The Lovely Charlotte over at Orion sent me 3 new colourings books, Colour Me Mindful by Anastasia Catris and they are Birds, Tropical and Underwater.
I loved each colouring book they all had so many different beautiful pictures to colour in!
Colouring books have became the new craze for adults lately and I love it and I especially love the Colour Me Mindful ones! It was great when I was home alone, some music on the background and I just sat down and coloured them in, they really will relaxing! Plus they come in small sizes so they are easy to just put in your bag and take them on your travels and plus they are adorable.
I can't suggest these enough if you just want to sit back and relax!

So since it's August tomorrow (when the hell did this happen?!) I thought I would do my 5 favourite books of 2015 so far!
I know 5 isn't a lot, considering how much I've read this year so far but these 5 have been in my mind since I read them and if you haven't read them yet, what are you waiting for?!
5. The Baby by Lisa Drakeford!
This was an awesome story. We have 5 characters and each section in the book is from their POV with dealing with their friend having a baby at a young age and it was just wonderful. Lisa really captured each character and write a fabulous story, I cannot wait for the next one!
4. This Is Not A Love Story by Keren David!
I adored this story! I wont say too much if you haven't read it but I really think this was one of the best YA stories I have read. With all the twist in it, it just made it that more fantastic!
3. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard!
This was such a brilliant fantasy book! I loved every second of it. All the characters, the story-line, the descriptions where just amazing! I cannot wait for the sequel!
2. Just The Way You Are by Lynsey James!
Now and again I love a good romance story and this one has topped the list for me. The main girl, Ava, used to receive love letters in college then they stopped, now she's older she has started to get them again and wants to find out who they are from, it was a funny romantic story that everyone needs to read!
And my favourite book of 2015 is -
1. The Version Of Us by Laura Barnett!!
This was a fantastic story! I read it awhile ago and I'm pretty sure I talk about it constantly because it was that brilliant. In this story we follow Jim and Eva and 3 different versions of their lives of what if all these different things happened! I enjoyed it so much and it was so different from any book I've read so if you haven't read this yet I suggest you do!
