2016-11-16 - Hillary The Coloring Book - 0003 [flickr]

So on Election Day I tweeted a picture of my I Voted sticker @Ulysses Press to win a Hillary Clinton coloring book, and now the sight of it makes me want to cry. So…yeah. Not exactly the best start to this month’s roundup.

2016-11-21 - The Orphan's Tale - 0004 [flickr]

ON A LIGHTER NOTE, I was especially psyched to find this ARC of The Orphan’s Tale in my mailbox, since my request was denied on Edelweiss. Score! Thanks much, Harlequin!

2016-11-23 - Afterward Audiobook - 0003 [flickr]

From Library Thing’s October Early Reviewers batch, a Recorded Books production of Afterward, by Jennifer Mathieu. I really enjoyed Devoted and The Truth About Alice, and was really stoked to win a copy. I started it yesterday while walking the dogs, and so far it’s excellent.

2016-11-23 - Fannie Flagg Books - 0004 [flickr]

Thanks to Shelf Awareness and Random House, I received this prize pack of Fannie Flagg books. The Whole Town’s Talking comes out next week. :)

2016-11-23 - Nat Geo Book - 0007 [flickr]

Also from Shelf Awareness (and NatGeo) is this copy of National Geographic’s latest photography book, @NatGeo: The Most Popular Instagram Photos. It’s stunning, as per usual.

Rennie desperately wants to be included in the next edition, but Mom doesn’t have an Indtagram account. (Boo!)

Just kidding, she’s praying for the day when I stop drafting her into my book photos.

2016-11-16 - David Bowie Coloring Book - 0001 [flickr]

For review through Blogging for Books: a David Bowie coloring book. Eeeeps!

2016-11-16 - Born A Crime - 0001 [flickr]

Trevor Noah’s memoir dropped this month, and I have a shiny new copy! (Thanks to…Doubleday Canada (?).)

2016-11-14 - The Fall Guy - 0001 [flickr]

From W. W. Norton & Company, an ARC of James Lasdun’s The Fall Guy. The cover has totally got me yearning for warmer, simpler times. WE WERE SO YOUNG AND NAIVE YOU GUYS.
