I cannot tell you the last time I have laughed so much during a read or had so much FUN reading a delicious book like Psychos. It had me laughing out loud on the train, in my living room by myself and laughing so hard I fell off the treadmill. The pacing of the book is spot on and it is one great one-liner after another told with just the right amount of wit and snark.

Psychos is for anyone who wishes the Shopaholic would just curse already, for anyone who thought Carrie Bradshaw was
3.5 Stars

I've been bombarded lately with books on war and horror novels that are extremely long, therefore it was refreshing to dive into a comedy with just the right amount of pages so as to not overwhelm. Having lived in Los Angeles at one time, I could relate to the truth underneath all the satire and this, at times, created very hearty laughs from me.

Babe Walker is a rich and narcissistic socialite-type who really has nothing better to do with her time but complain about how

As long as you take this book for what it is, it's ridiculously hysterical and entertaining. It was a quick read that made me laugh out loud multiple times.

The first five chapters were okay...then everything took a downhill plunge. I would read a few pages before wincing and putting it off for another day. By the time I hit chapter nine, I was done. Babe Walker went from interesting to downright annoying, vapid, and clueless.

Once a book becomes a burden to read, especially something as chick lit-ish and light as this, I feel no guilt for putting this onto my DNF pile. I will consider suffering my way through the end of a classic, but th

Wow. I don’t even know what to say! I’ve certainly never read anything like this before, that’s for sure. I didn’t realize that it was going to be an 18+ read, but strangely it didn’t bother me so much that it’s not suitable for younger readers. I could relate to one or two truths hidden within the satire, and once I started reading I couldn’t put it down, but mostly I was intrigued by all these characters whose realities are so far removed from my own.

Ummm..this is a hard one. I like some of the snarky comments/commentary that you find with Walkers' writing. The problem is this book had a stupid spin. I will not expose the ending however, it was not a good payoff. I do not feel this second book was as entertaining as the first one. The story opens with Babe coming back from a four month rehab stint for a shopping compulsion. She has a run in with Robert, Josh, and various other random guys (can we say slutty). In true ADD style, she continues ...more

Babe Walker is at it again!! The second installment of "White Girl Problems" is as funny and ridiculous as the first as we follow our deranged and psycho heroine around the world. Plagued by a "stalker" and battling her terrifying alter ego, Babe's journey after rehab goes from zen and healthy to drug induced craziness. Robbed, heartbroken, paranoid, stoned: these are all states in which we see the optimistic Babe. Her global antics are amusing, her new friends diverse to say the least, and her ...more

What is there to say about Babe Walker? She's self involved. Spoiled. Selfish. Vain. Extremely Rich. oh, and she's really ultra fashionable. Would I want to make her my Bestie? No. But as with most books of fiction, did I really want her to win; to overcome some huge life obstacle, and discover an inner strength? Sure. But there won't be any of that with this read bathed in expletives and raunchy sex.Please believe that Babe Walker exists only to be as outrageous and as pretentious as possible. ...more

I read the whole thing in a couple days with the hopes that it would get better. I saw a lot of reviews saying how funny it was, how great it was but no, it was terrible. Just terrible. I felt like the whole story was written about a very rich airhead that I just wanted to slap the entire time I was reading it. Not only that but the whole book kept promoting being skinny, not eating, and how gross it is to be fat. I feel that if you aren't in LA or grew up around the hollywood scene, know your m ...more

It's not quite on the level of "White Girl Problems" but it's still Babe Walker and that makes it still pretty funny.

So Amazing!

Love Babe Walker this book is equal parts disturbing and funny but in a good way. Highly would recommend this book.

Imagine this: You are a socialite. A kind of celebrity. Well known for penning a book about your life that became a bestseller and won a huge book deal. On the outside everyone might think your life is perfect. But perhaps they are underrating you because you think your life is more than perfect, it’s ‘chic’ perfect. Might it be the ‘drug addiction’ that landed you into rehab that makes you view your life as let’s say, Lindsay Lohan’s (without the criminal records)? Or that you might have an ad ...more

Stars: Overall 4 Narration 4 Story 4

I finished this title, and still am confused as to the author’s intent, but Babe Walker presented a vapid, self-absorbed, shallow heroine with a wry sense of humor and a tentative connection to her ‘reality’ as it differs from the real world’s perception of her life. Babe is just wrapping up a stint at rehab for her “shopping addiction”, while little references are made to her cocaine abuse and the possible help, or lack, that was receiv

Psychos is the second installment of the Babe Walker drama. The first book, White Girl Problems, starts the series off with a bang. The sequel doesn't deliver quite the same level of hilarity, but it is interesting and ultimately worth your time (I read it in a total of 3 hours today). A review of White Girl Problems is forthcoming, but I'm doing this one now to beat the publication tomorrow.

I requested a copy of this from Netgalley as I thought it sounded really funny and a lot more light hearted than some books I have read recently. It wasn't until I started that I realised that this is the second of the White Girls Problems books, and haven't read the first one.

I think that not having read the first book might have caused me some issues when it came to 'getting' Babe. Right from the off, I really didn't like her. A rich girl who lives off daddy's

Please don't take this personally; I did not like this book all that much and couldn't finish it. I only made it to page 13 before giving up because Babe was not the type of character I liked--the truth is, from the start, I did not like her, at all. I do feel her character will develop further on in the book but I just could not stand her character:

Okay. I stayed up way too late finishing this book in one sitting, overslept, and I'm hours behind for all the shit I need to do today. And you know what? Totally worth it. I loved Psychos just as much as I did White Girl Problems. Babe Walker continues to be my spirit animal.

So many bad choices, and just as unapologetic as ever.

The ending was brilliant. I laughed all throughout the book again. I want to get into specifics, but, you know, spoilers. S

Before you judge me.....................

Now let me tell you why I read this at all: I was in Mexico, stuck in an apartment, alone and I was Fkin'g DESPERATE for something to do..... so I had this book from the booksale (now left behind in the Mexico City Airport) and I read it!

This book SUCKS, it is so narcissistic and the characters are an odious lot of empty-headed a$$hats, with no redeeming qualities or saving graces.

First let me tell you I haven't laughed and was so annoyed at the same time with a character as with Babe while reading this book. Wonderfully witty, and insanely shallow, exactly how I imagine a too rich, spoiled young adult living the high life would be. Is that good? Or is it stereotyping? I have no idea what is good is that this book read like a breeze and at no point there was anything that threw me off, or made me want to stop reading.
The characters were all very much alive and realistic.

And everybody else is recommending bullshit books about soul searching in India and other soul healing/self improving shit. And I go - huh?

Babe Walker is my spirit animal. This book was too hilarious for words, and captured the essence of the chaos that is a 20-something girls life, especially if you are addicted to shopping so much you have to go to rehab, you find yourself traveling all over the world and getting yourself into really bizarre shit trying to evade your stalker, all the while trying to find yourself and your place in this universe that seems truly baffling at times, all the while trying to find the love of your life ...more

Sometimes you just have days when you really need a good chic lit to brighten your day and cheer you up. Psycho's is perfect for that purpose!

I love books that can have me crying with laughter, and making me look like a right pillock in public, but you don't care because it's just so funny. Psycho's had me laughing all the way through, I rarely find a good book that has me laughing so much, it was such a fun read!

I thought that over all this book was awesome, creative, hilarious and epic! I'm still not sure if any parts of this book actually happened in real life, and if it did, I'm glad that Babe Walker chose to share her life with us. I thought for sure her stalker was Robert/Roberto and was shocked to find out it was Babette! Though there was foreshadowing when Thalia from Russia said the black lipstick was from Babe's bag. I'm glad that Babe didn't settle for Charlie because she would always be unful ...more

2.5-3 stars.

I enjoyed White Girl Problems way more than this. I found Pyscho very predictable, I predicted who the stalker was right from the beginning... Babe was literally acting insane and unreasonable throughout the entire novel (very true to the title). Pyscho focuses on Babe looking for a boyfriend for the most part in between being psycho.

However, I will be continuing with this series. Even though I didn't like this one that much, I really enjoyed

I didn't know this book was a sequel when I requested it. I'll definitely read the first one too. Even though the plot was extremely ridiculous, it was easy to read and pretty hilarious. I finished it in one day. I couldn't relate to Babe Walker at all, and sometimes that makes it hard for me to get into a book, but I loved her and this insane story. In this installment, Babe returns home after a stint in rehab for her shopping and drug addiction, but it hasn't cured her narcissism. She fights w ...more
