Still searching for a present for the number one history fan in your life? Never fear; HistoryBuff is here. 

1. The Romanovs by Simon Sebag Montefiore


There are a ton of great non-fiction tomes available this season, but one stellar pick is The Romanovs. Historian Simon Sebag Montefiore has made his name covering big-ticket items (Jerusalem, Stalin) in his bestsellers, but this is an especially entertaining read. Covering the entire history of this decadent dynasty, Montefiore manages to turn three centuries of Russian royalty into a rip-roaring, sexy, and scandalous story that you won't be able to put down...even if you know how it ends.
