Queen of Babble Gets Hitched

Queen of Babble Gets Hitched is the third book in Meg Cabot’s adult contemporary rom-com trilogy Queen of Babble.

Yes, these books may have been published years ago – but if you, like me, are late to the game and have not yet read them, don’t read this review! It’ll unescapably contain spoilers from the first two books – and ruin all the fun!

Instead, check out my reviews of Queen of Babble and Queen of Babble in the Big City.

But if you kept up with the series and are either up to the final book or have already read it and simply curious what I thought, read on!!

Lizzie Nichols finds herself in another conundrum. Leaving Luke, moving into a place of her own, and obtaining the job of her dreams (or close enough for now) was invigorating.

But now Luke showed up, got on one knee and asked her to marry him.

This being the focal point of the breakup, Lizzie accepts and slides that sparkling ring on her finger.

Only problem? Her best friend’s ex-boyfriend, whom Lizzie just recently shared a night of surprisingly enjoyable flirting and kissing, is asleep in her bed upstairs. Fully clothed, thank God!

Lizzie assures herself that Luke is the love of her life, and her interesting night with Chaz is to be forgotten and never brought up again – oh, what would Shari think!

As time goes on though, Lizzie struggles with thoughts of her upcoming nuptials – something she never imagined happening, as she is a bit of a wedding fanatic – and Chaz continues to make it clear he does not support her union with Luke.

Confusion wrenches at Lizzie as she tries to figure out what to do, since none of the options seem easy…

Queen of Babble Gets Hitched was a great end to a delectable trilogy. It was hilarious, outrageous, and irresistibly romantic!

Lizzie as our main character with very little ability to keep her mouth shut is infectious – her shambles of a love life is entertaining to follow. Plus, the moments of hardship – the real life kind – bring a bit more maturity to an otherwise cotton candy type of story.

Queen of Babble as a series might not be my favorite from Meg Cabot, but it still has that milkshake goodness – sweet, rich, and crave-worthy – but sometimes too much. Lizzie ran through a lot of guys in a three book series, and sometimes she did get infuriating and the plot occasionally felt like it jumped around a bit – but I truly did love the turns it took that were unpredictable from reading book one. That was cool!

I’m glad I read them. I’m glad I own them. They’re just not the “must read” Meg Cabot novels, in my opinion.

Real Live Boyfriends

Real Live Boyfriends is a YA contemporary novel by E. Lockhart, and the fourth novel in the Ruby Oliver quartet.

Here we are on the last day of “Ruby Oliver Week” and if you aren’t already reading these books – well, why not?

But I’m more than sure most of you are – and hopefully you’re all caught up, and therefore not at risk of being spoiled by my review of Real Live Boyfriends. You’ve been warned!

Ruby Oliver is beginning her senior year of high school with a real live boyfriend: Noel.

At least she thought she was.

After having spent the rest of junior year and the beginning of summer being fully in love (okay, they never actually said the word, but the vibes were strongly in that direction), Ruby is now confused.

Again.

When Noel went to visit his brother in New York for a while, almost every day they talked on the phone and exchanged funny emails. She never once felt insecure.

Until all of a sudden – communication stopped. Ruby would call and he wouldn’t answer. She’d leave a voice mai…

Titanic: S.O.S.

S.O.S. is the third and final book in Gordon Korman's middle-grade Titanic trilogy.

This is the third book in a trilogy, book addicts! You must, I repeat, must read the first two books (Unsinkable and Collision Course) before you read this review. Otherwise you are just going to ruin all the twists! Sure, we know the Titanic sinks - but the surprises that are revealed about our characters, among other things, should not be spoiled!

But all of you that have read the first two books (which I hope are many of you, because this a great series), can rest assured that I won't spoil anything from S.O.S. itself - just a basic recap and my opinion.

Here goes:

The Titanic is sinking. No one wants to believe it, but the bow is almost imperceptibly starting to dip into the freezing Atlantic Ocean - and our four main characters are thrown into a race for survival.

Paddy is locked up below deck, having finally been caught as a stowaway. In one cell over are the very criminals that wish him dead…

Gardenia

Why hello there, loyal readers!

It's been a long, long time since I last wrote about a new novel - or wrote much of anything original. Life has definitely changed for me in many ways, changing how and where I devote my time.

But... whaddya know? I managed to finally finish a book!

Gardenia is a YA genre mash of murder mystery with a dash of sci-fi/fantasy, written by author Kelsey Sutton.

When Ivy's best friend died, it wasn't a surprise to her.

Because, ever since she was little, Ivy has seen the numbers over everyone's heads. Their countdown, if you will.

But she didn't know the cause of her best friend's death would be... murder.

Labled as a bit of an outcast, due to her odd behavior and reaction to Vanessa's death, Ivy finds herself more alone than ever as she is determined to find her friend's killer.

And she doesn't have much time, herself... as she's known her whole life.

Now, she realizes, it may be that she may give up her life to catch…
