I have never read Taming of the Shrew, but I’ve seen the next best thing (at least to a kid of the 90’s)–10 Things I Hate About You.  The last time I saw the movie was on the plane ride from NY to California last year (2014 for anyone reading this after New Years) and it gets me every time.  This first clip (yes, I’m giving you two again), has become iconic: Heath Ledger’s Patrick serenading Julia Stiles’s Kat with Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons’s Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You.  (Anyone else wonder how quickly that school band learned the song?)


The second clip is from the end of the movie, after Kat has found out about the truth behind Patrick’s actions and has realized that she loves him anyway.

Sigh.  Here’s hoping I can rent this on iTunes tonight.


Romance novels have been a part of my life since I was 14 years old and one of my neighbors dropped off a laundry basket full of Harlequins. From that day on, my nose was always in a book. I started my first review site in 2013, but took some time off for personal issues in 2018.
