Making My Own Review Notebook

Hello guys! How are you all doing? I want to apologize for not posting on here as much as I wanted to. It's has been a stressful couple of weeks. Here in Belgium we're told to stay at home so I will have more time to read and write reviews!


A couple of months ago I saw a picture on bookstagram. I can't remember who posted this on their story (so I can't give credits, sorry!) but I really liked the idea of have a little notebook in which I can write some things I liked and didn't like about a book.




I tried finding this online to buy it, but to no success. I couldn't find anything that even looks like this, so why not make one myself? I think it's a fun idea and I have plenty of time on my hands right now.









This is how my notebook looks. It's a cute pink and blue book.

















I am starting off with a drawing on the first page. I drew a little book and wrote 'book reviews'.















Next I added some flowers in different colors. (I am honestly surprised. This turned out really pretty)












Next step is to write on the pages. I will follow the example you see above, but I am going to add more details. I want to include the option 'cover' as well as 'things I liked' and 'things I didn't like'.


The page will look like:


TITLE:

STARS: /5

AUTHOR:

POSTED: Y/N

STARTED:

FINISHED:

NUMBER OF PAGES:

FORMAT: PRINT - E-BOOK - AUDIO

COVER: /5

RECOMMEND: Y/N

THOUGHTS:

THINGS I LIKED:

THINGS I DIDN'T LIKE


The reason I wanted something like this, is because it's really helpful in my opinion. I normally take some notes on my phone, but that's quite difficult especially when I am reading an ebook on my phone. It's also fun to see which books I reviewed and what my thoughts were.


Here is the final result! (Yes I realize I wrote 'title' as 'titel'. That's because in Dutch we write it as titel!)


I hope you like the results and be sure to try it at home!


Stay safe, take care of yourself and your family in these difficult times. Sending a lot of love.
