Spoiler is typically defined as a person or thing that spoils something, but it’s not that easy is it? I’ve been thinking a lot lately about spoilers when it comes to book reviews. On Goodreads, there are people that will straight up lash out on others for including spoilers in their reviews, but just what exactly is considered a spoiler?
I recently reviewed a book and compared my review to somebody else’s review on the same book and they had many labels for spoilers that I really didn’t consider spoilers at all. It made me reflect on my review writing and I’m questioning if I’m giving out too much information about the content.
–I’ve noticed that some people consider listing any part of the actual story as a spoiler, but does that mean that the blurb is considered one giant spoiler than?
-What do you consider a spoiler and how do you feel about reviews that include spoilers without a warning?
