5. The Importance of Being Earnest
Gwendolen: My ideal has always been to love someone of the name of Ernest… The moment Algernon first mentioned to me that he had a friend called Ernest, I knew I was destined to love you.
What would you do now, knowing that the girl you just proposed to loves you primarily due to your name and your name is actually Jack not Ernest?
Amusing scenes follow where everyone is either claiming to be Ernest or claiming to love Ernest when in fact Ernest does not even exist!
Hilarious play by Oscar Wilde which is wonderfully written and very enjoyable to read.

100. Breakfast at Tiffany’s
New York. 1940’s. This is the delicious story of young Holiday Golightly, a quirky but glamourous socialite, and her adventures about town from the viewpoint of her neighbour who is only known as ‘Fred’.
Having been a massive fan of the 1961 film starring Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard, I was very excited to read this book! Despite the differences between the film and novel, including a far more heart wrenching ending to the novel, I loved reading the book. The quirky character of Holly draws you into the delightful yet troubled world she inhabits.
“would you reach in the drawer there and give me my purse. A girl doesn’t read this sort of thing without her lipstick” -Holly Golightly
