5 Adult Coloring Books Worth Checking Out

Adult coloring books are all the rage right now, and I’m into it myself.  I got a lot of cool coloring books and supplies as Christmas gifts, and I want to share some of my favorite adult coloring books with you, in no particular order.

Pixel Gamer Coloring Book:  I just grabbed this at A.C. Moore the other day, but you can get it on Amazon, too.  What I like about this book besides the fun coloring pages?  It gives you great trivia and tidbits about retro gaming every other page, as well as blank grids to draw your own pixel game art.

Color Your Own Renoir Paintings:  I got this at a little book store in the Outer Banks in the historic town of Corolla Light, NC.  I had been coloring mandalas over that week on vacation, and wanted to expand my coloring into impressionism.  I had just been at The Barnes Foundation, a Philadelphia museum that features a lot of Renoir a few weeks before.  I guess you can say it, well, made an impression on me.

Unicorns Are Jerks:  This is a hilarious book, and is definitely for adults.  Theo Nicole Lorenz, the author/artist has a whole series of books like this.  Grab your crayons and see why unicorns are indeed jerks.  My husband got me this one for Christmas, and I am looking forward to study how jerky unicorns are.

Creative Cats Coloring Book:  Now, it is no secret that I am a dog person, but I love this book.  I received it for Christmas.  Here’s a story as to why this book is special to me.  My supervisor is recovering from her third bout of leukemia (which she is kicking butt at, by the way), and was extremely bored.  Now, she IS a cat person.  I thought this book would be a nice activity for her, so I sent her some retractable crayons along with it.

Secret Garden: An Inky Treasure Hunt and Coloring Book:  This is one I don’t have, to be honest, but I do want.  Here’s why it made the list.  I watched a friend color meticulously in this book over vacation with her lovely set of gel pens.  Watching her get meditative into her coloring made me want to find that spot, too, so she inspired me to get back into coloring.

I hope you have now found some diverse and interesting new coloring books to add to your own collections, or to perhaps be inspired to start your own coloring adventure.
