Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Lainey (Gingerreadslainey on Youtube) on Goodreads, and every Wednesday, book lovers will share their list of Top 5 books/characters/etc depending on the topic of the week through their book blogs, Instagram, Tumblr, etc. This week’s topic is Books I Was Spoiled For.
Spoilers and I have a very complicated relationship. Lots of times, I find myself going online, looking for spoilers to books, TV shows, and movies, just to make sure that there is going to be a happy ending. But sometimes, PEOPLE spoil these movies/TV shows/books for me when I didn’t ask for it. And that is when things get bad. Here is a list of books that were spoiled for me by me or by other people.
5. Fairy Tale Retellings
Do they count? I mean, everyone knows how these fairy tales end, it’s just the ‘telling’ that’s different. I still consider myself spoiled for them, but it doesn’t mean I would stop reading fairy tale retellings. I love fairy tales 🙂
4. Game of Thrones Series
No one spoiled the books for me. But I watch the TV series, and since the author is involved in the making of the show, I’m assuming that there aren’t too many big differences between the show and the books. I will still read these books someday soon, though. I hope. My TBR list just keeps piling up 😦
3. The Selection Series
I read the summary of The Heir (the fourth book) on Goodreads. Enough said.
I LOVE the Seven Realms series, so when I heard that the author would publish another book set in the same world, I had to read it! I went on Goodreads, read the summary, and being the person I am, I started reading reviews from people who have read the ARCs. I don’t know what happens exactly, but from what I’ve read, I KNOW something bad is going to happen early in the book (I’m sorry for this spoiler people. I didn’t mean it. It just happened), and now I’m scared to read it. Doesn’t mean I wont though.
1.The Fault in Our Stars
I let this book stay on my TBR pile for so long (procrastination is like the demon on my shoulder) and someone spoiled it for me. I guess I shouldn’t have been sitting with people who were discussing the book, so that was my fault. But still. It was spoiled for me.
So here is my Top 5 Wednesday post this week. I really enjoy doing these posts and I’m looking forward to next week’s topic 🙂
