Last week while reading blog posts I stumbled on The Perpetual Page Turners post: These Are a Few of My Favorite Things…in Romances which happened to have a GIF of Heath Ledger from 10 Things I Hate About You. I got the need to watch this movie again so spent an afternoon blissfully in late 90’s.
I am admittedly not a fan of contemporary fiction but I absolutely loved the time I spent watching that movie. The humor, fun, romance…just hit all the right places. This is a retelling of The Taming of the Shrew by William Shakespeare and hits on some of my favorite tropes…headstrong girl that wants nothing to do with romance and hate turned to love thing.
It got me thinking–could one of my contemporary readers help me find a book that has the same tone as this movie? And, if you’ve not seen this awesome movie from the 90’s you need to get on that.
