The Ultimate Reading Challenge #5 – Gift A Copy Of Your Favourite Book To A Friend/Family Member!

Hi all!

Welcome back to The Ultimate Reading Challenge! I outlined in 2022 how the new series will work here, so check that out before progressing further. For my fifth challenge, I gifted The Hating Game by Sally Thorne to my mother. I LOVE this book mum did too. I am also going to share a picture of my personal signed copy, thoughts on the novel/movie adaptation and what my prize was for completing the prompt. Without further ado, let’s get into it!

Spoilers Ahead! 

Plot: ‘The Hating Game’ by Sally Thorne:


Resolving to achieve professional success without compromising her ethics, Lucy embarks on a ruthless game of one-upmanship against cold and efficient nemesis Joshua, a rivalry that is complicated by her growing attraction to him.


Review: ‘The Hating Game’ by Sally Thorne:

 The Hating Game is everything you could ever want or need in a book. If you are down, or in a slump, read it. You’ll fly through it and be so happy by the end. It’s saucy, steamy and so damn good. It blew me away. I just can’t even describe what makes it so amazing, but it has one of my favourite tropes: enemies to lovers. Hot, Hot, Hot!

I am so grateful to my friend for getting me a signed copy from an event where the author was present – see below.

Review: ‘The Hating Game’ Film Adaptation:

I really don’t have much to say about the film adaptation, because it was identical to the book. The casting was excellent. Lucy Hale played the perfect Lucy Hutton. Everything I had pictured in my head whilst reading the novel was translated onto screen flawlessly. I am obsessed!

Prize For Completing The Challenge: 

As you can see below, my prize for completing the prompt were these adorable gift tags. One has a pile of books and the other a cat with glasses. I am definitely going to use them next time I wrap a present.

Thank you so much for reading! I will see you next month for a new bookish challenge!

Peace & Love xoxo
