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
Good News and Bad News
First the good news! In November I am going to save a few pennies because there are very few books that are being released this month that have caught my eye. It might be the same for you as well! Now for the bad news ….a lot of my favorite Korean and Japanese coloring books are available for a lot cheaper than what I usually pay. The bad news is, of course, that you may blow your November coloring budget on these beauties instead! See the end of the post for the gorgeous books that you could buy or ask Santa for!
There are a lot of books that are available for pre-order that I will include here as well
let’s go …
