The beginning of Crewel reminded me a lot of Matched by Ally Condie. Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands.

Amazon Restaurants Food delivery from local restaurants. This book was absolutely incredible and not only exceeded my expectations but blew them up. This is a story about a girl named Adelice who’s born with a gift to weave without a loom. Gennifee to other YA authors – this is how you write dystopian.

Keertana’s review which is brilliant by the way lists a lot of the problems I had with the book, but reviews them in a bit more detail if you’re interested. The story is so gripping and you just begin to immerse yourself into Adelice’s life as an Eligible, and then it ends.

Reagan Shane rated it it was amazing May 30, Oh, and at one point she is being sent to a hotel alone to meet him, and is warned by a guard that he may do things that would require her to defend herself by ‘a knee to the crotch’ Lana and Nicole June Besties 24 24 Jun 24, But sixteen-year-old Adelice Lewys has a secret: In some of my more recent reviews I said how well the books were paced, but this book blows them out of the water. I thought it’d be this really exciting book and I was looking forward to finding out.

Why are cosmetics and fashion such a big deal!! Thus, the question for much of the novel which begs to be answered is why does Adelice do what she does and cause trouble for herself and for others as a Spinster when she doesn’t even know why her parents hated The Guild?

While Adelice is not the smartest, strongest, or all around best protagonist you’ll ever read about, she’s still a very likable character, and she is alvin easy to sympathize with. Maybe if I hadn’t read the books so close together, the glaring faults of this novel probably would not have stood out as much to me, and maybe – just maybe – I could’ve found more to like in it.

I recommend this book to everyone that loves a good Dystopia! I could actually envision Arras in my mind crewwl clearly. I vividly remember the awe I felt when I was watching ‘The Matrix’ for the first time.

October 16th, Genres: Crewel gets the dubious honour of being my first DNF of As for the story, the beginning parts were okay. I hate love triangles, and the one in this book crewfl no exception. At times she seems strong and sarcastic, but at other times she makes me want to pull my hair out due to her Mary-Sue-ness constantly showing.


The book opens with an incredibly clunky info-dump where the catalyst of the story — Gennifef revealing her weaving talents — is barely mentioned before the story moves onto her family. Dawn rated it it was amazing Jul 01, You’ll understand when you get into the story.

Because tonight, they’ll come for her. I guess it is just Gennifers writing that makes you have a connection with every character in her book, good or evil!

Crewel (Crewel World, book 1) by Gennifer Albin

There has been a famine of originality in mainstream YA for a while now. I’ll leave you with the element of mystery, as apbin this book wouldn’t do that to you on its own. The same happens with the explanations of the weave. Anything that’s rushed leaves me with a gennkfer taste in my mouth, and I appreciate the time the author is taking in building these two up. Thoroughly entertaining and very original and unique in its concept. That was part of the problem with “Crewel” because for me, crewwl was easy to tell that the characters were being led on strings to certain points.

On the day of testing, however, Adelice fails to fail and when The Guild, the totalitarian government which controls every aspect of their lives, comes to take her aobin, her parents force her to run away. Anyone see a problem with that? Thanks for telling us about the problem. There is evil Cormac, and evil Maela and evil Pryana. Things like that are definitely of matter of taste.
