Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging

Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging (Confessions of Georgia Nicolson, #1)Goodreads Synopsis:    There are six things very wrong with my life:

1. I have one of those under-the-skin spots that will never come to a head but lurk in a red way for the next two years.

2. It is on my nose

3. I have a three-year-old sister who may have peed somewhere in my room.

4. In fourteen days the summer hols will be over and then it will be back to Stalag 14 and Oberfuhrer Frau Simpson and her bunch of sadistic teachers.

5. I am very ugly and need to go into an ugly home.

6. I went to a party dressed as a stuffed olive.
In this wildly funny journal of a year in the life of Georgia Nicolson, British author Louise Rennison has perfectly captured the soaring joys and bottomless angst of being a teenager. In the spirit of Bridget Jones's Diary, this fresh, irreverent, and simply hilarious book will leave you laughing out loud. As Georgia would say, it's "Fabbity fab fab!"
My Thoughts:
-    I had high hopes for this book. I was hoping it would be hilarious and a quick fun read. It was quick, but not fun. It was like Princess Diaries all over again, but worse.
-    I did laugh at first, but Georgia quickly became VERY annoying. She was really dumb, painfully dumb. She was also really whiny and superficial. I just couldn't take it.
-    The rest of the characters weren't any better.
-    I take back the quick remark. I wanted to finish the book, so I drudged through the last half. Ugh!
