My TBR List (October)

Thanks to the lovely Michelle @ Because Reading for hosting! Each month we pick 3 books and get blog readers to pick which book we read. Then on the last Saturday of the month (the 26th this month!) the review gets posted. 

So this month's theme is going to be Netgalley books that have been sat on my TBR list for far far too long (as in to the point they are actually sorted on my kindle, and its a long time since I did this!) 

Title: Dollhouse
Series: Dark Carousel (#1) 
Author: Anya Allyn 
From: Netgalley 
Average Star Rating: (Goodreads) 3.59
Links: Goodreads - Amazon 
Synopsis (Goodreads): A spine-tingling Gothic Thriller
An abandoned mansion, deep in the woods. A dollhouse, filled with life-sized toys. A doorway into other realms. And girls who keep disappearing...
When Cassie’s best friend, Aisha, vanishes during a school hike, Cassie sets off with Aisha's boyfriend and their friend Lacey, determined to find her. Instead, the three teens fall into a carefully-laid trap—deep into the surreal nightmare and dark secrets of the Dollhouse.
Now, Cassie must uncover the mysteries of the Dollhouse and her own connection to it-- before it's too late.
With the horror and otherworldliness of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and the gothic romance of A Great and Terrible Beauty, Dollhouse is a tantalizing start to The Dark Carousel series.

Title: On Her Watch
Series: Don't Tell (#2)
Author: Rie Warren 
From: Netgalley 
Average Star Rating: (Goodreads) 3.77
Links: Goodreads - Amazon 
Synopsis (Goodreads): The year is 2071 and all hell has broken loose. As the government tries to control the territories that were once the United States, an armed rebellion erupts . . . 
AWOL from her military post, Lieutenant Liz Grant will do anything for the rebels she now calls friends. Her latest mission: return to the Beta Corps army and obtain classified information that could turn the battle in the revolutionaries' favor. There's only one problem: Commander Linc Cutler.
Strong, coldly handsome, and always in control, Linc is perplexed by the beautiful soldier brought in for questioning. He doesn't know if he believes her explanation for why she went missing. He only knows his intense sexual desire for her cannot be denied.

Title: The May Bride
Author: Suzannah Dunn
From: Netgalley
Average Star Rating: (Goodreads) 3.21
Synopsis (Goodreads): Jane Seymour is a shy, dutiful fifteen-year-old when her eldest brother, Edward, brings his bride home to Wolf Hall. Katherine Filliol is the perfect match for Edward, as well as being a breath of fresh air for the Seymour family, and Jane is captivated by the older girl.
Only two years later, however, the family is torn apart by a dreadful allegation—that Katherine has had an affair with the Seymour patriarch. The repercussions for all the Seymours are incalculable, not least for Katherine herself. When Jane is sent away to serve Katharine of Aragon, she is forced to witness another wife being put aside, with terrible consequences.
Changed forever by what happened to Katherine Filliol, Jane comes to understand that, in a world where power is held entirely by men, there is a way in which she can still hold true to herself.
