Queen of Babble in the Big City (Queen of Babble #2)
Lizzie Nichols is back, pounding the New York City pavement and looking for a job, a place to live, and her proper place in the universe (not necessarily in that order).
"Summer Fling" Luke's use of the "L" (Living Together) word has her happily abandoning plans to share a one-room walk-up with best friend Shari in exchange for cohabitation with the love of her life in...more
I really liked the utter romance of the first book, and I wish I left it there, as the author should have.
If you were swept away by the French romance of book number one my advice is not to read this one, it will just spoil the story.
And the ...more
'Speak Now', ever again without thinking of this book.
This book was fairly fantastic, like all by Meg,
what I loooooooove the most about her books is that the characters are always SO real,
like they could easily be you, or someone you know,
and this book's heroine, Lizzie, is pretty much every woman I've known,
Yeah, you might not admitt it, but we all have a Lizzie Nichols inside,
a girl that feels like she is not cut ...more
Regardless of all the chaos, Cabot is able to kept up a humorist tone in the story and grant the reader a crazy cliffhanger. Loved it!!
This was the first time I "read" a book by listening to it on audio disc, and it was pretty boring. Maybe the last 45 minutes ...more
If I wanted to read crappy soap opera-like books, I'd read them. The ending definitely left a horrible, bad taste to this reader. After reviewi ...more
The second book returns Lizzie to the States, after meeting Luke--a former investment banker and "prince" with a chateau and vineyard in France. Of course Lizzie encourages him to follow his ...more
Ok, so I liked this story, although it took me forever to read (no fault to Meg Cabot's writing/story). I was so happy that finally on page 296 what I was hoping and praying for finally happens. Only to have it potentially ripped away on page 307. Holy cliff-hanger Batman!
I'd recommend this book if you read Queen of Babble and enjoyed it. Otherwise I don't think you'd get the same feel for the characters.
I do like chick-lit, it is always funny, sweet and totally silly, and a girl needs silly now and again.
This is the second book about Lizzie Nichols, in the last book she found her prince charming, and he is really a prince too, if one of many French ones. They are living together on 5th Avenue until she can find something with her friend Shari. She also wants to find a job working with what she loves, wedding dresses. Things do not go as she expected and she ends up living with Luke, working as ...more
Scatterbrained, babble-prone Lizzie Nichols is back. She’s living with her boyfriend - Luke in a plush 5th Avenue Flat in the city of her dreams, New York. The expert on vintage clothes is bursting with enthusiasm and has that special-sheen which only a happily-ever-after scenario brings.
But just when you start ...more
* Same fun writing. Although, I didn't find myself laughing as much as I did with the first book in this series.
* All these vintage clothing and wedding dress refurbishing talk has me missing my sewing machine. This series has me tailoring my shirts that just sit in my closet because they fit funny.
* Shari's story twist. Saw this coming, but it was still a little shocker.
* Like the new characte ...more
Through events that must happen in the first book, Lizzie is now an aspiring wedding dress shop alternator (she likes to take really old wedding dresses and update them, she also find fun vintage clothing for herself), but cannot find a paying job now that she has just moved to the Big City, ...more
The beginning of this book finds Lizzie moving to New York City to pursue her dream of becoming a certified wedding dress restorer. Luke is also in New York City pursuing his dream of becoming a doctor. The two of them move into Luke's mother's apartment together while she is living in France with Luke's fa ...more
Weirdly enough I liked this book even better than the first one. I can't say why but it kept me intrigued. I liked the little stuff about wedding dresses, (more than the extras in the first book) .
All and all I liked this book so much I tried to buy book 3 . Queen of Babble gets hitched. Alas it is not yet available here. There is a Belgium shop where I could order it but it would cost me 19 euros.
Then I did a search and I ordered it online through a new online store: ...more
It was an okay book, though, as are all by this author.
Meg Cabot was born on February 1, 1967, during the Chinese astrological year of the Fire Horse, a notoriously unlucky sign. Fortunately she grew up in Bloomington, Indiana, where few people were aware of the stigma of being a fire horse -- at least until Meg became a teenager, when she flun ...more
