Funny, enjoyable, chick lit romance.
Yes, full of ideas known from other books of this genre I haven t found any original new idea , but still I don t mind I have a nice time Nonetheless, I am not interested in reading the next parts of the series But Meg Cabot s books stay on my shelf to read in the times of need.

Some may find this novel superficial, unrealistic and way too predictable, and you know, maybe it kind of is but that doesn t mean it s less fun.
I read this book after reading a lot of depressing books and wooow, it seriously was an amazing choice I just couldn t put it down It s the perfect book for the summer if you re looking for something light, fun and happy Sometimes you just need to read some brainless stuff to put you in a good mood and this novel is succesful in achieving it The secondary characters make the entire series, they re all amazing and so particular, and well I just could not love Lizzie even if she sometimes comes across as a little inmature, she s flawed and that s what makes me like her I like to add how I kind of like to see this book as a stand alone for the other two, but don t get me wrong, that doesn t mean I loved them less I don t want to spoil anything so I won t say a lot, just that you ll understand what I mean when you read the other two and you re going to be extremely surprised I ve been recommending this book a looot, so give this a chance, it s always nice to dream a little P Basic InfoFormat AudioPages Length 5hrs and 41mins.

Thoughts Had really wow what a bit h Diet coke ConclusionContinuing the Series yesRecommending ehShort Review Okay i am going to write a book where the girl runs off to paris by her self and gets KILLED i m over this whole lets just run off to paris and get on trains and just be okay NO secondly, you seriously didn t know your boyfriends living situation before you flow over the OCEAN to see him nor his job sigh some times love truly blinds some people Misc Book Boyfriend oh i can t remember his name Best Friend Material the MC even thou she is the babble queen Review in GIF Form Lizzie Nichols is a blabber mouth But that s not her biggest problem If I was her, I d be focused on the fact that I was a self absorbed, boyfriend stealing, shallow, mindless, sorry excuse for a woman After meeting a guy for 24 hours, this idiot declares that she s in love with him AND THEN proceeds to move in with him, to another country of course, after only knowing him for three months I put quotations around knowing because after the initial 24 hours, the contact she had with this guy was only through e mail The fact that she leaves a mere day after she has arrived because the guy isn t what he seemed to be you mean in the oh, I don t know, 24 hours you ve actually had a real conversation with him Color me shocked is neither here nor there because she then continues to be an idiot throughout the entire summer.
Case in point Another mere 24 hours after leaving the love of her life, she then falls in love with another guy after, you got it, knowing him for 24 hours She just lurves him And that s all she thinks about This chick is pathetic All she bitches about is a guy All the time The guy might be moving to Paris and she thinks Oh that s a whole ocean away from me Dude, you ve known him for two days, did you really envision this grand I will love you forever scenario Then she complains about the guy s girlfriend being mean to her, saying I don t know what I ever did to her Well, gee, I don t know, maybe you ve been blabbing everything she told you out to people she wouldn t want you to or maybe it s the fact that you ve been FLIRTING with her BOYFRIEND in a not so subtle way Hell, if it was me, I wouldn t have been manipulative, I would ve pounded Lizzie Nichols into the ground pathetic chicks tend to bring out violent tendencies in me with the whole backtracking the feminist movement about fifty years thing Seriously, this chick was like Bella with a better fashion sense.
And another thing, the whole blabbermouth thing is not cute In the slightest Sure, on some people it s endearing five year olds, honest to God good bitchy people , but on Lizzie Nichols it wasn t It just made her sound like an idiot One who can t keep a secret for the life of her She was also nosy She needed to mind her own damn business than half the time Annoying.
The only reason I gave Queen of Babble two stars instead of one is because I really liked the supporting characters Shari was actually smart which means Meg Cabot can write a smart female, but chose not to in regards to Lizzie, which is baffling and Chaz was just adorable I also really liked Agnes So, two stars for great supporting characters and for being a quick page turner Too bad the main character was annoying and a disgrace to strong women everywhere I call her Bella lite.
This is a mindless read The main character, Lizzie, has just graduated college with a degree that is pretty much useless She has no idea what she ll do with the rest of her life, and she is completely wrapped up in Andrew, a boy she spent one evening with She flies to England to spend the summer with him, which is where the real story picks up Lizzie is a superficial and annoying character, making it difficult to keep reading at times, but there are a few funny bits throughout the story In a way, Lizzie reminds me of Rachel from Friends in the first season superficial, whiny, and dumb to the ways of the world but she speaks like a middle schooler Not meant for the literary geniuses of the world
I thought I would dislike the protagonist because she shoots her mouth off at every opportunity, based on the title, but in actuality, she just has a tendency to open mouth and insert foot I m guilty of that myself at times, so I could identify with her plight I did think what was essentially her trans Atlantic booty call was a bit ridiculous, but it worked out in the end There was a lot of room for character growth and Lizzie really shined as she worked to figure out what she wanted to do with her life I ended up kinda spoiling myself for the second book because I thought that s the one I had already downloaded from the library, but it turns out it was the third book Oops Oh, wellit does seem like things get even interesting, though.
Ah, Meg Cabot Author of the famous Princess Diaries.
Which is presumably why they automatically put Queen of Babble in the children s section at my local library Aaaand this is me, aged 9, finding that detailed sex scene Completely unrelated and random fun fact about me I can pinpoint the exact moment my childhood ended.
