Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly discussion hosted by Rukky @Eternity Books where a bookish topic is discussed each week. This week’s topic is: Is there a time limit on spoilers? (suggested by Megan @ Megabunny Reads)
No. There should never be a time limit on spoilers. Whether or not the book was published last week or in the 17th century, there is always going to be someone who hasn’t read it.
I actually haven’t read any of the Harry Potter books except for the first one! Someday, I’ll probably read the series, but until then, I don’t want to know what happens! Obviously, I have read a few ( a lot) of spoilers of the books, but I still would like to keep the number of spoilers I read as little as possible.
Once, someone spoiled a big part of the 3rd Anne of Green Gables book, and I was only like halfway through the first on, and I was so sad, and even though I was I think 9 when it happened, I still remember it. It’s important to keep in mind that if you spoil a part of a book, the persons going to remember it.
I’m going to keep todays LTB fairly short so, here’s my overall opinion:
There should not be a time limit on spoilers, and that applies to books, movies, and anything else with a plot and characters. If someone hasn’t read a book, then you should not spoil any part of the story, even if it’s a tiny little detail that you think won’t matter UNLESS YOU ASK THEM.
