Waiting on Wednesday 4/21

Wednesday, April 21, 2010

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, and spotlights upcoming novels we just can't wait for! We all know there are a ton of great books coming out this year, but this week, I'm particularly excited for...

Title: The Red Pyramid
Author: Rick Riordan
Release Date: May 4, 2010

Since their mother’s death, Carter and Sadie have become near strangers. While Sadie has lived with her grandparents in London, her brother has traveled the world with their father, the brilliant Egyptologist, Dr. Julius Kane.

One night, Dr. Kane brings the siblings together for a "research experiment" at the British Museum, where he hopes to set things right for his family. Instead, he unleashes the Egyptian god Set, who banishes him to oblivion and forces the children to flee for their lives.

Soon, Sadie and Carter discover that the gods of Egypt are waking, and the worst of them--Set--has his sights on the Kanes. To stop him, the siblings embark on a dangerous journey across the globe--a quest that brings them ever closer to the truth about their family, and their links to a secret order that has existed since the time of the pharaohs.

Ok...one, I love Rick Riordan. Two, I'm sad that the Percy Jackson series is done. Three, I love fun, easy, and light reading. This sounds like all of the above and, frankly, I can't wait to get my paws on this. Plus...I love the cover. It reminds me of the beloved Percy Jackson series!

What are you waiting on this week? Leave me a link, and I'll drop by!


  1. I have the complete series of PJ but havent read them yet.and now another cool read will out..great pick!

  2. I love everything about Egypt and this book sounds so much fun and adventerous that I really, really want to read it. :)
    Very good pick.

  3. wow!!! I didn't even know he had a new book coming out!!! SOOO excited, and I LOVEEE the cover, similar to the PJ series, yet different. Great W.O.W!

  4. I just started the first Percy Jackson book and I'm really liking it so far. This one sounds really good although it does sound somewhat similar to Percy Jackson.

  9. Sounds like a great adventure! I haven't read anything by this author but I've been meaning to. Nice pick!
