Review of Ten by Gretchen McNeil


I honestly wasn’t a huge fan of this book. The plot and synopsis definitely intrigued me with 10 people being stranded on an island for the weekend and their friends start turning up dead. Sounded really promising to me and as I’ve never read Gretchen McNeil I wanted to read it.

Meg and her best friend Minnie are heading to a party on an island for a weekend that you can only access by boat. A horrible storm starts the first night they’re there and they meet and hang out with 8 other people. Then their friends start dying one by one and everyone’s questioning if it’s someone from their group or is there someone else in the house?

I had no problems with any of the characters (except the girls that wouldn’t stop bitching about everything) but sad to say I had the killer figured out pretty early on and I don’t like books that I can do that in. I want a book that’s going to completely throw me for a loop at the end but sadly this one didn’t do it for me. I understand this is geared towards a teen audience but all the drama and bitching amongst the friends really annoyed me. Like, someone’s killing your friends and you’re more worried about who’s hooking up with who? Definitely a flop of a book for me.
