Hello lovely people!
Ever since I read what Tweet Cute was going to be about, I knew I had to make this book one of my most anticipated releases of January. And I couldn’t be more excited when this was decided to be the book to read in February for the Dragon Book Club.
Anyway, let’s get to the review!
Tweet Cute is about Pepper, who runs the Twitter account of well known Big League’s Burguer. Jack has a hate/love relationship with his work at his family deli, Girl Cheesing, but when Big League Burger steals his grandma’s recipe, Jack and Pepper take their war to Twitter. However, meanwhile their fight on Twitter gets more and more popular, they are unknowingly falling for each other on an anonymous chat app Jack created.
This book is told in Pepper’s and Jack’s POV. They were so fun to read and it was very interesting and cute to get to know them better as the story progressed. They felt so real and even when they are like seventeen or eighteen years old, I could relate to their inner conflicts because I went through it all when I was their age. It felt like going back to high school all over again and I liked it a lot.
Their love story is so cute and I only wish we could have seen more of them as an actual couple because the cuteness! And they are also funny so I might have laughed out loud a couple of times. Another thing I wish I could try, is all of Pepper’s baked goodies! They had weird names, but from the reaction of the people, they seemed to be *chef kiss*, so I’m really intrigued by that and I want to take one bite, at least.
Now, about the characters. I won’t say much because of spoilers, but I loved Pepper and Jack. Specially Jack because he didn’t trust himself that much and I wanted to get in the book and hug him and tell him he was doing pretty good and that everything was going to be fine. And as for Pepper, I liked her a lot too. She doesn’t have her life figured out, but she is trying so hard to find herself and because of that I’m so proud of her. I really see these two as my babies that need to be protected from the bad of the world.
Tweet Cute really lives up to all the hype I’ve seen around the internet and I’m so happy it lived up to my expectations! It’s a truly cute but also very relatable story about high schoolers who are trying to figure out what they want from their future.
I highly recommend this book to anyone, especially if you like reading about food!
Here are some of my favorite quotes:
But sometimes even shouting into a void feels better than just staring into it.
The issue isn’t so much what I want to be, but wether or not I can be it without hurting everyone else in the process.
What’s the point of learning if you’re just doing it to beat someone, you know?
I don’t know how it’s possible to want to get the hell away from someone and actively follow them like they’re a magnet at the same time.
It’s weird, how you have no idea how far you’ve come until suddenly you can’t find the way back.
Until the next post!
Happy reading 💙
