Things I've Read


With the start of my junior year I’m beginning a new series of posts. Here I’ll store my thoughts on every new thing (book, article, collection of poems, etc.) that I read and have a post’s worth of thoughts on, whether academic or recreational. Please browse at your leisure if you’re interested in finding something new to read, or just want to read my rants. I’ll try to keep all these under a 3 minute read.

Favorite Work: Watchmen

I’ve been wanting to read this graphic novel ever since the movie came out years ago, and I’m so glad I finally got around to doing so. This piece is a work of art from cover to cover, bursting with details, nuance, and emotion. I read it in just a few hours, and would recommend it to pretty much anyone over the age of 13.

Favorite Work: What Football Will Look Like in the Future: 17776

This piece surprised me every step of the way and had me ranting and raving for weeks. It’ll take you less than a day, you read it on your computer, and I can say with almost certainty that you will never have encountered anything like this story. Check it out.
