As part of this series, I am also sharing recommendations from others. Today’s book recommendation comes from Michelle at Hit the Bricks.

A great gift for someone who loves history and the macabre

  • Name of book: The Devil in the White City
  • Author: Erik Larson
  • What it is about: This book tells the story of the architect in charge of making the 1893 Chicago World Fair a success while also telling about the serial killer who capitalized on the surge in population that the fair brought.
  • Why I like/recommend it: I love horror and true crime. This book gave me a chance to indulge while also learning about some history that I didn’t know much about.
  • Other things people should know: Rumor has it Leonardo DiCaprio has bought the rights to this book to turn it into a movie.
