Are you having summer holiday travel dreams? Not daydreams, actual dreams about awakening to the sound of crashing waves, the smell of the salty sea in the air, afternoon naps under the luxurious leaves of tropical palm trees, the gorse smell of coconut whisking you away to a tropical paradise where you sip on refreshing summer cocktails to stay cool, view magical sunsets (is there anything more beautiful than a sunset?!) and summer party vibes.
If so, Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid is that the perfect beachy read which will transform your South African winter staycation into an entertaining summer vacation offering just the transportive therapy needed. It will feel like you are driving with the top down in the streets of Malibu with your best friends and will add plenty of extra sunshine and a dose of much-needed escapism to your life.
This new title from Sunday Times bestselling author of Daisy Jones & The Six will put you in your summer-loving feels – it’s laid back, easy reading and encompasses a feel-good sun-soaked-vibe and with a year like we’ve experienced we all deserve a great read that feels like summer. This plot-driven novel with its multiple-storyline is filled with a cast of quirky, flawed, messy yet real and wonderful characters. Not only will they steal your heart, but Taylor Jenkins Reid will transport you along their emotional and page-turning journey in only a way she knows how.
It’s the best kind of escape and contains serious seasonal feels that make it the perfect read for anyone wanting a book that keeps you turning the pages.
