About Me

Yes, what about me? My name is Magdalena and I’m Swedish. And, I’m quite sure that I’m a bookaholic and a book hoarder. But, I don’t mind. And. the best part is that I have found thanks to reading and reviewing books a whole lot of new friends.

It’s a Mad Mad World was created in 2014. Before that had I never really wholehearted written reviews. I started to rate and review on a Swedish book site called boktipset a couple of years ago, then I discovered Shelfari which led me to Goodreads. And. that’s when my life changed and I really became more serious about writing reviews.  Then  I created a sister site called And Now For Something Completly Different over at blogspot which consisted of just reviews. But, last year I decided to move and A Bookaholic Swede was created!

And, at the same time as I created It’s a Mad Mad World did I join Netgalley. Looking back, that was really the turning point in my life. And, now around 2 years later have I quite a busy life reviewing books, both my own, but also ARC’s from NetGalley and Edelweiss. Not to mentioned all the blog tours I do.

Recently I joined Fresh Fiction and have written some review for that site.

  1. Dear Magdalena,

    Right now, my short story is a single plankton in an ocean of sharp toothed books, but I am hoping that once you and your peers review it, it would amass to much more than that.

    My name is Vanya Ferreira and I am a new author hoping to make a long, productive career out of writing. My short story – “The Story of Lucius Cane” – was published on Amazon five days ago. It belongs to the dark fantasy genre and it has approximately 7,000 words.

    Here is the synopsis:

    London, 1794. Lucius Cane, a peculiar vampire, comes upon an opponent the likes of which he has never seen before – a brute with remarkable abilities. But not all is as it seems as their encounter unfolds in a manner that neither of them expected.

    The story is currently available free of charge in an effort to get as many people as possible to read it. You can download it here:

    If requested, I can provide the MOBI, ePUB and PDF copy of the story.

    Hoping that it will spark your interest and that is review worthy….

    Thank you very much in advance.

  3. Hello Bookaholic Swede:

            I thought you’d might enjoy a free advanced release e-copy of the brand new sci-fi fantasy comedy 11,984.  This is not a conventional novel. It contains a lot of creative innovations, including punctuation from the future. 

            Thousands of years in the future, humanity has finally eradicated war, poverty, and all forms of human suffering. With no problems or unanswered questions remaining in the world, everyone is bored out of their minds, that is until the sun starts putting on a light show, the first warning sign it’s getting ready to supernova!

           Our heroes from the year 11,984 are your typical family of two mothers, three fathers, a couple of kids, and plenty of robots. Fun-loving Troll, so called because of her giant troll doll hair(They don’t have names in the future, or wear clothes) is the world’s leading hydrologist/interior decorator, whose plans to retire quickly change when faced with the drought to end all droughts. Bulb, bald head glowing like a lightbulb, is the cranky Minister of Rational Thought. His faith in science is tested by the total collapse of society. Last but not least is Litterbot, the clumsy garbagebot who gets no respect, and whose highest priority–to clean–is frustrated by a world without messes. 

           As the family works on building an escape spaceship, the sun bombards them in changing colors, which unbeknownst to them causes radiation insanity. The sky colors keep growing stronger, and these totally peaceful people are at each other’s throats. It gets so bad their bodies mutate (which helps them work faster) and world computer crashes (forcing them to read primitive paper books, and rely more on Litterbot.) Will they launch before getting smashed to pieces? 

          My first humor novel, Foxavier and Plinka, was published in 2013, and is also available.

    May I email the complete 11,984 manuscript of 75,000 words?

    Thank you.
