Novel Kicks Book Club: Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Penguin, April 2022.

Hello fellow book lovers.

I am very excited for this month’s book, Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid.

This is an author that has been on my TBR list for a long time (I have heard so many good things about The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo.)

I chose this one for July as the cover of this novel screams summer. I can just imagine sun, cold drink and this book.

Our book club is completely open to everyone and anyone. You can join in at any point in the month whether you’re reading along with me or have already read it.

I have posted a question below in the comments to kick off the discussion and I look forward to seeing you there and talking about this book.

 

Here’s the blurb: 

August,1983, it is the day of Nina Riva’s annual end-of-summer party, and anticipation is at a fever pitch. Everyone who is anyone wants to be around the famous Rivas: surfer and supermodel Nina, brothers Jay and Hud, and their adored baby sister Kit. Together, the siblings are a source of fascination in Malibu and the world over – especially as the children of the legendary singer Mick Riva.

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 of dawn, the alcohol will flow, the music will play, and the loves and secrets that shaped this family will all come bubbling to the surface.

I’m Laura. I started Novel Kicks in 2009. I wanted a place to post my writing as well as give other writers like me the opportunity to do the same. There is also a monthly book club, a writing room which features writing prompts, book reviews, competitions, author interviews and guest posts.

I grew up by the sea (my favourite place in the world) and I currently live in Hampshire. I am married to Chris, have a cat named Buddy and I would love to be a writer. I’m trying to write the novel I’ve talked so much about writing if only I could stop pressing delete. I’ve loved writing since creative writing classes in primary school. I have always wanted to see my teacher Miss Sayers again and thank her for the encouragement. When not trying to write the novel or writing snippets of stories on anything I can get my hands on, I love reading, dancing like a loon and singing to myself very badly. My current obsession is Once Upon a Time and I would be happy to live with magic in the enchanted forest surrounded by all those wonderful stories provided that world also included Harry Potter. I love reading chick lit. contemporary fiction and novels with mystery.
