This month I took some inspiration for my bullet journal from a youtuber named Layla, I will link her video down below if you would like to see her spreads. I mainly used her layout for the September page. I have been loving tea and I recently took a trip to Massachusetts and I noticed the leaves were already changing so when I saw this spread I was still thinking a lot about my trip and decided to make it my own in a way.
So this month I decided to try and make my monthly spread a little bigger than I have previously. Last month I tried to do daily spreads and I stopped using them after the first or second week so I thought that if I made this monthly spread a little bigger I can add more of the details if I feel like it. Since this was the first time I did this layout you can see my calendar has little stilts, regardless I still really like it. I also, have noticed I like adding when library books are due and when my buddy read discussions are happening and what pages they will cover. It helps me stay a bit more organized.
On the left hand side of this page you can see my September TBR, or should I say my mostly Stephen King TBR. I am actually buddy reading two of the books this month so that is exciting! On the right hand side is where I write in and color the books I read throughout the month.
Last month I started having a sleep tracker and I really enjoyed it. I really got to see some patterns I was unable to really notice before. So I decided I wanted to continue to do this. I also left the hours blank at this time because I don’t know if I enjoyed the format or not I used last month, starting at 12 midnight. So, until I decide I am leaving it blank.
On the right hand side I have my monthly overview for blog posts. I left this blank so for now so I don’t share too much information.
On the left side I have my read 5, buy 1 challenge. I will openly admit I failed last month because I went on vacation and I stopped at a few literary places and I wanted to get a few books to commemorate my visit. I feel no shame in it because it is not like I will go to the Alcott Orchard House or the House of the Seven Gables anytime soon.
On the right side I have my chapter/progress markers for my TBR. If you have not seen this before, I color in a block for a chapter/section I finish reading within a book to track my progress visually instead of looking at the percent all the time on goodreads. I find that when I always look at goodreads I read for shorter amounts of time than if I track it in my notebook.
