Cover reveal: Shade by Chad Nicholas

Hello readers! I’m back from the land of not knowing how to survive without a proper treatment for my chronic illness to reveal the cover and the synopsis of the new book of Chad Nicholas.

I’ve read Nightmare by the same author last year, and I really liked! It’s a horror story with some disturbing elements, so please be aware.

Title: Shade

Author: Chad Nicholas

Release date: October 5th, 2021

Pre order on


All they had to do was catch him.

At first, it was just another case, just another serial killer to stop. They had done it countless times before; this time shouldn’t have been any different, but soon days turned into weeks. Desperation set in, and the victims started getting younger. What were they missing? Why couldn’t they save the victims? They would have given their own lives to stop the monster, to finally put an end to his killing spree. In the end, they almost succeeded.

But then, eight months ago, everything went wrong.

From the aftermath of one monster, a new one is born; a killer more lethal than they could have possibly imagined, like something ripped straight out of their worst nightmares. With it comes a new potential victim struggling with the skeletons in her own closet and the guilt of past mistakes. The longer she waits for the new monster to find her, to kill her, the more she questions if, deep down, she wants him to.

The desperate hunt for a serial killer, an ex-soldier losing his grip on reality, and a victim who’s not sure she’s worth saving come together as past and present intertwine, in this explosive psychological thriller that begs the question:

Can you stop a monster without becoming one?

It’s a perfect book to read during October (Halloween Time! Can’t wait!!)

Wrap Up: June 2021

Hello readers!

We are now fully in summer, long days, a lot of sun, and I don’t have the willpower to read…

Anyway, in June I’ve managed to read 11 books, and I’m still 2 books behind on my Goodreads challenge.

5 stars:

A ghost in the theatre is another great installment in the Ruby and Nessa Ghost hunters series! It’s funny and full of different characters, and also different ghosts!

A me le guardie! is the italian version of Guards!Guards! and I think I’ve never laughed so much and so hard with a fantasy book.

4 stars:

First in a trilogy, Ra the Mighty: cat detective is a great middle grade book about the cat of the Pharaoh and his friend, a scarab. They investigate all around the palace, and it’s great because of the setting, the location, and Ra, a wonderful but sometimes lazy black cat.

3 stars:

Unfortunately, Unlikely friendships gain only 3 stars for me, when Unlikely Loves has gained 5 solid stars. It’s sadder than the other one, and I knew some of the stories.

2 stars:

Molte vite, un solo amore (lots of lives, one love) is a non-fiction book about reincarnation and soulmates. The more I think about it, the more I didn’t like the ideas behind this book.

How to talk in a humourous way about demons and exorcisms? Simple, write When life gives you demons. I really like the title and the cover, but it’s very superficial.

You are invited has the potential to be a great horror/gothic book… but it fails along the way. I was expecting more horror scenes, more ghosts, and then nothing, only human greed and influencer.

1 star/DNF:

La fiera is a horror novella (22 pages), and it’s too short to develop a story.

I thought I will love Frozen Charlotte: creepy dolls, setting at the Isle of Skye in Scotland… In fact, I hated it. The author seems to hate Scottish people, and there’s a lot of violence againt animals and unrequited love. No thanks.

Loveless, childless, clueless and memoryless, I’ll add. I can’t remember a single thing about this book.

I’m the heartless person who DNF a middle grade book like The Unimaginary friend. Yes, I am.

And that’s all!

Happy reading month!
