I’ve enjoyed this series a lot. This book was by far my favorite of the trilogy. The beginning was a little slow, but it picked up quickly and it was absolutely amazing.  I laughed and I cried and I swooned. I get easily immersed into books and this one was just like that. I didn’t put it down until I had read it cover to cover. Such a good book.

MY FAVOURITE BOOK I'VE EVER READ!!! 

i loved this book so much, the story was just as amazing as it was in a 'good girls guide to murder' and 'good girl, bad blood'. i fell more in love with the characters and i cried so much at the end as i didn't want to let them go - it being the last book in the trilogy. i think about this book 24/7 it's my absolute favourite. it makes me wonder if holly jackson had everything planned out from a 'good girls guide'. a must read if you enjoy murder mystery books!! read the first two in the trilogy before this one though as there are links to the previous books you probably wouldn't fully understand without reading the first two.

this book broke me. i stayed up late at night to finish it, and i just feel empty. although, it's now one of my favourite books of all time.
Spoiler "hey sarge, remember me?" was the thing that got me :'(
i would definitely recommend the whole trilogy though <3

Okay, I am giving this book four stars. As Good As Dead is well-written and makes sense when you look at the AGGGTM trilogy as a whole, but I can't write this review without mentioning how disappointed I am. I am a spoiler-free reviewer so I can't get into why I am disappointed, but let's just say it has everything to do with the main character. If you have read the first two titles and want to know how Pip's story ends, go ahead and read this one. As much as I liked the first two books in this trilogy if you haven't gotten caught up in these stories yet do yourself a favor and stay away. Trust me, this book with fuck with your emotions and not in a good way.
