Are These My Basoomas I See Before Me? (Confessions of Georgia Nicolson) by Louise Rennison

I’ve been reading these books off and on over the past few years. They’re silly, young adult, bordering on inappropriate and very juvenile. In other words, perfect for me some days! Okay, maybe most days. I was sad to see that the series was coming to an end, but once I started this one I realized that it was probably time. There’s only so many situations that Georgia could get herself into and it was becoming a little repetitive. By the middle of the book, I knew it was definitely time to retire the series.

I will admit that I was bit confused through much of it. It really didn’t play out how I imagined it would and it seemed to be steaming along at the same old normal pace with little to no “wrap up” stuff going on… and then it just kind of ended. Very abruptly.

Having said that, it was overall a fitting end to the Georgia saga and it’s a great series. I enjoyed it, just felt a little disconnected from this one.

Recommended, of course, for die-hard Georgia Nicolson fans.

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?
