The twilight lady has a lot to answer for. Nothing against her personally, but her fans drive me nuts. Eugh.

Ah, SMeyer, what have you done to the reading world? The others may be cliche and/or horribly written, but they can still be entertaining if you approach them the right way. The Twilight books just flat out make no sense, and generally make you want to slam your head into the nearest wall upon reading them.

For me it'd be Dan Brown from the list. But I think I dislike Agatha Christie more than all of them here. Agatha pulls solutions out of her back pocket and people say she's a genius! And Dan Brown pretty much uses a program to write. He types in the subject, types in details and character names, and voila, a new book is written! Exactly the same style as all his other books, all his chapters end the same way, etc etc. But I don't exactly hate them. They found out what works EASY. That's good for them, they get money. Same with Stephenie Meyer.
Actually, Christopher Paolini's problem isn't entirely his fault. He's just a kid, he wrote his first book and he probably didn't have to face a stern enough editor who told him 'this is bad... go revise it', since his parents helped him publish it.

Long block of text, sorry.
PM me for fantasy critiques and short stories. Then pm me again to remind me of it.

2013 is the end of you idiots saying 2012 is the end.

I guess I'd say Stephanie Meyer. I read the first half of Twilight, and it was so bad that I just gave up. I mean, I know the other authors are bad, but at least I can get some enjoyment out of reading their books (except Nora Roberts), while that Twilight series is just so boring and...gah. It's awful.

I think this one is rather obvious for me. Stephanie Meyers, because she's turned almost teenage on earth into very creepy fans. -_-

You can guess who I chose. It's very predictable, but it's also true.

What's Stephen King doing on here? He can actually write, unlike the other hacks on the list.
