this was a review...now it's a rant

its 1 am and im so tired but do y'all know whats more important than sleep? books. and photosynthesis so show your neighborhood plant some affection. I may or may not have just gotten my lesson plan for the science class I'm taking *shrieks in nerd*.
I was here to talk about lovely reckless but I think there are other things that need to be addressed. I've been doing a lot of reflecting recently, about my flaws and who I am blah blah blah. you can ask my boyfriend I am very bad at articulating and understanding my feelings. but I have found that when I read a book I see characters with flaws or messing crap up I can go "oh...hey...I do that". but here's the kicker. most of the posts on here in which I negatively reviewed a book, it was usually because the character was flawed. because the main girl was too needy or she had issues etc etc. now this isn't every book...some books just have crappy characters. but I think I have to work on differentiating between crappy and real. and thats a blurry line let me tell you.  so I'm gonna hush now but heres a standing ovation for some of the novels I have shit talked here. and heres a bigger round of applause for the authors who were able to make real people. ya I didn't like them for their flaws because you made them painfully relatable. you made them come to life. you made me realize that a perfect character doth not a perfect book make.
so
with this in mind
I'm going to go order several more books on the amazon prime, try to understand the characters as multifaceted beings whose flaws do not guarantee a bad book, take some allergy medicine, and finish the last movie in the twilight series. it's on amazon prime for free fyi ur welcome
thanks for reading

Soul Screamers

seven books. two days. i regret every decision that has lead me to this point. welcome to the danger zone my chummies. ill never say that again ever I swear but it felt right in the moment. so basically it's the end of the cycle and im cramming grades and assignments when I stumble upon this series and this is one of those series that if you want any closure at all you have to read all seven books and because I'm obsessive I finished them in two days. again r e g r e t. thanks a lot Rachel Vincent now I'm failing spanish. ya know I do this every time I start talking only to realize y'all don't care so ill talk about the book. FIRST OF ALL. the character has the same name as me different spelling, lives really close to where I live, her best friend and my best friend go to the same college, she's described to look the same as me, and we like the same obscure ice cream flavor from ben and jerry's. COINCIDENCE. I THINK NOT.
I just found this (I passed my classes if anyone cares)and because I read this so long ago and don't really remember ill hit the highs and lows I do in short brief points
good stuff:
-good romance
-great characters
-nothing like I've ever read before in that the supernatural stuff is very original
-funny one lines
bad stuff:
-lots of filler writing (seven books could have been four)
-the author spelled kayleigh as Kaylee. incorrect.

that is all.
adios
