    I picked this up because I wanted something light and fluffy but I’ve discovered that there’s such a thing as too light and fluffy. This book was just too sickly sweet for my tastes, I found myself constantly cringing. I don’t think it helped that the narrator was 13 going on 14 and tried to act like she was 18. Cue major eye roll!

    I really liked this book! This is the basic storyline: Nessa Joanne Mulholland, aka Marilyn Monroe's No. 1 teenage fan, is used to moving around a lot. This time, however, she's relocating in movie-star style - crossing the Atlantic on board the Majestic, headed for Paris from New York City. And it really would be in movie-star style if it wasn't for the fact that she's bringing her cringe-fest professor dad along for the ride. (Dad's specialisation: human mating rituals - need Nessa say more?) [...]

    Adorable.So adorable.This was cuteness incarnate in a novel.So cute!!!However, there were several qualms I had this book. Do not get discouraged by these problems because this book is adorable!!!This is a perfect book for a light, short, fluffy read meant for just "aw" purposes. It's cute, and it has a little meaning behind it.So adorable.My single, most important qualm. Nessa. She was an adorable character, but sometimes she was really immature. That said, she is supposed to be immature, so I g [...]

    I absolutely love Marilyn Monroe and this book is such a scream! Nessa is totally obsessed with Marilyn and conjures up this whole plot in her head that her boat trip to France is exactly like the movie Gentlemen prefer blondes with Holly Isles resembling Dorothy and Nessa resembling Lorelei. Mix in Holly's hot nephew and this is one cruise you wouldn't want to miss out on. If only dreams could come true :)

    This is a cute, sweet romantic comedy with enough humor to delight thirteen-year-old readers. Although it isn’t nearly as good as Being Hartley, the first Allison Rushby novel I’ve read that inspired me to give this book a chance, it has enough of everything to keep its readers entertained from start to end.

    Nessa Joanne Mulholland is just a teeny bit obsessed with Marilyn Monroe. But when she finds Marilynisms all the time in her daily life can she really be blamed? On a cruise ship with her dad, Nessa meets thirty-something Holly Isles, a world famous actress and someone Nessa feels like might be a kindred Marilyn fan. Holly has three broken engagements to her name and after bonding over mocktails and maraschino cherries, Nessa starts to believe that her real life is starting to feel a lot like he [...]

    This was such a super cute, fun read!! I read it in a matter of a few hours, give or take, since I had to stop yesterday and pick it back up today. It was a really quick read and the narration was so lovely. I adored Nessa's voice so much. It was so easy to read and I just flew through it. Allison Rushby has such a unique writing style, truly capturing the voice of a thirteen (almost-fourteen!) year old girl. Just to give you an example:Someone whistles. And this time, I don't need to look aroun [...]

    Read more reviews on my blog, Words and Tea Bottles.Received as a free ARC from NetGalley.Diamonds Are a Teen’s Best Friend is one of those books that seems like it should be for younger people (maybe classified as a middle-grade book instead of young adult) but it’s really not. I mean it could be, but it’s not dumbed-down like a lot of middle-grade books tend to be when dealing with some of the issues this one does.There are a lot of clever things about this book. Of course there’s the [...]

    The book started of fun. I really liked Nessa, and also throughout the book I liked her (though I got slightly annoyed with how much she was butting into everything).Also the ending, God I already predicted that the first time she and a certain somebody were sitting at Holly's table, and it took until the ending for it to be revealed. Lame!Also Marc, oh Lord was he an annoying pest. Accusing people, saying rude things and not even try to listen to someone else? Seriously? And also sometimes swit [...]

    Wow I loved this bookCan't wait to read the rest.I remember when reading this, I was shouting at Nessa to follow her gut.She should've and I felt really sad for her in the end but I'm gkad things didnt get worse.

    Chick lit for teens with a twist of Marilyn. Enjoyable guilty pleasure :)

    Fun light reading to laugh along to between the more serious books.A thirteen year old going on sixteen, a cruise ship trip with her Dad who is a socioligist. A movie star and a cute guy who thinks she could pass for 19. Fun, frowns and frivilous times make for a great plot.

    A free digital copy of the book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.This is marketed as a YA novel but I think that Diamonds are a Teen’s Best Friend would have been better off as Middlegrade since although the main character was aged 13, she acted more like a spoiled child than an adolescent.I didn’t enjoy this book as much as I did mainly because of the vexing characters. The main guy character, Marcus, was so rude and I couldn’t put up with his churlish behavior. [...]

    "Diamonds" tells the story of Nessa Mulholland, Marilyn Monroe's biggest (13 years-old) fan. She boards a boat with her father bound for Paris. Her father is a sociologist who specializes in human sexuality and is using the cruise for research purposes. But Nessa has found something to be excited about--the one and only Holly Isles is on the cruise! Holly befriends Nessa, who believes that she is living the movie Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Knowing Holly has come off a devastating break up, Nessa [...]

    From page one, I could tell that DIAMONDS ARE A TEEN'S BEST FRIEND would be an adorably fun read, and my expectations were definitely met right up until the very last page. As soon as I met Nessa, a spunky thirteen year old dreamer with her head stuck in the clouds --- and in her favorite Marilyn Monroe movies (which have become a bit of an obsession in her young life, to the point that she seems to integrate her favorite scenes into her everyday life quite frequently -- with disastrous endings!

    NOTE: This is an edited review. I had a different review, one that I didn't feel good about. I felt like I was too harsh and cruel and that is not what I started this blog for. I want to be honest, but I don't want to do it in any way that can be construed as mean. After I wrote the review I felt bad about it and it kept nagging at me for days and I had considered changing it. I even talked it over with some people I trust. Today I read this article and that made it final for me- I was changing [...]

    Diamonds are a Teen's Best Friend is a book I never knew existed until only a few weeks ago. Written by Australian author Allison Rushby, it's a fun read for tweens and teens and is a feel-good caper well worth reading. As may be apparent from the title, Diamonds are a Teen's Best Friend features an almost fourteen-year-old main character who might just be Marilyn Monroe's biggest fan. Nessa Joanna Mulholland has seen Marilyn's movies hundreds of times, can quote all her lines and has no problem [...]

    I received this galley in exchange for an honest review.Diamonds are a Teen's Best Friend is a sweet, cute, middle grade read about a 13 year old girl named Nessa. Nessa is completely obsessed with Marilyn Monroe, and her father even made her go see a therapist because of her obsession! On a cruise to France, Nessa starts to notice certain parallels to her favorite Marilyn movie, Gentleman Prefer Blonds. I loved the Marilyn Monroe references! I still have yet to see one of her movies, but she is [...]

    This tale follows the matchmaking misadventures of Nessa--an (almost) 14 y/o Marilyn Monroe fanatic on a transatlantic cruise. Aboard ship she's befriended by Holly Isles, movie star and jilted bride. Marc, Holly's teenaged nephew, is part swoony boy, part guard dog. The fun begins when Nessa becomes determined to help Holly find the "Perfect Man" Marilyn-style. She comes up with a bunch of behavior guidelines for Holly to adopt--like act silly, giggle all the time, act helpless and needy--all t [...]

    MY THOUGHTSLOVED ITNessa Joanne Mulholland has a slight Marilyn Monroe addiction and she tries to channel her no matter what in a sort of "What Would Marilyn Do"system. She is thirteen and soon to be fourteen, has just shipped out to a new location with her professor father as he travels to his new job in France as well as conducting a study about vacation romances. Her whole life is turned upside down when she spots Holly Isle on the boat and Holly actually speaks to her and OMG! she befriends [...]

    3.5 stars, rounding upFirst, a confession. I really don't know much about Marilyn Monroe. I'm not even sure that I've seen one of her movies all the way through. I know, I know. It's a shame. (hanging my head here)Okay, now that confession time is over, I can say that even though I don't know Marilyn Monroe quite as well as Nessa, I really didn't feel like I was clueless throughout the book. The author does a good job of explaining the Marilyn-isms. But, I would say that if you've seen any Maril [...]

    So, first off, I have to admit that I've never watched any Marilyn Monroe movies. It's probably considered blasphemy in Nessa's eyes, but, alas, the review must go on.I didn't have a hard time understanding the plot of the story, even though I was unfamiliar with Monroe's works. It's all kind of a cute, fun read. There's some dancing and awkward situations and just a lot of smiling potential in general.I loved how absorbed Nessa was by Monroe's legacy. It was quirky, and yet sophisticated at the [...]

    The thing that turned me off of the book was the format the author used everytime Nessa emailed Alexa. The email would be one long sentence down the center of the page it was quite frustrating to read so I would skip all the emails. The emails should have been in same format as the rest of the book and to make it stand out the author could have used icons and different color font. Examplea heart in front of any of Nessa emails along with pink font and a smiley face in front of Alexas email along [...]

    Cute. I mean it was so cute. The whole Marilyn Monroe was unique and added just that little bit more to the story. Plus the whole thing with the celebrity was super cool. That being said, it was super predictable and that made me get frustrated with the characters. Particularly with Nessa. The way that she missed all the obvious clues towards the revealing of a particular relationship was annoying and every time you think she'll get it - she doesn't. It was a good story, entertaining and definit [...]

    Full of cheese. Teenager, Nessa, has an over active imagination. When she and her father take a cruise and find that there is a celebrity actress inboard, Nessa becomes her little pet. Nessa tries her 13-year-old hand at matchmaking just like in a Marilyn Monroe movie. Ugh!! Surprisingly, nothing turns out the way she plans. Cheesy!!

    Wendy
    Thanks to NetGalley for the ARCI LOVE Marilyn Monroe and when I was Nessa's age I acted just like her, well except without the whole causing trouble part. This book was a hoot! and although you can tell where it was heading it was still fun. But there were times I just wanted to shake Nessa for not listening to others and making bigger messes of things. love this series. Chicken fillet!
