1. The Red Pyramid - Rick Riordan
The Red Pyramid (Kane Chronicles, #1)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.

1. How to Train Your Parents - Pete Johnson
How to Train Your ParentsThe tale of a boy who is fed up with his hyper-competitive parents. Moving to a new neighbourhood and a new school, Louis’s parents become ultra-competitive parents, wanting him and his brother to get straight As at school and join all sorts of after-school clubs and activities like the other kids in the neighbourhood. Suddenly Louis’s life is no longer his own. Then he meets Maddy, who claims to have trained her parents to ignore her. But does Louis really want to be ignored?

What do you think you'll read next?
 A stunning middle-grade debut--full of heart, humor, and nonstop action. It's tough to be thirteen, especially when somebody's trying to kill you. Not that Egg's life was ever easy, growing up on sweaty, pirate-infested Deadweather Island with no company except an incompetent tutor and a pair of unusually violent siblings who hate his guts. But when Egg's father hustles their family off on a mysterious errand to fabulously wealthy Sunrise Island, then disappears with the siblings in a freak accident, Egg finds himself a long-term guest at the mansion of the glamorous Pembroke family and their beautiful, sharp-tongued daughter Millicent. Finally, life seems perfect. Until someone tries to throw him off a cliff. Suddenly, Egg's running for his life in a bewildering world of cutthroat pirates, villainous businessmen, and strange Native legends. The only people who can help him sort out the mystery of why he's been marked for death are Millicent and a one-handed, possibly deranged cabin boy. Come along for the ride. You'll be glad you did.
Leave me a link to your WWW Wednesday, I'll drop by! :)

  1. Rick Riordan is one of my favorite MG authors, and he seems to humble and appreciative of his success. I haven't read The Red Pyramid yet. I need to.
