Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison

Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison Is there a series that you keep looking at on the library shelves, meaning to read, and putting off for fear of committing to a multi-book series? For me, that series is the Confessions of Georgia Nicolson, a hilarious look at daily life in England, through the eyes of 14-year-old Georgia. The novel, begins just as Georgia is getting ready to go back to school, and her diary entries are full of typical teenage worries, boys, friends, make-up, the size of her nose, and the antics of her crazy family (including her cat, Angus, who is part Scottish-wildcat, and likes to attack the poodle next door). And then, a few days before the start of school, she meets Robbie (aka the Sex God).... Rennison has somehow managed to capture that teenage voice perfectly. Georgia's diary reads like it could be any teenage girl's diary, lots of very short entries, random ramblings, and very quick mood changes (with plenty of UK slang thrown in). I wish these books had been around when I was 13 or 14* If you like Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging, check out:
  • The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot (also in diary-format, and hilarious)
  • The Boyfriend List by E. Lockhart (another girl's tale of boys and crazy family members)
  • Older readers might also enjoy the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich (speaking of crazy family members...)
Other blog reviews: Book Adorer Blogging for a Good Book *Actually, I just checked the publication date... I was 15 when they were published, but by then, I was reading all that silly adult fiction stuff, for some reason.
edited to add: And there's going to be a movie
