Named one of the best books of 2021 by Marie Claire • Washington Post • Amazon • TIME • Teen Vogue
"Celebrity culture takes centre stage [in Malibu Rising] as four famous siblings throw an epic party that ends with the family mansion burned to the ground. Immerse yourself." —Toronto Star
"Reid's descriptions of Malibu are so evocative that readers will swear they feel the sea breeze on their faces or the grit of the sand between their toes. The Rivas have a believable sibling dynamic, and the family members are complex and delightfully flawed (especially Mick, whose bad decisions reverberate throughout the novel). . . . A compulsively readable story about the bonds between family members and the power of breaking free." —Kirkus Reviews
"Reid unfurls a fast-paced and addictive story of a group of celebrity siblings in Malibu. Reid's handling of the various arcs is impressive. . . . Page-turning indulgence hits the spot." —Publishers Weekly
"[Taylor Jenkins] Reid has once again crafted a fast-paced, engaging novel that smoothly transports readers between decades and story lines." —The Washington Post
"Heart-wrenching and utterly compelling, Malibu Rising is a story about the fierce bonds between four fascinating siblings. The novel immerses us in a glamorous, star-studded world but at its heart it's full of raw human emotion. Its characters felt completely real to me - each one is flawed and messy and impossible not to love." —Beth O'Leary, bestselling author of The Flatshare
"The term 'beach read' is sometimes looked at askance, but when applied to Taylor Jenkins Reid's new novel [Malibu Rising], it's the ultimate compliment." —Vogue
"[Malibu Rising] lives up to the expectations. . . . Full of sunshine and surfing, nostalgia and nuanced family dynamics, we're California dreaming of seeing this one adapted into a limited series ASAP." —E!Online
"Taylor Jenkins Reid is back with yet another tale of the pleasures and pitfalls of celebrity. . . . This is a turbulent but touching story of the sacrifices we make for our family—and how those sacrifices change us.” —Elle
"It's a must read." —Parade Magazine
"Propulsive." —Good Housekeeping
"Jenkins Reid understands group dynamics. . . . [Malibu Rising] concerns a family of famous siblings. On the day of Nina Riva's big annual party in 1983, they follow their usual routines; by that night, their family home will be ablaze. In between, readers absorb the Riva secrets along with the ample sun, sand and saltwater. Although all the characters are vividly defined, model Nina is the book's heart—a woman whose status never eclipses her loyalties." —The Los Angeles Times
"Simmering with sexual tension, this hugely enjoyable ensemble narrative turns on a raucous party thrown by the messed-up celebrity offspring of a philandering hit singer in Reagan-era California. . . . A glitzy tale with the moreish allure of a 1980s bonkbuster." —Daily Mail
"Malibu Rising will be the sought-after book of the summer." —Booklist (starred review)
"There's an impeccable sense of balance in Taylor Jenkins Reid's Malibu Rising, a natural order in which every action meets its equal and opposite reaction. . . . Reid's sense of pacing is sublime as she introduces and dispenses with a revolving door of characters to approximate the chaos of a rager where sloshed A-listers couple up in the closets and waiters pass trays of cocaine. . . . It's not a spoiler to say that this will all end in a blaze." —The Washington Post
"Wealth, power and dark secrets up the ante of family dysfunction in Taylor Jenkins Reid's intoxicating novel Malibu Rising. Fans of Reid's past work . . . will recognize her penchant for nostalgic glamour and history, elements that bolster this juicy tale of betrayal and intrigue set in Malibu." —TIME
"If summer could somehow fit into a book, then you'd find it in Malibu Rising." —Oprah Daily
"Another bona fide hit . . . a decadent family drama. . . . Malibu Rising is packed with plenty of scintillating scandal, but Reid cultivates real empathy for her characters, who form the tender heart that beats at the novel's core and are its greatest achievement. Malibu Rising is a juicy, irresistible book that will sweep readers away." —BookPage
"Pure exhilaration." —The Times (UK)
"Taylor Jenkins Reid delivers a multifaceted perspective on family, love, fame and what it takes to start over. . . . Malibu Rising is a fast-paced story that explores what it takes to be a parent, with all its intricacies. At its core, it is about how you can love someone with all your heart and still mess up horribly. What matters, in the end, is that you commit to loving them, you show up each time and you try to do better." —The Nerd Daily
"The novel is messy, scandalous, entertaining, and fast-paced, like a reality show on paper." —Apartment Therapy
"Jenkins Reid has lost none of her touch. . . . The titular setting is a stroke of genius, for decades of brand appropriation have conditioned even hardened cynics to associate Malibu with carefree glamour. . . . Imagine Blue Water High and Selling Sunset had a lovechild, or Jackie Collins rewrote The O.C., then combine these ingredients with warm, propulsive storytelling, and you’ll get an inkling of this family saga's escapist magic. . . . Jenkins Reid sweeps us along on a riptide of emotion and well-paced tension. Malibu Rising is both immersive and relaxing, as every great beach read should be. . . . Malibu Rising is a love song to surf culture and an evocative but not rose-tinted portrait of 1980s hedonism in a much-mythologised city. With its satisfying narrative arc, clear messages and pinup cast, it has (Witherspoon?) screen adaptation written all over it." —The Evening Standard
"Unapologetically escapist beach-read fiction." —The Sunday Times
"The perfect, literal, beach read, with the emotional depth of the ocean. I was such a fan of Daisy Jones and this certainly didn't disappoint." —Holly Bourne, author of Am I Normal Yet?
"It's a full on escapist delight." —Stylist
"Sexy, sultry and full of intrigue, it's ideal reading fodder, as long as you have an ice-cold drink by your side." —The Irish News
"Thank you Taylor Jenkins Reid for the escapism we all need—sex-on-the-beach cocktail (quite literally) of a book." —Pandora Sykes, author of How Do We Know We're Doing It Right?
"Think Selling Sunset with knobs on as Taylor Jenkins Reid again plunges us into the intoxicating, heat-heavy realm of intrigue of Malibu, this time amidst the world of the filthy rich." —BBC News
"Set in 1980s California, this hedonistic novel is about one unforgettable night for the Riva family. . . . we already know this is going to be a page-turner." —Hello!
"[A] punchy and incisive take on fame and its consequences, from the sympathetic characters to the salty surf atmosphere." —Daily Mail
