Enter the world of Crewel: a world of secrets and intrigue. Where a girl with talent will thrive...or be destroyed.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 and matter, Adelice 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, power and beauty, the ability to embroider the very fabric of life. It also means entering a world secrets and lethal intrigue. But unlike the others, Adelice isn't interested in controlling what people eat, where they live and how many children they have and will do anything to hide her talent from the Guild. But when she slips up during her final test, her gift is identified. Now she has one hour to eat her mum's overcooked dinner. One hour to listen to her sister's school gossip and laugh at her dad's stupid jokes. One hour to pretend everything is OK. And one hour to escape. Because once you become a Spinster, there's no turning back...

I liked the book overall, but I felt like the main character found too many people on her side, if that makes sense. Every person she comes across (save for her adversaries) is on her side. It felt too… convenient? Writing was decent, pacing good, audiobook read well. Not too many complaints, but I‘m not sure if I‘ll pick up book two. #doublespin for this month. @TheAromaofBooks

radesilets I switched my first and second books. I made the decision if book one was a spin or double, I‘d flip my list as White Space was my spin for last month and I am still slogging through it (half done). Since #1 was indeed chosen, I traded 1 and 2 so I‘d have a different spin this month. (In case anyone is keeping track) 10mo
TheAromaofBooks Great progress!! And your switch makes total sense - I don't track the specific titles (we run on a loose honor system for BookSpin haha) but I'm always interested to hear how people are making it work!! 10mo

I do like this first book, it has a good beginning and the essence of the original story is quite interesting.

Decided to give this book a try

brilliantglow I really enjoyed this series 2y
Reign_1982 @brilliantglow really? I'm glad someone else has read this book.. 2y
brilliantglow Yes! It doesn't seem to be very popular but I read the whole series back in 2015. And I've held onto them since despite the books getting a cover change and the first book not matching the second or third books. Usually I gift books I've read that have received midseries cover changes to friends 2y

I decided this morning that my goal for #24B4Monday would be to reach 12 hours of reading. Add an hour onto the stopwatch time to account for the time I spent reading in the office and the time I forgot to start the stopwatch while listening to an audiobook, and you‘ll see I‘m nearly there! I think I can read another 12 minutes before bed. I finished 3 books and got more than halfway through Crewel, so I consider this a successful readathon. Yay!

BeansPage Very nice! Well done 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 4y

The baby fell asleep in the car seat on the way home from Grandma‘s. I‘ve selflessly volunteered to sit in the car and wait for him to wake up. #24B4Monday

Readingismyescape Perfect way to sneak in a little mire reading. 📖 👍🏻 4y

I‘m mostly enjoying this book—I like Adelice and I‘m really intrigued by the world and how the magic works. But blech, I‘m so sick of this YA trope of the Hot Mysterious Boy Who Knows Things and Won‘t Tell. #24B4Monday

Baby is asleep, husband is out. Time to curl up in the big comfy chair with a cup of tea and a YA dystopia. #24B4Monday

Kind of a hokey premise. A mass delusion type thing.
