What did everyone think of the Hating Game movie? I'll admit to being a little wary at first, and there were parts that didn't 100% work for me, but I ended up having a great time. Which is what I went in for, so success. https://youtu.be/LXRVigoT3RY

Thanks for the tag @TheAromaofBooks

I‘m not a big recommender, mostly because I read a lot of romance. However Here goes…

Fingersmith - one of the biggest “@$&%” moments in a book.

Hating Game - witty banter and a lot of fun.

Ready Player One - one amazing wild ride.

Any of Molly Harpers paranormal romances. They are light and funny and I go to them anytime I need a pick me up.

TheAromaofBooks Love The Hating Game & RP1 - I have a couple of Harper's romances in the queue but haven't gotten to them yet. I have to be in just the right mood for paranormal haha 2w

this book totally had me hooked, i finished it within a day. I absolutely loved both the characters in this and I also loved the enemy to lovers troupe.5/5 if you‘re into romcoms.

This book is fantastic for the first third or so. Two executive assistants who constantly bicker are competing for the same job. I laughed so much at the witty, cutting humor describing office life, team building, and annoying coworkers. Then the book slows way down and becomes a little dramafest as the two competitors realize they are attracted to each other, and the heroine becomes a sadly desperate mess lusting after this guy. Once the 👇

LitStephanie romance plot plays out, the author doesn't even bother to tie up the other loose ends of the plot, one of which is as important as the romance. It's like she forgot or got tired. 3w

Cute but definitely enjoyed Second First Chances even more, likely because of the elderly subcharacters in that one. Already scheduled a streaming movie night for The Hating Game and looked up the trailer-- noticed huge glitches in casting with Lucy's eye color not matching up but...

I was quickly grabbed up by this story and held hostage. I could not put it down. It went a bit off the rails with Lucy's anxiety but I kind of loved that too. Anxiety disorders deserve the representation. I don't know why I held off on this book for so long, it was so good!

This was so cute. I loved the book when it came out. The cast is charming and it sticks pretty closely to the book, as far as I can remember having read it a couple years ago. Delightfully this movie has Christmas in it so +6 points for #mistletoemaniacs #wintergames2021

4¾⭐This is all about the fine line between love and hate and how easily one can confuse the two. Lucy and Josh are such a cute couple whether they are fighting with each other or loving on each other…plus their witty banter was so much fun. Katie Schoor did a wonderful job with the delivery of that banter as well. I should have read this sooner but I hate cartoon covers which is what this originally had...so I kept passing it up.

Wanted to read this one soon, as the movie is coming out in a couple of weeks. Super cute rom-com, with your typical enemies to lovers trope. The banter between Lucy and Josh was pretty funny at times. Fairly quick read. Will definitely read more by the author!

I found this to be a fun little rom-con that didn‘t take itself too seriously! Joshua and Luce were fun characters and I did actually laugh out loud a few times. Yes it‘s trope is enemies to lovers and they did do the love hate rumba but still it was a fun book. Sometimes a book can just be and doesn‘t always have to have to have a deep message. That‘s what this one was. Fun and lighthearted.

There were a couple of cute and funny parts, but honestly most of it was just so far-fetched and cringey. There was too much love-to-hate-to-love over and over again, even when it didn‘t make any sense to start hating each other again. The handful of fun parts saved this from being a complete bail or DNF for me

Definitely a well worn troupe of enemies-to-lovers. However, the author freshened it up a bit. I could see this actually happening in real life. I thought the chacters of Lucy and Joshua were childish and petty but it worked well with the plot. A good debut novel. 5⭐

I wasn‘t rly into this book but it wasn‘t terrible. If you like the enemies to lovers trope, and work settings, you‘ll prob enjoy it. Just kinda bland tbh. I‘d have finished it if I was at a nicer place, but at the time I needed a GOOD book to cheer me up… this wasn‘t it 🤷🏽‍♀️

I‘m sorry, I couldn‘t like either of the characters! Hate to love is such a fun trope, but Lucy and Joshua weren‘t it for me. Both were too childish and I felt weird reading the flirting: felt too forced. The moments are cute, but if I think about it for too long, it‘s uncomfortable to act like that. Plus whatever tension that was supposed to build up was lost on me in the 6th chapter. I only got through the first 80 pages till I gave up.

1/5🌟

I feel like I'm late to the party as always - last person to read this book but boy.. What a book 😍 So funny and cute and adorable and in some parts heart-warming and heart-breaking at the same time. I felt like I was being hugged and cuddled (and sometimes a bit more...😁) while reading that book. I will probably start right over and read it one more time to get that feeling back

My second completed book for the #july4thweekendreadathon !

I LOVED this book and was so happy to see it would be turned into a movie! I can‘t wait!

Do Lucy and Josh really hate each other or is something my else going on ?

Predictable but worth the read!

(PS I‘m up to 13 hours for the Readathon! Coming close to the end!)

Rereading for romance book club and having much different reactions this go-round, which is interesting. It‘s still early but even with enemies to lovers as a fave I‘ve mostly been like “this is pettier and meaner than I remember”. Still gonna watch the heck out the movie when it comes out and I think there will be some good discussion.

Annie1215 This is one of my faves and I am embarrassingly hyped for the movie lol 🤦🏼‍♀️ 9mo
mdemanatee @Annie1215 yess!! I def loved it too. I think there are moments I‘m reading as more problematic with both more age and the fact that the romance genre moves so fast (like I legit didn‘t remember the boss nickname). But the tension is still 👌 I am a letter nervous for her new one after not liking her last book though 😬 9mo

I didn't love this book from page 1, but I was definitely 😍 over it by the end. My ONLY critique is that I think Lucy and Josh didn't start actually talking about their issues until way too late in the story, but the ending was still believable, so it worked! #romcom #contemporaryromance

monalyisha I unexpectedly really loved this, too! 9mo
kissmehardy @monalyisha I can't believe it took me this long to pick up! 9mo
monalyisha @kissmehardy I only read it because it was gifted to me in a swap. I would have continued avoiding it forever. Hate seeing that “CEO” acronym in a blurb. 😅🙈 9mo

Oh! I forgot to review this!

Reading it was a whirlwind; a fever dream. I stayed up until 2am finishing it & then felt like shit at work the next day because I‘m 35 & I can‘t DO that. 😅

Needless to say, I enjoyed it! Thanks @Annie1215 for sending it my way! I‘ll be honest: I‘d been avoiding it because of the word “CEO” in the blurb. 🙈 But it was sweet, & hot, & funny, & I loved the specific ways in which the characters “saved” one another. 💞

monalyisha PLUS, the office backdrop is actually a Publishing House, so there‘s more book nerdery involved than corporate-speak. 11mo
Johanna414 Good to know - I've been hesitant to read it for the same reason! 11mo
