T5W – Books You Shouldn’t Be Spoiled For


It’s Top 5 Wednesday, a meme hosted by booktuber Lainey aka gingereadslainey for which you can join on the Goodreads page here. The topic for this week was “Books You’ve Been Spoiled For” but since that has never happened to me or at least not in a significant way that I can remember I decided to tweak the topic a little and talk about books for which you should stay as far away from Spoilers as possible.
I don’t know about you, but I always feel like there are some books that can’t be spoiled for – like a simple romance. It’s a little obvious that in the end the boy/girl is getting the boy/girl. But then there are those books that are just better the less you know about them – everything feels like the biggest twist in the history of literature! So, for the sake of not spoiling anything, I won’t even comment on the books and just list them. Sometimes it’s an actual single turn of events that made me put them on here, other times it’s the entire course the story is taking. See for yourself!

Red Rising/Golden Son by Pierce Brown

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard


We Were Liars by E. Lockhart


Shatter Me Series by Tahereh Mafi

My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick


Have you read any of the books I’ve mentioned? Do you see where I am coming from? What are some books you got spoiled for or wouldn’t want others to know anything about in advance? Don’t hesitate to link back to you T5W post in the comments below.

    • Right? I didn’t get the love triangle in the first book either, but then as I saw the development – it made so much sense! I don’t mind tiny spoilers for some stories, but sometimes I don’t even know the plot and it turned out awesome!

  1. I haven’t read any of these and I know pretty much nothing about any of them, yay! Shatter Me is about a girl with some kind of deadly touch and there’s a love triangle???? We Were Liars…. dinner parties??? Lies??? Red Queen is basically The Hunger Games (is what I’ve heard) and Red Rising is… on another planet??? The moon??? *blissfully unspoiled*

  2. Yes, Red Rising has so many twists as a series – I am hiding from the world the day Morning Star comes out so I can read it with spoiler free! I also didn’t expect My Life Next Door to be a twist filled kind of book, I have a copy which Jenna gifted me – excited to read it now!

    • I pre-ordered Morning Star and it’s on its way now and I AM SO EXCITED. I can’t read any tweets or reviews for it. I don’t want to know anything until I get to read it myself.
      Oh yeah, you expect My Life Next Door to be this sweet contemporary love story and then it just sneaks up on you with that one twist. Happy reading!


  3. The ending of We Were Liars left me in shock for hours. It just came out of nowhere and hit me straight in the face. Same for My Life Next Door. My heart just shattered for the Garretts 😦
