Why I love Lauren Oliver

Lauren Oliver caught my attention earlier this year with Before I Fall. What can I say, but I really loved this book. Everything about it was authentic well except for the Ground Hog day element. I really just loved how Sam grew and learned from her experiences. This book had me on an emotional rollercoaster that started with I really hate this girl and she should get what she deserves, to sadness, to funny as all heck, to rooting for her, to anger, to acceptance. I’m sure somewhere in there I followed the patterns of grief. I gave this book 5 stars. I really loved the cover too!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So naturally when her next book came out, I was all over it. I loved the cover and the mystic about it. Although this book was in a different genre, dystopian, I was sure to love it. For me this book moved at a snail’s pace in the beginning. I know she was setting the scene and possibly because it is a part of a series she felt she had time. But I expected to hit the road running like her first book. So I continued to read on as I didn’t hate it. The theory in this society about love made it destine to be a romance story. But it took us quite a while to get there. Heck, I guess it wouldn’t have been realistic if it had moved faster based on the society Lena lived in. But gosh, this slow moving train wrecked ended in a way that had me in tears just like the end of Before I Fall. I can’t imagine how the sequel will turn out if somehow Delirium’s ending doesn’t turn around. But in the end, I gave this book its due of 5 stars.

If you haven’t yet read any of her books, it is a must. Start with Before I Fall. At least that’s my suggestion. Let me know what you think.
