So weird. But, like, in the best way. Right, Bunny?

Frankly, I loved Bunny so much there was no way I was going to be anything but disappointed with this book. And then I wasn't at all. I was fully unprepared to love it as much as I do. I mean, the struggles with chronic illness, the feminism - even the Shakespeare - so perfectly fit the niche that is me that it felt like a birthday present. But I've also never read an unlikable, unreliable narrator that is so likable and relatable. Anyway, great book, I loved it. I continue to be a Mona Awad fan!

Thanks to Netgalley!

3.5 or 4 out of 5

why do i always feel such deep kinship with unlikable female protagonists? really makes you think (i felt READ TO FILTH!)

i. would LOVE to be in a cult. and honestly? if this book was trying to get me to go back to school for a master's in creative writing, it kind of worked

lastly, i get why people don't love the ending. it is a bit like coming down from a high. but it's still so good and thoughtful? idk. this read surprised me and i loved it

(also i know this review is mostly snarky and disjointed one liners. but they go to WARREN UNIVERSITY, get it, ha ha)… (més)

Samantha is ostracised from her writing class cohort who call themselves Bunny and are sickly sweet and oozing kindness to others and each other. Things change though when Sam is invited to one of their meetings and becomes a member. All is well until she partakes in their rituals and monstrous experiments.

This was gripping. A book I couldn't put down and was shocked at each development. The writing is crisp and seductive, pulling you into the story. I love Awad's writing and plotting. At each step, you have no idea what will happen next and I found it stunning. My favourite of the three books of hers I've read.… (més)
