New Release: Wicked Jealous: A Love Story by Robin Palmer

Wicked Jealous: A Love Story by Robin Palmer was released earlier this month. Her original trilogy of fairy tale inspired YA novels were published a few years ago. One of them, Geek Charming, is even bargain priced in paperback right now. And it was made into a TV movie. I haven't heard if Palmer's been contracted for more titles in this world but these are fun and remind me of the trend in the previous decade for contemporary rather than high fantasy fairy tale retellings in Hollywood.

Book description:

A fresh and funny twist on Snow White from the author of Cindy Ella and Geek Charming!

Simone never saw herself as the "cute girl"--she was always the chunky smartmouth. But after a year of avoiding her wicked almost-stepmonster through Zumba class, Simone's now sporting a whole new retro style. And people keep acting oddly. One thing: her stepmonster seems to be trying to accidentally kill her, or at least fatten her back up. And so when Simone's brother offers to let her move in with him and his six roommates for the summer, Simone jumps at the chance for some normalcy. Only living with seven very different college boys isn't exactly going to help her land her very own happily ever after . . .
