Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel (or, in other words, SPOILERS).
I have never participated in coloring in an adult coloring book. I know Ivana has several and she loves them. When I was waiting at BEA, an assistant to an author approached me and asked if I’d like to try an adult coloring book. She even offered the authors to sign it for me. I figured I’d get to talk to the authors and see what inspired them and if their book was the same as all the rest.
The authors were very nice. I looked through their book and I was rather inspired myself. Instead of pages to just color, there were inspirational quotes. Oprah Winfrey, Audrey Hepburn and Helen Keller were some of the names of women I recognized. Each page has decoration to color on the left side and the quote. On the right side, the whole page is covered in art. The art isn’t child-like nor is it so complicated that it’s overwhelming.
After I finish this book, I will keep it to look at over and over again because the quotes are awesome and the artwork is fantastic. There are no rules in this book. I get to decide the colors, decide if I want to add elements myself and the best part is I get to feel good looking at my finished project.
Some adult coloring books turn me off, but this one….there is something about it. Relaxing? Meditative? Sure. Fun? Most definitely.
