I'm a bad maintainer....

Sorry I haven't been posting, guys. I know I kind of let this community go, but I figure we could give it another start. The book club thing I was talking about won't work out for me right now, but it very well could later this year, so let's keep that in mind.

I just finished The Twelfth Card, by Jeffery Deaver.

It was a forensics crime novel featuring Detective Lincoln Rhyme, and it centers around a teenage girl in Harlem who's digging into the history of one of her ancestors, who is a former slave. There is someone out to get her, and we'll leave it to Lincoln Rhyme, Amelia Sachs, Lon Sellitto, and more to find out why! If you like Deaver's other books (as well as all those crime scene shows on TV), you'll definitely like this one. There are plot twists upon plot twists, and a few humongous, "WTF, no they did NOT just do that!!!!!" moments, just as we would excpect from the author who gave us The Bone Collector, which is also a major motion picture starring Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie.

Okay, enough of my craptastic book-reviewing skills....
What has everyone else been reading over the summer? Let's all post pictures of the book's covers, if we can find them (google images is your friend). ^_^
