2019 Bullet Journal

Hello lovelies! How are you? Today’s blog post is all about my 2019 bookish bullet journal set up. I have always been interested in doing a bullet journal and then I saw Kristen from Super Space Chick’s lay bullet journal video that she recently did and I just knew that I wanted to d one. Now 90% of this layout is her layout so I wanted to do a shoutout to her. I did not create this layout. Please leave me a comment down if you guys have a bullet journal. Hope you have a great day. 

So my bullet journal is the Leuchtturm 1917 A5 Bullet Journal in the colour berry. I am in love with it. So my first pages are quotes pages. On the left I decided to write “twelve new chapters. 365 chances” and on the right I wrote “hello 2019”.  I wanted to start off my bucket journal with New Years inspired quotes. 

img_2867

The next page is my 2019 stats. At the end of each month I want  to write down the amount of followers I have, the number of book is read and the number of books I hauled. I just like the visual representation of this.  On the opposite side I have my marked as read page. I have a mini calendar for each month of the year. I plan on colouring a day in when I finish a book on that day. I feel like this will be interesting in seeing if there is a pattern on when I finish books. 

img_2868

My title page for my Reading Challenges are on the next page. The right of the page is my Goodreads reading challenge. I decided to draw aa book. Along the spine of the book are numbers from 5 to 130. Whenever I read five books I will colour in a section of the book. My goal is to reach 100 books. 

img_2869

The next three pages are my Popsugar Reading 2019 Challenge. There are 40 prompts for you to read. Fr example “read a book with over 1 million ratings on Goodreads” or “read a book including a wedding”. I think that this will be a fun way in getting out of my comfort zone. 

img_2870

I have a goal of reading one classic a month. So I decided to make a page listing all of the classics that I want to read this year. 

img_2871

The next two pages are my 2019 rereads and my signed booked collection.  I really want to reread books in 2019, so when I reread a book I will write down on this page. I would love to keep track of the books that I get signed too.

img_2872

Another page that I have is my 2019 OwlCrate page. This is where I will write down the books that I get in each OwlCrate box and at the end of the year I will see the amount of OwlCrate book that I have read. The page next to it is my January title page. 

img_2873

Additionally I have my January TBR. This page I will right down the five books that I plan to read that month. On the next page I have is my haul page this is where I will write down all of the books that I have bought or received that month. 

img_2874

The final two pages are my read page and my pages read page. My read page is where I will write down all of the books that I read and their star rating for the month. The last page is pages read page is where I will mark down the number of pages I read each day.

Bookish Yearbook Superlatives

Hello lovelies! How are you? I missed you all. Today’s blog post is all about bookish yearbook superlatives. Yearbook superlatives are like “best dressed” “best couple” or “class clown”. I have a list of 8 common yearbook superlatives and I am going to be desiding on a book character for that superlative. Please leave me a comment down below letting me know what your bookish yearbook superlatives are. Hope you have a great day. 

Biggest Flirt (Daisy from the Great Gatsby)

9781847496140

Daisy is so flirtatious around Gatsby and leads him on. 

Best Musician (Mia from If I Stay)

IMG_2326

Mia loves the cello. She loves the instrument more the her friends and family. To me the cello is more then a passion, it’s a life line. 

Best Artist (Craig from It’s Kind of a Funny Story)

717Tx5+P+7L

Craig faces depression and anxiety. To cope with his mental illness he turns to drawing brain maps. He started drawing these brain maps in his childhood and it becomes an even greater influence on him during his time in a mental hospital. These drawings are Craig’s life line. 

Best Couple (Peter and Lara Jean from To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before)

IMG_2331

They just get each other. They are such opposites, but that’s what makes them a great couple. Peter was totally into Lara Jean , even before their contract. They are so comfortable with each other. They have great and deep conversations with each other and even when they fight they are still into each other. 

Class Clown (Kenji from the Shatter Me Series) 

IMG_2329

Kenji us absolutely the comic relief intros dystopian series. He has such witty comebacks. 

Most Likely to Become Prime Minister (Hermione from the Harry Potter series)

IMG_2330

She would keep everyone in line.  She is so smart, she would make very well rounded political decisions. 

Biggest Bookworm (Matilda from Matilda) 

IMG_2328

She is perhaps the most brilliant of all bookworms. She lives in a house where she is not treated very well by her parents and her brother. She finds her resilience in reading by escaping to far off places and different time periods. 

Most Likely to Change the World (Ed from I am the Messenger)

IMG_2327

Ed helps people who can’t help themselves. He doesn’t want want anything from them in return. He helps a rape victim, an elderly woman and a fifteen year old girl. Ed has changed the lives of these people and I am certain he will change the world with his kindness.
