Hence, if you are looking for something fun to do this Halloween, we suggest you take a look! Why? Simple. As you may know, coloring books are not just fun, but they also come with a long list of health benefits such as:
- Reducing stress and anxiety
- Improving motor skills and vision
- Enhancing sleep
- Aiding with memory
- Promoting concentration
- Allowing meditation and practicing mindfulness
Hence, without further ado, here are the top thirteen books (in no particular order) that you absolutely need for this fall season:
1. The Beauty of Horror I
Described as a “GOREgeous” coloring book, this paperback book includes designs that range from burial grounds and zombie apocalypse scenes to serial killer lairs and gruesome torture chambers. It was designed by comics creator/rockstar Alan Robert and is part of a three-book series that will take you on a spooky adventure like no other.
“I absolutely love it! The pictures are spooky and very pretty (considering the theme). A lot of the images are very intricate, but as long as you use thin pens or keep your colored pencils nice and sharp, this should not be a problem. The paper’s quality is very nice, thick, and easy to draw or color. I truly recommend this coloring book to anyone looking for a creepy coloring book for Halloween or if you are just fascinated by that kind of thing.”

“Another Jade Summer book with a macabre theme, but it’s the detail and realism of the settings in the drawing style that make this book interesting. Not as many pages as some adult coloring books out there but the settings and the idea that horror could be an everyday thing for some people- even in an explicit stomach-turning way is what makes this book really stand out.”
