Can't-Wait Wednesday: Pan's Labyrinth: The Labyrinth of the Faun & Wilder Girls

Can't-Wait is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings that spotlights exciting upcoming releases that we can't wait to be released! This meme is based off of Jill @ Breaking the Spine's Waiting on Wednesday meme.

This week's upcoming book spotlight is: 

Pan's Labyrinth: The Labyrinth of the Faun
Pan's Labyrinth: The Labyrinth of the Faun by Guillermo del Toro & Cornelia Funke
Publication: July 2nd, 2019
Katherine Tegen Books
Hardcover. 272 pages.

"Oscar winning writer-director Guillermo del Toro and New York Times bestselling author Cornelia Funke 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 gorgeous and haunting illustrations. 

This book is not for the faint of heart or weak in spirit. It’s not for skeptics who don’t believe in fairy tales and the powerful forces of good. It’s only for brave and intrepid souls like you, who will stare down evil in all its forms. 

Inspired by the critically acclaimed film written and directed by Oscar winner Guillermo del Toro and reimagined by New York Times bestselling author Cornelia Funke, this haunting tale takes readers to a darkly magical and war-torn world filled with richly drawn characters like trickster fauns, murderous men, child-eating monsters, courageous rebels, and a long-lost princess hoping to be reunited with her family. 

Perfect for fans of the movie and readers who are new to del Toro’s visionary work, this atmospheric and absorbing novel is a portal to another universe where there is no wall between the real and the imagined. A daring, unforgettable collaboration between two brilliant storytellers."
I am beyond excited for this book adaptation of Pan's Labyrinth! I am especially excited because of the fact that the incredible Cornelia Funke is working on this as well and I just love her books. I'm also really looking forward to the illustrations that will be in this, I have a feeling they will be stunning.

Wilder Girls
Wilder Girls by Rory Power
Publication: July 9th, 2019
Delacorte Press
Hardcover. 368 pages.

"It's been eighteen months since the Raxter School for Girls was put under quarantine. Since the Tox hit and pulled Hetty's life out from under her. 

It started slow. First the teachers died one by one. Then it began to infect the students, turning their bodies strange and foreign. Now, cut off from the rest of the world and left to fend for themselves on their island home, the girls don't dare wander outside the school's fence, where the Tox has made the woods wild and dangerous. They wait for the cure they were promised as the Tox seeps into everything. 

But when Byatt goes missing, Hetty will do anything to find her, even if it means breaking quarantine and braving the horrors that lie beyond the fence. And when she does, Hetty learns that there's more to their story, to their life at Raxter, than she could have ever thought true."
This sounds like everything I love and I've heard nothing but raves from people who have already this. I actually just won an ARC of this in a giveaway so I'm anxiously awaiting it's arrival, but I can only imagine how gorgeous the book is going to be when it comes out. This sounds incredible!
