RJ | 40 comments Hi,

Is there a list anywhere on internet or here in goodreads that helps you know if a book's gonna spoil another read???

For example:

The Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick
Warning: This book will spoil some classics if you have yet to read them.

1. The Scarlet Letter
2. The Great Gatsby
3. A Farewell to Arms
4. The Catcher in the Rye
5. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
6. The Bell Jar

And so far Lucky by Alice Seabold has spoiled Don Quixote for me (wished there was a warning somewhere) :(...

Plz plz plz let me know or help create one :)

Zombieslayer⚡Alienhunter (theslayingisthunter) | 154 comments Changes, the 12th installment of The Dresden Files, while it doesn't spoil The Fellowship of the Ring, gives away a lot of the plot. I'd read it before Changes so it didn't matter to me though.

Plus The Dresden Files overall spoils most of the Star Wars trilogy. Can't imagine anyone who'd want to read those books hasn't seen Star Wars though. Great nerds think alike.
