Welcome!  Thanks for stopping by!

I'm Melissa - reader, writer, list maker, Beatles lover, chocolate and Thai food eater (not together), and keeper of Bookmark Dragon. I currently live in Southern Utah with my husband and our two kids.

Bookmark Dragon is where I unleash all my inner bookish, nerdy glory. I post (mostly YA) book reviews, book news, writing inspiration, literary top ten lists, and thoughts on book-to-film shenanigans.

We'll mostly talk about books around here, but in case you want to know a little more... I like card games, MarioKart, black nail polish, interior design, Shakespeare, the corner pieces of the brownie pan, I got my bachelors and MA in literature (I really like this stuff) and have never lost a limbo contest. I think that about covers it.

Questions? Comments? Concerns? Jokes? Please send all to bookmarkdragonemail@gmail.com. I'd love to hear from you!

Thanks for reading!

    1. Thanks, Marlene! I'm happy to be here. I'm looking forward to bookish chats as well! :)

  2. I love corner pieces too!!

    1. While you and Kami eat the corner pieces, I'll gladly have the middle/no edge pieces. :D

    2. I'll send you all my middle pieces if you send me all your edge pieces. :)
