Big mouth. Big heart.

Big wedding. Big problems.

It's the wedding of the century!

Things are looking up at last for Lizzie Nichols. She has a career she loves in the field of her choice (wedding gown restoration), and the love of her life, Jean-Luc, has finally proposed. Life's become a dizzying whirl of wedding gown fittings—not necessarily her own—as Lizzie prepares for her

The second and third book in the series were awful!! She totally ruined the romance of the first one...

It's as if Jane Austen decided to write Pride and Prejudice II and III and by the end of the third book had Mr. Darcy being a real prick, had Elisabeth and Mr. Bigley secretly in love with each other and getting married, and dear Jane become a lesbian. It would spoil the story, wouldn't it?

So please authors, if you don't know how to develop a love story, don't go ruining it to sell more books..

First off, let me say that I only read this book because the book club I'm trying to get into picked this as their read this month. I am only sticking with the bookclub after this book, because the person hosting sent out an email apology for how bad this book is. So I know I'm not going to be surrounded by women gushing about this stupid book.
Aaaagggggghhhh! Awful book. In the beginning I could only stand to read this one chapter at a time. As I got closer to the end, I read a big chunk at once
Queen of Babble Gets Hitched is the third and final installment of the Queen of Babbles series. Now this isn't my favorite series but when I saw this book while passing by.. well, I couldn't just keep on walking. I figured I could suffer a little bit more and just read the last book of this series and never think about it ever again.

Let's just say.. I should've kept on walking. This book was terrible and just not for me. The main character, Lizzie, ugh.. I detested her so much. I thought she wou

Again my suggestion is to stop at book number one.
Book number three goes beyond annoying. As I said in my review of book number two, I think the author should have left it at the happy romantic ending of book number one.
The last book of the series completely destroys the romantic hero of book number one, Luke, which had been already largely abused in book number two, making him a spineless jerk.
But then it goes way too far:

Meg Cabot's final book in her "Queen of Babble" series.

My biggest problem with this book- and the series in general- is that the first Queen of Babble book doesn't really belong with the last two books. It's as if Cabot just decided to use those same characters in two more books, but just chose to forget about the characterizations she set up in Book One. It's almost as if two different people wrote the books....

On the other hand, I like the heroine a lot. Lizzie Nichols is quite endearing, alt

Update 10/25 - still awesome!

This is the third and last book in the series about "Queen of babbles" and I loved this one. The second book ends in with a cliffhanger and this one picks up where that one left off. However, you can easily read this as a stand-alone novel as well. The story is a classical tale on the theme "insecure girl meets perfect guy – but is he really perfect?".

Lizzie Nichols is a wonderful heroine who works with restoring wedding gowns. She is sincere and truly nice but inse

I read through this book critiquing (Silently, of course...After all, who am I to criticize...Have I written a novel yet?) the characters, writing and lack of tension/surprise/interest in the plot. Yikes!

If you didn't believe me before... believe it now - I'm a sucker for a Meg Cabot book! A very nice bit of fluff - a true summer read. I've totally added Chaz to my list of literary men that have ruined me for real men. I'm sorry, but remembering that stupid stuff, the "I like a side of ice with my wine" stuff, is totally romantic gold. I was actually just channel surfing the other night and saw Kevin James' (The King of Queens) stand-up routine... he was advising the men of the audience to remem ...more

This last book was good and unexpected compared to other chick lit books that exist out there and for that I loved every bit of it!

The book begins where the second book in the series left us and that is with Lizzie accepting Luke's proposal in marriage. But then why she is not so happy as she expected? Personally I do not think in a perfect guy so finding out that Luke was not so perfect is kind of realistic. I loved Chaz from the beginning to the last page, I mean he is n

Meg Cabot, as you know, is the author of the Princess Diary series which were written for teenage girls. This book is supposed to be written for adults and I was curious to see how well Meg Cabot made that transition. Unfortunately, not so well. The characters are older but their mentality is just as young. I kept wondering why this young woman who is the main character was so clueless about herself. I realize it's because she is still writing as though the character is adolescent instead of adu ...more

This series was just really fun, full of the ups and downs and trials and tribulations of being out in the world for the first time. I definitely, definitely, love how the series was resolved and how much personal growth and friendship and love it took to get Lizzie there. I'm not sure I liked the change wrought in Luke's character, but if I'm being honest, he and Lizzie were a strange pairing to begin with, so it works for me in the end. I've really enjoyed these characters -- even the crazy si ...more

Lizzie wakes up to the new year in the arms of..... Chaz! The streaming images of her memory flashes to the night before and the beard burn all over her face only confirms it! As if she isn’t surprised enough, who would happen to turn up on her doorstep, but Luke. And just like that he slips a huge rock on her finger and she gives Chaz the boot!

So, why does she get these warm tingly feelings whenever she thinks about Chaz, and she so conveniently breaks out in hives whenever she thinks about get

I have read one other Meg Cabot book and I thought she was humorous. So I picked up another one and I thought I would give it a try. This book wasn't anything like the other one. It wasn't funny at all. This was truly awful, shallow and repetitive. The characters were so incredibly self absorbed and they focused their attention on such mundane things.

Now I could blame this on the fact that I was in the dentist chair getting a temporary crown put in, which is NOT fun. But I actually started this

Cabot surprised me a bit with this series, but I really enjoyed watching Lizzie grow and change. I was happy she finally opened her eyes and was able to see people without her rose colored filter, and I loved knowing that Lizzie was heading for a great future.

Blesh, no, this is not a good book. Okay, I know that most Meg Cabot books follow the same exact formula, and I'm okay with that. I don't mind. I don't expect a masterpiece or anything, but this is just so bad it's unforgiveable.

I don't even know where to start? The way Shari being a lesbian is treated in the second book was not good but it was, I suppose, well-meant, in this there's a point where Shari's about to say "I'm a lesbian" and Lizzie INTERUPTS HER, because the word "lesbian" is so ups

Well, I am sick enough to skip classes for a couple of days, and too groggy to read anything of substance. So I chose this trilogy because Meg Cabot has proven to be someone who writes just that - books with no substance. I needed something light and brainless, and that's what I got. In that sense, it was good...Well, adequate.

I'm giving it two stars because Cabot's main characters are indistinguishable from each other - Lizzie in these books is exactly like what's-her-name in 'size 14 is not fa

The series conclusion didn't disappoint.

After Luke admits to Lizzie that he doesn't see a future with her, she moves out of the apartment, devastated. She can't believe she dreamt of becoming his wife (she designs wedding dresses for a living). Then Chaz, Luke's best friend reveals his feelings for her and they spend the night together. But when Luke comes back with a diamond ring, Lizzie can't help saying yes. So what if she prefers Chaz... Luke wants to get married.

The book is more of an inte

Loved the ending to the series! Chaz has made my "list" of favorite guys, mostly because he reminds me alot of my own husband (dressing style, the sports thing and the sarcastic humor). Some have criticized how "Luke" was written in the end but girls, lets face it, guys really ARE like that. Meg did a good job reminding us that "princes" can also be cads at the same time and not to overlook what it means to have someone love you for who you are (and who they are).

This book was my least favorite among the Queen of Babble series! I was very disappointed in a lot of ways... How come that a girl like Lizzie who adores weddings and love dresses can't have a wedding of her own but a secret marriage because the guy she likes can NOT compromise on his idea of weddings!? I mean, come on, if he loves her enough he would do it for her! And how come that Luke turned out to be a jerk when he was prince charming all along!

It's been a year now, and I'm STILL TRYING TO FINISH IT! Why is this book so much harder to read than the other ones? LOVED the second book. Could not put it down. But this one? It just seems so....unnecessary. Just when I start to think she may have a brain under all that hair, and maybe even a spine under those spanks, she goes and says yes to the french phoney.

SHEESH....I'll update my rating/review when I can bring myself to FINISH the damn thing....

Complete crap. Lizzie Nichols was a pretty fun character in the first two books, but she just goes to pieces in this one. Biggest turn off (other than content and a LOT of unnecessary language) was the whole "yeah, I guess I kinda-sorta had an affair, but I found out later that he was cheating, too, so it's A-OK!!" argument that supposedly sorts everything out. Disgusting.

I didn't like this book at all, which was a pity because I've read a couple of Meg Cabot's other books and I've enjoyed them immensely.

This one, unfortunately, took too long to get going and I didn't find the main character sympathetic.

This will not prevent me from looking out other Meg Cabot books, however!
