Barack Obama‘s daughters; turns out, they’re just like any other tween/teen. While at a local book store in Arlington, VA with their President papa, the First Daughters picked up some new reading materials at a local bookstore. On the top of the pile: Lauren Oliver‘s Delirium and Pandemonium.

Just to give you a frame of reference, Delirium is a young adult dystopian series (and soon to be a finished trilogy with Requiem come March 2013). But unlike others in the same genre, like The Mortal Instruments and Divergent (which were all up for the same recognition for Good Reads 2012), it’s based in a world where love is seen as a disease, so you’re set to get a “cure” for it in your late teens. And, just like the aforementioned titles, Delirium may be hitting the big screen as it’s currently being optioned by Fox 2000. Fingers crossed!

This isn’t the first of Lauren’s books Malia (14) and Sasha (11) snatched up. In July of this year, the two were spotted purchasing her debut novel, Before I Fall, at a local bookstore in NYC. Now if only we can catch them with Hana, which is considered to be Delirium 1.5 because it’s based on a different lead character.

What’s your favorite YA series at the moment? Have you jumped on the Delirium train yet?

    Delirium was a terrible book. Pandemonium was quite a lot better than Delirium, but the series as a whole was disappointing. Same with Fallen – utter rubbish.
    They should try The Mortal Instruments/The Infernal Devices or Divergent or Paranormalcy. They’re much better
