    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 hap...

    Overidentifying with a Sophie Kinsella character is often a sign that you're on the verge of:a. a nervous breakdownb. being arrested for fraudc. Finnish Finnish Finnishd. all of the aboveWell, 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 h...

    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,...

    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,...

    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 ... f...

    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 un...

    Just what I needed as a break from my WOT Re-read.Lilyan's reactions as the book progressed:First there was a lot of: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*.But then, enter Sam:Sam's and Poppy's interactions:Finally, when Poppy starts pulling her shit together:There was a relapse towards the end ...

    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. Just...

    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.But I could not put it down.

    5 starsI’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 Nu...

    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 t...

    I've lost it. :(Once upon a time, a clumsy lady Poppy Wyatt comes through the page. She complains to herself which sound like complaining to everyone in the world that she lost her engagement ring! The ring of her fiancé’s family! And his parents are coming in the same day! Oops. and WHAT THE HECK She lost her phone, too!!! How is that possible?Stay positive!! :)Then, this poor lady Poppy Wyatt found a phone in a bin Awww… “If it’s in th...

    3 1/2 starsBasic 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...

    Welcome to chick-lit 101 with all important footnotes! Rule 1. Our leading lady with a heart of gold is invariably marrying the wrong guy (1). He doesn't truly love her, treat her right etc etc etc....Rule 2. There must be a meet-cute to set hearts all a flutter (2)Rule 3. New boy understands girl like no one else before (3)Rule 4. There is A LOT of flirtation without either party realising they're flirting. They think they're just getting to kno...

    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...

    2.5 STARS 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, the...

    3.35/5definitely a fun read! i wasn't in absolute love with the characters and there was a LOT of everything-goes-wrong (a bit too much for me--made me anxious!). it was a bit slow to start, but all was cute in the end and that's what matters! thanks to all of you who recommended it!

    What a beautiful story!!! So real and funny and super cute!!! Sophie Kinsella did it again, this story is so her. Poppy is a sweetheart, so kind, funny and brilliant. Sam is a perfect workaholic hottie. Have you ever shared your phone with someone.... ... Try it once ;)

    Ugh, this book is ADORBS! 👼🏻What if you lost your engagement ring AND your phone and you were completely desperate? What if you found an abandoned phone in a bin? Would you take it? Would you think, it's mine now, finders keepers? Would you read all the messages on it? Would you mind your own business, or would you find yourself maybe... interfering?I've Got Your Number is about a girl called Poppy, who finds a phone belonging to a total st...

    Buzzword A ThonI'll make this quick. I love Sophie Kinsella books, I know a lot of people think all her books are cheesy and predictable but that's what I enjoy about them. Poppy Wyatt is the quintessential Kinsella protagonist. She clumsy, overly bubbly and insecure. And like all Kinsella protagonist I started out hating her but slowly fell in love with her. I've Got Your Number is funny, sweet, and clever. Its a perfect summer read. Its fast an...

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 an...

    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.

    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'm in love. Literally. This book was sooooooooo good. I wasn't expecting to fall in love with it. After the ending I just can't stop smiling. It's too cute. My new favorite, definitely ;)

    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.
