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

On the Bright Side, I’m Now the Girlfriend of a Sex God is the second book in the raucous British YA contemporary Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series by Louise Rennison.

For maximum hoots and haws, I recommend reading this series in order – which means starting with Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging.

If you haven’t yet read that first hysterical entry in the series – not only do I feel pity for you but I also warn you that this review may include potential spoilers of the first book.

You have been warned.

Just when Georgia has finally snagged Robbie the Sex God with her wily charms, her Mum announces that they will be joining her father in New Zealand – which may help to prevent Georgia’s Mum from embarking on an affair that she sees all too clearly – but is also very, very bad because she doesn’t want to leave the Sex God and go through snogging withdrawal.

Not to mention hot steam apparently shoots out of the ground in New Zealand. Not marvy.

With all of that combined with Angus, their cat of the Scottish Highlands that terrorizes the neighborhood so mightily that the police actually show up at their door, a toddler sister that still insists on hiding her used diapers at the end of Georgia’s bed and the risk that Robbie feels Georgia may be too young for him and therefore she must try to make him burn with jealousosity – well life is not peaches and cream, is it?

If you read my review of Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging, you can almost use just one word for my feelings regarding On the Bright Side, I’m Now the Girlfriend of a Sex God.

Ditto.

That’s right! Yet again, Georgia’s diary entries are non-stop comedy – awesome hilarity that will rattle your bones with laughter! I literally start giggling, harrumphing, etc., out loud when reading it – no matter where I am at the time.

Being an unapologetic British teen novel, it is crass and racy and does NOT present Georgia as a role model – though I don’t deny that she would be a riot as a friend!

Book two introduces some new characters – in particular Dave the Laugh – a romantic interest that I felt rather attached to as his matching wits with Georgia was highly enjoyable.

These are unabashedly fun, entertaining books that are great to fully embrace.

And don’t worry about what anyone thinks when they see the title of the book you’re reading – we’re bibliophiles and those other common folk don’t know what they’re missing!

Hee hee!

Real Live Boyfriends

Real Live Boyfriends is a YA contemporary novel by E. Lockhart, and the fourth novel in the Ruby Oliver quartet.

Here we are on the last day of “Ruby Oliver Week” and if you aren’t already reading these books – well, why not?

But I’m more than sure most of you are – and hopefully you’re all caught up, and therefore not at risk of being spoiled by my review of Real Live Boyfriends. You’ve been warned!

Ruby Oliver is beginning her senior year of high school with a real live boyfriend: Noel.

At least she thought she was.

After having spent the rest of junior year and the beginning of summer being fully in love (okay, they never actually said the word, but the vibes were strongly in that direction), Ruby is now confused.

Again.

When Noel went to visit his brother in New York for a while, almost every day they talked on the phone and exchanged funny emails. She never once felt insecure.

Until all of a sudden – communication stopped. Ruby would call and he wouldn’t answer. She’d leave a voice mai…

Interview with Joanna Philbin!

Today we have an extra special guest! Joanna Philbin, author of The Daughters series, is here to tell us about the fourth and (*sniff*) final book in the series - The Daughters Join the Party - as well as answer some other questions!

Welcome to the Bibliophile Support Group, Joanna! We're happy to have you!

So, for anybody who hasn't read the first three books in The Daughters series (read my reviews here: The Daughters, The Daughters Break the Rules, The Daughters Take the Stage) can you give everybody a general idea of what they're about?

Lizzie, Carina, and Hudson are best friends who are normal fourteen year-old girls in almost every way. Except for one: each girl has a parent who is incredibly famous. And her parent’s fame complicates her life in a big way. Lizzie’s mom is a supermodel, but Lizzie isn’t what most people would call “beautiful” – in fact, she’s what most people might call “unusual-looking.” How do you deal with having a supermodel mother when you don’t …

#YAStandsFor Daily Social Challenge... Day 5!

In my final day of participating in the I Read YA Week celebration (you can keep partying, it goes on through Monday!), I found myself presented with a new challenge of: Create a graphic showcasing an inspirational YA quote.

I'm not super tech savvy and I've never created a graphic before. But with just a little Google searching and a download of an app, I was able to create this:
