I am using the same book review presentation this year too because I love how they look. Louise Penny is a favorite - I have all of her books. They are a Canadian police procedural but great character building too. I've heard they aren't for everyone but I adore them.
Thanks so much Alexa! I used digital letter stamps to create the cover page (enlarged the letters to cover the entire 10 x 8.25 2-page spread.

Thank you! Sometimes I think a 4 x 6 page isn't really a page but I love it, especially because of the journal insert.

Thanks Alexa! So not my idea. In one of Ali Edwards' December Daily product play classes she shared the idea! I loved it and keep using it.

I haven't read Jayber Crow but I just recently put it on my holds list. I have read Hannah Coulter and a couple Charles Martin books and can see Winston Browne being in similar genre.

Thanks so much Alexa! I have tons of reading-related digital stamps and am always up for acquiring more!
Lis, thank you so much! I'm just not a fan of romance, these days. I have noticed so many love The Unhoneymooners, though. I went and read some reviews on The Broken Earth trilogy and it looks intriguing. I find I enjoy world-building fantasy, dystopian when I have had the occasion to read them.
Oh Stacie, yes! You must. My entire book club adored the book, even with the subject. So good!
Susan, how am I to send you a copy? Thanks, Susan
Lis, I agree about The Lovely War's potential for a great movie - oh, you have me thinking about that...16 books was definitely - unusual, but I loved every minute.
Bless you Linda! What lovely words.
Oh! Thank you so much Katie.
Thank you so much Stacie. My reading scrapbooks are some of my favorite. I'm not an audio reader but I heard Daisy Jones was fantastic on audio, although I enjoyed the style of writing so much.
Thanks Elena! I might check out the film adaptation of Rebecca, although it might be just to suspenseful for my tastes. I visit your blog regularly and enjoy it immensely.
Thanks Alexa for your encouragement. Always love hearing from you.

You're so kind Carrie! Thank you so much for commenting. I'm hoping to re-read some of my favorites this year and dig into my TBR pile that are on my list. I did just put about 12 books on hold at the library and I have already received 2/12. Super excited for my reading year.

Thank you Carrie! It was fun to put together and so revealing. I am looking forward to discussing who we are as readers at my book club.

Yes, it was wonderful gathering. It was only 9 of us so fairly small group. My mom has alot of health issues (as do I) so we've had to cancel quite a few visits over the year. Thank you so much for your thoughtful expressions of my pages, too!!!

Thank you so much Alexa for your kind thoughts. Warm version salad? Would love to hear what you come up with. There are a plethora of options on Pinterest!

Thanks so much! I think if I'd read Ballet Shoes as a child I would have appreciated it more.
Hey Christine, I am sticking with my 4 x 8 album for 2020 and don't have any plans to print those review pages. If you look in my categories you'll see other ways, in past years I have documented my reading: 100 Books in 2018 I made 6 x 8 pages and inserted them into my About Me album. In 2017 I created 12 x 12 monthly pages of what I read. 2019 was 4 x 8, also. In 2016 I documented the 52 books I read in a 4 x 4 album. In 2015, the first year I documented what I was reading I simply made a 2-page, 12 x 12 and added the book cover into squares with no reviews. Hope this helps some.
Thanks Alexa! I loved the design, too. Design is Cathy Zielske's specialty. Love her templates for the clean and simple.
