Dan brown 's book. I somehow cannot like any of his book . They never appeal to me . I remember I bought Da Vinci Code after all the hype and was expecting it to be good . But it just dissapointed me! Also Paulo Cohelo books are over-hyper ESP " The winner can't stand alone"

It has to be twilight. There isn't anything else worthy of being called trashy ROFL sorry fans, but i really didn't get what the hype was all about!
Apart from bella's swooning over edward's beauty, what really was there?
No character development! Bella was portrayed a VERY weak female who possibly depended on her husband to do everything for her. There isn't a good plot.
Butchering of myths! Like how on earth did vampires begin to sparkle?
Edward's really boring at times, Sleepy and really corny.
Jacob imprinting on a child (who biologically can't exist!) was funny and disgusting, considering the fact that he once loved her mother. Ew!
And one of the many reasons why i detest that book is because people compare it to HARRY POTTER! Like seriously! do they have nothing else to do that compare a rock with a diamond?
Oh and yes, Smeyer's style of writing is pathetic. She uses synonyms for 'perfect','flawless' etc. We get the point Smeyer! Now get a move on with the plot! But no, still there reading an entire passage dedicated to his beauty! Dead

There are so many to name but one book that i found trashy was Salman Rushdie's Midnight's Children. I felt it was an out and out overhyped book and complete trash.
