I am back with my monthly bookish bullet journal post! I have some new additions to my monthly pages and some changes to my weekly spreads to correspond with my July Goals.
I have set myself some lofty goals for July revolving around exercise, my writing and with my July TBR.
I am aiming to
Walk At least 10K steps a day
Participate in Camp NaNoWriMo and write every day
Clear some books off of my Netgalley back list.
I am going write a post with my Camp NaNo Goals so if you are interesting in my projects and what I am wanting to do with them this month you can find out all about them in tomorrows blogpost.
For my tackling my Netgally backlist I am aiming to read 11 books! This would take my Netgalley% to over 60%! I have a full post with my potential TBR here
For my 10k steps I am going to go on a walk every day and be keep track of my progress on Instagram with little Daily Reels. Here is Day 1:
And of course I track everything in my bullet Journal!
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 GellyRoll – Moonlight 06
Marvey LePen – Periwinkle and Dark Grey
Muji rollerball 0.5 – Black
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. Recently I have been splitting this into two further sections to keep track of ARCs for review and any books I haul so I can do my book haul posts.
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. I have also now added a Blog Posts section to the bottom of this page. This allows me to plan what posts I want to do on what days and to keep on top on any blog tours.
I don’t have a list of my full Netgalley TBR anywhere so I decided to add it into my bullet journal so I could tick off when I have completed each book. I still have to finish adding in books as there are still a few backlist books I need to add but I have listed some as an example of how I will use this page.
My Writing Goals for Camp Nano and Writing Sessions Tracker. 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.
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 not much more.
I have made some changes this month to help track all my goals. I have the daily step count beside the date and then I have split the Day boxes in two. The top will track my writing I am setting little mini goals for what I want to work on each day. The Lower box is for my reading. I 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!
