    Hello, yes, everyone please read this book when it releases in May 2019. It's freaking fantastic.

    I read this in practically one sitting, because I just literally could not be away from it for five minutes before I started going over suspects in my head. And boy there were so MANY. I wanted to make my own murder board at times. There were so many twists and turns that had me questioning everything every few chapters or so. And that ending!

    I read this in practically one sitting, because I just literally could not be away from it for five minutes before I started going over suspects in my head. And boy there were so MANY. I wanted to make my own murder board at times. There were so many twists and turns that had me questioning everything every few chapters or so. And that ending! Even when you think things have are about to be neatly wrapped up - BAM, another twist. And then another. AND ANOTHER.

    Pure genius.

    I love love loved the multi media format - it was extremely fresh and everything seemed very well researched.

    So yeah basically pre order the heck out of this book, yeah?

    What a wild ride

  • Jessica (Jess Hearts Books)

    Simply one of the best YA thrillers I've read in recent years. Holly Jackson's pacing is relentless hitting you with twist after twist that genuinely had me gasping out loud. As a well seasoned reader of thrillers and mysteries it takes a LOT to surprise me, and reader, this book surprised me. Not just once, but multiple times. I honestly can't recommend this book enough. Just be warned that once you start it, you won't be able to stop until you find Andie.

    Rounded up from 4.5 stars. This is a YA crime thriller, and I enjoyed it so much!

    In a small town, 5 years ago, a young girl called Andie went missing and they could never find her. Her ex-boyfriend (Sal) is found dead just a few days later leaving solid proof that he did it and he took his own life.

    Rounded up from 4.5 stars. This is a YA crime thriller, and I enjoyed it so much!

    In a small town, 5 years ago, a young girl called Andie went missing and they could never find her. Her ex-boyfriend (Sal) is found dead just a few days later leaving solid proof that he did it and he took his own life. So, the police closes the case, and declared Sal as the murderer and Andie dead.

    5 years after, Pip, a brilliant student chooses the case as her homework. But, in her mind, she never believed Sal was guilty, so she's going to try to prove that. Who killed Andie? And where is she?

    First of all, this was way more complex and well built than I had expected because it's the debut of the author. It was gripping from the first page, I read it in 2 sittings (and it's 430 pages long!) I literally couldn't put it down.

    It's written in a format that we see Pip's documentation for her homework, sometimes in diary format, sometimes maps, drawings or interviews with people she talked to. At other times, it's told from third person perspective to get the story moving.

    I very much enjoyed this format, as it didn't make the book monotonous. It was interesting to treat it as a case, being solved in front of my eyes, and I did try to solve it :)

    I had many scenarios going in my head, and figured out some, but certainly not fully. It was full of twists and turns until the last moment. I'll be honest, I could hear my heart beating at some points.

    Another aspect I loved was the characters, Pip was a lot of fun. It was humorous at times. It didn't feel heavy hearted because of a murder case. No trigger warnings or any gritty details, which is a big plus for me.

    Weren't there any 'coincidences' or 'conveniences'? Yes, there were. The book was a tad long, and maybe it'd be better if it was stripped down a few details.

    BUT, as a whole, I sure enjoyed my time a lot. I don't mind the conveniences at all, as they were a very minor con compared to the thrilling sense I got from this book, and enjoyed my time.

    I'd auto-buy Holly Jackson's next book for sure.

    If you're looking for a good YA thriller, with a good chase and fun characters, don't miss this! And, if you enjoyed One Of Us Is Lying, you'll surely enjoy this.

    I read this in like 5/6 hours so if that doesn’t tell you how good it is, idk what will

  • Robin Stevens

    Absolutely addictive and immersive, this is a brilliant contemporary murder mystery perfect for fans of my books who want to step up into YA fiction. Can you guess who killed Andie Bell? (12+)

    Ok so I’ve had a full 24hours to get over how spectacular ‘A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder’ by Holly Jackson is and I now feel semi ready to write a review.

    So where do I start, WOW, WOW, WOW! I needed this book. Reading had become so boring lately and this book slapped me right across the face and made me sit up straight and pay attention!

    Ok so I’ve had a full 24hours to get over how spectacular ‘A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder’ by Holly Jackson is and I now feel semi ready to write a review.

    So where do I start, WOW, WOW, WOW! I needed this book. Reading had become so boring lately and this book slapped me right across the face and made me sit up straight and pay attention!

    I loved everything about this book. The humour, the characters, the secrets, the emotions. I genuinely laughed out loud and burst out crying at this book (more than once!). My partner was beside me and asked why I was crying and when I told him he said he wished he hadn’t asked.

    IT’S THAT SAD and emotional and heart breaking BUT it’s also the most uplifting, heartwarming, totally fangirling novel, AND if that’s not enough it’s also a terrifying, edge of your seat, I’m scared to go to the toilet in the dark kind of story. Now do you understand why I couldn’t write the review yesterday?

    So what’s it about? Well, my totally awesome, geeky spirit animal Pippa aka Pip chooses a closed case to write and research for her end of year project. It’s an open and shut case as far as the town and police are concerned. 1 girl dead, murdered by her boyfriend, boyfriend panicked and killed himself before police could arrest him. The end! Pippa isn’t convinced though and when she acquires an unlikely “partner in crime” the two of them will stop at nothing to get to the truth. Even if it means putting themselves and their families in danger!

    This is a must read for everyone who enjoys a crime novel, psychological thriller, murder mystery, YA fiction, love story. It covers every genre and don’t let the YA category put you off. I am nearly 30 & it is by far my favourite read this year.

    Can I finish by saying how amazing is the cover? It instantly caught my eye. I love it!

    Thank you to netgalley and the publisher for a free ARC in return for an honest review. This is going to be a best seller without a doubt!

    I WANT A NETFLIX SERIES!

    Two days after Andie’s disappearance, her boyfriend Sal commits suicide confessing to her murder. Now, five years later Pippa, a budding journalist who believes in Sal’s innocence, uses Andie’s presumed murder as a final project. Determined to solve the mystery, Pip enlists the help of Sal’s brother Ravi and what they find could be dangerous.

    Holly Jackson created a complex mystery in A GOOD GIRL’S GUIDE TO MURDER without falling into the trope teenagers knowing more than the police. Because Pip knew Sal through her best friend’s older sister, she felt invested in his innocence, especially after meeting Ravi. Jackson created a number of credible suspects, who either had reason to kill Andie, if she was in fact dead. Some suspension of belief is required, but mostly she just followed the info like anyone who had watched or read procedural dramas could.

    Pip is fearless, often too gutsy. She often fails to understand the impact of her questioning on those she questioned. I liked her a lot.

    At times the pace of A GOOD GIRL’S GUIDE TO MURDER lagged with details and clues, but over all Jackson kept the story moving along with the use of transcripts, police reports and Pip’s notes. Jackson surprised me with some twists at the end, though I did predict part of the resolution a lot of my theories were incorrect.

    A GOOD GIRL’S GUIDE TO MURDER is a fun mystery with a satisfying conclusion.

  • Elise (TheBookishActress)

    guys this looks like a cool she-did-that thriller i support it

  • Savannah Brown

    Twisty, compulsive, and so so clever. Loved how organically the mystery unfolded - the investigation never felt beyond the realms of what a teenager would be able to do on their own (made even more believable by Pip's realistic - and often hilarious - voice). I tried to stay ahead of Pip/Jackson at first but eventually was more than content to just let them take me on the ride. You're gonna want this in May.
