Colour Us British: 2017 Edition

An adult colouring book is the perfect stocking filler. It also doubles up as an activity you can quietly engage in once the big family dinner is eaten and everyone is kind of sick of talking to each other or your little sister has insisted on putting on a terrible film you don’t want to watch, bur you also don’t want to make a scene and leave the room. Instead, whip out the pencils and mentally travel to the UK with one of these 2017 colouring books.

She loves books almost as much, though, and hopes to see her novel on the shelves in the not-too-distant future.     Blog: Claire in DC Twitter: @ClaireLyman
