Jimmy Fallon Announces Return of Fallon Book Club

On Monday’s episode of The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon announced the return of the Fallon Book Club—with a March Madness-inspired twist.

The host has selected sixteen books to compete in an NCAA tournament-style bracket that will crown a single author, whose book will then serve as the next selection for members of the Fallon Book Club.

Viewers visiting www.fallonbookclub.com can vote up to 10 times per round, each of which is timed to the NCAA’s March Madness schedule.

Winners of each round will be revealed on The Tonight Show and across its digital platforms, including a dedicated @FallonBookClub Instagram account. 

The sweet sixteen contenders in Fallon Book Club’s literary tournament are:

  • The Fury by Alex Michaelides
  • James by Percival Everett
  • Nightwatching by Tracy Sierra
  • Grief is for People by Sloane Crosley
  • Wandering Stars by Tommy Orange
  • Where Sleeping Girls Lie by Faridah Àbíké-Íyímídé
  • The Year of the Locust by Terry Hayes
  • Ordinary Human Failings by Megan Nolan
  • Annie Bot by Sierra Greer
  • The Fox Wife by Yangsze Choo
  • Interesting Facts and Space by Emily Austin 
  • The Hunter by Tana French 
  • The Other Valley by Scott Alexander Howard
  • The Bullet Swallower by Elizabeth Gonzalez James
  • A Short Walk Through a Wide World by Douglas Westerbeke
