Musing Monday (26)

 Musing Mondays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.  Each week we will get a fun reading related question to answer.  This week Musing asks:

Do you read the ending before you start a book? Do you ever skip ahead to read the ending?

This is a definite no.  I can’t ever bring myself to read the end before I actually get there.  I have to do everything in order and I can’t skip, and I can’t read the ending before it comes because then it will just ruin everything else for me.  People have ruined book for me before because of telling the ending.  I am the same way with movies and TV shows, I just can’t do it out of order.  I like to find out things and experience them as they happen.  Definitely no skipping or reading ahead for me!

  1. Haha. I often scope out the ending of a book if I am getting really stressed about, and worrying about the main characters. It’s not that I want to know the ending of the whole story, I just want to make sure the characters are okay. Does that make sense? I don’t do it with every book though. And I never did it with HP, or anything like that.

    • It definitely makes sense. I can’t tell you how many times I have stressed over the characters! I let myself be stressed though, lol. I just can’t bring myself to check ahead.

  2. My husband is the same way with movies and such!! I can have someone tell me something and it wont ruin it for me but it does take some of that oomph out of what I am reading / watching!

  3. There is one reason why I go to the ending, once in awhile. However, I always check to see how many pages are in the book, but I never read the ending in doing so.

  4. I’m like you and can’t imagine skipping to the end. But my daughter always sneaks a peek at the ending before she starts reading. I don’t know where she got that idea from!

    • I love to experience everything as it happens. If I know what is going to happen, I just don’t get the same effect. My cousin liked for me to tell her parts of the story it doesn’t bother her.

  5. I Like your answer. Order is important. Here is my post:

  6. I can’t bring myself to read the ending first, too afraid I might not the like the ending. *scaredy cat* lol…

  7. Books are about the journey, not the end result! I don’t understand why people are anxious to learn the end of characters they haven’t even bothered to make connections with.
