December 2018 Coloring Book Releases

My monthly round up of the coloring books to be released that I am looking forward to

This post contains affiliate links you can use to purchase the product. If you buy a book using that link, I will receive a small commission. This does not affect the price that you pay. Your support is very much appreciated x

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  area below

A Merry Little Christmas Book

Fans of Jane F. Hankin’s coloring books will be pleased to know that she now has a digital PDF of her latest coloring book.    This is a fabulous option because sometimes the shipping of  some coloring books, depending on where you live, can outweigh the cost of the book.     I am a huge fan of digital coloring books as they offer a lot of opportunity.  You can print on whatever paper you fancy and you can print as many times as you like.    Jane’s Merry Little Christmas book features 10 illustrations in her distinctive style.

About the author


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.
