#Review : Coloring Novels (TM) by @emilyanngirdner + $15 #Giveaway

Welcome friends!! It's been a long time since I've picked up pen (so to speak) and written a review!  Life has gotten beyond hectic, but that's another blog post!  When life is beyond stressful, a good book is normally my solution to escape into!  But some days, even the best of books can't turn off the worries.  Did you know that coloring is a proven tool to help cope with stress and anxiety?  I personally LOVE coloring!  The entire idea behind these books is just genius! Not only do you get to read a fabulous old tale, it's redone with pictures for you to color throughout!

I was given Beauty and the Beast to review.  A tale as old as time....  and one of my favorites!  The beginning & end of the book is filled with pages to color at will. Once the story begins, there are pictures here and there throughout it that go along with the story! I LOVE this idea because I'm always wondering if I'm picturing part of the story like the author was imagining it! 

If you love coloring and stories like me, take a moment to check these out! You won't be disappointed! 
** Note, coloring should be done with colored pencils or perhaps a very sharp crayon (I do love crayons!).  Gel pens or sharpies may bleed thru. **
