Waiting on Wednesday (96)

WoW is hosted by Breaking the Spine

August 15th 2013 (Dial)

"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."

August 2013? That is way too far away.


I'm intrigued by the summary (I hope there's not going to be instalove, but it sounds like there might be), and I really like the cover. Usually huge font drives me crazy, but this cover works for me. It's very eerie and dramatic. 

What are you waiting on?
