Waiting On Wednesday (19)

Wednesday, April 18, 2012


"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.



Crewel (Crewel World #1) by Gennifer Albin

Crewel (The Crewel World, #1)


Incapable. Awkward. Artless.

That’s what the other girls whisper behind her back. But sixteen year-old Adelice Lewys has a secret: she wants to fail.

Gifted with the ability to weave time with matter, she’s exactly what the Guild is looking for, and in the world of Arras, being chosen as a Spinster is everything a girl could want. It means privilege, eternal beauty, and being something other than a secretary. It also means the power to embroider the very fabric of life. But if controlling what people eat, where they live and how many children they have is the price of having it all, Adelice isn’t interested.

Not that her feelings matter, because she slipped and wove a moment at testing, and they’re coming for her—tonight.
Now she has one hour to eat her mom’s overcooked pot roast. One hour to listen to her sister’s academy gossip and laugh at her Dad’s stupid jokes. One hour to pretend everything’s okay. And one hour to escape.

Because once you become a Spinster, there’s no turning back. 

I have been pining for this book for what feels like forever! I love the cover and the story sounds totally epic! I was beyond excited when I got a copy of this yesterday. I'd like to say that I will be patient and wait to read it, but who am I kidding? That is sooo not happening! Look for this one to hit stores near you on October 16th!

What books are you waiting for?

  4. The blurb is a little confusing to me. But a beautiful cover and seems to really fit the weaving theme. Will wait for your review!
