Waiting on Wednesday {52}

Welcome to my favorite Feature:

“Waiting on” Wednesday is hosted weekly by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

 

 

 

 

See guys what I found???

Crewel

Book I in the  Crewel World series
Expected publication: October 16th 2012 by Farrar, Straus and Giroux Books for Young
Wow!!!!

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.

Do covers sell books?

Hell Yeah!! I saw this cover and I had to know what this book is about! The colors, the swirls the girl! I want to know and I want to read this book!!! The synopsis is a little confusing to be honest, but… it won’t matter because I want to read this book anyway!!

Sounds very dystopian for me?

And now, please let’s share your Waiting on Wednesday and dying to see what you are waiting for!

Much Love,

  1. Of course I love the cover (so, so gorgeous), but I really like the synopsis, too. It sounds very unique and I loooove unusual premises like this one. Awesome pick! 🙂

  5. I’m not really fan of the cover. It’s too… Colourful. I’m not against colourful cover but it’s not why I want to read this one. The blurb is really attarcting. I can’t wait! 😉

    It’s flashing too much colour for my poor eyes. 😉
    But the blurb sure is thrilling. The book is on my to-read list on goodreads and I’m sure to buy it as soon as it’s available.
