message 1: by Beth (new)

Beth I don't think Pride and Prejudice belongs on this list. Sure, it's about a strong-willed woman. But the main plot line of the book is about how a strong-minded woman makes several WRONG assumptions and is taught a lesson about prejudice by, umm...a man. I like Lizzie, don't get me wrong. And cudos for refusing to marry Mr. Collins and all that. But girl power? I'd say that's a strech. For girl power, give me Buffy the Vampire Slayer any day.


message 2: by Libby (new)

Libby Ames That's why you need to vote Beth. It weights the votes people give. I agree that it definitely shouldn't be first on the list, but only other votes move it down. Also, I don't think people realize that you can add books of your own to the list and expand it. That's what I really wanted to do--get ideas of more available girl power books.


message 3: by Adam (new)

Adam Haha, this is a great list.

message 8: by Rita (last edited Dec 05, 2012 03:20PM) (new)

Rita Why the hell is Twilight here ? Since when does Bella have girl power ? Jesus, I should just kill myself.


message 9: by M/Ðɑηηɑ (new)

M/Ðɑηηɑ Twilight gets in any list there is! 'ya realistic fiction' twilight pops up. PEOPLE, THINK TWICE BEFORE ADDING BOOKS!

We are surrounded by idiots --' !


message 11: by M/Ðɑηηɑ (new)

M/Ðɑηηɑ Rita, what do you mean? You mean that Twilight should be here, or not?


message 12: by Rita (new)

Rita definitely not! Bella is your weird looking, loner girl. After becoming a vamp she does have strength but that's not all that makes a woman have girl power.


message 13: by M/Ðɑηηɑ (new)

M/Ðɑηηɑ Oh, good, I thought you meant otherwise. I'm completely by your side.

Deleted for miscategorizing: Twilight
