Don't be scandalized by the title of this What to Read Wednesday's book! It's actually one of the funniest books I've ever read. I first read Angus, Thongs, and Full Frontal Snogging during a summer in between years of high school. My friend Jenna and I would spend hours browsing through the stacks and finding books and movies. Some made us laugh like the VHS called "Belly Dancing Grandmas" (we didn't check it out but the cover looked exactly like what you would think). This was one of those books I picked purely on the cover and title. (Despite the saying, I usually judge books by their covers...sorry). I thought it looked like a fun, quick read, and I was right.
Angus, Thongs, and Full Frontal Snogging by Lousie Rennison was literally laugh-out-loud funny.
What to Read Wednesday: Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging
Angus, Thongs, and Full Frontal Snogging was first published in 1999 but the emotions still stand up to modern day.
The story follows Georgia Nicolson a teenager in England as she tries to convince an older boy Robbie that he should date her. It's written in the style of a diary which makes it more interesting as you get all of Georgia's thoughts. Angus, by the way, is her cat that they found while on holiday in Scottland.
I think this book really resonated with me at first because I was the same age as Georgia in the book and I felt a lot of the same emotions as she did. But that doesn't mean I didn't enjoy it still as an adult. It was in college when I was finally able to read the rest of the series (yes it's a whole hilarious series of books). I still found them hilarious and was sad when I finished the series.
The first two books in the Georgia Nicolson series were adapted into a movie released in 2008 called "Angus, Thongs, and Perfect Snogging." I'll probably be covering it in an episode of From Cover to Reel in the future, but it was received well by the critics.
