* William Sleator's ''OthersSeeUs'' uses two stolen diaries as the MacGuffin, with the inversion that the thief didn't steal them to read them, because [[spoiler:she's telepathic and knows the contents already]].
* In ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets'', Draco Malfoy plans to do this when he finds Tom Riddle's diary among Harry's possessions and mistakenly thinks it's Harry's diary.

* Lawrence Block's ''Literature/ArielBlock'' has a rare Secret Diary that remains safe all the way through the story:
--> I couldn't see myself buying one of those books that say things like ''My Secret Thoughts'' in gold on the fake leather cover. They have locks a baby could open with a toothpick, if a baby happened to have a toothpick, and all Roberta [her adoptive mother] has to do is find a locked book called ''My Secret Thoughts.'' It would be like writing ''Be Calm and Relaxed'' on a red flag and showing it to a bull... So instead of a diary I have this notebook, and instead of hiding it where I'd never find it but Roberta would, [[HiddenInPlainsight I'll keep it in my schoolbag with all my other notebooks]]. Yes, like ''[[Creator/EdgarAllanPoe The Purloined Letter]]''... Roberta could never resist a diary, but who on earth would want to read a kid's dumb notebook?

* Spoofed in one of the Kangaroo stories by Creator/MarcUweKling where the Kangaroo writes a diary to no other purpose then to "confess" doing something the narrator already suspects him of in order to invoke a violation of privacy when he is unavoidably found out.

* The manga ''WanderingSon'' has a shared secret diary between the eleven-year-old main characters Shuuichi and Yoshino, in which they write to another about their various {{Crossdresser}} experiences. When a boy gets ahold of the diary and passes it around, both kids in general and Shuuichi in particular are ostracized. They start a new one not too long after.

Added DiffLines:

* In the mystery novel The Short Drop, a man finds a copy of The Lord of the Rings that belonged to his close family friend, who has been missing ten years. The margins are completely full of multicolored notes. These turn out to be years' worth of coded messages to the people around her, using their favorite colors to clue them in. The main character and the missing woman's mother eventually decrypt the truth: [[spoiler: she disappeared because she was pregnant with her father's baby.]]
