Thursday Thoughts: TBR Thursday

Welcome to TBR Thursday, hosted by Kimberly Faye Reads. This is a straightforward exercise:  share a book that's been lingering on your TBR shelf for a while . . . and today I'll be participating for the very first time.

Today's pick has been on my Nook since its publication in May, 2014.  In fact, I pre-ordered it, something I have only done a handful of times. I'm talking about The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon.

The Bone Season 

This debut novel, first in a planned series of seven books, received full-court press, beginning with the lead-up to publication.  Positive early reviews compared its caliber to the works of George Orwell and J.R.R. Tolkien.  It was even the inaugural choice of The Today Show Book Club.  The film rights have since been purchased by 20th Century Fox, and the second book in the series, The Mime Order, was released on January 26th of this year.  Obviously, I totally dropped the ball on this one.  It kind of got lost in the shuffle.  Rediscovering this book on my Nook has renewed my interest, and has me wanting to work it into one of my sooner piles.

What do you think?  
. . . Have you read it?  
. . . Should I move it to the top of my TBR pile?
