To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
The synopsis for this definitely sounds interesting, but it is still just a romance. I know that so many people love this series and there was so much hype surrounding the last book release was a bit crazy! But this isn’t something I would actually read and it’s only on my TBR because of all they hype surrounding it.
Harry Potter: The Creature Vault: The Creatures and Plants of the Harry Potter Films by Jody Revenson
I have three of these books on my TBR and I’m only going to write one description. I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan and I want to know everything! I have the Character Vault and it was so interesting see things for the filming side of things and I want to read all of them!
Harry Potter: Magical Places from the Films: Hogwarts, Diagon Alley, and Beyond! by Jody Revenson
Harry Potter: The Artifact Vault by Jody Revenson
Fate of Flames by Sarah Raughley
This book sounds so interesting! Magical powers, phantoms, beasts and badass females?! This book sounds right up my alley and I will definitely be getting my hands on a copy of this book!
The Wangs Vs. The World by Jade Chang
This book follows a Chinese family living in America. I haven’t read a book about a Chinese main character I don’t think, so that is one reason I want to read it. Also this is meant to be a contemporary comedy book of sorts and I really want to read a book that is intended as comedy but also about a diverse topic (Immigration).
The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead
So this is an Historical Fiction book about being a slave in America in the pre-Civil War Era. There is a lot of mixed reviews about this book and some people have said they didn’t connect with characters and there were also some comments about things being inaccurate. I have no idea if this will be accurate, but I still want to read this book. I don’t know a lot about slavery in America, as I’m not american I didn’t study it in school as or anything like that. But I hope this book can show me a bit of what it was like. And I’m really interested in read this. Also I haven’t read a Historical Fiction book that wasn’t set around war, so that will interesting.
Burn for Burn by Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian
So this is a book about revenge, however it is still labeled as a romance, which turns me off this book. I have a copy of this on Scribd as it sounded interesting by the synopsis, but now that I’m seeing that it is labeled as a romance I’m not interested. The main reason I was interested was because it just sounded like a revenge story and I was intrigued. But now, not so much.
Trutchwitch by Susan Dennard
This is a series I have wanted to start for ages, just haven’t got around to it. I am a massive fantasy fan and this world sounds so interesting! This book also seems like it doesn’t seem to be a focus on romance at all which I am loving! It’s so unique to find a book that isn’t focused on romance, so I’m keen for that!
Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes
This is a high fantasy world and the world itself sounds really interesting. I like how in the synopsis you can choose whose side you think sounds the best. There is an implied romance, I think, in the synopsis but it doesn’t seem to be a big focus so I’m not too worried. I like how this book follows 4 different characters and I’m assuming that it will be written in Multi POV.
So I only deleted 2 books, but it is better than nothing haha! But oh well, that is all for todays Down the TBR Hole!

I couldn’t connect with The Underground Railroad at all. The idea behind it was pretty interesting, but I really didn’t like the writing style.

I agree!! I couldn’t connect with the book either. I read it before it was widely reviewed so I was super confused with the “railroad”.
