Book Mash [11]

A feature on Nawanda Files that is math...for books, where we mash up new and old releases with books, tv and movies. What equals our favorite reads? Find out in the simple equation below. (Always posted by Becca.)


Combine an island where the killer may just be your very best friend (or someone you know), a horror story where one by one someone is picked off, and a concept where not everyone is who they seem (and there's lots of twists and unexpected turns!)

What do you get?



Ten
by Gretchen McNeil
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Release Date: September 28th, 2012
Read Our Review 

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 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?


So this book rocks. It's actually the most like Harper's Island and I just loved that show. It's really fun to figure who the killer is when you know it's someone among your group of friends. Also, has anyone watched Siberia yet? That show is crazy! And it does remind me of Ten in a lot of ways -- especially the idea that these people are trapped in a certain location and deaths occur.

Have you read Ten? Do you agree with the Mash?


This feature will replace Like This, Try This and usually be posted on Fridays. Feel free to create a Book Mash of your own!

  2. I've been wanting to read this one for so long, like even way before it was released, but I never got around to it for some reason. I'm going to check right now to see if the library has it!

  6. I love such concepts because they are super suspenseful and oh-so-thrilling however, I haven't yet read a YA book depicting such a storyline. *face palms self* However, the one similar island book I really, really want to read is Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas and gah, I need it now!

    Love the feature, Becca! =D
