Colouring Books For Adults

You may have noticed that there has been a huge increase in colouring books aimed towards adults with more intricate designs with thinner spaces to colour. I am a massive fan of colouring in. In fact I have a few kids one including a Disney & Dora the Explorer one which I love colouring in and giving them different hair colours and mixing it up a bit. However I wanted something a little more challenging and super pretty. I am a huge fan of patterns

I was browsing Amazon one night (I do this more than I care to admit - So many DVDs I need) when I saw this Millie Marotta's Animal Kingdom - A Colouring Book Adventure for only £4. I ordered it along with some felt pens and a couple of DVDs (I cant resist, its an illness). 

This colouring book is one of the prettiest things I have ever seen. The designs are gorgeous and the paper is really nice quality. Some of the pages even have room for you to add your own doodles to. Perfect for all you creative types.

My only issue with this colouring book is that because some of the lines are so intricate and I DO NOT want to go out of the lines (5 year old me would be so angry & disappointed with myself) that it can be a little bit stressful making it perfect. However, this means that it distracts me perfectly from my pain and anything else that is stressing me out. I'd rather stress out over a colouring book than something I have no control over. 

For my birthday I also got these 2 amazing colouring books 
- Mer-World Problems
- Unicorns are Jerks

These are the best colouring books ever. They are so funny plus you cant really go wrong with mermaids and unicorns. My friend also had a dinosaur ones. These are perfect for those of you who can't cope with the stress and concentration of the thin lined ones. They still offer perfect distraction.

My equally Disney obsessed friend also got me a frozen colouring book. I love how all my friends buy me colouring books. They're so awesome

Are you a fan of the colouring book trend?

Do you prefer the intricate or bigger designs?
