I'll edit this with a big RAMBLE later.

I'm curious to see what everyone thinks.

Twilight series is def. up there on the most overrated (mainly Edward is over-rated).

Also, the catcher in the rye..oh god, oh so over hyped.

Oh , I've come across a few, and the one that springs to mind is those Chetan Bhagat Series !

And Twilight - I havent read it so can't really comment, but a lot of people I know think that it is over-rated , especially calling ti the next Harry Potter phenomena!

@dream - agree the harry potter series are awesomeand I am huge fan myself, but twilight being touted as the next phenomena was a bit odd considering the genres of the books itself is quite different!

I haven't read Twilight so can't really comment but I disagree about Catcher in the Rye.. it's one of the good books I have read and it really touched my heart.

I can't think of any over-rated books... But I do think that many plays by Shakespeare are overrated!  Please I don't mean to offend Shakespeare's fans at all and I have read many plays by him but my most favorites ones are not in the top Shakespeare's plays list at all instead Romeo and Juliet is and I don't like it at all.

Nice to know that everyone is on board about twilight being overrated. I actually read twilight in the summer of 2007..before it got insanely popular.. Stephenie Meyer in whole is sooo overated. She's merely mediocre. Only reason why it got to this level is because of the silly infatuation with Edward Cullen.. im personally a team jacob girl (:

Catcher in the rye is good..but it did not live up to the expectations I had for it.. I mean the book is HUGE. Mark Chapman was mad over it [he killed john lennon].. and I didn't really catch on to what was so enticing about Holden.. I liked holden, he was sweet? [lack of better word] and yet so off.

Also, lovely bones by alice sebold.. the book could've been so amazing.. great setup and a fantastic hook right from the start.. I did cry a couple of times..but the ending was so weird and stupid.. and I hated how in one page is quickly rushed what "happens" to Mr. Harvey [he was the villian].



and Twilight is clearly no Harry Potter..
