I have two different answers to this question and they are dependent on whether I look at it from a reviewer’s POV or from that of a reader. As a book blogger I’d have to go with no because I want my reviews to be read by the largest audience possible and that means no spoilers. But then again, I know when I personally visit other blogs and see a review for an installment in a series that I’m not 100% up-to-date on I will typically skim the review because you never know! No one likes to have an ending ruined.
From a reader’s perspective, there’s nothing I enjoy more than gushing about the latest book in my favourite series online with my friends. Being able to link the latest installment to a previous novel’s happenings makes me feel like I have a close, insider’s-type connection to the book. When I’ve been following the same characters for 5+ installments, I know and love the author’s writing style and, I’m really only reading to spend some quality time with my favourite paranormal personalities.
What about you?
