Waiting on Wednesday - 120

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine for readers and bloggers to see what books are going to be published.

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke

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. (from GoodReads)

This sounds very romantic and maybe a little creepy. Plus, it's a 2013 YA debut, which is always fun. Look for Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea on August 20, 2013.

I just saw this for the first time earlier this week. It sounds wonderful.
I see that you are reading Tales... by Dickens. It is on my TBR. I am looking forward to your thoughts.

I'm super excited for this one as well! My favorite covers tend to be pretty dresses but this one is so extraordinary that I'm making an exception and including it.
