Adult coloring books are all the rage now. I’m totally content coloring in my daughter’s Strawberry Shortcake coloring book so never really found the need to get my own “adult” version. I remember during my senior year in high school, my Psychology teacher would have us bring in our own coloring books and crayons and have coloring sessions during class period to help us de-stress. It was great because I always loved to color and it really did work. It was funny to look around a classroom of high schoolers totally into their coloring and it would be so quiet in there! I eventually wondered if the teacher was really doing this for our benefit or for hers. Either way, I enjoyed it and no one ever complained.
I came across some geeky adult coloring books one day while scrolling through my newsfeed. I was like Whaaa?!Whaaaaaa?! Where have these been my whole life?! Yep, totally geeked out and the next thing I knew I was finding more and more of them. Lucky for you, I’ve compiled some here for you! I need them in my life but not sure if I’d ever have the heart to actually color in them. Could you?

These are definitely different than any other coloring books I’ve seen. Thanks for sharing them!
I agree and you are so welcome!
Can you believe that I haven’t gotten into the adult coloring book craze yet? I don’t know what I’m waiting for but I need to join in and these are perfect. Especially that Harry Potter one.
These coloring books will definitely get you into the ‘adult’ coloring book craze!
Definitely some neat ones in there! I used to color in basic kids books, too, but have started with the grown up versions. I’m treating myself to a full set of Prismacolor colored pencils with part of my income tax return just for this.
Nice! Prismacolor pencils are great! My teen loves to draw and requested them a few years ago. She loves them.
There’s some awesome books in this collection. Though I have to say that I have Enchanted Forest already and I’m not a fan of it. :/
Thanks for the heads up, Ashley. Any particular reason why?
Thank you for these links! I think I am going to get my hubby the JRR Tolkien book!!
Awesome!! You are very welcome!
I recently purchased an adult coloring book thinking my older granddaughter would like it. but I have started coloring in it myself. I find it releases a lot of stress and anxiety that I currently deal with. Thanks for sharing.
You are very welcome! Our teen has some of them and I like to claim a page or two sometimes.
Wonderful! Love these coloring books. Thanks for sharing.
You are very welcome! Thanks for stopping by!
These are so different I just love them.I’ll be shopping!
Yes!! Happy coloring! 🙂
these coloring books look so fun and remind me of the paint by number oil paint kids from childhood
Been wanting one adult coloring books. Hope I can win one soon.
My son would maybe like the Star Wars Art Therapy Coloring Book.
These are so cool! My daughter is into these. She has an Alice in Wonderland one that she loves.
i love these coloring books. I color all the time when I need a little me time. It is very relaxing.
I’ve been hearing about adult coloring books for a while but haven’t gotten one yet. I think I like the Enchanted Forest coloring book the best.
OMG ! All of them. I love this post. I didn’t know they had all these fabulous coloring books. It’s grest therapy. I’ve colored with my kids then grandkids. And now I’m getting my own. 🙂 Thanks for this post.
I haven’t colored in years, but some of these adult coloring books look amazing. I think I’d enjoy them!
Would want the Game of Thrones coloring book
These look so cool! Thanks for sharing 🙂
These look like fun! I’ll have to get one someday when my son starts to color. 😉
Coloring is a good way to relieve stress and keep the kids busy as well.
I love coloring with my grandsons so I know this would be fun & relng for me.
I have many adult coloring books but none like these. I love the Star Wars and Harry Potter coloring books. Awesome!
I want the star wars and Harry Potter coloring books.
I would love the Harry Potter and Game of Thrones coloring books! How fun are these! 🙂
I love these especially the Frozen one and the Harry Potter one! These look like so much fun!
I have the Steampunk Fashion and Johanna Basford books (she’s got three, I’m not as fond of her Under the Sea or whatever book). The Steampunk book is okay – it’s a little simplistic. I adore the Basford books, they’re very imaginative and fun and you can either be traditional with your colors or go wild. There’s plenty of variety between fine drawing and coloring in bigger areas too which I find is important – some days I want to work on tiny details, some days I don’t. If you do a lot of blending, there’s room for that too. I don’t really use pens so maybe someone who does would have a different opinion but these are my favorites. I’m almost done with all three and I’m weird enough that I might buy another set.
Basford has a daily calender coming out later this month. I’m not sure if they’re new or old designs but I’m looking forward to it. I’ll go be quiet now. lol
I love that they make these now! I used to buy kids coloring books that had a little more challenging pictures to color. It was embarrassing to pull out such a kiddish coloring book when the kids weren’t around. Now I can confidently sit at a Drs appointment and relax.
I have 2 kids out of college that would flip over these.
I started coloring last winter. It really is relaxing. Now I want the Game Of Thrones & Harry Potter coloring books.
These look like so much fun!!
WOW!! so fun! I’d love to color the Game of THrones one.
my grandson got the harry potter one on his 11th birthday
I have to admit when I first heard of Adult Coloring books, I thought of the human anatomy! I particularly don’t like coloring that much anymore, because of my hands. Sometimes I try to color with my grandkids to have fun with them.
I thought at first it would seem odd for grownups to be doing this. However, it is quite relaxing.
wow I love that outlander one, that is so cool, my favorite show. I used to color all the time when I worked at a call center to help pass the time, that was long ago no adult coloring books then. Glad they have them now.
I am into the Adult coloring Craze. I love the designs and all the different colors you can use. These books you shared are awesome. They are telling me to buy them! Lol~
They really have some really unique adult coloring books for sale now!!
These are very cool–I esp. love Harry Potter and this is so cute!
All of these coloring books look wonderful! It is amazing how coloring is a hit with adults now. I always enjoyed coloring with my kids and I would like the Mermaids, Fairies & Fantasy: Coloring Books for Grown-Ups, Adults.
I LOVE COLORING BOOKS NOW I CAN STILL FEEL LIKE A ADULT BUT HAVE FUN LIKE A KID AGAIN
You should add the Walking Dead Coloring Book to that list 😉
Thanks, Chris! They weren’t out yet when I wrote this but I am adding them, and a few more, now. 🙂
These are definitely different than any other coloring books I’ve seen!
These coloring books are awesome. I know my daughter that’s 22 would love some of those.
We love adult coloring books here. My children and i actually do some together and we have coloring contest
I haven’t tried the adult coloring books yet. These are really intricate. I like them.
Not like the kind I buy, but my daughter in law would like them.
