Game of Thrones Colouring Book… not very mindful

Colouring this in WOULD give me nightmares

I don’t know whether you’ve noticed but adult colouring books seem to be everywhere at the moment. My friend recently bought one for her partner, and there seemed to be a really wide array of them available (I think she went for something about dinosaurs with day jobs in the end).

I think that it must have a lot to do with a growing trend in mindfulness, because shortly before I went on maternity leave, my employer had started running lunchtime colouring in sessions to promote staff well-being as a part of the Mind, Body and Spirit month we have every June.

So I’m not sure whether to be surprised to read that there will be a Game of Thrones colouring book. On the one hand, I can imagine lots of adults buying it and it would make a great novelty present (I’m still waiting for A Game of Scones: All Men Must Dine to come out) on the other… I’m not sure how mindful it would be to colour in some of the horrible scenes. I’m pretty sure you’d soon run out of red pencil with all the blood and I don’t want to know how you’d recreate the horrible blue of the white walkers’ eyes. I’ve actually had nightmares about those.

What do you think?
