Bullet Journal Revisited| June 2018

Recs

So, earlier this month I finally ended up sharing my bullet journal with all of you. Now I was thinking maybe you all would also enjoy seeing how it looks when the month is all finished? I figured I would try it out as well and see what everyone thinks.

Nothing really changed in my heading page or my calendar, in fact I don’t think I looked at this calendar once. I am not sure if it is because I did not have a ton to do, or it is not a useful tool to have in here. I think I will be seeing if I use it in July or not to determine if I will continue to add this in the future.

On the left hand side you can see all the posts I posted this past month, while when this picture was taken before the end of the month you can see I have some things written in pencil and some things written in pen. The items written in pen are posted or scheduled, the items in pencil are a rough idea of what I am thinking about posting. This means it may or may not happen or I might post something else entirely. I never stick to this throughout the month, that is why it is always in pencil first.

On the right hand side you can see my monthly stack. I did not create the image, I found it on google and printed it out as a guide. I write the name of the book I finished and then color it when I get around to it.

On the left hand side you can see I kinda stuck to my TBR. I ended up reading 3 of the 5 I planned on reading. For me this is not bad at all since I am a complete mood reader. I don’t think I have ever stuck to a TBR 100% and I don’t think I ever will either.

On the right hand side you can see the books I picked up this month. Since doing my read 5 buy 1 challenge I have slowed down a lot, but I am so happy about it. I am more picky about what I add to my TBR and I tend to read them a lot faster as well.

As of writing this it is June 26th, I have read every day, but this image was taken a few days ago so my color is not up to date.

On the left hand side you can see my update of my Read 5 buy 1, some of the books I bought this month the read 5 page is actually in the previous month. I am not sure if I want to transfer the 3 I have read so far into next month or just leave it here and when I get to a new 5 write into next month. I have a bit of thinking to do.

On the right hand side you can see I mainly only tracked myself going to the gym. As of writing this I went a total of 9 days with a goal of 12. I do have a few days left so I am going to make sure I meet my goal.

Here is just a little peak into my reading progress doe a few of the books I read in June. I am almost caught up with my buddy read a well. Yay!

I kinda participated in the Cramathon this month and here are the books that I planned on reading. The ones with a check next to them are the ones I completed.

This last image is just a picture of a card I got with my order of my new fountain pen. I actually have 3 of them, but I wanted a new one.  I thought the elephant was so adorable I needed to have it in my bullet journal just to look at.

My Current Owned TBR

So earlier I shared my bullet journal and I only shared my layouts for June, well I also wanted to share how I track my physical owned TBR. So like many of you my goodreads TBR is a mixture of owned books and not owned books. Well, since I am doing my Read 5 Buy 1 challenge I wanted a way to better differentiate the two. So I added the following to my bullet journal. Here is my physical, owned TBR!

Bullet Journal | June 2018

Recs

Hello all, I hope this post finds you on a good day. So this month I decided that I would share my bullet journal. I have had a bullet journal for well over a year, but never really thought to post pictures of it or anything until a fellow blogger Charlotte mentioned that she would be interested in seeing mine. So I decided that for June I would share what I drew for the upcoming month. Without anymore delay here is my bullet journal! DividerHere is my main June page. I always have a doodle on one side and a vertical calendar  on the other. I tend to write when my library books are due or when I have a buddy read section “due”. This month I went with a “future” type theme. This is why throughout my layouts you will see runes, crystal balls, crystals, tarot cards and feathers.

The next layout is my monthly overview where I write the blog posts I plan on writing. Now I don’t stick to this perfectly, but I like having a good idea of what I want to write and any reviews I plan on writing. On the right hand side I doodle a book when I finish one. I took inspiration from BookandLala from Youtube. So far I have read 0 books mainly because I have been very busy, but I hope to turn that around soon. On this page I drew some tarot cards, though not very well.

My TBR page on the left, now if you have seen my post: June TBR | 2018 those books are now written on this page. On the other side I can write all the books I picked up since my last book haul. I will not be adding the books I got from bookcon because I posted a separate haul for that. You can find that here: Book Haul | Bookcon 2018

So this page is just for me to keep track of how many days over the month. As you can see I have updated this already. So while I have been too busy to finish a book, I have been making time to read at least a little bit.

These are my tracker pages. On the left I make a mock letter from the Ministry of Magic saying I am banned from buying too many books. I am currently doing a Read 5 Buy 1 challenge. I have been doing very well on it. I will say It was on hold when I went to bookcon because I wanted to live the bookish life. On the other side I have decided to track the days I do to the gym. My goal is to go about 12 times a month so I am not off track just yet.

Here is a little peak on how I track my reading. I write down the title of the book and then a box is a chapter or a section of a chapter depending on how the book is split up.

So there you have it my June bullet journal layouts. I hope you enjoyed a little peak into it and let me know if you would like to see what happens to these spreads when the month is all through.
