Good morning and happy Monday! Who else had a fun weekend? Ours was pretty eventful! Friday and Saturday we had the parking lot redone – so Friday was chaos with tear out and leveling everything to prevent the water from going into the garage and the warehouse basement. Then Saturday was repaving everything. It looks AMAZING. Who knew I’d ever be excited about pavement? Saturday we went target shooting with my cousin and I got an ejected shell stuck between my glasses and my cheek. So I now have a little burn mark. Then yesterday we celebrated my soon-to-be cousin-in-law’s birthday!
This was one I picked up the other day at my local Barnes & Noble!
PAN’S LABYRINTH: THE LABYRINTH OF THE FAUN – Guillermo del Toro and Cornelia Funke (out now!)
I love this film. The visuals alone make it an incredible watching experience. It is a Spanish film, but I highly recommend giving this a watch. You won’t regret it!
Here’s the synopsis:
Fans of dark fairy-tales like The Hazel Wood and The Cruel Prince will relish this atmospheric and absorbing book based on Guillermo del Toro’s critically acclaimed movie.
Oscar winning writer-director Guillermo del Toro and New York Times bestselling author Cornelia Funke have come together to transform del Toro’s hit movie Pan’s Labyrinth into an epic and dark fantasy novel for readers of all ages, complete with haunting illustrations and enchanting short stories that flesh out the folklore of this fascinating world.
This spellbinding tale takes readers to a sinister, magical, and war-torn world filled with richly drawn characters like trickster fauns, murderous soldiers, child-eating monsters, courageous rebels, and a long-lost princess hoping to be reunited with her family.
A brilliant collaboration between masterful storytellers that’s not to be missed.
“Perfectly unsettling and deeply felt, this reminded me of the best kind of fairytales wherein each chapter is a jewel that, when held up to the light, reframes how we see the world around us.” —Roshani Chokshi, New York Times bestselling author of The Star-Touched Queen and Aru Shah and the End of Time
“A fearless and moving adaption of the film, and a gorgeously written, emotional, frightening parable about the courage of young women amid the brutality of war.” —Michael Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Gone
