I received an advanced copy of TWEET CUTE by Emma Lord from Wednesday Books. This was an adorable YA rom-com that was CHEESY…not in, like, a cliché way (it was actually super fresh and unique) but in an ooey, gooey, add-ten-pounds-to-your-waistline kinda way.
Thank you Wednesday Books for the copy and the chance to review this wonderful book!

Here is my complete review of Tweet Cute by Emma Lord:
AUTHOR: Emma Lord
GENRE: Young Adult | Romance
RELEASE DATE: January 21, 2020
PUBLISHER: Wednesday Books
SUMMARY: “Is this…is this an app for finding emergency mac and cheese?” “Like Spider-Man, I am only looking out for the citizens of New York.”
Pepper and Jack; Jack and Pepper; Pepperjack—two wildly different people who get thrown together in the most unexpected way.
Pepper is the straight A–getting, SAT-busting, swim team–captaining go-getter of Stone Hall Academy, the elite Upper East Side private school she attends.
Jack is the loud, gangly, milk-through-the-nose class clown (and lesser half of a identical twin duo) who also attends Stone Hall Academy.
Throughout their four years in school together, Pepper and Jack never had much interaction, other than Jack acting as a thorn in Pepper’s side with his not-so-loving nicknames like Pepperoni and Goodie Two-Shoes. But when Pepper’s mom’s outrageously successful burger chain, Big League Burger, starts going head-to-head on Twitter against a local deli, Girl Cheesing, the two get pretty cozy pretty quick. You see, Jack’s family owns that little local deli, the one that’s claiming Big League Burger stole their grilled cheese recipe and is trying to peddle it off as their own.
And the masterminds behind the Twitter accounts? You guessed it. Pepper is the snarky and witty voice behind Big League Burger’s account and Jack is the just as snarky and just as witty voice behind Girl Cheesing’s account.
To thicken the plot, and the multiple dessert batters spattered throughout the story (seriously, are you drooling yet?), Jack and Pepper are falling for each other…but they have no idea it’s the other one. Both of them have struck up a relationship with an anonymous pen pal on an app called Weazel that lets the users interact one-on-one with each other, all anonymously.
The more heated the Twitter war becomes, the more viral it gets, upping the
steaks stakes for Pepper and Jack as their families get dragged in, their future dreams get threatened, and their budding attraction for each other becomes way too complicated.
WHY THIS IS A MUST-READ: This is a retelling of Romeo and Juliet that is done in a completely novel (excuse the pun) and saucy (excuse this one too) way.
The characters are extremely endearing (in my mind I cast Dave Franco as Jack…and that character is an identical twin, so Dave Franco x2. You’re welcome). I was totally shipping them from page two and I guarantee you will too. If you want a book that’s fun, witty, hilarious, and delicious (in all the ways) then Tweet Cute is the one for you.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️—Add this to your must-read list immediately. This is an important and moving book. I highly recommend.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️—This book was entertaining, well-written, and worthwhile. I definitely recommend.
⭐️⭐️⭐️—This book was decent and a good read. I recommend, but do not consider it a must-read.

⭐️—This book fell flat in several ways. I do not recommend.
*—A half star for those that fell in between rating levels.
