Gilda Joyce, Psychic Investigator, by Jennifer Allison, has been on my TBR list for a while now. I finally started reading it a few days ago, and was really glad I did. I loved this book! Gilda is such a fun, quirky character.

I also recently stumbled on Austin Kleon’s blog and started reading about visual note-taking, which lead me to look at sketchnoting. It looked like a lot of fun, so I thought I’d give it a try by doing a visual review.

One caveat: I was already near the end of Gilda Joyce, Psychic Investigator when I started doodling this. So a lot of my notes are from the end of the book.

It was an interesting experiment, and I’ll probably do it again with the next book I read. I certainly had a lot of fun! My favorite part was capturing quotes that I liked, something I’ve never done before while reading. Interestingly, it didn’t disrupt the flow of my reading.
