You can move around on the WL due to a number of reasons.
Someone may have had a WL book on hold, then they decided to unhold that book. They may have had their account on vacation hold & once they are no longer on hold, their WL books are now back in line again. Or maybe someone before you had a book that they had to mark as RWAP, which automatically puts them back in line to get that book again.
I know what you mean, Charlotte. That happened to me last week & I was SO disappointed! Each time I see that the wishes are being granted & I'm moving up the line, I get excited......so when I seem to be moving up & then go back, it's disheartening!!

It is disappointing, but I've really appreciated the times when I've received a damaged book, or a book on its way to me has been lost in the mail, and I've been placed back in my original spot in the wish list lines, so there's a definite plus side to it.
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 was taken out of line gets back into line.
This can happen if a member (or members) ahead of you in the Wish List line:
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.
