Monthly TBR

October Bullet Journal!! + Month-Long-Read-a-thon + Inktober Starting!!

i dont even know why im doing this, maybe this is like some deep form of self-betrayal.  probably.

anyways, ive been jumping on the bandwagon of bullet journaling since like,,,,,,june of 2018 and yeah, no chance youre gonna see that (the first one is always horrendous)

BUT I’VE KIND OF GOT THE HANG OF WHICH SPREADS I LIKE and which spreads dont work with me and which spreads make me excited to bullet journal, so we’re progressing

it always takes forever but that totally works in my favour bc i get to audiobook while i plan and sketch and draw 💁

excuse my lousy attempt at being aesthetic and my photography skills bc theyre really lacking, i know

~ i get the majority of my spread ideas from different artists on pinterest and some are just like a hybrid of two really cute spreads ~

Bujo #1

the cover is pretty straight forward, just like, october but with flowers (the cursive takes FOREVER to get right, but hey not bad right?)

Bujo #2

(omg you can literally see the black bleeding over from the cover page 🤦‍♀️)
i LOVE these pastel colours, really simple, really clear, i dont know what else to say

Bujo #3

the next spread i have is my bookshelf. i literally love drawing this page. the plan is pretty simple, for everybook i finish, i write the title on one of the “books” and colour it in

yeah, im going all out on the ambitious scale, 20 books here we go 🙃🙃

Bujo #4

i broke this page between new releases (which i never get to but serve a good reminder) and to catalogue the movies and shows i watch.
spoiler alert: this is probably gonna be empty bc i have no watching attention span (literally ask my friends, i watch videos on 1.5 speed)

Bujo #5

pretty straight forward, on this page i just write the books i read with their ratings and which format i read them in (physical, e-book, or audio)

Bujo #6

anyone else loling with me. honestly i just workout to feel less guilty about my terrible eating habits. works great on my conscience

feel free to copy any of the spreads (and SHARE THEM IF YOU DO, ID LOVE TO SEE!)

if anyone cares about which supplies i use, everything is really low budget like we’re not fancy people in this house (the tombow pen literally was just for the aesthetics, i still havent mastered it yet)

  • for outlines, I mainly use the Sharpie Marker Pen, Fine Tip
  • the colour pens are a set i bought like 2 years ago, any fine tip colour set would do
  • the colours are literally just the Crayola Super Tip Markers (i told you i was low budget didnt i?)
  • and a whole lot of bic pens

that’s literally it. if i can do it, anyone can.

!!I have other news to share!!

my babes, amy, jia, and marami planned a spontaneous month long readathon on the only day i didnt have wifi, much betrayal with a bunch of lovely readers

its super chill and super fun. just read whatever you like at your own pace, its just supposed to be a really relaxing readathon where we talk about the books we read and share our thoughts while having fun together.

if you CARE to join, we keep track and update each other on our goodreads group, you can find HERE

AND FINALLY the month of october brings us,,,,,

Image result for inktober

Inktober is a month where you draw ONLY IN INK for 31 days and basically improves your drawing skills and its fantastic. i’m going to to be participating (like last year) and idk if im going to be able to do EVERYDAY like last year but im going to TRY MY VERY BEST AND IF YOU ARE TOO, LET ME KNOW SO WE CAN MOTIVATE EACH OTHER AND KEEP EACH OTHER ON TRACK

and hopefully ill be posting my highlights here (ughhhhghghghghhg)

but anyways, no TBR this month bc i have too many things to do and i dont need a structured tbr (im legit reading 8 books right now and i cant breathe anYMORE)

i hope you all have an amazing day/week/month/year. happy reading friends,

mayy
