Hello Hello! How are you all?

Happy Sunday and Happy Valentine’s Day! I don’t have a romantic post for you today, but, I am back with a really quick post where I’ll show you the spreads in my bookish bullet journal for January!

January was a great reading month for me and I decided to go for a bit of a different set-up for the books read, ratings and favourite quotes of the month. I really like how these pages turned out, so keep on reading to see them all!

My January spreads

I always start out my monthly spreads with a little calendar for the month where I can write the posts I plan to write or maybe some bookish events that I know are coming up for that month! I have so many calendars and notes, but I need this one here too, just so I can keep on track! 😉 And although I don’t really like how the quote page turned out because I am awful at drawing anything, I do think that the quote was so cute, and I love me a bookish quote!

I changed up with TBR page as well and I still don’t think I’m 100% a fan of this double-spread, but it will have to do for now. As you can see, I kind of failed some of my TBR and January as there are lots of red arrows, oops. I was able to get through quite a few books though, and I enjoyed them all! I also took advantage of my pretty banners for my TBR Game and stuck the ones in that I picked for last month’s reading.

I think this might be my favourite page so far because I absolutely love how that pretty right-side page turned out. I actually messed up what I had planned and I had to improvise, so I added loads of paper and I think it turned out really nice, so much so, that I’m going to keep this kind of presentation page going for each month!

You know I love a tracker, and I had these monthly “pages read” spreads in my previous bullet journal and really liked the way they looked. This is a really easy way for me to see how much I read each day (if I can) and how many pages I read in the whole month. However, my maths was a bit funky because there was a difference of 134 pages between this page and my wrap-up page, ahah!

This is where I changed things up because starting this year, as soon as I finish a book, I write down in my bullet journal what book it is, add a picture of the cover and put my ASPECTS rating and favourite quote on the page. I didn’t have a very good way of doing this in my previous bullet journal, but I thought that Fiona’s bullet journal set up was marvellous and I took inspiration from her pages I’ve been in her photos – so thank you, Fiona!!

In these three pictures, you can see what books I read in January, what ratings I gave them and my favourite quote from each (apart from one because I was having so much fun reading it that I didn’t remember to note down quotes)!

On the last page of this picture, I mashed up a little wrap-up part and I did mess up the bottom a little bit and I’m not sure I like it, but it will do for now, until I figure out a better way to set this up!


Well, that was a short post but one that I enjoyed writing. I love my bullet journal and it is such a relaxing activity. I have a lot of pain in my day-to-day life because of my various conditions, as well as being very busy and getting frustrated over my health and amount of work I have, but my bullet journal is my little slice of happiness, so it’s a very happy activity for me.

That’s all for now, I hope you enjoyed reading this post and although I am nowhere near as good as some amazing bullet journalers, I hope that my spreads will help you or give you inspiration if you are just starting out!

See you soon, stay safe,

Ellie xx

  1. Wow! These pages are so awesome. I always wish I could bullet journal, but I’m just not organized (or creative) enough, so I’ll just have to keep admiring journals like yours!
