With the holidays just a couple of weeks away I can imagine some of you may be freaking out. Whether you’ve simply forgotten, or just have no idea what to get anybody, you have no reason to fear. Over the last month the team here at GGA have produced some wonderful gift guides that should take the stress out of holiday shopping. As for that pesky true crime lover in your life? We’ll take care of them too with this fun and potentially traumatizing gift guide.
For the Book Worm
Let’s be honest, the title says it all. Michael Newton’s The Encyclopedia of Serial Killers is a deep dive into some of the most notorious serial killers of all time. As it says, it’s an encyclopedia so it is all fact based on cases such as Jack the Ripper, The Green River Killer and Jeffrey Dahmer. Makes for a great coffee table book for your favorite weirdo and is available on Amazon for $19.95.
Harold Schechter’s, one of America’s best true crime writers, Fiend tells the chilling tale of Boston’s Boy Fiend, Jesse Pomeroy. Pomeroy, who was 16 at the time, became the youngest person in the history of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to be convicted of murder in the first degree in 1874. Learn about the child killer- who was a child himself- for $17 courtesy of Amazon.
Staying sexy and not getting murdered is a tough job. Lucky for everyone Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark have written a book to make it a little easier. In their highly anticipated duel memoir, Karen and Georgia share never-before-heard stories about their struggles with depression, eating disorders, and addiction and how they became two of the most beloved voices in the world. Available for pre-order on all major booksellers for $24.99.
Coloring books totally count as books, right? Even if they don’t you might want to make an exception for this lovely Serial Killer Big Kid Coloring Book.
