Crewel (Crewel World #1) by Gennifer Albin

Title: Crewel (Crewel World #1) 
Author: Gennifer Albin
Pages: 368
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR) 
Release Date: October 16, 2012

Summary: (Goodreads)

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.

Wow, what a great book!! I am still in shock of how amazing it was!! From learning about this novel from other bloggers I had to see what the hype was which only excites readers more!! I was not disappointed but thrilled when I got able to read Crewel from the awesome people at Macmillan. Crewel was creative, thrilling and words cannot descrive how Gennifer Albin weaves her characters. The cover is gorgeous because it somewhat represents some of the story.

Adelice was an awesome character because she appears shy, but in reality she like to get in trouble, has a sense of humor and will always surprise you with what she is up to next. She is compelling to read about because of the action that takes place in the novel. I really liked her because in this world she is a Spinster and she has soo much determination to get back her family. In the beginning her refusal to be brought into a life of Spinster life is to help those around her. Her abilities are out of this world!! its a mind-blowing book !

The romance was lets say which boy will steal your heart and which one belongs with Adelice because these two men are HOT and Gorgeous, Erik and Jost are also interesting characters because they have soo much background that is important of what is happening in this society of Spinsters. I thought they were both developed perfectly and is intriguing what Gennifer Albin will be doing in the next book involving Adelice's love interests. Enora is a mentor to Adelice and treated her like a daughter, save her from the evil Guild. The ending was an OMG moment thinking what will happen next after what happened

Overall, Crewel was amazing and interesting that this is a MUST read!! Gennifer Albin created a great series and I am looking forward to the next book in the series!! I also liked the idea of Adelice being able to  create things by weaving it into time and matter. It felt magical because you can see all the things Gennifer wrote coming to life in your mind. This book is definitely one of my favorite books of 2012!
