Illustrated “Books Read” Tracker
My goal this year is to read at least 80 books! 📚 Of course I have to note them in my bullet journal. 😉 My favourite genres are fantasy, sci-fi, dystopian and YA. By the way, you can find me at GoodReads as Christina Reads. Which is your favourite book??? 😘📘 #books #genres #booklist #booksivereadin2016 #bulletjournal #bujo #bulletjournaljunkies #bulletjournalcommunity #leuchtturm1917 #pelikancolouredpencils #drawing
