A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder (A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder, #1) by Holly Jackson 

I didn’t quite know how I would feel about this story going into it. I haven’t read too many mysteries (although I do watch a lot of them) but I’m so, so glad I picked this one up! I loved Pip and Ravi from the first introduction. They’re smart characters with their wits about them and their determination to solve Andie’s murder and prove Sal’s innocence was great. I was on Pip and Ravi’s side from minute one and never thought Sal actually did it. But there were so many potential suspects and I kept changing my mind about who I thought did it and what I thought happened.

I also really liked the layout of the book, where you get Pip’s notes and interviews along with the story itself. Very well done!

If you, like me, adored Veronica Mars and/or Home Before Dark, definitely check out this book! It’s absolutely gripping and enthralling.

I can’t wait to read the next book and find out what’s in store for Pip and Ravi!

Thoughts as I read [SPOILERS]:

– Pip is great.
– Love Ravi already.
– I’m trying to work out the mystery and keep changing my thoughts on what happened lmao.
– Pip’s notebook and research process is really good – my only critique is how she cited her footnotes lmaoooo. You need more info than just the URL, Pip!
– Her parents are fantastic.
– I want to know why, at their trip to the Ivy, Pip didn’t pick up on the guy with the HH initials. GURRRRRRL HE’S SUSPECT TOOOOOOO.
– The backstory the others were hiding reminded me so much of I Know What You Did Last Summer.
