I'm sure we have all been in a position where we are so excited about an upcoming book, whether it be the first in a series or the last and then have it ruined by seeing spoilers all over social media.
I know some people don't mind spoilers and I used to be one of those people. When I first started reading, it was not unusual for me to flip to the last page and read it. This wasn't just with books either, I would get online and look up TV shows and movies. And then I realized, I don't enjoy reading or watching those shows/movies as much when I know what's going to happen.
After that big revelation, I decided not to do it that way anymore and I became a strict no spoilers type of girl and if you read my reviews you will probably notice the line "I don't want to give anything away" in quite a bit of them. That's because I don't want to ruin the book for someone else. However, not everyone else feels the same about spoilers and that's ok. But, I still wish people would issue some kind of warning before posting a spoiler. I know a lot of people do and to those who do I want to say THANK YOU! But some don't and I can't help but feel upset about it because it ruins something for me.
I was so disappointed when I was scrolling through Twitter and saw a MAJOR spoiler for Allegiant, I'm talking about couldn't get any more spoilery spoiler. And it killed me because I knew right then that I would like the book as much. This also happened with the last season of Sons of Anarchy, I was scrolling through my news feed on Facebook and saw the most spoilery spoiler of all about the season finale and I almost died. Yes, I still read the book and watched the last episode but it just wasn't the same.
