    1. A Disney Villains coloring book so you can ~get down with ya' bad self~ after a particularly stressful day.


    Promising review: "This is the coolest coloring book ever. My 12-year-old daughter and I can get lost in it! Pages and pages of villains. There’s also facts regarding Disney movies in the book. Solid book. Not paperback. Thick coloring pages. Designs, patterns, portraits! Just a great coloring book all around. If you're not sure about this purchase and are reading reviews like I won’t be disappointed!" —Amazon Customer

    Price: $12.77

    2. A coloring book filled with expletives to prevent you from taking your frustrations out on your roomie.


    Promising review: "When I started coloring in this book, I couldn't believe how funny and sarcastic it is! Seriously, you can't own this book and not laugh while coloring in it. The book measures 8 1/2 inches by 11 inches so the pages are regular printer paper size. There are two color test pages at the front of the book so you can test out your colored pencils or gel pens before you start coloring. There are 21 designs in all, each on their own separate page so you could tear them out to hang up, share with a friend, etc. Some designs have swear words in them while others have lots of sarcasm and funny pictures to accompany them! The paper used is somewhat thinner than other books I have but I just put some paper underneath the page so the gel pens don't bleed through. This is a great book for anyone who has a sarcastic side and loves to color." —Kristin B.

    Price: $5.24

    3. A Harry Potter coloring book that'll have you saying "accio colored pencils!" as soon as you get home from work.


    Promising review: "Such a fun, detailed coloring book! I finally understand the Adult Coloring Book hype. Very relaxing. They make your creative juices come alive! I have only colored the first three pages, but have enjoyed every minute. I have been using Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils to have vibrant colors that blend easily. I will be buying more coloring books in the future." —kbrbjb

    Price: $9.99

    4. A sloth-themed coloring book you'll love ~slowing~ down with.


    Promising review: "High quality and perfect for a sloth fan! Some pages are very detailed and others are more simple. Tons of choices depending on the mood you’re in." —JB

    Price: $6.99

    5. Or a Pokémon coloring book starring your favorite classic characters, a must-have for anyone who's been trying to ~catch 'em all~ since the '90s.


    Promising review: "Received the book today, and my son and stepdaughter loved it. The book has a lot of pages with all the different Pokémon. They were super excited and got to coloring right away even my husband!" —Leslie Barahona

    Price: $7.33

    6. An ocean-themed coloring book with stunning details you'll have to sea to believe.


    Promising review: "Compared to the other coloring books by Johanna Basford, this one is the most detailed. Some parts are so tiny I don't know how I won't go over the lines (but that's okay!) I just want to give a fair warning for people with arthritis or shakiness. In my opinion this is the most beautiful and stunning book. Usually I find maybe ten pages that I can't wait to color. But with this one I'm excited for them all." —Bexyrae

    Price: $13.07

    7. An official Bob's Burgers coloring book you can work on while rewatching your favorite episodes.


    Promising review: "This was a great purchase for our teen daughter who loves Bob's Burgers. She actually loves this and has spent a lot of time coloring in it —e which is great seeing how most kids these days are glued to their phone or laptops. Coloring is a great stress reliever as well and you have to use your imagination to choose colors and how you want your page to look. The pictures were great and there are a lot of choices." —Shelyn

    Price: $11.52

    8. A book of mandalas to color in for the ultimate way to unwind.


    Mandala coloring books are my go-to after a particularly rough day — something about them just helps my brain reset. Sooooo soothing.

    Promising review: "This coloring book is just about perfect. The paper is thick and strong and holds up well to almost anything. I have used dye markers, watercolor markers, alcohol markers, colored pencils, watercolor pencils, and I have even used watercolor paints. You can't do a wet on wet wash, but wet on dry works beautifully with only a little warping of the paper. The extra heavy covers and spiral binding are the final touch that make this my favorite coloring book ever." —ryem

    Price: $19.99

    9. A coloring book of Thomas Kinkade's Disney illustrations that'll bring a touch of ~magic~ into your me-time.


    Promising review: "This coloring book is absolutely stunning! A must have for all Disney and Thomas Kinkade fans alike! I love the colored paintings next to the line art. It provides inspiration if you're feeling a little overwhelmed with color choices. This is a really well put together coloring book!" —Jessica R

    Price: $9.41

    10. A Nicholas Cage–inspired coloring book you'll consider to be your very own ~national treasure~.


    Promising review: "Nicholas Cage shows people how to be people, he is the definition of a perfect human being and this activity book is a perfect cross section of what it means to be the big NC, meaning, what is perfection. 5 stars, 10/10, had I the funds, I would buy again." —KindleCustomer

    Price: $10.61

    11. Or a Nickelodeon coloring book so you can happily revisit your old pals from Hey Arnold! and Rugrats.


    Promising review: "I love love love this coloring book. The quality is amazing. Drawings are one-sided. Heavy markers bleed through the page, but don't seep through enough to ruin the next. But I love this and my boyfriend who used to laugh at me for getting back into coloring books is addicted to it as well. I might have to buy him his own copy so that I don't have to share mine." —sammy

    Price: $11.74

    12. A coloring book to help get you through anxious spells and motivate you to just be YOU.


    Promising review: "Of all the curse word coloring books out there and that I've purchased, this one is my favorite. I love its message and coloring in the white spaces in mostly black pages is different and gives a great effect. Sometimes the beautiful mandalas and paisleys and forest books are great, but this is a welcome addition to your collection, making you laugh and instilling a little positivity as you color in the most colorful way." —Annie

    Price: $5.99

    13. A Paint by Sticker book for a unique twist on your standard coloring experience.


    I have this book and can honestly say it was a fun way to mix up my coloring sessions. It made me nostalgic for the Tangram puzzles I used to do in elementary school as a kid.

    Promising review: "I'm loving this book! It's great to do while watching TV or when I need to kill time. I haven't had any issues with stickers sticking, but I've only done three so far. Some of the little stickers are tough to place, and some don't line up 'perfectly,' but it's still fun and looks great!!!" —Kelsey

    Price: $8.22

    14. A challenging coloring book that'll double as both a way to unwind with your crayons and a search party.


    Promising review: "I've colored in two of the spreads now and I LOVE this coloring book! For the most part the artist is thoughtful of the colorer, making sure the lines are clearly delineated between objects, which is amazing considering the level of detail involved! It is so much fun to do, and the drawings are just incredible! I found the paper and binding quality to be good also, the only problem I have is that the drawings cross over the middle and it is impossible to get the book flat, so coloring in the middle section is annoying!" —Elizabeth

    Price: $13.64

    15. An activity book any soon-to-be mom will love diving into to distract them from the fact they have to pee every five minutes.


    Promising review: "I bought a few of these books to give to pregnant friends. After flipping through the pages I was ACTUALLY laughing out loud AND wanting to be pregnant again (I'm not even kidding). Forget What to Expect When You're Expecting, this is the most useful and hilarious pregnancy book I've read. Plus it's an easy and cheap go-to for pregnant friends. If there is a human growing inside your body, you need this in your life." —Alisa Gillilan

    Price: $10.86

    16. A coloring book of lil' creatures that'll make you want to squeal because they're so cute while gasping because they're so vulgar.


    Promising review: "If you're debating whether or not to buy this...BUY IT! It is a combination of hilarious, yet utterly cute, little designs and the most creative cuss words and phrases you will ever see. Where there is a cute little donkey or a cute little panda, will come a slew of hilarity! A+ design!!" —Ana Barnes

    Price: $4.99

    17. Or this very tasteful book about cat butts to start coloring right ~meow~.


    Promising review: "Hilarious!! Perfect exchange gift at veterinary office party. We were practically in tears laughing over this. You can color each page independently and send it by mail to someone (has the trifold address area on the reverse side of each page)." —A. Crow

    Price: $5.99

    18. Or pages featuring a variety of cats and kittens, because one can never have too many coloring books. You feline me?


    Promising review: "I love this book. It is so fun with a wide variety of pictures. My only complaint is that the pages are double-sided. I would prefer single-sided and perforated so I could frame the great designs. Never fear, I’ve found a solution — I will just have to order another copy! I highly recommend" —Jill

    Price: $7.76

    19. A coloring book that'll once and for all prove that, though they may be mystical and sparkly, unicorns are jerks.


    Promising review: "This has to be my FAVORITE coloring book EVER!!! The images are simple and fun to color. This is definitely not an advanced coloring book and that's fine. It's cute and funny. The quality of her images are nice and the thickness of the paper is great for gel pens. The pages are single-sided, so if you decide to use markers then I suggest you place something behind each page." —Shanel Silva

    Price: $7.99

    20. A book filled to the brim with soothing illustrations of butterflies and flowers, perfect for temporarily forgetting how you pushed on a "pull" door in front of your crush last week.


    Promising review: "This is truly a very nice book to be completely enjoyed by adults of all ages. I find it incredibly relaxing to pass the time coloring away in it. It takes away any stress or tension that you may have had, and you find yourself almost in the state of meditation. No lie. Whatever you were worried about previously will seem like a thing of the past because you'll instead be thinking 'what color shall I use next," or 'should I frame this?' I would highly recommend it to others, especially those that need to relax. I have really noticed that I am sleeping better since I have started coloring!" —Darlen-De

    Price: $5.99

    21. An anatomy coloring book to help the person who is forever stressing and searching their symptoms on WebMD.


    Promising review: "What a great book and resource for any student or aspiring student of a career in health care. Literally the book is easy enough to understand that even a young teen would enjoy coloring these, not to say they are watered down in anyway. Get your self a decent set of color pencils because you are going to want a large variety of color." —The Grubb Show

    Price: $18.49

    22. A '90s-themed coloring book that'll have you sassily snapping in Z-formation while you choose whether to color a Ring Pop red or blue.


    Promising review: "Flipping through the pages of this book and reliving the '90s events, pop icons, and TV shows was a great way to spend an evening. On top of that the book holds hours of coloring fun, and I am looking forward to spending more nights coloring away. The illustrations have a cool style with great humor and parody that took me down memory lane of my own childhood growing up in the '90s." —Tim S.

    Price: $5.86

    23. A coloring book filled with illustrations of Taylor where you can color in that ~red lip, classic thing~ we ALL honestly like.


    Promising review: "Bought this as a white elephant gift and it was a hit. There are reviews that complain that some pictures don't look like Taylor Swift, but are you really buying this so you can color life-like pictures of Taylor's face? It's a fun book with pictures to color, interactive questions, and spaces to creatively draw your own pictures." —Michelle

    Get it from Amazon for $10.28.

    24. A Pusheen coloring book so delightful you'll want to hang all the pages you finish up on your fridge.


    Promising review: "The designs are really cute and make me chuckle every time I flip the page. I don't even like cats, but I LOVE Pusheen! I bought this coloring book as a gift for my sister, and I ended up loving it so much that I just HAD to have one for myself. The paper is great quality and there are tons of designs in the book from simple to detailed. I just pick one that I know I will have time for and then I get to coloring! A definite stress relief." —Valerie

    Price: $9.20

    25. A whimsical coloring book can inspire you to tap into your more creative side on a daily basis — go ahead, color the hedgehog hot pink if you want!


    Promising review: "The illustrations are interesting enough for adults but still whimsical, and range from nature scenes (mushrooms, birds) to farm animals (llamas, sheep). The book itself feels very high quality, but I would suggest putting something behind the pages if coloring with anything other than pencils, as they are a bit thin." —Jessie

    Price: $11.69

    26. A coloring book starring badass women like Dolly Parton and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, sure to provide you with extra motivation while you color.


    Promising review: "Absolutely love this. Cute compact size, but thick with pages full of cute, quirky drawings and activities. It includes tons of brilliant lady icons. I sent these to my girlfriends for Galentine's Day and they loooved it. 5/5!" —MegLama

    Price: $7.95

    27. Or a book filled with hip-hop icons like Kanye West, Ludacris, and Drake that'll pair nicely with your favorite playlist.


    Promising review: "I gave this as a gift to a friend who loves rap (old and new) and colors to relieve stress (he's 31 years old). He loved it and couldn't believe something like this even existed. He was flipping through the book and was blown away by who was in it." —Angela Johnson

    Price: $10.97

    28. A chalk-style botanical coloring book you can use to create a rustic masterpiece.


    Promising review: "Recently received this coloring book. Love love the black background. Using fluorescent markers and glitter pens make the pages striking. Will definitely continue looking for more of these books." —James Hill

    Price: $14.99

    29. A swoon-worthy coloring book studded with actual ~studs~ like George Clooney and Ryan Gosling that'll quickly become your most-prized possession.


    Promising review: "Got this for my girlfriend for Christmas. Pros: coloring book is really well done and quite amusing. Lots of activities and she seems to enjoy it because it's relaxing for her to color in hunks after a long day. Cons: coloring book made it even more abundantly clear that if my girlfriend ever meets Ryan Gosling, I'm toast." —kire717

    Price: $11.81

    30. A Vogue coloring book that would likely make even Anna Wintour crack a smile.


    This fashionable book features 26 archival magazine covers from 1912 to 1932!

    Promising review: "What an impressive book! I don't know now why I hesitated so long to order this book, it's absolutely fabulous and goes FAR ABOVE AND BEYOND MY EXPECTATIONS. The bright white paper that it's printed on is definitely more cardstock than paper. I will color it and pray that I don't make a huge disaster. LOL. Though the pictures are printed double sided, it is done in such a way that, if you were to use a medium and it bled through, you wouldn't destroy an fashions, only information regarding the fashion." —Colorista#1

    Price: $15.19

    31. Or a cozy coloring book in case you're in need of some new recipes to make you feel all warm 'n' fuzzy inside.


    Promising review: "So cute and fun! My daughter and I color the page while we discuss the recipe and how we are going to make it!" —kassi hill

    Price: $8.78

    32. A Bob Ross coloring book you can use to brighten your mood and color in your own ~happy little trees~ when you're feeling grumpy.


    Promising review: "Great pictures and quotes from Bob. The pictures are not so complex that they take an eternity to finish; they’re just right. I bought two more as gifts and the recipients really enjoyed them as well!" —Reviewer

    Price: $12.71

    33. A coloring book of mid-century modern home decor that'll soothe your anxious mind while also helping you plan how to redecorate your home.


    Promising review: "This is a step back to the '50s and '60s. Growing up during that time there were things in this book I remember seeing. The book is a real hoot — I mean that in a good way — and it was so much fun to recreate through color a forgotten era. Remember the starburst clock? how about atomic curtains? Those things are in this book." —olechrl

    Price: $4.97

    34. A Mommy and Me coloring book you and your little one can work on together while listening to "Baby Shark" for the millionth time.


    Promising review: "I love these coloring books! I bought two, one for each of my boys. The illustrations are simple enough to color but unique enough to hang. The quality of the book itself is great. This isn't a normal coloring book, the front has a super nice almost matte feel and the paper is thicker. Each illustration has its own page so no need to pick a side. Pages can easily be taken out. My little zoologist also loves it because bunches of animals are shown from narwhals, walrus, owls, and even a unicorn." —Foxandthefawn

    Price: $9.33

    35. A Jane Austen coloring book anyone with sense or sensibility would want to own.


    Promising review: "This book is great for stress relief. Lots of pretty scenes, pretty dresses, and all Jane Austen–themed! I bought as a Christmas gift for myself and have enjoyed it in the evening with a cup of tea. The paper is good quality and the drawings are not TOO detailed to easily fill in the color. Book is not as large as many coloring books. Perfect for the Jane Austenite in your life." —C. Heather McFarland

    Price: $11.22

    36. A Golden Girls coloring book you'll love working on while devouring a cheesecake and humming "Thank You For Being A Friend."


    Promising review: "I absolutely love this coloring book. No, not every picture is of the girls, but that is ok by me. The ones that are of the Golden Girls characters are so beautifully drawn, the likeness to the characters is really spot on. I've enjoyed coming home every night after work and coloring — I will be sad when I'm all done with the book (which will take awhile as it's quite intricate and there are many pages to color)." —Blondie47

    Price: $11.02

    37. And a coloring book inspired by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, so you can shade in their beautiful features why anxiously waiting to learn more about their baby boy.


    I have this coloring book (yes, really) and it was super fun to color in while watching their wedding at 4:30 a.m.! What better way to unwind from a long week than coloring pictures of Meghan and Harry while watching The Crown?

    Promising review: "I love that the pages are perforated and printed on one side of the page. I also love each of the images! They all look easy to color, but are still intricate." —Andrea Cooper

    Price: $6.53

    Now take a breath, channel your inner–Bob Ross, and go to town on your new coloring book.
