Fiction Friday – So Lucky by Dawn O’Porter

Add a heading

Today is the first post in my new series “Fiction Friday” which will be all about the books I have read or listened to, book reviews and books I have to be read, this will appear on the blog each Friday.  To kick off the series I am going to share with you a book that I have just finished listening to.

I downloaded So Lucky by Dawn O’Porter to listen to on Audible as I had heard so many good things about the book (plus I really like Dawn O’Porter, her Instagram is lovely).  I’ve never read (or listened to) any of her other books but, since this one, I have saved her other ones to my wishlist of books to read!

The book is about 3 different women, Lauren, Beth and Ruby, whose lives on the outside appear to be perfect, however, behind closed doors things are completely different.  The book follows them in a plot that sees them all crossing paths and along the way, the not so perfect details of their lives are revealed.

This book was a really fun read and made me smile and even laugh in places, and made me feel sad in others along with cringing at certain things that happen to the characters.  It made me realise that we are all prone to judge people on the lives that they portray rather than the real lives they have, that we don’t always know, or speak about, or are even comfortable with people knowing what we deem as bad aspects but in reality, I think people are a lot more understanding than we give them credit for.  The book also made me think about friendships and how we connect with people in different ways and that most of our friends and even people we meet are much more supportive than we realise.

If you like a good story about friendship and the trials and tribulations of life then I really recommend this book to you.
