Pop Manga Coloring Book Review

Are you an adult who likes to color but don't want to squint trying to color in a tiny mandala? Want to color something cute but not kiddish? Well then, let me introduce you to the Pop Manga Coloring Book by Camilla D'errico.

This coloring book contains beautiful adorable images to color. With girls dressed in steampunk like costumes, bizarre little creatures and artistically drawn designs, this book is a blast to look at and to color in. I'm almost afraid to color the pages for fear of not doing these images justice. I have to admit that I did go to her site and look at some of her art colored in so that I could try to color her art like it should be. Below is my attempt. :)

The book cover says it is "A surreal journey through a cute, curious, bizarre, and beautiful world" and I could not agree more. I would gladly recommend this coloring book to anyone who wants to color something fantastic. I'm even thinking of buying a few to give out as gifts for Christmas.

Does her art look familiar to you? She is a well respected artist on sites like DeviantArt:  Love her art and want to see more of it? Check out her website. You can buy prints and other items at her site as well.

The Rooftop Growing Guide

The Rooftop Growing Guide by Annie Novak is an interesting book that provides plenty of information on how to grow gardens in confined spaces. Even if you aren't wanting to grow on top of a roof it is a useful read.  It provides tips and advice on how to grow in containers, understanding nutrients, planning your garden, etc.

The book has plenty of beautiful photos and well drawn illustrations. The charts provided are helpful and easy to read.

I'll admit when I first heard of this book I really thought it wasn't going to be a great read. But I really enjoyed this book and it should prove quite handy next year when I hope to have some raised garden beds in my back yard.

If you are looking to set up a small but productive garden, I would suggest reading this book.

The Time Chamber by Daria Song: A review

Adult coloring books are all the rage right now.  It appears that we adults are so stressed that we have to take a time out and color for a while to destress. If you are looking for a beautiful coloring book, might I recommend The Time Chamber: A Magical Story and Coloring Book by Daria Song.

This is a beautiful adult coloring book full of detailed drawings. If you love to color intricate magical items, this is the book for you.

Some of the pages are so lovely that I am afraid to color them for fear of messing them up. I highly recommend either colored pencils or artist pens/markers to color these pages as there are many fine lines, details, and designs. Crayons really won't work unless you have some very sharp crayons.

Not only is this a coloring book, but it tells a story too. So grab what you like to color with and start on this magical journey into The Time Chamber.

*I was given this book free to review. All opinions in this blog are mine and mine alone. I was not paid to review or promote this book. I do that happily because it is a work of art.*
