I've started to see these adult coloring books pop up everywhere lately and after getting this one I now know why. Because they are brilliant! I am not ashamed at all to admit I still love coloring just as much as I did when I was little but this book is ten times better than coloring one of my niece's Disney books.

What makes it even cooler is the fact that most of the pages have to do with books! Perfect for an avid reader and any romance lo

An epic adult coloring book for readers of romance! There are so many fun designs from many authors I love, plus a few book-lover pages that aren't author specific. I colored one of a more simple designs/doodles (as you can see above) to make sure that my markers didn't bleed through to the next page. That happens A LOT. I'm happy to report that there is zero bleeding in this one.

Christina's doodles are always amazing. I have seven hanging in my library. She did a fantastic job transferring

I've been following Doodles by Christina for a while. I loved the doodles she would make of books from my favorite authors, so when I read that she was going to release an actual book with some of her doodles I knew I had to immediately get it! I also pre-ordered a few to give away and some more to gift as Christmas gifts. Then I was even luckier to get an advance copy of the book and I almost died of happiness!




This book is all sorts of awesome! Everything from cover to cover is grea

I love adult coloring books and I love reading. So when I saw Love Between the Lines I knew that I needed to get this coloring book.

The book has pictures on one side only. This is the only kind of coloring book I use as I like to use markers.

The paper quality is okay. However, I would prefer a slightly thicker, sturdier paper.

I leave my pictures in the book. But there should be an easier way to take the pictures out. It would be much better if the pages were perforated so that they could be remo

Recently these coloring books have been popping up more and more. What I love about these books is that they help with stress. As a mother of a newborn baby and a two year old, I need to distress. What I love about this coloring book is that it’s book themed. I’ve read a few of the books that have been featured and I love what kind of doodles Christina created for it.

Some of the authors featured are: Colleen Hoover, Katy Evans and S.C. Stephens.

I'm really enjoying this book. I'm surprised! I haven't colored in years, many years. I thought it wasn't something for me anymore. I totally get the whole coloring for relaxation deal now. Many of these doodles are from favorite books of mine so working on them is like a nice trip down memory lane. Finding all the hidden details is fun. I recommend checking it out for yourself.

This yummy "adult" coloring book does not really fit into in of the traditional categories here on Goodreads but it is a must-have for any romance reader! It is a huge, gorgeous and very imaginative coloring book filled with "doodles" from many of my favorite contemporary romance and young adult books. I was afraid to begin coloring them in at first, but then I grabbed a bag of colored pencils and dove right in! It was actually incredibly relaxing.

This book is GORGEOUS and it has some of my most favorite books in it! I am totally OCD so I am waiting to color it in once I have a new set of colored pencils lol I am looking forward to hours of relaxing, coloring fun and to revisit books that have stayed in my heart. Each page is so exquisitely done and Christina Collie is a truly gifted artist!
Got my book today! I really don't color, at all. I know many find it relaxing and soothing. I'm a reader, so I read to relax and sooth my bookwhore soul. But when I saw the lovely Co Ho talking about this back in July, I clicked the crap out of it. I've read all these books except 3. These pages are awesome and I'm going to color them, then frame my favorite books. I have 3 other doodles that I bought in the summer from Christina, so this will go perfectly together. Now I need to get me some nic ...more

This is pretty much the best thing ever, I've done nothing but color since I got this last week. The pictures are epic and represent some of my favorite books so well. This is the best adult coloring book I have ever seen. Christina is an amazing artist and I hope she does another one of these. I was a fan of hers before and now I am even more.

I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for an honest review.

This is my first review of a coloring book. I usually don't take the time to color. My schedule is usually one that's on the go all the time. So this was one I had to bring with me to do in the car! It must have looked like I was having a lot of fun as one of my kids wanted to join with me in my coloring. HA!

Personally - the pages with just words was way easier to focus on than the ones with several images. I think I might be

This coloring book is so cute and was made with so much love! Each page is more gorgeous than the other! It's THE perfect book for every book lover! <3

Unfortunately, there are still so many pages from authors and books I have no clue about - simply because I haven't read those books yet! Of course they all are on my tbr now! ;)

Every page is simply gorgeous...

Images of three pages that I colored, with close-ups.

Below, three other pages that I like.

Below are three pages that I don't like at all. They're a good example of what the majority of the pages look like- big lettering.

MY THOUGHTS: The book is 9 3/4" square. The paper is good quality, nice and thick, but the pages aren't perforated and it's a bit difficult to rip the pages out cleanly. The pages are too wide to fit fully on a

Simply put, this new adult coloring book by Christina Collie is a gorgeous work of art, a fantastic concept, and everyone needs to have one in their hands!

If you are a book lover, this is a great introduction to some really terrific authors and their novels. It is also a very creative way to remember some of your favorite stories and quotes as well. Collie has included such a great selection of authors and books in her designs- some of my all time favorites such as Mia Sheridan, Emma Chase, and

I love this coloring book! It’s so special and unique. I am someone who enjoys coloring once in a while and have tried adult coloring books in the past but I quickly forgot about them. Love Between the Lines is definitely special for a few different reasons though.

Adult coloring books in general tend to be a lot of mosaics and things like that, which is fine, but just about every page in this book holds so much meaning for a book lover like me. If you’ve rea

Adult Coloring Books has become a huge trend as of late and it seems that everyone is doing it. I love coloring so when the trend first started I was all over it. I still have the first "adult" coloring books I purchased and have yet to finish them.

With Love Between the Lines it blends my two favorite types of books, romance and coloring. These pictures are cute, fun, tasteful, and with great quotes from our favorite authors. The great thing about these adult coloring books is that you

I own three of Christina Collie's Book Doodles and when I found out that she was doing this coloring book, I knew I HAD to have it.

The doodles are amazing and I cannot wait to color pages featuring some of my favorite books and authors. I love that each page consists of only one doodle and that you can remove them to frame or decorate rooms however you want. This coloring book is going to give me endless relaxation time while reminding me of the stories that are nearest and

I absolutely love this coloring book! I've been a fan of Christina's for a couple of years now, and I think it's so great that she's finally able to share her work with all of us! And all of the amazing authors and their stories that were here muse, really bring back the memory of reading the book. It's so cool.

The book is a great size and the pages are very thick and sturdy so if you wanted to take your work out and frame it, I think it would hold up great. I started coloring the page dedicate

So much to say about this amazing coloring book.

First looks of adult coloring books out there, but lots I don't want to do around my kid. This we could color together. So relaxing to wait with my kid have my own book and color. A activity we could do together.

Second the pages are sao beautiful and books I obsess over were the themes of the pages. It was addicting.

Third. I could cut out pages frame put on my book shelf. The pages are that beautiful.

Highly recommend. This was so fun and addictin

When I got the coloring book. I just opened it up randomly and started coloring without really looking through the page. As I was coloring, it reminded me of Abbi Glines's book and I looked around the page and it was based on her Rosemary Beach Series. Then more memories of the series came back to me as I drew. That was so cool!

I am not a proficient artist. I haven't colored since my kids were little so I am a little out of practice as my teenager gave me a disapproving look at my work. I don't
