I loved "No, I don't Want to Join a Book Club" and am looking for recommendations for other books written in journal form or as letters. I've read also read "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" and "84 Charing Cross Road" and loved them too. Anyone know of books written in similar format? Thanks!
"Rosie Dunne" by Cecelia Ahern (P.S. I love you) is written totally in correspondence, i.e. letters, emails, texts etc. It's a really unique way to tell a story and you never feel like you missed out on anything important. I actually listened to it on audiobook which was awesome because the thick Irish accents were fun.
The Collector, by John Fowles, is a classic novel, written in diary format. It traces the life of a mild-mannered psychopath who kidnaps a woman and tries to make her fall in love with him. It was made into a good film too.
I'm not sure if this exactly what you're looking for but I would suggest Boy Meets Girl by Meg Cabot. I thought it was really funny and entertaining. It's written in letters, emails, texts, voice messages and IMs. There was prequel to this story, but it wasn't done as well.
There is also The Weight of the World, by Peter Handke, which is a journal that more than one reviewer has said qualifies as a novel. Also, Doris Lessing's The Golden Notebook is a novel told in the form of journals.
The Jessica Darling Series contains five books, the first being Sloppy Firsts, written by Megan McCafferty. They are all written in journal form. All five books go through high school, college, and after. Is a long sweeping romance, very fun, hip, and all around good!
