This week is all about those books that were completely spoiled for you, but you read anyways! Personally, I don’t care when things are spoiled for me because I love the journey, but I understand people who hate spoilers. Let’s get started!
1. Planet of the Apes by Pierre Boulle
I watched the movie before I read the book (oops)!
2. The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
I only saw the third installment of the movie, but it hooked me and actually got me to read the book!
3. Harry Potter and the Half-Prince by J.K. Rowling
My brother actually ruined this one for me WHILE I was reading it. Here’s how it went down: This was the first book that came out while I was reading the series (the other ones had already been released) and I didn’t want the excitement to be over, so I waited awhile to pick up the book. When I finally did though, I read it in two days. But before I finished the book, I was called to dinner and it was right when Harry had gone in to the forest to confront Voldemort and the Avada Kedavra curse had been shot at him. I’m at the table, antsy as ever and my brother goes, “Don’t worry. He doesn’t die.” Worst. Moment. Ever.
Thankfully, I think those are the only books that have been ruined for me thus far in my life. I don’t know how I got away with it, but I’m very pleased about it.
