Waiting on Wednesday: Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea
Author: April Genevieve Tucholke
Publisher: Dial
Expected Publication: August 15, 2013

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.

My Thoughts:
I love the idea of this novel. Boys that are tall, dark, handsome, and just a little bit evil are always my favorite! I can already tell I am going to swoon for River. The only downfall is that this doesn't come out until August which is oh so far away! 


  1. The cover is so perfect! But I've had it on my TBR list since before the cover was even out. Love things involving the devil! Weird but true. He usually makes for an interesting character.
