Some Books Ago: Blood Red Road (Dust Lands #1) by Moira Young

Some Books Ago is a shout out to all those books published some years ago. I don't want you to forget them!

Blood Red Road is one of my favorite books ever. Even though it was a little difficult for me to read because of the dialect, I found it unique and fantastic. It's like The Hunger Games and An Ember in the Ashes... so good! Sadly, the second book was so disappointing because of an ugly love triangle... I still haven't read the last book because of it. Anyway, I would always recommend Blood Red Road alone because it's too good to miss!
Check it out!

Saba has spent her whole life in Silverlake, a dried-up wasteland ravaged by constant sandstorms. The Wrecker civilization has long been destroyed, leaving only landfills for Saba and her family to scavenge from. That's fine by her, as long as her beloved twin brother Lugh is around. But when four cloaked horsemen capture Lugh, Saba's world is shattered, and she embarks on a quest to get him back.

Suddenly thrown into the lawless, ugly reality of the outside world, Saba discovers she is a fierce fighter, an unbeatable survivor, and a cunning opponent. Teamed up with a handsome daredevil named Jack and a gang of girl revolutionaries called the Free Hawks, Saba's unrelenting search for Lugh stages a showdown that will change the course of her own civilization.


  1. I tried so hard to read this book! I got a few chapters in, and there were a few things that I just could not stand. So I gave up. Meh! :D

    1. Oh, that's so sad, but I meet many people who couldn't read it.

  2. Argh - dialect is really not my favorite, and for that reason I haven't read this yet. Have heard great things about it!

    1. It was really awesome, but I guess it wasn't for everyone. Too complicated.

  3. I didn't hear about Blood Red Road before. It sounds like an interesting dystopian novel.

  4. Oh I forgot about this one. I wanted to read it and I totally forgot. :)
