Daria Book Checklist

How Many of Daria's Favorite Books Have You Read?





Some days we just want to sit in our rooms, eat pizza, complain about life with our best friend, then read alone. Daria gets that. She has the rare skill of eloquently stating what pretty much everyone is thinking, and she does it entirely unapologetically. The protagonist of the '90s MTV show is known for being sharp and well-read, among other things. Let us not forget her biting sarcasm and the hilariously critical eye she casts on everyone — herself most of all. Throughout the series, Daria read and referenced countless books that helped influence her outlook on life, and we've rounded them all up. From Shakespearian tragedies to books about existentialism, imperialism, and socialism, it's safe to say that Daria had a type when it came to topics — but she certainly covered some of our favorite classics. At the end of the day, we've probably all got a little bit of Daria in us. The question is, just how much? Find out by checking off the novels you and Daria have both read:
