Don’t you hate it when..

Someone spoils a book or film for you by telling you the ending or a major spoiler?

I did a blog post earlier on the fact that I was ordering Me before you by JoJo Moyes as I saw the film trailer and decided the book was a must read. Well I was discussing at work my new book purchase and how I was looking forward to reading it and how from what i gathered from the trailer I thought it would make me cry. The person I was talking to then proceed to tell me how she had heard about the book, thought about buying it but decided to check the story out on wikipedia instead and then told me the entire ending. THE ENTIRE ENDING AND TWIST! I was like what!!

My face was literally like:

On the plus side the book arrived and I love the cover. My copy just arrived from book depository. There were other covers but I liked this one the best. (Ignore the copy of Lean in 15! I thought i’d give the recipes a go as it was on offer)

On the downside I now have the book but I know the entire story essentially and so don’t want to pick the book up yet.

I mean really why must people give spoilers? Has this ever happened to you?

Why oh why? Spoilers and a series I have no intention of finishing part 1

There have been many incidents when I have been nosing about on the internet and come across a spoiler which ruins a series for me. I will be doing multiple posts on a series i have no intention of finishing, hence the title aptly named part 1. I like to read reviews before I pick up a book and so appreciate it when other warn the readers that their review or post contains a spoiler. Sometimes I’m not even reading a review, I will stumble across a picture which again ruins a book for me. When I was waiting for book Mockingjay to come out, I did not go on any social media site until I had read the book (luckily i got it the day it came out and finished it 2 days later).

How do you avoid spoilers? Are you still happy to read a book even though you have come across a spoiler?

Vampire Acamedy, Frostbite, Shadow Kiss, Blood Promise.

Do not get me wrong I love the Vampire Academy but I will not be finishing the Vampire Academy series. I stumbled across a spoiler on Goodreads *sigh* but I found out something happens in Last Sacrifice involving Dimitri, Adrian and Rose which I cannot bring myself to read, as I know I will end up hating the book. I do not want this to happen as I loved the series up till now and it was one of the best series I’ve read so far.  Maybe one day I will force myself to read Last Sacrifice as I want to know what happens in the end, but this is not going to happen any time soon. This is just my opinion, I know there are many people who disagree with this but it is just a series I cannot finish.

Why oh why spoilers? Happy Reaading! Hope it’s spoiler free 😀
