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.

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!
