Summary from B&
What a tangled world she weaves...
For generations, Spinsters have been called by Arras’s Manipulation Services to work the looms and determine what people eat, where they live, how many children they have, and even when they die. Gifted with the rare ability to weave time with matter, Adelice is exactly what the Guild is looking for, and in 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 once you become a Spinster, there is no turning back. Now caught in a web of lies and intrigue, Adelice must decide who to trust: her kind mentor, Enora; the handsome and mysterious valet Jost; or the charismatic Guild ambassador Cormac Patton. They each have secrets, but Adelice is about to unravel the deadliest one of all, a sinister truth that could destroy reality as she knows it. In a powerful and original debut about a world where the Guild decides everything, one extraordinary girl dares to defy the power of men and the boundaries of love.

Midway Chatter:

I'm really enjoying this book so far. The dystopian world is very interesting. The spinsters are mind blowing. The way it's written is beautiful. Gennifer Ablin uses such poetic words and descriptions. I love the cover, it's represents the book perfectly. It's complex, interesting, and beautiful. I love everything about Adelice, she is very interesting to read about. Now on to boy talk. Jost!, I can't really explain him but he is really mysterious and I can just tell he will be one of those book boys I wish was real. So far Crewel is exciting and interesting. 

Stay tuned for my full review of Crewel on Friday the 28th, and for the release of Crewel on October 16th.
