Book Gush: Tweet Cute by Emma Lord

Meet Pepper, swim team captain, chronic overachiever, and all-around perfectionist. Her family may be falling apart, but their massive fast-food chain is booming ― mainly thanks to Pepper, who is barely managing to juggle real life while secretly running Big League Burger’s massive Twitter account.
Enter Jack, class clown and constant thorn in Pepper’s side. When he isn’t trying to duck out of his obscenely popular twin’s shadow, he’s busy working in his family’s deli. His relationship with the business that holds his future might be love/hate, but when Big League Burger steals his grandma’s iconic grilled cheese recipe, he’ll do whatever it takes to take them down, one tweet at a time.
All’s fair in love and cheese ― that is, until Pepper and Jack’s spat turns into a viral Twitter war. Little do they know, while they’re publicly duking it out with snarky memes and retweet battles, they’re also falling for each other in real life ― on an anonymous chat app Jack built.
As their relationship deepens and their online shenanigans escalate ― people on the internet are shipping them?? ― their battle gets more and more personal, until even these two rivals can’t ignore they were destined for the most unexpected, awkward, all-the-feels romance that neither of them expected.


You know those books you stop reading around the 75% mark, because you just cannot face the thought of them ending? Those books that reset the standard in their genre? The ones you expected to like, but after reading know will live rent-free in your head forever, and you won’t even mind–in fact, you’ll shove the furniture aside to make room in case they want to move in an entire series?

Tweet Cute.

N.B: this is not intended as a fair or balanced review, but a totally biased and unabashedly enthusiastic squeal on all the things I loved about the book. This is pure, unrestrained fangirling! 


❗️Mild spoilers ahead!❗️


❤️ It lives up to its name, and then some–this book is as cute as a kitten on a cloud. The romance, the baked goods and their names–hell, just the fact that Pepper and Jack’s couple name is PepperJack. Come on!
❤️ Look, I’m the first to admit I can’t read something unless there’s romance, but I loved that this wasn’t just a romance; there’s so much backstory and building in every other area, too. The motivations for all the characters are clear and understandable, there’s never a second where you don’t believe they’d act the way they’re acting–and neither is there a second where the setting/set-up doesn’t feel vivid and real. Every part of it was 100% convincing, which meant there was nothing to pull me out of the reading experience, and I could just sink into it. Work of art.
❤️ All the characters. Like, the whole cast. Redemption arcs, complicated family relationships, geriatric cameos, and all.


💖 How flawlessly written this book is. Every single sentence works its ass off to express something new and meaningful to these characters, and is written in exactly the way you know their voice to be. The plot is blissfully empty of those annoying ~miscommunication~ things you usually get in a You’ve Got Mail set up. It all flows so quickly and smoothly, you could binge it in one. As mentioned, I had to actively put off reading to not finish it too quickly, because I was not ready to let it go!



🌟Favourite character: I think Pepper just pips Jack to the post–but bonus mention to Jack’s mom, because she is hilarious!
🌟Favourite quote: “Sometimes even shouting into a void feels better than just staring into it.”
🌟Favourite moment: That Scene towards the end, with deli goods and Mean Girls–or its predecessor in the pool!

  1. What a wonderful review – I love when someone loves a book so much that a review is a bunch of gushing. But honestly the whole idea of needing to put a book down because you don’t want it to end? I love when that happens and it’s so rare! Glad you enjoyed this one and I might have to give it a try.

    1. Thank you! Gushes are the only type of review I do now—it’s so great to just shout all the lovely things out into the world 😅 I think it’s still my favourite read of the year so far—I hope you enjoy it if you give it a go!
