I got the invite to be part of the blog tour for Tweet Cute by Emma Lord months before I actually had the chance to read the story. I loved the premise and went I finally got to the story, I devoured it. I’m pretty sure it’ll be taking a spot of my top 10 books of 2020.
Before we get to my top 5 reasons to read Tweet Cute, let’s check out the book.
A fresh, irresistible rom-com from debut author Emma Lord about the chances we take, the paths life can lead us on, and how love can be found in the opposite place you expected.
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.
Sounds good, right?
Top five reasons to read Tweet Cute:
- the main characters — I loved Pepper and Jack. I was thrilled to get POV from both of them, especially as their relationship started to grow.
- the desserts — this book is filled with so many yummy sounding baked goods and I’m not-so-secretly hoping there will be a few recipes included in the finished book.
- Jack’s mom — there are parents present in the story in varying degrees, but Jack’s mom was fantastic for so many reasons. I’ll let you find those reasons on your own.
- the desserts — in case I’ve been ambiguous, the treats deserve another mention.
- the last chapter — not so much an epilogue, but an “in the future” chapter and it’s just perfection
