“Goodnight Tweetheart” by Teresa Medeiros

I picked this book up because of course it was a reccomendation of the 2peas (I get most of my recommendations from them!)  Here is the description from goodreads:

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 Sabine for the Twitter generation.

It was a quick read and it made me actually laugh out loud at points and cry at others.  It made me get engrossed in the characters of Mark and Abigail.  It was just the kind of book I needed at that time (isn’t it funny how that works out).  My only real complaint is the ending.   I want more.  Maybe there will be a sequel? I truly hope so.
