I’ve Got Your Number Book Review
I hope you’re having a great week so far. Thank you for all of your wonderful comments on my last post about letting go of healthy habits sometimes!
Before I flew home last week I decided to download a lighthearted novel on my Nook. I knew that I needed something fun to help distract myself while traveling. When I saw that Sophie Kinsella (author of the Shopaholic series and one of my favorite books “Can you Keep a Secret?”) had a new book out I instantly downloaded it :). It’s called “I’ve Got Your Number“.
Here is a synopsis from the Goodreads website:
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 realizes that she is in for the biggest surprise of her life.
I absolutely LOVED this book. Granted, I tend to adore fun and girly chick-lit type books but still, I thought the plot was very clever and the story sucked me right in. I immediately fell in love with the character Poppy and found myself really invested in what was happening with her.
While the story line isn’t entirely feasible, it’s still incredibly entertaining and funny! There were lots of times where I was giggling out loud :D. I don’t know about you but I am totally gung ho for anything that makes me laugh and feel good. I highly recommend this book for anyone that has enjoyed Sophie’s other novels and for anyone who likes books such as this!
Anyway, it felt great to workout again on Monday. I didn’t have a lot of time to spare while I was packing and getting ready to go back to Boston. I saw a circuit workout on Julie’s blog and noticed that she had linked to the original circuit she got from her friend Ben so I followed the exercises of that one.
To save some time I changed the circuit just a bit. Instead of resting for 1 minute between each move I completed all of the moves back to back, for one minute each. I went through the circuit once, rested for 2 minutes, and then did it again for a total of 22 minutes. It was awesome! I was breathing so hard and sweating a lot…and I’m actually pretty sore! I definitely recommend giving it a try.
I hope you all have a great day! I’ve got class to go to and then some hw to get done.
