The reader.

“But at the best of times she feels like a character in a Muriel Spark novel – independent, bookish, sharp-minded, secretly romantic.”  (David Nicholls)

My name is Cilla. 
I'm Indonesian, but I've spent a couple of years living in Melbourne. 
I'm a dog person, a Pisces, an introvert, and a writer. 
I love quotes; song lyrics sometimes matter more to me than the melody. 
I read anything that catches my interest; the only thing I won't read is Horror (too much of a scaredy cat for that unfortunately!)

The blog.

"A book lying idle on a shelf is wasted ammunition." (Henry Miller)

I grew up in a family of readers. My parents read to me long before I could do it for myself. We all love to buy books, even though often-packed schedules have resulted in there being piles of unread books in our house. I've recently moved back home and felt a little overwhelmed by just how many there are. 

So I set a goal for 2015, that I would read as many of those books as possible. Apart from the practical, it's also about discovering more common grounds between me and my parents - which isn't always easy!

This blog for me is about keeping myself on track to that goal and meeting other booklovers. I may be a little awkward, but I love a good discussion about books, so do say hi! :)
