Waiting on Wednesday

     Hey-oh, it's Wednesday! Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, in which bloggers get the chance to share the books we're all twitterpated over. Yes, that's right. Twitterpated. This week my WoW is:

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea
by April Genevieve Tucholke
Publication Date: August 20, 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' see straight. And that's just how River likes it.

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

     Gothic romance? Mystery boy? Sign me up! Plus, look at that cover? It's seriously gorgeous, and perfectly matches the tone set by the blurb. Can't wait!
