The Brothers by Stephen Kinzer

Stephen Kinzer delivers an excellent biography of the Dulles brothers, those cold warriors that shaped and defined so much of modern history - and altho the book could sometimes have had a little less redundant summarizing and a little more historical detail, it was extremely well written, well researched, easy to read, and fascinating. 

The Haunting of Hill House (2018 on Netflix)

I don’t usually go for horror because I don’t enjoy the feeling of being creeped out, which this miniseries certainly had plenty of (along with some excellent practical effects), but I will say that the story itself was superb, with lots of twists and reveals that had me hooked, and even tho some of the characters’ monologues got a little long and theatrical for my taste, the overall journey was surprisingly fulfilling and heartfelt.
