I have awesome news for you! Remember when I told you about the Friday the Thirteeners blog, where YA authors that have their debut in 2013 take truths and dares? I told you about three of their books I can't wait to read. And guess what? They just revealed the cover for one of those three!
And it is... breathtaking! I loved the titel, I loved the summary, and I was sure that I would read the book, but after seeing that cover I cannot wait for the book! I really have no words for that one. It is just amazing :D
Yes, I am talking about Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke. Remember what I said about it earlier?
Seriously, a dark and mysterious boy the girl falls in love with? My YA-heart is beating faster. The devil is in town? Sounds perfect for me. And the boy is called River! That's a uncommon but beautiful name there.I have a lot to add to that paragraph now. Why I love the cover? It evokes a great dark atmosphere, the setting is just magical with the water and the cliffs. The title looks great with the read focus on Devil and the blue. And I think it is really great that they did not put the boy and girl in the middle of the picture. This way it is still focused on them but has a more mysterious touch to it. Does that make any sense to you at all?
And here is the new summary for the book:
"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."
Gothic horror? I haven't read a good gothic book in a while, that is just one more point on the pro list for this one. I seriously cannot wait for the release!
The cover and the summary are taken from the offivial Friday The Thirteeners blog. Head over there to find out more about this book and a lot more amazing stories! And be sure to mark the 15th august 2013 for Devil will finally hit the shelves on that day!
