Mother, Librarian, Former ELA/Reading Teacher, Young Adult & Children’s Book Expert,  Romance Book Pusher,  Library, Literacy & Diverse Book Advocate, Lover of Mr. Darcy & All Things Jane Austen.

I have been reviewing books on different blogs since 2012. I finally decided I needed my own space to keep everything together.  This is how Margie’s Must Reads was born.

I live in Texas with my two sons and my very own Mr. Darcy.

I really liked college, I spent a lot of time there and racked up a few degrees:  BA in English, an MLS in Library Science and an MA in English Literature.

As a librarian, I have had the privilege to serve on  the Texas Library Association Spirit of Texas Reading Program- High School (SPOT-HIGH)  TLA TAYSHAS Reading Committee and TLA Tejas Star Reading Committee and the Texas Library Association Texas Book Festival Committee . I am the Founder of Border Book Bash: Celebrating Teens and Tweens of the RGV. I’m an Authorized Reviewer for School Library Journal and as a Jane Austen Fanatic, I am naturally a member of JASNA (Jane Austen Society of North America).
