As you can tell I am a huge fan of Oscar Wilde and J.K. Rowling... Ha! 
I just love Wilde's comedic tone in all of his work, he's fabulous- if you are yet to read any of his plays definitely get onto it now. Of course, I will always be partial to J.K. Rowling as it was the Harry Potter series that first made me fall in love with books and literature.

What are some of your favourite quotes? 

I think you can tell a lot about a persons character based on their own personal favourites.
