I am back with my monthly bookish bullet journal post! I have my new look Title page, new additions to my monthly pages to make it even more bookish than last year.
I always use a Nuuna dotted note book as my bullet journal. The large 256 page journals usually last me around 6-8 months and then I use the smaller 128 page journal in the second half of the year. I Have chosen the Moon Journal for this year as I really love how crisp and clean it looks and I have always loved moon and star based designs. If you would like to see my Yearly pages you can find them in this post …. Bookish Bullet Journal 2022.
I like that the Nunna Notebooks are slightly larger than A5 with 0.5 dot spacing. This year I am trying something new with my Monthly layouts when it comes to choosing colour scheme. As the journal is moon themed I have decided my colour choices should be moon themed. I also really love the greyscale look of this journal so I am keeping grey’s and blacks as my primary pens and only adding in a splash of colour.
This months pen choices are
Sakura Gelly Roll Urban – Blue Grey
Marvey LePen – Jade Green
Muji rollerball 0.5 – Black
I have jazzed up my Title pages from last year, just to look prettier and to stick to the Moon theme. March’s correspondences include Crow, Willow Tree and the colour Pale Green so I have incorporated them into my design. I tend to bookmark this page just to make it easy to flick back to it and find this month pages.
This is my usual Monthly spread with four sections. The calendar is used just to mark down quick appointments, birthdays etc. and the Important section is where I can make longer notes and future planning. Here I will usually just mark the day and then the associated information. When filling in next months calendar I can glance back and mark in any important dates I have made note of.
The left hand page contains my Books Read section. I don’t keep my TBR in my Journal instead I mark off the books I have read. I print little stickers of each book cover that I read in the month and paste them in this section along with the star rating and page count. At the end of the month I can easily see what books I have read and what I thought of them.
My Writing Goals and Sessions. I write notes at the end of each session of writing I do, I note down what section I was working on, how I feel and where I want to go next. This means when I start my next session I can get back into the writing zone easier by reviewing these notes. It keeps me on track to keep my writing going throughout the year.
I have recently started a new project that is progressing faster than any project I have worked on before and as I am doing a lot of world building and character creating I have decided to do the 100 Day writing challenge by Tim Clare which is part of his podcast Death of 1000 cuts which covers all kinds of things related to writing. I have made a little spread to keep track of my progress over the 31 one days of March.
Weekly and Book Review spreads
Through out the month I have a page for each book I read that I make when I start each book this will have my notes and ESCAPE Score for each read. In the top left hand corner I stick a sticker of the book cover and to fill in the title author(s) etc.
My Weekly spread I keep as simple as possible. Its just plain boxes with the date and nothing more. This gives me space to fill in any formation i need to record, appointments, major to-dos. I also print mini book cover stickers and paste them in with the number of pages read so I can keep track of that day by day!
