Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer Report Abuse
A freaky vampire/human baby who is suddenly soulmates with a werewolf? A dismal end to an otherwise great series.

Fifty Shades of Grey by EL James Report Abuse
A piece of Twilight fan fiction is a bestseller? A weak protagonist and a male lead with major issues was not appealing at all.

50 Reasons Why by Jay Asher Report Abuse
A melodramatic and unrealistic look at teen suicide. Main character was completely unsympathetic and dialogue cringeworthy.
