Lauren Oliver: YALLFest Interview

The author interviews continue!

So, if y'all don't know about this amazing festival yet, please get on board. I have gone for the past 2 years (as long as it's been in existence) and it is the most fun I have in a day! The growth from the 1st year to the 2nd was phenomenal! I can only imagine what this 3rd year will be.
Check out for more information!

Today's interview is from Lauren FREAKIN' Oliver!!! I am trying to keep from fainting and fangirling! I may be able to control the fainting, but the fangirling, I can't! *fangirl on*

Lauren is the author of the Delirium Trilogy, Before I Fall, Liesl & Po, and more!

I have fourteen tattoos. I can fall asleep any time, any place. I have a phobia of worms. I hate fruit. I wrote my first novel largely on my Blackberry.
