Waiting on Wednesday #55


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

Crewel by Gennifer Albin
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux for YR
Expected Publication: October 16th, 2012
Pages: 368
Goodreads Summary:
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.

It was Crewel's gorgeous cover that pulled me in first, but the summary sounds just as fascinating and therefore I couldn't stop myself from adding this book to my to-read list. Can't wait to get a copy of this!

What are you waiting for this Wednesday?

  8. This has to be at the top of my list too. I think the blurb sucks me in more than the cover, I'll admit. But it's not a bad sight for the eyes!
