I've looked it up and all I found that its "mediocres", but never hearing it makes me confused. I wanna use it in a similar sentence: "all the books I've read are mediocres". Is that correct? What could be the best alternatives if not.

    In English you don’t pluralize adjectives. dictionary.cambridge.org/it/dizionario/inglese/mediocre – user240918 Nov 22 '18 at 18:21
  • Thank you. What would be a proper usage here then? All I've read are mediocre books? Or All the books I've read are mediocre? Excuse my unawareness. – NA. Nov 22 '18 at 18:30

    @NA.: Some adjectives (in some contexts) can be used as nouns, but not mediocre. – FumbleFingers Nov 22 '18 at 19:14
  • NJA, how is this different from "what's the plural of good/bad/indifferent"? – Robbie Goodwin Nov 22 '18 at 19:23

    "All the books I've read are mediocre" is correct English. As is "All I've read are mediocre books." But the first sounds better, to my ear. – ab2 Nov 22 '18 at 19:54
