A couple new books...

Startled by his Furry Shorts
Book 7 is the Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series
by Louise Rennison
From the book jacket...
"On the rack of romance. And also in the oven of luuurve. And possibly on my way to the bakery of pain. And maybe even going to stop along the way to get a little cake at the cakeshop of agony. Shut up, brain, shut up.
Georgia is in quite a predicament. Dave the Laugh has declared his love for her (at least she thinks he was talking about her), leaving her in a state of confusiosity. And then when she finally decides to give Masimo an ultimatum -- to be her one and only -- he tells her he needs to think about it.
To distract herself from her romantic woes, Georgia throws herself into Mac-Useless play rehearsals and planning a Viking wedding, and tries to avoid all thoughts of boy decoys, Italian-American dreamboats... and let's not forget guitar-plucking Sex Gods!"
This book is sure to be a good one. If you want to read the others in this series, the titles, in order, are...

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) Dancing in my Nuddy-pants
5) Away Laughing on a Fast Camel
6) Then he Ate my Boy Entrancers
