My "Waiting On" Wednesday selection this week  is...

Title: 'Crewel' Author: Gennifer Albin Release Date: 16th October, 2012

'Waiting on' Wednesday!

Why I'm excited about it

I love the colourful cover...prettty! And the world that Gennifer has created sounds so complex and fun that I really want to know more about it? Weaving time and becoming a 'Spinster'? A Rumpelstiltskin Doctor Who? Yes please.

What it's about...  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.

Let me know if you're waiting for this one/ what books you want NOW!
