Malibu Rising


Taylor Jenkins Reid

Rating: 10/10

I remember reading the summary of this book at a famous bookstore called The Last Bookstore in Los Angeles, but was very unimpressed about it. If you told me then that something as mundane and routine as a party could captivate me, I would have laughed. Good thing I checked Good Reads before buying another book though, and that’s what convinced me to give this book a chance. It was also fitting to buy a book that takes place in Malibu in, you know, California. I’m glad I did though, as this was one of the best books I’ve ever read. If you’re wondering what the summary of the book is, it’s literally about a party gone wrong. It dives deep into the backstory of a father abandoning his family, Hud dating his brother’s ex, and the overall tightness of the family. The house burns down in the end (don’t worry it’s not a spoiler), and Reid takes you on a journey on a very eventful party. Are you bored yet, because I was. But don’t worry, it’s an amazing book. I think the author needs the improve her summary writing skills though.
