Overidentifying with a Sophie Kinsella character is often a sign that you're on the verge of:

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?

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

Lately, only two types of books have been appealing to me: completely epic ones or completely silly ones. I've Got Your Number most definitely falls under the second category. IGYN is funny, sweet, inspirational, romantic, enjoyable, and plain fun.

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

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

I don’t even know where to begin. I did read the blurb and it sounded like a cute little chick-lit that would deem some laughs. And I’ll admit, I did chuckle at some parts. But let me tell you that I just didn’t like it at all. Don’t want to point fingers here but it’s all Poppy’s damn fault.

The female MC in this story is just fucking unbelievable. I thought that the fact that she lost her engagement ring would be a plausible story (later on you find out it is…but, still). Truth be told, Poppy w

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.

Basic elements of a Sophie Kinsella novel:

a) A daffy, non-confrontational girl who will do anything and everything (including carry out highly imaginative hare-brained schemes) to avoid her problems, and always has the best intentions at heart, even as she’s making colossal mistakes.

b) A love interest who’s a bit too structured and straight-laced, is highly placed in some sort of business setting, and who finds the main character’s hijinks to be adorable.

c) The boyfriend of the main c

“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”

This was the cute story 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:

I almost feel guilty for saying this, but I loved this book! It contained so much of what I normally don't like to read: a chick lit novel, situations that are just crazy over-the-top and farcical, and a sweetly clean romance story suitable for the most prudish reader. (Which I am not!)

Truth is I laughed through most of the story, and I found the evolving relationship and romance with Sam just endearing. It was a slow-burn, get to know you, then friends-to-lovers type story. I only wish we got

Then, as we got to know Poppy, I thought, "Oh No! Not another brainless klutz!".

Why do female authors think ditsy females are cute? They're not!

To add to the idiocy, she has no spine. *sigh*.

Sam's and Poppy's interactions:

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.

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
Sophie Kinsella’s books have always been a guilty pleasure of mine; her books are ones that I can re-read time and time again and never get tired of; they’re certainly feel good books which leave you with warm fuzzies.

However with I’ve Got Your Number I found it an extremely difficult read to get into (I’m blaming this completely on my reading funk, as lately I’ve found it hard to find a book which has really kept my attention). At first I didn’t care about the main character Poppy Wyatt, she ca
i am not normally the type to leave a review, but i must express how much i disliked this book. I was trying to give chick-lit a second chance after it left a bad taste in my mouth 6 or 7 years ago- but this book is just RIDICULOUS. as i see the other reviews i realize i stand alone in my opinion, but i stand by it nonetheless.
The main character lies, cheats, steals, and deceives throughout the entire book. There is not once 'scene' where she was an honest woman with integrity and grace. She kep
Sophie Kinsella is bloody brilliant! I'm a big fan and I've read all of her books, even those written as Madeline Wickham. She was one of my first favorite non-paranormal writers and I always have such a good time reading her books. I mean like laughing out loud, snorting, tears coming out of my eyes because it is so funny kind of good time. This book was no different. But for being so funny there is also always the right amount of emotion and conflict and a little bit of a mystery thrown in to ...more
Actual Rating: 4.5 Stars

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
This has got to be hands down my favorite Sophie Kinsella novel. I got an audiobook of it from my local library and listened to the whole thing within a week. It was a fun, chick lit read that have me laughing out loud at times. Dear Poppy, I love you.
I've Got Your Number was the third book I've read by Sophie Kinsella (aka Madeline Wickham). The last time I read one of her books was about 10 years ago!

The first half of the book was quite good but I got a bit bored with it during the second half. The book was well-written and it had a lot of extremely funny scenes in it. However, the plot was very predictable. I made a guess when I was at 5% of the way in about how this book would end and I figured it out exactly! The author is not very good

In today’s day and age, people seem to think that romance is synonymous with sex and passion, no doubt thanks to people like E.L. James. Sophie Kinsella however, reminds us all of what a true modern-day love story can be. Like every Kinsella romance, I’ve Got Your Number featured a fun and quirky protagonist, a swoon-worthy romantic interest, a plethora of misunderstandings, and a fair share of obstacles; yet, these books seem to be my guilty pleasure and I couldn’t help but fall in love with ...more

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

I won this book from Goodreads and could not wait to read it. I am a fan of Sophie Kinsella books and have enjoyed all of them. I’ve Got Your Number is definitely one of my favorites – maybe the best book of Kinsella’s yet. I am sure tons of readers will feel the same way.

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

What a delight this book was! I think it's supplanted Twenties Girl as my favorite Sophie Kinsella story. I'm not usually a big fan of books where texts/e-mails are the main form of communication between characters, but Sophie handled it so well and I loved seeing the evolution of the relationship between Poppy (phone "borrower') and Sam (uptight businessman who's too busy to look at, much less respond to, his e-mails.) As always, Kinsella did a masterful job with the comedic bits in the book. I ...more
Can't wait to read it..haven't read anything by Kinsella in months.Yay, a new book, a new book:)

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:)

I've been a fan of Sophie Kinsella's novels since I read Confessions of A Shopaholic a few years ago. But the third book in the series, as well as The Undomestic Goddess weren't nearly as good and I had sort of given up on her books. So when I started I've Got Your Number, I wasn't expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised, however - this is a hilarious, timely novel!

The first chapters give the novel a nice funny start with comedic situations, especially chapter 2 with that scene in the hotel (I'm still laughing when I imagine Poppy performing the Mr Yamasaki-song...hilarious. I don't know what Beyonce's "Single Ladies" sounds like so I imagined my own soundtrack there. I also laughed out loud when Poppy met her parents-in-law and received a "nice" present from Magnus, poor girl. Realistic, embarassing, funny situation comedy, I wish there had been more like ...more

Recommends it for: all chick-lit lovers
OMG - Sophie Kinsella has done it again! It was completely absurd, cringe-worthy funny and a pure delight! I wouldn't rate it as her best book - but as chick-lit goes it is definitely in the highest percentile.

We meet Poppy who is a loopy super sweet doormat just when she has lost her engagement ring. Her fiance's grandmother's priceless emerald ring. And someone robs her of her phone and she finds a new one in the bin. "Finders keepers" and that is the beginning of the phone-sharing arrangemen

Gah. So. Cute.

This book was hilarious, fluffy, adorable, and the best feel-good book I have read in quite a while. With all the "tortured, brooding heros" in adult fiction and post-apocalyptic YA books lately, I've been craving something light to read. This novel delivered--and then some.

I haven't laughed out loud so much while reading since... well, since the last time I read a Sophie Kinsella novel (Can You Keep a Secret). While I've Got Your Number is now my favorite chick-lit book, I think
I read this in manuscript and goodness, was it addictive. I found Kinsella's Shopaholic series to be on occasion too agonizing, with too many antics and sticky situations that made me grit my teeth. This book had far less of that, which allowed me to sit back and really enjoy its wit and page-turning plot. I don't even like chick-lit, but this reads, essentially, like your favorite romantic comedy in book form, with more warmth and longing than could ever be conveyed in a film. Poppy is an adora ...more

A total delight! I won’t say much in my review because I enjoyed going into this not really knowing much more than that our heroine finds a phone belonging to someone else and, because of this connection, an interesting and attractive man enters her life.

My sister and I love the Sophie Kinsella books and we were so eager for this one. It didn’t disappoint. As Ann said, this book kept me smiling, thinking, and guessing throughout. Poppy is such an engaging heroine, she is so fallible yet so lova
