A very surprising read... I was not expecting much as this was a very small novel and about something that I really haven't delved into for any great length of time - Twitter.
Having read books using social mediums (e-mail) in the past, I knew that it was something that interested me but seeing conversations take place in 140 characters of less really did make for a quick read. The dialouge flowed and it never felt like I was missing out on any of the necessary details of either of the main characters lives.
Abby and Mark have an instant connection and while it feels a bit 'too good to be true', it is endearing. I was concerned for Abby that she would end up falling in love with some random 'internet creeper', but was happy when it turned out she didn't. Mark is just the man she was hoping. Dreams really do come true... who knew?
Overall, in what should have been a predictable book, there were enough twists and turns that it became a page-flipper. A great read and you don't even have to be a Twitter fanatic!!
Abigail, a best selling author whose writers block since her father's untimely passing has kept her frozen, both in her writing and even in her apartment, reluctantly goes on Twitter at the direction of her agent. Fumbling around the new medium, she finds herself in a conversation with a stranger, a man. And when they start conversing regularly she finds herself looking forward to their conversations and eventual `dates' and finds herself drawn to a man in the most unlikely of places for her.
Teresa Medieros was brilliant at adapting this story into tweets. There weren't many short forms, or confusing conversations. It all flowed easily and effortlessly. I have to sometimes fumble around to get my tweets within the character limit and marveled at times with her ability to convey her point in such few words. Because I'm well versed in the way of twitter for the most part, I could understand and relate to much of what was happening, but I'm unsure if someone who wasn't could, even with the explanations provided. I think they would though, but overall the story isn't as much in the details of twitter, but what is spoken through the medium.
In the end I smiled away with this warm and lighthearted read. Anyone looking for a light, cute and smile filled read with a technological spin on romance will appreciate this one.
I enjoyed this so much that I bought a copy as a Christmas gift for a friend.

Abby hasn't been able to move on from chapter five of her novel after experiencing smashing success with her debut novel. The pressure is getting to her, and as part of her daily ritual of avoiding her writing, she joins Twitter. The first person to tweet at her is Mark, and Mark is far more interesting--and inspiring--than anything else Abby has had contact with recently.
Mark and Abby start a funny flirtation, going on "dates" via Twitter and chatting late into the night with direct messages. But Mark has a secret he's keeping from Abby, and Abby has some of her own demons to contend with. Will they overcome their obstacles to finally meet?
You'll have to read to find out, but this novel is certainly not a chore. If you're looking for a quick, funny, upbeat, tender story of two people learning to live and love again, this is your novel.
Will they ever get a chance to meet in real life?
"Goodnight Tweetheart" was a fascinating and emotional book. It made me smile and then cry (more often than I usually like while reading).
The first part of the book is full of witty remarks and all in all very entertaining. I had to laugh a lot and enjoyed getting to know Abby and Mark. I loved the pop culture references and the way Abby and Mark greeted and said good bye to each other in their tweets.
The use of twitter and tweets worked perfectly for me and Teresa Medeiros' way to write them was wonderful. I often struggle with the 140 characters you have in twitter and wish that I could be so eloquent, witty and precise like Abby & Mark when tweeting. I don't think that you have to use twitter to understand what's going on or to enjoy the book. However it's a plus if you know a bit about tweeting. Large parts of the book are tweets however there are also text passages and these are used to show what happens in Abby's life.
In the middle of the story the atmosphere suddenly changes. Mark confesses something that alters everything. I assumed that something about Mark's story wasn't true but never would have guessed what exactly. I actually understood his reason to lie and in the end it helped Abby to start anew and enjoy life again. Abby's way to deal with Mark's lies felt right to me and I liked that in the end she went after what she wanted.
I don't want to reveal too much about the story but some parts are so sad however there's always hope. The book has an open end and you can be sure that my imagination started to write a wonderful Happy Ever After for Mark and Abby right after I read the last sentence.
Love the cover because it's pretty and fits perfectly to the story.
"Goodnight Tweetheart" is a book I loved reading although it made me cry. But it also made me smile a lot and I was always excited to read the next sentence and to learn more about Mark and Abby.
I was fascinated by the light-hearted first part of the story and also by the serious second part. In my imagination Mark and Abby will get a beautiful Happy Ever After because they deserve it.
the reason im giving it 4 starts its because i would of wished a longer story. specially the ending. Medeiros was thoroughly descriptive, yet the real action felt short. thats where i had the problem with the book. other than that, its one hell of a book!!
The witty, little bon mots are what I live for in a book like this. Abby and Mark come across as real people even though you only get a bit about Mark from his writing and Abby's theories about him. Of course, the book is a condensed version of a normal romance, but the emotion, word play and appeal are all there.
Of course, there is a bit of a twist at the end, which was nicely done and kept the story from becoming entirely predictable and too sweet.
