I was really happy when this journal arrived in the post. Over the past two years I've been keeping track of the books I've read by jotting down the title and author in a little notebook, but with this journal there's room for more.

In section 1, as you can see from the image above, you can record the following about the book you've just finished reading:
  • Date started
  • Date finished 
  • Star rating
  • Book title
  • Author
  • Plot notes
  • Character notes
  • Favourite quotes
  • Other books to read by this author

Cool, right? I absolutely love the layout, and am looking forward to getting started.

There are four different sections, each of which is introduced with a colourful illustration by Andre Letria:
  • Section 1: Book notes
  • Section 2: Books to check out
  • Section 3: Notes, ideas, and observations
  • Section 4: Reading inspiration 
In section 2 you can jot down books you're interested in reading/books on your tbr.

There's space to write down the book title, author, and notes.

Section 3: "Notes, ideas, and observations" is pretty self explanatory. You can basically jot down whatever you like! 😀

Section 4: If you're not sure what to read next this section is super helpful with recommendations of books that have won literary awards. There's even a couple of pages at the end that let you record your own prize winners!

And last but not least it also came with a box of 20 notecards (5 colourful designs, 4 of each) & envelopes!

As you can tell I'm eager to start using this cute little journal. Tell me, what do you guys think of it? 📚
