Waiting on Wednesday (19)

Waiting on Wednesday was created by Jill at Breaking the Spineand it is a weekly event showcasing an  upcoming release we're excited for!
My pick:
Crewel (Crewel World, #1) by Gennifer Albin
Release Date: October 16, 2012
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.
The first thing that drew me to this book was the cover (I love all the colors!), and the story itself sounds original and super interesting, so I cannot wait for this book! What are your thoughts?


  1. From someone who has read it, it is AMAZING! Should definitely be on everyone's TBR pile!

    Here's my post about Crewel!

    1. Ahhh, you are so lucky! And your post has made me even more excited for the book (which I really did not think was possible)! >< Great post, btw!! October can't get here quick enough!
