Wednesday Wishlist (15)

This post is inspired by Stargirlreads at Books Make Great Lovers. In Wishlist Wednesday, I'll showcase a book that may or may not be out yet that I would love to review and cannot wait to read! Links and descriptions are from Goodreads. Here's what's on my wishlist this week:

by Rita Murphy

A girl easily carried off by the wind. An elderly widow whose husband died under strange circumstances. An isolated dwelling that breeds fear. Miranda has no recollection of where she came from—only that years ago, a gust of wind deposited her outside Bourne Manor. The Manor’s sole inhabitant, Wysteria Barrows, took Miranda in and promptly outfitted her with special boots—boots weighted with steel bars to keep her anchored to the ground. But aside from shelter and clothing, Miranda receives little warmth from the aging widow. The Manor, too, is a cold place, full of drafts and locked doors. Full of menace. Full of secrets. Then one day a boy named Farley appears. Farley helps Miranda embrace her destiny with the wind . . . and uncover the Manor’s hidden past.

Reasons I want to read this:
1. What an intriguing description.
2. The cover is gorgeous!
3. It reminds me of Howl's Moving Castle and The Wide Window
4. It sounds like a piece of art, more than just a book.


  1. I have to agree with your four reasons; it's as simple as that, :) Great choice, McKenzie!
