Hi!!! Back with another book review! This time around the book genre is chick lit. The book I’ll be reviewing is I’ve Got Your Number by popular British author, Sophie Kinsella. It was released in April 2013. Let’s get reviewing…
“I’ve Got Your Number” by Sophie Kinsella (2011)
Genre: Contemporary, Romance, Fiction
Page Length: 433 pages (hardcover edition)
Our main protagonist is Poppy Wyatt. Her life is good and she’s about to marry a great guy, Magnus Tavish. But…shocker! She loses her engagement ring and her phone! Things become chaotic for Poppy as she struggles to find her missing ring. While looking around in a lobby she finds a nice phone that has thrown away and decides to use it temporarily until she can get a new one. Her “new phone”, however, belongs to Sax Roxton. When he finds out she has the phone he demands to have it back seeing it is a company phone with a lot of important information on it. Poppy begs to keep the phone temporarily until she can get and new one and find the ring and Sam reluctantly agrees. Poppy’s curiosity gets the better of her and she goes through the phone reading its messages and there the story begins….
This is another cute, fun read from Kinsella. It’s definitely a quick read, and it’s a well written romantic comedy. The characters are great! Poppy is a sweet woman. She’s very caring and kind. I love her little footnotes at the bottom of pages (You’ll understand when you read the book). Sam is a little more uptight, and more business like/less laid back than Poppy. But it’s both of their faults that make these characters so likeable and good math for each other.
The writing is quirky, and funny. I found myself at many points of the novel chuckling/laughing out loud. I also think that the storyline is different and unique. A rom-com developed through texting, e-mails, etc. I haven’t read a book like that since I was in middle school. I think it was that TTYL series by Lauren Myracle. And that was told through text speak. Anyways, the point being it stood out form the most recent romantic comedy books I’ve been reading lately. I highly recommend this book if you are a fan of Sophie Kinsella’s other novels or just like cute and funny love stories.
Final Verdict: 4 out of 5 stars! 🙂
