Are These My Basoomas I see Before Me? - Louise Rennison

It's 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?

Title: Are These My Basoomas I See Before Me?
Author: Lousie Rennison
Genre: Young Adult
Publisher: HarperTeen (An Imprint of HarperCollins Publishers)
My Rating: 4.5/5

I have loved reading this series, and am sad that this is the final "diary" of Georgia's. It is definitely a quick and easy read. Light, and hilarious. I have laughed out loud through all of the books in the series. We see all of the dilemma's that Georgia faces, what with her red bottomosity with Dave the Laugh; her relationship with Masimo; and her crazy antics with the ace gang. If you are in the mood for something that doesn't need a lot of thought, and are wanting something to cheer you up and get you laughing... this series is it. Much hilarity ensues when one reads what Georgia's parents, little sister Libby, cat Angus, the ace gang, Dave the Laugh, the Stiff Dylans, and of course Georgia, get up to!

The books in order:
1. Angus, thongs and full-frontal snogging
2. On the bright side, I'm now the girlfriend of a sex god
3. Knocked out by my nunga-nungas
4. Away laughing on a fast camel
5. Dancing in my nuddy-pants
6. Then he ate my boy entrancers
7. Startled by his furry shorts
8. Love is a many trousered thing
9. Stop in the name of pants!
10. Are these my basoomas I see before me?
