Waiting on Wednesday #3

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm eagerly anticipating....

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.

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.


Why I'm Waiting?
I want it in my hands now! Why? May you ask. Well let's see umm...bad boy! This book grabbed my attention with this line "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". Yeah kisses in a cemetery are always the best ones. Kidding, that actually sounds creepy. It's been a while since I read a gothic horror so that's why I'm waiting to read this book. Wish I had it right now....
