Balancing trigger warnings and spoilers

What an interesting way to start of my 30’s — shelter-in-place, woooooo! What better things to do than to review my too many books in my backlog and pick up some more? Here’s a short rant of mine.

So, like any book reviewer might do, I peruse NetGalley and sometimes take a look at the variety of reviews from other members. Most of the time I’ll take a look when I’m partway or almost done with a book and ready to give my review back to the publisher. One book I just recently did it for was one I really enjoyed — so I went to go give it a review, being almost done with the book. Then it hit.

Trigger warnings with major spoilers that didn’t happen in the book so far.
