We LOVE this list from Aerogramme Studio of all 57 sick, sad books mentioned on Daria! Are we children of the 90s? Yeah, just a little …
While Daria’s favourite TV show, Sick Sad World, featured heavily throughout the series, the show was also filled with literary references. Here are 57 books that Daria read or that were mentioned during the episodes, with links to free eBook editions where available in parentheses. As DariaWiki puts it, “If it’s old, morbid, or esoteric, Daria will read the hell out of it.”
So if you’re looking for a new canon, we highly recommend this list (and we’ve already got a jump on it with our Grapes of Wrath book club — Grapes comes in at #45). H/T to our buddies at the AV Club for the link!
(Team Member Nicole is thinking of being Daria for Halloween. I promise there will be pictures if she does.)
