    1. HAPPY RELEASE DAY!! For lovers of YA Ed Sheeran – Perfectyoutube/watch?v=1UQzJRules: Reason 1: No one, and I mean NO ONE, delays the start of class.Since second grade Harper Campbell ensured that she was the perfect student!Harper created a list of 537 rules to ensure that she would remain the perfect daughter and student and nothing will get between her future plans or those rule. Since her mother’s death when Harper was in second grade her first rule was her brother Cole, always looking ou [...]


    2. My lessons learned: blurbs can be deceiving and to let go of my unjust prejudices against the YA genre.To be honest, when I got approved for the ARC, I wasn't even sure any more why I'd requested it in the first place. While I'm gradually warming up to contemporary YA, I'm not usually big on hate-to-love romance, and the synopsis sounded so much like petty high school teen drama. The only reason I even started this book when I did was to get it over with.Boy, was I ever wrong. Ingrid Paulson ble [...]


    3. Harper Campbell has 537 rules rules that keep her life in her tiny boarding school very organized and under control. When Sterling Lane transfers to the school however he immediately begins to break Harper's rules putting her at odds of how to deal with the new bad boy. Harper's twin brother Cole ends up rooming with Sterling so Harper needs to come up with a way to keep Sterling away from her brother.

    4. When I opened my package and saw the title of this book, I immediately dropped everything and read this. Read it in one sitting because I couldn’t put it down. THESE are the books I LOOOOOVE ANY hate to love story and I will drop everything to read it. THEY. ARE. THE. BEST types of stories.This is like a 10 Things I Hate About merged with Taming of the Shrew which oddly enough 10 Things I Hate About You is a modern retelling of Taming of the Shrew… this book reminded me of that movie and con [...]


    5. 4.5 stars. Huh, who would've thought? In the beginning I struggled so much with this! Harper wasn't exactly easy to like and I absolutely LOATHED Sterling Lane. I'm glad I stuck with it, though, since it turned out to be so much fun. I thoroughly enjoyed this and I only deducted half a star because I almost gave up on the book after the first few chapters because I struggled so much with it.


    6. I received an unsolicited copy of this book from the publisher There was so much of this book that I liked but I disliked the main character, Harper, so much and that really hindered me from falling in love with Why I Loathe Sterling Lane. This was a fun, light, quick read and I read it within a few days. I liked the plot, the writing style, and I actually loved Sterling. He's a stereotypical pretty boy that makes it his mission in life to annoy the one girl in school who doesn't like him but he [...]


    7. I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book. Thanks to NetGalley and Entangled Publishing for the opportunity to read and review Why I Loathe Sterling Lane by Ingrid Paulson! Harper and her twin brother Cole attend and reside at a boarding school. Their father is their only parent and they're not in a very close relationship with him. Harper has always felt responsible for taking care of her brother. Sterling Lane is a new student with a reputation of getting kicked out of schools. He bu [...]


    8. 4 “10 Things I Hate About You Feels!” StarsARC via NetGalleyThank you, Entangled Teen.This book is addictive, hot and gave me major flashback to late 90’s/beginning of 2000’s. If you were a teenager then, you’ll understand why.Before Heath Ledger became the Joker on that Batman movie, he was a bad boy teenager full of attitude in a movie called Ten Things I Hate About You. I love this movie. Like, LOVE LOVE, so if you haven’t watched it yet, fix it!For me, Sterling Lane took me back [...]


    9. 3.5 starsI am a huge fan of hate to love and after that synopsis, I was excited to started. I struggled with Harper in the beginning. She's so rigid and shrill and it comes across that she's knows better than everyone. No matter what the topic. Cole fell a little flat for me, but I loved Kendall. As for Sterlinghe's sort of a jerk, but it really works in this story. Plus, it's probably the only way anything between Harper and him would have worked. The banter and pranks between Harper and Sterli [...]


    10. 4.5*"You're a disaster. You fascinate me."As much as Harper fascinated Sterling, this book fascinated me. I could not put it down once I started reading! It's slightly bizarre, utterly unique, and totally engaging. I saw someone else mention it and I can't help but completely agree- Why I Loathe Sterling Lane is The Hating Game for the teen-age crowd. Before she even knows who he is, Sterling Lane has thrown Harper Campbell's carefully structured life into an uproard things only get crazier from [...]


    11. This was totally fun and full of things made of win:* boarding school and pranks* genuine loathing with barbed and witty banter and revengeful scheming* Veronica Mars-style sleuthing* steamy, swoony pay-offHarper is so rigid and controlling and watching her unravel and finally feel free to give herself permission to test who she might be (without her self-imposed rules) was really well done. She can come across as judgmental and stand-offish, but I loved the little peeks we got at her vulnerabil [...]


    12. Thank you so much, Entangled Teen, for my advanced review copy of Why I Loathe Sterling Lane by Ingrid Paulson!Why I Loathe Sterling Lane is a book that really surprised me. I did not expect to feel as invested in this book and the main characters as I was. However, it did take me a while to get there. Why I Loathe Sterling Lane is about Harper, her twin brother Cole, and Sterling, the new guy at their boarding school. Harper and Sterling are opposites and quickly become rivals, constantly tryin [...]


    13. **You can see this full review and more at Book Briefs: bookbriefs**Why I Loathe Sterling Lane is a young adult contemporary romance by Ingrid Paulson. Why I Loathe Sterling Lane felt kind of like 10 Things I hate about you, which is a movie that I love. It was a really fun read, and I would love to see more from these characters. Why I Loathe Sterling Lane is a standalone novel, but I really want to see a second book, maybe when Harper and Sterling are in college. That would be a lot of fun.Why [...]


    14. I received a copy of this title to read and review for Wicked Reads 5 Frustrating Stars Young Adult age-range: 14+ due to swearing, drug & alcohol usage, and mild sexual situations (making-out). Ingrid Paulson is a new-to-me author, one I plan on keeping my eye on for future YA novels. Harper is the female half of a pair of fraternal twins who go to boarding school. Harper is definitely a type-A personality. With the death of her mother, the need to keep her twin safe (Cole is a free-spirit [...]


    15. 5 STARS!!I LOVE this book! It is immensely entertaining and smart. It helps that enemies-to-love is one of my most favorite romance tropes, because this book took that trope to such a height that I couldn't imagine a way down. Yet, Ingrid Paulson pulls it off with aplomb. Did I mention that this book is smart? I love when an author doesn't question the intelligence of their young adult readers and creates a non-patronizing story. One that not only entertains its intended audience, but also older [...]


    16. I am so happy that Ingrid Paulson is back to YA with a stellar YA contemporary. I have missed books that are set in a boarding school, so this was an absolute delight to read. Add to that a hate to love romance that was done beautifully, I was thrilled with the execution of this book. Why I Loathe Sterling Knight tells the story of Harper, a staunch rule-follower, who is very much of a determined, and hardworking young woman. Though I know some people will struggle with her from time to time, I [...]


    17. I knew when I read the title this book was going to be for me. I love a hate relationship. Sterling rubs Harper the wrong way from the second she meets him. I mean who does he think he is!Harper follows her own rules which include studying, looking after her brother and keeping on target. She keeps her head in books and her mind on her education. That is until Cole her twin brother gets a new dormitory mate. Sterling is a bad influence right from the start, and Harper is happy to put him in his [...]


    18. **I received an ARC of this book from Entangled Teen in exchange for an honest review**Gilmore Girls and 10 Things I Hate About You fans rejoice! This is the book you’ve been waiting for. With enough wit and sarcasm to fill the Atlantic, it’s Paris Geller and Logan Huntzberger’s love story—and after reading this book, I’ve decided that should have been a thing! Harper Campbell lived by a strict set of rules, 537 to be exact. Her thorny exterior and achingly honest personality complimen [...]


    19. **I received a free ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.4.5 starsI have Feelings™ about Why I Loathe Sterling Lane okay, it's been 5 days and I'm still not over it tbh. Harper Campbell and her twin brother, Cole, attend a boarding school where Harper is the top of their class (thanks to 537 Rules that she lives by) and Cole is the star lacrosse player. Harper's life is running pretty perfectly until she finds out that Cole is short for the money he promised to raise for a new w [...]


    20. Harper Campbell lives by her own rules, she has 537 of them in total and she knows them all by heart. She's a serious student and never gets in trouble. Harper and her twin brother Cole are going to the same small boarding school. Harper's behavior there has always been exemplary, however, when Sterling Lane transfers to her school, after being suspended from many other boarding schools, this changes. Since Sterling's appearance in his life Cole has been in serious trouble and Harper blames Ster [...]


    21. These types of books are like my guilty secret love, they're trashy and full of fluffy romance and characters that I wouldn't usually like if they were in a different book but in this scenario I love. I love both Harper and Sterling who are both completely different people, especially personality wise, Harper sticky to the rules (all 100+ of them) and Sterling does the exact opposite. While this plot is incredibly predictable with the love hate relationship and watching it unfold i :) loved :) e [...]



    22. I was sent this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This book was so cute! I enjoyed every minute of it. I got some serious, Jamie McGuire, Beautiful Disaster vibes.


    23. It's probably safe to say that Harper Campbell has a Type A personality. In fact, in order to cope after the death of her mother, Harper has developed exactly 537 rules that help keep her life orderly and predictable, both academically and socially (not that she has much of a social life to speak of). Her first rule is to always take care of her twin brother, Cole, who seems to have gotten himself into some fairly serious trouble recently. Harper is convinced that the reason Cole is in trouble i [...]


    24. Great cute & fluffy that hits all the high school hate to love notes. Why I Loathe Sterling Lane reminded me of some of my favorite teen movies. In the best way possible. I really enjoyed reading it. But and there is always a but, it reminded me of teen movies. A lot. So while it is possibly not the most innovative, it does have quite a bit of cliche in there after all, it is however very entertaining. I really enjoyed reading it. In fact so much so that I read it in practically one sitting. [...]


    25. This is an awesome story for anyone who loves YA books!!Harper is a Type A rule follower. She has over 500 rules that she follows for how to live her life, has the student handbook of her boarding school memorized, and is quick to point out the infractions of any of her fellow classmates. Needless to say, Harper doesn't really have any friends with the exception of her twin brother, Cole. When Sterling Lane strolls in to Harper's favorite class, late!!, and is disruptive, she starts a list of al [...]


    26. There weren't sufficient words in the English language to describe the width and breadth of my feelings for Sterling Lane - hate, loathe, revile, despise. And if I had a thesaurus on hand, I wouldn't use it to refine the list. I'd hurl it right at his head.This is basicaly how it goes. The banter and pranks between Harper and Sterling were the best part of this book.


    27. I liked this one a lot. It surprised me. It didn't fall for the usual tropes in YA, the popular girl was actually smart and nice and the main character didn't react to certain scenes that are typical in a YA romance. The writing was elegant, the characters were complex, and the story didn't wasn't completely saturated with the romance, but instead held an actual plot.


    28. Two teens at boarding school, duking it out over pranks (and kisses), with a huge scheme in the works? Yes, please.


    29. Per her 537 rules, Harper Campbell keeps her life tidy—academically and socially. But the moment Sterling Lane transfers into her tiny boarding school, her twin brother gets swept up in Sterling’s pranks and schemes and nearly gets expelled. Harper knows it’s Sterling’s fault, and to protect her brother, she vows to take him down. As she exposes his endless school violations, he keeps striking back, framing her for his own infractions. Worst of all, he’s charmed the administration into [...]
