Title: Are These My Basoomas I See Before Me? Confessions of Georgia Nicholson - Book 10
Author: Louise Rennison
Publisher: HarperTeen, 320 Pages (October 6th 2009)
From: Amazon

Synopsis: A bit early to get swoony knickers but I have got them on.

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?

Review: 4 Stars - Sadly, Are These My Basoomas I See Before Me? Is the 10th and last installment of the Georgia Nicholson diaries. I remember reading the first one and couldn't wait to get the next. Each book was extremely funny that I often had tears in my eyes from laughing so hard.

The characters all work great together and if you took one away you'd feel like one was missing. Lousie Renninson writes some great comedy with a funky teenage voice that makes Georgia an extremely quirky girl from start to finish. She's a Loon with a capital "L".

The various things that Georgia goes through throughout the whole series are crazy and wacky but somehow all fit together nicely. Her family, friends (The Ace Gang & Dave the Laugh) and various boyfriends (Robbie & Masimo) somehow understand her when she's at her nuttiest, and trust me it's pretty much all the time. Rennison has worked some magic to create such layers of crazy that there's not a chance each reader wont find not only something to love but find it laughing out loud along ride there.

With the end of this book and series I was happy where things left off. I was grinning with which boy she finally picked, and no I'm not giving anything away. Go read the books to find out! I just wish that it wasn't the end. Here's hoping that maybe we'll get some Georgia stories from when she's older to see where her life ended up? I for one would love that idea.

If you haven't read this series... start it soon. It's one that I think everyone should read. Especially if you fancy a good laugh and who want to take a visit to the Cake Shop of Luuuurve! Happy reading if it's the first or third time you've read this series. I for one will be reading this again sometime soon, enjoy.

  1. I use to read Georgia. I love her but I don't know for some reason I lost touch with her. I should probably go back and get reacquainted with her. I think the last one I read was the one with the Nunga Nunga's at the end hmmm...

    This is the last installment? awww... how sad.

    Nice review Lisa!

  2. It's very sad that this is the last book. I'll miss Georgia that's for sure. She is/was such a laugh.

    You should totally go back and read then all straight through to this last one :o)

    Thanks Pat!

  3. Have u seen the movie? I'm watching it right now at Nick :)

  4. Yeah, I've seen it. It's cute. Funny... where are you watching it? Is it on TV? Goes to look at cable guide.

    What do you think of the movie so far?
