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 . . .

ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: The Washington Post, Time, Marie Claire, PopSugar, Parade, Teen Vogue, Self, She Reads • “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 Rising (Taylor Jenkins Reid) Book Reviews

Don’t waste your time……This book was horrible. I forced myself to finish it & skipped through so much of the boring dialogue. There was no depth to the story. It read like a teenage novel..Score: 1/5

Best Summer Read 2021June 1st begins my delve into summer reading and this book just set the bar VERY high! Loved it!!!.Score: 5/5

I got sucked in by the reviewsTerrible ending.. by the time I finished reading the last page I wished I had watched paint dry instead ..Score: 1/5

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

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

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

Good but a bit predictableI was looking forward to a good summer beach read. Not bad but somewhat trite and amateurish writing..Score: 3/5

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

So DisappointingI had high hopes for this book because a lot of people had been hyping this author and I’d seen people reading this book while I was on vacation. But When I finished this book I literally threw it across my room and exclaimed, “what a waste of time!” I want to love every book I read, but this had zero plot, introduced a number of unnecessary characters and had the most disappointing, anti-climactic ending I’ve ever read..Score: 1/5

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

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

5 stars!!This is a can’t put down kind of book! Definitely 5 stars!.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

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

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.
