maybe it’s me, but…

Apparently I hate with a passion spoilers in blurbs and in reviews, yet I’m a self-confessed flick-to-the-ender.

Yeah.

Work that one out cos I’m seriously fucked if I know what’s going on with me.

Heh.

  1. Chris says:

    Yeah, I was wondering about that. 😀

    I'm against spoilers and against flicking to end of the book.

  2. Sean Kennedy says:

    They all die at the end.

  3. I'm against spoilers and sometimes will only SKIM the blurb for keywords that mean I might like the story… BUT once I am into the story then it is my call on if and what I want spoiled. It's all a control thing 😉

  4. Sloan Parker says:

    Or they all end up in bed at the end. 😉

    I also want to choose when or if I get spoiled.

  5. Jason says:

    ack! I don't want to know what happens til I am there!

  6. Jenre says:

    I'm with the cat on the Crocs.

    Yep, I think we established some time ago that you are a very strange person.

    It's a good thing we love you anyway :).

  7. Join the club hon – contrary is our middle name…

    It must be our choice – it doesn't have to make sense… it just is.

    🙂

  8. Natasha A. says:

    That's easy! You want to be in control of the spoilers 😉

  9. Tam says:

    I like spoilers and I like flicking to the end. Take that!

    I still want to start a website called “bookpoopers.com” which is like moviepoopers.com. People can go on and say “Dumbledore is killed by Snape” and then people don't have to actually READ the book. Sometimes I don't care about the whole book, I only want to know who the killer is, who the baby daddy really is, or if the hero chose person A or B. I'm never going to read the book, EVER even if no one ever tells me the end, so don't think you can convince me to read it by being coy. Tell me or not. Whatever.

    So there. Some day I shall work on that website. As for your condition, I think Nathasha got that.

  10. D.L. says:

    I don't mind spoilers in reviews or blurbs but if I drop a book and it lands on the last page I'm like *OMG sheild your eyes!* (yea, and that's even if I've already read a spoiler). Idk I guess I have issues.

  11. Eyre says:

    I hate spoilers. I try my best to warn folks if I just have to mention something.

    I don't understand people who read the end first.

    I threaten my students with all sorts of dire things so that they don't ruin stories for my slower readers.

  12. Kris says:

    Chris: I had a feeling that someone would have noticed.

    Sean: *sigh* There's always one who has to spoil it for the rest of us.

    Miranda: “BUT once I am into the story then it is my call on if and what I want spoiled.”

    I'm so stealing that.

    Sloan: Of course, they all end up in bed together in the end. If there isn't a gratuitous after the HEA of HFN sex scene at the end of an m/m than there is something seriously wrong with the author. ;P

  13. Kris says:

    Jase: I did toss around the possibility that you are just a sappy romantic, but I decided I was right the last time. You're just anal. 😛

    Jen: Gee, Jen, thanks. Thanks a lot.

    EH: It's funny how popular 'Contrary' is as a middle name these days. 😉

    Natasha: Sounds great to me! Phew! Although this does confirm that I am a control freak… which I hope that you will keep just between you and me. 🙂

  14. Kris says:

    Tam: I like the sound of bookpoopers.com. I'd definitely help you with that. *GRIN*

    DL: LOL! You're as bad as I am. Maybe we need a support group? Or perhaps you just have the same middle name as EH and I? 😉

    Eyre: “I don't understand people who read the end first.”

    Apparently in my case it's a control freak thing. Or the fact that I'm notoriously impatient.

    Probably both.

  15. Sean Kennedy says:

    Kris: “If there isn't a gratuitous after the HEA of HFN sex scene at the end of an m/m than there is something seriously wrong with the author.”

    Hmm, Dash and Dingo ended with the lovers being on seperate continents…

  16. Kris says:

    Case closed.

  17. Kris says:

    *kiss, kiss*

  18. Ingrid says:

    I notice that I read the end of a book in “normal” books, re none m/m.
    I never never did that before but lately? Almost always and I have to push myself to not read the last page.

    Otherwise I hate spoilers in books. Also in comments on reviews. I notice some people do to make a point. But I do not like it

  19. Kris says:

    Ingrid: I dislike it when people make spoilery comments as well, especially if the reviewer has made an effort not to or to warn people if their review contains spoilers. It is most annoying.

    Also, I wonder why you have changed to a flick-to-the-ender?? It;s interesting that it's only recently that you've begun to do that.

  20. Ingrid says:

    My guess is a sort of disinterest in the book. Those books are from the library so there is no harm done when I don't finish them or not read them completely.
    These things I find a waste in bought books, my m/m ones.

    In general I find it hard to concentrate and read normal books since I started to read m/m. I was a hardcore sci-fi and fantasy reader but nowadays? The only one that held my complete interest was Towers of Mignight from the TWOT series. I actually stayed up till 5 to finish it

  21. K. Z. Snow says:

    So, do spoiler-haters just not read older releases that have been discussed to death? Or books that have been “spoiled” by indiscreet reviewers?

    I'm currently reading a years-old novel, 'cause I've been curious about all the fuss surrounding it, so I know exactly what the Moment of the Big Gasp will entail. I wonder if I'll be underwhelmed when I get there…

  22. Chris says:

    It helps to have a really bad memory. 🙂

  23. Sloan Parker says:

    Kris said…“If there isn't a gratuitous after the HEA of HFN sex scene at the end of an m/m than there is something seriously wrong with the author. ;P”

    Ah…So that's what I've been doing wrong. There wasn't enough sex in my m/m/m 😉

  24. Kris says:

    Ingrid: “Those books are from the library so there is no harm done when I don't finish them or not read them completely.”

    Ah, I can totally understand that. I just wish I didn't do it for the books I buy. *sigh*

    KZ: My thing is to do with spoiler reviews, which can also give the effect of something that has been discussed to death.

    Chris: Braggart.

    Sloan: “There wasn't enough sex in my m/m/m”

    Exactly. It was very disappointing. 😛

  25. I confess to maybe reading the ending of the book first before I start it. My therapist and I are 'working' on this.

  26. orannia says:

    I'm OK with spoilers, but I like warning. I usually look at spoilers. As for flicking to the end…I do it if I'm bored.

    My verification words is 'disedos' and for some reason I initially read 'dildos'.

    Love the LOLCat!

  27. Kris says:

    Orannia: “My verification words is 'disedos' and for some reason I initially read 'dildos'.”

    *snort* I think you've been hanging around this lot a bit too much, Orannia. ;P
