Waiting on Wednesday (WoW) is a weekly event hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week’s WoW feature is:

Crewel by Gennifer Albin
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR)
Expected publication: October 16, 2012

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. (Goodreads)

I’ve heard AMAZING things about CrewelI absolutely can NOT wait to read this. I was able to snag it from NetGalley but since I’ve been behind on review books, I haven’t been able to start this one yet. I may have to jump into this one ahead of schedule…

What book are you anxiously waiting for this week?

    Oh, I want to read this one, too! It looks awesome, and I love the bit about someone extraordinary wanting (truly) to be ordinary. I don’t think we see that plot device enough. Great pick!
