    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.

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 hasn't pretended they were an answering machine when accidentally picking up a call? Crickets on the last one? Well, FINE. You'd be surprised how easy it is to pull off though. I've read every Kinsella book and pretty much enjoyed all of them, so I may be a bit biased. She's definitely my guilty pleasure read -- well, my innocent guilty pleasure. This was before I discovered smutty romances last year. (Hi, Victoria Dahl. Can't wait to read about the STUD FARM later this year!) I always appreciate the basic good nature of Kinsella's leads, even if they veer toward the ridiculous at times. Reading a Kinsella book is like catching up with an old girlfriend over drinks. You're not going to have deep, meaningful revelations over vodka martinis, but you will have fun. And most importantly, you will laugh your ass off. Lesson #1 of I've Got Your Number: Never put a dyslexic in charge printing up programs that include the word "hymn."** My favorite Kinsella book is hands down Can You Keep a Secret?. I've Got Your Number is now my second. Sorry, Becky Bloomwood. Shopaholic went down like your credit rating. This book is a fun, escapist read that I’ll defend like I do my second third cocktail -- I deserve it, damn it! Rating: xxxxxxxxxx, or to translate Poppy talk, 4/5 stars. --- **Lesson #2: Footnotes are awesome. This was a guest review for Clear Eyes, Full Shelves.

    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.

The narrator’s sing-song voice takes this rom-com to a whole other level.

    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.

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 neurotic zaniness who’s just a little more out there than is socially acceptable, while the male lead is so uptight you don’t even find him attractive at first. Poppy and Sam are both total caricatures, and you could never accuse the plot of being believable. Case in point -- there’s an impromptu sing-a-long involving some serious business-types (which also happened in the movie. I really think I’m on to something here). But somehow this book is still utterly addictive and sucks you in. Sophie Kinsella just kept raising the stakes. The situations would get stickier and stickier until you are just squirming for the heroine. Then, when you think it can't get any worse… it does! I’ve read this in one sitting because I just couldn't stop this confection of guilty, silly pleasure. Poppy is a fitting name for the heroine, you’re never quite sure what's going to pop out of her mouth -- and then you want to pop it back in and throw away the key for her! She and Sam grew on me. Kinsella has a flair for funny, lovable, endearing characters and these two are no exception. I liked how I got to know them more as they correspond back and forth via emails and text, which in the end leads them to finding true love. The ending is great, and the lengths a certain man would go through in the end to get the girl says it all. I’ve always loved Kinsella’s ability to paint ditzy yet spunky, and surprisingly intelligent women who have messy lives somehow charm a dream boy! There were a few holes in the plot, but I was impressed that the author eventually tied up all those loose strands that were bothering me. Overall, this is a charming story with characters you would love to root for. I have markedly dichotomous taste in books, but sometimes you just need to lighten things up with a feel good romantic comedy, and “I’ve Got Your Number” fits the bill perfectly!

    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 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 prime example. She's a real sweetheart. When we are first introduced to Poppy she is trying so hard to hunt down her engagement ring that she's lost. (It's also a family heirloom of her fiance's) She is engaged to a man named Magnus who she adores, and who adores her. His family is a bit intimidating, and they aren't thrilled about Magnus marrying Poppy. While Poppy is on her hunt for the ring she has her cellphone stolen, and just happens to find another cellphone in the garbage. This is when the story gets interesting. It shifts from being just about her finding the ring to a story that explores our obsessions with technology. She meets a businessman named Sam who gets all of his calls/texts/e-mails through this phone number, and feels like she is getting to know him through the snippets of information she reads before she forwards the messages along to him. This also leads to Poppy learning an important lesson about judging people, because she thinks she knows Sam, but realizes she only knows a small part of who he is. I really enjoyed this book. Again the best part of this book was the humor. Sophie had me laughing out loud at some parts, and I really think she is quickly becoming one of my favorite writers for chick-lit books. 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. Releases: Feb 14, 2012 4/5 Stars

    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 Okay, bear with me here.

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 and sisters, your lawn is totally, completely, and profligately covered with dandelions." Kinsella's I've Got Your Number could be used as a perfect example of this. The author uses a LOT of adverbs. There are a plethora of sentences ending in phrases like: ...he said hesitantly. ...she said feebly. ...I said cautiously. ...he commented warmly. 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 personally 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 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: a somewhat silly but well-intentioned young woman keeps goofing up, while a strong, successful man falls in love with her despite it all. The book was so predictable that I read about 85% of it, grew bored and skipped to the end. So, it is for that reason that I am giving this book just 2 stars, albeit reluctantly. :)

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 more determined and unfaltering than anyone else, - a lost-stolen-fake-found ring, - a thrown-found-kept (some say stolen) phone, - a coup d’état, - a million SMSes, MMSes and emails. Sophie Kinsella’s writing style, her ability to present emotions, her sense of humor, and some surprising turns of events make this novel incredibly entertaining. 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. But I really enjoyed the SMS-chats at the Scrabble party, in the dark park, and in the final scene. At the end, I was a little bit disappointed because I (okay… Poppy) got only one kiss, and the story was over... My favorite quotes.

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 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. I’ve never shared an in-box with anyone in my life. I didn’t expect it to feel so…intimate. It’s as if we’re suddenly sharing an underwear drawer or something. 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. (view spoiler)[The forest scene is entirely responsible for the change. It was only then that I realized how amazingly caring and sensitive Sam really is. (hide spoiler)] For a romance novel, there is a surprisingly less amount of said factor and a lot more of growing up (even if you're already an adult) and facing reality in I've Got Your Number. 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. "Lover? I don’t know. I don’t know if she loves me. I don’t know if I love her. 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." [...] He’s the one I think about. All the time. He’s the voice I want to hear. When my phone bleeps, I hope it’s him. 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!

    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 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 kept putting herself in situations where she was in over her head, but she just lied and kept on going! she is rude, she breaks the law, she is scatterbrained and unorganized, she is a bit slutty.. why would i want to real a book where women are portrayed this way? i could go on and on. Another thing that bothers me is she is getting married in a few weeks and she never really 'talks' to her fiance'. they dont text or call each other, or eat dinner together. nothing. (or at least it mentions nothing, other than how self-involved she is.) im glad i read this book so i can steer clear of chick lit forever. women are not airheads who lie and steal to get what they want. and not every woman has to have a man in her life to be happy. phew. glad thats all out.

    5 stars 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.

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. At the beginning of the book, our protagonist, Poppy finds out she has lost her ring. Now she is looking for it… ” Like … what would Poirot do? Poirot wouldn’t flap around in panic. He’d stay calm and use his little gray cells and recall some tiny, vital detail which would be the clue to everything. I squeeze my eyes tight. Little gray cells. Come on. Do your best. Thing is, I’m not sure Poirot had three glasses of pink champagne and a mojito before he solved the Murder on the Orient Express.” Not only does she not find the ring, she manages to get her phone stolen, too. So in a moment of desperation grabs a phone she finds in a bin. It’s a company phone. It belonged to Sam’s PA… “Wait!” The man’s voice follows me through the receiver. “That phone. It’s my PA’s.” “Well, she shouldn’t have thrown it away, then,” I retort, pushing the glass doors open. “Finders keepers.” I’m not sure law states that, but ok. 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. She doesn’t feel comfortable with her soon-to-be-in-laws, and her fiancée isn’t that helpful. 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. They’re both great. Sam is, in many ways opposite of her, he’s controlled, confident, not chatty and she is insecure and non-confrontational. I loved their text messages. They’re so funny and great. I was actually going to set apart more quotes, but I was so caught up in the book, I forgot to. Here’s some more… “Have u booked dentist yet? U will get manky teeth!!! A few seconds later the phone bleeps with a reply: I’ll take my chances. I search the Web for the most gross, revolting photo of decaying teeth I can find. They’re all blackened and some have fallen out. I click on send/share and text it to him. The phone almost immediately bleeps with a reply: You made me spill my drink. I giggle and text back: Be afraid!!!! --------------------------------------------- It’s a picture of Sam sitting in a dentist’s chair. He’s smiling widely and wearing a cartoon sticker on his lapel that says, I was a good dental patient!! “Lover? I don’t know. I don’t know if she loves me. I don’t know if I love her.” “All I can say is, she’s the one I think about.” Margaret pauses, and her voice softens as she reads. “All the time. She’s the voice I want to hear. She’s the face I hope to see.” Slight spoiler “If you happen to be at the wedding of Poppy Wyatt, I’d like to ask a favor. Stop it. Stop her. Hold it off. Delay it. She’s doing the wrong thing. At least get her to think about it. Let me tell you why. As a clever man once said: A treasure such as this should not be left in the hands of Philistines. And Poppy is a treasure, though she doesn’t realize it. There isn’t time to talk or discuss or be reasonable. Which is why I’m taking this extreme measure. And I hope you will too. Anything you can do. Anything you can say. The wedding is wrong. Thank you.” The only thing that kind of bugged me were the footnotes. Since I have this book in an electronic form it required constant going back and forth, so I stopped reading them altogether. All in all, an awesome book, if you’re looking for something hilarious with a side dish of romance. Bon appétit!

    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 the bin, it’s public puberty!” So Poppy take the phone out an I've lost it. :( Once upon a time, a clumsy lady Poppy Wyatt comes through the page.

And that begin her story with an elusive businessman Sam Roxton because she take his office’s phone!!! 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. xDDD Sam is a busy businessman that have no times to reply his messages on his phone. ( That’s why he has his PA to handle this ) or if he reply? It will be very freakin’ short that sound like he didn’t care at all. 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. It’s so amusing she did that under Sam’s name, I even wanna cry while laughing my ass off out loud. Lol! My favorite scenes have to be that scramble scenes! When Poppy plays scramble with her genius (really?) fiancé’s family, it’s like a nightmare when they put the oh ho so f*king difficult elegant words ( which I can’t even remember haha ) but Poppy’s word she put is “Pig” PIG! Hahahaha.. I won’t tell you much of this amazingly funny scene, but all I will tell you is that…. IT’S THE FIRST SCENE THAT MADE ME SHIP POPPY AND SAM SO HARD! Like SO, SO HARD!! They are so cute and prefect together and this book has one of the most memorable ending-climax ever. I <3 <3 <3 Sam & Poppy!! Why I'm not destined to meet a handsome, successful businessman like the way Poppy meet Sam in my real life? Alas.. Jealous Pang. Read it, man. I highly recommend. ^^ xxxxx

I’ve read every single one of Sophie Kinsella’s books and I guess what I’m saying is: I don’t read these books to be surprised. Somehow, this author can write essentially the same story, over and over again, and I never get bored of it. Even just reading the basic synopsis of this book on goodreads, I had a complete picture of what it would be about. But I still wanted to read it. I read these books to laugh. It’s been years since I picked up my first Sophie Kinsella, and I’m still laughing about some of the seemingly minor jokes that appear in that book. Something about her humor just fits right in with mine. It can be frustrating to spend so much time initially with a heroine who is so hapless and basically has her head buried in the sand, but I know that I can always trust Sophie Kinsella to give me a triumphant “wins the day” type of ending and that everything will come right for this girl. Some of the drama/tension at the end of this one feels manufactured and drawn out, but I still had no difficulty in finishing it. These books are far from realistic, but I always find myself relating to the characters anyway. Maybe that’s because I like to view my own uncomfortable and unfortunate scrapes through a lens of humor as well. And I’ve had more than a few “Sophie Kinsella”-esque moments in my life. Once my husband and I had planned to attend his cousin’s wedding out of state. We had bought plane tickets and made reservations; everything was all set to go. But then I started a brand new job – one where I wasn’t allowed to have any time off for a month. I went into my new boss’ office, to ask for an exception, and I was so nervous that I impulsively told him a white lie - that I had plans to attend my cousin’s wedding – which seemed to me at the time to be a more “valid” reason for requesting time off. Well, it turns out that it really wasn’t a big deal at all and I was given an exception. Only, about two weeks later, I carelessly mentioned in another conversation that it was my husband’s cousin. To which my then boss said, “Wait…is it your cousin, or your husband’s cousin?” And I was so flustered that I said, “O-oh…uh…it’s actually my husband’s cousin…but our families are so close!! I just call her my cousin…ha…ha…” (Such a lie – our families don’t even speak to each other!) He narrowed his eyes at me and said, “Hmmm...because I was going to say…just how related are you two?!” And I swear, to this day, he probably believes that I’m in some sort of mildly incestuous relationship. If you draw out that whole story and add in a few more uncomfortable insinuations, you’ve got the makings of a classic SK heroine scrape! Seen that way, I feel like I can stop cringing at that whole episode and just laugh at it. And I think that’s what Sophie Kinsella does for me. I had a wonderful time reading this book, and the main character gets into plenty of uncomfortable/humorous scrapes that I’m sure to be remembering for months. I highly recommend this one to current Sophie Kinsella fans – it does not disappoint.

    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. 2.5 STARS This book did not need to be longer than 200 pages.

    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 I almost feel guilty for saying this, but I loved this book!

I only wish we got more storyline with Poppy and Sam once they confessed their attractions to each other, I didn't want to say goodbye to them. Their story was so crazy it just might work. I listened to this one on audiobook, and I really enjoyed the narrator. The first few minutes I wasn't sure I was going to like her, but within no time I really thought she was the perfect voice for this type of story.

    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. The Protagonist was frustrating.

    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 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. Isn't the rule of thumb, if it's in the trash, anyone can claim it? So that's what Poppy does but businessman Sam Roxton isn't too happy she picked up the business phone his former assistant threw away. Poppy is willing to compromise and promises she will let Sam know anytime she receives any text messages or emails relating to Sam's business just as long as she can keep the phone for a few more days. And of course Poppy can't help herself by reading everything that comes in and even finds herself meddling in his business affairs which doesn't go over too well with Sam. Poppy reminded me of Becky Bloomwood, the female lead character in the author's Shopaholic series. Poppy has her finances more in order, but she does seem to share Becky's knack for meaning well but getting herself into situations that are way over her head. And like Becky, it's not hard to fall in love with her despite some of her flaws. I loved the chemistry between Sam and Poppy. The book has one of my all-time favorite romantic moments. It was simple and sweet but beautifully written. This was pretty close to being a 5 star read but in the second half of the book, I feel like the story loses a bit of steam. There was just too much of Sam's company drama and it really slowed down the pace. It's unfortunate because this had been shaping up to be an awesome read up until that point. Towards the end, everything picks up again and there are some nice moments so overall I consider this to be a good read. If you have liked other books by the author, you will probably enjoy this one.

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?!). Magnus,her fiance comes from an extremely brilliant/genius family of writers as himself.That's why when he proposed to Poppy,she could hardly believe it. One day,she went to attend a Champaigne Tea Ballroom with her friends and there,she showed her stunning emerald engagement ring to her friends that Magnus gave her.A ring that's been in Magnus' family for three generations.But Poppy lost it right there in the hotel ballroom! And as she desperately search for her precious ring,she also lost her cellphone while finding a signal outside the hotel.It was snatched from her by a hoodie guy(what a very poor girl.) Somehow,she was lucky to eye a phone that was in a bin and decided to use it because she terribly needs a phone to find her ring.And this is where the hilarious,messy,cute and romantic story begins. I did enjoy reading this novel 'cause it was surprisingly amusing! There were unexpected twist and turns of events,and I especially loved the ending..it was so swoony-worthy! And though I wasn't very happy with so many footnotes(they're a bit confusing),I still loved it! This are the kind of novels you would want to see on a big screen,'cause you just know you'll appreciate and enjoy it more! So to my ever so loyal friend who's an enthusiastic reader,thank you so much for your inspiring review that made me read this! And again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to YOU! Love you,Pang!^^

    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. This has to be my most favorite Sophie Kinsella book.

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: * an unlikely situation, * a rushed engagement, * a lost family emerald heirloom ring, * a stolen (not really since it was in a bin) cell phone, * a sexy businessman, * a song gram to the tune of Single Ladies by Beyonce, * annoying best friends, * creepy wedding planner, * genius in-laws, * and most importantly a sweet love story There were so many parts of this story that made me laugh. Sophie Kinsella has an amazing writing style that can have me laughing out loud one minute and the next getting tears of happiness in eyes. “Except...I do. Of course I do. Because as his hands gently cup my waist, I don't make a sound. As he swivels me around to face him, I don't make a sound. I don't need to. We're still talking. Every touch he makes, every imprint of his skin is like another word, another thought, a continuation of our conversation. And we're not done yet. Not yet.” I felt some story lines had way too much time dedicated to them and not enough romance but it was still an overall good story! I really really want their to be a sequel for I want to get to know Poppy and Sam better. There wasn't a lot of detail on them but what there was I really enjoyed. “But sometimes you have to be brave. Sometimes you have to show people what's important in life.” “Whoever it was, whether I knew them or not, if I could help in some way, I would. I mean, if you can help, you have to help. Don't you think? - Poppy Wyatt” ♥I would recommend this novel to others for a light beach read♥

    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.

    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.
