Queen of Babble in the Big City (Queen of Babble, #2) Read Online Free - 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).
When "Summer Fling" Luke uses the L word (Living Together), Lizzie is only too happy to give up her plan of being postgrad roomies with best friend, Shari, in a one-room walk-up in exchange for cohabitation with the love of her life in his mother's Fifth Avenue pied-à-terre, complete with doorman and resident Renoir.
But Lizzie's not as lucky in her employment search. As Shari finds the perfect job, Lizzie struggles through one humiliating interview after another, being judged overqualified for the jobs in her chosen field—vintage-gown rehab—and underqualified for everything else. It's Shari's boyfriend Chaz to the rescue when he recommends Lizzie for a receptionist's position at his father's posh law firm. The nonpaying gig at a local wedding-gown shop Lizzie manages to land all on her own.
But Lizzie's notoriously big mouth begins to get her into trouble at work and at home almost at once—first at the law firm, where she becomes too chummy with Jill Higgins, a New York society bride with a troublesome future mother-in-law, and then back on Fifth Avenue, when she makes the mistake of bringing up the M word (Marriage) with commitment-shy Luke.
Soon Lizzie finds herself jobless as well as homeless all over again. Can Lizzie save herself—and the hapless Jill—and find career security (not to mention a mutually satisfying committed relationship) at last?

Rating changes from 3 to 2 stars because of this review.
Queen of Babble in the Big City was meh. Lizzie moves to New York which kind of reminded me of shopaholic. She is jobless and apartmentless. But hey, her boyfriend and her best friends boyfriend solve those two problems real quick!

This book truly annoyed me!! The second book of the series completely ruins the story of the first. When an author writes the perfect romantic story, with a great happy ending, why do they have to go and destroy everything with a second and a third book?!
I really liked the utter romance of the f...

I don't think I'll be able to marry, attend a wedding, or listen to Taylor Swift's
'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 y...

Strangely, meeting prince charming and moving in to New York city with him, did not turn Lizzie's life into a fairy tale. The only job she can find in her field doesn't pay, her best friend Shari's behavior has become unbearable and to make matters worse, the prince does not want to commit.

I think I'm officially over Meg Cabot. I enjoyed a couple of books in one of her series, but now that I've read 4 books by her, I've found that they're all based on the same story, and they always have the same ending. By the time I got to this book I was able to predict the ending and storyline...

Absolutely and extremely disappointed in this novel to say the least. For the majority of it I loved it and even was starting to prefer it to the original - which I loved!! This book is a fast read and one I was genuinely enjoying before the end of the book where Meg seems to take every character...

It was good to listen to in the car because yelling at all the idiots in this book kept me from yelling at all the idiots on the turnpike.

I loved the first Queen of Babble book...but ultimately, there is no where for chick lit to go but marriage and the rigors of planning a wedding. Having read it all before, I was a little frustrated and bored with Lizzie Nichols, the aforementioned Queen of Babble, a blabber-mouth and vintage fas...

Are you kidding me? That's how it's going to end!
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....

The first 1/2 of this one just drug on and on for me. Then the second 1/2 (mostly from when she got what would be her big break in her chosen field), it was pretty good. But I don't buy the Chaz thing. I think that was all "I'm sad, drunk, at a wedding on new year's and now I'm horney." I didn't...
