Coming Attraction: Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea

It had been awhile since I'd gone through and marked books as to-read on Goodreads, so there were a lot of things I'd noticed were missing from my shelves. I figured, as long as I was going to go on a book-marking spree, I might as well dig through and see what all is coming out, right?And y'all - there is a lot of really cool stuff coming out. (See, this is why I hadn't gone through and marked in awhile. I knew it was going to make me WANT ALL TEH THINGS.)
So I hope you guys don't mind, but I may be inundating you with Coming Attractions over the next couple weeks... =)
First up, though, is one that just recently had its cover revealed, and I have to say, I am a fan.
(Also, it is not to be confused with this book of the same name...)
(Also-also: I'm really loving this trend of gothic horror in the upcoming crop of releases. Here's to hoping it's done well...)

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke
Expected publication: August 2013 by Dial/Penguin
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.
