For Georgia, the more things change, the more they stay the same. Just when she thought she was the official one-and-only girlfriend of Masimo, he's walked off into the night with the full hump, leaving Georgia all aloney on her owney-again. All because Dave the Laugh tried to do fisticuffs at dawn with him! Two boys fighting over Georgia? It's almost as romantic as Romeo and Juliet . . . though perhaps a touch less tragic. It's time for Georgia to get to the bottom (oo-er) of this Dave the Laugh spontaneous puckering business once and for all. It's like they always say: If you snog a mate in the forest of red bottomosity and no one is around to see it, is he still a mate? Or is he something more?

The entire series is a must-read and really well plotted story. I loved its complications, whuch were usually hilarious situations to read about. Georgia is lovable though a bit crazy and I'm sad to see her go. The only complaint I had was that she should have spent more time with TheBoyWhoShallNotBeNamed because it was a little annoying to wait until she finally realized that he was the one for her and then have them spend the total of one page in unashamed love. That was a bit ridiculous. But otherwise this book was amazing, and I recommend it for teen girls who need a god laugh and are not really uptight. You kind of a need a sense of humor for this series.

Great ending to the Georgia series. Was just as funny as the previois nine and loved how she ended up having to choose between Masimo and Dave the Laugh (he really is quite the laugh). Just wish the ending went out with a little more hilariosity rather than sophisticosity (lol). Still a great book and sad to see the series ending. If there were twentu more, I'd read them all in a heartbeat :)

Georgia Nicolson has a great life. She has a sexy boyfriend, great friends, and a pretty active social life. Things took an abrupt halt, however, when her beau, Masimo, went off in a huff after the school dance, because Dave the Laugh decided to get into a fight with him over Georgia. Two boys fighting over you - who could ask for anything more? Now, both boys aren't talking to her and Masimo won't return any of her phone calls. To make matters worse, Wet Lindsay, the school's popular mean girl, is rubbing it in her face that she's still with Georgia's first crush, Robbie. Will Georgia's love life straighten out or is she doomed for spinsterville already? A humorous conclusion to this popular young adult series. It's entertaining and readers will enjoy following Georgia's love and social life. The characters are easy to relate to and they keep the book's pace up well. It is recommended, however, that you read the previous books in order to understand the unique way Georgia talks and expresses herself.

MY THOUGHTS When I first picked up this series it was honestly on a whim. The books were $0.33 per book so I picked up a bunch. I wasn't sure if they were really the books for me. Even after reading the first book I wasn't sure if the series was for me, but I decided to keep going and I am glad for that. I've had trouble before with books that try to show the teenage girl experience or a teenage girl diary and instead they felt like whiney eleven-year-olds. This series was not the case. This is such a fun series. I love Georgia's humor and how she goes about life. It took me a bit to warm up to her way of talking/writing, but I grew to love it. She has such an interesting personality and I found myself using some of her language in my thoughts after binge-reading this series. She makes a lot of mistakes in this series, some pretty embarrassing, but in all of her outrageousness, she felt like a real teenage girl. This series also had such an interesting cast of characters. There's Georgia's friends, the boys, her outrageous family, and her neighbors. I just loved seeing how all of the characters interacted with one another and how comfortable Georgia was with her friends. I also always looked forward to hearing about Libby's or Angus' shenanigans. Of course, Georgia did annoy me at times, namely in the romance department. There a few different guys Georgia is interested in during the course of the series. Early on in the series, I figured out who I wanted Georgia to end up with and Georgia's denial of her interest in him frustrated me. This did make me binge-read the series, though. The ending of this series did make me desire more because it ended just as it got to where I wanted it to be, but... it was still a great end to the series. IN CONCLUSION Overall, I really enjoyed reading this series. It was so much fun and it made me laugh on more than one occasion. When I picked up the first book I wasn't sure what to expect and I honestly just wanted to read a book where characters didn't die and everyone's lives were terrible. This book series succeeded in giving me feel-good reads and I can see myself picking up this series again when I need a feel-good book to read.

This book is incredibly difficult to review as a single piece of work, because it is so much part of a series (it is the final book in a ten book series, after all) that it does not work at all as a standalone book. I mean, not that it¿s not funny independently, but it would be like reading a book in a foreign language (there is a glossary at the back, but I don¿t think it can even begin to cover all the expressions you¿d need to be familiar with to fully understand Georgia and her friends). So if you haven¿t read any of the previous books, this is not the one you¿d want to pick up first.The overwhelming focus of the entire series is Georgia¿s quest for love. I definitely had my favorite boy out of all the ones Georgia was enamored with, and I enjoyed watching her stumble through all that those romantic entanglements brought, but there was so much more to the story than just that aspect of it. First, there¿s Georgia¿s family, who drives her mad and embarrasses her in unbelievable ways. But it¿s also very obvious that they love her, and they are just so real that I love it. Then, of course, there¿s the Ace Gang, Georgia¿s best pals in the world. Georgia and her friends are insane, but in the way that a lot of groups of teenage girls are insane when they¿re all together. Sometimes the things the Ace Gang do seem a little over the top, but when you think about, they actually aren¿t. At all. They¿re thinking about boys, or doing some crazy dance they made up, or passing notes in class bored out of their mind. In short, they¿re typical girls, for all the good and bad that brings with it. Georgia and her best friend Jas have a (usually) playfully tumultuous friendship, and while it got on my nerves at times throughout the series, I¿m glad that it reached somewhat of a balance in this book. Overall, Georgia¿s story is entertaining. There were times in this book, as well as in most of the others, that I was literally laughing out loud at the antics. Looking at each book by itself, it seems like not much really happens, but taken together the story works to bring Georgia what she¿s been looking for all along. This isn¿t really a shock, but getting to this ending is hilarious. Because of the fact that the series covers so little time (each book begins almost immediately after the previous one ends), I think it would be advantageous for readers to read the books as closely together as possible.

Guten tag! Mein got NO. I will miss KittyKat creativitositywise (try saying this word out loud) as this is the final oeuvre in the series. Where else will you find words like spangleferkel? And quotes like "Everyone is so bloody keen on me thinking all of a sudden. It's not what I do." hardcover p258. I am ver sad because Georgia is away laughing on a fast camel for the last time.

Ah, the joy and the sadness... joy because it's another Georgia Nicholson book, but sadness because it's the final book in the series. The "final confessions", if you will.As per the previous nine books in the series, I laughed, rolled my eyes at Georgia's antics, cheered on the cats, and rooted for Georgia to end up with the 'right' guy in the end (if you've read the series, you know who I'm talking about). Like the previous installments, the book delivered and did it well.What can I say? I'm an enormous fan of the series; I think they're hysterical and I plan to re-read the entire thing in the near future. I also find them to be excellent therapy on those 'feeling down' days (it's the guaranteed laughs, I think).The series ended well, in my opinion. The final page finished a bit abruptly, but I wonder if that's just my wishing for the books to continue on forever...Anyway, it was great and I'll definitely miss having a new Georgia book to look forward to each year... but we'll always have Croissant-a-gogo-land. I mean Paris. Er, or not.Erlack a pongoes.

I started reading this series when I was a senior in high school, so there's a bit of nostalgia in my reading.These are some of the funniest books that I have ever read and one of the only series that has made me laugh out loud in an embarrassing, what is that mad girl laughing at? sort of way.In this, the final installment, Georgia prepares for comedy gold as Merc-lurk-io (Mercutio) in the school's production of Rom and Jul, but is distracted by the call of the Hornmeister, Dave the Laugh, and the Pizza-a-gogo mating call of Massimo, the Italian Stallion Luurve God.---I was more than pleased with the way that the series ended. After so many years, I didn't want Georgia to end without a last laugh and I was not disappointed. I think now that the series is ended, I will try to go back and re-read it as a whole, though this will have to wait till I have gone through some of the TBR books. Though I enjoyed them all, I can now conclude that Angus, thongs, and full-frontal snogging (Book 1) and Startled by his furry shorts (Book 7) are my favorites.If I had to describe these books to someone who had never heard of them, I would say that they are a like slightly pervy, on-the-cusp of maturing (maturiosity) Bridget Jones's Diary type books. The humor is definitely what you would expect from a silly 15-year-old girl obsessed with boys and lippy, but if you like that sort of thing, you won't be disappointed.Gricel @

Georgia is back with the tenth book in this series. There wasn't much new happening. I think I only read books one and two a few years ago, and I knew almost all the characters in the book. Plus the same types of things were still happening - love triangles with the same people, same fights with her bestie. There were some funny parts to the book. But the ending was anticlimatic for the last book of the series.
FrenchMonkey on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
I liked the entire series; the first few are laugh-out-loud funny. This book is more of the same, still funny but starting to be same old. I didn't give this series wrap up five stars because I thought the ending was abrupt.

Oh, Georgia, how I will miss you. The laughs we had, the tears I've cried and the var, var amusant antics of the ace gang, the titches and, of course, Dave the Laugh. Our last volume of this clever series finds Georgia coming to terms with whether she will remain the girlfriend of Sex God, Masimo or perhaps be someone else's kittykat. During the onslaught of this dilemma Georgia is also practicing to be Merc-lurk-io in Stalac 14's interesting interpretation of Billy's Rom and Jul play. Like all of the books in this series I spent a lot of time giggling (Angus, you naughty, naughty kitty). There were also a couple parts that had me laughing absolutely hysterically to where I had to put the book down to breathe ("are these my basoomas I see before me?") Despite the simplistic diary style writing, Georgia's annoying attitude and her rather disturbing home life I have to say there is something worthwhile to be said about a book, or a series of books, that can make you laugh like that. Not to mention it being an interesting primer on all sorts of British slang.Where this book leaves you certainly doesn't feel like the end, although it is, but I don't blame the author for wanting to have a finale. I will miss Georgia and the gang.

Louise Rennison does it again! Georgia Nicholson is absolutely hilarious, you won't be able to put down the book, but you must make sure you understand British humor otherwise you might get a little confused. Unfortunately this is the final book in the series, but Georgia has been hilarious all the way through I will certainly miss her!

I luuuuurve this series so much, it¿s another one of those guilty pleasures of reading! The thing is, it¿s silly, it¿s crazy, and half of the time Georgia is just a dithering spaz, but that¿s what makes it so great! You can laugh at her, laugh with her, feel sorry for her, and then want to hit her right up side her head, all in one book.I first found out about the Georgia Nicolson books in 2002, when I was in 10th grade (hello, forever ago!). I can¿t remember if I checked it out from the school library, or the local library, but I saw it and checked it out from somewhere¿ and then when I finished it? I promptly went to check out the rest of the series that they had at the time (which comes out to .. well two books, apparently ha). I remember vividly sitting for my pre-FCAT test, and then trying so very hard not to laugh reading On the Bright Side, I¿m Now the Girlfriend of a Sex God because I would have been kicked out and made to redo it. Then again, that sounds like something that would happen to Georgia.. Hmm. Then? THEN, I started hording the books, I pre-ordered the third book, and the fourth, then the fifth, sixth, until I unfortunately fell out of reading for a bit. Even when I DID start reading again I didn¿t pick up with the Georgia Nicolson series again because I knew my mom wouldn¿t read it. She prefers her books to have fantastical creatures in it, not crazy self-adsorbed lead characters! Then, the trip to Indiana, and the only point in my life where I had WEEKS with nothing to do, so I started reading ¿ what would ya know?! They had the last three Georgia books (7-9), and so I read them, and I fell back in love with her and her world. Which led me to buy 7-9 & then pre-order #10: Are These My Basooma¿s I See Before Me? The point in telling you all of this, is that I want you to know my history with the books. To see that even though I went a few years without reading them, that when I finally caught up, I loved them JUST as much as I did before.Are These My Basooma¿s I See Before Me? is the last and final installment of the Georgia Nicolson series, and I¿m praying that Louise is just pulling our legs, because my life might very well be pointless with out! The last book is no let down from the others either, it¿s a fun, fast paced, book that follows Georgia around through all her snogging, red bottomosity as well as while she¿s on the rack of luuuuurve. I loved it, just as much as the others, the only downside is that ¿ like with the other books ¿ it implies that Georgia is the one `choosing¿ who she¿ll be with, but really it¿s the world evolving around her that does the choosing. I would have liked more evolution with her feelings and who she finally chooses or well, who finally chooses her. It¿s very obvious that she cares about him and he cares about her, but we don¿t see very much of it, just tiny bits here and there, and it¿s le crap. And I can¿t say anymore about the matter or I might ruin it.Bottom line, if you like fun books, with characters that are just as imperfect as the rest of us, but have a great humor about themselves, and quirky little bits of British information, then the Confessions of Georgia Nicolson are for you. I would guarantee that you¿d love them, but I can¿t. Sadly. So instead I will leave you with Georgia¿s departing words for us all:Snog on, snog on,With hope in your heart,And you¿ll never snog alone,You¿ll never snog¿ alone.

I started this series when i was in 9th grade. Something about the lime green cover among the many brown books caught my eye. I read the title and IMMEDIATELY asked WHAT KIND OF BOOK IS THIS? of course i had to read the first page, i choked on my gum! I read the first and second book in between my textbooks in class. Then i hooked my best friend on it too! We would brust out in laughter in biology because Georgia had poked her eye with a mascara wand. Almost cracked our ribs when we read libbys song. They are great all TEN of them i reread them every summer and it never gets old. I wish this series Hadnt ended. Louise Rennison please please please write at least one more of Georgia when shes older!!! This book is light Humorous and witty witty !! EVERYONE SHOULD READ IT. well... everyone with a sarcastic seriously twisted sense of humor. even remebering makes me laugh
