Waiting On Wednesday: Ten by Gretchen McNeil

 Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly Meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. It is an opportunity for us to show books we can't wait to get our hands on.

This week, I'm waiting for:


Ten by Gretchen McNeil
Release Date: September 18th, 2012
Publisher: Balzar + Bray


And their doom comes swiftly.

It was supposed to be the weekend of their lives—an exclusive house party on Henry Island. Best friends Meg and Minnie each have their reasons for being there (which involve T.J., the school’s most eligible bachelor) and look forward to three glorious days of boys, booze and fun-filled luxury.

But what they expect is definitely not what they get, and what starts out as fun turns dark and twisted after the discovery of a DVD with a sinister message: Vengeance is mine.

Suddenly people are dying, and with a storm raging, the teens are cut off the from the outside world. No electricity, no phones, no internet, and a ferry that isn’t scheduled to return for two days. As the deaths become more violent and the teens turn on each other, can Meg find the killer before more people die? Or is the killer closer to her than she could ever imagine?


This simply sounds amazingly good! I haven't read Gretchen McNEil's first book yet, but this one is definitely on my TBR list!

What book are you waiting for this week?

    1. Thanks for stopping by. I haven't really read many books set on islands, tbh. It's the creepiness that makes me want to read it!

  6. Sounds very similar to a classic horror film. Or The Cabin in the Woods which I watched recently. Now that is a wierd movie. Looks interesting if not creepy.

    Thank you for visiting my WoW.

  7. I actually really didn't like her first book, but I'm super excited about this one anyway, because I'm pretty sure it's like a teenage remake of Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None (originally titled Ten Little Indians).

  23. Oh yeah I'm definitely dying to read this one, too. I've read And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie and while I didn't love that, I liked it. This reminds me of that and I'm hoping it will be even better without the kind of formal feel ATTWN had. Nice pick :)

    1. I haven't read And Then There Were None, but I woudl lvoe to see someone compare both books. I'm curious to see if the story would be similar.

  24. I am SO excited for this one! Sounds quite creepy, and if it was a movie I would never watch it. But a book? Definitely a need-to-read! Great pick, and thanks for stopping by today =)

    1. I probably would only watch the movie only if I was with some friends, or in the morning so I would have ALL day to forget about the creepiness.

  38. I remember reading the synopsis for TEN a while back, before its cover reveal. Sounds seriously freaky. Sometimes these kinds of books are such a nice change from...less scary books. :P
