I am super duper excited to host the Crewel Blog Tour today and I have something mega special for you!

Crewel was a phenomenal book and I am excited that Gennifer will share some Teasers for the next book today with us!

Also, thanks to the awesome people at Macmillian, I have a cute Giveaway for you at the end!

….but for now, please welcome the wonderful Gennifer Albin: 

Trying to give you a sneak peek of Crewel #2 without spoilers is sort of like trying to swim without getting wet.  In fact, I can’t even tell you the super-secret title of book two yet, but I can tell you:

 

Awww!!! I’m sooo excited! I cannot wait for the next book. Crewel ends in such an explosive and thrilling way that I am more than eager to pick up the next book in this phenomenal series!

Crewel by Gennifer Albin  on 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.

Quote from my  4.5* Review:

Read it here. 

Crewel was brilliant! Gennifer Albin created a unique story with an awe-inspiring world creation. Crewel will appeal to many readers, as it harbors different types of beloved genres, Dystopian, Scifi and Fantasy meshed perfectly with an adorable love story.

  1. Jaime Lester

    I am absolutely crazy about that cover, first of all. And besides that, the book sounds awesome! How do you make yourself okay with having to become a failure, listening to others ridicule you, knowing that what they say could not be further from the truth. And because some of my most trusted bloggy’s have loved it. That bodes pretty well for me!

  2. Cordelia Fitzgerald

    I haven’t read it yet but the cover alone is amazing! What fascinates me is that all the blogs I frequent has nothing but 5 stars for this book! I cannot wait to read it!!!

  3. Aly

    The thing that fascinates me about Crewel is probably the cover for starters! The whole idea of weaving time sounds so interesting, I am really looking foward to finding this book!

  4. Daisy R

    I haven’t gotten the chance to pick this one up yet, but it sounds awesome. It sounds very different, and I like the time aspect of it. Have heard nothing but good things about it.

  5. AHHHHHHH! #1! And #4. And #5! I NEED TO READ ABOUT ALL OF THESE THINGS DANNY! I loved this book, it was just amazingly creative and unique, and I desperately need to know what happens next. Bring on the answers and all the kissing!

  6. I desperately want to read Crewel for so many reasons:

    1. She did an author event here in KC and I had to miss it…I’m super angry about that!
    2. I love this type of book – the dystopia mixed with a little fantasy sounds FANTASTIC!
    3. I am in LOVE with the cover of this book :o)

  7. Márcia

    I haven’t read the book but it sounds like a great read. The mix between fantasy and time-travel is awesome.

  8. Rose

    Well the beautiful cover is what caught my eye first but once I read what the book was about I have been wanting to read it. It’s different them the books I usually read, there just something about this book. I can’t wait to read it.

  9. Now I’m getting all excited for CREWEL’s sequel! I mean, I thought I knew nearly EVERYTHING about Arras, but the author says that no one really knows its true nature? The wait will surely kill me! CREWEL was one of my favorite reads of the year (and it was, no doubt, extremely unique), so I’m super pumped for the sequel.

    Thanks for sharing, Danny! 🙂

    What fascinates me about Crewel is both the stunningly beautiful book cover and what it means to be a spinster and weave time and matter. I am really excited to read this book. The synopsis sounds unique and I love the idea of ready something different than I’ve ever read before. Gennifer Albin must have an extremely creative mind, and I cannot wait to get into it and see the world, characters, and story that she has created! Thanks for the tour and giveaway Gennifer Albin and Bewitched Bookworms. I am really excited for the opportunity to win such a beautiful and amazing book!

  11. Kristie Matheson

    I haven’t read the book, but I’ve been really interested in the book for the longest time. The whole concept with the time weaving in the book is what intrigued me to read it in the first place.

  12. Melissa

    Instantly loved it after downloading the first few chapters, its been selling out quickly at the local bookstores, hard to get my hand on a copy of the book!

  13. Erin D.

    The first thing is undeniably the cover… It BEAUTIFUL!! Next would be that it’s a dystopian book, I am all about those right now and lastly I heard rumor of a hunky boy. I can’t wait to read this book!

  14. Natasha

    I can’t wait to read it because I think it sounds amazing and I love the cover! Thanks for the chance to win!

  15. Katelyn Whalen

    I haven’t read Crewel yet. *ducks for anything being thrown* But after all of the hype, I think I have to read this sometime!!

  16. Stephanie T.

    Just the title Crewel caught my interest. If that wasn’t enough to hook me, the cover sure did. There’s so much hype for it, I’m for sure going to try it at least once.

  17. Christine

    I haven’t read Crewel yet, but the cover first off got me hooked. And when your review mentioned that it was a mix of multiple genres that I love, I knew I had to check it out. Thanks for the giveaway 😀

  18. Karen

    I did not read the book yet, but CREWEL interests me because of the cover! It really attracts my attention in the bookstore, haha

  19. Tiffany Gomez

    I love love love the idea of being a ‘spinster’. Being able to weave a moment of time is such a cool concept. And so is the fact that this is such a huge power that she could basically control everyone through it. I haven’t read this book, but I reallllyyy want to. (: Thanks for the amazing giveaway!

  20. Amber

    i love the thought of how there could be another kind of world with different rules… wouldn’t it be like living in a dream?

  21. JennyC

    The plot is so unique to me 🙂 I seriously want to read it. Plus i’ve been hearing really good things about it.

  22. Jolene A

    Wow, being a spinster sounds scary and amazing. The book sounds like a great read and I love the aspect of time weaving. Can’t wait to get started on this

  23. Honestly It was the review you did that got me so interested in reading it. Before then, I didn’t really have an interest. But after the review, I really didn’t think of reading it before you gushed about it and I understood the cover better. So, when you gush, I just know it’s going to be great!

    And now I need to know what those five teasers mean!

    I haven’t picked it up yet but the whole concept sounds interesting, though I’m not sure I’d want to be called a spinster!

  25. alicia marie

    I’ve read so many awesome reviews about this book and everything about it sounds really great! I’ve got to read it : )
