Book Club: “White Girl Problems”


When I read a book I gravitate towards something that is going to give me a good laugh and a little escape from the stress of everyday life. As you can tell from my Book Club posts so far I don’t necessarily pick up George Orwell’s 1984 when looking for a light read. So when I found the Babe Walker Series through one of the guilty pleasure blogs that I read (ahem, totalsororitymove.comI had to download a copy. I have finished the first book in the series and am excited to start book number two – which I will totally be doing a future Book Club post on!

A little synopsis of the book – Babe Walker, center of the universe, is a painstakingly manicured white girl with an expensive smoothie habit, a proclivity for Louboutins, a mysterious mother she’s never met, and approximately 50 bajillion Twitter followers. But her “problems” have landed her in shopping rehab-that’s what happens when you spend $246,893.50 in one afternoon at Barneys. Now she’s decided to write her memoir, revealing the gut-wrenching hurdles she’s had to overcome in order to be perfect in every way, every day. Hurdles such as:

  • I hate my horse.
  • Every job I’ve ever had is the worst job I’ve ever had.
  • He’s not a doctor, a lawyer, or a prince.
  • I’ll eat anything, as long as it’s gluten-free, dairy-free, low-carb, low-fat, low-calorie, sugar-free, and organic.

This book is witty, clever, absolutely ridiculous, and definitely gave me a good laugh. If that sounds right up your alley give this one a try. Serious readers – I would give this one a pass.

Happy Reading!
