5 Dog Days

I wanted to name the dog Ripjaw or Shredder, but Mom said they were too violent. - KalloFox34

We' was amokly too good

Idgaf it's the best

It's hilarious, and I also think the Third Wheel should be at number 2, so I'll make it like this:
1. Dog Days
2. The Third Wheel
3. Cabin Fever
4. The Last Straw
5. The Ugly Truth
6. Rodrick Rules (The movie rocks! )
7. Diary Of A Wimpy Kid
8. Do it yourself book
9. Movie Diary
First I thought Dog Days would be my least favorite but I slap myself in the face, pow, pow, it's my favorite, impressive comedy, and the dog was funny, the Cranium Shaker was awesome, I haven't seen the movie Dog Days, but I sill for sure.

7 Hard Luck

Best book in the whole series.

I think this book is the best Diary of a Wimpy Kid book that Jeff Kinney ever made. It is really funny and just a lot of greatness. For me 1 out of Infinity I would give this an Infinity+. And this is just what I think. Here is a list of the books that I like...
1. Hard Luck
2. Cabin Fever
3. The Ugly Truth

After the book third wheel jeff kinney went back to what made diary of a wimpy kid diary of a wimpy and blew us out of the park. this one should at least be top 3, I can clearly remember everything that happened.

This book just came out on the 5th I got it on the 9th! That's how much I love the series and this book just wowed me it should be number 1. Definitely the best book Jeff Kinney has made

8 The Ugly Truth

The lock in made it the best

Griffin is cool

Yes by far

It's the newest and the only one for me I read more then once I can't wait until they make the movie!

They might not make the movie and if they are it be in at least 10 years or it might be an animation - NoiseVisitor

9 Old School

My wife beats me

Great book! They kept it nice and simple, and I finished it in like an hour! It was an improvement from the Long Haul, which I thought was the worst book of the series because it was way too plot focused (Rowley appeared like what, once? ) The only negative was the restaurant that Rodrick worked at, which was an obvious recycling of Corny's from The Third Wheel. Overall, very great book though! Deserves to at least be higher on this list!


This is my favorite wimpy kid book

15.A Journal

Most relatable book in the series

This is LEGIT! So great, like chicken pox, his uncle Gary, Corny's, the party, I also liked Strong Steve, and all the toilet paper fights. And the assemblies, it was also really good when it explained Greg's childhood, Manny's crusty stub remains of the umbilical cord on the belly button still scares the crap out of me. This book is awesome. Just take my advice.

This book is hilarious!

The Contenders

11 The Meltdown

12 Diary of a Wimpy Kid Do-It-Yourself Book

This is a great book because its like a story and doodle book

My little brother has the whole series of the diary of a wimpy kid and he is quite a dog he won't let me read them because he worries I'm going to ruin his pages or bend them. All in all, they are the best books

It's so much fun to use because it's like you are Greg and your making your own journal and comic strip

I have it and it's good. - turtwig

13 Double Down

It should be the first as it's funny because of the plastic witch that came up in this book.

I vote this because of you people, but honestly this book sucks! My friend gave it to me and I hated it, hardly enjoyed it.


I think it's almost as good as Rodrick Rules. Definite improvement from The Long Haul. - IcetailofWishClan

14 The Getaway

The entire book is just Greg and his families endless summer struggle. It isn't funny, it doesn't have a lesson, and the endless amount of crap getting thrown at these characters you've grown attached to for 12 years for the sake of comedy is just hard to read. Easily the worst book in the series.

Best book in the series

The best I've read

It's so good. Super fun. Super cool. Just amazing. The best one yet. GREAT ending. I don't care what you say. you think another book's better?! YOU WANNA SAY THAT TO MY FACE?!?!?!

25 The Wimpy Kid Movie Diary

Better than Do-It Yourself. It was pretty interesting to learn about the production of films.

Pretty interesting to learn how the movie was made and stuff

This book was a little too basic. It wasn't in-depth enough, it covered the bare basics of how they made the movie. I can enjoy it though. Not as an actual book in the series.

I love the wimpy kid movie diary so much

26 Diary of a Wimpy Kid the Next Chapter

This is the best thing. (except for the movie, it’s horrible)


The movie was horrible.

Seriousle using a movie as an excues to put a book low on the list is just sad (I haven't seen the movie yet so I may asy this is sarcastic)
