Brunette Ambition
Release: May 20, 2014
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.

What We Thought:
We though that this book would be a great book for a preteen to teenage age girl, but really it wasn’t quite our cup of tea.  It is more of an inspiring book especially for that age group. We really just feel that this book was basically made for the whole Seventeen readers audience. There were a lot of helpful tips & recipe’s in this book such as a nice hair masque recipe. We enjoyed the photo’s and layout, although we didn’t like how everything was kind of broken up. For example, at one point she’s talking about her life as an actress, and her career and then she drops a recipe in the middle of it, but then later on she has a section of recipe’s. We just thought that it was kind of a random way to throw things in, maybe to keep the attention of the younger crowd? We we’re really familiar with Lea Michele’s work, so it was nice to be able to read a little about her life and career. We totally recommend this for younger readers, and fans of the show Glee.

In a Nutshell:
This was a great book for fans of the show Glee, and also a inspiring read for younger teenage girls. We didn’t really love it because we felt like we were a bit out of the targeted age group.
