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.
