The star of the hit show Glee shares her experiences and insider tips on beauty, fashion, inner strength, and more in an illustrated book that’s part memoir, part how-to, and part style guide.

Lea Michele is one of the hardest working performers in show business. Whether she’s starring as Rachel Berry on Glee, rocking a glamorous look on the red carpet, recording her solo album, or acting as the spokesperson for L’Oreal, Lea is the ultimate multi-tasker. She knows better than anyone that it is difficult to be your best self and keep things in perspective when your to-do list is overflowing and you are faced with challenges, so she’s developed a foolproof system for remaining healthy and centered. In Brunette Ambition, she reveals the lessons and advice that have worked for her--from beauty and fashion secrets to fitness tips, and career insights. Supplemented with never-before-seen photos and revealing anecdotes, it’s the book Lea wishes she’d had in her teens and early twenties: A practical and inspirational guide to harnessing tenacity and passion and living the fullest life, no matter what obstacles life puts in your way.


I really enjoyed reading this book.  Lea Michelle gives us a quick look into her life.

This is like most biographies.  It’s a mix of biography, recipes, fitness, food, and taking care of yourself.  I found myself writing down some of the things Lea Michelle said as inspiration.  I loved getting the peek into her life growing up.  She shows how important her family is to her, and how she’s made friends through the years.

I think my favorite parts of this book were the recipes and healthy/beauty parts.  The food she makes looks absolutely yummy.  I’m definitely going to be trying some of them. I also like that she gives ideas for spa days at home, and has a pretty great workout plan.

If you are a fan of Lea Michelle and want to know a little bit more about her inspirations, life, and daily regimens, Brunette Ambition is definitely a book to pick up.
