13 of Professor Snape’s Best Moments in Harry Potter

Alan Rickman was one of the most beloved characters that was written in the Harry Potter books as professor Snape. While some loved to hate him, you couldn’t because of how much his character did care about Harry. His character was one that I believe was the best written. Most of the time you think of him as the man who is conspiring with Voldemort, but in reality he isn’t, and you see the pain of his character and everything that he goes through.

  1. Ahh yes, this is what I think is the most iconic moment in the whole movie franchise. I mean when you think of Professor Snape, who doesn’t think “turn to page 394….”

2. When Snape get’s personal with Harry and tells him that he has his mothers eyes. This part always got me because you can see the pain in his eyes, and all the suffering that he really went through. I think that this was the moment that I knew Snape really was the good guy.

3. When Snape would have Harry and Ron in class, and all the times that he would end up slapping them on the back of the head. I swear it happened every class!

4. When Snape was talking with Dumbledore and we find out that Snape’s patronus is a doe like Lily Potter’s was. And we see how in love he was with Lily. “After all the time? Always.”

5. When Snape helped save Ron, Harry, and Hermonie from Lupin when he was a wolf. We know that Snape pretty much hated them together, but when this happened it was kind of an eye opener because even though he didn’t like them, he put himself in danger to save them.

6. Harry trying to fight Snape after he killed Dumbledore. Even though Harry watched him kill Dumbledore, Snape didn’t try to fight back though Harry had been trying to use Snape’s own spells against him.

7. When Snape helps Harry out in this first year. When Harry is playing Quittich it’s obvious that somethings been happening and someone is trying to sabbose Harry. While everyone thinks that it’s Snape because he’s the bad guy, he was actually really just trying to help Harry out.

8. Everything he does is out of his love for Lily. No matter what Snape is doing, it’s always out of his love for Lily. And even if that means helping out Harry, he doesn’t care because he would want to make her happy.

9 . You never know what to expect with him. You never know what you can expect when it comes to Snape. When you would read or watch him on the screen, you never knew what side of Snape you would get.

10. He didn’t care that Harry was famous. He kind of kept Harry grounded when it came to him being famous for his scar. No matter who ‘famous’ Harry was, he didn’t buy into it. And he made sure that he pretty much kept Potter grounded.

11.He was very loyal. No matter what anyone says, Snape was always loyal to Hogwarts, and he would put himself into danger if need be to make sure that it would stay safe.

12. His ‘look’. Snape just had that look that he would give, and you could tell that from that one look, he didn’t give a s**t. It was hilarious just to watch!

13. And lastly he went from I believe being the most hated, to being the most loved. After seeing the journey that Snape’s characters took, you really hated him in the beginning for all the things that he did, but by the end you understood him. And you could understand why he did the things that he did.

Throne of Glass Review

“You could rattle the stars,” she whispered. “You could do anything, if only you dared. And deep down, you know it, too. That’s what scares you most.”

I think that one of the main reasons why I picked this book up in the first place was because I loved the cover of the book. I mean it’s so badass, how can you not pick it up? I mean along with all the other people who read it and said that it was amazing, so that was another reason why I knew that I had to check this book out. I knew from reading the first couple of pages that it would be amazing.

It was a very action packed novel, so if you like those kinds of novels, then this will be perfect for you. I personally love them, so that is why I believe that I liked this book so much. But I think that another reason was the characters. I loved the characters that she had in the book.

Celaena Sardothien- she is the main character in this whole book, and I have to say that she was pretty badass and that I wish that I could be like her. I mean I loved the fact that she wasn’t some girl in distress and that she can really take care of herself, she didn’t need a man. Hell, she could of probably killed all the men in the book. She is also an assassin, and she’s been brought by the king’s son to compete to be the kings assassin.

Dorian Havilliard- He is the crowned prince of Adarlan. At first he seems like this cocky prince who knows that he has everything and that he can take anything he wants. But as he starts to fall for Celaena you can tell that under the cold exterior he tries to have, there really is a nice person who cares about people, especially Celaena. He cares about her well being and also being with her. And I’m a huge sucker for romance.

Chaos Westfall- He is the captain of the king’s guard, and he’s pretty rude from the start. He hates Celaena from the start, but for a good reason. She is a very dangerous person and he wants to make sure that she doesn’t get loose and then start to kill people. I don’t blame him, but the more time that he spends with Celaena the more he starts to realize that he really does like her, even though he knows that he shouldn’t.

“We all bear scars,… Mine just happen to be more visible than most.” 

So, for those of you who haven’t read the book here is some quick back story about it. It’s all about a girl named Celaena who is the world’s more notorious assassin and she’s been chosen by Dorian (the crowned prince of Adarlan) to come and compete to be the king’s assassin. Well, if she competes then she’s promised that she will get her freedom after serving the king for 4 years, which isn’t a bad deal and why she decided that she will take it. I mean she’s been living in a death camp for a year and she knows that if she stays there, she will die. After she says yes, she’s brought to the castle to fight the other people who were picked by their mentors, and she must compete against them in a bunch of different tests. All these tests have different things to do, some are wall climbing, potions, and even horseback riding. There is also a good love story in the book as well. Well, a blooming romance in the novel!

This is seriously a great fantasy book that you will love. You will be transported into Celaena’s world. You will be terrified and excited all throughout the book. There are so many twists and turns in the book that you never know what is actually going to happen.

So, overall I would have to give this book 4.5 stars. It was just so amazing that I loved reading it and I actually can’t wait to read the next book that I have coming in the mail as we speak!
