This is a personal blog written and edited by me, Marie Jaskulka. (I am a real person, not AI.) For questions about this blog, email me at hi@mariejaskulka.com.

I love reviewing books and products. If you want a book or product reviewed, email me for my review policy and we can go from there.

I also write about books and products I obtain on my own. If I receive a product to review, I will let you know. I won’t promote stuff I don’t think is good for people. I’m not trying to be part of The Problem.

The content on this site is a love letter to the people who enjoy reading it. I would never post ideas or recommendations I don’t believe in order to earn money, aka “sell out,” as this goes against the Gen X code of ethics established by Pearl Jam in 1990.

There are links all over this site, and I try to remember to make them affiliate links. This means if you end up buying something after clicking the link, I earn a tiny bit of money.

I am not a psychologist, psychiatrist, doctor, dentist, lawyer, nutritionist, or accountant. Everything I post is just one lady’s opinions about the world.

I’m privileged and try to be aware of it. If I ever say anything offensive or hurtful, first off, I apologize. Second, I genuinely welcome your feedback. I’m open to learning about others’ experiences and perspectives. I am a work in eternal progress.

I am trying to make a living from my art, so I will have some ads on the page. Please do not judge me for the content of the ads. They are based on your search history, so like Dave Matthews says, Look in the mirror, my friend.

what people are saying about The Lost Marble Notebook

Eloquent, lyrical, combustible, Marie Jaskulka’s debut verse novel will draw you into the world of two teens whose thoughts and words resonate with raw beauty, love, and obsession. Jaskulka reminds us that, deep down, we know when love is real, and when we find it—we find our power.
Bridget Birdsall, author of Double Exposure

The Lost Marble Notebook of Forgotten Girl & Random Boy is one of those books I wish I could travel back in time to give to fifteen-year-old me. It’s a lyrical, raw, and honest account of love, losing yourself, and finding your voice, and with it, your inner strength.
Stephanie Kuehnert, author of I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone

★ “Told with such complete believability that the descent seems almost foregone, given the wounds that each has brought to the relationship. Jaskulka’s narrative explores the hows and whys of an abusive teenage relationship with heartbreaking honesty, and her delicate touch renders the dark story even more powerful. Graceful. Searing. Haunting.
