Queen of Babble Gets Hitched - Meg Cabot I managed to get my hands on Queen of Babble Gets Hitched, the final book in the Queen of Babble trilogy by Meg Cabot. This series is one of my favourites by Cabot--I simply love Lizzie Nicholls and her spontaneous personality.

The Queen of Babble is Lizzie Nicholls, a 23-year-old with a passion for wedding gowns and vintage clothes (her dream job is wedding gown restorer) who can't seem to keep her mouth shut. In the first book of the series, Lizzie meets and falls in love with Luke de Villiers, a French prince (nonetheless) with a lot of money but not a lot of heart. In the second book of the series, Quen of Babble in New York, Lizzie moves in with Luke in his New York apartment in order to pursue her dreams of becoming a certified wedding gown specialist. She finds a job a Chez Henri, a wedding gown shop, but things with Luke get worse. As a matter of fact, they break up, because he "can't see her in his future", while Lizzie wants to get married.

At the beginning of Queen of Babble Gets Hitched, Lizzie wakes up next to her ex-boyfriend's best friend (not to mention best friend's ex boyfriend) Chaz, while Luke comes back to her with a marriage proposal. Lizzie's dream has become true. Why, then, the idea of getting married makes her break out in hives? And why does she feel all flustered when she sees Chaz, who is totally against her marrying Luke?

Of course, all will turn out right in the end, and our Lizzie will have her happy ending, together with a much-deserved success in her career. Queen of Babble Gets Hitched is pure chick-lit at its best. With Meg Cabot's irony and gift in telling Lizzie's story, you are guaranteed for a light, fun reading.

I loved this book. I'd recommend to all Cabot fans, and to all the lovers of the chick-lit genre.
