Shoujo Everywhere... 

From a thread on AoDVD, Animerica Magazine has put one of their articles online telling of Strictly Shoujo Must-Reads.

We all know that manga is doing well in bookstores and that a large amount of the readership is female. If you're curious what titles are out there and where to start, the article gives a nice overview of 25 different manga whose original audience was female (but for a variety of ages). I think it does a good job showing the range of titles out there, and the descriptions are pretty decent.

Shoujo at iComics - I have to say that my favorite review site at this point is iComics from Greg McElhatton, not just because of his good reviews, but the amazing beadth of titles he has covered over time. Superheros, indy, manga, european, it is all there. Here is links to his reviews of titles listed in the above shoujo article:

Banana Fish one and six
Boys Over Flowers
Cardcaptor Sakura
Fushigi Yuugi three and eight
Marmalade Boy
Peach Girl
Revolutionary Girl Utena
Saint Tail

A couple other shoujo/jyosei titles:
Miracle Girls
Petshop of Horrors
Crayon Shinchan

These probably don't technically qualify, but may be of interest:
Hansel and Gretal
Club 9
