Poppy Wyatt has never felt luckier. She is about to marry her ideal man, Magnus Tavish, but in on...more
a. a nervous breakdown
b. being arrested for fraud
c. Finnish Finnish Finnish
d. all of the above
Well, Finnish Finnish Finnish because I loved I've Got Your Number and totally related to the main character, Poppy. I mean, who isn't absolutely, life-on-the-line dependent on their cell phone? Who doesn't think the Lion King was the greatest musical?! And who hasn't pretended they were an answering machine whe...more
Poppy Wyatt loses her priceless engagement ring mere weeks before her wedding, and her cell phone soon thereafter. While searching for the former, she comes across a phone thrown in the trash can. Justifying her actions through the timeless "Finders k...more
“All I can say is, she's the one I think about. All the time. She's the voice I want to hear. She's the face I hope to see. - Sam Roxton”
I loved this story of Poppy and Sam "meeting" by chance. Brought together under less than ideal circumstances, yet forging a connection through all of it.
Sophie Kinsella did a fantastic job of taking a crazy unbelievable storyline and making it totally lovable and hilarious! This story had it all:

Okay, bear with me here. I listened to I've Got Your Number on audio immediately after finishing Stephen King's On Writing. In that book, King warns against relying too much on adverbs:
"I believe the road to hell is paved with adverbs, and I will shout it from the rooftops. To put it another way, they're like dandelions. If you have one on your lawn, it looks pretty and unique. If you fail to root it out, however, you find five the next day ... fifty the day after that ...and then, my brothers a...more
I received this book from the Goodreads "First-Reads" giveaway, and this was my first giveaway won. I was so excited to see that I'd won Sophie Kinsella's new book. This book is going to be released on Valentines Day.
As soon as I started this book I couldn't put it down. I had the afternoon off so I just sat here and read it cover to cover. It was such a fun read. I feel like Sophie is amazing at writing characters that are just so darn loveable, you can't help but root for them. Poppy is a prim...more
The text messages inspired me.. so.. here I am, trying a little text faces to express how I feel. :)
When i just started reading it, I was like this ------> :-O
>> OMG!!!! She is so like me in panic mode.
I totally connect with Poppy Wyatt!!
She lost her ring!! The Ring!!!! Her boyfriend's family heirloom.
They are getting married soon and she has to meet her in laws sans the ring!!
What to do??
OMG OMG OMG!!!!!
Then as I read on.. i found myself doing this whe...more
"...as his hands gently cup my waist, I don’t make a sound. As he swivels me around to face him, I don’t make a sound. I don’t need to. We’re still talking. Every touch he makes, every imprint of his skin is like another word, another thought, a continuation of our conversation. And we’re not done yet. Not yet."
How wonderful it is when two people meet and get to know each other! The beginning, the development of a relationship, is always exciting and glamorous.
Sophie Kinsella creates very sp...more
Ok I read it and it's DARN BRILLIANT!!! Best of Sophie if you ask me. Not sure if I'm able to write a proper review now..hopefully soon:)
The book introduces Poppy Wyatt, a sweet, good hearted young woman engaged to a man she met only a short time ago. Poppy loses her engagement ring and finds a phone, both of these events lead to quite an adventure. Poppy deals...more
Just maybe not so light.
Full five stars with hearts and kisses to Sophie Kinsella for coming up with a new fantastic novel. This and Can You Keep A Secret? are probably my favorite Kinsella novels. The giddiness I feel is superific. The smile on my face is like the Cheshire cat from alice in wonderland. Just like any other novel from the author, it has a simple but hilariously realistic plot, and...more
Oh my good god.
This is a book that sent me into a crazed frenzy. I LOVED IT!
WARNING: This review is going to be a jumble of thoughts with tiny hugs and kisses scribbled all over.
I loved every single character in this lovable novel. I loved the hilarious Poppy who tries in earnest to imitate the voice mail tone. I loved the clever Sam who shamelessly helps others cheat in Scrabble. I even loved the random stumpy Japanese businessman who kindly halted in his tracks t...more
I have decided. I am going to marry a businessman with rumpled black hair who works at a consulting firm in England.
This may not seem very realistic, but it's better than when I wanted to marry a mobster. Hmm, a mobster disguised as a businessman...
Okay. Whatever. At the very least, Sam and Poppy must marry each other and pop out dark haired British babies. That is the only way it can be done.
I really enjoyed the incorporation of text and e-mail. Kinsella does it well...more
I’ve thought about it and have come to the conclusion there is just no logical reason why I love these books. The plot and the situations are often ridiculous and unbelievable, full of crazy coincidences and misunderstandings, the heroines tragically scattered and lost in every way, yet I still love them. Want to know why?
Because they’re bloody funny. I can never stop laughing while reading Sophie Kinsella books. And I’ve Got Your Number didn’t disappoint.
At the beginning of the book, ou...more
They start great with the funny conversations and all, but then all the glamour disappears at once making me want to skim through it, and eager to get quickly to the end.
Actually I was craving for some chick-lit, which made me so excited about reading this book, but I only ended up being disappointed....more
“I just need to look at this from a different angle. Like…what would Poirot do? Poirot wouldn’t flap around in panic. He’d stay calm and use his little gray cells and recall some tiny, vital detail which would be the clue to everything.
I squeeze my eyes tight. Little gray cells. Come on. Do your best.
Thing is, I’m not sure Poirot had three glasses of pink champagne and a mojito before he solved the Murder on the
I’ve been sleeping at twelve to one am for days because of this book. It was just so funny and well, the book was so sweet I was giggling myself. I also found myself crying. I’d love to re-read it all over again. Although those footnotes by Poppy Wyatt were kind of disturbing because I had...more

I had seen this book numerous times in Walgreens, CVS, Walmart, in endless places! And I thought, "Hey, this looks like a good book", and bought it.
The story starts with the main character, Poppy Wyatt (Yes, that's her name), and she l...more
Kinsella is known mostly for her "Shopaholic" series, which I read and enjoyed ages ago. Well, I read most of them anyways. They are perfect "airplane" reads. So, when I saw that she had this book out that I had never heard of, I thought "hmmmm t...more
