@Yalow,
Do you like classics?

Jane Eyre
Little Women
Gone With the Wind
The Wizard of Oz

Gadzooks there are probably millions of books with heroines of some form or another.

@Yalow,
Do you mean heroine?

In that they have to be heroic in some way.

Would you be satisfied with a main protagonist instead of a heroine?

@Yalow,
What do you do with these lists?
As asked by another poster here (and I've wondered about this question elsewhere), how do you define heroine? You're meaning something more than a female protagonist? Or someone who is actively involved in the plot and not a character who has stuff just happen to her? Do you count antiheroes?

Wrinkle in Time Series by Madeleine L'Engle

The Rook/Stiletto/Blitz by Daniel O'Malley

Divergent Series by Veronica Roth

Red Sparrow Series by Jason Matthews

Nerve by Jeanne Ryan

Darkest Minds Series by Alexandra Bracken


I'm assuming that "heroine" just means main protagonist. Although some of the main protagonists in the books that I listed may also be heroic.

If you're looking for something a bit more sedate, and you like murder mysteries, (whodunnits) try the Miss Marple books by Agatha Christie.

The character of Lyra in the His Dark Material trilogy is incredibly heroic, and arguably the main character.

A few years ago I gave my grand daughter a collection of Nancy Drew Books. She said she enjoyed them, I know they've been updated since the time I read them as a girl.
