    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 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...

    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 a quick read!

    Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go take a long sleep because I've been reading for five hours straight and I'm a little loopy.

    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

    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

    guilty pleasure. This was before I discovered smutty romances last year. (Hi, Victoria Dahl. Can't wait to read about the

    later this year!) I always appreciate the basic good nature of Kinsella's leads, even if they veer toward the ridiculous

    . 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

    .

    is now my second. Sorry, Becky Bloomwood.

    went down like your credit rating. This book is a fun, escapist read that I’ll defend like I do my

    third cocktail -- I deserve it, damn it!

    **Lesson #2: Footnotes are awesome.

    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.

    .

    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

    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.

    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

    . 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.

    Overall,

    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!

    I've found that books with adult characters tend to revolve around how DEPRESSING the real world is (ex: failed marriages & careers, bratty children, everyone's dying, etc). I realize that's part of reality, but I still want something... happy? An escape? So that's where Sophie Kinsella's books are perfect. They're not super deep, but they are FUN.

    (^^^ sorrynotsorry if that song's in your head now)

    Poppy loses her heirloom engagement ring and cell phone at a hotel and ends up finding a discarded phone in the trash during her search. She answers the phone and gets wrapped up in a sort of mystery/scheme at a big company, but doesn't realize what the cryptic messages are yet. 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... which only ends in a hilarious mess. They start to help each other figure out their problems aaaaaand it gets adorable.

    There's the obvious plot of Poppy realizing that her fiancé is a jerk and Sam's a better guy, but the story actually focuses just as much on the whole scandal at his company. 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.

    Okay, bear with me here. I listened to

    on audio immediately after finishing Stephen King's

    . In that book, King warns against relying too much on adverbs:

    Okay, bear with me here. I listened to

    on audio immediately after finishing Stephen King's

    . In that book, King warns against relying too much on adverbs:

    Kinsella's

    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 personal

    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

    .

    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. :)
