๐ŸŒŠ Vacation Review: Malibu Rising ๐ŸŒŠ

Ok, Iโ€™ll admit I got this one because I wanted to be on the bandwagon from the start. I loved Evelyn Hugo and Daisy Jones so I thought Malibu Rising would be the perfect vacation read to sink my teeth into. It was atmospheric and certainly fit with my vacation vibe but it was just a like not love for me.

The story is about a broken family, these four siblings have done alright for themselves despite their fatherโ€™s absence. They are bonded as siblings in a way that is so intense and yet there is trouble brewing as they approach the night of their epic annual party.


There is lots of drama but for me there were too many extraneous characters thrown in. I would liked a deeper dive on the four as the story progresses. I think the confrontations were too predictable and more focused on the outburst than the need for healing. Every time I liked a character they would do or say something that felt wrong for me. โญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธ๐Ÿ’ซ


Not the best outing to TJR but it kept me turning the pages by the pool. Probably the first BOTM Iโ€™ve read in a long time the month it was released. Whatโ€™s the last book you read as soon as you got it?
