In a departure form my usual bookish talk I thought I would do another post exploring my Bookish Bullet Journal .
Usually my Bullet Journal is very minimalist and functional for use in tracking reading, work tasks and appointments. My monthly spreads tend to stay the same shifting only in colour month to month. However, the month of April heralds the Magical Readathon O.W.Ls which means I have put a bit more artistic flair into my pages and the TBR spread.
The month cover page is showing full house pride with a big sticker of my House. I have also chosen to make Aprils colour scheme Bronze and Blue. The combination looks beautiful.
My monthly page has my at a glance calendar, a tracker for blog posts and a space of for notes on reviews I need to write but have no set date for along with other blog posts.
The second page is a reading tracker. It has a list of my TBR for quick reference, a tracker for my ratings throughout the month and a large space for recording the books read within the month. I like to create small stickers for the cover of each book I intend to read and I use them to track how many pages I have read of each book during my weekly spreads and I place one here once I have finished.
I also have a full page tracker for the overall number of pages I read each day. I find this really encourages me to read, even just a little, each day. Filling this in also has allowed me to see my reading habits, when my readings peak and lulls. This helps me counter act slumps, but I also find it closely corresponds to mental health too.
All of these pages are pretty standard in my monthly apart from the incorporation of the Ravenclaw crest. This month also contains a portion I have dedicated to the O.W.Ls Readathon and I am really quite proud of these pages.
I wanted this title page to really herald the start of the readathon. I thought the inclusion of the Ministry of magic logo would make it seem more official, then realised i have used the magical law enforcement logo instead of the full ministry one. Lets just pretend they over see the examination process! I still think it looks great.
This is the section I am most proud of. Using a combination of the Wizarding career booklet created by G at Book Roast and my own design to make it look like pages from the Daily Prophet. I am so happy with how it turned out. As I have my heart set on being an Alchemist, but know that reading 12 books in one month is a bit of a push for me I have picked Curse breaker as a back up career. Hence the two spreads. As they both share the six Curse Breaker Exams I haven’t overlapped those entries.
If you want to see my whole TBR for the O.W.Ls Readathon it can be found here.
Are you participating in the Magical Readathon this month? What subjects are you taking? Do you Bullet Journal? Have you created any special spreads for April?
