The Daria Diaries was a book written by Anne D. Bernstein. It was the first official Daria paperback book. It was published by MTV Books and Pocket Books in January 1998. It is currently out of print.

The book is similar in layout to the 1993 Beavis and Butt-Head book This Book Sucks, most notably in its town overviews, childhood pictures, and character introduction pages.

This book is followed by The Daria Database.


Featuring the writing and illustration that has made the animated MTV sitcom a hit, the inside story of the high-school misfit Daria Morgendorffer reveals her true opinions about her parents, sister, and companions.
