My name is Lucy Pearson and I’m a 25 year old lover of all things literature living and working in London. Beauty PR by day, bookworm by night I set myself the challenge of working my way through the Top 100 BBC Reads by the eve of my 26th birthday. And with said event just weeks away and just 39 of the 100 books ticked off my list I’ve allowed myself a leeway of a year (or two) in order to complete my challenge.
And so here I am, slightly hungover, on New Year’s Day 2012, and I’m setting myself twelve months’ of book related challenges; from writing reviews to tackling books I’ve previously struggled with, The Unlikely Bookworm Blog will follow the highs and the lows of my reading marathon with rants and muses along the way. As well as selecting books from the Top 100 BBC Reads you will also find me with books recommended by friends, family and colleagues, anything written by Daphne Du Maurier or set in France or a well thumbed book with a mysterious looking front cover.
I am frequently found in the fiction section of Waterstones, rifling through shelves in dusty second-hand bookshops or in the corner of a coffee shop with my nose in a book.
I would love to hear from fellow bookworms and you can contact me here.
