Top Ten Worst Authors

These are the people who claim to be authors but really just create boring, talentless books and give writers a bad example. But it is very rare and that's a good thing.
The Top Ten
1 Stephenie Meyer

And then that unmemorable fanfiction of twilight that is fifty shades of gray. we had to suffer through those

It's her fault the world had to go through the torture that is Twilight

I like your style

2 Adolf Hitler Adolf Hitler (April 20, 1889 - April 30, 1945) was a German politician who was the leader of the Nazi Party, Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945, and Führer of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945.

I think mass genocide is worse than the other authors here.

He's messed up

3 E.L James

5 Karl Marx Karl Marx was a German philosopher, economist, historian, political theorist, sociologist, journalist and revolutionary socialist. Born in Trier to a middle-class family, Marx studied law and Hegelian philosophy.

For one thing, he is an actual writer, which I believe puts him ahead of Bieber automatically. Second, he wrote the "Communist Manifesto", which introduced one of the most, if not THE most, evil governments in history. And the communist governments actually operated under a WEAKER version of communism. Marx's original version is far, far worse than, say, Stalin's was. The other authors may be bad writers, but that's all they are-bad writers. Karl Marx, with his writing, created pure evil. There is absolutely no reason why he should not be number one.

Supreme example of the insolence in German academia of the 19th century. Edgy. Self-righteous. Not applicable to reality.

6 Paris Hilton Paris Whitney Hilton is an American businesswoman, socialite, television personality, model, actress, singer, DJ, and author.

She's an author?

7 J.K. Rowling Joanne Rowling, CH, OBE, FRSL, FRCPE, writing under the pen names J. K. Rowling and Robert Galbraith, is a British novelist, philanthropist, film and television producer and screenwriter best known for writing the Harry Potter fantasy series.

Harry Potter is a crappy, overrated book series. It basically starts out with "poor Harry, look at how he is unfairly treated by EVERYONE in sight! " *sniffles* The plot is unrealistic if a kid got adopted/taken in by another relative, you'd think the SCHOOL would call CPS based on how unprepared and underdressed he is at school.
Then all of a sudden he becomes this famous, prophesised, beautiful child, and everything goes right for him without even trying.
I know people will hate this, but it's MY opinion

Hermione is black. Harry is gay. Ron is bisexual. Dumbledore had an affair with one of the male wizard teachers in the university. What's next? She calls the readers gay? And she's a SJW just trying too hard.

She's transphobic and potentially racist. Rowling is a terrible writer and her books are terrible as well.

J.K Rowling wrote her own fanfiction.

8 Rachel Renee Russell

We have different opinions and this is how the real-world works. You are entitled to your own opinion, but you don't have the right to bash other's thoughts or force your opinion into our minds.
I'm sorry to say this, but Rachel Renee Russell is one of the most terrible authors and isn't a very good person. We have the right to state opinions and I'm sorry to say this.

I have evidence. That's right, facts and lists don't care about your feelings, so you go get a life.

I really don't like her and Dork Diaries is her worst series ever.

9 Glenn Beck
10 Charles Darwin Charles Robert Darwin was an English naturalist and geologist, best known for his contributions to evolutionary theory.

Among his works are the Alex Cross, Michael Bennett, Women's Murder Club, Maximum Ride, Daniel X, NYPD Red, Witch and Wizard, and Private series, as well as many stand-alone thrillers, non-fiction and romance novels.

He is literally an idiot to write such illicit novels like Maximum Ride and Murder suspect whatnot. I hate him

Utter, utter, utter, utter s..
Well, you get it.

14 Ann Coulter Ann Hart Coulter is an American conservative social and political commentator, writer, syndicated columnist, and lawyer.

Wrote terrible sci-fi novels, then made one of his sci-fi novels into a terrible religion

17 George R. R. Martin George Raymond Richard Martin (born George Raymond Martin), also known as George R. R. Martin, is an American author known for his epic fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire, which was later adapted into the famous HBO series Game of Thrones.

"If I were really cynical I would start some medieval sword and sorcery thing, say it's a trilogy, then keep writing it for the rest of my life."
-George R. R. Martin, 1981

Doesn't matter how many Rs you add to your name, if you write rape-porn for self indulgent wallowers, and do nothing to bring recognition, compassion to the evils of war, you are still just a dirty old man who has contributed nothing towards the betterment of society. His popularity and lack of legitimate commentary just goes to show how sick humans are.

18 George W Bush George Walker Bush is an American politician and businessman who was born in July 6, 1946. He served as the 43rd President of the United States from 2001 to 2009 and 46th Governor of Texas from 1995 to 2000. He is the eldest son of Barbara and George H. W.
19 Anne Rice
20 Alex Jones

His "novels" make me want to shoot myself.

21 Ayn Rand
22 Jeff Kinney

@Vote cast - I don't know, maybe his books got too much hatred on this website.

Jeff Kinney is awesome why should he be on this list?

23 Nicholas Sparks

His books are the same basically, he rips off most ideas from his previous work, changes some things here and there and then it's a new book, it's super lame.

24 Thomas Dixon Jr.
25 William Shakespeare William Shakespeare was an English poet, playwright, and actor, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist.

I respect him, but I can't understand a single word in his books!
"Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs"
