Happy Friday, Happy Reading #3

Hi friends! Happy Friday!

A few weeks ago I shared my first post in this new series, Happy Friday Happy Reading. Each week you’ll find a book that I’m currently reading (or just finished), some inspiration, and something helpful!

Planners, Planners! All the planners!!

Y’all! It’s Simplified launch time!! Next Wednesday all of the stunning 2021 planners from Simplified go on sale! Maybe you’re one of those people who’s said “the planner I bought for 2020 was the biggest waste of money” or maybe you’re like me and you’ve been using your planner MORE THAN EVER right now, cause I sure have, I’d be lost if I didn’t write anything down!

So, as I said, the Simplified planners go on sale next week (+ a bunch of other goodies!) and you can get $10 off your first purchase if you click here!) I recommend clicking + putting your email to get the code BEFORE Tuesday/Wednesday because it will make everything so much easier!

I’m hoping to get the Happy Floral cover and my sister is getting the Gold Bee! Which one will you choose??

Along with Simplified Planners, I’m trying something new. The Productivity Planner. I did Productivity Bootcamp (life-changing, and about to do it again!) I know I love the Simplified planners, but they don’t exactly fit all of my needs. I do love how simple they are, but I’m looking for something a little different. As of right now, I’ll use it alongside my SP, which will be mainly used for family stuff!

Read with me!

This weekend I’ll be reading Slay by Brittney Morris and possibly rereading Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi just because I’ve been in the mood for a reread!

About Slay

By day, seventeen-year-old Kiera Johnson is an honors student, a math tutor, and one of the only Black kids at Jefferson Academy. But at home, she joins hundreds of thousands of Black gamers who duel worldwide as Nubian personas in the secret multiplayer online role-playing card game, SLAY. No one knows Kiera is the game developer, not her friends, her family, not even her boyfriend, Malcolm, who believes video games are partially responsible for the “downfall of the Black man.”

But when a teen in Kansas City is murdered over a dispute in the SLAY world, news of the game reaches mainstream media, and SLAY is labeled a racist, exclusionist, violent hub for thugs and criminals. Even worse, an anonymous troll infiltrates the game, threatening to sue Kiera for “anti-white discrimination.”

Driven to save the only world in which she can be herself, Kiera must preserve her secret identity and harness what it means to be unapologetically Black in a world intimidated by Blackness. But can she protect her game without losing herself in the process?

This week I finished reading Atomic Love, which was a fun spy romance story that takes place in the cold war!
