Twitter Diaries revolves around the friendship between Stella and Tuesday, who get introduced to each other at a New Year's Eve Party. Over the course of the next year, they bond over twitter sharing their thoughts and stories about pretty much everything.

For the most part, I guess this was a decent read but just not as good as I wanted it to be. I knew going in that this was more of a feel-good novel and didn't expect anything big/deep from it but this isn't the first book I've read that (supposedly) takes place on twitter and I loved Goodnight Tweetheart so I honestly thought I'd enjoy this one as well.

The first thing that bugged me was that for a book that's called The Twitter Diaries, not a whole lot of tweeting takes place .The beauty/ugly thing about twitter that the tweets are mostly public but most of this novel takes place through DMs. So yeah, although the author stuck to the character limit, I didn't really get much of a twitter feel.

Don't get me wrong, like most fluffy books this one's a quick and light read, perfect to kill a few hours but that's all it is. The writing's simple, relatable and suits this decade, where social media rules the world.

extraordinary ordinary whimsy Thanks for this review. I adored Goodnight Tweetheart so I was thinking the same thing. Thanks for the heads up on it being more of DMs.
