Ten Things I Hate about You by David LevithanBuzzword A Thon
Golden Girls Read A Thon: Read a book that includes female friendships
When I was 13 years old 10 Things I Hate About You was my favorite movie. I think I saw it in the theater at least 3x. I loved it! This movie was the first time I ever saw Heath Ledger and it was love at first sight. I was also still nursing my crush on Andrew Keegan(what ever happened to him) and I thought Julia Stiles was the coolest. Im tempted to rewatch the movie but I fear I wont enjoy it as much as an adult.
If Im being honest this book is probably a 2 star read but my nostalgia for the movie caused me to up the rating. 10 Things I Hate About You is a retelling of William Shakespeares The Taming Of The Shrew. Bianca the most popular sophomore at Padua High wants to date but cant until her older sister Kat does and Kat has no interest in dating or parties. So Cameron one of the 2 boys vying for Bianca comes up with a plan to get Kat to go out with school bad boy Patrick.
Despite the condensed and rushed nature of the book it did make me want to watch the movie again. If for no other reason than to see a young Heath Ledger.

10 Things I Hate About You
In the story, new student Cameron Gordon-Levitt is smitten with Bianca Oleynik and, in order to get around her father's strict rules on dating , attempts to get bad boy Patrick Ledger to date Bianca's ill-tempered sister, Kat Stiles. The film is titled after a poem written by Kat about her bittersweet romance with Patrick. Much of the filming took place in the Seattle metropolitan area , with many scenes shot at Stadium High School in Tacoma. Released March 31, , 10 Things I Hate About You was number two at the domestic box office during its opening weekend, behind only The Matrix , and was a moderate financial and critical success. It was a breakthrough role for Stiles, Ledger, and Gordon-Levitt, all of whom were nominated for various teen-oriented awards. Ten years later, the film was adapted into a television series of the same title , which ran for twenty episodes and featured Larry Miller reprising his role as Walter Stratford from the film.
Teen film 10 Things I Hate About You was released in theaters on March 31, , which means this year marks the beloved film's 20th anniversary. The movie is full of icons — including Julia Stiles as Kat Stratford and the late Heath Ledger as Patrick Verona , the role that made him an eternally beloved star — and has been held up as an enduring teen comedy for its discussion of ever-relevant topics like sexual politics and feminism. Now that you know it's 10 Things I Hate About You's 20th anniversary , you're probably desperate to watch the film on repeat. But once you've relived the antics at Padua High a few times, I've got some modern YA book recommendations that will practically be screaming "I Want You To Want Me" at you when you read their synopses. These reads are sure to give you the same feels as your favorite teen film, with new stories and characters you'll love just as much as your Prada backpack.
