Dawn O’Porter: So Lucky

This review is written with thanks to Pigeonhole for the opportunity to read and review So Lucky.



Beth shows that women really can have it all.
Ruby lives life by her own rules.
And then there’s Lauren, living the dream.


Beth hasn’t had sex in a year.
Ruby feels like she’s failing.
Lauren’s happiness is fake news.

And it just takes one shocking event to make the truth come tumbling out…

Fearless, frank and for everyone who’s ever doubted themselves, So Lucky is the straight-talking new novel from the Sunday Times bestseller.

Actually, you’re pretty f****** lucky to be you.


When I started reading So Lucky I was a little unsure what to expect. However, after a few pages of the first stave, I found myself completely engaged in the stories of the four women at the centre of this novel. At times, they can be hilarious, outrageous and rude and their behaviour made me gasp out loud or belly laugh at various times.

But beneath the humour, each woman gives the reader a serious message. They are each battling their own issues in their relationships with their friends, families and selves and this was often incredibly poignant. In a world where self image and. social media are prominent, this novel feels incredibly relevant to modern society. I’m not afraid to admit to having something in my eye on occasion!

O’Porter’s character creation is absolutely brilliant. They are all wonderfully observed and there was something in all of them that I felt I could relate to. I enjoyed reading about them as they grew in maturity and learnt new things about themselves and each other.

So Lucky is available from Amazon.
