This week's (month's? Year's?) review book is Meg Cabot's Queen of Babble. I'd actually read this book before, but this time listened to the audio book. My kids thought I was even more insane when I laughed uproariously with me headphones on than they do when I sing and dance with them on...
This isn't Meg's YA-- it's definitely a "grown-up" novel. Very funny, sweet, and in the chick-lit tradition, written in first person from our up and coming young heroine (who has a habit of getting herself in sticky situations, usually brought on by her babbling). Her boyfriend Andy will remain in my mind forever, the tacky dude who sent her a picture "of his bare ass" and showed up at the airport to get her in "a red leather jacket with epaulettes." If I had copy of this book (I borrowed the audio file from the library), it'd have a place of honor on my bookshelf, and I fully intend to read the other Queen of Babble books which follow. Thus, I proudly bestow upon this novel Piper Patter's highest book honor: Get Your Own Copy.
Romance is sexy!
