This is not intended to be an exhaustive list of all coloring books being released. Bear in mind, that there are hundreds and hundreds of books being released every month. I cannot possibly keep up with all of them!
This list of new releases is only books that have taken my fancy, and that I think that you may like as well. Due to the high cost of postage for most readers, this list will usually not include International releases.
Many of these books I will be reviewing as part of my coloring book reviews.
Please also bear in mind that different countries often have different publication dates. Something may be released in the US earlier than in the UK or vice versa.
If you know of a new release that you think I may be interested in leave a comment in the comments area below
One of the things that it is a relief to my wallet for December is that there is not a lot of coloring books that have taken my fancy. To be honest, I expected that coloring book artists would produce far more books for the November and December period. Traditionally, quarter 4 of the calendar year – September onwards is when most retail sales are made. The coloring book new releases that I fancy, are pretty slim. My bank account though is very thankful for that!
The other surprise to me is that there are not that many Christmas themed cooring books being released this year. I’m not complaining mind you, just stating that it may be easier to preapre your Christmas wish list than you may have originally thought.
Let’s go …..
Mermaids Coloring Book: An Aquatic Art Adventure
The third coloring book from the talented Jasmine Becket-Griffith. It follows the same format and sizing as her previous coloring books but the line art is slightly different. You can see my review of the Mermaids Coloring Book here.

Archie’s Coloring Book
As soon as I seen this coloring book I knew I had to buy it. Both hubby and I have such fond memories of reading Archie comics when we were younger that it is a true sentimental purchase. I can’t wait to see Archie and the gang in coloring book format. Hopefully, it will be enough to persuade hubby to give coloring a go as well.

Moonlit Vale: Art and Coloring Book by Annie Stegg Gerard
The book that has taken my breath away is a new coloring book artist but a well known artist. Annie Stegg started out in Inktober inking a drawing each day. Each drawing was more breathtaking than the next. It wasn’t long before she was convinced that these drawings should be shared with the world in a beautiful coloring book. Not only, did she immediately embrace this idea but she has put together an outstanding marketing package for the book.
Annie made the smart decision, for an artist with her fan base, to launch the coloring book on Kickstarter. This allowed her to offer quality printing without any upfront print costs. In addition, depending on the number of stretch goals reached fans had a win with more pages being added to the book. A true win-win. It is no surprise that her Kickstarter goal was reached in about 10 minutes. The coloring book will be produced on quality paper and includes other items, depending on what you purchase. You can check out the campaign here but it is ending soon.
Happy coloring x
