I just read this book in one sitting because Sophie Kinsella is a hilarious and engaging author! This is my favorite book by her, including the Confession of a Shopaholic books (I know, it's a high honor). I loved the ending and how it's not a typical fairytale riding-off-into-the-sunset-and-then-they-live-happily-ever-after-and-have-twenty-kids-who-grow-up-to-be-super-attractive-blah-blah-blah ending, but you can create your own idea of what happens after the last page.

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

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

There are moments in life that the white-chocolate Magnum ice cream was invented for, and this is one of them.

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 special and genuine circumstances for this romance:

- an unbelievable situation,
- a hasty engagement,
- a nosy and very vacillating fiancée,
- a very, very unstable fiancé,
- an attractive businessman who is

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’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.

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

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 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

I'll have to think about this one for a bit. Overall, I really enjoyed reading and listening to it (I probably did about 50/50 of each). The audiobook was fantastic and I really liked how it was written.

I also liked the characters, though I felt Poppy was similar to Rebecca from Sophie's Shopaholic series. I also liked the style of the book, and it felt like a 90s-00s rom com starring Sandra Bullock or Reese Witherspoon - and that element was fantastic.

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 to

I think this might just be my favourite Sophie Kinsella book. It all started with her looking for her wedding ring, and she was having a literal breakdown, and I was just like, "That's totally what I would do."And throughout the book, Sam becomes so much more than just the random guy who was the boss of the company which owned the phone that Poppy found in the dumpster. The characters were funny and three-dimentional and the writing was skilled. I loved how the Poppy insisted that the phone was ...more

This book is super cheesy(1), predictable(2), and has a ridiculous, over-the-top plot. And I was utterly charmed. I giggled and grinned while reading it(3), and even got teary-eyed at the ending(4). I suspect some readers may find Poppy annoying and toss the book aside in disgust; I enjoyed her foibles and rooted for her.

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

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 was a very entertaining audio book, which I probably would not have enjoyed as much in print form, as the narrator's voice, accent, inflections, etc. all made the book come alive. This is not my usual type of book and not aimed at someone like me at all, and that's why it is so surprising to me how much I enjoyed it. The main character, Poppy, is a young woman obsessed with her cell phone, texting, and Facebook, whereas I am no longer so young, don't do FB, and use my cell phone almost excl ...more
