Waiting on Wednesday: Crewel

Waiting On Wednesday #8! 
"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, 
hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights 
upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I picked:
Crewel by Gennifer Albin
Expected Publication: 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.

So..... Whoa! What a synopsis?! This one has me really intrigued. I think this book is going to be great. I've read some good and bad reviews, so I'm hoping I will like this book. And hopefully we find out pretty soon. 

Is this on your TBR?
What are you waiting on?

    1. Me too, at first glance it's okay. But when you really take a look at it, I feel like it says so much. Cant wait to read this one.

  2. I read this and it was a little disappointing but maybe the finished copy will clear up some of the questions I have. I really like this cover and I'm anxious to see what the rest of the series has in store. Lovely pick!
