    This book is bananas. B-A-N-A-N-A-S What are the limits of creativity and friendship? In the world of this novel, the answer to that might contain more blood and guts than your average MFA program (but really, what do I know?) I liked Awad's previous novel, and this one is a bit m...

    Loved the snarky sentences for awhile, but riding the rollercoaster of caustic commentary has only so much charm - eventually this book starts to feel as mean-spirited and vacuous as the rest of our modern discourse. The ubiquitousness of this way of telling stories makes me feel like ...

    Samantha is a graduate student with writer's block. She's from a poor background and doesn't really fit in at moneyed Warren University, where her four workshop partners have formed an insular clique. They call themselves the Bunnies ? they literally all call each other 'Bunny' ? a...

    What did I just read?! Okay. Imagine the dark humor of Heathers, the body horror of David Cronenberg and the dystopian speculative fiction of Black Mirror all coming together in a bizarre fever dream that?s sort of a satire of the creative process and MFA programs. Because that?...

    Okay so I have no idea what the heck happened in this book. I got the basic premise: we follow Samantha Mackey, an MFA student at Warren University, an elite college school in New England. Samantha hates the Bunnies, a clique of four rich, popular female students who hug each other a l...

    This book is pure demented madness. I loved it. I loved all of it and I think all of you weirdos should read it because you might just love it too. Just don?t ask me what it was about because I have no idea what the heck I just read and I am perfectly fine with that, haha! I wa...

    Believe what everyone's saying about Bunny - Mona Awad's latest novel based on her experiences studying for an MFA is totally bonkers. Imagine if Ottessa Moshfegh had written Mean Girls and then chucked in some witchcraft and a bit of the plot of the movie Heathers and you'd be on your...

    We call them Bunnies because that's what they call each other. Seriously. Bunny. Example: Hi, Bunny! Hi, Bunny! What did you do last night, Bunny? I hung out with you, Bunny. Remember, Bunny? That's right, Bunny, you hung out with me and it was the best time I ever ha...

    A horror novel set in a prestigious MFA program with a distinct Heathers vibe is one hell of a hand sell. But I just can't resolve that this bunny coven is comprised of grad students. These squealing mean girls with their ski jump noses and peach fuzz cheeks endlessly hugging and fille...

    From upstairs, I hear more screams. "Don't you guys hear that?" They look at one another. Genuine confusion troubles their brows. "Hear?" "That screaming?!" "Your beauty is like screaming, Samantha," says Beowulf, touching my face. He strokes it with his gloved hand, li...

    Where to even begin with this book? I want to say everything and absolutely nothing, because I adored it, but I also want the reader to have an unspoiled experience. Especially because you will read this one and simultaneously shake with laughter while whispering "what the actual f*ck"...

    Topping off my trio of weird reads this weekend is BUNNY. I'm not even sure that I understood everything that occurred in this book. In that regard, it was like a train wreck. The characters were so awesomely terrible, I couldn't look away! (Or is that HEAR away? Whatever.) This was...

    Okay, what just happened here? I'll quote one of the characters to explain my feelings about Bunny--"And then I feel like screaming JUST SAY IT. TELL ME WHAT HAPPENED. TELL ME WHAT THE FUCK THIS MEANS." The publisher's blurb doesn't even begin to capture what happens in Bunny. At...

    2 stars There are those bizarre and experimental books that manage to be entertaining, transgressive, and on occasion even thought-provoking. And then, there are books like Bunny whose weirdness largely rests on overusing the word bunny (which appears approximately 350 times, one t...

    Bunny, often compared in literary advertisements to Heathers, The Neon Demon and Valley of the Dolls, presents an interesting premise that blows the top off of the horror underlying a preppy New England fine arts school. There were a few things that I definitely liked about this book; ...

    /5 This was interesting, but not captivating enough to hold my attention. I liked how the author wasn?t afraid of taking risks. I found the characters interesting, but after a while, they blend into one another. The plot itself was fine, I particularly enjoyed the first part, ...

    God this was truly awful. You know when you get a feel for a book and the feel is, ?I don?t like this but I?m going to give it a chance?? But then you give it a chance and it doesn?t improve? So that happened. As I read I thought this author must be very young and will be em...

    I have, like, no clue what I just read. A post-feminist Fight Club? A sort-of inverted Traumnovelle / Eyes Wide Shut? An appeal for Bunnies or an ode to wolves? The writing was interesting-very uber-millennial complete with emojis, selfies, self-indulgent musing, semi-pretentious name-...

    A decidedly trippy and twisted read, Bunny is a book you?ll finish likely unsure of what, exactly, you just experienced. What began as a cynical and razor-sharp send-up of Mean Girls evolved into a brilliant trip into the horrific and uncanny. I?m not sure what I liked more: the...

    Wow??!! This book was so incredibly strange and unique! I didn't really understand what was going on for the most part of it, which seems to be the consensus amongst most readers. Despite the constant state of confusion, something kept me intrigued enough to continue reading. Not sure ...

    And the most original novel of 2019 award goes to... Mona Awad's Bunny ! This book is seriously a concoction of oddball camp meets horror. Try following along with Awad's quirky new release without saying "WTF?!", I dare you. Bunny takes place at Warren University, located in New...
