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.… (més)

Dual timeline family saga set in California. As the story opens, there has been a fire in Malibu at the home of the wealthy Riva family. By flashback, we learn the family’s history and the events leading up to the fire. The present-day (1983) timeline involves four siblings – Nina, Jay, Hub, and Kit – as they prepare for their annual end of summer party. Each sibling harbors secrets, which will eventually be revealed. The historic timeline tells of their parents, how they got together, and their turbulent relationship. It is primarily a story of a dysfunctional family.

The narrative revolves around the lives of the “rich and famous.” As these types of stories tend to do, it contains lots of sexual liaisons, drugs, and alcohol. All of the family members have problems. The author’s skill lies primarily in describing the characters’ dysfunctional relationships with each other. It ventures too close to soap opera territory for my taste. I had previously read Daisy Jones & the Six, which I enjoyed very much and recommend.

Nina Riva, the oldest of her four siblings and daughter of famous musician Mick Riva, has a beautiful house on the Malibu coast. It's the morning of her now-famous annual summer party. But she's not necessarily looking forward to it, and a lot happens in the next 24 hours.

This is the third novel of TJR's that I've read, and so far I haven't been disappointed in any of them. It's hard to pick a favorite. Each one has a Hollywood vibe, but they're not superficial or silly. I love the way she writes. Her books are easy to read, but they're well written and engaging with enough serious subject matter to not be too shallow, and I race through them. This one alternates between Nina and her siblings' interaction prior to the party in the mid-80's with that of her parents' relationship in the 60's. I was engrossed the entire way through. ( )

Gave it a 5 out of pure biased love for TJR and everything she writes. This wasn't her best book, but not the worst either. Her characters are as strong as always, and there are so many lines that just tug at your heartstrings. ( )

I will start this by saying that yes, I was aware that I was already biased when I started reading Malibu Rising, as I loved the 3 books that I had already read by Taylor Jenkins Reid.

I have loved this fictional-character-in-a-real-place-and-a-real-time concept that TJR had already brought us with Daisy Jones and Evelyn Hugo and, honestly, I am a sucker for it and this book did not let me down.

Malibu Rising takes us back to the 80s (and the 60s and 70s), by following the lives of the Riva siblings and their parents. Nina, Jay, Hud, and Kit are the children of the legendary Mick Riva (previously seen at the same party as Daisy Jones and one of Evelyn Hugo's husbands) and they are throwing an also legendary party at the end of the Summer, as they have been doing every year. However, this time, it will be different - by the end of the party, their lives will be changed forever.

This book takes place in only 24 hours and you can tell. Even though it has a slow start, where we get to know the siblings and also how their lives have been - from when their parents first met each other until the present of the story, the second part of the book brought a thrill of emotions with it. A real page-turner it was!

What I loved the most about this book (besides everything) was how it explored the concept of family and the family that we choose. I loved that we got to see not only the sweet part of falling in love but also how it can turn sour in an instant, whether the characters can see it coming or not. The multiple POV, especially as the book is coming to an end, gave the party an exhilarating rhythm and proved TJR's talent to give us rich and full ambiances while describing a typical crazy party in Malibu full of famous Hollywood and common people and even Olympic athletes in the 80s.

Taylor Jenkins Reid is officially an auto-buy author for me. She could write the back of a shampoo bottle and I would probably buy it. I can hardly wait for her next book, which is about a character that we have already got familiar with in Malibu Rising! ( )
