A Cornucopia of Dystopia! Lauren Oliver Author Interview Scavenger Hunt!

11:00 AM

Like so many aspects in life, all good things must come to an end and this is the case for "A Cornucopia of Dystopia!", an event co-hosted by Danya at A Tapestry of Words and Casey at The Bookish Type. Today is the final day! *sad face* 

It's been a wonderful privilege to help take part in the event... and I've had such an awesome time reading all the many reviews and author interviews celebrating the rise in the dystopian genre! And I'm sure you've all been enjoying the cool giveaways too, eh? 

So for the final day of the event, there's a scavenger hunt interview with... Lauren Oliver, author of Delirium! (You can read my review of the novel if you wish as well.) There are 8 blogs participating in the scavenger hunt and each one will be posting their question and answer before linking to the next blog in the chain. You'll have to follow the link trail to read the interview in its entirety!

If you'd like to start at the very beginning, Casey's kicking it off over at The Bookish Type! And if you're just stopping by from the previous stop on the tour, then "Hello!". *waves* Okay, so here's the moment you've been hopefully waiting for... my question:

What literary couples would convince people that receiving a cure for deliria would be a mistake? 

Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy in Pride and Prejudice; and Fermina Daza and Florentina Araza in Love In the Time of Cholera. It takes them, like, 80 years to get together…but the payoff is so worth it.

Want to see the next question on the scavenger hunt? Head on over to A Writer's Review to see what it is! You'll definitely want to see all the questions asked during the hunt!

  1. Hi:) Great interview! I've been wanting to read Delirium for so long and I think it's about time I went out there and got myself a copy. I'm a huge Dystopian lover!

    Regarding the question; I haven't read either book as yet but I think the most likely answer would be "Fermina Daza and Florentina Araza in Love In the Time of Cholera"

    Thanks for the great blog!:)

  2. Aw, thanks Liz! And thank *you* for participating in the event :) Glad everyone enjoyed our month-long celebration of dystopian fiction! And I have to agree re: Elizabeth & Darcy...oh yeah.
