This week, I am enamored by the following title:
Title: Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea
Author: April Genevieve Tucholke
Release Day: August 15th, 2013
Summary: (goodreads) 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.
My Thoughts: With such a poetic title, this is one novel that I can fangirl over with class and elegance. An unconventional love story, and such a sinister synopsis make me want to own this book as soon as is possible. I cannot tell you how wonderful this sounds to me and how I so hope that it will deliver all the direct and indirect promises I imagine are being delivered in that powerful summary.
