  • I have read The Fifty Shades of Grey series but not watched the movies.
  • I have neither read Fallen, nor am I looking forward to watch the movie, because I have watched the trailer on YouTube and I think that’s enough.
  • I am not a Swiftie…no, I do love three songs that she’s sang throughout her life, most of the times I find myself falling asleep when her song comes on and yes, my younger sister told me I need deliverance!

Don’t you just hate it when someone bursts your neat awesome bubble? See, I never mind spoilers, or always looking up some information online, but what gets to me is always the teasers that come after some programs and they go like “on the next episode of blah blah blah,” and then they show some epic scenes.

I mean, really, why show me a ten second clip when you know you have me hooked and I am already counting the days or hours to the next episode? This rant has nothing to do with the fact that I missed out on an episode of my favorite show because of a blackout! It has everything to do with kplc.

I also hate this when it comes to books. I do not want a sample chapter of the next book. I want to read about the author, where to leave a review and maybe see the cover of the next book, and that’s that! So, imagine me ranting about this when I am about to do exactly the same thing!

Wait, you can hate on me later, but there’s this book that’s coming out on October 10th, that’s in 41 days time! It’s titled Begin Again by Mona Kasten.

Begin Again: Allie and Kaden's Story by [Kasten, Mona]

Half the blurb goes: He makes the rules. She breaks them all. A new start. It’s the only thing keeping Allie Harper going, when she packs up her life and moves across the country to Woodshill, Oregon. She’s about to start college, desperate to leave the ghosts of her past behind her. Even if that means never talking to her parents again.

Now the hard part – finding an apartment before classes start. Just when it seems she’ll have to live out of her car, Allie visits one more place. It’s beautiful. With one exception: can she stand being roommates with campus bad boy Kaden White? Sure, Kaden is sexy with his tattoos and careless attitude, but he’s also an arrogant jerk. With nowhere else to go, Allie moves in.

The first thing Kaden does is make a set of rules. Either Allie obeys, or she’s out:

1. Don’t talk about your girl problems.
2. Keep your mouth shut if I bring someone home.
3. We will NEVER hook up.

There’s been too many “I”s in this post, now let’s get down to how to be a spoilsport:

  1. Forget the words ‘spoil’ and ‘sport’ if you aren’t feeling it, don’t force it. 7 billion people and plus cannot fit into one box!
  2. If you saw something or know something about entertainment before your friends do, give ’em hell! Don’t shut up about it! If you are my friend and you are all about the StoryMoja Festival…shut up!
  3. Be like kermit
