Are there any Virginia Woolf lovers preferring her diaries to her fiction?

Although her diaries are lots of fun, I'm afraid I prefer To the Lighthouse and Mrs. Dalloway. I do like the diaries better than Orlando, though.
Have you tried Three Guineas or A Room of One's Own? You may find you have new favorite Woolf.

Orlando made my head hurt.... But definitely Fiction over Diaries.

I think her diaries most comforting. I am always astonished about her openness in regard to herself - and I like her acid-tongued humour. Yes, I read all of her fiction and of course Three Guineas and A Room of One's Own - and enjoyed both very much. Mrs Dalloway is one of my favourite novels.
Have you tried her letters? They are great!

Have you ever tried the diaries? You should! They are very amusing.

I used to read her books as a teenager...god I sound old! I used to love them but it has been years now..I should read her diaries as you all seem to agree they are worth it. I loved Mrs Dalloway of course, and To The Lighthouse felt like a painting.
