I'm about 40 pages into this book after a family member recommended it to me, and I LOVE IT! If you like a snarky tone you will like reading this. I won't spoil the plot but it has to do with spies. I will follow up as I continue reading!

Anyone else read this one? I think it's more popular than I first thought.

Harriet the Spy was a book/movie that was SUPER popular when my DD was young.

I can't tell you how many times we watched the's really cute! I think it came out in 1996.

No idea when the book was written.

I loved that book when I was little! I was an early and avid reader. I have my moms original copy from when SHE was young. I also was tickled to death when the movie came out and watched it all the time. Oh those were the good days.

This is my all time favorite book of my lifetime and so is the second one. I read it for the first time in the 5th/6th grade which was 36 years ago. I still will read it just for the memories. I took a class a couple months ago and was asked my favorite book/movie and let them know it was "Harriet the Spy".

I even started a spy journal (which I still have packed away) after reading the book and because of Harriet I started signing my middle initial and still do to this day. Just a few weeks ago I took my kids by the house I lived in when I was that age and showed them my "spy" area on the neighbors. My kiddos thought that was hilarious.

When the movie came out I was so excited and my children were introduced to "Harriet the Spy" and will be one of the few movies I will keep that is on VHS until I can find a DVD.

Harriet and I have alot of found memories!
