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

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week’s can’t wait to read selection is
Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke.
Publication Date: August 15th 2013

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea
- Penguin / Dial
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.
Synopsis from

This last sentence sounds eerie. I imagine River with a wicked grin and a mischievous glint in his pretty eyes. But what do I expect from the Devil himself? An ulterior motive - definitely! Moreover, I expect some chills and an exceptional love story. What is so special about Violet that the Devil himself singled her out for his attention? And can you go back from loving the Devil?
I have a thing for bad boys in general and since reading books about blood-dripping ghosts and Poe-inspired parallel worlds, the more sinister storylines fascinate me even more. Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea fits right in with my current reading mood, but maybe it is safer to read this book with sunshine pouring in the window. ;)

Which books are you (im)patiently waiting on this Wednesday? Tell us in the comments!

This is on my MUST read list for this year. I was lucky enough to pick up an ARC of this, I'm just holding off until closer to pub date to read it, but it's hard to wait!
