Ten Breathtaking Quotes from "Malibu Rising" by Taylor Jenkins Reid

 


"Destruction. And renewal, rising from the ashes. The story of fire... Because just as it is in Malibu's nature to burn, so was it in one particular person's nature to set fire and walk away." - Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid

 
TJR does is again, book buddies! I was *so* totally sucked into this novel - the story, the characters, the settting(!!!). And now that I'm done reading, I can not wait for everyone to pick it up this summer.  "Malibu Rising" by Taylor Jenkins Reid is an unputdownable family story that yes, will be the perfect beachy read for the season. But it's also the perfect cuddled under blankets, or on the subway, or with your morning cup of coffee read. Because however you read, I definitely recommend you pick this one up.

More than any book I've read in 2021, this one had quotes that just totally knocked me off my feet. Keep reading this post to see what quotes from "Malibu Rising"by Taylor Jenkins Reid stuck with me long after I finished the last page!


 
 
 

 

"Sometimes the wrong brother meets the girl first. It doesn't have to be any more complicated than that...they were simply correcting fate" 

 

"I think I was put here on this Earth to say yes to you."

 
There are several swoon worthy love stories in "Malibu Rising", but they are also just the right amount of complicated to make the relationships between each character feel real enough to keep the pages turning. There are love triangles and so many heartbreaks, plus some pretty great twists as well!


"Kit was quiet, trying to figure out if she regretted what she'd said. After all, regret would imply she felt like she'd made a choice. And she hadn't. She felt she'd no other option but to say out loud what was hurting so much within her."

 

 "If Casey could - if the devil ever bartered - she would have sold her soul to leave this place and have her parents back."

 

"It broke them all a tiny little bit...there was no end to the ways he could disappoint."

 
Trigger warning ahead readers, because "Malibu Rising" takes a hard look at some incredibly difficult topics. Alcoholism, as well as parental loss, and also how they each effect families, but especially children. This book was heartbreaking but also felt incredibly real - the drama the characters experienced didn't feel unrealistically heightened just for the sake of the story. While "Malibu Rising"certainly isn't "gritty", the author also doesn't romanticize addiction, abandonment, or loss.

 

"There's no room for you in my life anymore. And I don't owe it to you to make any space."

 

"They had taught her that family is found, that whether it be blood or circumstance or choice, what binds us does not matter. All that matters is that we are bound."

 
I think every TJR book could become an awesome movie, but this one just felt like cinematic the whole way through. Maybe it was the plot set up of a party, which speaks to my 90's girl high school house party romantic comedy heart. And there were so many good one liners delivered that just screamed movie trailer to me!



 

"...it would not be her that bent and broke anymore."

 

"And Nina understood, maybe for the first time, that letting people love you and care for you is part of how you love and care for them."
