TOP TEN TUESDAY: Most Recent Additions to My TBR List

The Rooster released its Tournament of Books list in late December which provides me with the topic this week - Most Recent Additions to My TBR List. The tournament will take place in March, coinciding with basketball March Madness. Books and basketball - how perfect for me!

Last year I had read a number of the books and found following the tournament much more fun. I checked out the  new list and then cross-checked with my library and found quite a few that are relatively easy to get my hands on. What I like about this list is it gives me a somewhat vetted list of recent releases that I can try to read. There are so many new books released each year and I generally fall back on my mystery series' books so this keeps me current. And sometimes I find a real gem.
