Crewel by Gennifer Albin (Farrar, Straus, & Giroux Books for Young Readers, 2012) has been sitting on my shelf ever since I attended Gennifer's launch at Rainy Day Books in Kansas City. Crewel is Gennifer's debut novel and the first in a trilogy about young women who are honored (forced?) to weave the very fabric of reality in a fantastical world.
“The halls of Coventry are dark and twisted places readers will want to visit." —The New York Times Book Review
“Captivating and intense, the right balance of mystery, romance, and drama.” —Publishers Weekly
“The next big dystopian blockbuster.” —Booklist
I know--right? Read an excerpt of Crewel here and then read the rest. So I won't feel lonely.
That's right: I've committed to reading all the books on my TBR Shelf this year--and blogging them! Click here to read the reviews I've posted so far.
