There was a major cliffhanger at the end of book one, but since book three is out, there will be no waiting around to find out what happens.
Adelice lives in Arras, a world where unmarried women with weaving talents, known as Spinsters, can control time and matter.
There is more to Maela that we don’t know about so we don’t know why she is the way she is so until that union is peeled to it’s core I can’t judge Maela. There are no discussion gennifee on this book yet.
And thus I have mentioned my two most annoying aspects of the story I will not talk about the unlikable characters, the overflow of mean girls or the love-quadruple in this review.
Even though woman were considered second-rate in this world needing a husband, only having secretarial type jobs, no real positions of power, can’t travel without a man, etc. A dystopian world that has a lot of time-weavers? Around the Year i Unfortunately, however, I found it a bit mediocre and disappointing.
What I liked about this book was the originality of the concept, and the whole Spinster-Creweler thing. Oct 05, Erleen Alvarez rated it it was amazing. Most of what Adelice did was learn more confusing stuff about Crewlers and then suddenly she’s getting all primped up and go to parties and meet people See all reviews.
Crewel (Crewel World, book 1) by Gennifer Albin
I grabbed the hardcover edition of Crewel so I’d have it in my huge library of books. When comparing the relevance and representation given to aobin and female characters in relation to their contribution to the novel, what does it say about women? Why would the world go back to this old fashioned practice?
Sep 05, Marie rated it it was amazing Shelves: YA Writers and Re With such a massive amount of Young Adult dystopians on the market we all know why Jul 20, Rusty’s Ghost Engine also known as Sep 25, Susana rated it did not like it Shelves: I have a ridiculously supportive husband who dreams of being included on a book jacket: I don’t respond to review requests sent through Goodreads because I don’t get on here frequently enough. I did buy a copy of this title to gift for someone else though.
Tamaia rated it liked it Mar 20, This is light science-fiction and as such the worldbuilding assumes a degree of reader buy-in that not all will be able to extend. Of course, Adelice ends up kissing them both and torn and all but it’s clear that Jost is the main love interest. We follow Adelice, a young woman who has the power to see and weave on the loom of life – she can create, she can change, she can move, she can kill, and therefore, she’s special.
These book was absolutely incredible and one of my all time favorites.

View all 9 comments. Keeps you intrigued the whole way through. Along abin the flawless world building albni the sheer originality something we as readers, unfortunately, don’t find very often in YAthe characters are all very likable and flawed and, therefore, believableand the Albin’s writing is stunning and gorgeous. I can’t wait to see where their relationship goes and if they are meant to be.
It’s the dream of every young girl to become a Spinster since it is the only way to have any semblance of freedom and privilege.

Share your thoughts with other allbin. But sixteen-year-old Adelice Lewys has a secret: The story is so gripping and you just begin to immerse yourself into Adelice’s life as an Eligible, and then it ends. How amazing would that be. The ending was so good too I have no criticism against this book, instead I can’t wait for the next instalment in this captivating new series.
And, the central plot is born. The difference between this and a lot of the other current Gennifdr dystopian books, in my opinion, is Albin’s imagination. Not once did I find myself bored with any chapter.
