Boy Mom, Librarian, Former ELA/Reading Teacher, Young Adult & Children’s Book Expert, Slytherin, Romance Book Pusher,  Library, Literacy & Diverse Book Advocate, Lover of Mr. Darcy, All Things Jane Austen and Happily Ever Afters.

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 South Texas with my two sons and my very own Mr. Darcy.

I love to learn and I love school. I consider myself a professional student, so I try to attend school as much as I can. I have a BA in English, an MLS in Library Science, an MA in English Literature and I am currently pursuing a PhD in Children’s and Adolescent Literature. Books are literally my life. 

As a librarian, I have been able to do all kinds of fun things like serve on a few committees for the Texas Library Association such as 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).

I hope you enjoy reading with us!
