Lisarenee | 7659 comments This challenge is a collaboration of things talked about in the My Hero Challenge by Galla, Gabrielle, Mary, Nairabell, and a wee bit from me. Did I forget anyone? See we told you we have the best members. ;)

For this challenge read one or more books for each of the following types of Heroine. You set the pace/time and the amount of books of each type of heroine you wish to read. Most of all have fun!

Easy 1 - 3 books for every type of heroine.
Moderate 4 - 8 books for every type of heroine.
Difficult 9 + books for every type of heroine.

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.
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.
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.
Brainiac Heroine - Smarter than your average bear and willing to use that to her advantage. Needs someone that will not be intimidated by her brain and can hold their own.
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.
Minx/She-Devil Heroine - Mischievous, feisty, and self-thinking. Will give a person a run for their money and will be well worth it.
Girl Next Door Heroine - She's pretty, smart, sweet, wholesome, but somewhat naïve. Most likely to fall for the boy next store.
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.

message 9: by Sans (new)

Sans Great idea! I'm in for the easy level.


Gabrielle Blaque/~Bhlack Benehvolence~ (werewolfgrl1) | 417 comments Ok question I found a book that might work for the Rich Girl Heroine, she's the daughter of a senator and is forced to live in a world where she feels like an outsider I don't think she's really spoiled.

I think she'd also fit in well with the Outsider/Rebel/Bluestocking Heroine, but I'm a little unsure because she's the daughter of a senator.

Any opinions?

I'd put her in whichever category seems most difficult to you. Then, if someone else comes up who seems to fit a difficult category more easily, I'd move her. :)

Gabrielle Blaque/~Bhlack Benehvolence~ (werewolfgrl1) | 417 comments I need an opinion, has anyone read Night Pleasures by Sherrilyn Kenyon? in your opinion which category do you think Amanda Devereaux fits in the best?

I'm thinking about putting her in either The Professional Heroine category or The Brainiac Heroine category? Any opinions?


Gabrielle Blaque/~Bhlack Benehvolence~ (werewolfgrl1) | 417 comments Lisarenee wrote: "Let me know if any of the definitions need tweaking."

Lisa I was curious would The Outsider/Rebel/Bluestocking Heroine also maybe include adventurous?

Either would work :)


message 24: by Lisarenee (last edited Feb 23, 2011 03:50AM) (new)

Lisarenee | 7659 comments You got me with the adventurous heroine Gabrielle. I'm not sure. Maybe it's another type of heroine altogether. I'm thinking she doesn't quite fit into The Outsider/Rebel/Bluestocking category. They're ones looking to change something or not conform to something society does.

I guess the other question would be do they also fall into one of the other categories?


Gabrielle Blaque/~Bhlack Benehvolence~ (werewolfgrl1) | 417 comments I was just curious, thanks guys!


Gabrielle Blaque/~Bhlack Benehvolence~ (werewolfgrl1) | 417 comments I was just wondering is it ok to use a book for this challenge if your already using it for the My Hero challenge?


message 27: by Sans (new)

Sans I don't see why not. We double count books for other challenges so the same should hold true for the hero/heroine challenge.


Gabrielle Blaque/~Bhlack Benehvolence~ (werewolfgrl1) | 417 comments I didn't think anyone would mind but I don't like making assumptions if I can help it that's why I asked. Thanks Sans!


message 29: by Alicia (new)

Alicia For anyone who has read The Gargoyle, do you think I could put Marianne into any of these categories? She's probably not a very good fit for any of them, except maybe "woman warrior", but I'm worried that might be stretching a bit too much.


message 30: by Galla (new)

Galla | 110 comments Marianne's tough to fit into a category! If you wanted to stretch a bit, you could probably put her in outsider/rebel, since she's so unconventional. Professional might work, too--she's not what comes to mind when I think of the category, but she is hardcore about her sculpting.


message 31: by Alicia (new)

Alicia Thanks Galla! I think I will just leave her out for now. I don't want to feel like I cheated, haha.


Gabrielle Blaque/~Bhlack Benehvolence~ (werewolfgrl1) | 417 comments I was curious about something? I'm reading this book right now about a girl that might fit in well in the Wallflower category.

The thing is she's not really plain by any stretch of the imagination, but she does have a couple of features that might be overlooked by normal people, she's also sort of seen as an oddity do you think she might be good for this category?

message 34: by Alicia (last edited Mar 04, 2011 09:22AM) (new)

Alicia Anyone have thoughts on Grace from Shiver? I was thinking she is maybe Girl Next Door? She is fairly wholesome, sweet, agreeable, kind of passive, and she prefers to spend time at home cooking and reading rather than going out. She doesn't fall for the boy next door exactly, lol, but he lives behind her house.. even if he does live in the woods and not in a house.


message 35: by Nairabell (new)

Nairabell | 303 comments I agree with girl next door, and the woods are pretty much next door to her house so.... :)

Haha, exactly! Thanks, I think I'll go with that. Was just curious what others would categorize her as. :)

message 46: by Sans (new)

Sans Is anyone else having a hard time finding different heroines? I'm thinking I'm either reading the wrong genres (where the heroines are somewhat limited in their personality types) or I'm so caught up in the heroes that I'm simply not paying attention to the heroine.


message 47: by Kristina (new)

Kristina (kristinalawhead) I am, Sans. I agree, I think I don't read the right type of books like you said. There are some I could really stretch to make fit the descriptions. I'm gonna keep tryin :)


message 48: by Sans (new)

Sans Glad to know I'm not alone. And I think stretching things could be considered creative thinking!


message 49: by Kristina (new)

Kristina (kristinalawhead) I like the way you think! Haha


message 50: by Alicia (new)

Alicia I'm finding there are tons and tons of outsider/rebel and paranormal heroines, but very few of some of the other types like professional, wallflower, brainiac. I'm not sure if it's a reflection of the types of books I read, or if it's just a more general reflection of the types of heroines that are more popular for authors to write right now.
