Bunny

Samantha Heather Mackey couldn't be more of an outsider in her small, highly selective MFA program at New England's Warren University.

    NOW AVAILABLE!! this book is straight-up bonkers. seeing this was set ?at an elite new england university? with an exclusive clique at its center and seeing it compared to Heathers, i went into it expecting a Megan Abbott-y/The Secret History-y type of deal; full of those dark a...

    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 ...

    So, I read something that called this a combination of Heathers and The Craft. It is. It really is. It's also weird. This is, quite honestly, one of the strangest books I've ever read. I don't do drugs, but I imagine if I ever took some bad LSD, while watching Alice in Wonderlan...

    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?...

    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...

    third wave feminist art as blood magic? i've never been more in. conventionally attractive clique of wealthy girls are the complex villains? so so good. scathing , hilarious, and also somehow very accurate but mystical take on academia? chef's kiss. stunning & supportive relationsh...

    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...

    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"...

    H- hey... uh... MFA students? Are you OK? (4 stars--I really liked it. This book defies expectations and a review. It's totally off-the-wall bonkers. Part literary fiction, part horror, part weird fiction--be warned if you're squeamish.) ...

    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 3...

    Let me tell you about this book. About this weird f*cking book. This book is the kind of book I would have never picked up if I knew what it actually was about, but because I went in mostly blind, I read it, and I somehow got pulled into the story. I think that might be the only reaso...

    "We're not bored in the slightest, ever, ever." I loved Bunny SO MUCH. I had no idea what to expect with this book, and it was amazing. I don't want to say very much about it because you deserve to experience this insanity on its own. Bunny is one of my favorite books I've read this...

    Brilliant story in so many ways!!! Awad pushes the boundaries with this one to deliver a story that's wickedly sarcastic and wonderfully weird. This won't appeal to everyone (hence the polarizing reviews) but for anyone open to something very different, this is a wild ride. It's a stor...

    If there is one thing this book did right it is make an impact! I'm still slightly reeling. I have listened to this entire audio in one day and feel like reality is but an abstract painting now, so truly has this warped my mind. Delivered here is a story in which I thought I knew ex...

    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...

    Thank you @headofzeus for gifting me a copy of this wild ride of a book! I think this book is one of those where you have to just get on board with the weirdness otherwise you?re just going to be like wtf and probably not enjoy it. I thought it was so FUN and I devoured it in 24 hour...

    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...

    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...
