We’re bookworms. We love a good read, a good flip-through, and certainly a good coffee table book. We’ve noticed a trend lately and can’t help but call it out. There are so many kid-inspired books for adults! Here, we’ll discuss a few standouts, while there are still plenty of holiday shopping days left to snag them.

Things I’ve Said To My Children

Anyone in need of a good laugh (or several) will appreciate this book. Leave it on the coffee table during a dinner party and you won’t be able to stop guests from reading it aloud. One of the funniest reads we’ve seen in 2015, or any year.  Buy it here!

Vive Le Color! India

One trend that team domino can’t stop talking about is coloring books for grown ups. We’ve been known to take afternoon breaks among their pages, quietly staying in the lines and relaxing. They’re said to be wonderful stress relievers, and we can’t help but agree.  Buy it here!

Deep Dark Fears

A must-read, this book features reader-submitted fears sent in to the author’s tumblr. It’s wild (and hilarious) what can scare us most.  Buy it here!
