Waiting on Wednesday / WWW Wednesday 3-28-12

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine  to share what book you are highly anticipating the release of.

My pick this week is Crewel by Gennifer Albin. I have had this on my TBR list since last year. It sounds really good, and the cover is awesome!

Overview

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.


Okay, seriously!! How awesome is that cover?! And it sounds like it's going to be amazing right?! October is so far away!!

To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…
• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?


I am currently reading: Masque of The Red Death by Bethany Griffin


I recently finished reading: Pure by Jennifer L Armentrout, (It was so friggin amazing!) Tempest by Julie Cross, (Dude! Get this audio book, it's worth it.) and The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa (Seriously awesome.)


Next I am going to read: Definitely going to get to Goddess Interrupted by Aimee Carter since I didn't get to it last week, and Grave Mercy by Rachel LeFever. I wanted to get to them, but between the midnight showing of The Hunger Games and date night with the hubs last week, I didn't read for like 3 days. :(


What books are you waiting for, reading, or just finished. Leave me a link to your Wednesday post and I will check it out.
