Top Ten Tuesday: Top 10 2014 Releases That I Meant to Read, But Didn't Get To

Top Ten Tuesday is sponsored by The Broke and The Bookish.  So many books on my TBR list, and then new books pop up, so it seems this happens every year, I miss out on books I really wanted to read, this topic for Top 10 was a perfect one!  As I always do I will post them in no particular order.

1.  The Strange Maid (The United States of Asgard #2) by Tessa Gratton

I started this right before BEA, but then didn't quite get into it with how busy I was during BEA, so now I really need to pick it up and read it.

2.  Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King
This is one that I'd really been looking forward to.  My mom bought it for her Nook, and so she didn't have a hard copy to pass on to me when she was done.  So I haven't read it yet.  I do need to go ahead and buy a hard copy though, as we own almost every other one of his books. The sad thing is that I have read the book he published a few months after this one, Revival.

3.  Talon by Julie Kagawa
This was one I had wanted to get so bad at BEA, but didn't get a copy of. Then, I just never got around to picking up a copy to read.

4.  Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld
I was lucky enough to get a copy of this at BEA, even though I didn't get to see the author in person.  But I didn't quite get around to reading it.  It is a goal for my TBR Pile Challenge this year.

5.  The Infinite Sea (The Fifth Wave #2) by Rick Yancey
I was late getting around to reading the first one, but figured I'd be able to pick the 2nd one up almost right after and read on.  I didn't do it.

6.  Rooms by Lauren Oliver
This is another book I really wanted to get at BEA, but missed out on several chances to get it.

7.  Fiendish  by Brenna Yovanoff
My e-galley of it expired before I could get to it. Then I bought it in time to go see the author in November, and still haven't had time to fit it in!

8.  Sinner (The Wolves of Mercy Falls #4) by Maggie Stiefvater
I got this one at BEA, but ended up choosing to read Blue Lily, Lily Blue before I picked this up. So it is still sitting on my shelf.  Although actually I ordered one online that had a special cover that Maggie had drawn herself.

9.  Torn Away by Jennifer Brown
I have enjoyed other books by this author and I got an e-galley of this, but never got it read.

10.  Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
I got an ARC of this at the beginning of the year, and then somehow never got around to picking it up.  I've got to get to it soon!

So there are many more I need to get to that I missed last year.  How about you, what books did you not get read in 2014?
