I made it back from Tampa in one piece (I am the type of driver that gets distracted from boredom). I stopped and did some clothing shopping on the way back. Last year I waited too late to get my spring t-shirts and they had a pitiful selection. Due to my allergies I have to wear 100% cotton items (or as close to 100% as I can get). I now have a good variety in a rainbow of colors!
I have been hearing so much about this new adult coloring book craze that I thought I would get a book and check it out. The pictures in Cats in Paris (A Magical Coloring Book) are just adorable. The first twelve pages are the cats in Paris. Then the pages go to Home Sweet Home. These images are much simpler (not as detailed or elaborate). At the back there are some cat stamp images (like postage stamps). The Home Sweet Home images are much easier to color than the Cats in Paris images. The paper is thick and high quality. I would stick with colored pencils or adult crayons. I do not think I would use watercolor pencils, markers, or watercolors (since the pages are double-sided). There is also a little story about the cats in Paris (seeing the bookshop, the cathedral, etc.). The cover is paperback, but thick. It is hard to hold open, though, when coloring (that is the only drawback with this book). If you are in need of a little stress relief, try Cats in Paris! I wish the whole book had been the Cats in Paris images. They are just lovely with great details. I was disappointed that it was such a small portion of the book. I give Cats in Paris 3.75 out of 5 stars. I think the book would have been better with a different binding (to make it easier to color). You can obtain the book on Amazon for under $10 (check out the new and used seller section).
I received a complimentary copy of Cats in Paris from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review.
I am currently reading The Blue Hour by Douglas Kennedy. I hope you have a great Fat Tuesday! Enjoy today, take care, and Happy Reading!
