    One thought on “The Love Interest”

    1. I don’t exist to teach her a lesson, and it irks me that she thinks labeling me is okay now. Like, by liking guys, I automatically take on that role in her life. That I’m suddenly a supporting character in her story rather than the hero of my own is a rough, rough thing to hold your most anticipated book of the year in your hands and feel so damn disappointed @past me: why did u gotta hype it so much ??This book could have been so good and made so many good points and instead it all just fel [...]

    2. I'm going to go on a little tangent to explain my feelings on The Love Interest.I am a lover of fiction, fantasy and adventure. I love to live in other worlds and believe in the impossible. Therefore, my ability to suspend disbelief is pretty darn good. I can be convinced that a world exists where magic killer unicorns walk the land and wreak havoc with their magic killer unicorn powers. Easy. Where my suspension of disbelief falters, however, is in the details. The hows and the whys. If, say, s [...]

    3. Well, I guess I’ve finally found something i was more disappointed in than myself: this book.My actual review of everything in the love interest:um?????????????terrible???????????¯\_(ツ)_/¯??????????? I'm honestly so fuelled by rage and bitterness and a 100% pure sodium chloride outlook on everything but I’m not going anywhere so I’m just typing this review very aggressively (actually, if I hadn’t wanted to draw attention to myself, i would've probably been SCREAMING right now and my [...]

    4. I'm thinking a 3.5, it was going to be a 3 but that epilogue did something to me. Honestly, I wanted this to be my favorite book ever, and I amincrediblydisappointed to report that it is not. RTC-----------------------------------Author: So here's my idea two boys are supposed to fight for a girlone is a bad boy, one is the boy next door, the girl can only choose one. Readers: *sips tea* I see sounds familiar Author: But instead thetwo boys fall for each otherReaders:

    5. my future child: i'm so sorry i disappointed you momme (remembering the love interest): oh sweetie don't you fucking worry

    6. This was SO CUTE AND FUN. I'm smiling like an idiot right now.I'm telling you, if you don't take this book seriously, you'll enjoy it and you'll have a good time (I mean, I think that the actual book doesn't take itself seriously xD). It was a light read and I had fun, what can I say? I get the reasons behind the bad reviews, and I agree with them in many aspects, but still I enjoyed this :). It was not remarcable nor memorable, it was more like a feel-good book.

    7. 2.5—where the half star stands for “Metafiction. Metafiction everywhere,” and the second one for “I know your message is important and I'm trying to reward you for it even though you are so trashy and I'm not even saying that affectionately.”“I may as well start whining about how nice guys never get the girl, so I shut my mouth.”ON THE LOVE INTEREST'S IDENTITY CRISIS•At the beginning of this semester, one of the first things my professor of English literature told us was, “You [...]

    8. My written interview with Cale Dietrich can be found here. A Love Interest is who I am, and it's all I'll ever be. Questioning that, or letting other people know that I'm questioning it, will result in my death. —CadenThe Love Interest is one of the most engaging books I've ever read. I'm really impressed that this is Cale Dietrich's debut novel. Although it does have a minor flaw or two, I am more than willing to give it five stars because it made me have countless moments of nerdy introspect [...]

    9. 3.75/5 stars "Like, wouldn't it be better to send us in when we're a bit older? No one finds the love of their life while they're a teenager.““You haven't read any YA novels recently, have you?" He's something you probably don't know about me. I love low budget movies. Anything with far-fetched plots, bad acting, and poorly done CGI is the closest thing I have ever gotten to drugs. I love low budget movies so much, that when I watch those box office superhero movies that everyone and their i [...]

    10. 1 StarOverview: Ugh. I was so excited for this, too. A typical boy/girl/boy love triangle, where the boys complicate everything by falling for each other? Like yes plz. But instead, here’s this rant.(BR with the lovely Kainat who is welcome to spam me with Parks and Rec gifs any time. )Pros:This idea is fun. It’s there was hype and so many of us wanted to read it. As a whole, this book is very aware of YA tropes, and does creatively twist stereotypes around. This actually handled the LGBT+ e [...]

    11. Because we are both living with limited time, and life should be lived while we have the chance WITH THIS BIG SHIT AGAINThank you Sana for letting me send you like 274038483 messages on how stupid and dumb I think Juliet is until 3 AM and thank you for ranting with me. I appreciate how you understand my level of disappointment and anger.I'm so fucking upset, again. When I first read the description for this, I was so ready and looking forward to it. I was like "2 boys fight for a girl but they e [...]

    12. HAPPY BOOK BIRTHDAY TO THIS GORGEOUS BOOK!!! "A particularly important young woman has shown signs that she’s ready to select a partner, so two of you have to be sent in right away. We’re looking for a boy-next-door Nice and a mysterious, tortured-soul Bad.” "Aren’t they always?"4.5 stars!!If you weren't already so excited for this book, YOU NEED TO BE! ADD THIS TO YOUR TBR ASAP THIS BOOK IS GREAT. It's such a cool concept and it was executed amazingly. The first 90% of this book is comp [...]

    13. "Wouldn't it be better to send us in when we're a bit older? No one finds the love of their life while they're a teenager.""You haven't read any YA novels recently, have you?"So say the characters in this deliciously meta book that pokes fun at so many YA tropes, while somehow still making you swoon over them. Caden, a Nice, has to compete against Dyl, a Bad (complete with leather jacket and sob story to account for his jerky behaviour), to win the affections of their Chosen. The winner gets to [...]

    14. "If you caught your Chosen kissing your rival, what would you do?"I lower my eyes and bring on the tears. When I feel them behind my eyelids I look up at him, my entire body radiating hurt. I stare at him for a moment, drop my mouth a fraction, then turn my head away. "I'd look at her like that. Then I'd walk away. Next time I saw her she'd probably apologize if I were still in the running, so I'd tell her she doesn't ever have to explain herself to me, and that I only responded in that manner b [...]

    15. HAPPY BOOK BIRTHDAY TO THIS MASTERPIECEseriously pick this up NOW if you can get your hands on it. I received an eARC, but this in no way impacts my views.The Love Interest is a book that has me still screaming about it 12 hours later. It is a book that had me screaming at my phone, screaming at myself and crying. It is a book that defied all expectations I had for it, which were mildly low. I didn't want to go in expecting the best, but this is one of the best books I have ever read. Cale Dietr [...]

    16. BR with THE LITTLE SHITHEAD who sent me 215465156.0036337 messages about how awkward and dumb Juliet is.Dear friends on ,My sincerest apologies for not listening to y'alls when you said this book was a big fat load of bullshit and disappointment. My apologies for ignoring everyone, going ahead, reading this and then coming back to complain to everyone on how fucking CRINGY AND AWKWARD THIS WAS.Sincerely, Me, lmao.LET'S GET ROIGHT INTO THE NEWS: ((ALSO SPOILERS AHEAD))This book gave a very promis [...]

    17. 4.5 stars. That was just hilariously brilliant. I was super hesitant to pick it up because I was looking forward to it so much and then heard it was a letdown, but I ended up laughing the whole way through.First of all, I think I read this way differently than others did. I thought that the fact that certain parts weren't quite realistic was the point of this like it was kind of meant to be a parody? It completely felt and sounded like a combination of SO many other YA books (mostly the dystopia [...]

    18. RTCLet this buddy read begin with my girls,Kaylin and Elise!Aw hell! I think this book is fucking genius. A detailed explanation is coming in full review.

    19. All aboard the MS Disappointment, I'm the fucking captain of this shipdisclaimer: This book disappointed me so much that this turned into a Roast Session, I promise I'm a nice person and I don't really want to drag anyone (i don't even know how to trash books i've never done this before) so pls be nice to me, idk how to handle haters once someone told me i should calm down and i cried for 3.4 days _______________________let's begin.I need you to understand that I don't e v e r rate anything less [...]

    20. Nopenopenopenopenopenopenopenopenopenopenopenopenopenopenopenopenopenopenopenopenope.I can't believe how disappointing this book was. Honestly, I didn't have overly high expectations; however, I was curious. I felt like it had potential and so I decided to read it. Despite the hype and the fact that it's been 2-3 days since it's been released, there's already lots of mixed reviews. I think it's going to be one of those books that'll have very mixed reviews: you either love it or you hate it.Let [...]

    21. I can't take it, so DNF at page 130. Great premise, poor execution. I don't know if I'll ever actually review this because all my feelings on it are so lukewarm. Feel free to head on over and watch Em drag it to hell and back if that's your thing. The problem with this book is it can't decide whether it's a parody novel or a book or both. This is an excellent parody novel. It is not a good actual book.In terms of being an actual novel, Dietrich has good ideas. Thematic conclusions about lgbt+ ch [...]

    22. Start the fangirling now. I was fortunate enough to read an early copy of this book, and I couldn't put it down. For all of you wondering if this is "a love triangle turned on its head, where the special girl becomes the third wheel between two guys, who fall for each other instead." Yes, yes it is -- and it's so much more.Full disclosure: the author and I are with the same literary agency, which is how I got my hands on an early copy. It has not affected my review in any way. It's definitely ve [...]

    23. BR with my friends (I mean I only actually talked about this book with a couple of people while reading it but yeahhhh I just don't want anyone to feel excluded) <3 While you anxiously wait for my review you should read this analysis because it talks a bit more about the meta aspects of this book that I feel a lot of people might have missed (I mean, that's perfectly fine and I don't want to come off as "the way I read this is The Right Way and you're all wrong". I get it that reading this bo [...]

    24. If you've ever found yourself falling in love with someone who seems a little too perfect, consider the possibility you're the target of a Love Interest.Love Interests are young men and women who are trained in the art of seduction at a secret compound, the LIC. It's all very hush-hush, including how they obtain the children they train in the first place. Boys are divided into Nices and Bads. When the LIC obtains a high profile female target, they send in one of each to act out a perfectly chore [...]

    25. you know when you see a big and pretty red apple and you want to taste it so bad, but then you take a bite and it's rotten on the insidethis book is that applertc^updthis was a lie and review is not coming

    26. 2.5Yep, this was very disappointingJOR SPOILERS (also sorry if this is too long, my brain is a mess rn)but really, spoilers everywhereI really wanted to like this book, I really did. But it just did not work for me.The bad thing is, that when I started reading it, I was invested. I mean, the plot was very promising, and the characters had so much room to grow, this book could've been great. memorable, even. But noooooo, the characterization, writing and plot had to be badly executed, because I g [...]

    27. Teens transformed into Young Adult tropes? A play on M/F/M love triangles that ends with the boys getting together? A mysterious organization that creates teenage spies? All that sounds like a recipe for a stellar new Young Adult novel, right?And it is what The Love Interest had. However, The Love Interest failed to make use of all of its unique qualities, ultimately suffering from a lack of character depth and a plot that essentially goes nowhere.Cale Dietrich's debut novel, The Love Interest, [...]
