Marni Jarman | Word to Dreams

About Reviewer:
I am in my early 40s; a child of the big hair, Duran Duran, Breakfast Club 80's. I could never pull off the big hair though, mine's just too fine and ever so straight. Ugh!

I love to read. I have since I was a wee child. Hated, and I mean hated Billy Goats Gruff. My parents had to bribe me into reading it in 1st grade. My teacher thought I may have had a reading problem, my parents knew that couldn't be the issue, and boy was my dad surprised when I told him what an awful story it was and I wasn't wasting my time on that when I could be reading a perfectly good Nancy Drew mystery. Not sure how they got me to read it for school, but it's still stuck in my memory.


What I Read: Young Adult category only: Paranormal Romance, Scifi, and Dystopi
