I’ve been doing it since I was a kid. It’s a dirty little secret and I must confess to all or the guilt will eat at my soul. BAH! Who am I kidding? What guilt? I’m proud to say that I’m a serial spoiler junky.
How does it end?
- I’ve always flipped to the last page of the book.
No shame in this folks. I want to know if there’s a happily ever after. If it doesn’t end on a good note, I seriously do not read the book.
No, nope, no way, nadda, not gonna do it. I absolutely detest cliffhangers in books, the only way you’re going to get me to read one is if all the books in the series have already been released. I can’t stand not knowing what happens.
I seriously want to know if a villain gets his/her comeuppance. If I’m deep into the story and a villain is introduced…*flip, flip flip* I can breathe a sigh of relief if he does. If he doesn’t, well I just have to say that I might be a little disappointed. In the case of a suspense story, I desperately want to know who it is.
Yep, I want to know how they get solved. ( You might be thinking at this point, “How the heck does she enjoy a book?” Well, I can’t really explain it, I just do. No judgement, this is a confession after all 🙂 ) Now, back to the mysteries part. I do actually attempt to solve it myself and then I go to the end to see if I’m right. Admit it, you probably do this to.
- Let’s face it, spoilers are very hard to avoid.
I’d say that as soon as a movie comes out, or a latest episode of your favorite show, one can’t avoid a spoiler. Especially about The Walking Dead. I mean it’s everywhere! Now, I don’t care if I know what happens or not. But I don’t like it when people say, “Well then don’t go on social media.” Really? Don’t be silly.
- Anxiety over an episode.
I watch The Walking Dead and I’m always filled with anxiety over the characters and what happens to them. I’m actually one season behind, so when spoilers over this season’s opening episode aired, I actually felt a lot better. I know, I’m weird. I can now watch the rest of the series with a peace of mind.
- Believe it or not, I don’t like movie spoilers.
Movies are a whole different ball game for me. I don’t like spoilers for movies that I’m dying to see. So, when I heard about what happened in the new Star Wars movie it kind of took the pleasure of the experience away.
- Movie Trailers.
Come on, they give away too much of the plot in one single trailer. At least a book has a general blurb, but does not say anything about the interesting things that might happen.
Things I will not do.
- I do not mention spoilers. Whether it is books, movies, or tv shows. I try not to give away key plot points in a book review.
- Tell someone to “Get over it.” when they say they don’t like spoilers.
- Mention any spoilers to my husband. Boy does he get mad! LOL
What do you think? Do you like spoilers?
