For the first two years on Goodreads, when I was a more active participant, I would read my friend's spoilers all of the time. I didn't really have any concerns about the story being ruined for me. I viewed it more as seeing what I had to look forward to. That way of thinking changed when I was scrolling through a conversation on Goodreads about Frostbite because I had just finished reading it and I came across a huge fan art spoiler for the next book in the series. Those of you who have read Shadow Kiss can guess who the picture was of and what he/she looked like. The caption read something like,
Yep, that's right. In a discussion about book 2, someone wanted to talk about everything that happened in book 3.
I still read Shadow Kiss and it was pretty good. Would it have been better without the twist revealed ahead of time? Definitely.
So that's my experience. What about you? Have you ever had a story spoiled for you? Or do you enjoy reading spoilers?
