True Grit by Charles Portis
True Grit

Beth pdx, January 1, 2013

This was my favorite book that I read in 2012, even though it's an older book. The Coen brothers movie was fantastic too!

True Grit by Charles Portis
True Grit

Beth pdx, January 1, 2013

Best book I read this year, even though it's an older book (not published this year), was True Grit. The young female narrator has such a strong character and personality. The story is engrossing. The prose is perfect. Loved it!

I Suck at Girls by Justin Halpern
I Suck at Girls

Beth pdx, August 4, 2012

By the author of "Sh%*&t My Dad Says," this funny book continues the hilarious conversations with Justin Halpern's intelligent yet profane father, only this time all centered on the topic of Justin's love life. There's maybe a little too much swearing and too many details about Justin's digestive issues (told with humor though of course), but otherwise an easy read that will make you laugh out loud. I especially laughed at the time he first failed a driver's license test at age 16; my daughter's test is coming up this month, I hope she does better than Justin did!

The Girls of Murder City: Fame, Lust, and the Beautiful Killers Who Inspired Chicago by Douglas Perry
The Girls of Murder City: Fame, Lust, and the Beautiful Killers Who Inspired Chicago

Beth pdx, January 19, 2012

This was a fun non-fiction book and my favorite read of this year. I love the musical "Chicago," and this book gave more history about the real-life murder cases that inspired that play. Also I learned about women who were pioneers in the field of newspaper reporting, a field that was a real "boys club" at the time.
