Crewel by Gennifer Albin, 4 Stars

11556960Ahhh, I love when I finally read a book that I’ve been putting off and it turns out to be awesome. I don’t know why, but I was kind of scared of this book. I was sure it would end up to be super lame. Nope, it was super awesome.

Albin builds a great dystopian world that feels kind of like home, but isn’t. Right away you know things are bad and they’re just going to get worse. The MC is taken off to become a spinster, which sounds lame but is actually the women who keep this world twirling, but turns out there is a lot of corruption in this world. I was surprised, were you surprised?

It had moments of The Selection, moments of The Hunger Games, and moments of most other books in that vein, but it brought it all together in a new fun way that wasn’t too heavy on the love triangle. I’ll give an automatic five star review to the next dystopian book I read WITHOUT the mandatory love triangle.

Really looking forward to seeing where the next one goes!
