RTW - One That Got Away

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

This week: 
What book is your 'one that got away?' (What book have you always been dying to read but still haven't yet?)

Considering that my to-read shelf on GR is rapidly approaching 500 (488 right now), this could be a long list. 

The first books to pop into my head are the entire trilogy of Demon's Lexicon, Demon's Covenant and Demon's Surrender.  I own Lexicon and Covenant and I've read the former, but ever since I decided to just read the entire trilogy together, I haven't been able to find Surrender in a bookstore.

There's Eona by Alison Goodman, which I've been wanting to read ever since I devoured Eon years ago in high school. There's Between Shades of Grey by Ruta Sepetys, which I see glowing reviews for every time I turn around but have yet to get my hands on.

Other books that have been on my list for too long: Like Mandarin by Kirsten Hubbard, Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers, The Iron King by Julie Kagawa, Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton, Huntress by Malindo Lo, and Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins.
