I did something scary but incredibly liberating... I walked away from Facebook.
I deleted the app, logged out and removed it from my quick browse list on the laptop.
I've had enough.
I'd had enough of seeing posts from the same people and missing everyone elses.
I've had enough of random group notifications, clickbait, ads and random bile being spewed everywhere. I've had enough of how much time I waste aimlessly scrolling through the news feed.
So, I'm done.
I'm taking a break and depending on how the break goes I'm deactivating my account, and then if that goes well I'm deleting it.
I'm torn, though.
It's one of the main ways I keep in touch with a lot of family and friends but I've just had enough, you know?
So break time it is!
Anyone else deleted Facebook and found themselves happier for it?
Beyond saying bye bye to Facebook, it's been a hectic week of family visitors, work and doctors appointments!
I'm not going to go on about the doctor's appointments beyond saying I've been feeling off for quite a while and this week decided to speak to the doc. They took a load of blood, called me in about the results, ordered more blood and now I'm waiting to see a specialist.
What I am going to complain about is my poor arm!!
It was still bruised up from the 12 vials they took on the Monday when they decided they needed four more on the Thursday and rather than using the other arm they took it from the same one!
It's every colour under the rainbow now.
At least my mum has arrived to take care of her poor daughter for the next couple of weeks.
Storm of The Gods by Amy Braun
I loved this book SO much. It's UF, with a male lead, and was freaking awesome!
I'm seriously gutted that I can't give it five sparkly shiny stars because I really did love it, however, there were just a few little things that bugged me and that made giving this one a five star feel a bit dishonest (despite how much I loved it)... So four stars it is!
I'm on the blog tour for this one so I won't say anything more before then but if you enjoy UF, and Greek myths and Gods, then please keep an eye out for this one and give it a try!
I'm so excited for the next one already.
One Fell Sweep by Ilona Andrews
This one was a re-read and, man, I love this series too.
I love these authors... I'm a total fangirl and I can't stop and I'm not sorry.
Re-reading this one reminded me that I still haven't reviewed the Innkeeper books from my first read through at the end of last year so I should probably do that at some point...
Two words: DICK SOAP.
(Sorry it's off-centre! I can't make it behave...)
This buzzfeed article lays everything out better than a twitter thread if you want to know more!omg I'm SCREAMING. It turns out a subscription book box had dick soap in it. I thought it would be phallic soap, but it is LITERALLY dick soap. As well as other assorted smut. (I thought this series was YA????) pic.twitter.com/G9JvBQx9vc— Jenna Guillaume (@JennaGuillaume) August 15, 2018
