Wish List – Journals

I am stationery crazy. I can spend hours in a stationary shop browsing the shelves of notebooks and journals. My love for all things notebooks and pens is bordering on obsession. My bank balance never likes me after one of these visits. One thing I have always tried to maintain is a journal and there are some beautiful journals available.

We’ve had a look around the internet. Here are five of our favourite journals.


5 year journal

The Q&A A Day Journal is a five-year diary. With a section for each year, it’s easy to keep a small record of your thoughts and then look back at them as each year passes. Each page has a specific question (some of them unusual.) I have this journal and it’s fun to use. I love this. It’s available from Potter Style and it’s currently £10.34.



This book isn’t a standard journal but it’s a great addition to your collection if you’re a book addict like me. Available from Paperchase for £10.00, it’s great for recording the books you’ve read, the ones you would like to read along with favourite quotes, characters and ideas. We also really love the bookcase design.



This journal is absolutely beautiful. We are loving the colour. It’s the Laura Ashley Josette Purple A5 journal. It has ruled pages and with the padded cover and tie-ribbon clasp, it has a great ‘Bridget Jones’ feel to it. It’s available from WH Smith for £9.99.



We have fallen in love with this one a little bit. It’s the London Journal, available to buy for £13.50 from Not on The High Street. It has 96 pages (both blank and grided.) It’s inspired by London and it has beautiful illustrated pages. There is also a Paris design available too.



Finally, from In Blue/Etsy, there is this tie journal. I think this is one of my favourites actually. It’s a leather Journal Sketchbook. It’s refillable (which is always a bonus.) What’s great about this journal is that the front is customizable. I like the photo featured but there are other images and colours to choose from and you can pick what writing you’d like on the front (up to ten words.) It’s currently £15.30.

I’m Laura. I started Novel Kicks in 2009. I wanted a place to post my writing as well as give other writers like me the opportunity to do the same. There is also a monthly book club, a writing room which features writing prompts, book reviews, competitions, author interviews and guest posts.

I grew up by the sea (my favourite place in the world) and I currently live in Hampshire. I am married to Chris, have a cat named Buddy and I would love to be a writer. I’m trying to write the novel I’ve talked so much about writing if only I could stop pressing delete. I’ve loved writing since creative writing classes in primary school. I have always wanted to see my teacher Miss Sayers again and thank her for the encouragement. When not trying to write the novel or writing snippets of stories on anything I can get my hands on, I love reading, dancing like a loon and singing to myself very badly. My current obsession is Once Upon a Time and I would be happy to live with magic in the enchanted forest surrounded by all those wonderful stories provided that world also included Harry Potter. I love reading chick lit. contemporary fiction and novels with mystery.
