This piece of fan art comes from epic reads and I think at lovely and wanted to share.
Lauren answered yet another question via her blog
This time addressing the question of banned music and poetry in the Delirium universe as well as the new information of content that shall be available in the Delirium short stories paperback!
Bellow is the question asked and Lauren’s response;
I was wondering what sort of music is in the Library or Authorized Music and Movies? What would the lyrics typically be about? Would it sound like any contemporary music? I love the world in Delirium and I would love to learn more!
In the back of the paperback “Delirium Stories”, which is coming out March 5th, is a list of books and poems that would have been banned along with quotes that show the reasons they were forbidden!
As for music, I think any song that showed Love in a positive light would be forbidden.
Lauren Oliver wishes to thank all her loyal fans who have been waiting patiently for the legal version of Requiem to be released.
As a reward and thanks for your loyalty she has posted the first 85 pageeqiem o get yourself excited for!

Last week, it was announced that Emma Roberts will be playing Lena in the Delirium TV series. Let’s find out more about the actress!
Lena had always described herself as in between. She said she was not ugly, but she was not pretty either. She is 5’2″ in height and have a brown hair. She described her eyes as not green or brown, but a muddle.
- Who is Emma Roberts?
Emma Rose Roberts (born February 10, 1991) is an American actress, model and singer. She is the daughter of actor Eric Roberts and niece of Julia Roberts. Roberts became known for her role as Addie Singer in the Nickelodeon television series Unfabulous. She released her debut album, which also served as the show’s soundtrack Unfabulous and More. Roberts then pursued a solo singing career by recording two songs for the soundtracks of Ice Princess and Aquamarine (in which Roberts starred as one of the leads). Roberts then began to focus on her acting career, the title character in the 2007 film Nancy Drew, and her voice-over debut in The Flight Before Christmas.
Share your thoughts on Emma as Lena in the comments! Is she the right choice?
