The Dark Days of Winter are here again!!! And we are representing an amazing author!  She's faster than the Regulators, more powerful than the DFA and able to leap genres in a single bound.  She's  Katniss.  She's Hermione. No she's LAUREN OLIVER!!!!  Yahoooooooo!!!! We were so excited to receive her as our author!!!! And this is what we have been doing for days, days I say!!!

Hugh Grant Love Actually Dance
Ms. Oliver's writing is one of kind.  We at the Sisterhood adore her and are envious of her writing super powers.  After reading her works, we are pretty sure that in real life, she has almost starved to death, has had gun shots raining down on her and has led a resistance in some foreign land.  Her writing is precise, vivid and full of imagery.  To open up one of her novels truly means to visit another land.  We are truly, truly honored to be hosting her for this years Dark Days of Winter.  We also have a special little treat for you, a video from Lauren herself!  She's here to share a little about her final installment Requiem from her Delirium Trilogy.  Let me just say, guys, it is AMAZING!!!

Requiem by Lauren Oliver Final Book in the Delirium Trilogy
Published by Harper
Release Date: March 5th, 2013

Requiem (Delirium, #3)
Now an active member of the resistance, Lena has been transformed. The nascent rebellion that was under way in Pandemonium has ignited into an all-out revolution in Requiem, and Lena is at the center of the fight.

After rescuing Julian from a death sentence, Lena and her friends fled to the Wilds. But the Wilds are no longer a safe haven—pockets of rebellion have opened throughout the country, and the government cannot deny the existence of Invalids. Regulators now infiltrate the borderlands to stamp out the rebels, and as Lena navigates the increasingly dangerous terrain, her best friend, Hana, lives a safe, loveless life in Portland as the fiancée of the young mayor. Requiem is told from both Lena’s and Hana’s points of view. The two girls live side by side in a world that divides them until, at last, their stories converge.


Lauren Oliver comes from a family of writers and so has always (mistakenly) believed that spending hours in front of the computer every day, mulling over the difference between “chortling” and “chuckling,” is normal. She has always been an avid reader. 

She attended the University of Chicago, where she continued to be as impractical as possible by majoring in philosophy and literature. After college, she attended the MFA program at NYU and worked briefly as the world’s worst editorial assistant, and only marginally better assistant editor, at a major publishing house in New York. Her major career contributions during this time were flouting the corporate dress code at every possible turn and repeatedly breaking the printer. Before I Fall is her first published novel.  You can find out more information about Lauren at Lauren Oliver Books.
