Spines Speak: Bookish Week and Blogiversary Qs

I was planning to post a recap of the readathon I was participating in this weekend but then I didn’t read a single page.

But it was still a very bookish week with another Frenzy Presents preview last Tuesday (recap coming soon!), World Book Day, Shakespeare’s birthday, and Independent Bookstore Day that has thankfully introduced me to many new bookstores I’ll add to my visit list!

Graphic of book covers lined up on a pink background with text that reads "On shelves this summer, Frenzy". Titles include Realm Breaker, Meet Cute Diary, Just Last Night, and Excuse Me While I Ugly Cry.

A sneak peek at some upcoming titles!

I still wanted to make a quick note about the readathon as they posted some harmful content as the event was wrapping up that hasn’t been appropriately addressed. I’ve shared some threads about it on Twitter, but rather than respond to criticism or engage with folks who were hurt by the upcoming theme, the readathon team chose to delete all announcement posts and cancelled the event. I won’t be participating in their future events until there is appropriate acknowledgement and apology for the harm caused.

I also wanted to take this time to again encourage blogiversary questions! I’m celebrating 5 years this Thursday and plan to do a little 5 year recap on the blog, as well as answer any questions you may have for me. I’ve got some fun, away from the computer, plans on the day as well and I’m very much looking forward to those!

Hope you all had a very bookish week!

What’s one fun thing from your weekend?
