  1. I didn’t even know the actor that plays Snape is dead until I saw the article about Rickman’s diaries! I’m only up to HP Book and Movie #5 so haven’t really looked to see what actors play what characters or where they are now etc. Kinda like I had no clue James Gandolfini was dead the entire time I was watching The Sopranos for the first time a couple years ago. But yah, Rickman’s diaries are a MUST HAVE. Too bad they’ve been edited down to one book. Can’t we have volumes of them? LOL

    Great list of books you have here. I still need to do my NonFicNov wrap up post but now I’m in the midst of #thankfulllyreading so not sure when to fit that in. LOL


  2. I saw the Bourdain book somewhere else today. I’ve never read any of his books even though I enjoyed the episodes that I saw of his shows. I need to fix that.

    You’ve also reminded me that I want to read The Little Book of Hygge. My aunt recommended it a few years ago. Hygge is a concept that she’s fully adopted.


  3. So many books here I want to add to my TBR. Either the book about owls or the one about geese would be a good start. And Alan Rickman’s diaries sound very interesting.
