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. SUPER cute and obviously ...more

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?

FUN-tabulous in every way!!

My first Sophie Kinsella experience and it was completely delightful. Her British humor had me laughing out loud so many times, I lost count.

You simply cannot walk away from this book and your heart not be full of adoring love for Poppy. Complication after complication follows her wherever she goes. She is like a walking, unassuming disaster, but all she is trying to do is help others.

This is a lighthearted ‘romance,’ but the crux of the storyline is all about Poppy’s

In the beginning, “I’ve Got Your Number” seems a little silly. But as I kept on reading, the more I realized what a really clever, funny, and witty book this is. The entertaining domino effect of the loss of an engagement ring makes for an enjoyable romp.

This novel reminds me of Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn’s “Bringing Up Baby”, but instead of a lost baby leopard bringing the two protagonists together, it’s a lost phone. As in the classic film, the lead female is an adorable bundle of neurot

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

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
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

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

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

This was utterly ridiculous. I'm not saying these scenarios could never happen, but I am saying that I didn't have to just suspend my disbelief - I had to launch it into outer space.

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

This book was so much fun! Highly recommend the audiobook. Sophie Kinsella's novels are so humorous, rare are the books that can make me laugh! ...more

This book did not need to be longer than 200 pages. "I've Got Your Number" has one of those plots that would be more entertaining as a movie. The first half was witty and cute & I enjoyed a great deal. It's the last 40% that bored the shit out of me. Not to mention WAY TOO MANY unnecessary secondary characters. I still might read some of Kinsella's other books.

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

The Protagonist was frustrating. So I get why so many people don't like this. But I LOVED it.

This was such a fun, packed, and adorable story and I already want to reread it. The ending was a little to cheesy for me but I rarely rate a romantic contemporary this high so this was a huge win for me! Loved this story.

If I had to name my favorite chick-lit authors, Sophie Kinsella would be at the top of the list. Even though this one got bogged down in the second half with some work drama, I still enjoyed it.

Poppy Wyatt is engaged to Magnus Tavish. He's handsome, smart, charming, basically the ideal man. Poppy is horrified when she loses her engagement ring because it's a Tavish family heirloom. In the same night her phone is stolen but the universe corrects itself when she spots a cell phone in a garbage can

This is my first novel of Sophie Kinsella,and I still don't know what to expect of this..but I was inspired by one of my closest friends here on GR who have read and loved this book so much.So I took this as an opportunity to read and dedicate this novel to her as she celebrates her birthday,to you PANG,

My Review:
This is a story of Poppy Wyatt,a Physiotherapist,young quirky woman who is engaged to her boyfriend of 2 months(yes,and they're already getting married?!
This has to be my most favorite Sophie Kinsella book. I am not going to review this because already, there are many good ones which can be referred for that but I'm just putting it out there that I loved this! Plus, I changed the edition to this one because lookatthatcover.

PS: And I'm claiming Sam, say what you might. I knew I liked him when he was enjoying her singing Beyonce rather than doing what he should've been.

The first half with the fiancé was so painfully silly to me that I almost DNFed, but the second half was terrific! The industrial spy stuff was plausible, we get to know Poppy better, and the relationship and texting was super cute.

First Kinsella, but it won't be my last.

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
