Twittercide [twit-er-sahyd]: the killing of one human being by another while the victim is in the act of tweeting.Social Sucide by Gemma Halliday
Call me crazy, but I figured writing for the Herbert Hoover High Homepage would be a pretty sweet gig. Pad the resume for college applications, get a first look at the gossip column, spend some time ogling the paper’s brooding bad-boy editor, Chase Erikson. But on my first big story, things went... a little south. What should have been a normal interview with Sydney Sanders turned into me discovering the Homecoming Queen-hopeful dead in her pool. Electrocuted while Tweeting. Now, in addition to developing a reputation as HHH’s resident body finder, I’m stuck trying to prove that Sydney’s death wasn’t suicide.
I’m starting to long for the days when my biggest worry was whether the cafeteria was serving pizza sticks or Tuesday Tacos..
Series: Deadly Cool #2

This series is one of my favorite contemporary stories I've read so far, and I am so glad that this second installment didnt disappoint me at all. I loved the first book and as always our heroine Hartley never fails to amuse me, whenever, wherever. If you are looking for a fun, cute and quick read, this book is for you.
I enjoyed this a lot. A murder mystery with a slight romantic twist and a suspense in finding the culprit. Apparently Hart is yet caught in another dead-body scene, but this one is different mind you. Its called Twittercide. This young girl Sydney died while on Twitter, but the question is, did she kill herself or someone did it?
The best things I liked in this book is Hartley ofcourse, this young lady is so hilarious and curious. The rest of the characters are just great plus the new ones, especially Hart's bestfriend Sam. And Chase, he is hot and he intrigues me so much! He is like these boys I liked so much when I was younger, challenging and hard to get! gah! I dont understand what the heck was he waiting for? Obviously Chase and Hart are so good together. I think Chase needs something to wake him up a lil bit. Maybe a love triangle will do! *fist pumps* I just wish the next book we will be seeing alot of Chase and Hartley romance, should be more intense and deeper.
Definitely worth picking up if you are a fan of the first book. I had loads of fun. Looking forward for the third book.
