TBR: May 2015

Pinch, punch, it's the first day of the month! Hello May! As enter a new month, I have a new pile of books to get through! I have only chosen three definite books that I want to read, but we'll see how many that I actually get through. This month I have definitely decided to read the following: The Death Cure by James Dashner, Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas (which I actually started the other day) and Divergent by Veronica Roth.

The Death Cure by James Dashner:

It's the end of the line. 
WICKED has taken everything from Thomas: his life, his memories, and now his only friends -- the Gladers. But it's finally over. The trials are complete, after one final test. 
Will anyone survive? 
What WICKED doesn't know is that Thomas remembers far more than they think. And it's enough to prove that he can't believe a word of what they say. 
The truth will be terrifying. 
Thomas beat the Maze. He survived the Scorch. He'll risk anything to save his friends. But the truth might be what ends it all. 
The time for lies is over.

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas:

Meet Celaena Sardothien. 
Beautiful. Deadly. 
Destined for greatness. 
In the dark, filthy salt mines of Endovier, an eighteen-year-old girl is serving a life sentence. She is a trained assassin, the best of her kind, but she made a fatal mistake: she got caught. 
Young Captain Westfall offers her a deal: her freedom in return for one huge sacrifice. Celaena must represent the prince in a to-the-death tournament -- fighting the most gifted thieves and assassins in the land. Live or die, Celaena will be free. Win or lose, she is about to discover her true destiny. But will her assassin's heart be melted?

Divergent by Veronica Roth:

In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue -- Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is -- she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprise everyone, including herself. 
During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine who her friends really are -- and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes exasperating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, Tris also learns that her secret might help her save the ones she loves... or it might destroy her.

What books have you got planned for May?
