meme, Throwback Thursday, To Be Read

THROWBACK THURSDAY

throwbackthursday

Throwback Thursday meme is hosted by Renee@Itโ€™s Book Talk and is a way to share some of your old favourites as well as sharing books that you want to read that were published over a year ago. You know, the ones waiting patiently on your TBR list while you continue to pile more titles on top of them ๐Ÿ™‚ These older books are usually much easier than new releases to get a hold of at libraries and elsewhere. If you have your own Throwback Thursday recommendation feel free to jump on board, youโ€™re welcome to use Reneeโ€™s pic as well. If youโ€™d just link back to her @ Itโ€™s Book Talk sheโ€™d so appreciate it.

My choice this week is: Watership Down by Richard Adams

Published 1972 by Penguin

From Goodreads:

16644104

 

Watership Down is one of the most beloved novels of our time. Sandleford Warren is in danger. Hazel’s younger brother Fiver is convinced that a great evil is about to befall the land, but no one will listen. And why would they when it is Spring and the grass is fat and succulent? So together Hazel and Fiver and a few other brave rabbits secretly leave behind the safety and strictures of the warren and hop tentatively out into a vast and strange world. Chased by their former friends, hunted by dogs and foxes, avoiding farms and other human threats, but making new friends, Hazel and his fellow rabbits dream of a new life in the emerald embrace of Watership Down…

 

I’ve been promising my teenage son for ages that I’ll read this and he still doesn’t believe me, even as I’m typing this! It’s on my #20BooksofSummer list so I’m definitely reading it soon. Have you read it or like me just seen the film?
