      Description
      Veteran fashion journalist Elizabeth Holmes expands her award-winning Instagram Stories series, "So Many Thoughts," into a nuanced look at the style, branding, and positioning of the four most influential contemporary British Royals: Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Diana, Kate Middleton, and Meghan Markle.

      Royal women wield a unique, quiet kind of power. They use their clothing choices and their styling preferences to create a visual brand that is at once aspirational and accessible, and to project a sartorial statement that encompasses their values, priorities, and beliefs. For Britain's modern monarchy, fashion is often the most powerful and prominent political statement. And for this reason, it is ripe for dissection - from the tip of the fascinator to the toe of the pump.

      Today, the fashion choices of Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle are frequently headline news. At the same time as these royals give us major wardrobe envy, they also use their clothing to send messages about their place within the royal family and the world. But to fully understand the choices Kate and Meghan are making, one must look to two style icons that came before them: Queen Elizabeth II and Diana, Princess of Wales. Elizabeth famously wears bright colors to stand out in a crowd and help her security detail keep tabs on her; Diana favored fashion-forward and often-revealing pieces, signaling her independence (especially after her divorce from Prince Charles).

      With one section devoted to each woman, HRH will pair hundreds of gorgeous photographs with lengthy captions and longer essays to paint a vivid portrait of each woman's sartorial preferences, messaging, and evolution. The sections on each will be a seamless combination of major moments and notable details, from the choice of each woman's wedding dress designer to the meaning of a single bow tied on a ponytail. But mostly, through these four biographies, a picture emerges of the evolution of the British monarchy over the past century, showing that royal fashion is so much more than what meets the eye.

      Filled with hundreds of 4-color photos and presented in a luxurious, coffee table-ready package, HRH will be split into four sections, each covering one of the four royals. The book will build off of Elizabeth's Instagram series, "So Many Thoughts" (SMT), by expanding her signature royal commentary to include deep-dive essays on both the royal women she studies and broader topics such as the cultural history of the hat and the role of social media in royal commentary. And of course, HRH will include plenty of the iconic photo captions that SMT fans have come to love.

      Think the format of NOTORIOUS RBG with the content of The Crown and the social media buzz of THE HOME EDIT.
      Bio

      INSTANT #1NEW YORK TIMESBESTSELLER
      NOW UPDATED WITH A NEW CHAPTER

      In his first and only official autobiography, music icon Elton John reveals the truth about his extraordinary life, from his rollercoaster lifestyle as shown in the filmRocketman, to becoming a living legend.


      Christened Reginald Dwight, he was a shy boy with Buddy Holly glasses who grew up in the London suburb of Pinner and dreamed of becoming a pop star. By the age of twenty-three he was performing his first gig in America, facing an astonished audience in his bright yellow dungarees, a star-spangled T-shirt, and boots with wings. Elton John had arrived and the music world would never be the same again.

      His life has been full of drama, from the early rejection of his work with song-writing partner Bernie Taupin to spinning out of control as a chart-topping superstar; from half-heartedly trying to drown himself in his LA swimming pool to disco-dancing with Princess Diana and Queen Elizabeth; from friendships with John Lennon, Freddie Mercury, and George Michael to setting up his AIDS Foundation to conquering Broadway withAida,The Lion King, andBilly Elliot the Musical. All the while Elton was hiding a drug addiction that would grip him for over a decade.

      InMe, Elton also writes powerfully about getting clean and changing his life, about finding love with David Furnish and becoming a father. In a voice that is warm, humble, and open, this is Elton on his music and his relationships, his passions and his mistakes. This is a story that will stay with you by a living legend.

      Bio

      Elton John’s career achievements to date are unsurpassed. One of the top-selling solo artist of all time, in August 2018 he was named the most successful male solo artist in the Billboard Hot 100 chart history. Elton’s many honours include two Oscars, six Grammys, thirteen Ivor Novellos and a BRIT Award.

      When not recording or touring, Elton devotes his time to a number of charities, including his own Elton John AIDS Foundation, which has raised over $450 million in the global fight against HIV/AIDS. In 2019 he was awarded the Légion d’Honneur, France’s highest civilian award, and in Britain was made a Companion of Honour in recognition of his services to music and charity. He is married to David Furnish, and they have two sons.

      “[Me] pushes the envelope. . . . The movieRocketmangave a reasonably accurate overview of the Elton John story—but it barely scratched the surface of what’s in this memoir. The lurid parts will get all the headlines. But [it is really about] the man’s hard-won self-knowledge.”
      The New York Times

      "Thought you got all of Elton John's story in the rollicking biopic,Rocketman? Well, consider that merely a tasty appetizer ahead of this ultra-rich and heavy dinner."
      —NBC News

      “Magnificent. . . . WhileMeis as colorful as you’d expect from an artist famous for his outlandish stage costumes and outsize temper tantrums, it is also so much more. . . . Fans who think seeingRocketmanwas enough and can ‘eventually’ read his memoir, we can tell you: do not wait a long, long time.Meis a riveting, laugh-til-you-cry, heartfelt page-turner.”
      Entertainment Weekly

      “[Elton] proves himself an engrossing, fluid and alarmingly forthcoming writer. . . Like [his] songs,Meoverflows with whimsical characters, twisted humor, winking self-aggrandizement and stark pathos. . . . An absorbing and unfettered joy.”
      TIME

      “By turn hilarious, touching, and surprising. . . . In between the countless anecdotes with stars from across the decades, John’s enthusiasm for music continues to shine through. . . . It's wonderful to read [and] compelling evidence that Elton John was born to be [a star].”
      The Independent

      “Outrageously enjoyable. . . . [Elton] is utterly, astonishingly, hilariously self-lacerating. . . . His clear-eyed honesty and his ear for the comic line make him a deeply appealing memoirist.”
      The Guardian

      “Excellent. . . . [Me] mines a rich seam of salacious and self-deprecating anecdote, heady scandal, personal struggle, and ultimate redemption, all delivered with a total lack of self-consciousness.”
      The Wall Street Journal

      “A uniquely revealing pop star autobiography. . . .Meis essential reading for anyone who wants to know the difficult road that [Elton has] walked.”

Those like Fallon, in possession of gifts, are hunted—and the time is coming when her true nature, her identity as The One, can no longer be hidden.

      In a mysterious shelter in the forest, her training is about to begin under the guidance of Mallick, whose skills have been honed over centuries. She will learn the old ways of healing; study and spar; encounter faeries and elves and shifters; and find powers within herself she never imagined. And when the time is right, she will take up the sword, and fight. For until she grows into the woman she was born to be, the world outside will never be whole again.

      FromMichael Greger, M.D., FACLM, the author of theNew York Times bestsellerHow Not to Die, comes a four-color, fully illustrated cookbook that shares the science of long-term weight-loss success.

      Dr. Michael Greger founded the viral website Nutritionfacts.org with the aim to educate the public about what healthy eating looks like and connect them with a community through food-related podcasts, videos, and blogs. Since then, Nutritionfacts.org has grown and so has Dr. Greger's platform.How Not to Die andTheHow Not to Die Cookbookwere instant hits, and now he's back with a new book about mindful dieting—how to eat well, lose, and keep unwanted weight off in a healthy, accessible way that's not so much a diet as it is a lifestyle.

      Greger offers readers delicious yet healthy options that allow them to ditch the idea of "dieting" altogether. As outlined in his bookHow Not to Diet, Greger believes that identifying the twenty-one weight-loss accelerators in our bodies and incorporating new, cutting-edge medical discoveries are integral in putting an end to the all-consuming activity of counting calories and getting involved in expensive juice cleanses and Weight Watchers schemes.

      Description
      A moving account of resilience, hope, fear and mortality, and how these things resonate in our lives, by actor and advocate Michael J. Fox.

      The entire world knows Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly, the teenage sidekick of Doc Brown in Back to the Future; as Alex P. Keaton in Family Ties; as Mike Flaherty in Spin City; and through numerous other movie roles and guest appearances on shows such as The Good Wife and Curb Your Enthusiasm. Diagnosed at age 29, Michael is equally engaged in Parkinson’s advocacy work, raising global awareness of the disease and helping find a cure through The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, the world’s leading non-profit funder of PD science. His two previous bestselling memoirs, Lucky Man and Always Looking Up, dealt with how he came to terms with the illness, all the while exhibiting his iconic optimism.  His new memoir reassesses this outlook, as events in the past decade presented additional challenges.

      In No Time Like the Future: An Optimist Considers Mortality, Michael shares personal stories and observations about illness and health, aging, the strength of family and friends, and how our perceptions about time affect the way we approach mortality. Thoughtful and moving, but with Fox’s trademark sense of humor, his book provides a vehicle for reflection about our lives, our loves, and our losses.

      Running through the narrative is the drama of the medical madness Fox recently experienced, that included his daily negotiations with the Parkinson’s disease he’s had since 1991, and a spinal cord issue that necessitated immediate surgery. His challenge to learn how to walk again, only to suffer a devastating fall, nearly caused him to ditch his trademark optimism and “get out of the lemonade business altogether.”

      Does he make it all of the way back? Read the book.

      "For a certain consumer of Generation X pop culture, Michael J. Fox calls to mind 'Family Ties' in prime time, 'Back to the Future' in movie theaters, interviews in Tiger Beat. The energy that made him such a riveting presence onscreen comes through in his book."—TheNew York Times

      "You're going to love this book. This is vintage Michael J. Fox. It is funny, it is intimate, it is philosophical.... Mike doesn't call himself a writer or a philosopher, but he is both. And it really comes through in this book. It is so well written [and] it brings you inside what is a very tough time for him, but it also tells you what he learned from it. A lot of wisdom there."—George Stephanopoulos, Good Morning America

      "Fans ofThe Chilbury Ladies’ Choir and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society will adoreThe Jane Austen Society… A charming and memorable debut, which reminds us of the universal language of literature and the power of books to unite and heal." —Pam Jenoff,New York Times bestselling author ofThe Lost Girls of Paris


      Just after the Second World War, in the small English village of Chawton, an unusual but like-minded group of people band together to attempt something remarkable.

      One hundred and fifty years ago, Chawton was the final home of Jane Austen, one of England's finest novelists. Now it's home to a few distant relatives and their diminishing estate. With the last bit of Austen's legacy threatened, a group of disparate individuals come together to preserve both Jane Austen's home and her legacy. These people—a laborer, a young widow, the local doctor, and a movie star, among others—could not be more different and yet they are united in their love for theworks and words of Austen. As each of them endures their own quiet struggle with loss and trauma, some from the recent war, others from more distant tragedies, they rally together to create the Jane Austen Society.

      A powerful and moving novel that explores the tragedies and triumphs of life, both large and small, and the universal humanity in us all, Natalie Jenner'sThe Jane Austen Society is destined to resonate with readers for years to come.

      Description

      The 16th novel by #1 bestselling author Louise Penny finds Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of the Sûreté du Quebec investigating a sinister plot in the City of Light

      On their first night in Paris, the Gamaches gather as a family for a bistro dinner with Armand’s godfather, the billionaire Stephen Horowitz. Walking home together after the meal, they watch in horror as Stephen is knocked down and critically injured in what Gamache knows is no accident, but a deliberate attempt on the elderly man’s life.

      When a strange key is found in Stephen’s possession it sends Armand, his wife Reine-Marie, and his former second-in-command at the Sûreté , Jean-Guy Beauvoir, from the top of the Tour d’Eiffel, to the bowels of the Paris Archives, from luxury hotels to odd, coded, works of art.

      It sends them deep into the secrets Armand’s godfather has kept for decades.

      A gruesome discovery in Stephen’s Paris apartment makes it clear the secrets are more rancid, the danger far greater and more imminent, than they realized.

      Soon the whole family is caught up in a web of lies and deceit. In order to find the truth, Gamache will have to decide whether he can trust his friends, his colleagues, his instincts, his own past. His own family.

      For even the City of Light casts long shadows. And in that darkness devils hide.

      Praise forAll the Devils Are Here

      “Although Penny touches on a wide range of subjects in this expansive story, her main concern is with the sacrifices we make for those we love. Here, even the loving relationship between Gamache and his son, Daniel, is challenged. If you think about it, the underlying theme of all of Penny’s books is Honor Thy Family — the one you were born with, the one you’ve acquired during your lifetime and the Family of Man.” —The New York Times Book Review

      “Penny excels at capturing the inner life, whether it’s a criminal’s or a resentful child’s. Series novices and die-hard fans alike will be left breathless—and moved.”
      People Magazine (Book of the Week)

      “Armand Gamache seems as much a spiritual warrior as a homicide detective… What stays with the reader are the tender passages, the human insights, the reminders of what makes life worth living.”
      Wall Street Journal

      “You don't need to have read the previous books to enjoy the mystery (whose apt title refers to a line from Shakespeare'sThe Tempest: ‘Hell is empty and all the devils are here’), but knowing a bit about the characters’ backgrounds helps you follow the subtle tensions between them."
      —AARP The Magazine

      “Penny excels at creating a sense of place, and she brings Paris to life with scenes small (a favorite garden at the Rodin museum) and big (the top of the Eiffel Tower). We walk — or, when necessary, run — through the streets of Paris, taste lemon tarts and mourn the fire damage to Notre Dame.”
      St. Louis Post Dispatch

      “Penny’s books are always a cause for celebration, and this one is superb in every regard.”
      Booklist(Top Review)

      “Penny's series has always been about the complexities and sustaining glories of family, and here she takes that theme even further, revealing fissures in the Gamache clan, but also showing the resilience and love at its root. Series devotees will revel in both Penny's evocation of Paris—every bit as sumptuous as her rendering of Three Pines—and in the increased role she allots to librarian Reine-Marie, whose research skills are crucial to untying the Gordian knot at the mystery's core.”
      Booklist(starred)

      “Exceptional… Penny’s nuanced exploration of the human spirit continues to distinguish this brilliant series.”
      Publishers Weekly (starred)

      “As always, Penny's mystery is meticulously constructed and reveals hard truths about the hidden workings of the world—as well as the workings of the Gamache family. But there's plenty of local color, too, with a trip to the top of the Eiffel Tower to escape surveillance and a luxurious suite at the Hotel George V for good measure. If you're new to Penny's world, this would be a great place to jump in. Then go back and start the series from the beginning.”
      Kirkus Reviews(starred)

      "The strengths of this latest procedural from the inimitable Penny will attract her longtime fans and also draw in new admirers. A deft touch with plotting, sensitive characterization, and the author’s warmth and humanity make this a must-have mystery, especially for collections owning the rest of series.”

      Description

      InNew York Times bestselling author Marissa Meyer's young adult contemporary romance, a girl is suddenly gifted with the ability to cast instant karma on those around her – both good and bad.

      Chronic overachiever Prudence Barnett is always quick to cast judgment on the lazy, rude, and arrogant residents of her coastal town. Her dreams of karmic justice are fulfilled when, after a night out with her friends, she wakes up with the sudden ability to cast instant karma on those around her.

      Pru giddily makes use of the power, punishing everyone from public vandals to mean gossips, but there is one person on whom her powers consistently backfire: Quint Erickson, her slacker of a lab partner. Quint is annoyingly cute and impressively noble, especially when it comes to his work with the rescue center for local sea animals.

      When Pru resigns herself to working at the rescue center for extra credit, she begins to uncover truths about baby otters, environmental upheaval, and romantic crossed signals—not necessarily in that order. Her newfound karmic insights reveal how thin the line is between virtue and vanity, generosity and greed . . . love and hate… and fate.

      In bestselling author Christopher Golden's supernatural thrillerRed Hands, sometimes a story is a warning. Sometimes the warning comes too late

      When a mysterious and devastating bioweapon causes its victims to develop Red Hands, the touch of death, weird science expert Ben Walker is called to investigate.

      A car plows through the crowd at a July 4th parade. The driver climbs out, sick and stumbling, reaching out…and everyone he touches drops dead within seconds. Maeve Sinclair watches in horror as people she loves begin to die and she knows she must take action. But in the aftermath of this terror, it’s Maeve who possesses that killing touch. Fleeing into the mountains, struggling with her own grief and confusion, Maeve faces the dawning realization that she will never be able to touch another human being again.

      "Weird s**t expert” Ben Walker is surprised to get a call from Alena Boudreau, director of the newly restructured Global Science Research Coalition. There’s an upheaval in the organization and she needs to send someone she can trust to Jericho Falls. Whoever finds Maeve Sinclair first will unravel the mystery of her death touch, and many are willing to kill her for that secret.

      Walker’s assignment is to get her off the mountain alive. But as Maeve searches for a hiding place, hunted and growing sicker by the moment, she begins to hear an insidious voice in her head, and the yearning, the need… thehunger to touch another human being continues to grow. When Walker and Maeve meet at last, they will unravel a stunning legacy of death and betrayal, and a malignant secret as old as history.

      *TimeOut's *5 New Books You'll Want to Binge-Read This December"*

      "Tautly written,Red Hands — the third in a series starring Walker — excels not just because of its scare factor (which is high), but also its humane depiction of grief, isolation and fear, growing mistrust of government and even one’s own neighbors." —The Washington Post

      "The neck-whipping action and shifting points of view give the reader a wide-angle perspective...invoking maximum terror on every page...For fans of horror-thriller series like those by Jonathan Maberry and Mira Grant." —Booklist(Starred Review)

Only Christopher Golden could weave together compelling characters and a gripping plot like this.” —Mallory O'Meara, bestselling author ofThe Lady from the Black Lagoon

      "Ben Walker is back in Christopher Golden'sRed Hands, a plague novel with a twist you won't see coming.

And the ride is a hell of a lot more fun." —Nathan Ballingrud, author ofWounds
