A while back I bought Queen of Babble in the Big City, by Meg Cabot, an author that I've nejoyed for a few years. I've read nearly every one of her books. However, when I began this particular book, the lead character irked me a bit. I suppose I just wasn't in the mood for her ditzy, talkative personality. But I recently picked the book up again, since it has been in my to-read pile, and I found that I am enjoying it quite a lot.
The Queen of Babble finds herself in New York with her new boyfriend, who has quit his high paying career to go back to school to become a doctor. Through a series of events, she finds two jobs, one that pays in cash, and one that pays in experience toward her dream of becoming a wedding gown specialist. What enues is an enjoyably light read, filled with a few giggles, a bit of a shocker or two, and a realization (for this reader, at least) that the Queen of Babble may have a big mouth, but she more than makes up for it with a big heart.
I would recommend it to any fan of chick lit, or for anyone who enjoys Meg Cabot's characters and books, or just wants a light read. it'll be worth it. Trust me. However, if this book does strike your fancy, I recommend reading Queen of Babble first, since it is the beginning of the series.
