Top Ten Tuesday: Literature-Themed Colouring Books

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Close-up photo of colored pencils Technically, this week’s topic was “Book Titles That Sound Like They Could Be Crayola Crayon Colors.”

My apologies to Jana, but I couldn’t find a single title that fit this description no matter how hard I searched.

Due to this, I tweaked the topic to be literature themed colouring books. That is to say, colouring books that are inspired by actual novels. Get your coloured pencils ready!

  1. Ooh, fun! I had no idea there were so many of these literature-based colouring books 😍 I’ve been thinking about getting a new colouring book to do with mum to pass the time these days (lol) but the only bookish one I’ve seen is Game of Thrones and it was … intense! 😂 Great list, Lydia!

    • I literally just left a comment on your post. 🙂

      It’s interesting to know that the Game of Thrones colouring book was intense. I’ll keep that in mind and hope you can find something calmer to colour.

  2. I love how you twisted the topic! Some of these I had no ideas they made coloring books of. I guess you know you’ve made it when they make a coloring book out of your novel.

  3. So these are real colouring books? That sounds awesome. I will have to see what I can find. I think I am the only one who knows nothing about Discworld, I might have to remedy that. Great twist on this week’s topic, Lydia.

  4. All of these sound so lovely! I have a lot of coloring books, but no literary ones. I should change that.

  5. Ooh, these are fun! The Discworld coloring book looks amazing. And how did I not know that there’s a Rick Grimes coloring book??? I’ve been gifted Outlander and Game of Thrones coloring books, and they’re both lovely to look at. I like your list!

  6. What a wonderful twist to the topic. I love it. I usually love the tweaks, they are so inspirational. But this one is exceptional. Thanks.

    And thanks for visiting my (rather boring compared to your) TTT earlier.

    • Thanks a lot! Based on what you’ve shared about your personality and interests in previous TTT posts, I think you might really like adult colouring books. 🙂

  7. I love coloring and have not done it often enough as of late. When I was pregnant with my first son many moons ago I was on bedrest for a few months and went through a lot of coloring books. They didn’t have so many cool ones as they do now, nor was there someplace like the internet to make them easily accessible. You’ve curated a wonderful list and I may just have to take up the hobby again to check some of these out.

  8. Great way to still bring in the topic but make it your own. 🙂 I remember seeing coloring books (for adults) be SUCH a thing for several years. Never bought one, but it might have been fun. Thanks for visiting Finding Wonderland, Lydia.

    • You’re welcome, Rissi! Colouring Books for adults are so much fun. I do encourage you to give them a try if you’re interested and ever have the opportunity to do so.

  9. I had no idea there were coloring books based on literature- – and definitely would not have expected it for something as modern as A Court of Thorns and Roses (how huge IS that series??). So cool!
