Kristine's TBR #8: September 2014

Well look at that, the first Friday of another month, at least I remembered it this time. 

Last month there wasn't any difference between the piles, but THIS month there is! The inner pile is now taller than the outer pile. Huzzah! 

Books I read in August (all links to Goodreads):
That's five books. Woot! I've read a couple more in the few days between the first of the month and today too, and they're also missing from the picture above, but not included in the list. In case you were studying these things. 

I'm not sure what I will be reading in September, I'm not feeling like reading anything in particular right now, at least not from the piles, but I've picked a couple of books and then I know I'll be reading some stuff off my Kindle as I've got two books that I'm super exited about there right now. We'll see!

September read: Between the Devil and the Blue Sea

Title: Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea
Author: April Genevieve Tucholke
Published 2013
Genre: Fantasy, Paranormal, romance
It is book #1 in the Between series

About the novel:

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 guest house 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.

Why we chose this novel:

Because it is pretty. Because we've heard good things about it. Because the Devil is a fascinating topic for us. Because why not.
