Waiting on Wednesday-Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where we show off books that we want to read but have not been published yet. 

Title:  Between the Devil and the  Deep Blue Sea
Author: April Genevieve Tucholke
Release Date: 15 August 2013, published by Dial.
Link to / Summary from Goodreads: 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.

Why I want it: Gothic romance. Scary gothic romance. Featuring the Devil. And the sea. And the summary makes me think of  two songs by my favourite band, Birdeatsbaby (What the Water Gave Me and Tastes Like Sympathy). And gorgeous cover.

What are YOU waiting on this week?


  1. I really wonder though if its going to be the Devil. I can't wait to get my hands on this one also, quite literally foaming at the mouth for it!

  2. We featured the same there. Can't wait to meet this Devil! ^^
