I know, I know. Just add that lovely asterix'd warning of **SPOILERS AHEAD** but I hate that for some reason. I want to be able to write reviews that anyone can read but I find if more difficult to do so without revealing some spoilers from the previous books or plots. For example, I just binge read the entire Fever series by Karen Mare Moning and as I'm writing my reviews I felt so repetitive about saying, 'the plot gets better' and 'oh my gosh, each book goes into more details about this world.'...BORING. But for this series I will totally ruin the surprises of the plot and the amazing reveals of the previous books if I don't put the plot into some context. I used to write reviews revealing ALL the plot and talking about each part and why I liked it...yeah, that was WAY too much freaking work and my reviews were ridiculously long. And while I really don't like doing the spoiler alert I'm finding that I have to otherwise the review ends up being too vague and boring and pretty much useless to the reader.
What do you guys think?
Am I overreacting?
Do y'all care that much?
What are YOU looking for in a review of a book in the middle of a series?
Do you read reviews of books in a series you haven't read?
Bloggers--do you have difficulty with this, too?
