Review: Twitter Girl – Nic Tatano

TwitterGirl Twitter Girl – Nic Tatano
Publisher: Harper Impulse
Release date: 18th September 2014
Genre: Rom Com

Meet America’s Tweet-Heart.

She’s network reporter Cassidy Shea, better known as @TwitterGirl, with more than a million followers thanks to her sarcastic tweets. One hundred forty characters that can take anyone down a notch.

But while brevity may be the soul of wit, it can also get you fired.

When a controversial tweet goes viral the snarky redhead finds herself locked out of the career she loves… and watches her boyfriend take a hike.

Alas, no industry values sarcasm more than politics, and Cassidy becomes a marketable commodity for Presidential candidate Will Becker, a squeaky-clean, stone cold lock to be the next occupant of the White House. This candidate is unlike any other; he’s the country’s most eligible bachelor. He’s also looking for a running mate, and we’re not talking about a Vice President.

Twitter Girl has caught his eye.

Cassidy finds herself swept up in a whirlwind romance that turns her into the next Jackie Kennedy and becomes the favorite to be the next First Lady. The country can’t get enough of America’s First Couple… will Cassidy and Will Becker bring back Camelot?

But an anonymous tip triggers her journalistic curiosity. Is Will Becker all that he seems? The search for the answer teaches Cassidy the meaning of love.

My Thoughts

I actually quite liked this book. It had a lot of humour in it, I giggled a lot!

The relationship between T.G and her brother Sam is really sweet and cute. When you read it you wouldn’t know that he’s actually her younger brother or that he’s in a wheelchair. A prober sibling relationship shaped by the loss of their parents on quite a young age.
I enjoyed the social media side of it, disliked instantly her ex (who wouldn’t!! Unsupportive..!) and I had just like Sam doubts at her relationships.

When she starts, after losing her job because she was too sarcastic on twitter, she manages to accept a job for a President candidate who turns out squeeky clean. She receives some messages to make her curious to delve into his past. I didnt’ really liked the Senator. It was just something that made it off… The mystery could have been solved sooner and even though I had no idea who the mystery sender was, I did had an inkling in what the secret was.
The author did a very good job in keeping you on the fence of liking or disliking the Senator. That was very well done. I didn’t liked him, I really really wanted to – but all this time I was hoping she would dump his ass as Cassidy is way to smart and way to independent to be with him.

Her best friend Ripley and her new found friend Tyler are amazing! I absolutely loved the scenes where all 4 of them got together; Cassidy, Tyler, Sam and Ripley. I loved the sweetness of Tyler from the moment we meet him in the book.

I also like that this book isn’t just set from the start on one particular person/couple and not an instant hubba bubba we get together right now and do naughty stuff together. However, the reason why I just liked it and not loved it was the last 10% of the book. It was repeated and not original, I felt it was rushed and squeezed together to keep it in so little pages as this book is.
