I’ve Got Your Number is a fun, light read that has all the hallmarks of a typical book by Sophie Kinsella. Poppy is fun, and likable. She is a character that many readers (I’m pretty sure the majority of Sophie Kinsella fans are women) will relate to. There were parts where she was a bit stupid (sending out emails on Sam’s behalf) but overall, she wasn’t that annoying. That being said, the book is predictable. Kinsella basically writes using one formula, so if her past books have held reader’s interest, this one also will. I’m not sure if there is much of a difference between Poppy Wyatt, Lara Lington (Twenties Girl), Lexi Smart (Remember Me?), or Becky Bloomwood (Shopaholic series).
This is a pretty good escapist book. My goal this year was to read more books that were thought-provoking and expanded my horizons. While I am doing that, I’ve realized every book I read cannot be heavy and intense, and this is where a light, easy read like all Sophie Kinsella books come in handy.
