Waiting on Wednesday (78)

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme to discuss upcoming books we can't wait to get our hands on. Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week, I'm waiting on:

I've Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella
Publication date: February 14, 2012


I've lost it. The only thing in the world I wasn't supposed to lose. My engagement ring. It's been in Magnus's family for three generations. And now, the very same day his parents are coming, I've lost it. The very same day. Do not hyperventilate Poppy. Stay positive!! 

Poppy Wyatt has never felt luckier. She is about to marry the ideal man, Magnus Tavish, but in one afternoon her 'happy ever after' begins to fall apart. Not only has she lost her engagement ring but in the panic that followed, she has now lost her phone. As she paces shakily round the hotel foyer she spots an abandoned phone in a bin. Finders keepers! Now she can leave a number for the hotel to contact her when they find her ring. Perfect! 

Well, perfect except the phone's owner, businessman Sam Roxton doesn't agree. He wants his phone back and doesn't appreciate Poppy reading all his messages and wading into his personal life. 

What ensues is a hilarious and unpredictable turn of events as Poppy and Sam increasingly upend each other's lives through emails and text messages. As Poppy juggles wedding preparations, mysterious phone calls and hiding her left hand from Magnus and his parents... she soon realises that she is in for the biggest surprise of her life.

I am a big fan of Sophie Kinsella's books and while this isn't a Becky Bloomwood novel, I'm still excited about it and I'm sure it will be a fun read.


  1. Wow, love this author, no matter what name she's using! Kinsella or Wickham....either way, I'm there. The names of these characters sound familiar. Were they ever in the Becky Bloomwood books?

    Anyway, it's going on my list.

    Here's MY WOW POST and

  2. I did not know Kinsella had a new book coming-definitely excited about it as I've loved her non-Shopaholic books a lot.

  3. I keep meaning to read Sophie's books. And I'd die if I lost my engagement ring.

  4. This is the first I've heard of Kinsella's books. Maybe I should give one a try.

    Have an amazing reading week!
