First of all, can I just point out that if you’re new here, this book isn’t what you’re probably imagining it to be. Hear me out!
“Honestly, what planet do these people live on? And why isn’t it farther away?”
Synopsis from Goodreads: Georgia Nicolson has started dating the Sex God (aka Robbie). So life should be perfect . . . except in Georgia’s life, nothing is ever perfect. Her cat, Angus (the size of a small Labrador), is terrorizing the neighborhood. Her sister, Libby (who is slightly mad), hides her pooey knickers at the bottom of Georgia’s bed. Then the Sex God breaks it off because she’s too young. It’s time for a plan. It’s time for a Red Herring. It’s time for Georgia to become a “heartless boy magnet!”
Feelings: Just like the first book in this series, I found the writing and Georgia’s voice to be the best part. It’s such an easy story to read; partly because it’s in diary format, but partly becauseI just want to stay with Georgia and find out more.
Issues: I started to actually dislike Georgia sometimes. She became more entitled in this story and started looking down her nose at and talking down to almost everyone. She’s not a very good friend to Jas, especially, always telling her to stop talking and complaining when she’s just being herself. That got old really quickly.
I felt like this book ended the same way as the first. We think Georgia’s finally getting her way and then BOOM…door slammed in her face. It just felt like same-old-same-old.
Characters: Georgia definitely shows her heartless side in this book. Not only does she string Dave the Laugh along (unfairly…he seems great), but poor Jas can’t catch a break from her “best friend”. I think Dave the Laugh is part of why I liked this book more than the first one. He’s a much better “love interest” character for Georgia than Robbie ever was. I’m rooting for you, Dave!
As immature as Georgia is (most of the time), she IS starting to grow up juuust a little bit. One of my favorite parts in this book is when she’s trying to decide between these two boys. Is it more important for a guy to make you laugh or for him to make you feel “jelloid”? One of life’s biggest questions, as we all know. Ha! I also like that we’re still going along for the journey that is Tennager-hood with Georgia. Like wearing knickers on your head. And trying ways to shrink body parts you wish were smaller.
Final thoughts: I’m hoping that the third book in this series is different from the first two. We’re just getting started, getting used to these characters and their everyday problems. So I hope that moving forward, it gets a little more unpredictable. I’ll definitely keep reading and again would recommend this book to anyway looking for a light-hearted easy read.
