Welcome to the present time retelling of “You’ve got mail!”

-There is no competition between local book shop and Barnes and Noble store, we had a local deli famous with its signature cheese sandwich versus burger joint that stole deli’s special cheese sandwich recipe and declares the secret recipe belonged to them!

Y'all this book was SO GOOD I CAN'T EVEN HANDLE IT. If you enjoy lighthearted, witty YA contemporary, you absolutely NEED to add this to your 2020 TBRs. This book was just so fun and current and sassy while also being just the right amount of serious and I am just so enamored with it. I hesitate to compare it to anything else because it is so very much it's own thing, but I will say that this was like a mix of Jenn Bennett and Emma Mills with extra large dash of humor thrown into the mix and I J ...more

in all fairness, this is super cute. i understand a story focusing on a twitter feud is going to be full of memes and references and relevant internet things, so i cant be too mad about it. if anything, the only thing that really annoyed me was the fact that pepper a

Tweet Cute sent me into cuteness overload!!! My heart literally figuratively just exploded.

When fast-food behemoth, Big League Burger, announces a new line of grilled cheese sandwiches, no one is more surprised than twins, Jack and Ethan Campbell.

Their surprise comes not from excitement for grilled cheesiness, but from the fact that one of the specialty sandwiches announced has the exact same ingredients, and name, as a grill cheese they know very well.

It was created by their Grandmother and ha

Stolen family recipes and Twitter wars that go viral. Two teens, Pepper and Jack, are stuck in the middle of a family business feud.

Each are relied upon to run Big League Burger, a successful food chain, and Girl Cheesing, a small family-run deli, Twitter accounts. It just so happens that they both go to the same school.

It was exactly as cute as I thought it was going to be. YA romcoms are my new weakness.

I am 99% sure that this book, in some way, came out of my brain.

Think about it. It contains:
- much discussion of grilled cheese
- characters who in some way do social media as their job
- the most insane desserts you’ve ever heard of
- a New York setting
- a cheesy (get it?) romance

The last two things are not related to my life in any way shape or form, but they are things I enjoy reading about.

And while there was a lot to like about this book (I want to eat everything inside it, for one thing), th

Quite frankly, this might possibly be the most disgustingly cutest book I have ever read.

When characters are sprouting about feeling fuckin' sunshine and sea and whatnot inside their chest, I now know what they mean BECAUSE THIS BOOK DID THAT TO ME!

"Let the games begin."

Was this seriously a debut novel? Tweet Cute by Emma Lord is one of the best YA contemporary/rom-com's I've read in so long. It was adorable, endearing, and made me laugh out loud more than once. I loved the modern day, high school spin of the 'You've Got Mail' type of story line, and it was so much fun to read!

Jack and Pepper go to the same prep school in NYC. Pepper is the overachieving student who is captain of the swim team and is constantly

Tweet Cute is officially my first five star read of the year! I devoured this adorably food centric rom-com about Pepper and Jack, who each run the social media accounts for their family restaurants and get into an anonymous Twitter war while simultaneously falling for each other in real life. Pepper's constant baking creations had my mouth watering and I found myself wishing that Jack's deli were a real life village staple that I could frequent. The writing style really worked for me- it's mode ...more

Is it weird if I say that its title is “Tweet Cute” but I HATE THIS TWEET THING THE MOST IN THE BOOK?

Not because it’s bad but I feel so annoyed / irritated with this tweet thing throughout the book. In the first 40%, whatever Jack and Pepper are trying to play against each other on Twitter is totally CHILDISH. I wouldn’t say like this if they tweet against each other by using personal account but they don’t. They use their restaurant official

This was such a fun sweet lighthearted romcom! Emma Lord has written a delightful debut that put a big smile on my face. Twitter wars, secret apps, teenage angst, swim team, water polo, grilled cheese, secret recipes, macaroons, expectations, friendship, romance, family, sibling rivalry, cheeseburgers.

This was in fact, cute. This is a YA contemporary about these two teens Pepper and Jack who both have family businesses and they both run the twitter accounts for their family business. Pepper's family business steals a recipe from Jack's family business and we get this classic modern day Romeo & Juliet type of forbidden angsty romance that involves a lot of twitter fights and a playful hate to love vibe. It actually was really cute, I listened to the audiobook which was great by the way, the na ...more

This book is for you if… are looking for a relatable teenage love story that involves tons of baking-inspirations and cute fights with a slight Gossip Girl filter with all the over the top intrigues and drama.

Happy publication day to this concoction of teenage angst and romance.

I always think there’s a fine line in cutesy love stories of the comedic variety. It’s quite a difficult balance to get to grips with having a very staged and perfect enemies to lovers type romance featuring a story that hits all the expected rom com cues without descending into over the top melodrama.

Tweet Cute sadly for me went too far. It’s such a shame. It started out so well... but gradually it just got less and less believable and the twitter war turned into a vendetta that just generally

Teen Twitter Wars?! Just call this a Smart, Sarcastic, Lighthearted Rom-Com.

Duking it out on Twitter for the sake of their families’ businesses has become quite the past-time for Pepper and her classmate, Jack. Of course, neither knows that the other is responsible for the sarcastic, snarky memes and tweets.

When Jack sees Big League Burgers’ post on Twitter announcing “Grandma’s Special” Grilled Cheese, Jack’s eye’s pop. His family deli, “Girl Cheesing” has sold “Grandma’s Special” since its in

Okay, this book was SO CUTE. This is exactly the kind of YA contemporary I eat up and adore. Pepper and Jack are classmates and realize that they are the ones in a twitter war between their parents' companies. I really loved Jack and Pepper's banter and their slow relationship. They both had crushes on each other but didn't know how to really act around each other and it was so adorable.

We also had another layer in here where Pepper and Jack are talking to each other anonymously on an app. I th

Oh my. This one was really cute!

I'll admit, I don't typically read contemporary - especially contemporary YA books. The only exception I make is for tropes I like, and this one fit the bill. I mean, cmon. Who doesn't love a You-Got-Mail comp for secret identity? (Also, why aren't there more books like this?!)

Anyway, Tweet Cute follows Pepper and Jack (hah, yeah, PepperJack) as they get caught up in their family business's tweet war. Pepper has a knack for feisty tweets, so when a mom and pop ca

This was one of those adorable, cute books that worked for a whole lot of reasons.

1. the writing was really great especially since it’s a debut novel
2. the story was original from beginning to end
3. both main characters were genuine, likable and cute

I was surprised by how non-predictable the story was. And I loved how mature both characters were, and how well they handled the turns and twists that were thrown at them. I was surprised by how layered the plot was, and that it even covered

Could this book be any more adorable?

She's also in charge of social media for her family's fast-food chain, Big League Burger. The company has come a long way since her parents opened the first store in Nashville; now her mother is the ruthless CEO looking to expand, leaving Pepper and the rest of her famil

So, before actually starting this book, I had a feeling this would be cute (and honestly that's as high as my hopes were because I've been burned before!) but by 49% I knew I would love this. And I did. Side note, I know 49% doesn't sound impressive considering it's halfway through the book and most people can see the writing on the wall by that point, but this felt.. long. Not in a bad way, but this is a substantial romance read, so. I don't know, I don’t know why I'm defending this point, rega ...more
