1. Ginger Foutley (As Told by Ginger)
Ginger is my favorite character on the show. She narrates by the use of her diary. She mostly wrote in her diary at home and sometimes in places like for an example: In the episode “Stealing First” Ginger wrote in her diary on the way back home from her ski trip with her class.
2. Maggie, Sunny, Dawn, Amalia, and Ducky (California Diaries)
These five characters are from the book series by Ann M. Martin. It’s a spinoff from “The Baby-Sitters Club” as Dawn moved to California. The book series has some mature themes like alcohol, eating disorders, etc. it’s in a diary format along with some illustrations. I like reading books that have diary formats.
3. Amelia (Amelia’s Notebook)
4. Rebecca (Rebecca’s Lost Journals)
This book is in a journal entry format. It’s more like “Fifty Shades of Grey”. The entries are packed with emotions and BDSM.
5. Sue Ellen Armstrong (Arthur)
What’s really amazed me about Sue Ellen was mostly her diary. She evens carried her diary everywhere. In one episode “Sue Ellen’s Lost Diary” she lost her diary at the library. In another episode “April 9”, she narrates the beginning and close to the end of that episode. The most tragic scene is when her diary was ruined by the school fire. Her classmate Muffy cheers her up with a new diary.
6. Doug Funnie (Doug)
Doug is one of my favorite male character who uses a journal. He narrates by using his journal. In one episode “Doug’s Runaway Journal” he lost his journal. He later learns that a tough guy named Roger founded his journal.
7. Elena Gilbert (The Vampire Diaries)
8. Cuckoo (Homeroom Diaries)
The book is a diary format. It comes with some illustrations. Cuckoo’s story is quite interesting.
9. Susanna Kaysen (Girl, Interrupted)
The most interesting scenes of both the book and movie are Susanna’s journal. There are scenes from the movie that shows her writing in her journal including the one is when she’s also doing art and talking to the psychiatrists. Journaling is the best coping skill ever.
10. Mia (The Princess Diaries)
11. Sophie (Letters to Juliet)
In the movie, Sophie is a writer and carries a notebook everywhere. I loved when she works with the Juliet to write letters.
