🌊Malibu Rising is a guide that we couldn’t agree on! 🙈😱
After we completed the guide, we had very blended opinions. Whereas we each accepted that the execution, writing type and tempo is incredible, we couldn’t click on on the rest! We now have learn Seven Husbands of Evely Hugo, and each cherished it, so it was a bit baffling and humorous to speak about it!
Nerijus had lots of bother studying about all of the movie star drama on this guide. After falling in love with the sturdy character of Evelyn Hugo, this one felt rather a lot like a Hollywood melodrama he would reasonably keep away from. That is most likely why it took fairly a protracted to complete, and it felt like a narrative didn’t progress very a lot. Characters felt fairly distant to him, however however, it was very fulfilling to untangle easter eggs and relationships that carried over from Evely Hugo because the guide is ready in the identical universe.
Ingrid has completely adored it. She completed the guide in an nearly single sitting and fell in love with everybody in it. She loved the depth of characters, their motivations and selections they’ve made by the story. Additionally, vivid and vibrant malibu scenes within the ’80s have been to die for. Similar as Nerijus, it was fascinating to select up items the place the guide joins the story with Evelyn Hugo’s.
Which aspect are you on? Have you ever learn it? It doesn’t matter what, it’s a nice guide, and when you have loved different Taylor Jenkins Reid novels, you’ll most likely discover one thing that you just like in right here as nicely!
