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.

This was fucking fantastic. The tone reminded me a little of We Were Liars or Little Fires Everywhere (I think the doom of fire brings a very distinctly mysterious element to books), but it was also just fabulous on its own right. A story of family and love and what it means to be a parent, but also a story of mystery and a little intrigue. I loved it.

This was a great summer read; loved the backdrop of 80's California and a wild party. It builds out the characters over the course of a night with some well timed flashbacks to get a full understanding. The change of perspective throughout the book rounded out all the small stories and helped you relate to the characters.

I really enjoyed this book. It’s not what I expected at all when I was first introduced to it, but Taylor Jenkins Reid is probably my favourite writer at the moment and she can make anything enjoyable.
