My Review

So back when the whole adult coloring book trend started, I was hooked. I still enjoy it, but just haven’t made time for it much in a while, even the whole time I was stuck working from home because of the pandemic. However when the author of this reached out to me about if I’d like to review and share about it, I looked through it and decided that yeah, this had a lot of good pages and pictures I would enjoy coloring! Some have fun, inspirational/motivational sayings on them. Others are just pictures or patterns. I colored a few so I could share them with you. Never mind that I might be a little unorganized in my color choices sometimes. I do also like to color with both colored pencils as well as gel pens, so I did a couple different examples.

First I chose one of the motivational types of pages to color. I chose this one because it is something I do a lot. I compare myself to other bookstagrammers, other book bloggers, etc. I need to just continue reading, blogging, instagramming, just because I enjoy it.

Next, the book blogger/lover/reader in me had to choose one of the many pages that had books to color. This one also had a little saying on it. This is the one I’m not really happy with some of my color choices. But it was still fun! And there are a lot of pages with books on them, here are a few others I printed out to color:

And finally I chose to do a mandala type of picture, because I like to do the patterns and decide how to repeat colors and what colors to choose.

I had a ton of fun with this and can’t wait to color more! In fact I enjoyed this so much I’m going to give one away! I might be able to open this to international if you can get delivery through or, otherwise it will probably be a US winner. I’m wanting to give away a copy of this book as well as a set of colored pencils or gel pens, your choice of one of the two below (most likely, maybe different if it is Canada or UK.

      I think I like colored pencils best, but occasionally if something is really detailed I like what I can do with a gel pen.

      I’ve never done much in coloring books with markers because they seem to bleed through a lot.
