Book Bird Q&A with Lauren!

318076_458346767560228_1743568992_n

Recently BookBird had the opportunity to have a question and answer session with Lauren Oliver!

In the interview, they discuss her writing, whether she likes physical books or e-books, and what inspires:

Do you think Book covers are important or should you never judge a book by it’s cover?
I think book covers can often be misleading, but I think everyone is guilty of doing it to a certain extent.

If you could have dinner with anyone in the world who would it be?
Hmm… maybe Alanis Morissette. She’s one of my favorite singers and has had such an interesting life!

The books were released in February and October, respectively, and they certainly did not disappoint! With Requiem just around the corner (less than three months!), Lauren is also proving herself to be very prolific!

Lauren Oliver and Delirium Honored in Germany!

Lauren Oliver and Delirium are officially embedded on the streets of Germany after winning the Buxtehuder Bulle Jugendbuchpreis, the one of the most renown youth book awards in the nation!

Lauren Oliver Delirium Book Award

The award recipients are chosen by a panel of eight young adults and four adults from the local area. Lauren won in 2011, but her memento on the streets of Buxtehude seems to have just been added in recently!

The Obama Girls buy Delirium and Pandemonium

The official Delirium Trilogy Facebook has a great photo of President Barack Obama and his daughters, Sasha and Malia, buying books at a local, independent bookstore in Virginia. What on top of their stack of books? Delirium and Pandemonium!

What great taste in books!

Lauren Oliver had this to say about the discovery on her Facebook:

LOVE that Obama & his daughters bought my books (DELIRIUM & PANDEMONIUM) ! I am so proud!

Anyone else incredibly jealous of this Requiem ARC?

thecupishalffull, a lucky receiver of a Requiem ARC, posted this picture today:

 

I’m sure I can’t be the only one who is super jealous. At least the release date for Requiem is edging ever closer!

If you haven’t done it already, Requiem is up for pre-order. I know you might be tempted to buy from Amazon right away (with their can’t-beat-it below-cost prices), but don’t forget that there are still smaller businesses out there. Though more expensive than Amazon, Powell’s of Portland, OR fame also has the book up for pre-order with around-the-world shipping. Please support book stores when buying books, and buy local when Holiday shopping this year!
