About the Book:
New York Times bestselling author Teresa Medeiros absolutely dazzles in this quick-witted, laugh-out-loud funny, and highly moving love story that will set readers’ hearts atwitter. 

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?

Told almost entirely in tweets and DMs, Goodnight Tweetheart is a truly modern take on a classic tale of love and loss—a Griffin and Sabinefor the Twitter generation.

My Review:
I LOVED this book! In fact, out of all the books I’ve read in 2010, this was by far my FAVORITE. No, it’s not Christian….it does have use of the minor curse words, (nothing overtly terrible though), and it has no sex scenes….well, unless you count the laugh out loud Tweets going on between Abby and Mark that might HINT at some naughtier things. But, that in no way makes this book unreadable. In fact, the laugh out loud humor this book throws at you, is PHENOMENAL! 

This novel was told in 90% Tweets. I mean, it’s the PERFECT book for book reviewers in the year 2010. We all have a TweetDeck account, or Twitter account ,and Facebook, I’m sure….at least most of us do, I think. So, what better way to throw a love story in with a twist? Written in a way that us book reviewers are used to! In the world of #hashtags and 140 characters or less, this book is a classic love story. It reminds me of Debbie Macomber meeting Nicholas Sparks. PERFECT! I find it fun to have a Twitter account and to use all the fun loving #hashtags(though I would never imagine finding love through Twitter!), so I was super excited to hear about this book. 

In Goodnight Tweetheart, Abby,an author who thinks she has a failing career, “meets” Mark, a fellow Tweeter whom quickly befriends her. But, is it cool to fall in love with someone you’ve never met, to have virtual dates and read the words each night of ‘Goodnight, Tweetheart’? She’s nervous, sure, but as she gets to know Mark, can he break down the walls of her heart in 140 characters or less? And, why won’t Mark tell her where he is??? 

This is a love story you WON’T want to miss, as you find out the answers to the questions above. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry and you’ll cheer these two love birds (fitting for Tweeters, don’t you think?) on in their wonderful Social Media world. This is most definitely 5 star (and then some!) worthy and must have high praises sung! In 140 characters or  less: THIS IS A MUST READ FOR EVERY BOOK LOVER!  Well done, Teresa! When’s the next book like it?
