2 It Doesn't Get Enough Attention

This wouldn't make it bad, it would make it underrated. - RalphBob

I love how nf126 hates it - Fabricitem

3 Ripoff of Dear Dumb Diary

Dear Dumb Diary was released in 2013 and Dork Diaries was released in 2001...

I actually thought it was a movie adaption at first. But didn't dork diaries come out first?

I think it came out before Dear Dumb Diary - TwilightKitsune

Jamie acts like a tomboy Nikki doesn't, and also Angeline's friendly and Makensie isn't so I don't know why you call it a ripoff - BoyGenius234

4 Unfunny

There's a buttload of things wrong with this series. Its really, really bad. It tries far too hard to be funny, its unrealistic, stereotypical (especially to girls), and just so juvenile. However, a wonderful book to read before bed. It knocks me out like a light. - keycha1n

Now: What a waste of money and 10 days of my life. Let's review, shall we? Girl that claims she's a dork goes to school, meets the bully, the bully bullies her, then she falls for a guy and two girls that are scared of meatballs. It's horribly written, as it's mostly in capital, cliche similes and metaphors, all over the place, and Nikki is being so rude to her sister (who is the only character with common sense). Then she goes to an art show, Mackenize destroyed her artwork, and she still wins with all these crappy photos she turned in. The first eight books are all the same. She gets entered into an event, she is suck in a fine problem indeed, then she wins. Why can't she lose for once? It reminds me of every single book about middle school I ever read. Too many cliches. If that Latino didn't have enough time to actually think out of the box for once? And why is everyone complaining about ...more

Its funny, you guys are just jealous
I love all type of diary books same - SnowyAqua

5 No Good Books

I honestly think that this book series is ok, the author has definitely improved. The idea came from a good place as the author probably wanted to make a wimpy kid series for girls. There is some good writing and jokes in this but some may find NIKKI annoying and it’s understandable since she is very… expressive, but it is her diary so… 😂
There are a few words in this that are obviously replacing curses, but what did you expect, she is a 14 year old girl! Overall it is a nice series for beginner readers or tweens who are insecure because they can relate with Nikki as she doesn’t fit in at school and has low confidence. I would recommend to 9-14 year olds

6 It Never Gets Mentioned On Other Websites
7 Overuse of the Word "Dork"

I love rhe books and all but its true. Overuse if the word dork.

Oh, that's dorktastic. Yes, very dorkcharming indeed. I'm such a dorking dork, I will dork you all up. Dork off if you don't believe me. - TwilightKitsune

8 Brandon Is a Waste of Nikki's Time

I love whoever put this I like Mackenzie and him better than Nikki. at first it was cute but it got annoying

What's so good about him anyway? He's not even that cool

Why does Nikki even like him? He's just some one-dimensional pretty boy.

EXACTLY! Be a loser and date the guy who EVERYONE chases and assume that he likes you. Unlike the cool person who have accepted reality and went to chase one of the guys not everyone follows. - Fandom_Lover

9 It Makes You Angry When You Read It

So true, Nikki is such an attention seeking brat and it makes me so mad

Has anyone seen the fortnite page in the birthday party one also that book was literally the worst of the series, the series has totally gone downhill. it went from her to having genuine problems to "oh no my mom wont let me spend $500 on a birthday party"

10 It's Not Real

To the person who said "MOST BOOK STORIES aren't REAL", well this story was supposed to be based on real-life experiences. So don't be a smart ass OK?!

Ummm.. Newsflash, MOST BOOK STORIES aren't REAL GENIUS!

The Newcomers

? Wimpy Kid Rip Off

The Contenders

11 Nikki and Her Friends (Especially Brandon) Gets Expelled Into the Same School Where Mackenzie is and It Becomes Depressing Again!
12 Mackenzie Is the Worst Character Ever

I know right! Even Draco Malfoy wasn't that bad! Well maybe he was, but dude, his parents were death eaters so I get that. Mackenzie however, didn't learn magic, her parents weren't servants of Voldemort, she has NO excuse. She's a selfish brat and a jerk and a bully!

Mackenzie isn't like any other school bullies in real life. When I read book 9. She wanted to have Nikki expelled from school. Dude, no school bully in reality would do that! Neither are any of the school bullies in movies, cartoons, books and comics and stuff.

Hell No! Mewberty Is By FAR WORSE. And Mackenzie isn't real. Why? Because THIS SERIES DOES NOT EVEN EXIST - TheKirbyCreeper999

No way. Nikki is far worse - mayamanga

13 All the Girls are Tacky and Girly

I know! They only care about what they look like and how popular they are. I mean, not one of then is a tomboy

Like seriously, not one of them plays football, doesn't care about their clothes and watches interesting things on the T.V..

14 It Wastes Your Time

Dork diaries is so useless, all it does is talk about materialistic things and boy stuff, it does not do kids any good reading it. Kids should find something better to d.

It's so easy and short you can read like three of them in a day. It doesn't waste you any time.

15 It Makes Fun of People with Braces

I mean they were all like, SORRY CHLOE IT WASN'T ME though and then when the see Mackenzie their just like, OOH UGLY CRAP LMAO. Not a good lesson for young kids.

Ikr! Nikki was laughing at Mackenzie's 6th-grade photo and Mackenzie was harassing Chloe for that too!

16 Everyone is White

- Anonymous

17 Nikki Doesn't Even Try to Put Herself in Other People's Shoes

I mean just think, she's always acting so innocent when really she's probably the bully. Mackenzie might have had a bad past, maybe even she was bullied when she was little. Probably by Brandon. In book 9 he was laughing about when Mackenzie had braces in year 6!

18 It's Predictable

Yeah, when I read the books, I could easily guess what was gonna happen next and how it would end!

19 It's the Same Plot Line Every Time

I mean come on! It's always "Oh no! Makenzie did this! Oh no! Brandon that! "

20 It Encourages Kids to Write Mean Things About Others
21 Over use of the word 'OMG'
22 Nikki is a Brat
23 Characters are Idiots
24 Nikki is One of Those People Who Tries Too Hard to Be Someone She's Not

She wants to be one of those people who never fit in, and are special because of that, but she tries way too hard

25 Nikki is a Selfish Jerk
26 Nikki Can Remember Everything Everyone Says

Ok, so if you keep a diary, you'd know the main layout of your day and roughly remember your conversations. But Nikki SOMEHOW has all her chats stored in her brain. Every single WORD. If this was realistic like a proper diary, she wouldn't.
