The Great Heroine Round-up! Readers please comment!



Dear readers,

I'm still 'on vacation' which has definitely been rejuvenating in that I'm not feeling as exhausted and crabby. Having the holidays over—and getting to see The Hobbit—has made a huge difference. Now I'm working hard on meeting my 75 books read in 2012 goal for Goodreads, one to go! Then it'll be a busy week with taking all the decorations down, the boy back in school, and getting a jump on goals for the new year.

In the meantime, I was checking my email and had a note that brought a big smile to my face.

Years ago I grew quite disenchanted with the porny changes in a series I had been a big fan of. There's a difference between erotica and porn and the author really lost track of how to plot a story and in doing so made me not simply lose interest in the series but actively seek something with similar traits minus the orgies. (If you don't know which series I'm referring to yet don't worry, you're not missing anything).

Once I began finding some great heroines in similar stories I started a list on Amazon for other readers facing the same dilemna and through it a reader found me here and emailed me for some help. She's seeking witty heroines that lean into the fantasy to urban fantasy genre so in addition to some of my own suggestions I thought I'd do a quick call-out to you guys, because I know that together we have an extensive list of heroines we love. The reader is seeking non-romances but the stories can contain a romance.

If you have any suggestions and recommendations please leave them in the comments. I'm hoping to compile a list that will be available for future readers as well.

See you guys next week when I get back here with a cram session of reviews and plenty of fresh enthusiasm. (And there'll be a cool giveaway going on at my other blog so be sure and check there too). -- Rhi

I have to say Rachel Morgan from the Hallows series by Kim Harrison hits this ball out of the park. It is fun, full of action, laughter, and tears and the new installment is due in January LOL squee, yes I actually had a squee moment there. Enjoy your time :)
