Selection fans get excited! THE SELECTION COLORING BOOK, based on the series by Kiera Cass, is getting ready to celebrate its year anniversary of being in print and it would make the perfect holiday gift! The beautiful illustrations by Sandra Suy are separated into sections for each of the five books, and incorporates fan favorite moments as vetted by Cass herself. Cass regrettably notes that “Maxon getting kneed in the junk isn’t in there,” but as she says, “We can’t have everything.”

The drawings are as glamorous as I would hope. I love how elegant the dresses and details are, which brings me right back into the world of the story. I was happy to see images of Aspen and America in the treehouse, the wedding from THE ONE, and the kitchen scene from THE HEIR. Sometimes, it’s a little hard to tell which characters are in the actual illustrations, so I would have liked a caption or an excerpt from the book at the bottom of each picture. It’s more fun for me to color these when I know exactly what’s going on!

There are also recognizable quotes from the novels, presented with lovely patterns to color. Some of them are, “True love is usually the most inconvenient kind,” “The sky is blue, the sun is bright, and Aspen endlessly loves America,” and “Maybe it’s not the first kisses that are supposed to be special. Maybe it’s the last ones.” The lettering by Martina Flor, different for each quote, is dazzling.

Coloring books in general are said to be a great way to relieve stress and calm down. They are also a creative and artistic outlet, infinitely more exciting when the source material is from beloved novels. I personally have a stack of coloring books and THE SELECTION COLORING BOOK is my favorite. Not only is there so much variety and happily ever after feels, but “It’s so much more than that.”
