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.

This was my second time reading this book. I remembered reading it the first time round about 4 years ago and thinking that it was utterly sweet and lovely. For some reason I had never gotten round to reading it for the second time till now ... and guess what? It's still as sweet and lovely and heart-warming as I remembered it being the first time round. Maybe even slightly more.
This book ... gah! It's simply everything good about romance. And then some as it makes me have all these feelings that I look for when I'm reading romance novels.
If you don't get this gooey good feeling inside your belly when reading this novel, I don't know what to do about your feelings as Abby and Mark are simply adorable together and I love, love, love how they grow to care for one another. It doesn't matter that it's not like the slow-burn romance novels I usually prefer because it has its own charm to it that makes me swoon and think about flowers and butterflies.
I love how this book has nothing to do with a hot guy and a really pretty girl meeting and falling head over heels in lust with each other as Mark and Abby don't meet till about 90% into the story. I love how they interact with each other and I love how witty they are with each other. I guess you could say that I just love Mark and Abby.
Give it a try if you haven't read this lovely story just yet. :)
This was the first contemporary story I've read from her.
The banter between Mark and Abby is amazing funny.
I'm such a sucker for banter.
I found myself rushing through reading Abby's day to day, I was so anxious to get back to the Mark & Abby Show.
It was sweet.
It was thoughtful.
And it warmed my heart considerably.
The story was short, but it didn't feel rushed.
I love feeling that sense of contentment from reading a simple "The End'.
It doesn't happen often, but when it does... You know you've struck gold.
Love this story.
Abby Donovan is a first time author who's book went to the top of the NYT Best Sellers list, was a Oprah Book Club pick and almost won the Pulitzar. She has been working on her second book for so long that her publisher drops her. Stuck on Chapter 5, she fears that she was a one hit wonder. That is when her agent sets her up with a Twitter account so that she can converse with her readers, get her name out there, and possibly get new followers/stalkers/predators.
Mark Baynard is a English Professor at Ol' Miss on sabatical to see the world and write the next American Novel. By chance he meets Abby on Twitter and the two of them strike up funny, whitty, ROLFLMBO banter that keeps the reader hooked. From Mark teaching Abby "Twitter 101", to "Twitter Dates", to "Views from his iPhone and her Laptop", this story made me roll for the first 12 chapters. But Mark is hiding a HUGE secret that broke my heart, his heart and Abby's as well. I don't want to give it away, so there will be no spoilers, but I can promise you that if you hang on till the end, these "Tweetheart" will find a HEA.
I am so greatful that I picked up a copy of "Goodnight Tweetheart". I would recommend this book to all my friends, my family and anyone that just wants to curl up with a really really really GREAT book. I will be looking for more from this author.
The tweets were cute, clever, romantic, and helped build a strong tie between two lonely people. There's a twist or two in the tale and you might want to keep a Kleenex handy but I enjoyed this book told in Tweet messages. And I loved all the movie and television references.
