Treadmill Week 25 & What I #amreading – Clear Water by Amy Lane

Treadmill Goals:

  • Get on the treadmill (or equivalent exercise) daily
  • Pace is fine at 30 min/mile, although I may up it on occasion
  • Time range between 30 minutes and 1 hour per day
  • Distance 1-2 miles per day
  • Read the chosen book, which I won’t allow myself to read outside of my treadmill time, hopefully motivating me to reach or exceed the above goals (the only exception to this is Saturday nights, if I want to finish off a book so I can start a fresh one for the new week)

Note: Although I will try to avoid them, my daily #amreading updates may or may not contain spoilers, so read at your own risk.

What I #amreading: Clear Water by Amy Lane

My favorite lines this week:

  • SUNDAY: One drink of beer. He swore that was all he had.
  • MONDAY: Patrick opened his mouth in protest, but Fly Bait’s flat, unimpressed stare stopped him.
  • TUESDAY: What in the fuck was coming out of his mouth? Seriously? What was that funky bullshit he was spewing? If any of his students could hear him now, they’d be getting out mops to clean up the bricks they would have just shit on the deck.
  • WEDNESDAY: “—you can’t love a guy you don’t trust. You didn’t trust him, you didn’t love him, you can’t hate him.”
  • FRIDAY: This time, the look Patrick shot him was much less irritable. “It’s a good thing you’re not trying to get in my pants,” he said mildly. “Your technique sucks.”
  • SATURDAY: Patrick took a breath, and it hurt, like holding your breath too long underwater hurt, or breathing through a glass storm would hurt, “What other shit?”

    1. It’s not my favorite. The writing is, of course, good/fun/entertaining, but I had trouble with the believability of the behavior of any adults, let alone professional/educated people, not immediately calling for an ambulance and police. I get that was needed for the storyline, but it wasn’t sold well enough for me. Obviously I’m in the minority, because it’s quite well rated.

      1. Hmm…I can’t remember reacting to that when I read it. It was a long time ago I read it though, maybe I’d be bothered by it today. I might have to reread it to check 🙂

          1. Lol, I will. But I actually read something I liked the other day. “His needs” by Kris T. Bethke. Cute and sweet and 4 stars…even in my slump! 🙂
