Author Interview: Lauren Oliver

Yes, I am a HUGE fan of Lauren Oliver ever since I read Before I Fall; it absolutely blew my mind.  Essentially it is the story of a snotty cheerleader who learns a very hard lesson about the consequences of living a shallow, popular life. It is still in my top 10 favorite YA books of all time. 

Lauren Oliver, how I love thee, let me count the ways…

1. Before I Fall

2. The Delirium Trilogy,

3. Liesel & Po and more…

Lauren Oliver Author Interview

 

Next, her Delirium series is an awesome trilogy in the vein of The Hunger Games, but a little more realistic and with a fantastic ending. Needless to say, when I had the opportunity to interview her, I tried not to gush too much. 

Interestingly, I think she sounds very much like Maggie Stiefvater in her love of language, her passion regarding writing and her sense of humor.  I so appreciate Lauren’s answers and can’t wait to read her newest book-Panic.  Enjoy!
