"Waiting On" Wednesday: Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke
Release Date: August 15, 2013
Publisher: Dial
Series: Between
Amazon | B&N | The Book Depository | IndieBound

You stop fearing the devil when you're holding his hand.

Nothing much exciting rolls through Violet White's sleepy, seaside town…until River West comes along. River rents the guesthouse behind Violet’s crumbling estate, and as eerie, grim things start to happen, Violet begins to wonder about the boy living in her backyard. Is River just a crooked-smiling liar with pretty eyes and a mysterious past? Or could he be something more?

Violet's grandmother always warned her about the Devil, but she never said he could be a dark-haired boy who takes naps in the sun, who likes coffee, who kisses you in a cemetery…who makes you want to kiss back. Violet’s already so knee-deep in love, she can’t see straight. And that's just how River likes it.

Blending faded decadence and the thrilling dread of gothic horror, April Genevieve Tucholke weaves a dreamy, twisting contemporary romance, as gorgeously told as it is terrifying—a debut to watch.

I didn't even need to finished reading the synopsis for this book to know that I wanted it. The first line drew me in right away and I pre-ordered it as soon as it was possible. The image and typography they use for the cover is gorgeous. Since the release is the day before my birthday, it will be kind of a gift to myself :-)

If you're counting down the days until the release of Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, you can grab a countdown widget for it here.

  11. That cover is gorgeous! And I've actually seen this book awhile ago but dismissed it because I thought it was a total horror book. I mean common, dark scary book cover, and a boy compared to the Devil? But, for some reason, after re-reading the synopsis here...it made me be interested in it and I just added it to my goodreads! Thanks for helping me put this book back in my TBR pile and thanks for stopping by! :) Just followed you on GFC.
