My Week in a Wrapped #1

I’ve just recently joined this meme ’cause it sounds a lot of fun. Plus a lot of my blogger friends joined in so I’ll do my best to update this every Sunday of the week. 😀


The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

We have undergone APE or Annual Physical Exam as part of being employed and to make sure that we are still fit to work as per company policy last Thursday. I hate the idea. Especially the lab part and the actual physical exam. I understand this is for my own good, but can you imagine someone else checking your breast for lumps and sticking a finger right up your ass? Sorry for the language. I felt so violated. LOL!  My arm where the nurse took blood sample is still bruised after two days. I don’t have a clue, but somehow I think she doesn’t know what she’s doing. It hurts pretty bad. I’m really glad I survived it and it’s an annual thing.

In the Labyrinth, we had a saying: keep silent, keep still, keep safe.

In a city of walls and secrets, where only one man is supposed to possess magic, seventeen-year-old Kai struggles to keep hidden her own secret—she can manipulate the threads of time. When Kai was eight, she was found by Reev on the riverbank, and her “brother” has taken care of her ever since. Kai doesn’t know where her ability comes from—or where she came from. All that matters is that she and Reev stay together, and maybe one day move out of the freight container they call home, away from the metal walls of the Labyrinth. Kai’s only friend is Avan, the shopkeeper’s son with the scandalous reputation that both frightens and intrigues her.

Then Reev disappears. When keeping silent and safe means losing him forever, Kai vows to do whatever it takes to find him. She will leave the only home she’s ever known and risk getting caught up in a revolution centuries in the making. But to save Reev, Kai must unravel the threads of her past and face shocking truths about her brother, her friendship with Avan, and her unique power.

I will have a separate post for this if I’ll have time so everything on my blog would be uniform. Hihi! My apologies. I’m OC like that. 😀

  1. Thanks for the ping back! And I agree, posting book hauls are fun. It’s also a chance for your readers to see what you’ve been up to the week prior. 🙂

    I hope you’ll enjoy Gates of Thread and Stone. I’ve yet to read my copy but i’m curious to see you what you think.

    Have a great week!

  2. Oh my God! I’d flip out at the exam. We have to have our blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar and BMI checked for insurance but that’s not nearly as invasive.
    I love the Sunday Post because it’s so flexible and you can make it whatever you want it be. Gates of Thread and Stone sounds great! Hope you’re enjoying it! Have a great week!

  3. Wow! That is an invasive medical and an annual exam too! Thank goodness they don’t do them as much here anymore. I hope this week is better for you 🙂

  4. Wow… I can’t image a job that requires a finger up the ass… Well, I can, but a few I’m amazing are surely illegal 😛 hope you weren’t too traumatized!

  5. Ouch! I hate doing physical exams as well. Yes I know that they are good for me, but it’s just awful. Anyhow I’m glad it’s over. I truly hope you’re enjoying Gates of Thread and Stone! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  6. I just want to say wow, Gates of Thread and Stone sounds really interesting. I am going to have to check it out.
    Sorry to hear about your physical – that totally sucks! Hopefully you’ll start to feel better soon. I hope this week is a good one for you.

  7. One day i am going to have a haul that just points to my last haul. Its a good goal. I have to stop getting more and more books. I need to catch up. Gates of Thread and Stone looks really good. i hope you are enjoying it. Have a great week!

    • I agree! I’m really trying my best to finish what I have first or I’ll continue to get more books and ended up drowning. LOL! Im liking the book so far. Thanks dear! Hope youll have a great week too.

  8. I don’t even want to know where you work… I’ve had two physicals for my jobs and they just basically tested for drugs, eyesight, and if I could bend over and pick up stuff. I’m so sorry – I wouldn’t want to work where you work!!!!

    I actually got Gates at the library but I still need to read it – It sounds so fantastic 🙂 I hope you’re liking it. Have a great week!!

  9. I don’t think I would like that if the place I worked for made me do that. What if they find something unhealthy with they get rid of you cause your not fit to work there anymore? That book your reading sounds really interesting! 🙂

    • I think it depends. They usually give you days off so you can take meds and secure a certificate that you’re already fit to work. If its not something serious, they’ll just give you meds.

      Ill post a review soon 🙂

  10. I agree annual exams aren’t fun. I guess knowing you’re healthy is good, but still having it mandated by your workplace….

    Gates of Thread and Stone sounds good as does your next read Winterspell. I look forward to what you think about them.

  11. Ugh that Annual Physical Exam sounds terrible. Although ofcourse it can’t hurt to be checked for those things once in a while, it’s still no fun.
    I hope you’ll enjoy the sunday post meme!

  12. Ugh I hate when nurses do that. Typically it happens when they have trouble getting the vein or stick you too hard, I rarely end up with bruises but when I do they look & feel awful. I love the cover of the book you’re currently reading, stunning!

  13. Ahhh yeah, I think I’d hate to go through exams like that for work…. seems like a violation of privacy.
    I hope you liked Gates of Threads and Stone. I have wanted to read that.

    Thanx for visiting My Weekly Wrap-Up!
