Start Date: February 1, 2012
End Date: February 1, 2013


Outsider/Rebel/Bluestocking Heroine - Tough, self-sufficient, self-thinking woman who will not conform just because she's told to by others or because society dictates it. A person who wishes to control her is barking up the wrong tree.

Winter Town by Stephen Emond --Lucy
The Disenchantments by Nina LaCour --Bev
Wallflower Heroine - Plain looking an overlooked by most but an extraordinary type of woman that excels at everything but small talk. Needs someone who can look beyond the surface and see her inner beauty.
Un Lun Dun by China Miéville--Deeba
Professional Heroine - Sometimes mistaken as being a bitch for using her authority, but she just knows how to handle people and will not be pushed around. Needs someone not intimidated by her brain or her authority and can give as good as they take.
Rich Girl Heroine - Rich and smart and a little spoiled, but has a good heart. Needs someone who'll appreciate her for her and not her money.

Pretty Little Liars (Pretty Little Liars #1) by Sara Shepard--Spencer
Spinster Heroine - Thought to be too old to ever marry, but possesses hidden passion and is too smart to settle for anything less than she deserves. She needs someone that has it all.
Woman Warrior/Kick-Butt Heroine - Tough, self-sufficient, uncompromising and needs someone that won't change her and accepts her the way she is -faults & all.
To Selena, With Love by Chris Perez--Selena
Minx/She-Devil Heroine - Mischievous, feisty, and self-thinking. Will give a person a run for their money and will be well worth it.
There is No Dog by Meg Rosoff--Estelle
Girl Next Door Heroine - She's pretty, smart, sweet, wholesome, but somewhat naïve. Most likely to fall for the boy next store.
Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma--Chloe
Paranormal Heroine - Strong, self-sufficient, and dangerous woman who won't put up with cr@p. Needs a person who can handle her and not be intimidated. Can be a witch, vampire, shape-shifter, etc.
