UNCommon Bodies is out today! UnCommon Bodies is a collection of stories curated by Pavarti K. Tyler that span across genres to explore the lives of the odd, the unbelievable, and the impossible.
I was so intrigued by the stories included in this collection that I just couldn’t pass up the chance to read it. One story in particular reeled me in: Skin by Brent Meske: After constant bullying in high school, Patricia vows to change her name and her entire being. When she gains the ability to mold and sculpt flesh, that vow very quickly becomes a terrifying reality. Now isn’t that something?
Read on to know more about this awesome collection of stories and check out my review. Of course, don’t forget to enter the giveaway, too. :)
Carpet Head and I managed to go to the movies for two consecutive nights this week, thanks to the special holidays brought on by the APEC Summit. We watched Mockingjay Part 2 the first night and Spectre on the next. Woot. I was going to write about both movies, but I realized they deserve separate posts. So this one’s just about Mockingjay. Duh.
I love tank tops. If only I could wear them all day errr-day and errr-where! Seriously, it’s my dream life – tank tops, shorts and flip flops or cute kicks forever. These days, I’m also obsessing about kicks coz the hubby’s obsessed with them and he has a growing collection of cute sneakies in fun bright colors while I have, like, one pair. Gah.
Anyway, here are some of my favorite graphic tanks for this week’s T-Shirt Thursday!
The cool tank top above:Yay! Big Hands! by Teo Zirinis (Threadless): Aww look at T-Rex, so happy with his big foam hands. Lookit his face! We should all be so happy to have big foam hands.
Best Left In The Shadows, the latest novella from author duo Mark Gelineau and Joe King, is out today and I am so ecstatic that I had the chance to read it. I’ve been a fan of Gelineau and King since I read their first story A Reaper of Stone and their second one, Rend The Dark, in the last two months. Going into Best Left In The Shadows, I already knew or expected that I was in for a treat!

Where my WriMos at? How are you doing with your projects? I hope you’re all doing okay. Moi, on the other hand – I’m kind of failing this challenge. Hah. Coming into November, I had a whole bunch of ideas I didn’t really know what to do with and I changed my initial story a couple of days ago and I wrote about 200 words as an intro. Tada! Seriously though, I’m not broken up about it. My goal for NaNo is to just come out with a good outline that I can work on beyond this month’s madness. :)
Anyway, thought I’d share this nice little infographic by Grammarly. During last year’s NaNoWriMo, Grammarly worked with about 500 writers from 54 countries to crowdsource a novel. They then analyzed the resulting 40,000 or so words and uncovered some common writing mistakes. Find a summary of the top five in the infographic below!

The other day I finally listened to Hello by Adele. It may not have been the best of ideas to do so at this time of the month, but I did anyway and it was glorious. Of course, I proceeded to binge-listen to my favorite songs of hers. Her voice is insane. Her talent is insane. Her eye makeup is insane (I want eeeet!). I love her.
