Queen of Babble (Queen of Babble, #1) Read Online Free -
What's an American girl with a big mouth, but an equally big heart, to do?
Lizzie Nichols has a problem, and it isn't that she doesn't have the slightest idea what she's going to do with her life, or that she's blowing what should be her down payment on a cute little Manhattan apartment on a trip to London to visit her long-distance boyfriend, Andrew. But what's the point of planning for the future when she's done it again? See, Lizzie can't keep her mouth shut. And it's not just that she can't keep her own secrets, she can't keep anything to herself.
This time when she opens her big mouth, her good intentions get Andrew in major hot water. So now Lizzie's stuck in London with no boyfriend and no place to stay until the departure date written on her non-refundable airline ticket.
Fortunately, there's Shari, Lizzie's best friend and college roommate, who's spending her summer in southern France, catering weddings with her boyfriend, Chaz, in a sixteenth-century château. One call and Lizzie's on a train to Souillac. Who cares if she's never traveled alone in her life and only speaks rudimentary French? One glimpse of gorgeous Château Mirac - not to mention gorgeous Luke, the son of Château Mirac's owner - and she's smitten.
But while most caterers can be trusted to keep a secret, Lizzie's the exception. And no sooner has the first cork been popped than Luke hates her, the bride is in tears, and it looks like Château Mirac is in danger of becoming a lipo-recovery spa. As if things aren't bad enough, her ex-boyfriend Andrew shows up looking for "closure" (or at least a loan), threatening to ruin everything, especially Lizzie's chance at ever finding real love...
Unless she can figure out a way to use that big mouth of hers to save the day.

This is chick-lit at its worst. Predictable, and annoying, the protagonist makes you want to throw her off of a moving train. She speaks like my 15 year old niece, perhaps worst. I found it somewhat hard to believe that someone like the leading male in the book would find a vapid, self absorbed,...

Once again, after reading a string of heavier novels, I was ready for something light and fluffy. Yay for literary cotton candy, and a good "chick lit" book can always be counted on.
Without having read the first one, I added all three Queen of Babble books to my list, figuring I'm neurotic enoug...

I've been reading a lot of books lately and I haven't written a review for any of them! I decided to start writing one for Queen of Babble because this is seriously in my chick-lit top list right now. I love it.
Some may find this novel superficial, unrealistic and way too predictable, and you kno...

Re-read 7/29/15: 2.5 out of 5 stars. Cute, but nothing special. I feel like I remember this being so much better. Oh well.

This is a mindless read. The main character, Lizzie, has just graduated college with a degree that is pretty much useless. She has no idea what she'll do with the rest of her life, and she is completely wrapped up in Andrew, a boy she spent one evening with. She flies to England to spend the summ...

Lizzie Nichols is a blabber-mouth. But that's not her biggest problem. If I was her, I'd be more focused on the fact that I was a self-absorbed, boyfriend-stealing, shallow, mindless, sorry excuse for a woman. After meeting a guy for 24 hours, this idiot declares that she's in love with him AND T...

Queen of Babble is the first in the Queen of Babble trilogy starring Lizzie Nichols. When we meet her she’s just about to fly to London to be with her long-distance boyfriend Andrew. Trouble is, he hasn’t been totally honest with Lizzie and she ends up with nowhere to go. Her friend Shari offers...

I picked this book up for variety, since it has been sitting on my office table for the longest time, and it's been a while since I read a chicklit novel. The verdict? It was a light, okay read - nothing exceptional (where chicklit is concerned), nothing bad, either.
Queen of Babble is the story o...

3.5 stars, actually.
This book was okay. If you are looking for a light and fluffy read this will do, but I have to say I would recommend the Heather Wells series over this one. This series is very similar to that one, in my opinion, but it doesn't have the fun mystery of Heather Wells books to ke...
