Malibu Rising surprised me. I almost didn’t read the book because on the surface it didn’t look interesting, but I’m so glad I gave the book some time. The characters are lovable and for many relatable. The ending wraps up in one big whirl, but also in such a meaningful way.

absolutely loved this book. no notes for miss TJR. the ending was just so rewarding and i’m so proud of the main cast of characters. the concept is also really cool, i thought it was a great way to tell the story of a family.

sunt efectiv incapabila sa inteleg cum scrie Taylor Jenkins Red atat de bine. literally a literary masterpiece.

cartile character driven sunt definitely preferatele mele si desi asta a avut si un plot interesting the characters were just>>>

mi a placut mai ales prima parte in care primeam si flashbackuri din vietile personajelor.

efectiv nu vreau sa zic nimic despre plot, you need to dive into this book without knowing a thing about it. tot ce pot sa zic e ca e absolut minunata, ca stilul de scriere te cucereste de la primele pagini si ca o sa ii indragiti pe toti fratii Riva.

This book shows the life of 4 kids and how they got their name. There dad was absent their entire life but in the end they talked their feelings out. This book in the end had me crying it was so good.
