Do You Want to Meet Lauren Oliver?

It is no secret that I love Lauren Oliver’s writing.  Her first book, Before I Fall, was amazing.  I loved the concept of a teen girl looking back at her life and changing herself to become a better person.  The characterization and the plotting were so well done. Her newest book, Delirium, is an epic love story set amongst a time where love is forbidden and outlawed.  I received a copy from the publisher via Net Galley.  My review is forthcoming. :)

Needless to say, I was thrilled when I found that Lauren Oliver would be visiting the central Ohio independent bookstore, Cover to Cover.  This awesome children and teen’s bookstore (which receives a lot of my money!) is located in Clintonville.  I love their great selection and their attention to helping customers find the right book. (plus the 10 percent educator discount) :)   Lauren Oliver is visiting this bookstore on February 7th at 7 pm!  Yay!  Jenny of Supernatural Snark and I are planning on attending. 

Do you live in central Ohio (or want to make the drive?)  We would love to meet up with you and meet Lauren Oliver all together!  E-mail me or Jenny if you are interested in meeting up!  We hope to see you on February 7th and meet some fellow bloggers. (or fellow book lovers)

About Jen

For as long as I can remember, I have loved to read. I have always viewed words as having a magical quality-able to transport, illuminate and inspire. I was able to parlay this love of reading into a career as a language arts teacher and am able to encourage students every day to find books that "speak" to them. I decided to blog about the books I read because books are meant to be shared and discussed. :)

    I just finished Before I Fall (literally, like 5 minutes ago!!) and got on your site to check this post. I believe I first read about this book from your blog, checked it out at the library, and read it during yesterday’s and today’s snow (ICE!) days. I saw something about Lauren Oliver and vowed I would finish the book before reading the whole posting. How cool that she’ll be in Columbus this weekend. I wish I could go…

    Thanks for the recommendation. Next up to read: The Mockingbirds.

    :)

      Yay! I am so glad that you enjoyed Before I Fall. I am going to reread it this summer. Definitely check out Delirium – such a wonderful love story and so exciting. I have not read The Mockingbirds yet so I would love to hear your opinion when you are done!

  3. Seeing as its past February 7, I’m assuming you went to Lauren Oliver’s event and had a great time!! I have both Before I Fall and Delirium but still haven’t read either yet… I will get to reading them soon I’m sure. (Or at least when I have more time…)

    I’ve also given you an award on my blog Jen! You can check it out here.
