Book Review: Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke

“Addictive!”

18693883

After reading and loving Wink Poppy Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholke I wanted to read everything she wrote. I love her writing style and her stories and Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea was a must read.

First of all, I couldn’t stop reading it. It has mystery, unpredictable twist, romance, strong female lead, swoony guy with long brown hair and sun-tanned skin, and Narnia references (again!). Everything I love! Every time I tried to stop reading I had to pick it up again, even at night I couldn’t sleep. I slept a few minutes and woke up to keep reading until I finish it in almost a day.

I loved the main character, Violet, she felt so real and I related a lot to her. I think I love every character in this book, even the bad guy who totally reminded me of Killgrave from Jessica Jones.

This book reminded me a bit of I’ll Give You The Sun, because the main character, Violet, has a painter twin brother and she has a weird obsession with her dead grandmother. Add a spark of Mara Dyer’s paranormality and romance and you’ll get and idea of what this book is. I love Tucholke’s writing style. She makes me want to live in her worlds and live her stories.

The ending was bittersweet but satisfying. I loved it so much. You must read it because my words are nothing. I can talk about this book the whole day.

5/5 stars!

I’m going to read the sequel right now!
