Yes, you are seeing double. Jimmy Fallon of The Tonight Show is not really striking poses with Tomi Adeyemi’s Children of Blood and Bone. Someone had way too much time on their hands and got a bit too creative. But how, you might ask, did we get here?
The weather gods have ordained that summer is the only time for reading. Everyone and their mother wait till this time of year to catch up on their reading. Everywhere you look, someone is organizing a bookclub or a community reading event. Jimmy Fallon clearly doesn’t want to be left out. He currently has five books shortlisted for his summer bookclub. He is asking that the public vote for which book will be selected for The Tonight Show Summer Reads.
VOTING’S STILL OPEN TO MAKE #CHILDRENOFBLOODANDBONE @JIMMYFALLON’S SUMMER READ!!! Thank you so much to everyone’s who voted!!!

If you are not familiar with Fallon, he is a comedian, one of the best and most highly regarded in the country. His leaping move in the picture captures the very essence of Adeyemi’s book—fun and exhilarating adventure story set in a beautifully crafted fantasy world.
You can either buy Adeyemi’s book and experience the (fake) rapture you see on Fallon’s face and/or vote for her so that her book gets to be the selected for the #TonightShowSummerReads.
Vote by noon on Thursday, June 28th. Fallon will announce the winner on the show on Friday, June 29th.
