When I saw this book, I thought the Tweet and email set up was a fun idea. I was interested in seeing how the conversations via Twitter would work, as I myself have not been a Tweeter. I had also read other books like it. I was sadly very disappointed in this book.

All the characters are absolutely terrible, more than the typical, "I'm in high school so I"m awful," sort of way. I didn't find myself rooting for them, or hoping things would work everything out in the end. I just sat there wondering...more

I loved the set-up this novel... being a Twitter addict myself, I found that aspect to be very unique. However that did lead to the novel being read very quickly, but I don't necessarily consider that a bad thing.

The plot was engaging enough, if not a little bit predictable, I think any reader would be able to see the outcome of this story before it happens, but it's still fun to read! With the novel being in tweet format it was hard to really 'know' the characters. The characters did represent...more

Original post here:

I didn't get into Twitter until last year, but I've had my account for a while now. At work, I think my friends and I converse more in Twitter, and it's kind of fun to watch and read other people's updates. Not to mention following authors and celebrities. Sometimes the best gossip can be found in Twitter, don't you think?

So I was really excited when I saw and read what Tweet Heart was about from Amazon. At first I was frustrated when I saw that there wasn't any Kindle version...more

That one star was for the author being smart enough to fit a load of garbage into one book.

Cute, uniquely presented, and lighthearted, Tweet Heart is a great romantic read. Focusing on four characters, the story is easy to follow and entertaining. Each character gets a decent amount of time and the reader can form a connection with them all.

If there had to be one character for the central focus, it would be Claire. She is the one who ties the set together. Her best friend is Lottie but she is also good friends with Will and Bennett. Though Lottie and Bennett argue and bicker, they hav...more

Tweetheart is a book written completely in tweets, blog posts and emails between four high school friends. Clair is the quiet writer that has a huge crush on the star lacrosse player, Lottie is the BFF that likes to run through guys like toilet paper, Bennette is the nerdy side kick who writes the blog, and Will is the boy that has a huge crush on Clair and thinks that by pretending to be the lacrosse guy on twitter he might be able to make Clair happy.

This was a very quick read, which I was exp...more

Let me just gush about the pages for a minute. Each one is designed to a perfection. Each page has a cute background, not unlike Twitter. The blog entries are headed by spiffy blog headers. And before each tweet is a small little picture of the…er, tweeter? Tweet Heart was such a visually appealing book!

The characterization was pretty good, especially considering Rudnick had to do it in 140 characters or less. Although, readers get to learn more about Claire and Bennett through their blogs and W...more

What do some people do on a daily basis? We tweet our life stories. Every moment of boredom we find ourselves sharing our inner thoughts and socializing with others. Social networks surround our lives so much that we finally have a YA book to share our love for it together. Elizabeth's innovative approach to writing a romantic comedy in the form of twitter was pure genius. The fast-paced plot and entertaining characters were elements for success. Claire and Lottie were the perfect best friend co...more

Elizabeth Rudnick pracuje v Disney Press v New Yorku jako editorka knih vzniklých na základě oblíbených Disneyho filmů či seriálů jako jsou například Piráti z Karibiku, či Princ z Persie. Když zrovna nepracuje, sedává velice ráda u televize a společnost jí dělává její pes jménem Jack Dyson. Nápad na knihu dostala díky randění a jedné věci, kterou o ní její přítel prohlásil. Pak myšlenka potkala myšlenku a pomaličku se začínal vynořovat celý koncept knihy.

Claire je klasická nesmělá holka, která j...more

I can not say enough good things about this book. I absolutely loved it! Elizabeth did an awesome job for her debut novel. I love reading books in diary form, or in this case, e-mails, blogs and tweets! I finished this book in 4 hours. Would have been sooner but I have kids so I couldn't sit right down and read this like I wanted to.
The characters in this book were so much fun. I found myself laughing out loud on the second page. Elizabeth has such humor in her writing that it makes you want to...more

I don't have a twitter account and have never tweeted before, but after reading this book I must say I'm quite tempted to start one. Our main character Claire decides to join the masses on twitter and can't believe her luck when her crush begins following her on line. I had some issues understanding why Claire was so hung up on JD (her crush) when she didn't really know anything about him to begin with. An attraction I can understand, but a full out crush on someone who's practically a stranger...more

A fun book that's written a little differently.
Claire has a crush on JD. That gives Bennett an idea and convinces Will to pretend to be JD on Twitter. At first he doesn't agree but in the end, he does. The four friends were awesome. Reminded me of another fun read called A Match Made in High School. For readers who like a different style of writing and book or like just a fun book to read sometimes.

This was such a great book! I first heard of it when I saw one of my GR friends, and a book review I admire had read and reviewed it here and on her youtube channel. Took a look at the description on here, and it looked good. I'll admit I was a bit saddened when I found out there wasn't a Nook version available. Oh well. Then today, I was with my best friend at a mall, and we were at a bookstore. While perusing, I saw a lone copy of this book standing on the shelf. It was practically crying out...more

Tak tahle letní jednohubka dočtena. Nevím jestli to bylo způsobeno tím, že bylo dneska tak nádherně, nebo tím, že jsem to četla v prodlevách mezi učením na zápočet z fyzikální chemie. Nebo tím, že jsem na to zrovna měla náladu. Možná kombinací všeho. Ale nebylo to tak zlé.
Celý příběh se odehrává pouze ve tweetech, e-mailech a blogových příspěvcích. V tom se mi zdá hodně originální. Na druhou stranu je ten koncept podle mě hodně nedotažený. Ale je to celkem svěží a čtení rychle utíká. Měla jsem...more

I cannot believe I read this in one two-hour sitting! It was an oddly addictive read.

From the first few pages I didn't think I'd enjoy Tweet Heart. It was so cheesy and I wasn't sure I'd enjoy the format (it's all in tweets, with some emails and blog posts sprinkled in). But I got over that fairly quickly and the next time I looked up from the book a half hour and 60-some pages had gone by.

Where Tweet Heart shines is it's realism. The plot is simple enough that it could be centered around a frie...more

Tweet Heart, a well packaged deal to discover frienship, life's trifles, and love. A present for all teens who want to learn about life's choices through twittering!

Fast paced and light hearted it keeps you pondering what will happen next. A teen drama that will keep your heart fighting for the main characters to find their partners and love.

A good read!
Brendan
I really enjoyed this. It's a quick and easy read because of the format, but what's really impressive about this is that the characters, both male and female, emerge as fully-formed, three-dimensional people through what they write in 140-character bursts. That's some good writing! Also, it's a really charming and really sweet love story. Highly recommended.

I had no idea the whole book was in tweets but it was kinda a nice surprise. I hope this doesn't catch on otherwise it will be the death of literature. It had some funny moments though, I gave a chuckle here and a chortle there so.. no harm, no foul.

What a beautiful book. I really like that it is written in tweets, blog posts and e-mails. It's a light, perfectly summery read. Kind of cliché, but I didn't mind. It's just so sweet and aww :)

I was actually pleasantly surprised by this book. I had thought a book written completely in e-mails, blogs, and tweets would be some fluff book or something. I don't even have Twitter. However, I had seen plenty of good reviews, so I decided to try it. While this definitely wasn't the best book I've read, I found myself cheering on the characters towards the end. It took me awhile to get into this book, but that's pretty typical, especially because I had to get used to the format. I felt sorry...more

This review is going to be short and sweet and to the point (Just like the book)!

So this book was cute, but that is about it. It was very simple, guy likes girl so he pretends to be her crush on Twitter. Now, reading the tweets was interesting, but it didn't really fill in the blank spots. And why would you express you feelings on twitter or a public blog?
Maybe it's just me, but this doesn't seem like the way to prove your feelings for someone. I mean, how would you feel if someone did what I j...more

Forget everything you think about this book. Whether you think you will like it or you think you will hate it, just forget it. Read the book for yourself because it's not at all what you might think. At least, that's the way it was for me. I loved it and it exceeded all my expectations.

Claire has joined the bandwagon and created a Twitter account. She can now tweet with her closest friends and maybe even her crush. When he starts following her, she finally gets up the nerve to chat with him. Too...more

Well…this was alright… I liked the idea of the book more that I did the actual book. You can’t really get to know any of the characters beyond a superficial level because it’s only set in tweets, emails, and and blog entries. That’s obvious, right? Well I think I would have preferred to have some real life action and then heavy tweeting.

It was also hard for me to connect with Claire, since I’m more like Lottie. Or at least I was when I was in high school. I did like Will though. I married my own...more

Tweet Heart was a pretty quick read and fun to follow. As a big Twitter user myself, I was familiar with the 140-character commenting and felt comfortable reading short blips from each character. The one thing that felt strange were the private conversations the characters etched out for themselves? Unless they were direct messaging, I was unfamiliar with a private tweeting service. I suppose I'll have to check into that. Without that private tweeting though, many of the "I like him. Why isn't h...more

#TweetHeart is an adorable and fun read told in tweets, blogs, and email. I really found this whole tweeting idea really clever and awesome! I enjoyed #TweetHeart from the very first page until the end. @lizrudnick developed a story that is light-hearted with very cute romance!

At first, I was a bit worried about how the story would go because it's pretty challenging to write a story through tweets, blogs, and emails. I thought it was going to be a bit hard to follow and a bit choppy… But no, I w...more

*4.5*

If I was asked to quickly sum up Tweet Heart in one sentence, this is what I would say: Tweet Heart is without a doubt one of the cutest and funniest romances I've read not only this year but ever.

Tweet Heart tells the tale of four teens. Claire is the bookish and hopeless romantic that hopes her true love will follow her on twitter. But wait! Is he already doing so? Her best friend Lottie is the flirt of the group, jumping from guy to guy, hoping to find her own connection to someone spec...more
