Strong Female Protagonists? Where?! (With Synopsis & Rating)

Strong Female Protagonists? Where?! (With Synopsis & Rating)
NOT RANKED BY NUMBER. Lots of diversity in the novels. Different kinds like zombie apocalypse, horror, or light-hearted reads like comedy and romance. They all have their own quirks and differences, but one thing that they all have in common is that they are strong in their own way, and they are all female leads. Mentally, physically, talent-wise, etcetera. Some have romance and some don't.  If that's your cup of tea, go right ahead! I don't put bad novels on this list. So read them all. 3/5+ stars only!

Gut-wrenching. It's more like an actual short story rather than a novel. I cried through the ending of this book. The protagonist learns and grows. Unlike most of the novels on here, it is more of a film queen novel. Don't be fooled. It's nothing like your typical film queen novel and has ghostly horror elements with different movies.  6/5... more>>

 The protagonist is resourceful, hoarding, and surprisingly lax in such a high-stakes game. It's a good read. Little to no romance with an open-to-interpretation ending. 5/5... more>>

The protagonist is shameless, studious and a multiple-talent. You'll have fun reading how everybody discovers how utterly powerful she is. Even if she is a girl she has a lot of brothership friends.  5/5... more>>

This is one of my favorite developments and protagonists ever. No romance.  You watch as the protagonist grows and learns and becomes more powerful. If you like action manhwa, this is your pick. 5/5... more>>

Typically strong protagonist. You get to see development here too. I recommend to MTL the entire thing. Some of it is unintelligible but you see how Ning Shu grows impossibly powerful. Barely any romance. She is ruthless, sometimes cruel, but she is powerful. 4/5. ... more>>

I MTL'd the entire thing. She's powerful and face-slapping. I really liked all the arcs despite all of them being really different. There's romance (?) but it really all describes as her often marrying for convenience. The only romance is focused on the ML's side. Romance becomes more focused as you read. Open ending. 4.5/5... more>>

I MTL'd this novel. The premise is good and funny, the arcs are very well done, and she is very powerful. Her development is the best and you get to see her take down an evil organization in the zombie apocalypse. Limited romance. 4/5... more>>

A good zombie apocalypse novel. It's a good read with an interesting premise. You get emotional sometimes because she has a door to the regular world and a door to the zombie apocalypse. She was reborn and saves her family from heart-ache. The upstanding girl that inspires. 4/5... more>>

This is like Apocalypse Lord with a horror game element. It's good and relaxing. The protagonist is cool-headed through everything. Do not be fooled by the little amount of chapters. There's actually like a hundred but no updates to the novelupdates page.  Has romance. 3/5... more>>

Another light-hearted novel. It's comedy and made me laugh a lot. The protagonist is very OP, and the reactions to her powerfulness are funny. Martial arts are done well in this novel. Laughter is also a talent. 3/5... more>>

A light-hearted cooking novel. It doesn't really match the other novels on here but I really liked it. OP protagonist from the start. The ML is meh to me, but I read it more for the enjoyment factor. I liked how powerful she got. 3/5 but I enjoyed it very much.... more>>

Not strong in the traditional sense. If you feel like a fat lazy sack of sh*t lying on your couch and reading novels, read this. A very light-hearted and relaxed read that can span the week. Boring but a good kind of boring. Interesting premise with a hardworking, studious female lead that inspires you to stop spending all your time online. 3/5... more>>

Another apocalypse novel. It's good and very interesting. The romance is palatable and the protagonist is strong-willed and smart. I honestly prefer this novel to its predecessor - but both of them are very good novels. ML is cute and protective. 4/5 ... more>>

Short, good read. Characters are fleshed out, easy to sympathize with and smart. The storyline is interesting and the protagonist is very cool. Horror, game elements and suspense all in one. No couples and no ML. 3.5/5... more>>

The ML and FL are so funny. Lots of CP action. FL is physically strong, good-willed, and smart. She's also very shameless and contrasts the ML well. Push through the first 20 chapters of ML being a d*ck and her in an unfavorable company it gets so much better later.  Enemies to lovers. 4.5/5. Only because the first twenty chapters made me want to rip my face off from injustice. But the rest is really too good.... more>>

FL is great. She's scheming but straightforward all at once. She uses her wits and everybody around her is impressed with her. Not a lot of CP from what I've read so far but it's very good. It's interesting to watch the downfall of others. You think she's gonna be a salted fish but she's actually very capable and takes all the matters into her own hands. Independent mom. 3.5/5... more>>

An easy read. OP FMC, pig-headed cannon fodders, short chapters. Nothing really notable about this specific novel in general but it's good at face-slapping and has a strong main character. Lots of annoying characters and fully MTL'd. It's a fun read when you have no other novels. Very surface level, but good to relax. 3/5... more>>

A heavy read with lots of themes of triggering topics. The FL on her own is extremely resourceful, is willing to do anything for her goals, and decisive. It's a psychological and sci-fi filled story with complicated arcs. It is not a light-hearted read, no romance but the MLs in this novel are wonderful. Open ending. 4/5... more>>

A satisfying read. All tr*shy MLs get their ass handed to them by FMC. The FMC is smart, ambitious and cunning. I enjoyed watching her return whatever revenge they had against her five-fold. This is a 'face-slapping' novel but it doesn't feel that way. The concept is fresh and new. The romance is, meh, at best but the ML isn't bad. The romance in the story is also very little. 4.5/5... more>>
