My Reading Journal!

I was inspired by Maisy over at Hawthorn Book Reviews‘s lovely bullet journal spreads and today I’ll be sharing some of my own reading journal pages!

I always thought my reading journal was very messy and haphazard – as far from aesthetic as possible, and I am terrible at ripping washi tape – but I posted a flip-through reel on my #bookstagram that people surprisingly seemed to like, so I guess maybe it’s not so bad 😂

I do my monthly spreads like this – mainly to organise and plan my #bookstagram posts:

My monthly spreads are mostly about organising and less about art, but I do try and keep it neat and somewhat pretty 😂 The prompts in each day are a mix-up of different monthly photo challenges – I like to blend different ones together to come up with a post idea.

I’m currently planning a BTS-themed bookstagram photo challenge for May, I’m really excited! I made one for Alec Benjamin’s songs back in September last year and it was so much fun.

I also love drawing little book spines for my review notes – I scribble down my thoughts before I type up a full or mini-review:

The one I drew for Rumaysa is my favourite and probably the most detailed one I’ve done so far – I was trying to match the book cover!

I also drew out a page for the BTS readathon that ran back in March!

I was in the ‘hyung line’ team!

I had a lot of fun playing around with my water brush pens, I think my favourite is the heading for j-hope!

Thanks for reading! What did you think? I’ve just finished my first actual bujo spread (it’s for the song ‘BBIBBI’ by IU!) and will probably post that later this week. Do you keep a reading journal? Do you track reading digitally, on paper or not at all? Let me know in the comments!
