Reading Like Daria Morgendorffer

Via AV Club

So many of these titles are the same as Rory’s! Hah. Read one list, then you’ve read them all. I loved Daria when I was in high school. She was the monotone, sarcastic teen I always wished I could be. Plus…who didn’t have a crush on Trent? Between Daria and Rory…well, I think I was a lot smarter in high school than in college because of these two witty fems. This is a great list. I’ve read most, but I still have so much more to read.
