What's New

Coloring Books – New Releases – April 2022

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.

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 area below

There are a lot of books that are available for pre-order that I will include here as well

let’s go …

About the author

coloringqueen

I'm Lea and I love everything to do with coloring! If it is a coloring book, a poster or even a bookmark that you can color in, I'm all over it. Of course, a girl has to have some pencils, markers, gelly rolls, pastels and what not to make those pictures pretty and I love those as well.

Whilst my coloring style lacks skill, I am enthusiastic and focused on enjoying the moment and having fun.

  • Thank you very much for featuring The Beauty of Black Mermaids Coloring Book. Unfortunately, Amazon’s “Look Inside” feature is still not showing my interior. However, if you are in the continental United States, I’ll gladly send you a complimentary copy.

    Take care,

    • Hopefully, the “look inside” feature will be fixed soon. I am in Australia so a bit out of your way 🙂
