Received Book from publisher for review.
Abigail Donovan has a lot of stuff she should be doing. Namely writing her next novel. A bestselling author who is still recovering from a near Pulitzer Prize win and the heady success that follows Oprah’s stamp of approval, she is stuck at Chapter Five and losing confidence daily. But when her publicist signs her up for a Twitter account, she’s intrigued. What’s all the fuss?
Taken under the wing of one of her Twitter followers, “MarkBaynard"—a quick witted, quick-typing professor on sabbatical—Abby finds it easy to put words out into the world 140 characters at a time. And once she gets a handle on tweets, retweets, direct messages, hashtags, and trends, she starts to feel unblocked in writing and in life. After all, why should she be spending hours in her apartment staring at her TweetDeck and fretting about her stalled career when Mark is out there traveling the world and living?
Or is he?(synopsis taken from Amazon.com)
Those that know me know how addicted to Twitter I am, so it was only natural that I wanted to read Goodnight Tweetheart. Most of the book focuses on Twitter conversations between the main characters and I for one know how easy and fun it is to get lost in the world of Twitter.
Abby is an author that is new to the world of Twitter and on her first day of tweeting receives a tweet from Mark Baynard. Mark and Abby fall into easy conversation with each other and Mark teaches her the what and what not's of Twitter. She learns about the awesomeness of Tweetdeck and what should happen if she should put the name Britney Spears into a tweet. Eventually we get to learn more about each of the characters through their Twitter conversations. I loved their conversations and found myself laughing out loud while reading them. Mark and Abby have a great sense of humor and before I knew it I was flying through the book.
A great point is raised in this book that I find myself thinking about all the time. How much do you really know about a person that you converse with online? So much can be hidden while online and the readers realize this when a major truth is revealed in the book. Mark and Abby's relationship changes because of this and I could not put the book down at this point.
I enjoyed Goodnight Tweetheart so much and was completely surprised in the way that it touched me. I found this review hard to write without giving away the major parts of the book. I feel that the reader should experience this book on their own and trust me it is so worth it. I'm so happy to have read this book and hope you will get the opportunity to as well.
