The Queen of Blogging by Therese Loreskä

 

the queen of bloggingBook Description:

The Queen of blogging is a fast paced, entertaining story about making ends meet when you have toddlers, a husband that works too much and showing off your life on a blog for the outside world to see.

Kajsa runs Sweden’s largest Health and Fitness blog. There’s only one small problem; it’s all a big lie. Between her blog entries on healthy nutritious porridge and flashy running shoes, she lies on the sofa watching TV and eating sweets. Her only exercise is using the remote control.

Her life seems perfect: A beautiful house in an attractive suburb of Stockholm, three children, a loving husband and loads of money.

However, things start to crumble when she accidently writes on her blog that she is best friends with a famous Hollywood personal trainer. The problem is he’s never met, let alone heard of her.

An ambitious journalist, who doesn’t believe Kajsa has been honest about her blog or her friendship with the personal trainer, sets out to destroy her.

Besides having to handle the annoying journalist, she must also deal with Peter, “the blog following hunk”, and a bizarre and outrageous priest who keeps spreading Kajsa’s secrets all over town!

Bestselling Swedish author Therese Loreskar writes with a never-ending sense of humour and energy.


My Review

Funny, very occasionally laugh out loud funny, light hearted, but with the realities of modern life, ie, the Internet, and the idea of being anonymous when really you are not.

Kajsa is the Queen of Blogging in Sweden and her blog is all about fitness, but Kajsa is not the fittest of people. And when she starts to write little white lies on her blog, well, we can assume the worst for her. It is a great short book, a very quick read. I found rather funny the parts where Kajsa would go out with her friend to take photos of her doing her exercises.

The book is written from the point of view of the blog as well as Kajsa herself, getting up to her daily life juggling her husband, family and blog.

I can highly recommend the book for a quick rainy afternoon in as it is only 145 pages, but the good news is there is a second part on the way soon and I hope it is just as good.

Author Therese Loreskar (2)About the Author

Therese Loreskär started her carrier in 2010 as a Swedish author. She self-published her first novel which was very well received and quickly sold out!
In 2014 she signed up to a publishing house. Her novel called “The Queen of Blogging” was released and the feedback was overwhelming! People referred to the book as a modern “Bridget Jones” and couldn’t get enough of the main character, Kajsa. The next book “The Queen of Blogging 2” was released shortly after to all the reader’s delight.
 Therese has since then published 4 bestselling children’s books as well. She often does tours at different schools and talks about her books. The children love her visits and Therese always enjoys talking to her little readers.
 “The Queen of Blogging 1 & 2” have also been recorded and launched as audiobooks in addition to paper backs in Sweden. Her biggest dream is to have “The Queen of Blogging series” made into films, and she secretly keeps a list in an old drawer of presumptive actors that would do the characters in her books justice.
Her never-ending energy for writing and entertaining people with her characters is her biggest trait.
 Therese lives in the countryside along the west coast of Sweden. She has a rather big and busy household, with (one) husband, two children, one deaf cat, five hamsters and a grandmother.
 When she’s not busy making up stories and writing silly things, she enjoys the nature, people, history, redecorating the house without asking anyone for permission, and all other kinds of creativity.
