I am a little annoyed at her getting Beyonce's "Single Ladies" stuck in my head for hours though. She's right, it's so catchy! The only thing I didn't like about this book were the footnotes Yes, you read that right. Footnotes in a Sophie Kinsella book! Okay, so she decided to add ongoing footnotes as a gag, because all of Magnus' family members are writers and "intellectuals" so I guess she was kind of mocking footnotes. She used them just to add little notes at the bottom meant to be added humor, but they were just kind of annoying and distracting to me.
I don't know if those will be included in the e-book versions, but I hope not. Edit after release: They are included in the e-books, apparently I would recommend this book to all of Sophie's fans, because this book doesn't disappoint. I would also recommend it to people who haven't tried Sophie Kinsella's books, but would like to, because I think it truly captures what makes her a wonderful writer.
Laugh out loud humor, with a loveable main character, a little light romance with subtle messages. View all 34 comments. Okay, bear with me here. In that book, King warns against relying too much on adverbs: 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 The author uses a LOT of adverbs. There are a plethora of sentences ending in phrases like: I said cautiously.
And so on and so on. This is not something I would have ever noticed before.
While I understand King's point show, don't tell; don't be redundant, etc , I personal ly hold no aversion towards an excessive use of adverbs. But, since it was so fresh in my mind, they stood out to me to the point of distraction. You could even say they stood out glaringly. That's not why I'm giving this book 2 stars, though.
I'm not that particular.
I've Got Your Number
I realize Kinsella wasn't going for the Pulitzer. Her aim was to write a fun, light and humorous book. In that regard, she succeeded.
My problem with the book is that there is nothing new here. The protagonist Poppy is much like Kinsella's other protagonist Becky from the Shopaholic series less all the shopping. Even the main male characters in both books are almost identical -- down to both of them working at a PR firm. While I normally enjoy her books for the light and fun escape they are, I guess I've grown tired of the same old story: So, it is for that reason that I am giving this book just 2 stars, albeit reluctantly.
View all 11 comments. I realize that's part of reality, but I still want something An escape? So that's where Sophie Kinsella's books are perfect. They're not super deep, but they are FUN. The phone belonged to the PA for a businessman named Sam who agrees to let Poppy keep it for a few days because she gave the number out to everyone during her ring search. She ends up reading all of Sam's emails and trying to manage his life for him They start to help each other figure out their problems aaaaaand it gets adorable.
And all of the characters were pretty realistic! I was mostly just thrilled that the main character was likable and her problems didn't revolve around pointless lies like with Confessions of a Shopaholic. So this is one of my favorite Sophie Kinsella books now! It's just a charming, upbeat read for when you want a short story you can finish in a few hours.

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: Poppy is meddlesome, funny and smart.
Sam is loyal, devoted and gentle. And tall, dark, and handsome. And of course, he is hot I felt some situations were sticky and exaggerated. At the end, I was a little bit disappointed because I okay… Poppy got only one kiss, and the story was over Originally posted on my blog on June 20, My favorite quotes.

There was a relapse towards the end when she reverted back to being a dumb ass, but let's just ignore that!

Feb 01, Dija rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Fans of SEP, romance, and humor. Recommended to Dija by: Lately, only two types of books have been appealing to me: 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 Lately, only two types of books have been appealing to me: Justifying her actions through the timeless "Finders keepers" rule, she decides to keep it.
The phone turns out to be company property and the owner, Sam, wants it back. This results in a lot of bickering and bargaining on both parts, and they end up agreeing to "share" the phone for the time being. In spite of the fact that Poppy is a combination of everything I despise in women, I still ended up adoring her.
She makes way more mistakes than the average person and doesn't even realize the consequences, almost like a clueless teenager. She runs away from things that are right in front of her face and hates confrontations.
Despite all that, however, there's something entirely sweet and innocent about her, and no matter how hard you try holding on to the hate and annoyance, it keeps slipping because everything else aside, Poppy means well, and manages to at least be funny while messing up.
How could I possibly dislike someone who made me smile and laugh so often? Unexpectedly, Sam is the one who didn't impress me. He's this perfect, serious, rich, confident man, but none of those characteristics make him stand out against any of the other male leads. It was only during the last few chapters that I grew to love and understand him.
It was only then that I realized how amazingly caring and sensitive Sam really is. The love between Sam and Poppy develops slowly but surely since these two are completely different individuals from even more different lives. If the romance had been rushed and fast-paced, I highly doubt it would have come across as a realistic or long-term relationship.
As it happens, though, Sam and Poppy develop into a natural and forever-and-ever type couple, balancing each other out perfectly. All the time. Overall, I've Got Your Number is a delightful read, ideal for all those days you need just a little emotional boost to carry on with your normal routine.
I can't wait to read more books by Kinsella! For more reviews, visit my blog. View all 24 comments. 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! And his parents are coming in the same day! How is that possible? Stay positive!! I love, love love this, man! This book is soooooo cute that I want everyone to know it. The Story. The Characters. They made me smile like an idiot. So, when Poppy possesses this phone, she invades his personal life, too. She read all his messages Awww… and replies them instead of him with xxxx. My favorite scenes have to be that scramble scenes!
When Poppy plays scramble with her genius really? They are so cute and prefect together and this book has one of the most memorable ending-climax ever.
Why I'm not destined to meet a handsome, successful businessman like the way Poppy meet Sam in my real life? Jealous Pang. Read it, man. I highly recommend. View all 68 comments. Jan 13, Mimi Smith rated it it was amazing Shelves: 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? I can never stop laughing while reading Sophie Kinsella books. At the beginning of the book, our protagonist, Poppy finds out she has lost her ring. I squeeze my eyes tight. Little gray cells. Come on. Do your best. So in a moment of desperation grabs a phone she finds in a bin. She gives out her new number to all of her friends and pleads Sam to keep it for a while.
He agrees and they start sharing a phone. She is nosy, so she reads and responds to some of his e-mails, but just to help him. Yeah, the road to hell is paved… Anyway, we soon find out more about Poppy and her engagement. Pretty soon she and Sam are texting on a regular basis and things start happening between them, between one disaster and another.
I loved Sam and Poppy. I loved their text messages. I was actually going to set apart more quotes, but I was so caught up in the book, I forgot to. U will get manky teeth!!! A few seconds later the phone bleeps with a reply: I search the Web for the most gross, revolting photo of decaying teeth I can find.
The phone almost immediately bleeps with a reply: You made me spill my drink. I giggle and text back: Be afraid!!!! Stop it.
She tells him she has a singing telegram for them, a message from all of his fans. She asks in the phone if the man is still there and it turns out he is watching her display from the other side of the room.
He wants the phone but Poppy tells him she is going to keep it since Violet threw it away. He tells her that his parents' trip has been delayed. She is ecstatic, until Magnus tells her that his parents weren't happy to hear about their engagement.
When her new phone rings, it's Sam again. He wants the phone back but she begs him to keep it for a while longer, promising to inform him of any messages that come through for him. Poppy battles to concentrate when she meets with her wedding planner because of the lost ring and how she is meant to deal with it. She asks Magnus if she can speak with him later after work, before his parents come over.
She feels she has to tell him about the ring. The hotel informs Poppy that someone found the ring but it has gone missing again because it is not in any of their safes. She doesn't get the chance to speak to Magnus before the evening with his parents, and is jittery when she has to see them. She pretends to have suffered a burn on her hand so that they won't see her ring is missing. After an uncomfortable dinner with his parents Poppy always feels unworthy in their presence , they play a game of Scrabble.
Poppy isn't that good at the game but fortunately Sam is there to help her out via text - by secretly delivering words to her phone so that she can play better and win! Magnus informs Poppy that his mother has asked a dermatologist to look at Poppy's burnt hand just to be safe. She freaks out, confiding in Sam who suggests she get a fake ring from a connection he knows.
She worries it's brutally dishonest, but goes ahead. She meets Sam the next day at Hatton Garden. The man, named Mark, says he will create a fake ring in a few hours. While they're there, Poppy tells Sam that he needs to write e-mails that aren't so abrupt. She has been reading them on the phone and thinks he could write better. He gets upset at her criticism. She is pleased with herself when her phone receives e-mails for Sam that seem to appreciate Poppy's warmer tone that she has been using when writing on his behalf.
It seems Sam and Poppy are helping each other with their respective problems.
Poppy receives a call from an unknown number from someone. It's Scottie. This time he says that he has done what he had to do and didn't leave a trace. She makes a note of it. The fake ring looks almost as perfect as the real one, and fools Magnus, but Poppy is hopeful that it will be able to con his parents, too. They go over to the church where Poppy feels a flash of excitement that she will be married in a week.
Her future mother-in-law, Wanda, scrutinizes the ring but luckily doesn't notice it's not the genuine thing. Poppy's wedding planner arrives, with great news that she found her engagement ring on the lining of her bag. Everyone is stunned at this announcement. Humiliated and cornered, Poppy quickly lies that she had a fake ring made so that she can have two.
Later, she overhears Magnus and his parents speaking at the back of the church and hears words such as 'mistake' and 'bloody disaster' being uttered, countered by Magnus's words that they are getting married whether or not his parents approve.
She feels proud that Magnus backed her up, but still shaky that his parents don't like her. She gets a text from Sam, who says he'll be in Germany for the weekend.
She wishes she could speak to him during this difficult time. Meanwhile, she has continued sending e-mails on his behalf, taking over how he deals with colleagues. She agreed to present flowers to a colleague named Lindsay on her birthday, and then stupidly places kisses at the end of the email, instantly regretting it because it's too personal.
She ends up going to an event because Sam didn't want to go, thinking she can get away with it because Sam is in Germany, but she nearly dies of shock when she sees him there. She is placed in greater discomfort when people congratulate Sam for his wonderful e-mails - apparently he had also agreed to participate in a Fun Run and had sent an e-card of condolence for a young girl's dog that died.
Poppy has to confess to Sam that she had sent an e-mail to everyone in the company on his behalf, telling them that they should send through ideas for the company to him, to create a warmer environment.
I've Got Your Number: A Novel by Sophie Kinsella, Excerpt
He is really angry at everything she has done and tells her that she must give him his phone back the next day so that they never have to speak again. Professors Antony Tavish and Wanda Brook-Tavish are, at this precise moment, flying back from six months sabbatical in Chicago.
I can picture them now, eating honey-roast peanuts and reading academic papers on their his-n- hers Kindles. I honestly dont know which of them is more intimidating. Hes so sarcastic. No, her. With all that frizzy hair and always asking you questions about your views on feminism all the time. OK, theyre both bloody scary. And theyre landing in about an hour and of course theyll want to see the ring No.
Do not hyperventilate, Poppy. Stay positive. I just need to look at this from a different angle. Like what would Poirot do? Poirot wouldnt flap around in panic. Hed stay calm and use his little grey cells and recall some tiny, vital detail which would be the clue to everything. I squeeze my eyes tight. Little grey cells. Come on. Do your best. Thing is, Im not sure Poirot had three glasses of pink champagne and a mojito before he solved the Murder on the Orient Express.
A grey-haired cleaning lady is trying to get round me with a Hoover and I gasp in horror. Theyre Hoovering the ballroom already?
What if they suck it up? Excuse me. I grab her blue nylon shoulder. Could you just give me five more minutes to search before you start Hoovering? Still looking for your ring? She shakes her head doubtfully, then brightens.
I expect youll find it safe at home. Its probably been there all the time!
I force myself to nod politely, although I feel like screaming, Im not that stupid! On the other side of the ballroom I spot another cleaner clearing cupcake crumbs and crumpled paper napkins into a black plastic bin bag. She isnt concentrating at all. Wasnt she listening to me? Excuse me! My voice shrills out as I sprint across to her.
You are looking out for my ring, arent you? No sign of it so far, love. The woman sweeps another load of detritus off the table into the bin bag without giving it a second glance. I grab for the napkins and pull them out again, feeling each one carefully for a hard lump, not caring that Im getting buttercream icing all over my hands. Dear, Im trying to clear up. The cleaner grabs the napkins out of my hands. Look at the mess youre making!
I know, I know. Im sorry. I scrabble for the cupcake cases I dropped on the floor. But you dont understand. If I dont find this ring, Im dead. I want to grab the binbag and do a forensic check of the contents with tweezers. I want to put plastic tape round the whole room and declare it a crime scene.
It has to be here, it has to be. Unless someones still got it. Thats the only other possibility that Im clinging to.
One of my friends is still wearing it and somehow hasnt noticed. Perhaps its slipped into a handbag maybe its fallen into a pocket its stuck on the threads of a jumper the possibilities in my head are getting more and more far-fetched, but I cant give up on them. Have you tried the cloakroom? The woman tries to get past me. Of course Ive tried the cloakroom. I checked every single cubicle on my hands and knees. And then all the basins.
And then I tried to persuade the concierge to close it and have all the sink pipes investigated, but he refused. He said it would be different if I knew it had been lost there for certain, and he was sure the police would agree with him, and could I please step aside from the desk as there were people waiting? I thought theyd come roaring round in their squad cars as soon as I called, not just tell me to come down to the police station and file a report.
I dont have time to file a report! Ive got to find my ring! The droning sound of the Hoover on the other side of the room makes me jump. Stop Hoovering! I wave my arms at the cleaner, but she turns away, pretending she cant hear me.
They arent giving up, are they? Theyre going to Hoover this room whatever I say. I hurry back to the circular table we were sitting at this afternoon and sweep my hands for the zillionth time over the tablecloth. Then I crawl underneath, patting the carpet, replaying the afternoons events yet again in my mind. How could I have let this happen? How could I have been so stupid? She couldnt come to my official hen spa weekend, so this was a kind of substitute.
There were eight of us at the table, all merrily swigging champagne and stuffing down cupcakes, and it was just before the raffle started that someone said Come on, Poppy, lets have a go with your ring. I cant even remember who that was, now. Annalise, maybe? Annalise was at university with me, and now we work together at First Fit Physio, with Ruby who was also on our physio course. Ruby was at the tea too, but Im not sure she tried on the ring. Or did she? I cant believe how rubbish I am at this.
How can I do a Poirot if I cant even remember the basics? The truth is, everyone seemed to be trying on the ring: Natasha and Clare and Jane old school friends up from Taunton and Celia my wedding planner, whos kind of become a friend and her assistant Clemency , and Ruby and Annalise not just college friends and colleagues but my two best friends.

And then I swivel round and look at the ring, gleaming expensively on my nightstand, and feel another pop of disbelief. What will Magnus say? My stomach clenches and I swallow hard. Dont think about that. Come on, little grey cells.
Get with it. I remember that Clare wore the ring for a long time. She really didnt want to take it off. Then Natasha started tugging at it, saying My turn, my turn!
And I remember calling out, Careful! I mean, its not like I was irresponsible. I was carefully watching the ring as it was passed round the table. But then my attention was split, because they started calling out the raffle numbers and the prizes were fantastic.
