I bought The Elite yesterday, but when I got home I’ve decided to ‘shelf it for now’. Shelf it for now my ass. After taking a nap, I’ve decided to start reading the book and good thing I did! The excitement is just killing me because I’ve been waiting for this book since last year!
Thirty-five girls came to the palace to compete in the Selection. All but six have been sent home. And only one will get to marry Prince Maxon and be crowned princess of Illea.
America still isn’t sure where her heart lies. When she’s with Maxon, she’s swept up in their new and breathless romance, and can’t dream of being with anyone else. But whenever she sees Aspen standing guard around the palace, and is overcome with memories of the life they planned to share. With the group narrowed down to the Elite, the other girls are even more determined to win Maxon over—and time is running out for America to decide.
Just when America is sure she’s made her choice, a devastating loss makes her question everything again. And while she’s struggling to imagine her future, the violent rebels that are determined to overthrow the monarchy are growing stronger and their plans could destroy her chance at any kind of happy ending —Goodreads

Have a great weekend!
I’m off for today and tomorrow, and honestly, I prefer to spend a day of my day off out. But with the current weather condition in Manila, I can’t. That’s why I’m entertaining myself to the best possible way, because I get bored easily.
Anyway, I’ve decided to tidy up one of my vanity drawers and found a couple of things:
