      Well, I'm unimpressed. In fairness, maybe this novel wasn't written for me. Because, of course, there are YA novels and then there are YA novels. Some (such as Hunger Games/Harry Potter) have crossover appeal, some (say Gossip Girl, Secrets of my Hollywood Life) not so much. However, I think that when you're doing a FAIRYTALE retelling, the appeal SHOULD be there. In short, a good book should be a good book for any age, regardless of who it's marketed to. And while the teen pandering in this one [...]

      Wicked Jealous by Robin Palmer is a modern day retelling of Snow White. Simone Walker does have skin as white as snow and hair as black as ink and lips as red as blood. But she also has a love of snack foods which have earned her the moniker “Weird Fat Girl.” One day Simone accidentally wanders into a Zumba class. She reluctantly begins taking classes and meets her Zumba loving fairy godmothers. As Simone begins losing weight she gains confidence and a new look that makes her beautiful. Simo [...]

      When a book makes me laugh so hard that I almost choke/pee my pants, it's a winner! If you are the kind of person who gets the January Blah's, then you must read this book! Robin Palmer's writing is absolutely hilarious! Plus, I really enjoyed the story, a modern day retelling of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. Simone has grown up with out a mother, since her mom died in childbirth. Simone has drowned her grief over not having a mother in sweets, especially krusty cakes. When Simone's Father g [...]

      My favorite fairy takes are: Rumplestilskin, Rapunzel, The Princess and the Pea, and even though it is not really a fairy tale per say, but a compilation of all fairy tales, The 10th Kingdom. Who cannot stop laughing when they remember the part where the toad gives them the riddle about the doors and on how he lies, etc And then Virginia's dad just picks him up and chucks him thru one of the doors, which happens to be the door of death. I really do love that part!I love when authors put differen [...]

      A fun addition for those who love the fairytale retelling genre--to be avoided by all others. Completely predictable and mostly unbelievable. Did not like the incorporation of Snow White's apple, and I resent the time it took me to remember all seven of Disney's dwarves. I would just like to point out, that I HATE retellings of DISNEY fairytales. Go back to the original for retellings please!

      Wicked JealousRobin PalmerRomance It all starts when Simone Walker’s dad says she can say with her brother for a couple of months. It’s already bad enough that her evil step-mother Hillary, is a rich snob, who obviously is trying to get rid of her. She goes and lives with her brother and his 3 roommates, Narc, Blush, and Noob. Simone wants to fit into her favorite blue dress at One Person’s Garbage Another One’s Treasure. It’s a size 8 and she is a size 14. She decides she wants to loo [...]

      This was so stupid.The main character is supposed to be someone who went through an eating disorder. her personality deosn't not fit that though, and everything was just terrible.

    8. Sarah on said:

      i really loved this book, I've always been a fan of modern fairy-tales books and they're isn't a lot of snow white ones so this was a really good.

    9. Taylor Ellis on said:

      Alrighty, my first review on this site, let's go!This book, like most of the other books by Robin Palmer, is based quite a bit upon the fairytale Snow White. Simone Walker is a very shy, kind of nerdy girl who is quite invisible in school, to where even the film geeks don't notice her. After going into high school, Simone discovers the unique taste and texture of a snack called Tastykake Butterscotch Krimpets, and that, along with sheet cakes from Ralph's and her diminishing friends list has mad [...]

    10. Theisobelgarcia on said:

      This book is actually a solid 3.5. Fairly enjoyable to read, completely over the top, retelling of Snow White. Simone is a Molly Ringwald-esque high-schooler (a point made explicit, because who needs a metaphor), overweight, with one really good friend, constantly having to fend off passive-aggressive actions and remarks from her father’s scheming girlfriend. The utter incomprehension of her father borders on child abuse, including sending your teenage daughter into a houseful of college boys [...]

    11. Elizabeth Roberts on said:

      I'm waaaay outside the intended age for this book, but it was still really enjoyable. Trying to match the characters to Snow White had me doing a search for the 7 dwarfs when I couldn't remember all of their names. I'd recommend this to anyone searching for a fun, light read.

      Fun retelling of Snow White! It was an easy beach read for vacation 😄

    13. Ray on said:

      Wicked Jealous is an interesting retelling of the "Snow White" fairy tale taking place within a modern high school "slice-of-life" setting. Broadly faithful to the original tale, it nonetheless provides interesting twists here and there.Plot: Simone wants to become more popular at Castle Heights High School and to grab the hot guy she has a crush on, but her (lack of) exercise and healthy eating habits are starting to get in the way. Making things worse is the envy of her new stepmother - or is [...]

      What an adorable book! Wicked Jealous: A Love Story is a modern re-telling of Snow White and it is super cute, entertaining, and you'll find yourself rooting against the evil step-monster-to-be and rooting for the sweet girl who is slowly coming into her own. This is the perfect feel good summer book and everyone should scoop it up when it releases on July 19th.The book begins by introducing us to Simone, the "Weird Fat Girl" who is most comfortable when she feels invisible, hiding from the worl [...]

      Used to being known as That Weird Fat Girl, Simone Walker has no problem with keeping her head down and staying invisible. But when Hillary, her "stepmother-to-be" (despite the fact that Simone's workaholic father is avoiding the whole "marriage" issue) moves in and takes over, Simone has to find a way to get out of the house. Even if it means inadvertently joining a Zumba class full of middle-aged women. Soon, she's looking and feeling healthier -- which is lucky, because when Hillary kicks her [...]

    16. Audrey Wilkerson on said:

      Briefly: Simone’s dad is a very busy writer/producer. Ever since his sitcom about a man stuck in a dog’s body has been on TV, Simone has seen less and less of him. Her brother, Max, is in college and lives with his roommates, and now Dad’s girlfriend has maneuvered her way into staying with Simone and her father while her floors are being redone. Not the subtle type, Dad’s girlfriend, Hillary, has made is quite clear (to anyone within a 100-mile radius) that she intends to be the new Mrs [...]

      A fairytale retelling will get my attention every time. Plus, WICKED JEALOUS has an eye-catching cover, with that shiny red apple and cotton candy pink background. Robin Palmer's update of Snow White is timely, clever, and over the top.I thought the Los Angeles setting worked perfectly. Simone Walker begins the novel unhappy with her looks. And why not when she lives in the epicenter of Hollywood, which favors one look above all others? Hillary, her father's young girlfriend, is never likeable. [...]

      addictedtonovels/ARC was provided by Penguin CanadaI haven't had much time to read lately, but this book has been one of the few that has gotten onto my summer reading list so far. It was a highly enjoyable, good summer read. When I had first started reading, I my first impression of Simone was that she was this wimpy, overweight girl that would do nothing for herself. Actually though, she took control of her life, and her bad eating habits and did something about it. Simone wasn't the only char [...]

      Title: Wicked Jealous Speak, 2012, 272 pp $ 9.99Author: Robin Palmer ISBN: 978-0-142-41894-9 There is nothing worse then being betrayed and mistreated by someone who is close to your family member. This person was the girlfriend of Simone’s father. Simone did not know that there was anything wrong with how her father’s girlfriend, Hillary, treated her at first. She just thinks that Hillary is annoying. Hillary show some odd behavior like when they are at the restaurant, she would keep giving [...]

      When I first saw this book and read the teaser, I thought, alright, might be worth the look. Boy, was I disappointed. For the record, this is not the first modernized fairy tale I have read or for that matter, film I have seen. This book was disappointing. There are several things that seem to bog this story down. First off, the prologue was unnecessary, and when it connected to the point in the story, it wasn't the same. A prologue does one or two things, connects to a future part of the story, [...]

      Cute! Full review to come!Review at: wordsareinnermusicWicked Jealous is a story about a girl names Simone. She’s not your average princess, but a girl who’s still searching for who she is in life. When her dad and almost step mom leave for a vacation, Simone moves in with Matt, her brother, and six other college students. Stuff happens, and then more stuff happens, and there’s a cute boy or two. And Zumba. There is lots of Zumba in this book.Simone is going through a lot of changes, and w [...]

      WARNING! SPOILERS AT THE END OF THIS REVIEW!I liked this book on the whole. As an avid young adult fiction reader, I have come across a few bad books. This is not one of them. I'd previously read Geek Charming by Robin Palmer and not really liked it that much, but found it sort of superficial, but this one was marginally better. I liked Simone as a character, and all the fashion components of the story were parts I particularly enjoyed. I love how she gets all her stuff from second hand or cheap [...]

      Simone is "the weird fat girl" in the wake of her mother's death (at her birth), her father's workaholicism and shiny new girlfriend, and her general inability to deal with the intricacies of high school life. She has retreated behind her hair, her extra large vintage concert t shirts and copious amounts of snack foods. When her father's girlfriend (who has an odd obsession with mirrors and red lipstick, as well as feeding Simone apples even though she's deathly allergic) takes all of her snack [...]

      This book is a wickedly funny take on the fairytale Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Several films focus on this story and I'm sure there's more than one retelling, but this book took the caketerally.Written in the same world as Geek Charming, Simone is a big girl who eats her emotions. She's unique. She loves anything vintage, french films, and her best friend. Her father is dating the most subtly wicked woman in Hollywood, her brother left her to deal with all this alone, and the wicked stepmo [...]

      Don't let my 3 star rating of the book scare you, the story was actually really cute. It is a nice, light read that is perfect if you don't expect a whole bunch (which you aren't supposed to). A modern-day retelling of Snow White with the typical cringe-worthy scenes that all high-schoolers have. Even though I knew that the book was a retelling, I didn't really think much of it, so I wasn't looking for all of the immediate connections (although they were quite obvious 1/3 of the way through). I [...]

      sybillinebooks.tumblrFinally got to finish Wicked Jealous: A Love Story by Robin Palmer earlier today and I have to admit that I actually loved it. It is by the way a re-telling of the fairy tale Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. It is btw, the newest addition to Robin Palmer's fairy tale re-telling novels. The novel's heroine is called Simone.Another re-telling from Robin Palmer and this time it's a re-telling of Snow White. First of all, I love Simone. I could probably relate to her since she' [...]
