Wishlist Wednesday # 16

On My Wishlist is: Displacements by Thalia Chaltas
Home is supposed to be a place you belong. It’s supposed to be parents who are there and siblings who bug you and a life that feels comfortable. It’s not supposed to be an absentee mother or a drowned sister. But that’s Vera’s reality, and she can’t stand it anymore. So she runs. She ends up in an old mining town in the middle of the California desert. It’s hot, it’s dusty, and it’s as isolated as Vera feels. As she goes about setting up her life, she also unwittingly starts the process of healing and-eventually- figuring out what home might really mean for her.
What attracted me to this book is the cover. It is so YELLOW. The book is calling to be noticed and it worked. The novel doesn’t sound like what I usually read but I like that it is set in California and the search for the meaning of “home.” Could be good.

I like the cover, it’s somehow intriguing but warm. The story sounds good too, it could be a heartwarming story,
I hope you’ll get this book soon =D
I didn’t think about the warm element of this novel. I was just attracted by the yellow but you have a point. It is warm but it feels intense as well.
Sounds like an interesting story!
Here is my Wishlist Wednesday
Lol, I love your name Captain Biscuits. Yeah, the story does sound interesting.
I think this will be a very emotional filled read. Totally something that I would add to my wishlist right now!! Not to mention you are totally right and the yellow draws you right to it.
I don’t do Wishlist Wednesday but I do a WoW… So I hope you don’t mind I linked you to that.
