Still on part 1…. But what in the entire f
Fun at the begining then always the same partern and a disapointing ending for the steak of the story you holding on to.
1. Yep. Can't explain what type of titles I go for. I guess there's no general rule, the title just has to 'speak' to me.
2. Will I ever be able to shut up about this book and how much I enjoyed it? Ever? 🐰🤩🤔🐇🖤 -Bunny!💗😚 @BeeMagical Have you played?

I‘m half through this book on part two and idk I‘m having a really hard time with this book I know it‘s a lot of peoples favorite of last year but I‘m on the verge on DNF it! Did anyone else have this problem? Should I just continue and just finish it 🤷🏻♀️
First read of the year I‘ve heard nothing but great things about this book so let‘s see what the hype is all about 😊
My Book Journal entry for Mona Awad's Bunny. What a crazy, enchanting, disturbing ride🐰
Oh darling!🎀 This book is just so perfectly perfect, Bunny!!🎀 I just KNOW you are going to love it, Bunny!!🐰💗
@Yuki_Onna - Obsessed!!💗🐰🎀
Sam is outcasted in her creative writing course, alienated by the Bunnies🐰 Until this semester that is!🐇💗
Smut Salon is fun… but what happens at Bunny workshop late at night?
& Mona Awad is 🇨🇦!!🖤
“We never joke about bunnies, Bunny”🐰🐇
“Unlike my street, which smells of sad man piss, hers smells of autumn leaves”🍁
“His head exploded…literally exploded”💥
Oh Bunny… what a twisted tale you weave!!☠️
A freaking weird book & it was awesome. Dark academia plus a “what the hell?“ plot. Add in some mean girl action & a bit of fever dream. It's a little Heathers with a touch of Donnie Darko. If you like weird books, jump right in without reading the synopsis. I was in a perpetual state of “did that just happen?“ while having a huge smile plastered on my face. This was dark & creepy & I loved every second of it.
Well, that took a turn!
The problem I have with this book is that it indulges in precisely the kind of workshop-writing it purports to skewer. It's overblown. It has stereotypes in place of actual characters. The plot doesn't make sense. If this is accidental, then it's sloppy. If it's deliberate... well, I haven't the patience for that kind of empty 'cleverness'.
Did I like/enjoy it? No.
Could I put it down? No, I could not.
Elements of the supernatural combine with the liberal arts novel as the story follows Samantha, an MFA student whose nemeses are a clique of fellow MFA students dubbed the Bunnies for their childish ways.
However she can‘t say no when she gets invited to what she thinks will be a casual night of reading saucy poetry. That may sounds tame, but the novel gets weirder and more supernatural from there, and discovering that is part of the fun.
Took me a while to review this book. I rated it 3.5 stars. It left me super confused and I think others should read it so they could be as confused as I am.
Hmmm. This one is going to be on my mind for a while. I do love quirky, odd books and this one takes the cake. A mix of Mean Girls meets Heathers meets Stepford Wives, then throw in magical arts and conjuring of animals, mostly rabbits to make a very bizarre story. I have questions! Overall, I did enjoyed reading this, mostly because I wanted to see where it was going 😳
TGIF! It‘s been a long week! New county mandate means masks in county buildings regardless of vax status and not all of our patrons have been on board. Throw in temps in the triple digits, real feel was 107 yesterday, and I need a break. I‘m going to hang around the house and read this bizarre book in between our book club meeting this afternoon. Take it easy out there today and be kind to yourself!
"A song I used to hate that I loved surround-sounds my soul. It is a song about nightmares dressed as daydreams, about trading your soul for a kiss..."
Starting of #AwesomeAugust hosted by @Andrew65 by continuing to read Bunny by Mona Awad. I really hope I finish this book in the next few days before my book group's discussion. But this book is so weird! Who has read it?
It's time for a mid-week check in!
How am I doing on my goals? Let's see...
I finished listening to Sanctuary by Paola Mendoza. I am almost halfway reading Bunny by Mona Awad & I am 45% of listening to The Bromance Book Club by Lissa Kay Adams.
So not too bad especially that I am prepping for back-to-school and my mind is already thinking of IEPs and my caseload.
It's going to be a warm one today at camp Las Colimas. Good thing my camp has a/c, cold water, and plenty of shade. To keep me entertained, I've started my book club's BOTM (see tagged) and I'm already scratching my head at the weirdness of the book. Has anybody read it?
Like many others, this one left me thinking: What the hell did I just read? Feels weird to give it a pick, but it is truly original. The ideas/images in it will keep me thinking about it for some time.
Strange, dark ride that works on a few levels.
Wow! What a strange twisted ride. The first hundred pages or so were decent, loaded with enough literary references gave me hope but at that point it felt like the story could go one of two ways. Thankfully we descend into some truly bizarre madness. Awad does a great job of immersing the reader in the novel.
I couldn‘t do it.
I skimmed ahead, I‘m happy with my choice.
The concept is great. The writing is not, but I‘ve seen it argued that this is on purpose. The characters are all awful. Not as in they are bad or flawed but that they are boring and one-dimensional.
And I stand by my statement, Ava is the worst. Full of herself, self-centered, judgemental, posturing, and a toxic friend.
I don‘t think I could really explain this book if I tried but I did jot down some thoughts while I was reading and I‘m going to try to make them read cohesively. I immediately related to Samantha, not just because we share a first name but because we both grew up creating stories. I almost got my MFA instead of my MA so this was an interesting main character for me to follow.
Continued on IG and GR
Nope. This was too weird, and I felt like it was trying to much. I should have bailed, considering it took me 2,5 weekends to get through it, but something about it kept me reading.
There are 2 types of weird books: those that go completely over my head and those that are absolutely bonkers but still somehow make sense. Luckily, Bunny was one of the latter for me. It was weird and confusing at times, but it came together in the end. I enjoyed the writing and overall experience, but I understand why it doesn‘t work for everyone. Proceed with caution and watch out for bunnies🐰 4⭐️Thank you @StayCurious for sending this to me!
I just could not wrap my head around this book. Still at the end of the book I couldn't figure out of the book was all just a dream, a drug-induced psychotic story. The storyline moves quickly, but confusingly. Nothing really turned me off to the point of bailing, but I've certainly never read anything like this in my life. Wasn't for me.
A HUGE thank you to my #bookcupidswap partner @rachelm for this amazing book and large bag of dark chocolate truffles. Full disclosure, I opened the box early because I needed a new book to read while I wasn't feeling well. I finished Bunny within 24 hours. Loved it so much! And thank you to @candority for running this swap. So much fun!
Ok, this was an interesting read and definitely has 'Heathers' vibes going on. The group of young rich girls call each other 'Bunny' and Sam an outsider ends up joining the clique. Then what ensues is weird and a little on the horror side. Not what I was expecting at all! #books
Read this disorienting, snarky satire for our horror book club but it wasn‘t really horror so much as dark and weird. I will probably want to reread it because there‘s a lot going on but I loved the first time just going along for the ride. The writing is so fun & unique. The ending was a little “neat” in comparison to the nuances of the majority, but it‘s so odd a book and so delightfully written I was ready to accept pretty much anything. 🐇🪓🌷
Thank you so much @StayCurious for this wonderful #LittleChristmasSwap package! This is the book I was hoping for the most from my wish list, so I‘m super excited! 🐇 I can‘t wait to dig into it and all the treats! 🍬🍫
A big thank you to @bookish_wookish for hosting!
In an effort to pick books from my backlist, I thought of doing an alphabet challenge. I chose two books, one book the title should start with the letter and the other be the author's surname. As you can see I begun with the letter A. I already checked my books and have none for the letter Z. I already started Bunny, it reminds me of the movie Heathers #books
🎧 ugh what did I just listen to? Seriously. I don‘t remember smelling toast. I‘m not relistening. Good luck if you give it a try. Some of the descriptive language was just stupid, something about a feeling being described as her rib cage opening like French doors? 🤨 NOPE! It felt like horror & it could‘ve been great if it had only made a modicum of sense. An extra star because I can at least say it will be the weirdest book I read in 2021 ⭐️⭐️⭐️
