Last year was the first year I tried to do a book journal and... things got messy. I really went into it blind with no real idea of how to organize it- I just knew I wanted something away from Goodreads. It wasn't a complete disaster but it was so disorganized and scattered that it didn't do me a whole lot of good in the end.
This year I decided to be a) more organized and b) more consistent with how I use it. Instead of having release dates, TBRs, books I've read, books I want to buy, etc., scattered out across multiple journals or my phone, I've put everything I need to know about the book world into one handy journal. And so far it looks like it's going to work out great for me!
Just for fun, I thought I'd give y'all a look at how this year's journal is shaping up!
The pages after are where I'll keep a list of books I've read for the month, any thoughts on those books, and notes for reviews.
Each month will have a similar first page.
And that's it! I'm hoping this year's journal is a little more helpful and a little less chaotic than last year's!
