Keep Calm & Read a Book

It’s as simple as that! What I’d give to have an extra hour in the day or a little longer lunch break at work to keep reading an enticing book. But, I think that makes reading so much more enjoyable, it is a special part of your day that you can look forward to and be in the moment, letting your imagination take over. The Incessant Bookworm is a place to share love of books – whether it’s reading, crafts, quotes, characters, reflections, you name it! The goal is to keep the art of books and writing alive by conversing with fellow bookworms.

Today is the day!!! After 2 decades since the first installment of the Harry Potter series was released, a public, Twitter-led forum for the cherished book series kicks-off – The Wizarding World Book Club! After seeing this announcement and signing up online, I realized I had never taken the official Pottermore Sorting Ceremony…… Lo and behold my official house:

Dream Reading Space

If you had unlimited resources, what kind of reading space would you create? Oh what a wonderful situation to find yourself in! Partnering with friends from ARHAUS, I had a blast creating my dream reading space. The possibilities are endless of course, however the pieces I chose are perfect for me and my reading habits. I imagine based on the descriptions and reviews that they are modern and still comfortable and homey for me and guests. Although it has been a few years since I studied Interior Design, I feel that any level of design we may have allows the pieces to be matched seamlessly, creating a personalized and beautiful space to tackle any to be read pile of books! Additionally, since I want to start my own literary-themed bed and breakfast, these pieces would be lovely additions to provide reading spaces for my guests 🙂

Snap Review: Juniper by Kelley and Thomas French

Title: Juniper: The Girl Who Was Born Too Soon

My rating: 5/5

Synopsis:

Juniper French was born four months early, at 23 weeks’ gestation. She weighed 1 pound, 4 ounces, and her twiggy body was the length of a Barbie doll. Her head was smaller than a tennis ball, her skin was nearly translucent, and through her chest you could see her flickering heart. Babies like Juniper, born at the edge of viability, trigger the question: Which is the greater act of love — to save her, or to let her go?
Kelley and Thomas French chose to fight for Juniper’s life, and this is their incredible tale. In one exquisite memoir, the authors explore the border between what is possible and what is right. They marvel at the science that conceived and sustained their daughter and the love that made the difference. They probe the bond between a mother and a baby, between a husband and a wife. They trace the journey of their family from its fragile beginning to the miraculous survival of their now thriving daughter.
