Review: Dancing in My Nuddy Pants by Louise Rennison

Publication Date: 5-25-2004
Publisher: HarperTeen
Pages: 240
Format: Paperback
Source: Purchased
Challenge: TBR Challenge

Goodreads Summary:
Once more I am beyond the Valley of the Confused and treading lightly in the Universe of the Huge Red Bottom. What is the matter with me? I love the Sex God and he is my one and only, but try telling that to my lips.

Georgia has finally put her red-bottomosity to rest and chosen Robbie the Sex God over Dave the Laugh. After all, with the Sex God she'll be a pop-star girlfriend and go on tour Besides, Dave the Laugh is now dating her friend Ellen (although that didn't stop Georgia from snogging him at a party ... ).

But when the Sex God is never around and Dave the Laugh breaks up with Ellen, Georgia doesn't know what to think Is she doomed to be a pop-star widow, or will she take her own bottom firmly in hand and blow her cosmic horn? And will her cat, Angus (the size of a small Labrador, only mad), ever get over the shame of having his trouser snake addendums snipped? As always, in Georgia's life, nothing ever turns out as planned.

Alright, by now you know how funny I find this series to be, and if you don’t, well you’re missing out.  This series greatly compares to the Jessica Darling series by Megan McCafferty.  They are fun reads told in the style of a diary.  We read about the daily happenings of Georgia.  Including her so-called cat, boy troubles, best-friend troubles, family issues, and everything in between.  There is nothing in this book that isn’t funny.  They are short quick reads that tell a fun little teenage story.  Of course, the first book I read was a little tough to understand because there are British words that didn’t make any sense to me.

I don’t want to give anything away since this is book number four in this series, but I really recommend you give it a shot.  These books are so much different than the normal books we come across these days.  Most YA books I come across either have supernatural beings in them or they’re focused on the world-ending.  These are nice uplifting books to read in between.  Something to give you a great laugh before going back to the dreariness!

I'm definitely missing out as I haven't heard about this series before. It sounds like a great and very funny read. Now I can keep my eye out for them!
