Has anyone read this series? I recently got the audio downloads from the library to listen to while driving, walking, etc but not sure how I'm going to like them. I'm way older than the main character though I loved Cabot's Heather Wells series and that character was younger than me as well. But, well, this character after getting through part 1 of 5 just seems stupid. I can't believe she's tolerated what she has and seems like she's gonna continue to tolerate it. dunno..wondering if I should stick with it or cut loose and start a different audio..any suggestions? I'm really hoping she ditches this guy and improves...does she improve in this book and the next ones or keep making the same mistakes? actually it sounds like I'm reading my own friggin' life or something...geez... :-)

I love the Queen of Babble series, but I know it wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea. I really love Cabot's writing so I am on the prowl for everything she has written. I hope you enjoy her series!

well I loved  loved loved the Heather Wells series she did and that's the main reason I downloaded these..but I guess this dingbat girl just sounds too much like myself! I'll probaby keep listening and see how it goes..if I had thebook I'd probably be skimming through and checking out the end then going back to either reading it or tossing but not that skille doing it with audio!

well, I fi nished listening to Queen of Babble while driving away from the Houston area due to stupid hurricane Ike...and I enjoyed it! it was good to listen to while driving and got my mind off things..I relaxed considerably once she came to her senses after part 1. I also downloaded the next 2 and one's a wedding..ok so someone can pm me and spoil things..who does she end up with LOL!

I read the first book and found Lizzie super sweet.  I did get the second book from the library but didn't read it before it was due.

Hey, that's cheating! You've got two more books to read before you figure out who she ends up with! FTR, I liked the second two better than the first one.

Can someone list all the books of this series? I have the first, and now (THANKS COLLEEN!) I have Queen of Babble Gets Married. But I see 2 of them on my wish list, but I think they may be the same, but with a different cover. I want to make sure I get them all. Thanks.

I liked this series. I thought that the first book was way more YA than chick lit though and perhaps that was why I was willing to give her a pass for being so clueless. By the end of the trilogy though, it's definitely chick lit to me!

I've just ordered the first book in this series and was pleased to see the majority of you girls gave it good reviews. I really look forward to reading them for myself!
