Top Ten Worst Books Ever

This is the opposite of the BEST books ever written. Just ask yourself what was that one book that stood out from the rest? The one that you could just not possibly finish reading?

The Top Ten

1 Twilight

Worst book ever. I didn't even make it through the first chapter. Do not read this book. Go read something awesome like Harry Potter or The Hunger Games instead.

I originally tried the first book out of curiosity. I thought to myself, "Eh, it's okay. It's kind of cheesy and corny, but it's original at least, and the details in the writing are pretty good." So I read the next two books. The second was also okay though in both the first and second (and the third) the character was incredibly stupid and overly dependent on her boyfriend. By the third book...ugh. The main character, Bella Swan, is the opposite of a strong female protagonist. She even says the her boyfriend is like a drug for her, and when everyone she cares about is put in danger, she just sits in the corner watching. The book implies that women shouldn't get to make their own decisions in relationships, all of their choices should be made for them. The romance isn't even sweet; her boyfriend is overprotective and manipulative. Clearly, Bella payed no attention in health class, because their relationship is the definition of an abusive relationship. It was getting so bad, that I ...more

Twilight is really bad. It has a corny love story, zero character development and zero plot development. It's just a story about a human that falls in love with a vampire. That's IT. Nothing more. I'm really happy that now it's not as popular as it used to be.

Let's talk about the difference between hermione and bella.
Hermione: my love left me. I'll keep on fighting and stay strong though!
Bella my love left me. * jumps of a cliff *

2 Fifty Shades of Grey

Twilight isn't the greatest but this book is clearly the saddest book of society. Like who the heck wants to read a book about some guy who likes satan and whipping his girlfriend. Personally to me it's disgusting not sexy.

This should be number one. Twilight may be horrible, but Fifty Shades is horrible fanfiction based off of it. The only thing this book is good for is a round of laughs at the atrocious writing. The fact that it's only sex is not the main problem; that would be the poor quality of the sex. I fail to see how anyone can be aroused by this.

This is a poor excuse of a film and book series. No development, graphic and laughably bad detail, and ass characters that are one-dimensional. Women only crave for the "sex", yet they tell men to stop watching porn. Hypocrisy. And this is coming from a woman.

Poorly written and basically promotes sexual violence - Ang2001

3 Mein Kampf

I think it's an interesting thing, to read a book by such a hated person. It's interesting to see the point of view of the bad guy, who did all sorts of unforgivably cruel things, instead of the good guy. Not in any way am I saying that Hitler is good or anything remotely close to it. It's just a refreshing change.

Just because it was made by Hitler doesn't make it bad. This is actually a GREAT book! I even read this and it was awesome! It had awesome perspectives and ideals! I may not completely agree with them, but they're worth looking at! I even plan to buy this!

Hitler wrote this book, the title roughly translates to 'My Struggle' and in this beauty Hitler blames the Jews for his problems. It was written from Hitler's prison cell before he came out and began his political campaign.

Just thought I'd keep everyone in the loop

This is a really good book- it has great historical meaning and that

4 Justin Bieber: First Step 2 Forever

I was seven when I saw this book at Walmart, and before reading the title, I thought it was a girl on the cover. Oh wait. It's Justin Bieber. Still a girl on the cover. My bad! - RockFashionista

1) Stupid fans of Justin Bieber should start hating him because HE IS A CRIMINAL.

2) Those who buy this book are dumb stupid nerds.

3) Can you notice Justin Bieber's lipstick on the poster?

4) Don't listen to any of his songs.

5) Buy this book, waste your money and your time reading this awful book.

6) MAKE THIS NUMBER 1!

This shows that Justin Bieber haters are no better than the fans... - phantomblock

I knew this would be on the list.

NO! This is the best book ever.Justin Bieber is the greatest singer all time.I want him to spit on me and he pees in mop buckets - DarkBoi-X

5 New Moon

Oh god! The second Twilight book, and it gets worse. Now Bella hooks up with an ugly whiny werewolf who's as bad as Edward. Don't read this crap, Bella is boring and the worst example of all humanity. Also, Edward is a girly disgrace to vampires and Jacob is just as bad. Screw Twilight, it's crap!

It's so annoying too, about Bella's character. Oh you have a cute, loyal, kind best friend who helped you through everything but you still like this boy that you only started to like because of his "perfect" face.

I really wish that I Am David was on this list but eh this book sucks so much as well. As some of you may know I have decided to read the whole Twilight series to try and not make my hate for the series based on presumptions and I just finished this book. Yeah from what I'm reading so far the whole Twilight series sucks. (I'll have a review of this book posted on the list to give out a further analysis on why I dislike it so much). - Anonymousxcxc

7 To Kill a Mockingbird

ARE YOU KIDDING ME! This book is a masterpiece! I loved this book. I loved the characters and the plots and the ending and the narration, and it has such great lessons that people still ignore today. The only reason people don't like this is because racist and far right groups hate it and try to ban it because it makes them look like jerks. The fact that this is right above mien kemph makes me sick.

What the hell is this doing on here? This is one of my favorites!

The people who voted this book here are the same people who watch Transformers and Adam Sandler movies.

I didn't mean to vote pardon me this book was a beautiful book also when they go hunting for mockingbirds and kill them and the son becomes a deer. LOVED IT

8 Middle School: My Brother Is a Big, Fat Liar

Ugh. I hate kids books now, especially this disgrace. I don't understand why this girl in this book thinks she's the best, because she's NOT. The pictures also are ok, but if this is meant for children, please don't make anymore books about toilet humor, exaggeration, drama, and instead read a GOOD book with a plot, good characters, and doesn't have terrible jokes.

I remember reading this in 6th grade and getting really annoyed with the main character.

While it's no masterpiece, I remember loving this book as a nine year old, and feeling connected to the main character, because we both didn't really fit in.

I enjoyed Georgia in the other Middle School books, but even then I can say this book is pretty bad for the series.

9 William Shakespeare Star Wars

This book sounds quite awesome actually.
Through I have to admit, I have not yet read it.

This book is pretty good, to be honest. Like, it's not like Douglas Adams levels of humor, but it works. It's creative, fun, and a good read.

I've read this, actually, and to be honest, it's really good. The prose is well-done, and it gives a little more insight into the characters. - Phenenas

This book would not work. Darth Vader as SHAKESPHERE?!?
I have not read it, but this must be an English or Social Studies teacher's attempt to make history interesting.

10 Dork Diaries: Tales from a Not-So-Talented Pop Star

Ahem. Let me get this out first and then start shooting me. This book sucks. Yep. It sucks deep. First of all, the characters are so stereotypical; we have the mean girl whose only concern is to beat Nikki, we have those athletic types, the nerdy types and then, we have that supposed 'dork'. Two things: the fact that she calls herself dork is not only cliche but also spastic, cause dorks are not at all like that, and also, she proves in the book that she only cares about boys and stuff (totally girly and anti-feministic). Moreover, degrading herself by calling herself a dork, while she definitely isn't, makes her look dishonest and prat. Another bad thing about the book is that it encourages girls to care about material possessions, their appearance and boys--the end. Nothing else. Like, what! That is a very bad message. Nikki is also a Mary Sue. Like, a very big Mary Sue. I hate her shallowness sometimes.

If you want to read a good funny book, pick up Diary of a Wimpy Kid. ...more

Publisher: "Let's see, how do we make buck without giving the new book any thought... Hm..."

Author: "I know, let's take the character from Diary of a Wimpy kid and make him a girl! "

Editor: "Brilliant! "

If you like it, fine. That's you, not me. But I don't like it. Why? It's too stereotypical for my taste. MLP and Total Drama make stereotypes work, and MLP characters are only about borderline stereotypes. It also isn't realistic, because the characters don't act like real girls in school. Just Saying.

Worse than MLP.

12 The Bible

As a Hindu, I can't believe that the Bible is on here. I have relatives who are Christian, and I think that it is wrong to put any holy book/writing on a top ten worst list. You can have the opinion that it sucks, but please don't insult others by saying it is the worst book. Just leave religious books out of this. There are people out there who put their faith in this book.

Hey! This is a religious book! Don't even the Christian beliefs and keep your opinions to yourself!

Keep your opinion to yourself? This website is about sharing your opinion, dude! - CreamOfConnor

This is really offensive to Christians. Keep your opinions to yourselves, please. This whole website isn't about facts. This whole top ten things are just other people's opinions. Please be respectful to others opinions. But the Bible shouldn't be on this list. Whoever put this up is saying half the world is stupid. Many people are Christians, and they follow the words of this Book.

15 Allegiant - Veronica Roth

Allegiant is a different book. It does not go by the general main-character-don't-die rule. It is awesome. But the ending was not good. I was sad for one week after reading this. But I like it only because it's unique

Think about it this way she was weak from the death serum, so she couldn't fight back, and she was former Abnegation, and Four was always saying don't let your Abnegation get you killed and it ends up happening she died because she saved Caleb from going in and dying she was being selfless and brave by going in. Abnegation and Dauntless.

Allegiant is a horrible book! What sick twisted author would even kill the main character?! The book itself is also very confusing and boring, so basically my least favorite book

Bleh. I’ll be honest, I didn’t care about this series. The first book was good up until the end, when things just started happening randomly. The second book was just boring, but the third book took the cake. I will admit, I didn’t really give one about Tracey, I thought she was shallow and bland but the book was just so drawn out I struggled to finish it.

I read all four books of the Twilight saga (REGRET) but this one literally made me hate the characters and the whole plot of the story. Nothing happened and the scene when Jacob imprints on Bella's daughter was disgusting. At least it's the last book... thank you Stephanie Meyer!

20 A Tale Dark and Grim

What? This book was amazing! Even though it was filled with blood and gore, it was still really good because it really had a twist on fairy tales. It made adults and teens want to pick up this book and read it, not like some stupid old tale about Cinderella or The Beauty and the Beast. Adam Gidwitz really took into consideration the actual tales, and tried to make them more interesting. This is a risk knowing that many people might not like the blood, but it had a really meaningful touch if you think about it. The second book was bae though. Was very touching and meant a lot.

Who on earth put this little gem here? I'm aware that it's dark and all, but can you really say you weren't forewarned? It's in the title! This book does not deserve to be on this list. I'd actually recommend it, provided I thought the person could handle a little gore.

Why? I know that this is about opinions, but this book is awesome!

Gore doesn't equal scary.

21 The Adventures of Captain Underpants

I loved this series when I was little! I know adults would think this series is stupid & boring, but it's not meant for adults. It's meant for little kids. The stupid, crude humor & tons of silly pictures are interesting to little kids. They love that stuff.

All harry potter books are overrated garbage

No Harry Potter is a good series but this is my least favorite

Compared to all the Percy Jackson books and series, Harry Potter is TRASH! Percy Jackson makes Harry Potter look like Lindsay Lohan! Harry Potter is nice and all, good detail, but if you think about it, anyone could have written that book. Percy Jackson defeated Kronos, Atlas, giants, titans, a cyclops, fought a MANY gods and goddesses, and killed MANY more mosters, including some of his relatives. Harry Potter killed Voldemort. It took SEVEN YEARS to kill ONE person! I mean COME ON! IT TOOK PERCY JACKSON SIX YEARS TO SLAY ALL THOSE MONSTERS, EVIL DEMIGODS, GIANTS, TITANS, CYCLOPSES, AND MANY MORE! In the Percy Jackson world, there are roman and greek gods and demigods. Tons of plots, monsters, challenges, the characters have flaws which make them unique, and so much more. J.K Rowling just said "Wizards and Witches have wands and they do magic and spells" then she just added a bunch of magic castles, treats, classes BLAH BLAH BLAH!

Nikki's a whiny spoiled brat that doesn't realize what her parents go through yet she still nags them for a damn iPhone! - Catacorn

I knew a girl who was obsessed with this series, and was constantly egging me on to try it out. At my school, for Elementary, we have this event called Book Parade, and she was Nikki and another girl was Mackenzie- and they tried to pay a boy with two hundred class dollars (we had this thing called class economy that we did in class) to be...what's his name...Brendan. The actual book kind of sucks. Nikki isn't what you would call the best role model for girls. She's obsessed with this one stupid guy called Brendan, and won't think about anything but him. She whines about everything, and is so annoying. I didn't read the whole thing, but I read enough.
