“I find it hard to name the one book that was so damn delightful it changed my life. The truth is, they have all changed my life, every single one of them ̶ even the ones I hated. Books are my version of “experiences”. I’m made of them.” – Zadie Smith (O, the Oprah Magazine, July 2014)
Written by Cecile
Cécile Sune was born in Lyon, France, and her obsession with books started when she was 14. Her grandparents had lent her Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell, and she spent part of the summer indoors reading. Needless to say, her tan didn't really improve that year! It was also around that time that Cécile fell in love with the English language. Several years later, in 1999, Cécile moved to Toronto, Canada, with her cat and 5 suitcases. Her love of reading greatly increased when she discovered that English books were much cheaper than French novels. In 2013, she decided to start a blog to share her passion. Cécile now lives in Ottawa, Canada, with her husband and their daughter, and works as a freelance translator (CS Revision).
