Blue Labryinth

From the Goodreads website:  "A long-buried family secret has come back to haunt Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast...

It begins with murder. One of Pendergast's most implacable, most feared enemies is found on his doorstep, dead. Pendergast has no idea who is responsible for the killing, or why the body was brought to his home. The mystery has all the hallmarks of the perfect crime, save for an enigmatic clue: a piece of turquoise lodged in the stomach of the deceased.

The gem leads Pendergast to an abandoned mine on the shore of California's Salton Sea, which in turn propels him on a journey of discovery deep into his own family's sinister past. 

But Pendergast learns there is more at work than a ghastly episode of family history: he is being stalked by a subtle killer bent on vengeance over an ancient transgression. And he soon becomes caught in a wickedly clever plot, which leaves him stricken in mind and body, and propels him toward a reckoning beyond anything he could ever have imagined..."

This is the 14th book in this series!  Where have I been?  Clearly not reading this series and it's also clear to me I have a lot of catch up to do.

Artichokes

It's really happening.  After fighting rabbits, deer, and who knows what other critters, I have an artichoke.

I'll let it bloom instead of eating it.  

 

I'm also very happy with the sunflowers.  We will be planting even more of them next year.  

 

 

And cosmos too, I think.

Morgan's Quilt

I'm making a quilt for my niece.  She chose the pattern and the fabrics and this is what we have.

 

The pattern is  Equal Rights from Swirly Girls Designs and the fabrics are mostly batiks.

Ready Player One

 Ready Player OneReady Player One by Ernest Cline

From the Goodreads website:  "In the year 2044, reality is an ugly place. The only time teenage Wade Watts really feels alive is when he's jacked into the virtual utopia known as the  OASIS. Wade's devoted his life to studying the puzzles hidden within this world's digital confines, puzzles that are based on their creator's obsession with the pop culture of decades past and that promise massive power and fortune to whoever can unlock them. When Wade stumbles upon the first clue, he finds himself beset by players willing to kill to take this ultimate prize. The race is on, and if Wade's going to survive, he'll have to win—and confront the real world he's always been so desperate to escape."

 

What do I say about this book?  Very light reading, almost to the point of being a young adult book.  If you like online gaming, this is a nice beach read.
