TEN, by Gretchen McNeil, is one of the books I had the privilege of reading in pre-ARC form! I don't normally "do" scary books, but I really loved this one. It's fast paced, with twists and turns, romantic tension ... and of course crazy horror elements that kept me cowering under my covers at night. Oh, who am I kidding - I totally read it during the day!

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?
