When in doubt, I would start by reading the full book. Then if you like it and want to be able to implement the ideas with more room to write and reflect and do the exercises and make lists and whatnot, pick up the corresponding journal.

That said, if you are price-sensitive or if you really just LOVE journaling and would rather access that tool right away rather than reading a full book first, each journal does stand alone. They basically contain the “greatest hits” of their related books, plus additional exercises, quizzes, and room to, you know, journal.
