The Taming of the Tights Review

If you don't know who Louise Rennison is (then there is something wrong with you..), she is the author of the well known books and film Angus Thongs and Perfect Snogging. I'm pretty sure 100% of the teenage girl population have either read, seen or heard about it. I read the book and saw the film and it made me a huge fan of Louise Rennison and that's why I was so excited to read a book by her called 'The Taming of the Tights'.

Just to summarize for you, the book is about a teenage called Tallulah who goes to a summer drama school, and the story follows her 'wild times'. I don't want to say too much about it but it really is fun, quirky and cringey book (Lots of 'snogging' involved). It's very funny, and even more so because it sort of reminded me of my 15 year old self, in terms of boys and the situations Tallulah finds herself in!

The thing I like about this book is that it's not too serious and it's really fun and entertaining to read. A lot of the time, I'll get half way through reading a book and just give up because I get bored because there isn't enough humor in it (a genre I much prefer). But I enjoyed this book from start to finish and I think you lot will too!

Overall, I give this book two thumbs up, especially if you're around age 15 because there's a lot of things within the book that you'll be able to relate to and it'll make the book even more enjoyable.

Have you read this book or any in the series? Let me know in the comments. There's also two other books in this series (I've also read the first one) so be sure to check those out too for a full dose of Tallulah Casey!
