The Hating Game

I don't know what was wrong with me. Everyone recommended this book back when it came out so I bought and downloaded it like any sane person. But then I never read it. I don't know why I put it off so long and I hate myself a little for it, because this book rocked my world.

It was adorable and funny and I was mush by the end. I love these characters so much and it was just the sweetest thing ever. So many feels. And now they're talking about making it into a movie?! I am so here for that!

If you haven't read The Hating Game by Sally Thorne yet you are missing out!

"Nemesis (n.) 1) An opponent or rival whom a person cannot best or overcome.

2) A person’s undoing

3) Joshua Templeman

Lucy Hutton and Joshua Templeman hate each other. Not dislike. Not begrudgingly tolerate. Hate. And they have no problem displaying their feelings through a series of ritualistic passive aggressive maneuvers as they sit across from each other, executive assistants to co-CEOs of a publishing company. Lucy can’t understand Joshua’s joyless, uptight, meticulous approach to his job. Joshua is clearly baffled by Lucy’s overly bright clothes, quirkiness, and Pollyanna attitude.

Now up for the same promotion, their battle of wills has come to a head and Lucy refuses to back down when their latest game could cost her her dream job…But the tension between Lucy and Joshua has also reached its boiling point, and Lucy is discovering that maybe she doesn’t hate Joshua. And maybe, he doesn’t hate her either. Or maybe this is just another game."
