I’ve Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella

I’ve always loved Sophie Kinsella’s books. Especially her shopoholic series, so when Smita mentioned that Kinsella’s latest was out, I had to read it. Luckily for me, it reached my hands rather quickly too!

Poppy Wyatt, engaged to the perfect man, Magnus Tavish, has everything she wants, until she goes and loses the one thing she is absolutely not supposed to lose – her engagement ring. The precious family heirloom that Magnus had given her as the engagement ring.

It doesn’t help that Magnus’ whole family is full of intellectuals who discuss Greek Philosophy at the dinner table. She already feels that she is considered inferior, not good enough to marry their intellectual son. After all she is just a physiotherapist, with not even a paper in her name. Now having lost their precious ring, she is about to confirm for them, all their worst suspicions about her.

Just when she is trying to locate her ring, she manages to get mugged and loses her phone – her precious phone with all her contacts. Can anything be worse?

Things seem quite bleak until she finds an abandoned phone in the bin. Finders keepers she deems, although the phone’s owner, Sam Roxton, doesn’t quite think so. She is days away from her wedding, juggling between her messages, Sam’s messages, and trying everything to get her ring back, often muddling up things for other people.

So does Poppy get her ring back, does Sam get his phone back? You’ll have to read it to find out, but I can guarantee that you will have a wonderful time reading it! You’ll find yourself chuckling away, laughing out loud(scaring your child, sometimes), and wishing that the book never ends! It is totally unputdownable.

A delightful, fun read, a book that does not disappoint, leaves us wanting for more!

  1. In a hurry right now but cannot stop myself from commenting. I loved the book, have already re-read few portions. I loved a little unconventional ending.
    Aren’t there some beautiful incidents like the one in the metro where they are playing with who picks the mobile 1st? Typically Kinsellaish no?
    I seriously fell in love with the book and wish there is a sequel hehehe…worth every penny this book is!

    • Yes, it is a typical Kinsella 🙂 I like it for a senseless, fun read 🙂 Just perfect when all you want is to laugh through a book 🙂

  2. I loved Sophie’s Undomestic Goddess, but didn’t like her Remember Me? too much. That said, both books were unputdownable all right! Once you start with one of Sophie’s books, you kind of get desperate to find out what happens in the end. 🙂

    This one sounds like super fun. I will check this out.

  3. Oh boy!! am scared to comment here coz I hated….like hated that first book in the shopoholic series. I think I didn’t even finish it 😳

    Let me exit from here gracefully before you and Smita decide to beat me up :mrgreen:

  4. I’ve never read the Shopaholic series at all…. never been a shopaholic myself so felt I would not identify with it. But I have read some of the others like Remember Me and The Undomestic Goddess. Loved them all 🙂 There was also where the great grandmother’s ghost follows the protagonist (forgot the title of the book)…that was hilarious!! 😀
    Should try this one out 🙂

    • Oh yes! The twenties girl, wasn’t it?
      I don’t identify with the shoppoholic either, I just find her hilarious and throughout the book, just wish I could knock some sense into her:) And I find her writing very cute:)

  5. Err…like Saks, I am not a big fan of the Shopaholic series! and I have read most of it..yaa I am sad eh..not liking and yet reading 🙂

    but this one sounds interesting…I liked the Undomestic Goddess though *Before Smitha and Smita decide to take out a supari in my name*

      • hehehe why are ppl so scared of us Smitha? Each to its own no?? 🙂
        That said, of all her books my least fav wud be Remember Me & Undomestic Goddess! 😀

So, what do you think?
