I read a lot of fantasy. I adored 'Anne of Green Gables'. But my favourite books as a child were probably Laura Ingalls Wilder's 'Little House' series, about a pioneer family in the mid-19th-century American west. I often thought of them as I was writing 'The Last Runaway'. -Tracy Chevalier

I took the longest showers of my life after every time I visited Gramacho. It affects the personality of the catadores.

My ultimate crush may be Judith McNaught – I met her once more than 20 years ago, and she was incredibly kind and encouraging to me. I adore that woman. But I also fangirl over aspiring or beginning authors, because every time I talk with them, I'm so energized and inspired. -Lisa Kleypas

Every woman adores a Fascist. -Sylvia Plath

I remember the first time my friend Colin Lewis, who used to be a judge with me on a show on MuchMusic called 'disBAND,' told me, 'I think I just found your next favorite artist to adore.'

Shakespeare is where I live. I adore him. -Kate O'Mara

I simply adore getting dressed up for a special occasion. I feel incredible stepping out in luxurious fabrics and a bit of bling. That's also how I feel about special-occasion dining rooms.

My father was my trainer, my teacher. He was closer to my sister in the sense that she adored him and he adored her. He was more like my pal. Because of the 13-year gap, I think by the time I came along, it wasn't a big deal. I wasn't spoilt or cherished, I was just put to work. -Felicity Kendal

My brother, whom I adored, typed out a children's book illustrated by himself… at the age of 14.

Everybody can adore you because you're on television, but at the end of the day, when you're no longer on TV, who's still there? It's family. -Roland Martin

I just adored 'Shaun Of The Dead.' That's a true mashup. That's a real Romero-era zombie movie and a real Gen X indie comedy. That was before zombie movies were cool, before 'Zombieland' and 'I Am Legend,' and now it has become a whole sub-genre. -Jon Favreau

When the Doors became huge, what nascent rock intelligentsia existed at the time adored them. -Steve Erickson

I have two young children, and they both adore books. Reading together at bedtime is one of our favorite nightly rituals.

The script that I fell in love with and adored was 'Jane the Virgin'… but every line in the pilot was essentially, 'Why did you keep my daughter a secret all of these years?'

All I know is Andrew Davies is an amazing writer; I adore the scripts. I think that Jeremy Piven is outstanding. -Katherine Kelly

There's nothing offensive about it, so there's no reason to be offended. -Kerry Washington

The phenomenon that is 'Game Of Thrones' has propelled many actors associated with it into the minds of directors and producers, and it's a fabulous position to be in. It's because it's so adored and respected, of such high quality with such amazing cinematography. -Rose Leslie

Even when I was a young kid, I always told my uncle that, when I became a wrestler, I wanted to be Rey Mysterio, Jr. and I wanted to wear the mask. I always pictured myself wearing a mask.

Something to keep in mind, whether you adore Obama or Trump: Drooling toadyism is not a good look on either side, and it paves the way for evil. Because while hate can drive people to do many things, love permits leaders to do all things – none of them good. -Greg Gutfeld

At the beginning, I thought, 'Oh, I can't criticize a singer who's doing a role that I adored… even a role I didn't do.' And then I thought, 'The heck with that! Thirty years of experience… ask the girl who did it!' And I feel that if they're not willing to take what I have to say, that's fine! But I'm going to say it. -Beverly Sills

I am a rereader. Quality is variety if you wait long enough. Barthes, Baudelaire, Benjamin, Celine, Duras, Faulkner, Fitzgerald, Melville: There is so much to revisit.

Whenever we do stuff with Die Antwoord, it's kind of like… I made a lot of music before this group that I'm kind of bored of and forgot about, and everything with Die Antwoord I really love.

I went to public and state schools – not at the same time. I did my art foundation course at Harrogate College of Arts. This brilliant tutor suggested I apply to Central Saint Martins. I adored it. -Giles Deacon

I personally adore the festival of Dussehra, as its a celebration of our culture and mythological legacy. I celebrate, almost, all my festivals with Life OK, be it Holi or Diwali or Dussehra. It's like a festive home for me. -Rithvik Dhanjani

As much as we adore what we do and we're eternally grateful, everyone needs a break sometimes. Everyone needs a few days just to breathe. -Ally Brooke

Selena is my angel. She is my biggest inspiration.

We all, as a community, celebrate her and adore her. We keep her memory alive. -Ally Brooke

The James Brown we saw tended to be the James Brown we chose to see: as the caped crusader of funk and soul, adored by millions, or as the face in a seemingly endless series of mug shots. The ways in which he appealed to and appalled different audiences made Brown a kind of national Rorschach test. -Jonathan Miles

'Transparent' was huge for me when I first saw it. I felt that, from an authorial point of view, no one was trying to sell characters to us, you know?

I adore cooking and baking and holiday feasts and dining with friends and spending too much money on mind-blowing meals in wonderful restaurants, but mostly, and quite simply, I love food. -Kim Brooks

When I was growing up, I thought there was only WWE. That's it. One promotion in the world. And then, as I grew up, I found that there's local wrestling. There's WCW, there's ECW. In Mexico, there are the luchadores. And then, finally, I realized there's wrestling in Japan. -Kenny Omega
