Ten Books Under $10: April 2022 Finds
Hello friends! As with all book-related posts on My Colorful Wanderings, it’s me Shelbs! I’ve been wanting to share what we’re up to but we’ve just been really busy so writing has taken a backseat recently.
The only thing keeping me sane while I run around and wait on this has been reading? And since I’m a firm believer that reading makes you a better writer.. well… I really did this for you, my friends!!

4. Spoiler Alert by Olivia Dade
Everyone is loving the rom-com with cartoon covers genre recently and I can totally see why after reading The Spanish Love Deception and The Love Hypothesis. (Two of my other faves this year!)
