{Double Cover Reveal} CREWEL and ALTERED by Gennifer Albin

You may THINK you know what the cover for CREWEL by Gennifer Albin looks like, but you have no idea. None. 


The original cover to CREWEL
And, honestly? It works. I wondered how ALTERED could match the tone of CREWEL. CREWEL is also one of those covers that's not as accessible for people looking to pick it up right off the shelf, though it makes sense after you read it!

The new format stands out more. While some elements are generic, the shape and texture is unique. It's very current and "in," so a lot of teens will pick this up. I would also be able to tell what series this was a part of anytime I saw a new cover even if you blanked out all the important information. It's very distinctive!

The only real issue?

I HATE when my books don't match. I'm so OCD...

I do like the new design, though, so...

Ready to see?

Here's the re-design for the first book in the series, CREWEL:

And here's our first look at the brand-new book in the series, ALTERED:

What are your thoughts? 

I personally think they look very distinctive and interesting. The design is very current, and still fits in with certain aspects of the novel!

I like it. How about you?

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.

Adelice always knew there’d be a price to destroying the Guild, but is she willing to pay it? 

After a daring escape to Earth from Arras, sixteen-year-old Adelice Lewys thought she would finally be in control of her own destiny. She would be free to be true to herself and to her heart—to love Jost, the boy the Guild said she could not have. But Earth is not abandoned, as she’d always been taught it was. It’s inhabited with survivors waging a war against Arras. The world that was supposed to offer a new beginning is still tangled up in the past. 

Now Adelice is being called upon to harness her phenomenal power and break Earth from the grip of the Guild. But even as she uncovers the truth about her parents and her former life, she discovers that nothing on Earth is as it seems either. Everyone has secrets, especially those she loves most. What’s more, those secrets are driving Adelice and Jost away from each other, and Adelice into his brother Erik’s waiting arms. Now torn between two brothers and two worlds, Adelice must decide what—and who--she’s fighting for, before it’s too late.
