It Started With A Tweet
Daisy Hobson lives her whole life online. A marketing manager by day, she tweets her friends, instagrams every meal and arranges (frankly, appalling) dates on Tinder. But when her social media obsession causes her to make a catastrophic mistake at work, Daisy finds her life going into free-fall . . .
Her sister Rosie thinks she has the ...more
It took me a few chapters to get into, but I stuck with it because Anna Bell's books make me laugh so much.
Daisy is so full of life that she comes alive on the page. She was slightly frustrating at times, but the best characters always are, and I quickly grew to love her.
Although there is a spark, romance is not at the heart of this book. I focuses much more on family and friendship and I absolutely loved it. It felt refreshing. And frie ...more
Seeing as I have quite a dry, sarcastic sense of humour, it can take quite a lot to be able to make me laugh. I don't mean a little titter, I mean a proper belly laugh. The sort which brings tears to your eyes, pain to your sides, and a grin bigger than a Cheshire cat's.
Wanna know something shamazing?
Anna Bell had me belly laughing after a couple of pages. A COUPLE OF PAGES! I'm not even joking! The fact that I was able ...more
If that’s the case you’ll really be able to identify with Daisy. You’ll be laughing as well as cringing with her, as she plunges headlong into her digital detox with her sister Rose.
I really enjoyed this book, it was so easy to read making me laugh out loud on m ...more
Utterly hilarious and a perfect way to spend a few hours while waiting for a transfer back the airport at the end of the holiday. Of course I had I read this at any point over the previous 2 weeks I would have been saying generally that is a perfect poolside read.
From the fun and clearly social media addicted start of the book Daisy soon makes a vital error tweeting something inappropriate from the wrong twitter account, which since I now have multiples I can completely understand the fear.
To me, a contemporary romance can veer very quickly into the cheesy/ overly predictable/ ridiculous however, gets it bang on for me. It's a great mix of humour with interesting characters and a fun and engaging storyline.
I really loved daisy as a character. Even at the start, when she seems a little silly, I found myself warming to her, especially as the novel continues and you realise that, although she definitely has her flaws (as do many of her friends), sh ...more
Anna Bell has a new book out?! Well, then give it to me immediately. I love her writing style and was really excited to start reading this one. The title is perfect for it and the story really makes you think.
We get to follow Daisy Hobson, who is on her phone constantly, whether it’s tweeting her friends, uploading a pic on Instagram or looking for dates on Tinder. She is a marketing manager and really obsessed with social media. I ...more
Não posso dizer que seja uma viciada das redes sociais, pouco exponho da minha vida privada e sou tão nariz no ar que nunca perdi tempo a tentar a aceitação dos outros ou a chamar a atenção para a minha pessoa. Mas ler este livro fez me ver a sociedade que temos e como a maioria passou a ser dependente de selfies, Facebook, Twitter, linkedin, Instagram, etc...
Se conhecessem alguém e não tivessem telemóvel, internet, como iriam fazer para saber mais sobre ele?!!! Pois é!!! Pa ...more
The idea for the story was very up to present-day.
I liked also the story of Rosie's marriage problems.
just because they’ve had their happy ending doesn’t mean they’re living happily ever after
There were interesting (and witty) supporting characters.
Nonetheless, the style of writing, of holding my attention was far from perfect. I can't tell I was bored but... I don't know. Something was lacking, like to me.
A fantastically written book about Daisy and how her life is turned upside down by an innocent tweet!
This is guaranteed to make you laugh whilst at the back of your mind you acknowledge how genius the storyline of this book is. I really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it to others :)
Anna Bell belongs to my auto - buy authors, guys, and I really don't need to read the blurb to her new book because I know it's going to be brilliant and just my cup of tea. I fell in love with her writing style, and her stories are not only incredibly hilarious but also close to life and full of wonderful, livid characters, and I am always waiting impatiently for her new release.
The heroine, Daisy, was such a typical Anna Bell's character - bubbly and quirky, full of life, always getting in tro ...more
This book is very Bridget Jones with updated technology. Imagine if Bridget had twitter in book 1! Good lord. I can't say I was able to relate to Daisy's addiction to technology and the way she and her friends behaved with their phones was horrendous.
After making a huge mistake at work and getting herself fired Daisy finds h ...more
This was a nice,funny and thought provoking read.
Daisy is a brilliant woman, her life is dictated by her excessive use of the web and social medias but everything she knows will drastically change when she mistakenly sends a personal tweet from her working account.Could she be happy again with her sister intervention?
I loved all the characters but our heroine have a special place in my heart,I've suffered with her during her digital detox and I was glad when she has found her happy place.
Have a read, have a laugh and if you use a device, use it to read a good book that makes you reflect as well.
More from Anna Bell for me.

I’m sure we’ve all done it. We’ve gone to post something on Facebook or Twitter and then just before you hit the big red button you realise you’re posting on the wrong account or posting to the wrong person. Luckily we usually manage to stop ourselves before we’ve gone past the point of no return! Unlike poor old Daisy!!
