The Devil In The White City by Erik Larson-Historical fiction set at the Chicago World's Fair. Learned alot about architecture and Chicago World's Fair . Also a crime novel about the first Chicago serial killer.
Anne Rice is insane or she could have never have imagined the sick twisted world of a 500 year old family of witches. About halfway through you forget how messed up her head must be and are just completely sucked into the witch drama.
