I adore reading and have very wide and varied taste.  Some of my favorite genre's include historical fiction, memoirs, fantasy and non-fiction.  Some of my best-loved titles are Sandcastle girls, Poisonwood bible, Daughter of the forest, Knife of never letting go, The snow child, The glass castle and Wolf Hall.  I love Juliet Marillier, Jodi Picoult, Philippa Gregory, Deon Myer and Bill Bryson.  I read approximately 120 books a year, and I try to keep my reviews short and to the point, so you can spend less time reading them and more time reading the books you'll enjoy.  Happy reading!

Blood Red Road (Dust Lands, #1) - Moira Young

Blood Red Road (Dust Lands, #1) - Moira Young

3.5 stars. The only dystopian novels I really seem to enjoy are the ones where the future looks like the past. I absolutely adored The Knife of Never Letting Goand the rest of The Chaos Walking series. Blood Red Road was recommended to me based on this, and even though the story and the characters are not nearly as strong, I still had a great time reading it. Similar to The Chaos Walking series, the Dust Land series is also written in a dialect, which I always find entertaining. I realize this is not everyone's cup of tea though. The story was action-packed and the characters are amusing. If you enjoyed Through the Ever Nightyou will love this.

The story: When Saba's brother is stolen, red rage fills her soul. She races across the cruel dustlands to find him. Saba can trust no one. Even the boy who saves her life. She must silence her heart to survive
