Top Ten Reasons to Hate Dork Diaries

Seriously, this book series is bad! Thank god it's getting cancelled! But the bad news is they're making a movie... TTnTT

The Top Ten

1 Too many stereotypes and labels

I agree,i mean the stereotypes are very annoying and there isn't no need for it.She needs to write something more interesting and more realistic,but the author prefers cliches which are old school.

The books are bad and not funny. Why do they keep making books like 12 or 11 is it really neccesary to make all OF thOSE books. So many stereotypes and everything is like FAKE and unrealisitc.

The usual stereotypes, dorky nerds, popular girl, cute guy, ugh ugh ugh!

There’s way too many cliches like the mean girl, the bland love interest, sucky school life and the unpopular protagonist

2 Nikki is mean

Honestly, she keeps throwing shade by writing trash about people like SHE's so perfect

She makes Mackenzie Hollister look good!

All she does is complain, and she acts SO annoying like can you just stop talking about how crappy or fabulous your life is and worry about SCHOOL not your cruah or how mean your bully is if she so mean

SHES ANNOYING AND MEAN TO HER LITTLE SIS she expects everything to go her way JUST UGH

She bullies her sister and makes mean drawings in her diary! Read the first book if you don't believe me! - mayamanga

3 Too many acronyms

A book shouldn't use acronyms,also it isn't proper literature!

I like Nikki because she is friendly

I agree this book is horrible. But this book is for children. I remember liking it when I was like eight. don't get too salty darling

", I was like, by the way, CCP, etc etc etc" It's too much! - mayamanga

4 It makes fun of people with braces

Nikki laughed at MacKenzie's 6th grade picture.

In the 9th book Brandon finds a picture of MacKenzie with braces in 6th grade and Nikki writes, "It looks like MacKenzie's smile isn't so perfect after all! " - mayamanga

Mini is just too..if I!

5 It's too stereotypical

1. They're's absolutely NO black people in this book, except for Tyrone and Zoey
2. Everyone assumes that only black guys say 'dawg', 'man', or 'yo'
3. Apparently all the girls say. Like honestly, you can't even last 5 minutes without hearing that word

It's basically dorky girl has a crush on a boy at school and some one bullies her and blah blah blah blah...

6 Too much drama

School humor books always have drama in them.

Just one thing to say about this one: Blah. - mayamanga

7 Everything is so cliche

What's up with CPP or BRB. Too much!

8 It contains bullying
9 Nikki watches perverted things on TV

She watches a show that talked about celebrities forgetting to wear underwear in public! - mayamanga

Lol and the age range is 9-13

10 It encourages kids to believe that school doesn't matter.

She doesn't even do her home work!

The Newcomers

? Nikki is a spoiled, rotten, selfish, ungrateful, stupid girl

She's always complaining about her APPARENTLY CRUDDY family, her CRUDDY life, and she always get's her way! Like, what the HELL?! If you HATE your life so much, then why are you ALIVE?! Go choke on a stick and stop treating everyone like CRAP! And quit making everything about YOU! Get a LIFE! UGGH!

? Nikki thinks that she's always the victim

The Contenders

11 It's too sexist

Agreed and they don't even have a spectrum of characters like introduce a character of a different ethnicity or a character of different race or at least a character who has a different sexuality

12 It encourages kids to believe they are better than others

Nikki is mean and cruel, but everything unbelievable happens. Her life is filled with adventurous drama where there's this mean girl (Mackenzie) who is like the devil herself, there's a cute boy who somehow likes her back, and finally, she wins everything! On top of all that, she is said to be smart and popular and is voted to be the best in everything. This high school she goes to needs to teach the kids what proper behavior and kind people actually do.

13 Lack of character development

Mackenzie is forever a mean girl without anything likeable. Everyone else is the exact same at the end of the books.

14 Nikki gets everything she wants but she acts like she does not know it
15 It has annoying characters

Seriously, 8th graders don't act like the characters in this book.

It's just a really stupid series. Like the kind of stupid that makes you feel like you got stupider after reading it. - keycha1n

Yeah. No middle schoolers in reality act or talk like in those books. They are even worse trash talkers than the stars of Jersey Shore.

I guess the first 2 books or so we're okay but after that it started to get REALLY unrealistic and annoying like she GETS HER OWN T.V. SHOW I ONE BOOK and also makenzie is REALLY EVIL NOBODY IS THAT EVIL IN REAL LIFE And also niki always is like I'M A HUGE DORK but actually shes a SPOLIED DIVA WHO ISINT A DORK And plus that last book is REALLY bad by the way I think it's the worst one

16 Nikki is a lot like Mackenzie and doesn't know it

Don't worry, we're smarter than Nikki, she's just a stupid kid.

"Please don't hate me because I'm DORKALICIOUS." You are not a dork. You are a snob, a ditz, and a total jerk to your parents and elders, not to mention little kids! - mayamanga

I AM SUCH A DORK! No, your not. Your a snobby diva, a wannabee, a T.V. star, ugh.

17 Rip-off of Diary of a Wimpy Kid

DOAWK is better then DD. DOAWK is funny, adorable, and cool. It is like comparing a rip off from video brinquedo to the pixar or dreamworks movie it is ripping off.

There are other diary theme books like dear dumb diary - BoyGenius234

Diary Of A Wimpy Kid and Dear Dumb Diary are so much better than this stupid series!

Pretty much a 14
Year old girl in the place of Greg and with all that stereotyped drama

18 It's too overrated


I agrre too percy jackson is the best

I agree with the other person. PERCY JACKSON FOR LIFE.

Ikr. Why don't girls are age like Percy Jackson more?

19 Everyone is heterosexual

Is there something wrong with straight people? Why do you feel the need to point out that everyone is heterosexual if you don’t have a problem with heterosexuals? I’ve agreed with all of your points made up until now.

20 No diversity at all

Well, Chloe is Latina, and Zoey is African-American, and Andre is French. And Chloe happens to be a "book nerd".

Literally Zoe is the only black character, and all the girls like the same things such as dresses and all that. Is it so hard to just add a tomboy, or a book nerd?

Zoey is the only black character.

Are there even any black characters?
And gay/ lesbian/ people who AREN'T WHITE?
And why do all the girls... girly? I know you can't have a total tomboy nation but really? 1 WHOLE HIGH SCHOOL with ALL THE GIRLS BEING GIRLY AND LIKING DRESSES AND CRAP?

21 Super Unrealistic

So, Nikki gets a reality T.V. show. Um tf? I liked book one and two but After that, it gets really unrelatable. Nikki also managed to date the "one boy in every teen drama that everyone likes" which really makes this book unrealistic.

22 Nikki is a liar in both books and her blog

Too many uneccesary books the series should have ended like the 2nd book so this is bad and shut up stupid

23 The 1st book is way too inappropriate

In what way is the first book inappropriate?

Yes, totally.

24 Nikki is obsessed over being a dork

Even worse, she isn't a dork. She probably doesn't even know what "dork" means. She's a spoiled Mary Sue and you can't read at least 5 paragraphs without hearing "! "

Seriously, in the 3rd book, the original name of her lame band was Dorkalicious. Seriously. DORKALICIOUS. Are you kidding me?

I searched dork on Google and this is what it said

a dull, slow-witted, or socially inept person.
NORTH AMERICANvulgar slang
the penis. - ShopkinsLover

25 All of the female characters say OMG!

It is so annoying when girls say! It is like I never want to hear it again! Girls in Dork Diaries say that they look cute and popular when they say! I am saying it to Nikki Chloe and Zoey! Not only to Mackenzie and Jessica.

Wow, stereotype. - mayamanga

, they were roommates... - ACKREIK

The only time it’s not annoying to say “” is if you’re texting or something.

26 It's stupid and babyish

She gets pretty much everything she wants and whines about how nothing goes right for her. She clearly doesn't deserve a T.V. show ( what why does a 14yo have a T.V. show)

27 How ungrateful Nicki is

I totally agree!
Nikki has her own T.V show but to this day she is still complaining about how cruddy her life is. I mean seriously?!

She doesn't appreciate anything. She gets mad at her dad for having a job. she gets mad at her mom by saying she is brain dead. she doesn't care about her little sister. to be honest she doesn't deserve a T.V. show.

28 Nikki is an attention seeker

Yah think?!

29 Disrespects her family

She treats them like trash, right?

30 Mackenzie Hollister is way too mean

Book 1: She teased Nikki for breaking her art project.
Book 2: She laughed at Nikki when she got a plate of chocolate cake on her dress.
Book 3: She laughed at Nikki when Nikki ran to the bathroom.
Book 4: She called Nikki a "pathetic little phony".

31 Tells kids that school doesn't matter and that it's ok to flunk important exams.
32 Nikki Maxwell is too over dramatic

She is too over dramatic I just read the book not so friendly frenemy and she said she rather go to summer school than see mackenzie and she is always "blinking back tears"

33 The books keeps recycling old drawings

Same in book 13

In a lot of books, Rachel keeps overusing the photo of Mackenzie's eyes. The blog ALWAYS uses illustrations from the book. In "WHY I WILL NEVER TRAVEL WITH BRIANNA AGAIN! " and " WHY I WILL NEVER TRAVEL WITH BRIANNA AGAIN, PART TWO!," the pictures were used in the twelfth book.

34 It's a bad example for kids

Nikki should learn to do her work and get a life.

Love,kissing...Nikki is a student,she is supposed to be learning,not gossiping and acting like a brat.

35 Too much talking about dying

She also tried to drown herself for when she gets bullied a little.

Well in the second Nikki goes to a funeral to some person she doesn't know about but that doesn't count - BoyGenius234

In book 4, Nikki said " And they can drop dead for all I care."

Yet, nobody even dies. She just complains how she's going to die if Brandon doesn't talk to her for a day or if her parents don't buy her a cellphone. - Popsicles

36 Nikki is over dramatic

Nikki is super over dramatic

I just read the book not so friendly frenemy and she said that she rather go to summer school then see mackenzie and shes always "blinking back tears"

37 Full of ridiculous stuff
38 The girls act like Barbie dolls

Are’nt their any tomboys and smart people or nice girls

The only character who reads actual good books and is clever is Zoe and yet she gets on my nerves by saying! and BFFS FOreVeR.
I mean, there are absolutely no girls who don't like makeup in this!

39 Nikki is too young to have a date

Actually many 14 year olds date, so that in the book is not all that inaccurate

I mean like why would Nikki want to date when she is only 14?! This makes kids think that is is okay to date when they are not even mature enough. Dating at this age may affect their studies too! And why WCD would held a sweetheart dance like some kind of dating chances for students who are still not mature enough?!

40 The book is full of clichés.

I mean, seriously? It's honestly full of stereotypes and stuff. You got Prince Charming, the "dork" & the Devil herself, school-themed. Sure.


41 The book is only famous for being "relatable"

There is no character development. The main character is boring and whiny. Everyone is a stereotype, not to mention the writing. It sounds like the author just learned how to write with description and uses it in every single sentence. This kind of book doesn't need a description. What it could use is diversity, realisticness and more. The only reason this book is popular is because it's a beacon of light to girls that aren't popular in their schools.

42 Same story line

Okay,okay,I have a brilliant idea,I failed,I get forgiven.

43 Immature fanbase

One of the fans saw this list and told whoever made it (me) to kill themselves! - mayamanga

Totally, that fanbase is just as bad as Sonic SatAM fantards who don't accept others opinions. Jesus christ, those fanbases are treated as if they were gifts from a God. How insanely immature.

The fandom is full of little girls who are 12 and under. They make crappy OCs, recolours, fanfictions and drawings using circle tool and MS Paint. - Lunala

If you don't believe me, I was looking at reviews about the 9th book in Dork Diaries, and this girl wrote something like "blah blah blah I loveeed this book and stuff MacKenzie is a spoiled brat who eats poo". Really? - mayamanga

44 Nikki is a snob and bully

She bullies her sister and says mean things

She ignores her parents and says rude things about them, like how they made her wear blah blah blah, or the job her dad has, or whatever!

45 Nikki is a brat

In Dork Diaries 4, she said " I throw a temper tantrum whenever my parents ask me to clean up my room. Sometimes I'm such a brat! "

46 Nikki just wants to be a dork
47 Nikki looks up to some idiotic girly magazine about shopping, girlfriends,etc.
48 Nikki is a stupid girly girl
49 The book doesn’t even have new ideas for each book

Every book starts with something along the lines of
“ Mackenzie is the human version of poo 💩 / a snake 🐍 “
