Waiting on Wednesday #19

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly post started by Breaking the Spine, to show books that we are patiently waiting for.  

The book we're waiting for this week is:
Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea 
by April Genevieve Tucholke
Expected publication: August 2012 by Dial/Penguin 
Book Description:
Violet’s grandmother had warned her about the Devil, had talked about him often, as though he were a best friend, or an old lover. But she never told Violet that the Devil could be real. She never told Violet that the Devil could be a dark-haired boy in vintage clothes who takes naps in the sun and likes old movies and vigilante justice. 

River West is the seventeen-year old stranger renting the guesthouse behind the rotting mansion on the sea, where Violet lives. And as eerie things start happening in Violet’s town, she begins to wonder about the boy living in her backyard. Is River just a crooked-smiling, coffee-loving liar with rascally eyes and a mysterious past? Or could he be something else? Something...evil? 

Violet’s already so knee-deep in love she can’t see straight.

And that’s just how River likes it.

Why I'm excited for this:
The summary left me wanting for more. It's haunting! It gave me goosebumps. Plus I'll read this book because of the cover alone :)


  1. Ooo this sounds spooky! Don't we always fall for the bad boy, sounds like this one is truly bad :P
