The amount of books I’ve been spoiled for is criminal, but with social media it’s almost impossible to not be spoiled by books nowadays, however, all spoilers aren’t bad. There were some books that I was extremely appreciative of the spoiler posse and this post is that list.
*Disclaimer: I’m sure you’ve all deduced that this review will be full of spoilers, but just to be safe – This post will contain SPOILERS!!
This was an accidental spoil. I had just come down from the high of Divergent when I began reading Insurgent. Now, where Divergent was fun and exciting, Insurgent was excruciatingly slow and dull. It took me four months to finish Insurgent and that’s when I happened upon a non-disclosed spoiler review that basically said, “Tris died. What the fuck was the point?!” Reading that review was THE best thing I did that day – that and not reading book three of course. I was reluctant to read Allegiant anyway, so once I became privy to this info I was refreshed and exact that I hadn’t wasted my time. This didn’t stop me from reading a quick summary of book three, though, and it was so bad I cackled.
Bunny Drop volumes was a semi-accidental, semi-purposeful spoil. Bunny Drop vol. 1 was my first venture into Japanese Manga, however, it won’t be my last. Bunny Drop vol. 1 was wonderful and really different from anything I’d read this year. After enjoying volume one, I went on a warpath for volume two and was, again, pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. So, I went and checked out how many volumes we’d get with this series, which is when I happened upon the dramatic decrease in stars. Volume one had a 4.07 avg rating and volume nine had a 3.10 avg rating. Being the inquisitive person I am, it was only natural for me to read the reviews – right? Some of the reviews were spoiler-free, while others were not. I chose to read the spoiler-filled reviews (don’t judge me), which is how I found out the ending of the Bunny Drop volumes. Apparently, Yumi Unita got the notion that a grown man adopting a 6 year old girl and raising her like a daughter can then become romantically involved with them once aforementioned girl is of age….Not to mention that the man believed her to be his relative…I had never been happier to be spoiled.
I’ve mentioned my hatred of this series before (here), but I’ll explain this spoil purposeful spoil. I spoiled Beautiful Chaos because I couldn’t bring myself to finish the book and I wanted to know if the end was worth it (it wasn’t). After learning this I was pretty much done with the series, but I wanted to know how it concluded, so I searched for a spoiler. Surprisingly, it was hard to find, but when I did my reaction was
So, Amma dies… Lena still doesn’t make a damn choice…Ethan is still stupid as fuck
Logan Enchanted was a random, accidental spoil. I was really into the blurb and theme of an ugly duckling, so this was an automatic buy for me until I saw a review. I trust this reviewer and she said the hero was a douche. I hate douchey hero’s (unless they’re funny too). So I kept reading and realized the hero was an average looking guy turned sexy hunk, but his attitude also got a makeover. The heroine has a boyfriend but likes this new version of the hero…sex…sex…dark sex…douchey comments/actions…blah. Hell no.
Shatter Me Trilogy
I think most of you know about this shit.
Black Swan Affair
Black Swan Affair was a very purposeful spoil. I don’t like love triangles. They’re an overdone, annoying feature in books but I was intrigued by this book. However, after reading the blurb I already knew who I wanted to win the heroines heart, which put me in an interesting position. So, I scoured the internet looking for ANYONE to spoil the book for me, and it took me forever, but I finally found one. After learning the hero I want to win won I was all set.
Do you have spoilers you were grateful for?
