I saw this thread in the Classic Literature forum.  But, I couldn't come up with a theme and list 5 novels to match. 

So, I thought I would try this "books on a theme" thread in this forum.

I'll start:  Diaries...

The Diary of Anne Frank by Anne Frank

The Bondwoman's Narrative by Hannah Craft

The Mother-In-Law Diaries by Carol Dawson

The Nanny Diaries by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus

Feel free to add to this list :)
