Oh man. I was so excited to read this because I loved Agatha Christie‘s “And Then There Were None”. I was not disappointed. This book got increasingly more tense and creepy as it progressed which made me read it even faster. I loved it and really appreciate the message it includes related to the teenagers involved. I won‘t spoil it for you😉

Ten teens are invited to an exclusive party at the island home of a popular classmate. Before long, they realize that something sinister is happening.

There‘s a striking similarity to Ten Little Indians by Agatha Christie.

”As the sound of the ferry‘s engines faded into the distance, Meg felt suddenly isolated. Other than the dull rumble of water and wind, she couldn‘t hear a thing, and there were no signs of life on the distant beach. Meg #shivered. They were alone in the middle of nowhere, their only contact with the outside world retreating into the night.”

7/10 good book! The first half was a bit slow and difficult get through but I could tell it was going to get good so I pushed through. And let me say, when it got good, it got GOOD. It was really intense and interesting and I was flipping through pages really fast and couldn‘t take my eyes off until the end! It would make me think I figured everything out just to turn around and have a HUGE plot twist! I highly recommend this book!!

This wasn't the best YA murder mystery that I've read lately, but I did enjoy it. There was some witty dialogue and some good ideas and plot twists. It was fast paced and a quick, good read. I did guess the killer - the book is a bit of an homage to a very famous book written by one of my favorite mystery authors. I've been waiting to see this plot twist used again and wasn't disappointed!

A new twist on an Agatha Christie classic. It had me on the edge of my seat until the very end. I couldn‘t put this book down, it had me wondering what was going to happen next. It had my heart racing and guessing what will happen next to them. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #Ten #GretchenMcNeil #funkopop #popvinyl #FreddyFunko #NormanBates #book #books #read #bookrecommendation #bookrecommendations #bookreport #bookreview #YoungAdult #Mystery #Horror #YA 💚💚💚💚💚

I really liked this book. Until the end.
I figured out the killer early on, but that did not take away from my enjoyment. It was a fun cross between I Know What You Did Last Summer and And Then Were None.
I just wish it had gone with a more Christie-esque ending. It unfortunately finished with a nice, neat, happy ending all wrapped up on a bow. Blah. Too bad.

Starting a new book on my kindle. I haven't done that in a while.
I love And Then There Were None, so I'm curious about this so of retelling.

RainyDayReading I love And Then There Were None too! An Unwanted Guest by Shari LaPena is also sort of a retelling of it. It wasn‘t as good as Agatha (granted it‘s not easy) but it was engrossing! There‘s also Ten Dead Comedians which is basically ATTWN but with comedians instead. 14mo

When you have the time and a page-turner, it is such a battery recharge to finish a book in one day!

It sort of feels weird, YA or not, for there to be a retelling of Agatha Christie‘s And Then There Were None to me, but even so I enjoyed this. I didn‘t spend a lot of time comparing the two plot wise so that probably helped me enjoy this one.

Texreader Yes! It is fun to finish in a day. Don‘t remember the last time I did. 1y
JaclynW This is one of my daughter's favorite books. I haven't read it yet. But I've read And Then There Were None. I love finishing up a book in one day! Yay! What a feeling! 1y

I am liking this pick as my first book for Spooktober! The premise is loosely based on Christie's "And Then There Were None" but with a YA and modern spin!

⭐️⭐️⭐️ 3/5 stars
According to the Amazon page, this book was inspired by Agatha Christie‘s And Then There Were None. I never read that book though I probably should.
I didn‘t like most of the characters, but the book is a fast-paced, easy read that kept me guessing until the very end. I had different suspicions throughout the book, but they were wrong, which is always fun.

This book is a YA retelling of one of my favorite books of all time #AndThenThereWereNone by Agatha Christie. Since I am very familiar with the story, there weren‘t a lot of surprises here, but unlike Christie, the characters here actually weren‘t all guilty of something. I can say, however, that they seemed a lot younger mentally than seniors in high school at least to this old lady. Short story, I knew who dunnit but still wanted to know how/why

I thought that this book would be great as it is based on a Agatha Christie‘s And then there were none. It was not that great for me. I won‘t reread it or read anything else she writes.

This book had me on the edge of my seat the whole story. I was so anxious to see what would happen next that I had to stop my self from reading the next paragraph in advance lol.

I loved the b-rated scary movie feel of the story and there were even parts of the books where I was scared of what was going to happen next and yelling at the characters not to leave the group.

Can't wait to read more from this author.

Started this on the train ride this morning.

It's set in the San Juan Islands, a place I love dearly here in the PNW and vacation at. I probably won't view it the same after this book lol.

Ten teens. Three days. One killer.
Eek!

I followed the BookRiot rabbit hole to this BuzzFeed list of “creepy” books (a relative term, I think) and was happy to see a lot of YA representation. Here it is if you need October reading suggestions: https://www.buzzfeed.com/farrahpenn/creepy-as-hell-ya-novels-you-should-read-if-...

The only one I‘ve read (so far) is Ten, which was fun if predictable. It was recently made into a Lifetime movie which pretty much fits the writing caliber.

It was interesting for the most part. People were dying and they had to figure out which one of them was the killer before more people died. However, these two characters found the motive to kiss and confess feelings when there were multiple dead bodies around them. Disgusting. Then, the killer was revealed and they explained the reasons for the killings. After that, it was cliché and I didn't like the ending. #Ten #GretchenMcNeil #Library #Reader

It has its thrills and does a moderate job at keeping the reader interested, but overall it was lackluster. Definitely a lot of boring aspects to it. Read it if you want, but you won't remember it. I certainly don't.

I've been looking for something to hold my attention after a string of less-than-fabulous false starts with other books. After I got through the first few chapters (lots of characters to introduce and keep straight), I could not put it down. I knew who I thought it was and fell into the author's trap like a lost bunny. Would definitely recommend! Disclaimer: I have not read And Then There Were None which everyone keeps comparing it to.

My review of Ten by Gretchen McNeil. I always set myself up for disappointment with these Agatha Christie adaptations 🙄 https://respekt1111.com/2017/01/24/ten-little-indians-went-out-to-party-book-rev...

DebinHawaii You pup looks dubious about it too! 😆🐶❤️ 3y
Gabypen I agree with absolutely everything. I hated this, and even in my YA phase. The classic is sufficient to read and reread. 3y
respekt1111 @Gabypen Yep. It was just bad. 3y

Very middle-of-the-road. If you have not read Agatha Christie's masterpiece And Then There Were None, then this would probably tip more toward 🤘🏻because it is a very readable mashup of I Know What You Did Last Summer + Scream + ATTWN.

If you HAVE read ATTWN, well...you'll figure out who the murderer is real fast. (There's also some over-use of adjectives that annoyed me on a craft level. Also, the pop culture refs are going to date this fast.)

Any time someone says that, leg it out of there!

(This is turning into "I Know What You Did Last Summer" + "Scream" + "And Then There Were None", heavier on the horror tropes than the Christie)

Who stocked the fridge that the high school creepy deserted island party? (Maybe I'm old, but I've never met a high school kid who drank Stella)

BookishClaire Any chance it's a British book? 3y
RanaElizabeth Haha. My guess is that the author doesn't drink beer, I've noticed that people reference Stella as "nice beer" when they don't actually know anything about beer. Or that could just be my own bias because I had a coworker do that and I haaaaated her 3y
