The Sorting Hat is back in Pottermore and I was sorted into Slytherin! 🙂
Today my husband woke me up with the news that Alan Rickman (one of my favorites actors) died at the age of 69, to say I was surprised and in complete shock is an understatement.
The first time I watched Alan Rickman’s acting was in “Sense & Sensibility” (the adaptation from Jane Austen’s book, with Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet), where he plays the role of Colonel Brandon, and immediately I became his fan.
Below is one of my favorite scenes from the movie (Colonel Christopher Brandon reading to Marianne Dashwood):
Besides his role in “Sense & Sensibility”, watching him like Severus Snape in “Harry Potter”, as Harry in “Love Actually”, as Hans Gruber in “Die Hard” and some others, shows his versatility as an actor and one of the reasons why he is admired by many.
Below are some of the most important scenes from his role as Severus Snape in the “Harry Potter” Movies.
His death is a great loss and he’ll be sorely missed.

I know I haven’t been updating much and I’m sorry for that, but I’m here now and I’ll try to update more frequently.
During this year my focus has been on my favorite activity: Reading (there’s still many books in my TBR list, I need to update the list that is currently on this Blog and start some kind of reading schedule for 2016).
One of the things I found during the last year was a lot of Harry Potter’s Fanfiction and I’ve been spending a lot of time reading it (specially the one focused on Time Travel and the Marauders Era), some of my favorite Fanfiction writers are Shayalonnie and Colubrina (the last has a story called The Green Girl that I’ve read several times).
Another thing I’ve been doing this year besides reading, going to the library, deal with the day to day activities at home, travel to Portland (in a later post I’ll share some pictures from that trip) and travel to Cancun, was to increase the size of our iTunes, Amazon Video, Google and Ultraviolet Movies libraries and, as a result, my husband and I spend hours at night and during the weekends watching movies.
I love watching Movies based on Books, so I want to share with you the trailer of one of the Movies that I’m anxiously waiting for and that will be released next year: Fantastic Beasts and where to find them, based on J.K. Rowling‘s book.
I’m not sure if I’ll have the chance to post again before Christmas, so I would like to take the chance to wish all a really Happy Holiday!
