Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison

Now I just said Audrey, Wait! was hilarious but this is also hilarious! A different kind of hilarious.

Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging is the first of nine (so far) in Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series. It's basically Georgia's diary we are reading. This book starts right before Georgia is to return to school. She's 13/14 years old. She has a crazy cat named Angus and a little sister named Libby who may have peed somewhere in her room. At first I thought it would be a sweet read made for maybe junior high readers. But it was hilarious, just hilarious! I'm ready to read all the rest of the books now! Georgia and her friend Jas get into some hilarious situations along with their other friends and frienemies! I just adore this book!

This series takes place in the UK so there may be some words Americans are not familiar with. Georgia has provided us with a hilarious glossary in the back of the book. I think the difference in language allows for new laughs that we haven't seen overused in American books.

The books were originally released with different, cartoony covers. These new covers are so very beautiful in my opinion. The color palette and photography work together magically. Check out most of them here.

What series are you hoping to read more of this summer?

4/5 Stars
Purchased by myself


  1. You keep introducing me to new books I want to read - but I'm not entirely certain that's a good thing, considering the size of my TBR pile! AAHH!

    I don't know what series I want to read more of...I have Karleen Koen's historical fiction series, but it looks so daunting, I don't know if I'm going to start it anytime soon or just keep putting it off!

  2. I love this series! (As you already know.) You should definitely read the rest this summer!

  3. I don't know that I'll ever actually read Louise Rennison's books, but they catch my eye on the shelf. I was reading the glossary of one, I think the nunga-nunga one, where she defines them as a girl's breasty business. That made me laugh.

  4. skrishna- I know! My TBR pile is around 200 books right now... sigh.

    ambeen- I need to start buying them! I have no where to put them though!

    charley- LOL! I was wondering what that phrase meant! The new covers are beautiful aren't they!
