My rating: 4 of 5 stars (3.5 stars rounded up to a 4)

Bunny by Mona Awad is probably the most bonkers (and meta) horror novel I’ve read in years. The hardcover version is 307 pages.

Samantha Mackey is in a loaner attending an elite MFA program at a prestigious New England University. The rest of the people in her small group are several vapid rich girls who call each other “Bunny.” Sam gets roped into attending a salon put on by the Bunnies, and strains her connection with her only friend Ava along the way.

The Bunnies are definitely into weird cult stuff. Think Frankenstein meets Mean Girls. But it’s also a super meta take on “killing your darlings” and “putting in the work.”

CW: animal death, gore, exploration of mental illness
