Wishlist Wednesday #38

2:53 AM

Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Pen to Paperwhere we tell you about a book that is currently on our wishlist that we are excited for!

This week on Phil's Wishlist:



Moloka'i is the story of Rachel Kalama, growing up in Honolulu in the 1890's, who at the age of 7 is taken from her family and sent to Kalaupapa, the isolated leprosy settlement on the island of Moloka'i.

Its funny but I literally haven't a clue as to how I discovered this book. So there is no story behind that. Whatever caused me to look for this I can assume that the cover is what initially drew me in. I love the floral patterns, and with a title as unique as this one I knew I wanted to check it out. I also can't recal having ever read a book that takes place in Hawaii or one that deals with leprosy, which sounds awesome. Can't wait to get my hands on this one!

  2. I have to agree it is pretty, but most importantly I also haven't read any books about leprosy, so it definitely sounds interesting. Seems like it could be a refreshing read.

  3. This book has been sitting on my shelf for TWO years now, and I really, really want to read... and still haven't gotten around to it. I'm really fascinated by the history of Molokai and definitely need to read this. Thanks for the reminder!!
