1st book: Crewel by Gennifer Albin

Tuesday, January 22, 2013
Hello again!

Okay, so the book I am currently reading is:

Crewel by Gennifer Albin
Isn't that an awesome cover? Yeah I know the whole "don't judge a book by it's cover" thing, but I am willing to make an exception in this case. So anyway, here is the description of this book from goodreads.com:

Enter a tangled world of secrets and intrigue where a girl is in charge of other’s destinies, but not her own.

Sixteen-year-old Adelice Lewys has always been special. When her parents discover her gift—the ability to weave the very fabric of reality—they train her to hide it. For good reason, they don’t want her to become a Spinster — one of the elite, beautiful, and deadly women who determine what people eat, where they live, how many children they have, and even when they die.

Thrust into the opulent Western Coventry, Adelice will be tried, tested and tempted as she navigates the deadly politics at play behind its walls.  Now caught in a web of lies and forbidden romance, she must unravel the sinister truth behind her own unspeakable power.  Her world is hanging by a thread, and Adelice, alone, can decide to save it — or destroy it.

Does that not sound cool? I'm about 1/4th of the way into this book, and it hasn't really pulled me in so far, but I'm going to keep pushing through. I am a BOOK SOLDIER! :)  

Another thing really bothering me is how complicated the world is. It's all like "Threads, colors, gold, weaving, spinster, blah blah blah," and I'm all like:

But hopefully I will start understanding this book sometime soon. Until then, I wish you farewell (Well not really, I probably will post again before I'm able to understand this but whatever).
