This is the first week in a while that I feel like I’ve missed a few days of blogging…
So, what the heck have I been up to??
I spent a few days this week in Montana… and I started reading a new book. I go through phases where I read a lot, and then phases where I’m practically illiterate. I was hungry for a good read this week, so I started a new book in Missoula.
I’ve been a HUGE fan of Sophie Kinsella for some time. Ever since I read Confessions of a Shopaholic and met Becky Bloomwood, I’ve been hooked! Whenever she has a new book out, I buy it immediately (pre-order when available) and I hunker down and read it cover to cover. Sophie also writes under the name Madeline Wickham. Whether she’s Madeline or Sophie… I love all her books!
I pre-ordered I’ve Got Your Number a while back, and I can’t believe I’ve waited this long to read it! Once I started, I literally couldn’t stop. I read it on the treadmill (finally learning how to increase the font on my iPad to a reasonable size to read while walking.) I read it in bed before I fell asleep for the past few nights. I even chose the book over a airnap when I was flying home from Missoula. And, it was this very book that kept me from blogging this week… Oops!
I completely adored this book! You should read it!
The main character Poppy Wyatt is one of my new favorite characters by Sophie Kinsella, second only to Emma Corrigan in Can You Keep a Secret?. Poppy is funny, quirky, and gets herself into a world of trouble as the pages turn. For example, the story starts with Poppy having lost her engagement ring, a gorgeous family heirloom… you can only imagine the shenanigans that accompany such a loss.
The characters in the story are wonderful. They make you smile. They make you laugh. And, honestly, I had a tiny tear at the end of the story. A happy tear it was, and a tear of sadness as the story was ending.
If you enjoy light, fluffy, fun fiction from time to time, please try this one. You won’t be sorry! Next book will be a Madeline Wickham book called 40 Love. I’ll try to not get so absorbed this time, but I can’t promise anything!
