Book Reviews from December #NewToYou2016

Cosmic Seasoning: A Collection of Short Stories By L.G. Keltner July 29, 2015 This collection of speculative fiction stories was very fun to read. I enjoyed the “Polite Letter of Complaint” with the line: I would never insult such a rotund, mentally-deficient, greedy despot such as yourself. There are some news-relevant, deep stories mixed in …

Allegiant by Veronica Roth My rating: 5 of 5 stars This is a great book filled with plenty of emotion. There are excellent character arcs. Self-sacrifice, love, family, protection, and survival are all well integrated. Symbolism pops up. Allegiant even manages to be politically relevant to the 2016 election. Humans try to better themselves. They …
