Moronic Monday: Lena Haloway

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 lovable idiots, no, it's for the ones that you think they deserve every bad thing they get it.

Lena and I were pals while I was reading Delirium but once we got to Pandemonium and especially Requiem, her and I were no longer buds. My problem with her began with the fact that she never went back to look for Alex, she had no confirmation that he was actually dead but didn't bother to look into it. Then when Julian comes along, she fights tooth and nail to save his life.

Additionally throughout Requiem she barely tries to even get on normal speaking terms with Alex. She loves him, is constantly thinking about him, but after one conversation at the beginning of the book she pretty much writes off their entire relationship. She just gives up. Who does that?
