Doc Vindicated Omigod! Omigod! I freaking loved this book...what am I saying I freaking loved this series!!!! This is the first series since I read Twilight that I have given all the books in the series five stars. This series was just so emotional. I really thought that we were going to lose one of the main characters at the end of the book. I was just so hysterical. Usually I would fling my book at the wall but I was reading my Kindle and if I threw that at the wall...let's just say my parents would not be the happiest parents in the world. I really thought I would end up giving this book a four because the ending would end up being a flop. Thank god it wasn't! I think I would have died if it was. This book was very bittersweet. Jessica had to go visit her mom who after seeing her scars still didn't believe her about the whole angels deal, and then she actually somewhat got along with her after that got out. I was bawling my eyes out when Alex's time was up. I literally crying, and I rarely cry when it comes to books. Keary Taylor I salute you! Then when Jessica switched places with Alex I was just shocked. Like I expected it to happen but I didn't know that it would happen like that. This book just had o many ups and downs I just didn't know what was going to happen, what to feel when reading certain parts. It was just so emotional! I just really love this series. I just really want copies of the books. I'm just waiting for Ms. Taylor's reply to my email about a signed copy. Hopefully I get it soon! *fingers crossed* but I do have to stay within budget range. *sigh* Either way, all of you people need to go read this book. It's not an option. If you read this your life will not be the same. Go READ IT AND ENJOY! =).

Bestseller Books Vindicated I hate this series almost too much to joke about. Almost.Spoilers from books 1 & 2.I am pleased that my first book series of the year has taken the initiative and already found me my most unlikable protagonist of 2016. Because I really, *really* genuinely hope that I never read another series where I am stuck in the head of such an unlikable creature. In the first book Jessica was pretty sympathetic, what with not being able to sleep without literal torture. Then came the second book and every shred of sympathy or likability was stripped away at lightning speed as she spent the entire book moaning about not getting married. Like this man literally saves your life at the cost of his own and your response is "waaaaah I know you're dead and not permanent on Earth but marry me or I'm going to pick fights constantly and emotionally shut down". Way to repay his sacrifice. And speaking of Alex... I spent the first book expecting him to be an angel because of how inhumanly perfect he seemed. Nope. Nothing supernatural about him, he's just an average guy willing to go to insane lengths to keep someone he barely knows happy. Because proposing to someone you've known a month and a half is certainly a good idea. I mean it's not like marriage is meant to be a lifetime commitment over which you will mature and grow and change into different people and it's almost impossible to know if someone will be compatible for that in barely more time than you get as a free trial for World of Warcraft.So our characters are unlikable and too inhuman to relate to. Is the world building good? Eeeeh. It's an interesting idea, the whole angel judgment thing, except that it falls apart if you think too hard about it. What do the angels base their code of morals on? There is no God present and in the bible it is only God who can judge so we must assume that this is removed from Christianity. So then why are their weird rules against things like prostitution? Who gets to decide what is morally good and bad? Which leads me to my biggest problem with this series...This series hit my rage button. And by "hit" I really mean "played a drum solo on it". Let's talk about suicide and mental illness. This series (and by proxy I must assume author) makes it abundantly clear that they consider committing suicide to be a guaranteed trip to hell. In response I'd like to tell the author to go fuck herself. This is compounded by the fact that the protagonist views being sent to a mental institute as the worst conceivable crime a mother could commit to her child. Allow me to add some context. Imagine you are a mother. At age 5 your daughter nearly dies from a sickness and shortly after begins having nightmares every night in which she says angels are judging and condemning her over and over. Over the course of 11 years you try many things to help your child but at age 16 she is still having the nightmares and has largely stopped sleeping. In a desperate attempt to do anything to help your child you decide maybe sending her to a place where she can get 24 hour treatment from professionals is a good idea. Your child's response is to run away and refuse any contact with you ever again. Also inside the universe everyone agrees with the protagonist and no one tries to defend the sanity of the mother's choice. Yeah that's totally relatable. /s This book is (possibly unintentionally) very opinionated about mental health and always in the worst ways. Being "crazy" is the absolute worst thing possible and a terrible insult, unless of course you're the main character judging the old woman she cares for. So yeah, to keep the rest of this rant short, the series was bad but the disgusting views on mental health pushed it into irredeemable territory.Oh and the ending was a bullshit cop out. Just sayin'.
