Moronic Monday: Amercia Singer

Mondays, the worst day of the week. Despite the fact that it's the start of your school/work week, there is always something extra that just pushes it to the next level. That someone that just permanently keeps Monday at the top of most dreaded days of the week. That's what this meme is about. The one character that drives you mad with their stupidity. Their idiocy is the type that you can spot their impending train wreck from miles away, the type that makes you want to slam their heads into a desk repeatedly. Moronic Mondays are not for your loveable idiots, no, it's for the ones that you think they deserve every bad thing they get it.

America Singer, the protagonist of of The Selection Trilogy by Kiera Cass. Book one, I was on board with America. She stood up for herself, after she was dumped, she didn't jump back into that relationship. I liked her. 

Then book 2 & 3 hit and I just..ugh. In The Elite, she strung Aspen and Maxon along. Her insecurities made her judge Maxon brutally, while she concealing her relationship with Aspen right under his nose. She had been honest with Maxon in The Selection about being there for her family and that she was in love with someone else, so why hide that he's working in the palace? Especially after her and Maxon became more than friends. If she would have just been honest, Maxon wouldn't have killed him, it's against his character completely as proven in The One. This stupidity caused a rift between America and Maxon all the way until the end of book three and almost destroyed their relationship. She wanted to be open and honest, but she was everything but, which is why she is my first candidate for Moronic Monday. 

If you guys have any ideas for any of my new memes, you can leave a comment or message me. I'd love to hear from you guys!

  1. So true! (Aspen too!) Also Zoe from House of Night series, Rose (specifically in the later books of the Vampire Academy), Bethany from Halo, Bianca from the Evernight series, Bella (and Jacob) from Twilight, Amberlynn from Therian, oh god can't forget Peeta.. Shay and Calla from Nightshade, Nora from Hush, Hush, Elena from the Vampire diaries, Kelsey from Tiger's Curse, Sam from Before I Fall, Anastasia from 50 Shades of Grey, Clary and Simon from The Mortal Instruments, Juliette from the Shatter Me series (ugh)... I have a lot!

  2. Wow, that's a lot of suggestions. Most of which I haven't even read but I definitely agree with Aspen from The Selection, I had a whole rant about him for the first book. Also, Elena, she just gets on my nerves. And I actually will be doing Juliette from Shatter Me, she's the reason I had to walk away from the trilogy after book 2.
