About Me

My name is Lucy and I’m a blogger, writer and lover of all things literary. Social Media Manager by day, bookworm by night I’m currently reading my way through the BBC Top 100 Reads – a challenge I hope to have completed by February 2016.

It was shortly after graduation from a degree in English Literature that I happened upon Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier while perusing the shelves of my local library. I began this challenge in January 2012 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 on lucy(at)lucypearson.org
