Compared to both Heathers and The Craft, Bunny was a wild ride. The Heathers comparison is quite apt, only instead of making their fellow high schoolers miserable, the Bunnies are fake woke grad students who write about womanhood as if they created the concept. As for the reference to the Craft, well just read it and find out. Samantha is just trying to get through each day and overcome her debilitating writer’s block so she will actually have a reason to graduate. Even though she spends most of her time with her friend Ava, Samantha is fascinated by the Bunnies and is quickly drawn into their whirlwind life of pastels, drugs, and a dash of the occult. This book is so mind-bending that you almost have to suspend your judgment until it’s all over, otherwise nothing will make sense. And even then it still might not make sense. Bunny is perfect for anyone into dark academia and who isn’t afraid of a bit of gore. I really, really enjoyed this book, and I am looking forward to Mona Awad’s next novel coming out later in 2021. ~ Reviewed by Annabelle Mackson
