Tweet Cute by Emma Lord @stmartinspress #bookreview

Happy almost weekend!

This book comes out next Tuesday and it is SO ADORABLE! A fun book that will make you smile!🍔

My Thoughts

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. Pepper is a straight A high school student, captain of the swim team with her eye on the future. She also finds herself managing her parents restaurant chain’s social media accounts. Jack is a good guy techie who seems to always find himself in his twin brother’s shadow. He also is burdened with the responsibility of taking over the family diner one day. When Pepper’s family’s restaurant chain appears to have stolen the secret grilled cheese recipe of Jack’s family diner a Twitter war ensues. The teens attend the same school and have recently started a friendship, neither of them knowing of the others involvement on Twitter. Additionally they have also established a deeper connection on an app that Jack created for the high school where everyone’s identity is anonymous. So what happens when you find out the person that you’re falling for is also the person that you hate?

Loved the story! Both Pepper and Jack were such great characters. There was also a little more depth to this story than some other romcoms. The story really touched on family responsibilities and expectations. There was also lots of yummy food! I found myself craving grilled cheese and macaroons. Two Great kids in an awkward uncomfortable situation with a couple extra fun twists along the way. Fun, fun, fun, absolutely recommend when you are in the mood for a heart warming story! With a side of fries.

About the Book

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.

The Hollows by Jess Montgomery @tlcbooktours @minotaurbooks #bookreview

Happy Thursday all!

Delighted to share this compelling story with you today! This was a book that I definitely liked more than I was anticipating, and isn’t that always the best?🗝

My Thoughts

The perfect blend of history and Mystery this is the second book in Jess Montgomery’s Kinship series based on The real first female sheriff of Ohio. While I thought this worked just fine as a standalone, I also would have liked a little more of the characters backstory that I am sure is given in the first book. 1926 Ohio Lily is called to the scene of an elderly woman having dropped onto the train tracks from above and then been hit by the oncoming train. No identification, no shoes, no idea if she jumped, fell, or was pushed. And who is this mysterious person all in white the break man swears he saw? A compelling Mystery with threads of history woven in. The story was not only told from Lily’s perspective but also that of Marvena and Hildy. Three strong, sassy, self-assured women trying to find their way in a man’s world. Lily was constantly having to prove herself and that she did indeed deserve to be sheriff. This book was well researched and touched on a lot of historical events such as the underground railroad and the WKKK something I had no previous knowledge of. An absorbing Mystery, captivating characters, enthralling history. This book checked all the boxes, and I am eager to see what is next in store for Lily.

About the Book

Jess Montgomery showcases her skills as a storyteller in The Hollows: a powerful, big-hearted and exquisitely written follow-up to her highly acclaimed debut The Widows.

Ohio, 1926: For many years, the railroad track in Moonvale Tunnel has been used as a shortcut through the Appalachian hills. When an elderly woman is killed walking along the tracks, the brakeman tells tales of seeing a ghostly female figure dressed all in white.

Newly elected Sheriff Lily Ross is called on to the case to dispel the myths. With the help of her friends Marvena Whitcomb and Hildy Cooper, Lily follows the woman’s trail to The Hollows–a notorious asylum–and they begin to expose dark secrets long-hidden by time and the mountains.
