There are a ton of awesome books releasing the week of August 13th, but the book I am most excited for is BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA by April Genevieve Tucholke. Ever since I first saw the amazing cover, fell in love with the title and head-over-heels madly in love with the description I’ve been dying to read it.

I was not able to get my hands on an eGalley, but as August 15th is just a few weeks away, I don’t have very much longer to wait to meet Violet and River and to check out this awesome book the description calls “a dreamy, twisting contemporary romance.” I love dreamy. I love romance. And I love the fact that this story promises “the thrilling dread of gothic horror.”

I can’t wait to find out just what “eerie” and “grim” things start to happen after River West moves in. I can’t wait to see just what River’s intentions are with Violet. And I’m so unbelievably curious about where this story is headed, as the description is more than a little bit vague on the details.

But I love horror. I love stories that are terrifying. I love reading about bad boys… you can’t get much worse than the Devil. And with the “crumbling estate” and “faded decadence” this setting sounds absolutely amazing.

So while I am very much looking forward to checking out the latest installments of each of the books I listed below and I’m more than a little bit excited about the release of the LOVE STINKS! anthology that I’m in, the book I am most excited for that releases the week of August 13th is BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA. Which is why I had to choose it as the book to spotlight this week.

About the Book

Goodreads description:

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.
