Waiting on Wednesday: Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine to showcase upcoming releases that we're impatiently waiting for.
My pick this week:
Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, by April Genevieve Tucholke
Expected release: August 2013
Publisher: Penguin / Dial
Format: no info yet
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.

I know I know... almost a year off, doesn't even have a cover yet, but! The descprition sounds sooo awesome!! Devils or demons. Dark-haired, coffee drinking male lead who just might be a compulsive liar. Rotting mansions. Liars. Mystery and lore. The sea. Intrigues and ploys. Waaaah I need this NOW >_< Can't wait to see the cover!
EDIT: I wrote this on Monday, when there wasn't a cover yet, but now there is! Look!
Ahem. So what do you think? And what are you waiting for this week?
