IMHO: Junior Novelizations

The In My Honest Opinion Series (IMHO) is a series of posts for the purpose of declaring my opinion on certain subjects.  My honest opinion.  (Yes, thank you, Mary.)  These posts will be my totally unbiased, totally unaltered-on-any-grounds opinion.  Each and every one of my readers are entitled to the right to comment below with their own opinion and an argument, if they so desire.  Let us begin.
 
You’ve all seen them.  They’re those over-simplified novelizations of movies that are coming out.  These books are released as much as two months ahead of the movie and they’re full of SPOILERS.
 
I always see them at Target because I go there the most, but they’re probably at all major bookstores.
 
I find them super annoying.  I mean, what’s the point???  Do the publishers think that they’re going to boost their ticket sales by telling everyone the ENTIRE plot of an upcoming movie?!
 
I usually just look at the pictures.  Which is what I did earlier today, when my brother and I stopped at Target for some items.  Anyway.  We looked in the back for a certain CD full of songs from a certain blonde guy named Aaronjolras.  (It wasn’t there.  *sad face*)
 
I turned a corner and there they were.  Frozen books.  Now, I did what I usually do – went for the junior novelization, straight to the middle, and was pleased to see some new pictures.  Like always, no spoilers.  I was happy.
 
However.  Then, I made the mistake of looking at the toddler version for more pictures.  Sadly, my gaze fell upon a certain word describing a certain picture.
 
My heart probably missed a few beats as it dropped to my shoes.  ‘Noooooo!!’  I thought, utterly horrified at the mistake I’d made.  I can’t believe I read that!’
 
I’ll end by saying this:  DO NOT, under ANY circumstances, READ THOSE JUNIOR NOVELIZATIONS!!!  Or even the coloring books or the toddler versions!!!  If you want the plot of Frozen, or the plot of any upcoming movie, for that matter, to stay oblivious to you… Heed. My. Warning.
 
That is all.
 
Go see Frozen.  If not for Idina Menzel, go see it for Santino Fontana.  Cuz they’re both awesome.
 
That is all.

  1. Jane – I'm NOT TELLING.Melody – Well. I JUST wanted to see new pictures. GRACIOUS. YESSSSS!!!!Amy – AMEN!!!!Hahahaha…. SOOOOO SORRYYYYYY!!! I, like, completely forgot. : P You got some of the pictures last night. I'll try to do it soon!Kate – I KNOW, RIGHT?! Same here. : P

  2. Why would they do a book for toddlers? Like they're going to know what's going on….But, yes, I don't read the book until AFTER I've seen the movie. I like surprises. Pictures and trailers, yes. Books that tell the whole thing and spoil it, no thank you.

  3. Spoilers are a no-no.That's just life, peeps.DON'T WRITE BOOKS FULL OF SPOILERS FOR CHILDREN. IT WILL TEACH THEM TO TRUST NO ONE, AND TRUST SHOULD BE KEPT AS LONG AS POSSIBLE.Also… just saying that…*begins to chant obnoxiously* WE WANT A POST ON CINDERELLA. WE WANT A POST ON CINDERELLA. WRITE A POST ON CINDERELLA, EOWYYYYYYYYNNNNNNNN. SOME OF US DID NOT GET TO SEE LAURA OSNES PERFORM LIVE. SOME OF US WOULD LIKE TO READ ABOUT IT. EOWYN WRITE US A POST ON CINDERELLA.*retreats into politeness*Please.

  4. What was the spoiler and the picture?? (I'm sorry if this was a completely clueless question. Either that, or you don't want your readers to know, in which case you won't tell me anyway. :D)BUT. I agree with you TOTALLY about junior novelizations. I mean, the pictures are usually great (and who can resist looking at pictures for upcoming movies?), but why would you want to read a book that's basically a list of spoilers? Especially if it's written for toddlers…:DAnyway. That's my HO. Great post! 🙂
