    Georgia makes me laugh

    Okay, so On the Bright Side, I'm Now the Girlfriend of a Sex God picks up almost exactly where Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging left off (two days later to be specific). As Georgia continues her diary, she is very disillusioned by the prospect of going to visit her father in New Zealand on "the other (useless) side of the universe" instead of having time to spend (snogging) with Robbie--the Sex God.

    Like the first book in this series, this one basically just follows a few months in Georgia's life. Mayhem continues to follow Georgia as she and her friend devise new Beret-wearing methods at school among other kinds of mischief. This includes some chaos on the hockey field (the first book featured a rather disastrous tennis match). Rennison writes Georgia as a bit of a spaz--always thinking about herself and her appearance, heaping scorn upon Robbie's more studious ex--so it's nice to see her being athletic without really trying and without any ulterior motive.

    Meanwhile, Georgia also has to figure out how to get back in Robbie's good graces when he once again decides that she is too young for him. Part of her plan? Maturiosity and Glaceriosity. Yes.

    Basically anything funny that came up in the first book has been revisited in this one. A personal favorite: Georgia's continued bewilderment when faced with the phrase "see you later." (Does it mean "see you later" or something else? No one knows.) There are a lot of developments in this volume in terms of inter-character relations (Georgia, her friends, Robbie, and so on). But there isn't as much intra-character development. Again. By the end of the book, Georgia does have some new quandaries to think about (is it a problem that the SG doesn't make her laugh for instance), but it's still too early to tell if her new introspection will lead to a bit of enlightenment.

    By the time I read this book (in a day), I was basically over my qualms about liking Georgia but feeling like I shouldn't. The plots are simple and fun, Georgia makes me laugh. It's fine.

    That said, I have noticed that, like a few other laugh-out-loud funny books for teens, this one gets a lot of the humor from Georgia having kind of low self-esteem. A running theme in both books is Georgia bemoaning her ugliness as a result of her large nose. It doesn't really impact the story, or send any message about beauty ideals or anything, I just wish Georgia could be a little more sure of herself. All of her friends (and snogging partners) seem to indicate that people think Georgia is pretty cool. I wish that she would figure that out as well. Maybe in the next book . . .

    What a LAUGH!

    this book made me laugh so hard i had to go to the restroom repeatedly while reading it! It is one of the most enjoyable humorous books I have ever read! Though it lacks depth and emotion, it has real heart and gut bursting laughter! The situations georgia sets herself in are unbelievably hilarious! You will definitely love this book if you are in for a great time and a giant laugh.

    On the Bright Side

    I hereby admit that I am a fan-girl of Georgia Nicolson.

    Once again, Georgia did not disappoint. This second book in Louise Rennison's all too funny series about young Georgia Nicolson - British teenager extraordinaire - was perfect. It picks up just after she has discovered that Vati (her father) will be moving her family to Kiwi-a-gogo Land (New Zealand) and thus her life is effectually over. After snagging (and snogging) the Sex God (aka Robbie) in the previous book, Georgia is still up to her old tricks - figuring out new ways to annoy her teachers, avoiding Wet Lindsay, and trying to figure out exactly what a boy means by "I'll see you later."? I really don't know how she gets into the messes she does but I can't help but enjoy every minute of her crazy life.

    Georgia's life is detailed in irreverent diary entries where she honestly lays down the good, the bad, and the ugly of teendom without ever becoming preachy or campy. She is completely self-centered but still entirely lovable in the way only teenagers can be. I love the scrapes she gets into and I love, love how she tries to explain new concepts to her friends. I about split my shorts laughing when she tried to explain to the Ace gang how Dave the Laugh will become her Red Herring. Fabbity fab fab.

    All I can say is Louise Rennison should be very careful to not be drinking anything while she comes up with some of the stuff Georgia gets herself into. I know from sad experience it shouldn't be attempted.

    GREAT LAUGHS!

    Georgia Nicolson does not fail to make me laugh very hard! She's absolutely insane. And I love it when she says all these stupid things when trying to talk to her sex god of a boyfriend. But disaster lurks!

    perfection

    This was THE funniest book of all time. I love books that make me laugh litterally out loud. It has a great combination of funnyness ( --is that a word??) and happiness and conflict. It was just SO good, that it made me sad when I finished it.

    wonderfully hilarious

    Louise Rennison's On the Bright Side, I'm now the Girlfriend of a Sex God is terribly funny and impossible to put down. 14-year-old Georgia Nicolson is faced with the ultimate problem: getting the SG (Robbie the Sex God) back. He breaks up with her through a letter saying that she is too young for him. Robbie being 17 almost 18 and Georgia a mere 14. She decides to use the new-found elastic band theory (give him some space, act like you don¿t care, and get a new boyfriend to make him jealous) to try and get the SG back. Georgia gets a new boyfriend whom she calls Dave the Laugh and discovers something I don¿t think she had expected. This book is a wonderful insight to conflicts of teenage life through Georgia Nicolson¿s eyes. On the Bright Side, I¿m now the Girlfriend of a Sex God moves along from the very first page and it¿s impossible to stop laughing until the last one.

    Even Better

    Surprisingly, this book was a lot better thatn the original one, which I think, is pretty tuff to beat. Georgia Nicolson continues her strive to be the most popular girl in school with her witty remarks to everything. So far, this series has convinced me to begin writing in a journal, which I now take part in almost everyday.

    Love Bites

    Georgia screamed at the top of her lungs, ¿I¿m not moving I refuse to!¿ The book by Louise Rennison, On the bright side I¿m now the girlfriend of a sex god is very well written. The setting of this book takes place in a very wealthy city somewhere in Europe. Some of the main characters in this book are Georgia, Jas, Georgia¿s mom and dad, Libby (Georgia¿s sister), Robbie (aka the Sex God), and Dave. This book is mainly about Georgia trying to get the SG back. She comes up with many different plans. Such as, what she calls the ¿ Elastic Band Strategy.¿ She also has some problems with the ¿Bummer Twins,¿ and ¿Wet Lindsay.¿ It¿s all about her getting the SG back, and she¿s willing to do anything to get have him again. This book is very, very funny! Especially with the remarks that Georgia says and thinks about her friends, and family. The funniest thing that she said in my opinion was when Libby walked up and gave Georgia a wet kiss. Right after she kissed her (Georgia was pretending to be asleep at the time) and she ¿woke up¿ and screamed, ¿What the heck was that for? Do you know anyone else who has a sister who is obsessed with kissing and licking peoples noses!¿ Georgia says many more funny things throughout this book it makes the book even more enjoyable. The authors writing style that helps the way the story flows. Especially her ways to slip little funny lines into a really serious part. The author makes Georgia relate to the reader in funny, but more serious ways as well. I would recommend this book to teenagers who like funny, flirty, loving, and hate all combined in one books. This book is a diary of a young teenagers life, and it can relate to all girl teens in at least one way. I think that Georgia will end up with Dave eventually, and the SG will want her back. The character Georgia reminds me of my friend Lindsey because she is so funny, and Lindsey is too! Any girl teenager who loves funny stories would love this Diary of a young teen like them.

    A very funny and witty book for teens

    This book is one that everybody should find time to read. It's about a girl, Georgia Nicolson, 14 years old, who goes through what every 14-year-old girl normally goes through. She deals with boy troubles, friendship problems, and even family problems. The whole story is told through Georgia's very own diary entries which makes it even funnier to read. From the manner in which she talks to the way that she describes herself, there isn't one part of the book that wasn't the least bit humorous. The events that take place are so realistic that I felt as though I personally got to know Georgia Nicolson as one of my best friends. That is why I reccomend this book to anybody who enjoys laughing, having a fun time reading, and making a new best friend named Georgia Nicolson.

    Double Cool with Knobs

    This series is FANTASTIC so far! I've read the first two books and this one was an awesome follow-up to the first. Georgia has the best sense of humor in the world and there's never any boring spots. This is definately a book for someone who longs for MANY laughs.
