P.S. Almost everybody I know hated Fifty Shades. I wonder how it became a bestseller! Confused

That's because fools like me went ahead to bookstores and bought the book anyway to satisfy their curiosity and read the whole shit before declaring that it was SHIT!

Fifty Shades of Grey, for sure.  One of the worst, no actually THE worst book I've ever read. I don't even know why I picked it up.

Twilight is next on the list. I have tried to read it but gave up after just a few pages.

I have never counted any Mills and Boon I have happened to read (very few and regret even that)
Danielle Steele was bogus too.
Twilight-finished the first 1 somehow but wowed to not touch another in the series Dead

I won't say 50 shades since everyone above me has mentioned it. Another book i absolutely despise is Beautiful Disaster by Jamie Mcguire. It has no plot, no story line. The hero tht we're supposed to swoon over is a psycho path. Remember tht scene from the movie Vaada where Zayed khan and Amisha patel r in a restaurant/cafe and a guy comes and attempts to flirt wid amisha which prompts zayed to repeatedly stab the guy's hand wid a fork? Yeah this hero is psyco path on tht level, maybe evem more.

All the books by Durjoy Dutta..It has zero substance, no gripping plot.. actually it has only lust.
Not worth reading.

As much as I like D.H. Lawrence, I absolutely hated Sons & Lovers. I know its regarded as a classic and is also semi-autobiographical but it was a real pain to read. The story, the geographical landscape, the characters are all extremely depressing and dreary. It also comes across as very sexist at times. Probably the only book I never finished and don't care to as well.
 
Also Mills & Boon books. I promptly forget what the story was after I finish reading.
