Book Review: Here Lies Bridget by Paige Harbison

Here Lies Bridget by Paige Harbison

Bridget Duke is the textbook mean girl. She's very popular and has loyal friends that she treats terribly. She's rude to teachers and lashes at out home. One day, Bridget dies.

Ok so, I read this book in about a day or so. I think it was because it moved pretty quickly and the language was easy to understand. I enjoyed Bridget's stepmom Meredith the most out of all the characters. She was the most developed. I also really liked Bridge's ex-boyfriend Liam. Unfortunately, the author made Bridget so ridiculously immature and bitchy, that I couldn't care less about her. Even when she began to have some insight on herself and how she treated others, I was more interested in how the other characters would react to her apologies. The very end of the book is unforgivable. It ended abruptly and strangely. It was almost as if someone else wrote the last few pages.

I recommend this book if you haven't read Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver, otherwise you will be continuously comparing it to that and will be disappointed.

I received this book free of charge from the publisher, Harlequin, through Netgalley, in exchange for an honest and truthful review. This, in no way, affected my opinion or review of this book.


  1. I looked back at my review for this one, and I'm surprised I even gave it a 3. I think it was more like a 2...I really didn't like it either. Bridget's transformation was WAY too fast and unbelievable.

    Great honest review :)

  2. Hm, I haven't read many positive reviews about this one. I like the premise, but I think I'll read Before I Fall instead. Thanks for your review!

  3. I love your review! You are so honest about it and I know what you mean about not liking the MC. It's hard to get through the book when you don't like the MC. I won't waste my time on this one.



I appreciate your comments!
