probably someone ahean of you who had the books on hold or their shelf on hold came back and took them off hold.

Or, someone got a copy and RWAP'd it, going back on the WL.

From the Help Center:

Why did I move *backward* on my Wish List?

This happens when another member who was "ahead of you" in line previously (and who got an offer of the book already) gets back into line, for one of several reasons:

  • The member's Wish List book never arrived, and was declared lost in the mail
  • The member's Wish List transaction was canceled by the sender
  • The member had had her account on hold, and has now returned from vacation and unHeld her account. She will go back into line at her previous position when she does this: if she was "ahead of you" before, you will move back a space.

Please be assured that we would NEVER put another member ahead on the Wish List without good cause--in order to go ahead of others on the Wish List, a member MUST have Wish Listed that item earlier (on an earlier date) than they did.

I'm guessing since both books moved backward it was someone else who also had both books WL'd took their account off vacation hold. They were ahead of you in line so putting their books back in place bumped you back a notch.
