Georgia Nicolson has a great life. She has a sexy boyfriend, great friends, and a pretty active social life.

Things took an abrupt halt, however, when her beau, Masimo, went off in a huff after the school dance, because Dave the Laugh decided to get into a fight with him over Georgia. Two boys fighting over you - who could ask for anything more?

Now, both boys aren't talking to her and Masimo won't return any of her phone calls. To make matters worse, Wet Lindsay, the school's popular mean girl, is rubbing it in her face that she's still with Georgia's first crush, Robbie. Will Georgia's love life straighten out or is she doomed for spinsterville already?

A humorous conclusion to this popular young adult series. It's entertaining and readers will enjoy following Georgia's love and social life. The characters are easy to relate to and they keep the book's pace up well.

It is recommended, however, that you read the previous books in order to understand the unique way Georgia talks and expresses herself.

Sadly, the Georgia Nicolson series has come to an end. But at least it ends on a high note, with lots of laughs and an ending that made me happy. This book is just as hilarious as the ones before it! :)

Nooo Georgia come back! Nov. 13 2009
By H. Mason - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As much as I have whined and complained (mostly to myself) that this series has gotten progressively more crappio since its beginning, and was starting to feel like book after book of blathering on with no progression at all and rehashed jokes, "Are these my basoomas I see before me?" was almost back to Rennisons original standard of hilariosity....But why end here? I totally get that 10 books is an insanely huge amount, but I only realised in this book that Georgia has only aged about a year since the first! Seriously? Only a year?? That in itself seemed a bit far fetched, but also left plenty of room for more! I guess only one to two more books could really be feasible, but why not...

SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

why not get Georgia and Dave together and then continue with their relationship? I feel like there was more Masimo in the last few books than Dave, and nobody liked Masimo!! The ending felt a little rushed is I guess what Im saying....we have all been waiting for Georgia and Dave to get it together and when they finally do, its essentially over about 2 paragraphs....in fact, Georgia was mis that Masimo and her had broken up a few sentences prior to getting together with Dave! Not the way I wanted it all to end...

That said, the fact that sooo much of Rennisons "Georgia language" has made its way into my vocabulary over the last several years, from adding "osity" to the end of everything, to calling the toilet the "wazzeranium" (I actually said that today and had a few strange looks from friends...) is testament to how completely awesome this series has been overall.....

3 stars for the awful way it ends. Dec 29 2009
By Doralyn Rush - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Let me just say that I love these books. I love Georgia and all her antics and her hilarious friends. I own all the books and I reread them regularly because they crack me up every time and are always a pick-me-up. That being said, I believe that Rennison really dropped the ball when it came to how this series ended. The thing about romantic comedies isn't the surprise ending. There's never any surprise. We like romantic comedies for the unfolding. We know who loves who from the start, but it's watching the characters discover that they love each other that we love. Of course we all loved Dave the Laugh and we knew he loved Georgia and we knew he was perfect for her. What we were waiting for was her discovering that she loved him -- the big romantic scene. But it ended with her basically rebounding and agreeing to get together with Dave because she didn't have a current sex god. I wanted to see her realization that she loved him and I was let down. For Dave's sake, I wanted him to have that -- Georgia finally getting it. It's like we waited and waited through ten books (ten wonderful books) and then splat, nothing. Just so disappointing.

Book Nerds Review Nov. 19 2009
By Anna - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I luuuuurve this series so much, it's another one of those guilty pleasures of reading! The thing is, it's silly, it's crazy, and half of the time Georgia is just a dithering spaz, but that's what makes it so great! You can laugh at her, laugh with her, feel sorry for her, and then want to hit her right up side her head, all in one book.

I first found out about the Georgia Nicolson books in 2002, when I was in 10th grade (hello, forever ago!). I can't remember if I checked it out from the school library, or the local library, but I saw it and checked it out from somewhere... and then when I finished it? I promptly went to check out the rest of the series that they had at the time (which comes out to .. well two books, apparently ha). I remember vividly sitting for my pre-FCAT test, and then trying so very hard not to laugh reading On the Bright Side, I'm Now the Girlfriend of a Sex God because I would have been kicked out and made to redo it. Then again, that sounds like something that would happen to Georgia.. Hmm. Then? THEN, I started hording the books, I pre-ordered the third book, and the fourth, then the fifth, sixth, until I unfortunately fell out of reading for a bit. Even when I DID start reading again I didn't pick up with the Georgia Nicolson series again because I knew my mom wouldn't read it. She prefers her books to have fantastical creatures in it, not crazy self-adsorbed lead characters! Then, the trip to Indiana, and the only point in my life where I had WEEKS with nothing to do, so I started reading - what would ya know?! They had the last three Georgia books (7-9), and so I read them, and I fell back in love with her and her world. Which led me to buy 7-9 & then pre-order #10: Are These My Basooma's I See Before Me? The point in telling you all of this, is that I want you to know my history with the books. To see that even though I went a few years without reading them, that when I finally caught up, I loved them JUST as much as I did before.

Are These My Basooma's I See Before Me? is the last and final installment of the Georgia Nicolson series, and I'm praying that Louise is just pulling our legs, because my life might very well be pointless with out! The last book is no let down from the others either, it's a fun, fast paced, book that follows Georgia around through all her snogging, red bottomosity as well as while she's on the rack of luuuuurve. I loved it, just as much as the others, the only downside is that - like with the other books - it implies that Georgia is the one `choosing' who she'll be with, but really it's the world evolving around her that does the choosing. I would have liked more evolution with her feelings and who she finally chooses or well, who finally chooses her. It's very obvious that she cares about him and he cares about her, but we don't see very much of it, just tiny bits here and there, and it's le crap. And I can't say anymore about the matter or I might ruin it. Sad, because I sort of want to scream TEAM DAVE THE LAUGH! from the roof tops!

Bottom line, if you like fun books, with characters that are just as imperfect as the rest of us, but have a great humor about themselves, and quirky little bits of British information, then the Confessions of Georgia Nicolson are for you. I would guarantee that you'd love them, but I can't. Sadly. So instead I will leave you with Georgia's departing words for us all:

Snog on, snog on,
With hope in your heart,
And you'll never snog alone,
You'll never snog... alone.

Vair, Vair Amusant! Oct. 11 2009
By Tamela Mccann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Oh, Georgia, you minx...you finally have the Luuurve God fully enamored and what happens? Well, plenty, as a matter of fact. In the tenth (and final! oo-er) book in the Georgia Nicolson series, Georgia's in a dither about keeping Masimo interested, playing Mercutio in the school play of Rom and Jul, keeping Angus and Gordy from eating Bum-ty, watching her parents reconnect, and figuring out just what it is precisely that she feels for the wonderful Dave the Laugh. With the Ace Gang along, Georgia's journey to maturosity is anything but smooth, but always, always humorous.

Are These My Basoomas I See Before Me? picks up closely after the previous book; Georgia's still following Masimo and the Stiff Dylans around, using all her girly skills to keep him entranced. And entranced he does become; not only does he confirm that he wants to be with Georgia, he begins to show up at Stalag 14 unexpectedly for mini-snogfests and even declares that he will turn down moving to London with the Dylans in order to stay with her. All this attention forces Georgia to reconsider and what does she find? That most of her thoughts really belong with that fab lad, Dave the Laugh. But what's a girl to do when she has a Luuurve God in the hand and a "mate" who is now with someone else?

What an exciting ending to one of the funniest series I've ever read! Georgia's stream of consciousness is hysterical, and her interactions with the Ace Gang are laugh out loud funny. I love Georgia's relationship with baby sister Libby (though I admit I'm a little concerned with how Libby will turn out--another series idea, hmmm, Ms. Rennison?). Georgia personifies what most teens are thinking and feeling when caught up in the excitement of luuurve, and the way Ms. Rennison draws out the intense relationship between Georgia and Dave is just...Groovy. Fab. Full of wisdomosity. In this final installment, there is hope for Georgia and her mates, but mostly there is laughter and fulfillment for all the loyal fans who have followed Georgia through boy entrancers, snog fests, sex gods, and Scottish wildcats. Count this fan as one well satisfied.

Goodbye Georgia Nov. 24 2009
By J. Tanny - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I love Georgia Nicholson! She is literally a comedy genius! And Book #10 doesn't disappoint -- it's still very Georgia in all her glorious nutty humor.

BUT... There was one teeny, TINY detail that made me sad about Book #10: it ends too quickly. Georgia fans have been following her love life for ten books and then everything gets wrapped-up in one little chapter at the very end... We don't even get a hint of what might happen next. Since this is supposed to be the last book -- it made me wish (futilely) for an epilogue... [insert heavy sigh]

So the only remedy I can think of is to go back to Book #1 and start all over again!
