March Trilogy

51ZRJL8XCgL._SX340_BO1,204,203,200_.jpgThe March trilogy, written by John Lewis, Andrew Aydin and Nate Powell, explores the Civil Right’s movement in America through the eyes of John Lewis. This trilogy is a powerful showcase of the good, bad, and extremely ugly moments in America’s history as civilians and leaders fought for equality. Each book focuses on a different sector of events, such as the Greensboro sit-ins.

This trilogy is really wonderful. I love this current movement to put important historical events and stories into graphic novels. It makes the reading engaging, and it adds the right about of visualization. I would give these books a 5 out of 5. If you are looking to be more informed about American history, or you just want an engaging read, this one is for you.

Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari

23453112.jpgDating life not going well? Tormented by the limitless romantic options out there? Never satisfied with your dates? Aziz Ansari explores the complex world of modern dating. Through humor, Aziz discusses topics from dating apps, dating trends, cheating, snooping and marriage with various research. He not only presents data from sociologists, but he talks to people from around the world to gather insight into what makes dating in 2017 complex and what are our new advantages.

I am really glad I picked up this book. Not only did Aziz have me laughing out loud, but there were so many topics that he covered beautifully. I even learned a little bit about my own dating life! I would definitely recommend this book to young men and women. The topics are presented from various points of views and allows the reader to form their own opinion. Overall, I give the book 4 out of 5 stars. I skimmed through a few pages because I lost interest or the information felt repetitive. But overall, I enjoyed this book.
