What is the most overrated book?

Ok bookworms, don’t get mad at me for this one because I know there are a lot of fandoms out there and a lot of you probably like this one. The most overrated book in my opinion is Twilight by Stephanie Meyers (the whole series actually).

41865

I feel like everyone knows the synopsis of this book but I will still put one just in case.

Synopsis: In the first book of the Twilight Saga, internationally bestselling author Stephenie Meyer introduces Bella Swan and Edward Cullen, a pair of star-crossed lovers whose forbidden relationship ripens against the backdrop of small-town suspicion and a mysterious coven of vampires. This is a love story with bite.

Now don’t get me wrong, I did enjoy the book and read the entire series in high school. But the reason I think this book is very overrated is because it received so much attention from the media and was over sexualized with actors/actresses (plus it started the whole vampire fetish thing that went on for awhile).

Stephanie Meyers is a brilliant writer and knows exactly what to say in her books to draw her audience in. She knows how to get a teen girl’s blood pumping with promise of forbidden love and fangs/fur.

Let me know what you think is the most overrated book in the comments! I am very curious to see what everyone else thinks on this topic 🙂
