Queen of Babble in the Big City - Meg Cabot
Queen of Babble in the Big City - Meg Cabot

I can barely remember what goes on in Lizzie's romantic life in this one, but again, the fun is in her life: her career, and her friends, and her family.

I like Lizzie, and her family, and her career, and the humor. I didn't particularly care about the romance, nor did I mind it. That just wasn't what I was reading for. Mostly I was reading it because these books are pure fun, and Veronica was reading them, and I really like sharing books with my daughters.

As much as I like most of Cabot's books, I was slow to pick up this series. My daughter had to read it first and then convince me. "Queen of Babble" didn't sound like something I'd like, as an individual book or as a series. The cover, for some reason, is associated with Shopaholic, and since shopping as recreation doesn't interest me...Had it been titled "Discovering Your Foreign Sweetie is a Complete Wanker" I'd have been all over it. Also, I like the travel aspect, and there is nothing that says Midwestern Girl in Europe for the First Time.

And now Lizzie is a favorite heroine: she's clever, she's resourceful, she's talented, and she solves problems.

The Bride Wore Size 12 - Meg Cabot

So headcanon, concerning the cameo at the end?

 

Lizzie Nichols was a Heather Wells fangirl. She's moved on like everyone else has, but when Heather's dragged through Lizzie's doors (grumping and trailing behind her future sisters-in-law and wedding planner), Lizzie totally had a FREAKOUT and was all "OMG YOU'RE HEATHER WELLS I used to listen to you all the time-"

 

And Heather's all "Yeah yeah yeah 'Sugar Rush' what happened to me I'm happy can we move on please."

 

But Lizzie's very sincere about it and she's SO EXCITED because she gets to make HEATHER WELLS'S WEDDING DRESS and the first time she meets Cooper Lizzie tells him he's much hotter than Jordan. (Cooper mentally groans.) And Ava and Tiffany are standing around going "Why the hell are we freaking about this client?" and Lizzie's all "IT'S HEATHER WELLS YOU GUYS."

 

And the scene at the end, Ava and Tiffany are standing by the door, listening to what's going on while Lizzie's swatting them away to give Heather and her family some privacy god.

 

(YAY INTER-CABOT CANON CONTINUITY!)

Queen of Babble Gets Hitched - Meg Cabot I managed to get my hands on Queen of Babble Gets Hitched, the final book in the Queen of Babble trilogy by Meg Cabot. This series is one of my favourites by Cabot--I simply love Lizzie Nicholls and her spontaneous personality.

The Queen of Babble is Lizzie Nicholls, a 23-year-old with a passion for wedding gowns and vintage clothes (her dream job is wedding gown restorer) who can't seem to keep her mouth shut. In the first book of the series, Lizzie meets and falls in love with Luke de Villiers, a French prince (nonetheless) with a lot of money but not a lot of heart. In the second book of the series, Quen of Babble in New York, Lizzie moves in with Luke in his New York apartment in order to pursue her dreams of becoming a certified wedding gown specialist. She finds a job a Chez Henri, a wedding gown shop, but things with Luke get worse. As a matter of fact, they break up, because he "can't see her in his future", while Lizzie wants to get married.

At the beginning of Queen of Babble Gets Hitched, Lizzie wakes up next to her ex-boyfriend's best friend (not to mention best friend's ex boyfriend) Chaz, while Luke comes back to her with a marriage proposal. Lizzie's dream has become true. Why, then, the idea of getting married makes her break out in hives? And why does she feel all flustered when she sees Chaz, who is totally against her marrying Luke?

Of course, all will turn out right in the end, and our Lizzie will have her happy ending, together with a much-deserved success in her career. Queen of Babble Gets Hitched is pure chick-lit at its best. With Meg Cabot's irony and gift in telling Lizzie's story, you are guaranteed for a light, fun reading.

I loved this book. I'd recommend to all Cabot fans, and to all the lovers of the chick-lit genre.
