A few months ago I was in the midst of one major reading slump. I always read what I feel like reading and never force myself to read anything I’m not excited about or interested in, which has made reading slumps a rare occurrence. But sometimes the mind just doesn’t want to focus on a story and needs a vacation. Since books were not appealing at the time I was searching for something else to keep me entertained, and in an effort to keep myself from binge-watching Netflix, I ended up discovering colouring books for adults. Wait, what?! This blew me away and made me absolutely giddy. I loved colouring books as a child, but with adulthood that somehow stopped being a thing to do. Until now! The whole concept is brilliant, and when the mind needs to cool off for a little bit a good colouring book is all you need.
With some research I ended up purchasing Johanna Basford’s Secret Garden. It is a lovely book full of amazing designs that are beautifully done.
I would very much recommend this book, along with any other ones by Johanna Basford as her work is quite exceptional. Just sit back, relax, and colour. 🙂
PS. I have found it to be a great activity WHILE binge-watching Netflix because, who am I kidding?
