Hello everyone! Today I thought I’d share my October reading/blogging journal spread with you. I am pretty proud of how it came out, and I think it’s just super cute. It’s not as intricate as some of my spreads in the past, but I’ve been trying to go for a more minimalist approach.
First up is the “cover” page for October. It just has two little pumpkins and my attempt at some pretty script lettering. Handwriting is not my strong point, so I’m slowly working on it by trying new things.
Then we’ve got my monthly layout! I use this page for planning out what blog posts are going up when, so those are all blurred out (no peeking). I’ve also got a little square on the side for tracking my goals for the month. These are usually color-coded depending on what category they fit into- for example, blogging, school, fitness, etc.
Finally, I have a wrap-up page. This is how I keep track of what books I’ve read during the month. It’s obviously blank right now (we’re only 3 days into the month), so there’s not much to see on it. Usually, I just include my star rating and a couple of words about the book and my thoughts!
I think this month I’m also going to print out pictures of the covers and glue those on!
My reading journal doesn’t have that much going on in it for this month, as I’ve been using my school planner a lot more frequently. But, I hope you still enjoyed this post and maybe got some inspiration from it!
Do you use a reading journal?
