Review: Dancing in My Nuddy-Pants by Louise Rennison
Dancing in My Nuddy-Pants - Louise Rennison

Title: Dancing in My Nuddy-Pants
Author: Louise Rennison
Series: Confessions of Georgia Nicolson, 4
Format: ebook
Length: 293 pages (iPhone)
Rating: 3 stars

 

Synopsis: Georgia thought she had put her "red-bottomosity" to rest when she finally chose Robbie the Sex God over Dave the Laugh. Anyway, Dave the Laugh is now dating her friend Ellen (which didn't stop Georgia from snogging him at a party...)

But when Dave breaks up with Ellen and the Sex God is never around, Georgia doesn't know what to do! As always, in Georgia's life, nothing ever turns out as planned!

 

Favourite character: Jas & Rosie
Least favourite character: Georgia

 

Mini-review: I'm starting to struggle with Georgia. Maybe it's just my mood, I'm not sure, but she sure is annoying in this one.

For example, Robbie tells her he's going to New Zealand for a year so she makes out with Dave the Laugh, who she dumped, then more or less stole from one of her friends, Ellen.

(spoiler show)

Good job, Georgia.

Also, at this point in the series it's mostly just kissing, which I'm not going to lie is making a bit nervous about future books.

Those People
Those People - Louise Candlish

We've all experienced, either directly or indirectly, those neighbors. The ones who don't fit in with the rest of the neighborhood. Maybe they throw too many loud parties, or don't take care of their lawns, or take up too many parking spaces on the street - whatever the reason, they are a source of hostility to their neighbors. Those People throws in all and sundry to the new residents on Lowland Way to create plenty of hostility for the rest of the street - something that went over the top for me. Darren and Jodie were everything quiet little streets don't want in a neighbor and then some, so much so that they were almost caricature-like. But that's okay, we aren't really supposed to like them. In fact, I'm not sure that we're meant to like any of this story's characters. I certainly didn't. In the end, I wasn't sure if anyone was really meant to be the good guy. However, I could've been okay with that, and here I'll add that I did like the format for this one. It bounces between characters as we get what's going on now along with what led up to it. The problem is that the story is way too slow and the twists just aren't that twisty. I felt like the author was so focused on showing all the flaws in these characters that she forgot to leave any surprises when it was time for those twists. Most people would never consider going to the extreme lengths that these did, but considering what we're told about them from the beginning, I wasn't at all surprised with the way it played out in the end. Maybe it's just me, or maybe I expected too much, but I spent most of this book wanting someone, any one of these characters, to really surprise me and it just didn't happen.

Review: Knocked Out By My Nunga-Nungas by Louise Rennison
Knocked Out by My Nunga-Nungas - Louise Rennison

Title: Knocked Out By My Nunga-Nungas
Author: Louise Rennison
Series: Confessions of Georgia Nicolson, 3
Format: ebook
Length: N/A
Rating: 3 stars

 

Synopsis: Georgia Nicolson is now the girlfriend of the Sex God (aka Robbie), and things are wonderful. Except her loony parents are dragging her off to Och Aye land (aka Scotland), and the Sex God's band's chance at a record contract has left her something of a "pop widow."

Then up rears temptation in the form of old flame Dave the Laugh. Is Georgia about to become a shameless vixen?

 

Favourite character: Jas
Least favourite character: N/A

 

Mini-review: Now that I realize that you have to read this series with a certain mind set, its great. I originally gave it one star, and while I can see why, I enjoyed it more this time around. Georgia is a real piece of work in this one, though.

At the end of the book she more or less decides to date both Robbie and Dave. Good job, Georgia, you're 14 and already cheating.

(spoiler show)

Also, there's so much kissing that I felt confused, being someone who hasn't had her first kiss yet.

 

Fan Cast:

Georgia - Angourie Rice

Jas - Esme Creed-Miles

Robbie - Asa Butterfield

Dave the Laugh - Louis Hynes

Tom - Isaac Hempstead-Wright

Mutti - Anna Maxwell Martin

Vati - Tristan Sturrock

Rosie - Thomasin McKenzie

Sven - Louis Hofmann

Ellen - Hattie Gotobed

"Every minute without the Sex God feels sixty seconds long."

 

I can't...
