On the Bright Side, I'm Now the Girlfriend of a Sex God

Availability: Ready to download

You don't have to be a teenager to appreciate the humorous and often self-absorbed ravings found in 14-year-old Georgia Nicolson's diary, but it certainly helps. Now fans of Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging -- Georgia's first set of hilarious musings on life -- can get another peek into the mind of this wryly inquisitive English lass in the appealing sequel: On the You don't have to be a teenager to appreciate the humorous and often self-absorbed ravings found in 14-year-old Georgia Nicolson's diary, but it certainly helps. Now fans of Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging -- Georgia's first set of hilarious musings on life -- can get another peek into the mind of this wryly inquisitive English lass in the appealing sequel: On the Bright Side, I'm Now the Girlfriend of a Sex God. As the title implies, Georgia has snagged herself a sex god in the form of Robbie, the boy of her dreams. Now that they've indulged in a bit of "full-frontal snogging," Georgia turns her attention to advancing the relationship. But things quickly go wrong when she learns that her father's new job may necessitate a move to New Zealand. Crestfallen, Georgia feels her life might as well be over. Then, miraculously, the dreaded move is cancelled, and things seem to be getting better -- at least until 17-year-old Robbie decides to break up with Georgia because he's bothered by the difference in their ages. Borrowing freely from her mum's closet and advice books, even as she's steadfastly discounting everything her mum says, a crushed but determined Georgia comes up with a scheme to win Robbie back. As usual, nothing goes as planned, and life is further complicated by Georgia's temperamental cat, Angus (who's having a few amorous leanings of his own), and her baby sister, Libby, whose fascination with (and lack of control over) her bodily functions leads to several intriguing mishaps. Of course, there are other disasters, too: a quick-tan lotion that turns Georgia's legs orange, a run-in with the aptly named Bummer sisters, and friends who insist on focusing on their own problems from time to time. Who knew the angst of adolescence could be so much fun? This Georgia's-eye view of teenage life is wonderfully egocentric and side-splittingly funny. And despite the occasional language barrier (a glossary of terms is provided in the back of the book), Georgia's thoughts and experiences will prove universally recognizable to anyone who is, or has ever been, a teenager. --Beth Amos

    As seen on The Readventurer The only thing I am going to say here is that Dave the Laugh is the best boyfriend ever. I have no idea why, for so long, I thought the Sex God Robbie was a good choice for Georgia. Dave is a total dream boat... ...and yes, I know I am twice his age.

I have no idea why, for so long, I thought the Sex God Robbie was a good choice for Georgia. Dave is a total dream boat... ...and yes, I know I am twice his age. This snippet is for my present and future entertainment: 8:35 pm You can make a sort of nose sling out of pair of knickers [panties:]! Like a sort of antigravity device. You put a leg hole over each ear and the middley bit supports your nose. It's quite comfy. I'm not saying that it looks very glamorous. I'm just saying it's comfy. 8:40 pm It's not something I would wear outside of the privacy of my own bedroom. 8:45 pm It's a good view from my windowsill. I can see Mr. Next Door with his stupid poodles. He's all happy now that Angus has gone off poodle baiting in favor of the Burmese sex kitten. 8:46 pm Oh hello, here comes Mark, my ex, the breast fondler. At this rate he will be the one and only fondler. I will die unfondled. He must be coming home from footie practice. I don't know how I could ever have thought about snogging him; he wears extremely tragic trousers. He is looking up at my window. He has seen me. He's stopped walking and is looking up at my window. Staring at me. Well, you know what they say - once a boy magnet always a boy magnet. I'm just going to stare back in a really cool way. All right, Mr. Big Gob, Mr. Dumper. I might be the dumpee but you still can't take your eyes away from me though, can you??? I still fascinate him. He's just looking up at me. Just staring and staring. Mesmerized by me. 8:50 pm Oh my god! I am still wearing my nose hammock made out of knickers. 8:56 pm Mark will tell all his mates.

    I think I liked the second book even more than the first one in the series, because Dave the Laugh is my favorite character. I love Georgia's confusion as to whether it's more important to have a boyfriend who makes you go jelloid or one who makes you laugh. Really enjoying this re-read of the series. Bring on the next one!

    Picture, if you will, Bridget Jones as a 14 yr. old girl. She has a crush on the cute musician next door, has a few close girlfriends who help her with her schemes and a quirky family which includes a three year old sister who sometimes terrorizes her. Very cute series written in diary form. Relaxing, entertaining and makes me thrilled to not only have me out of my teen years, but my kids, too. 😊

    The second instalment. Still as witty and easy to flick through as the first. They're being good to me; distracting me from all the revision I should be doing.

    This book was every bit as fun as I expected it to be. This series is just really cute, funny and light-hearted. Georgia is simply hilarious and I never tire of her dramatic reactions. Her witty diary entries are infectious and I find them impossible to look away from. This installment did drag at parts but it was mostly as entertaining and amusing as the first. I'm certainly looking forward to see what else is in store for Georgia.

    Still, I refuse to be upset. I will remain calm beneath my egg and olive oil face mask. Hilarious. Georgia Nicolson is an icon. Although not a lot happens in this book (and I preferred the first one), it’s really funny and witty. Don’t take this book too seriously.

I can’t believe Jas. She is dead to me. Like in the Bible, when somebody goes off and becomes a prostitute or something. She is now the girl who has no name. “It’s me, Jas.” “Oh...What do YOU want?” “I’ve just called to see how you are.” I said, “Dead actually, I died a few hours ago. Goodbye.” Also thanks to Holly for recommending this book series ☀️

I admire honesty.” So, once again Georgia Nicolson made laugh a lot with her occurences. I swear that I would ditch this book if it wasn't for all the stupid and funny things she said, because the story perse is boring. “She got up and started making her hair have more bouncability with the air brush thing again. I waited until she had got it just right (in her opinion); then I hit her over the head with a pillow. She started to say, "Look, this is not funn-" but before she could finish I hit her over the head again with the pillow. And every time she tried to talk I did it again. She got all red-faced, which in Jas's case is very red indeed. It made me feel much better. Violence may be the answer to the world's problems. I may write to the Dalai Lama and suggest he tries my new approach.” She is a BULLY! Everything is against Jas, and poor her that I don't know how they still friends. Georgia gives the most horrible tips and advices. Jas has like broke up twice with her boyfriends thanks to Georgia. Thank God that Jas is not that dumb and she comes back to him, because they are a really sweet couple. Another sweet couple is Sven and Rosie. Sven made laugh every time he apperead, because no one ever understands what he is saying. “Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on where you were sitting) Libby let off the smelliest, loudest fart known to humanity. It came out of her bum-oley with such force that she lifted off my knee - like a hovercraft. Even she looked surprised by what had come out of her.” I'm trying to understand if Georgia's sister, Liberty aka Libbs, has a problem because she does the most random and weird things. I don't remember my sister or me doing those things. Plus her mother is always ignoring her like she doesn't care, i hate it. “Boys are like elastic bands... Boys are different from girls. Girls like to be cozy all the time but boys don't. First of all, they like to get all close to you like a coiled-up rubber band, but after a while, they get fed up with being too coiled and need to stretch away to their full stretchiness. Then, after a bit of on-their-own strategy, they ping back to be close to you.” I'm trying to understand Georgia's way, I do, but I can't. Is she is so in love with Robbie, why is she so stupid in front of him. I guess that she turns more than jelly thanks to love? Sacré Bleu! Why I'm still reading this? I don't know. Will I keep reading it? Sí.

    Oh, what’s the matter with that Georgia! How could she do that to the poor kid? Dave the Laugh’s the perfect guy… “Dave phoned. He said, ‘I just called to say I really liked you. Night night.’” I think that’s really cute. How could she not fall in love? Oh, I don’t know… but there’s definitely something off with that “Sex God” of hers. When I think about the two of them, that jailbait infatuation, it congers up an image of Gidget and the Kahuna. ;) But it’ll probably end the same way with Gidget Oh, what’s the matter with that Georgia!

But it’ll be fun to see how it’ll all play out. But like in Angus, there are quite a few priceless gem moments: “I hope I am not being driven to the brink of madness by grief. They say that some people never get over things, like whatshername, Kathy Thing. The one who wandered over the moors at night yelling, ‘Heathcliffe, Heathcliffe, it’s me a-Kathy come home again.’” “I’ve spent so much time in bed I’ll probably start growing a long white beard soon, like Rip van Thing.” “I could be like a sad old sadsack or I could gird my loins and be like in that song. The one where you have to search for the hero within yourself. Jas was waiting for me at the bus stop. She said, ‘Why are you walking in that stiff way?’ ‘I’m girding my loins.’ ‘Well, it looks painful, like you’ve got a stick up your bottom.’”

    What I like most about the Georgia Nicolson series is that it doesn’t try to be posh. It strives for absurdosity and succeeds. This installment picked up where Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging left off, with Georgia losing the SG and protesting a move to Kiwi-a-gogo Land (a.k.a. New Zealand). From there, it only gets crazier: cat mating, Elastic Band theory, Dr. George Clooney, the German language, a wheelbarrow, etc. Georgia is like the friend you want to dope slap, but just shake your h What I like most about the Georgia Nicolson series is that it doesn’t try to be posh.

She’s going to do mad things no matter what. That’s why glimpses of her nicer side are so surprising. Deep down beneath the stupidity and shallowness and mascara is a good person. Deep, deep down. Anyway, is it wrong that I dislike the SG and think Georgia should beg Dave the Laugh (a.k.a. best boyfriend EVER) to take her back? Nein? Thought so.

    Five Stars for Nostalgia. Would also highly recommend the audiobook for this series as it's narrated by the author and is hilarious! Something I discovered while rereading this - Robbie's a bit of a Dick Something that's still true after rereading this - Dave's a sweetheart

    1.5 STARS The same rating as the first book in the series! I really don't think these books have aged very well, but also there isn't any character development. It's hard to be objective having seen the movie (which spans several books), but Georgia seems to be making the same decisions over and over, with no negative consequences, and no sign of growth. I understand that she's 14/15, but it's rather repetitive.

    These books are just too much for me. Georgia is over the top ridiculous and instead of finding it funny, I think it's annoying. I'm definitely not the target audience for these books and I'm sure a 14 year old would like the characters and crazy story more. I completely understand Robbie breaking up with Georgia, especially because I don't think an almost 18 year old should date a 14 year old. I liked Dave better for Georgia, he seemed to find her funny and care about her and she just used him These books are just too much for me.

    This was given to me by a friend. I actually read the first book by this author, which I thought was Bridget Jones but with teenage angst. The best character was Angus the wild cat. The humor was there but wore thin pretty quickly. The best thing about this was the title, IMO.

The best thing about this was the title, IMO. Amazon Editorial Review: Fourteen-year-old Georgia Nicolson is back in British author Louise Rennison's irreverent, laugh-out-loud sequel to the Michael L. Printz Honor Book Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging. Written in diary form, these truly hilarious books chronicle the often minute-by-minute, very dramatic, and significant flip-flops of a teenager's psyche. 7:18 p.m. My eyes are all swollen up like mice eyes from crying. Even my nose is swollen. It's not small at the best of times, but now it looks like I've got three cheeks. Marvelous. Thank you, God. 9:00 p.m. I'll never get over this. 9:10 p.m. Time goes very slowly when you're suicidal. What tragedy has her so distraught? Her parents have told her she's moving to New Zealand just when she's managed to snog (kiss--look it up in the glossary) the SG (Sex God, a.k.a Robbie). This is of course not the only source of drama in Georgia's eventful life. Her half Scottish wildcat, Angus, who is the size of a small Labrador, herds the poodles next door and terrorizes the neighborhood. Her little sister, Libby, who is slightly mad, stores her "pooey knickers" and her scuba-diving Barbie doll in Georgia's bed. Her mother (from whom she inherited her orangutan eyebrow gene and possibly her "gigantic basoomas") is clearly inhabiting Earth solely to make her life miserable, and even her best friend Jas is "half girl, half turnip." Despite the fact that she's spared from going to "Kiwi-a-gogo land," things don't get much better for Georgia. She's suspended for a childish prank right before her dad returns from New Zealand, she falls in love with the SG who dumps her for being too young, and Dave, the "red-herring" boyfriend she's using to make the SG jealous calls her a "heartless whatsit." And, she continues, "the spot on my bum is probably a boil. I wonder what Buddha would do now?" Rennison's comedic timing is brilliant. Adolescent angst ("I hope I am not driven to the brink of madness by grief") vanishes less than an hour later ("Angus can fetch sticks!!!") and sometimes even sooner. (Warning: Do not read this book while riding a train or bus unless you don't care what people think of intermittent explosive laughter. Seriously.) (Ages 12 and older) --Karin Snelson

    I was in the library looking for a book to read, and I came across this one that I had actually failed at finding before. Georgia Nicolson comes back as funny as ever, she is now the girlfriend of Robbie (who she calls Sex God) and she thinks of nothing but snogging him. When he dumps her for being "too young" she tries to finds a way to get him back. There were many quotes that I love in the book, but one of my favourites was "What is there to laugh at?

I loved how the author wrote in first-person, she did a great job writing down the thoughts of a 14 year old. It was fun reading the bits she wrote in French and in German also. I recommend this book to girls in need of a laugh, and who are experiencing boy problems. This book doesn't offer a good solution to those problems, but it sure lets you laugh non-stop about them.

    3.5 stars Georgia is quite literally the description of a self-centred, over-dramatic teenager, who only wants all the attention on her and no one else, which is pretty annoying but simply accurate on how most of the young teenagers are.

Even if Georgia's behaviour it's kinda annoying sometimes. Also Libby, Georgia's baby sister, I find incredibly annoying. She is so disgusting and irritating hahaha I don't even know how to put it in words. Either way, I do enjoy reading this series and as they are super quick reads, I'm sure I'll be finishing this series off before I know it!

    Funny as ever! Definitely a great throwback! Also I just love Dave the Laugh. This is the book my mum caught me reading under the covers hiding it from her because I was the most awkward child ever. I then turned myself in and told her “I didn’t even want to read it! I didn’t know it was too old for me!” Or something like that. And then I freely handed over the book just to avoid awkwardness with her.

After that if there was anything else I probably didn’t want my mum to see me reading I was even more super sleuth about it. I legitimately thought I was some kind of spy kid growing up.

    Actual rating: 1.5 stars Initial thoughts: My intention was to read all the books in the series. I don't think that's gonna happen after all. The first book was half-way entertaining. This second one was tiresome to read. There were some amusing moments but on the whole it wasn't all that funny. Georgia is beyond self-absorbed. Sure, it's her diary and she's 14 but she shows no respect for anyone in her life, not even her best friend.

Georgia is beyond self-absorbed. Sure, it's her diary and she's 14 but she shows no respect for anyone in her life, not even her best friend. In fact, she displays no true affection for her best friend at all. She's incredibly rude to people around her in the name of humour. I'm not buying it. The prose annoyed me too with all these made up words and repetitions. The only strength I found was the consistency of Georgia's character, which I didn't even like reading anymore.

I grew up reading On the Bright Side, I'm Now the Girlfriend of a Sex God and was confused when my paperback copy had the following title I'll explain in a play-by-play between my parents and I on a weekend trip: Me: "Mom, did you move my book off the table?" Mom: "I don't know, what's it called?" Me, quietly: "It's OK, I'm Wearing Really Big Knickers." Mom: "What?" Me, louder but faster: "It'sOKI'mWearingRea Some of the books in this series have different titles between the original and US versions.
