So Lucky by Dawn O’Porter. (2019).
**4.5 out of 5 stars**
Is anyone’s life as perfect as it looks? Beth shows that women really can have it all; Ruby lives life by her own rules; Lauren is living the dream. But. Beth hasn’t had sex in a year. Ruby feels like she’s failing. Lauren’s happiness is really just fake news. All it takes is one shocking event to make the truth come tumbling out…
This book is seriously funny. As in, genuine laugh out loud and snorting at parts. However…if you are at all prudish, this humour is not for you. Consider yourself warned. What I also really liked about this story was that it really pushed the point that EVERY woman has her own respective struggle going on that others cannot see, and sometimes we are our own harshest critics. The narrative alternates between Ruby and Beth, with pages here and there describing Lauren’s Instagram posts and highlighting the variety of comments that followers post. Lauren does get a bigger look in the last third but through Beth/Ruby’s perspectives.
A fabulous read for me that was super easy to get through and kept me engaged the whole time – happily recommend for those who like a bit of cheeky humour along with some important themes.
