| WISHLIST WEDNESDAY | #34 Book Inspired Coloring Books

I LOVE coloring. For me, it’s one of the best therapies out there. I’ve loved it ever since I was a little kid. Some of these coloring books I’m going to show you, are must haves, even if you don’t like to color yourself. The drawings, especially those of Throne of Glass, a Court of Thorns and Roses, the Mortal Instruments – which are my favorites.: They’re so beautiful! The drawings portray some of the most awesome scenes from the books and they’re so detailed, just amazing! And it’s more then enough to just have them in your collection so you can flip through them once in a while if you really don’t want to color them. But the ones that are inspired from some YA book series, are definitely must haves for the fans! I love seeing the coloring books on my shelves!

I’ve got the coloring books of Throne of Glass and a Court of Thorns and Roses, so my collection isn’t that large, but I can’t wait to expand the collection! And aside from coloring books inspired from YA stories, there are so much more coloring books I’m already in love with and want to buy. I’ve got quite a large wishlist already, yikes. Let me show you!

a coloring book inspired from the Grimm Fairy tales, so awesome!! Look at that box, it looks amazing! 500 pages filled with drawings from different Grimm fairy tales.

There’s also a cheaper paperback coloring book available from the Grimm fairy tales but I’ve set my eyes on this one *sorryNOTsorry*

How do you feel about coloring?
