Waiting On: Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea (Between, #1) by April Genevieve Tucholke

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea
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. [goodreads]

I am aware that this book does not come out for a long while, but it's been on my radar for a bit and I thought it was time to be put on yours, if it hasn't been already. Seaside town. Eerie things happening. A boy with a crooked smile and pretty eyes (that's not quite next door, but even closer than that!). Mysterious. KISSING. Gothic horror. Contemporary romance. YES PLEASE! I am so incredibly intrigued by this novel.

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