I received some great new coloring books under our tree on Christmas Day: The Crazy Cat Lady Coloring Book (sooooo appropriate and which I’ll review soon!) and Winter Magic: Beautiful Holiday Patterns Coloring Book for Adults. However, there are a couple that I’d still like to add to my collection and lucky me, Amazon has quite a few on sale. The Amazon gift card I also received as a present will soon be depleted….
With no further ado, here are my favorites:
Secret Garden: An Inky Treasure Hunt and Coloring Book, now only $9.57, from $15.95. I know, you probably already have a copy like I do, but I so want another one as I used alcohol-based markers on a lot of the pages, making the illustration on the other side of the page unusable. As well, the publisher says it now has thicker and heavier paper stock to fight bleed-through from ink pens.
Adult Coloring Books: A Coloring Book for Adults Featuring Mandalas and Henna Inspired Flowers, Animals, and Paisley Patterns, now only $6.85 from $8.49, 48 designs. Some of the drawings in this books have great dark accents, which I am longing to play around with, and I love the compact size (8.5″ x 8.5″). Single-sided.
Adult Coloring Book: Stress Relieving Animal Designs, now only $8.57 down from $12.99, 40 designs. I’ve done a few animals in other books, but am ready for the full-on challenge! Single-sided.
Creative Coloring Inspirations: Art Activity Pages to Relax and Enjoy!, now only $6.34, down from $9.99, 30 designs. One of my resolutions for the New Year is to give motivational sayings a try to keep me in a positive frame of mind when I get down or angry. This is one of the highest-reviewed coloring books for inspirational sayings. Single-sided.
The Coloring Cafe-Volume One: A Coloring Book for Grown-Up Girls, now $8.99, down from $9.99, 48 designs. This book has received great reviews for its “whimsy.” It has a great mix of simple and detailed illustrations, and all are single-sided.
