Love Is A Many Trousered Thing is book eight and I am having a total blast rereading this series. I remember the first time I read this book I about died at the ending because the next book hadn't been released yet. Lucky for me, I own them all now, so I can read the series as fast or as slow as I want. And even though I know what happens in the end, I always finish the books in this series totally ready to start the next one. I have to force myself to change it up, because this blog is already a bit too Harry Potter, Georgia Nicholson, Stephanie Plum. I swear I read more than those three series! Just not lately.
Book Eight, follows Georgia as she tries to figure out what she wants... massive spoilers in this paragraph... just fyi... there's no other way around it without being totally vague and if I did that, I might as well not have this paragraph at all. On to the story... Massimo has said he is free to date Georgia only seconds before Georgia's first love, Robbie the Sex God, shows up. Clearly, the sane thing for Georgia to do (which she does) is ask about the footie scores, say she has a train to catch, and run away in the opposite direction. Georgia has spent the entire series stalking boys into liking her and now she has too many.
Besides the love fandango is the usual madness that is the Ace Gang. Rosie is still planning her Viking wedding, Jas still wears big knickers and has too many stuffed owls, and Dave the Laugh still pops into Georgia's mind more than he should. The titches (first formers who Gerogia saved in a previous book) make another appearance and man do I love them. They are like little tiny Georgia's... just as crazy and fun.
As always happens with these books (with the exception of Dancing in my Nuddy Pants and the final book Are These My Basooma's I See Before Me?) the book ends with the conflict resolving right before a twist that creates an even bigger problem. I don't mind. These books are laugh out loud funny and have plenty of conflict. I bet I will once again be disappointed when I finish book ten and remember that it is the last one.
This book counts toward the following challenges: Read Me Baby One More Time, 100+, and seven in a series for the Hogwarts Reading Challenge. Track my progress on the 2011 challenges page.
PS- I got behind on posting and I want to get all my reviews done by the end of the month so that I complete the Hogwarts Reading Challenge. Get ready for lots of reviews this week! :)
