I am so honored to be a part of this blog tour! This was a pretty highly anticipated read for me, and I loved it! It definitely lived up to the hype!
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.
Thank you to Netgalley and Wednesday Books for a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and feelings are my own.
Four stars to this adorable modern teen romance! I fell in love with this book so quickly. Both Pepper and Jack were instantly likable and fun. At the time, I wasn’t on twitter. I honestly just made one 4 days ago! (follow me @mithah_reads!) Even though this book focuses on their twitter war, I still understood what was going on! You don’t have to be a twitter genius AT ALL to appreciate all the back and forth and humor! There were also shout outs to other social media platforms that I really enjoyed. Another thing I noticed was that I don’t think Facebook was mentioned! I feel like younger kids aren’t really on Facebook – which makes me feel old. Welcome to 30, am I right?
One of my favorite tropes was featured in Tweet Cute – friends to lovers! I enjoyed seeing them grow from acquaintances to something more. They had so much in common – they just had to be willing to realize it! Both were heading down paths they didn’t necessarily want to be on. These paths were forced on them by their parents. But with each other’s help, they realized what they really wanted in life and made it happen!
Pepper and her sister had a baking blog that got a lot of page time. Pepper baked all the time. She had treats for being happy, being sad, even apology treats! I used to bake all the time. Reading Tweet Cute made me miss it and want to start again! I got major inspo! Maybe I’ll try to replicate one of the treats from the book! I’ll keep up updated.
Tweet Cute had dual POV, which I LOVE! It’s so interesting to me to see what both Jack and Pepper are thinking about the same situations. They were both so witty. I wish I was just a fraction as witty as they are.
Read Tweet Cute if you want a light-hearted, fluffy read. It was such a quick read, too!
