For generations, girls known as Spinsters have been called by Arras's Manipulation Services to work the looms and control what people eat, where they live, how many children they have, and even when they die. Gifted with the unusual ability to weave time with matter, sixteen-year-old Adelice Lewys is 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 mean the power to embroider the fabric of life. But Adelice isn't interested. Because once you become a Spinster, there's no turning back.

Reading the first five chapters is almost not a fair thing to do to yourself... The story is so gripping and you just begin to immerse yourself into Adelice's life as an Eligible, and then it ends. Now you have to wait... Trust me waiting to read the rest of a book like this is hard. Gennifer Albin is an amazing writer and Crewel is a woven masterpiece! Believe me YOU WANT TO READ THIS BOOK. Dystopian has become such a loved genre for YA. Crewel is a beautiful example of an excellent dystopian world. Gennifer has really out done herself with the creation of the societal structure in this novel! I was hooked right away and you will be too! I can't wait to get my copy on Oct. 16th!

Crewel is SPINTASTIC! Team Fabric of Life A HUGE THANK YOU to Around The World ARC Tours for allowing me to read this ARC. I have to say I have never read anything like this before. The way Gennifer set this world up was nice and slow. Sometimes slow is painful but in this case it is GREAT! I was able to follow the new world and grow right along side Adelice. Adelice lives with a secret that she wants to keep from everyone. She wants to be normal and she definitely does not want to be a Spinster. But one day while she is being tested she accidentally spins time and everyone is shocked that she is a spinster. Now she only has an hour left with her family before they come for her. She is terrified because she does not want to be separated from her family. She is also afraid that once she becomes a Spinster she will effect everything and everyone around her and she does not want to do that. When they come to get her and bring her to Arras where the Spinsters live she finds things hard. She sees things she has never seen and she meets boys and girls that are like her. She will have to learn the ways of this new world. While there she find out what it means to feel love she will meet two boys but before you say it no it is really not a love triangle. She will experience friendships and other things. And as she goes through each trial she will have to learn to adapt to stay alive. She will realize that The Guild controls everything and she will have to learn to adapt. Adelice will have to fight her way through and keep true to herself. What will she do to keep her family safe? This is such a GREAT read I stayed up till 3am in the morning till I was able to finish. It ended in a good place but it had me saying dam I need book two like right now! This should be added to your MUST READ pile because you will LOVE it!
