In this original, mature short, discover the secret that turned Maela from ambitious girl to vindictive Spinster. The room was spare, as was his typical style. Some might consider it too cold with the black marble tiles veined with silver and the austere gray walls, but his bed was warm. External image. I love how colorful this novel cover is. The swirls are fantastic and the colors such as light green and reddish pink are amazing. Whoever did this cover art is definitely someone who put a lot of effort into this.
Everything about it is gorgeous! To check out Crewel , click here. For more Judge a Book by Its Cover, check back next week, the 17th. And if you want to suggest a book cover, please go to my ask box. Thanks so much! In this weekly feature, I spotlight some young adult books that will be coming out in the next week.
Gifted with the ability to weave time with matter, sixteen-year-old Adelice Lewys is 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.
And one hour to escape. What she finds out will change her world forever…. Nothing ever came between sisters Alice and Charlie. Their family falling apart never would. Elysia is created in a laboratory, born as a sixteen-year-old girl, an empty vessel with no life experience to draw from. She is a Beta, an experimental model of a teenage clone. She was replicated from another teenage girl, who had to die in order for Elysia to exist.
Everything about Demesne is bioengineered for perfection. But for what, exactly? As rage, terror, and desire threaten to overwhelm her, Elysia must find the will to survive. Rachel has always idolized her older brother Micah. And she almost believes it. She should have listened when Micah tried to confide in her. And she only feels more guilt when she receives an anonymous note telling her that Micah is nearby and in danger.
Along the way, Rachel will be forced to confront her own dark secrets, her growing attraction to Tyler… and the possibility that Micah may never come home. Amelia is used to being upstaged by her charismatic younger sister, Charly. Because Charly is also hiding a terrible secret, and the truth just might tear them apart forever. Check out my review for the first book, Get Well Soon. Anna Bloom has spent the last three weeks in a mental hospital dealing with her depression, conspiring with her fellow inmates, and tripping through first love.
Is she too crazy to fit in with her normal friends? Is she too normal to fit in with her mental hospital friends? Living in the aftermath of the Event means that seeing the dead is now a part of life, but Veronica wishes that the ghosts would just move on.
When Veronica and her friend, Kirk, decide to investigate why, they stumble upon a more sinister plot than they ever could have imagined. Veronica seems like the perfect host. External image Crewel by Gennifer Albin. At her aptitude test Adelice slips up and shows talent for weaving, ruining years of conditioning to be over looked.
The Guild storms her home and takes her away to serve the country. To keep her complacent the Guild holds her sister as leverage, though Amie no longer remembers being her sister. Like so many before her Amie has been rewoven to keep the peace in Arras.
The Spinsters weaving consists of transporting objects from one place to another, keeping a look out for dissent and bad behavior; to be either rewoven or ripped, controlling weather and following what ever order they are given. The world of Arras was interesting but not explored as much as I would have liked.
It was slow goings through most of the book. There was an attempt at a love triangle [which I hate] but it was weak, Adelice only really liked one of the two. I find it annoying when stories take common place names and spell them unconventionally and think it makes so much of a difference. I do hope to find out about the whole hourglass thing too. Catching on, he propels his body around so that he is falling backward, facing us, and watching my progress.
And then something amazing happens. Another NaNoWriMo pep talk, shared with all. When the lovely folks at the Office of Letters and Light asked me to write a pep talk, they pointed to me to the archive of past pep talkers for inspiration.
What I found was the exact opposite. The archive held a list of talks from much more intelligent, much wittier, and most disconcertingly, much more writerly authors than I.
I agonized for a few days over my predicament. Not only had I agreed to write a pep talk, but I suffer from a particularly strong case of tenacity.
Still, any way I cut it, I was the newbie. The rookie in a line-up of veteran writers with awards and bestsellers and huge book deals under their belts. And then it hit me — as truth often will. There is one fundamental thing I have in common with these rock stars of the writing world.
And by November 30, hopefully all of you will. I wrote a book. I put butt in chair and got from beginning to end. How many times as a writer have you gotten so caught up in the next step of the writing process that you lose sight of the real finish-line: getting to the end?
Are you suffering from a case of go-back-and-fix-it, or worse, page-perfectionitis? Stop worrying about editing or finding the perfect word, and just get to the end. I lost sight of that when I opened the link to those pep talks. I am a writer. I write books. In fact, say it right now. Even better, grab a sticky note, write it down, and post it next to your computer.
Own it. Write it down. Make it happen. Save that sticky note for future use when you cross that 50K finish line. The real secret is that anyone can write a book. No dues to pay. Writing is for everyone, and this is your chance to scrawl your name across the page. The NaNoWriMo community is full of people who understand that sometimes characters talk to you at inopportune times.
