Books Daria Would Read Today

Daria was SUCH an important part of my adolescence, and there is NO denying that it had a huge impact on me – as well as many, many other people.

Naturally, Daria is a bookworm and is always reading, so I thought it would be fun to think about which books Daria herself would read if the show was going today/set in this decade.

I had a HUGE amount of fun with this video – even if it doesn’t sound like it, I was rocking my usual monotone which is actually quite Daria-like.

Also, I created 2 Spotify playlists to go along with this article! One is a list of 90’s tunes that Daria might listen to, and the other is Quinn’s imaginary playlist! (scroll down to see those!)

There’s a written list of books under the video if you can’t watch right now (if you subscribe you won’t miss a video either!) I hope you enjoy it!

Here’s the list from the video (but you’ll have to watch the video for the reasons why!):

My Dark Vanessa – Kate Elizabeth Russell
Parachutes – Kelly Yang
The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue – V.E. Schwab
Sadie – Courtney Summers
Horrorstor – Grady Hendrix
Clap When You Land – Elizabeth Acevedo
The Perks of Being A Wallflower – Stephen Chobsky
Dracul – Dacre Stoker and J. D. Barker
