"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Want to participate?
Go here!

My "can't-wait-to-read" choice is:

"The Red Pyramid"
(The 1st book in the Kane Chronicles)
Rick Riordan
Puclication date:
May 4
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.

So, what's your "waiting on" pick this week?


  1. I saw this one just a moment ago, i really want to read this one. It sounds very good, adventures are always fun and excited!

  2. I think I saw this title on another blog recently and thought Oh yeah! I will definitely be reading this one. Hopefully, Riodan is on a roll and it will be as fast-paced and exciting as his Titan's series. Excellent choice.

  3. All of these are great picks! My WOW is at The Crowded Leaf.

  4. I am looking forward to this one. I really liked the Percy Jackson series and I've always been interested in Egypt.

  5. Oh, me either. Reading the first chapter got me even MORE excited. Great WOW pick!
