Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid Book Summary

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Read with Jenna Book Club Pick as Featured on Today • From the author of Daisy Jones & The Six and The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo . . .

“Irresistible . . . High drama at the beach, starring four sexy, surfing siblings and their deadbeat, famous-crooner dad.”—People

Four famous siblings throw an epic party to celebrate the end of the summer. But over the course of twenty-four hours, the family drama that ensues will change their lives will change forever.

Malibu: August 1983. It’s the day of Nina Riva’s annual end-of-summer party, and anticipation is at a fever pitch. Everyone wants to be around the famous Rivas: Nina, the talented surfer and supermodel; brothers Jay and Hud, one a championship surfer, the other a renowned photographer; and their adored baby sister, Kit. Together the siblings are a source of fascination in Malibu and the world over—especially as the offspring of the legendary singer Mick Riva.

The only person not looking forward to the party of the year is Nina herself, who never wanted to be the center of attention, and who has also just been very publicly abandoned by her pro tennis player husband. Oh, and maybe Hud—because it is long past time for him to confess something to the brother from whom he’s been inseparable since birth.

Jay, on the other hand, is counting the minutes until nightfall, when the girl he can’t stop thinking about promised she’ll be there.

And Kit has a couple secrets of her own—including a guest she invited without consulting anyone.

By midnight the party will be completely out of control. By morning, the Riva mansion will have gone up in flames. But before that first spark in the early hours before dawn, the alcohol will flow, the music will play, and the loves and secrets that shaped this family’s generations will all come rising to the surface.

Malibu Rising is a story about one unforgettable night in the life of a family: the night they each have to choose what they will keep from the people who made them . . . and what they will leave behind.

Malibu risingGreat family drama!.Score: 5/5

Not the worst but predictable.A quick beach type read. Not much to chew on.Score: 4/5

Great summer readSo much intrigue. The backstory is so good and I felt so connected with the four siblings. Captivating leading up to the party and so much more beyond that. Great summer read.Score: 5/5

FineIt was ok. Maybe a beach read. No depth and I could forget about it for weeks then pick it back up and feel like I hadn’t missed anything. The story was interesting and you want to find out who set fire to the house, so you get through it...eventually..Score: 3/5

FanfreakingtasticI am not big on beach reads. They are more of a filler book for me. This was not a filler book. It had true depth, fun and seemed very real. I loved every minute of it!.Score: 5/5

Very good, but ending could have been betterVery interesting. Great characters and insights. But the last eighth of it was not as good as the first seven-eighths. But we’ll worth reading..Score: 4/5

Good not GreatLike a reviewer said before, Pt 1 was great. 2… eh. Introduced way too many new characters and it just didn’t flow. She should have kept storyline central to the Riva’s..Score: 3/5

Good book about family dynamics! I didn’t want it to end!This is a good book with a great story of family and sacrifice. And what you will do and won’t do for your family. The glamorous life of fame and surfing vibe made you feel like you were in California! I didn’t want it to end!.Score: 4/5

Missing my youthWhat a fun book. Enjoyed story of this family’s beginning to start of creating their own adult lives. Reminiscent of own youth growing up in a small beach town on so cal coast. Special time💙.Score: 5/5

Awesome BookThis book is well worth the read. It is a great story about family, loss, love and sibling bonds and figuring out who you are and who you want to be…All set in picturesque scenes of Southern California in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s Hollywood and surfing culture. Everything comes together really well from the plot to the scenery the story is set in, that make this book really easy to read, modern, fresh, but still a very meaningful story and not superficial. I have loved a devoured every book that I have read so far by Taylor Jenkins Reed. I love her writing style. I’m now on to my next book by her!.Score: 5/5

Hello FrankI enjoyed this book. I like the way the author writes. It reminded me of Frank Sinatra ‘s life story. The characters were good reading though..Score: 4/5

It’s about family…..I was caught up In these four lost souls , a love story to Family, whatever form or may take, and the many ways it can lift you up..Score: 3/5

Part 1 is amazing, part 2 ... not so much.I loved part 1 of this book, Taylor Jenkins Reid captured the struggles and heartache of the main characters, in the first part! Part 2 introduced random characters and completely disconnected the story she was telling. In the end it all wraps up to give the reader a mediocre ending..Score: 3/5

Kind of boringI don’t think there’s even a plot to this.Score: 3/5

5 starsAbsolutely loved it. Scandalous, heart wrenching and full of love. I couldn’t stop reading..Score: 5/5

Perfect summer readA page turner of a family origin family set in the middle of a coming of age summer blockbuster. Read in the course of two days..Score: 5/5

Easy read but not for meI could barely wait to be finished by the time the party started (and not in a good way). I enjoyed Nina Riva’s character but the rest of the book was shallow. The characters weren’t likable and the writing lacked depth. I imagine some might enjoy this book as an easy beach read, but it’s not for me..Score: 2/5
