brat who is completely clueless while trying to pass herself off as knowledgeable.

At the end of the day, this book (and the series) is a light, fun read that you can power through in a couple of hours. I'd definitely recommend this series to a young girl over something like Twilight, but I'd probably imagine that most adults would want to stay clear of this one. Two and a half stars. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0064472264, Paperback)

Fourteen-year-old Georgia Nicolson is back in British author Louise Rennison's irreverent, laugh-out-loud sequel to the Michael L. Printz Honor Book Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging. Written in diary form, these truly hilarious books chronicle the often minute-by-minute, very dramatic, and significant flip-flops of a teenager's psyche.

7:18 p.m.
My eyes are all swollen up like mice eyes from crying. Even my nose is swollen. It's not small at the best of times, but now it looks like I've got three cheeks. Marvelous. Thank you, God.

9:00 p.m.
I'll never get over this.

9:10 p.m.
Time goes very slowly when you're suicidal.

What tragedy has her so distraught? Her parents have told her she's moving to New Zealand just when she's managed to snog (kiss--look it up in the glossary) the SG (Sex God, a.k.a Robbie). This is of course not the only source of drama in Georgia's eventful life. Her half Scottish wildcat, Angus, who is the size of a small Labrador, herds the poodles next door and terrorizes the neighborhood. Her little sister, Libby, who is slightly mad, stores her "pooey knickers" and her scuba-diving Barbie doll in Georgia's bed. Her mother (from whom she inherited her orangutan eyebrow gene and possibly her "gigantic basoomas") is clearly inhabiting Earth solely to make her life miserable, and even her best friend Jas is "half girl, half turnip."

Despite the fact that she's spared from going to "Kiwi-a-gogo land," things don't get much better for Georgia. She's suspended for a childish prank right before her dad returns from New Zealand, she falls in love with the SG who dumps her for being too young, and Dave, the "red-herring" boyfriend she's using to make the SG jealous calls her a "heartless whatsit." And, she continues, "the spot on my bum is probably a boil. I wonder what Buddha would do now?" Rennison's comedic timing is brilliant. Adolescent angst ("I hope I am not driven to the brink of madness by grief") vanishes less than an hour later ("Angus can fetch sticks!!!") and sometimes even sooner. (Warning: Do not read this book while riding a train or bus unless you don't care what people think of intermittent explosive laughter. Seriously.) (Ages 12 and older) --Karin Snelson

Fourteen-year-old Georgia continues her diary in which she records her misadventures trying to reclaim the attention of seventeen-year-old Robbie, while coping with her friends, family, and dog-like cat Angus at the same time.
