If I want to say that I don't like someone because she talks too much, how should I say it?

Sie redet zu viel nach meinem Geschmack?

Basically I am looking for the right words for "to my liking".

Just put it at the beginning of your sentence:

Nach meinem Geschmack redet sie zu viel!

Some little variation: "Für meinen Geschmack..." is also common – ClickOKtoTerminate Dec 29 '13 at 17:37

You could even go shorter than in the other answer and use the Dative.

Sie redet mir zu viel.

You can often use the simple Dative to say for someone’s liking, which at least to me is pretty close to for me.

In der Kürze liegt die Würze. :-) – alk Dec 29 '13 at 21:51

Oder auch (ohne das so "langweilige" viel):

Sie ist mir zu gesprächig.

Ein bißchen "böser", abwertend:

Sie ist mir zu geschwätzig.
