ICYMI, Katarina Rodriguez was crowned Miss World Philippines 2018 yesterday. And a quick peek at her IG feed tells us that apparently, this stunning model and beauty queen is also a bookworm! Here's proof:
She's building her own library!
Katarina actually has a 111-year-old copy of JM Barrie's Peter Pan.
Fun fact: She found it at an antique bookstore in New York City!
She's read Love In The Time Of Cholera.
This novel by Gabriel Garcia Marquez tells the story of Florentino Ariza who, after fifty years, nine months, and four days declared his old love for a woman named Fermina Daza again.
What could be more perfect than reading by the beach...or the pool?
Katarina loves non-fiction, too!
She's buddies with Greek philosophers.
Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle, anyone?
And...she's brushing up on the greatest females of all time.
This book contains the biographies and profiles of Queen Nefertiti of Egypt, ~villainous~ Catherine de Medici, and female prime ministers such as Margaret Thatcher. We want our own copy!
