Brunette Ambition
by Lea Michele

Publisher: Harmony Books
Pages: 208
Format: book
Buy the Book: Amazon

Goodreads:  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.

Kritters Thoughts:  The world knows Lea Michele from Broadway, Glee and from the magazines, but Lea Michele took a moment and wrote a book that tells her story and includes some great life and beauty tips to make it a well rounded book.

I am a Glee fan.  I am a fan because I love music and I love the mix of broadway and pop - have never aimed to be a singer, but have always loved music, so I have been a Glee fan since the pilot.  I am also a Lea Michele fan.  I didn't know about her until Glee, but since being introduced I have loved finding out about her Broadway past.  With her recent ups and downs, I loved reading a book that she wrote about her family and friends who have been there before Glee and Corey and will be there long after.  She did a great job of balancing putting her story in the book as well as health, beauty and life tips.  

I was so thankful to receive this for review and loved reading a chapter here and there over a week and a half.  It was great to read a bit at a time.

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
