There is something about coloring that just sets my mind at ease. It’s so soothing. It would appear that a lot of people agree with me, given the recent rise in popularity of adult coloring books! I own quite a few adult coloring books, and have quite a few more on my wishlist. I am convinced that there is a coloring book for every adult. Grab your colored pencils and your coffee, then grab a few of these to build a collection of adult coloring books to love. You’ll thank me later.
A Collection of Adult Coloring Books to Love
Stress Less Coloring Books
I own quite a few of the Stress Less coloring books. My favorites are the Stress Less Paisley and Stress Less Flower. They are so fun to color in.
Others that I plan to add to my collection include the Joyful Patterns and the Tranquil Patterns. Honestly, though, I’d love one of each on my shelf!

Faith Related Coloring Books
I find creativity and inspiration in my faith. These faith related coloring books are amazing. It is so fun to spend part of devotional time in wonder of grace as we color.
Scripture based coloring books are some of my favorites because of the affirming truth. It is, though, a bit harder to find quality adult coloring books with Scripture.
Sometimes you just need a positive message for your day. You’ll find a ton of those in these inspirational coloring books.

Working on a page from these coloring books of cities, both real and imagined, is extremely calming. Sometimes I color them in realistic colors, as they would appear in a photo. Other times I color them in vibrant hues that are fun and make the image appear more abstract. My husband bought me the Fantastic Cities one, and I lurve it.

The animal coloring books are favored by my kiddos. I must confess to sneaking a page or two in their books, tho. They are so intriguing. My most recent favorite is the World of Color – A Journey of Coloring Challenges by Kerby Rosanes. Talk about some fun and challenging images to color. I just may need to get some new pencils for this one!

I love garden coloring books that are full of forests, trees, and flowers, as well. In life, it is so easy to lose sight of the beauty that is all around us, and these make you slow down and catch the wonder of it all.
