|Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted @ Breaking the Spine wherein we share what books we are eagerly waiting for.|
Another Wednesday has come and of course that means cupcakes! Oh wait, it doesn't. But for some reason Wednesdays look like cupcakes to me. I don't know why though. It might be the long "a" at the end.
My favorite cupcake though is red velvet. The cream cheese frosting is just to die for. Plus, its redness is so rich and deep and pretty and eye-catching! According to science, red is the most striking color there is because of details that I am too lazy to go into. (You can just click the link if you're feeling up to it though!)
You know what else makes me think of red velvet cupcakes? This book:
BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA
BY APRIL GENEVIEVE TUCHOLKE
RELEASE DATE: August 20, 2013
Summary from 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.
Okay, so the story isn't as sweet sounding as a red velvet cupcake. But the colors! Definitely red velvet cupcake... with a creepy cliff as a background. Kidding aside, I don't usually dive into horror books but the mystery of it all is pulling me... to the dark side. So yes, I am eagerly waiting for this one.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.
