Do you have an author that you dislike or hate?
As a general rule, I like to think that I don’t hate anyone, but if I had to pick someone for the least liked author award, it would go to Cassandra Clare.
I’ve never actually read any of her (very popular) work, and I quite enjoy watching Shadowhunters on the CW, which is based on her Mortal Instruments book series. I’m sure she even writes beautifully, but I’ve read too many article about the fact that the stories that made her so popular were stolen from another author. She’s dealing with legal issues about it, even after publishing a dozen books based on that original story.
The concept of Clare stealing the work of another author makes me sick, and makes me not want to give her any of my money.
