Sometimes you just need a good chick lit. It lost a star due to a few easily fixed editorial errors, and too much repetitive dialogue/scenarios at the end, but overall I enjoyed it.

I first need to thank the publishers at Harper Collins UK and HarperImpulse, and the author, for allowing me early access to this book via Netgalley, in exchange for a full review.

Cassidy Shea is a former TV news person. She starts working on a presidential campaign, full of super hot guys. She's trying to find "Mr. Right". There's sort of a mystery in the book, but she's not all that concerned. Her personality Twitter Girl is a snarky commentator in the lead-up to the campaign, mos

Nic Tatano has quickly become one of my must-read authors, ever since I read his debut novel Wing Girl last year. This has quickly been followed by Boss Girl, It Girl, The Adventures of Jillian Spectre and now Twitter Girl, proving he is a very prolific author - something I can admire; it's quite exciting to know an author you love will have multiple releases per year, and just goes to show that it can be done! You can write and publish more than one book a year and it's awesome more authors are ...more

Twitter Girl is a must read, if you love witty dialogue. Add to this, media industry insight, delivered by vivid, easily visualised characters and you have an enjoyable read. Like 'Wing Girl', the first book by Nic Tatano, this sweet, romantic comedy is full of snarky lines from independent, career minded women, who speak their mind, before they consider the consequences.

The idea of Twitter Girl really appealed to me and it was as funny as I had expected it to be. Cassidy, known as @TwitterGirl to over a million of her Twitter followers, has been fired from her job for a controversial tweet taken too far. Not down and out for long, she is soon hired to help Will Becker in his presidential campaign by doing what she’s best at – creating a bit of a Twitter storm. I loved the concept of this book involving

I went into this book completely blind. I’ve never read anything by the author, I had never heard of the book, and the cover led me to believe that I would really like the book…or really hate it. I took a chance (YOLO, amiright?), requested the ebook on NetGalley, and finished the book in a few days. It was surprisingly readable, once I got past the weirdness of reading the male author write from the point of view of a redheaded sassy 6-foot

When I read the description of this book, I was so excited. A sassy, kick-ass redhead combined with Twitter, a romantic interest and some politics, I was sure that I would love this book. However, I read around 25% of the book before I had to stop (I wanted to give up reading well before then but thought 25% was a fair chance to change my opinion.)
I disliked this book for a couple of reasons - firstly, within the first chapter of the book, the main character Cassidy had given her lif

You may have recently read my review for It Girl, by Nic Tatano, which was the first I’d read by him and I absolutely loved it; so Twitter Girl had some pretty big shoes to fill!

Luckily, this new, snarky redhead stepped into them with ease.

When Cassidy Shea is fired by the news network that she works for her work life is sent into a spin. Sure, she wrote a slightly inappropriate Tweet but was it really worth firing her for. Where are her rights? Her freedom of speech?

Fortunately Cassidy’s luck is about to change. She is hired as a political commentator for Will Becker’s campaign. Hailed to be the next president, Becker employs Cassidy aka Twitter Girl to take down the competition with a snarky Tweet or two.

I am puzzled as to how I haven't got round to reading any of Nic Tatano's other books, despite having bought them and having them waiting on my kindle.

As a journalist, I am pretty wary of reading books that feature journalists as characters because they are usually misrepresented, with authors constraining those characters to most people's stereotypes of journalists. Thankfully, that isn't the case here. The "Twitter Girl" is Cassidy, a TV reporter who is fired for snarking in public that a tornado improved a certain state's landscape. She's hired because of her following on social media to work for a politician, and while I mistakenly assumed ...more

Cassidy is known as @twitter girl. She is a reporter who tweets her followers with acerbic comments.

It all backfires on her after one tweet gets her fired and she also loses her boyfriend.

She catches the eye of Will Becker, a presidential candidate. They start a relationship which catches the nation's attention. Where will all this end?

An entertaining book.

Many thanks to the publisher and Net Gallery for a copy of this book.

I really enjoyed this story and love the author’s ability to weave a story so entertaining, featuring characters so vivid and real, that the reader feels a connection to them on a personal level. When the story begins, Cassidy Shea has hit rock bottom in her career and her love life. As @TwitterGirl, she has amassed a following of more than a million people, but when one snarky tweet lands her in hot water, she finds herself without a job and a boyfriend.

Twitter Girl by Nic Tatano

My initial thoughts on ‘Twitter Girl’ centred around previous books I had read in a diary or email format such as Bridget Jones Diary, and similar. Here was one I hadn’t come across – a book based around Twitter. Could a story be written around a medium using just 140 characters per post? Personally, I have never really ‘got’ Twitter, so I was intrigued.
Further initial thoughts were based on assumptions regarding the front cover illustration and yes, even the author’s n

Cassidy Shea, widely known as @TwitterGirl, has unfortunately lost her job due to poor words placement. In the face of losing her job and the whole world hating on her, to further put a slap to her face, her boyfriend also took a hike.

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.

Twitter Girl by Nic Tatano is the first book I've read by the author and was a really surprised gem in my opinion. Being someone who has been on Twitter over 4 years I guess I've seen my share of tweeters, especially those in the PR industry and the whole concept of Twitter Girl really had me intrigued.

From the cover I was expecting a lighthearted, easy read but that was deceiving as it is so much more than that. Also, I am not usually a fan of male writers of women’s fiction, but Nic Tatano is the exception as he manages to write a believable and relatable female character, which makes you instantly forget the gender of the author. Cassidy’s insightful and witty tweets summed up the current events happening around her perfectly; Rather than relying heavily on too much Twitter speak, they ...more

Ahh, I loved this book! So refreshing for a chick lit! As much as I enjoy chick lit books, sometimes the stereotypical lead female gets a bit repetitive, the sweetheart, good girl type can become boring. So say hello to Cassidy Shea, or TwitterGirl, a sarcastic, narky hot head who holds nothing back! I loved Cassidy from the start, even though she had managed to get herself sacked from her job for a tweet that wasn't her best move. But that tweet led her to a bigger and better job, and

When I was finished reading, I'm not sure how I felt. I shut my kindle off, set it away, and found I was sort of let down. I loved the start of the book. Cassidy was the fiery heroine of my dreams, really, and I thought the premise of making snarky political comments during a presidential campaign was super interesting.

Her romance with Becker was obvious: even if he wasn't super focused on her at the beginning, I knew the romance would happen. I figured they'd be discovered by the press. I'm ha

This book was awful. There was mistakes in the plot where the author hadnt done her research, this was to do with Kate Middleton and who she married. I would of thought that if she was putting this into the book, she would of at least researched it properly and got it right!

The main focus of this book was about ppl being in love but not realising it. This book was meant to be about politics and Beckers secret if I'm not mistaken. This book covered that

Twitter Girl is a romantic comedy, with a dash of politics on the side. I found my emotions easily changing along with Cassidy's as the story progressed and plot twists were thrown into the mix.

While the actual age of Cassidy and her friend Ripley is 35, their personalities feel much more like high school. They tend to lack the maturity of someone that age, bu

So, if Mrs. Bennet was a live and well and writing romcoms in present times this is the sort of book she would write because: “It is a truth universally acknowledge that a single man who is running to be president is definitely in look for a wife… and every woman that comes in his path is Cassidy’s competition.” In the mind of the main character in a very unprofessional manner all she can think of is become the future first lady and the secretary, her best friend and the random woman who nods at ...more

The inevitable has happened. When you hate the main character so much, what can you do other than DNF the book?

Cassidy Shea is famous on Twitter because of her "sarcastic tweets". But sometimes people just don't have a sense of humour and one of her little Twitter jokes was to much to handle. She gets fired and while at first I though "Gee, that's so unfair," Cassidy showed me what kind of a person she is and I switched to "The bitch deserved it."
