BLOG TOUR & REVIEW | Tweet Cute by Emma Lord

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog! I'm Genni, and I'm thrilled to participate in the Tweet Cute book tour! As I mentioned in an earlier post, Tweet Cute was one of my favorite reads of last year, and I hope all of you YA, romance, or contemporary readers will pick it up!

Before I begin my review, here is a great excerpt of the book, where Pepper and Jack - two teens running their families restaurant's twitter account - agree to continue their twitter war, no holds barred. This scene is essentially "game on," and a lot of fun (and cuteness) ensue!

Title: Tweet Cute
Author: Emma Lord (Follow her on Twitter and Insta!)
Series? Nope!
Pages: 368
Publication Date: January 21, 2020
Publisher: Wednesday Books
Source: I read an ARC of Tweet Cute through Netgalley! My thoughts and opinions are my own. :)
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.

Best 2019 Releases I've Read This Year! | 2019 Yearly Rewind

This list would have had a lot of overlap with my best fiction, non-fiction, and romance books I've read this year, so I've excluded those that I've already mentioned on the blog! So here are some that I haven't given the due diligence to, but I still think you should check out!

Meet Cute by Helena Hunting

Meet Cute is such a darling romance novel. I read this all the way back in May 2019, and I would still recommend it to this day. If you like contemporary romance that adds fandom culture with familial issues that ends on such a satisfying note. This was my first Helena Hunting novel, but it won't be my last. 

Love from A to Z by S.K. Ali 

Love from A to Z is such a wonderful, soulful book. Though a YA novel, it's perfect for anyone who wants to read a book that wonderfully balances complex issues (Islamophobia, sexism, chronic illness, grief) and a heartwarming love story. S.K. Ali is such a talented writer, and she left me wiping away tears plenty of times.

Best Non-Fiction I've Read Last Year | 2019 Yearly Rewind

Hi everyone and welcome to my blog! I'm Genni, and today I'll be sharing with you the best non-fiction books I've read this year. as someone who predominately reads fiction year-round, I tried to expand my bounds and delve into non-fiction. I didn't read much, but definitely found some stars.

Here are my favorite non-fiction books I read this year! Keep in mind that these are not 2019 releases, but rather books I read in 2019.

Sorry I'm Late, I Didn't Want to Come by Jessica Pan
I listened to this book on audio, and I had such a great time. It was the perfect audiobook to listen to as I did chores around my apartment - engaging, yet not so complicated that I had to give my whole entire focus to it. Pan's memoir, where she attempts to become more extroverted, was both comical and clever.

Best Fiction I've Read This Year! | 2019 Yearly Rewind

Hey everyone and welcome back to my blog! I'm Genni, and instead of doing a mega-post of all my favorite books I read this year, I wanted to splice it up into four different categories. You'll see the best fiction, best non-fiction, best 2019 releases, and best romance books I've read this year, and there won't be any overlap/repeats!

Without further ado, here are my favorite fiction reads of this year, in no particular order! Keep in mind, not all of these are 2019 releases, but rather the books I read in 2019.


Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abbi Waxman

If you want a book that is just full of energy and an all-around good time, then look no further than The Bookish Life of Nina Hill! Nina Hill just realized that she has a slew of family members when her biological father, who she has never known, passes away and leaves her as a beneficiary in his will. Cue a burgeoning romance, and you've got a lovely book!

Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid

Such a Fun Age is my favorite book of the year! I sincerely can't recommend it enough, but if you need more incentive, you can read my review that was featured on the January 2020 Indie Next List.
