    1. Holy Mother Forking Shirtballs makes you kinda feel like you're in the Good Place with its clean take on classic curse words. Now all you need is some frozen yogurt.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Features single-sided prints so you don't have to choose one side over the other!

    Promising review: "Everyone who saw this LOVED it! I got it for a white elephant gift for work — my roommate tried to steal it immediately after it arrived. Everyone at the work party loved it and it's work-appropriate. Can't get the actual swear word coloring books for work parties, probably frowned upon. Great quality paper and tears out easily to hang at your desk!" —Amanda

    2. Fucking Adorable – Cute Critters with Foul Mouths presents some angelic, sweet animals in a hysterically sweary way.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    This book has 30 single-sided coloring pages!

    Promising review: "I've gotten a few of these adult coloring books for myself as well as for gifts for friends, and this is my favorite one so far. The combination of the cute critters and the (sometimes really) nasty words is the perfect combination of nice and naughty, and so much fun to color. I realize that some people will probably be offended by things like this, and they would be wise to look elsewhere. For the rest of us, this is comedy gold. These adult coloring books, along with a pack of glitter gel pens, make a great inexpensive gift for like-minded individuals. I like to keep a few of these kinds of coloring books and glitter gel pen sets around for last-minute gifts. You can't beat it for around $10 for both, and Amazon has a great selection." —PS

    Get it from Amazon for $4.75.

As I deviously put it in my cart and sent it to her, I knew that her poop-filled book would arrive soon in all its poop glory." —Katherine Keaveney

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    Promising review: "I purchased this for my boss as part of her Christmas gift. She's old school and a doctor so I was a tiny bit worried she might find it in poor taste. She loved it!!

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    7. Go F*ck Yourself, I'm Coloring takes colorful language right to paper — as a proud owner of this book, I can promise you it's truly a GREAT way to blow off steam.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    This book has 26 single-sided pages, and comes with a digital PDF inside the book so you can print-off more pages to do with friends and family! It's so great, I wrote about this hilarious coloring book.

    Promising review: "Love this book!!!! I have two boys ages 4 and 6, and I found this extremely cathartic when I needed to get out of my head or get back in it, depending on the day. Really brings you back to your roots so to speak. 🙏🙏🙏" —Edward L Hyman

    8. Sloths Who Smoke & Drink makes you fall in love with the amazing animal even MORE — obviously sloths really drink tequila, they're cool like that.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    This small but mighty book contains 14 single-sided illustrations and a test page for trying out your colors.

    Promising review: "This is probably my favorite purchase this year. The illustrations are some of the coolest I have seen and it’s so fun to color! Very unique pages that I haven’t seen elsewhere and I plan to give this as gifts to many co-workers and family members. You don’t even need to like sloths to like this coloring book. It has everything that adults love or should love, and is a great stress relief from auditing." –AmazonLove15

    Get it from Amazon for $6.71.

    9. Unicorns Are Jerks teaches us the magical creatures aren't all they're cracked up to be. But, not in a bad way! IDK, I mean they seem super cool and edgy actually, and I want to be best friends with one.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I had no idea that unicorns were such jerks until I read this book! For years I have been operating under the false belief that unicorns were wonderful, beautiful, magical creatures who fart rainbows, however this book has revealed the truth. By way of very well-drawn pictures on nice coloring paper this book has revealed that unicorns eat your food without asking, monopolize the ball pit, and dine and dash. I recommend to everyone that they buy this coloring book if for no other reason than the wonderful humor aspect." —prea66

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Features single-sided prints!

    Promising review: "This book will make you laugh out loud. I color to relieve stress so it's perfect to color what I was thinking anyway. Like how sometimes people just need a 'high five to the face,' or 'I already want to take a nap tomorrow,' or (to my nosy neighbor, Margie) 'I found your nose, it was in my business again.' Makes a great gift for the clever person in your life with a sense of humor!" —Eve

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    11. When Life Gets Complicated, I Wine is best colored with a glass of wine set next to you — actually, it's illegal to color in this book without drinking wine at the same time. Sorry, I don't make the rules.

    Amazon

    Contains 32 pages of wine-themed illustrations, and comes with a 12-piece colored pencil set to get you started!

    Promising review: "This was included in a birthday gift for a friend that is going through some very difficult times. She loved it. She sits with her mother every night in a nursing home and with this coming complete with colored pencils, it was the perfect time-filler, and the great illustrations and sayings made her laugh." —Special K

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    12. Haters Gonna Hate brings you back up when the h8ers have got ya down. They're not worth your time, but this coloring book sure is.

    13. Cat Butts combines two wonderful things — felines and their booties. It'll have you saying "meWOW!"

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My 14-year-old picked this out for his dad for Christmas! It's hilarious! The artwork is a treat for cat lovers! Especially when you're about as mature as a 12-year-old! The whole family got a good laugh going through this coloring book. It is a great, funny gift for any cat lover who enjoys a good fart/butt joke!" —RJ Cherry

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    14. And Dog Butt gives you doggo-lovers the chance to color in some behinds, too! We couldn't put in one and not the other; we're not monsters.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Printed on single-sided paper!

    Promising review: "My friend bought this for my birthday, and it is the worst and best gift I've ever gotten. The creepiness of looking at countless dog anuses is only trumped by the sensual look the dogs give you as your eyes meet their gaze. And then you're like, hey, I have to color in this anus. Which color should I use? 10/10." —J

    Get it from Amazon for $6.56.

    15. Eat A Bag Of D*cks allows you to simply color in all of the things you WISH so badly you could say to the faces of your enemies, but for now, you can just think of them in your mind while exerting your energy towards this.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Illustrations are printed on single-sided paper.

    Promising review: "I think this is one of my favorite adult coloring books. It's definitely one I pull out when I am in a crappy mood. It's guaranteed to put a smile on my face. The pages are full of things to color and are humorous. I might just send some colored pages to random people for the fun of it." —Amber Goleb

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    16. I Run On Coffee, Sarcasm, and Lipstick makes you nod your head in agreement at all of the comical pages in this book — we love relatable humor more than we love people!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Printed on single-sided paper!

    Promising review: "This book is my first adult coloring book and it didn't disappoint. The design detail is very intricate and takes a steady hand. I find the concentration coupled with my favorite podcasts has become a good way to wind down after work. Also, the pages are not two-sided so coloring with markers will not ruin the pages. I'd definitely buy another book from this series." —SonicBlush

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    17. Married Life gives anyone with a significant other a platform to lightheartedly express their frustrations over some of their quirks.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Features single-sided prints!

    Promising review: "My husband enjoyed getting this as a gift. It definitely reflects more traditional gender-roles and some of the pictures are a bit too simple for coloring book enthusiasts, but overall it is funny and offers a good number of pictures that appeal to fans of adult coloring books. I think most couples who have been together for a number of years will be able to find some very relatable images." —Susan Cregg

    Get it from Amazon for $8.14.

    18. 50 Shades Of Bullsh*t contains black background pages with lovely sweary masterpieces just waiting to be brought to life.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Contains single-sided prints on beautiful black sheets of paper! It also comes with a digital PDF of the book inside as well as a link to receive the illustrator's last book for free.

    Promising review: "This coloring book is the best!! It beats all of the other boring coloring books that I've used before. There's something about coloring in swear words that instantly makes me feel better. I've been dealing with a lot of anger lately and this is one of the best remedies that I've found so far. The black pages are great because when I mess up, it's not even noticeable. Thank you for this amazing book!!" —Rachel

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    19. Have Yourself A Sweary Little Christmas provides holiday fun year-round — it may earn you a spot on the naughty list, but I think it's worth it.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Printed on single-sided paper with black patterned reverse pages to minimize colors bleeding-through.

    Promising review: "I got this as a white elephant gift to exchange at the party because I thought it would be fun. It turned out that two ladies were fighting over it and thought it was hysterical. That alone was worth buying it and bringing it to the party, and it's very well-made for hours of quality fun." —Sarah Wayne

    Get it from Amazon for $5.24.

    20. Awkward Family Photos gives a much-needed chuckle, while realizing yeah, maybe your own family isn't as awkward as you thought... or maybe they're more awkward, that's a discovery for you to find.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Contains 53 single-sided pages!

    Promising review: "Coloring is therapeutic, and why not do it to something that will make you laugh your butt off while doing so? Honestly, I think it's hilarious to unwind after a long day, grab a beer, and color a little bit! I love flipping through the pages and just looking at all the pictures. You can add your own twist to the coloring and make it as realistic or trippy as possible. It's so easy to lose yourself in the frames around each of the pictures, there is so much detail there!" —akim

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.
