Brunette Ambition Reviews
Lea Michele is best known for her role as Rachel Berry on the wildly popular TV show Glee, but she was also an incredibly successful Broadway performer before she rose to TV stardom. In this memoir/how-to book, Lea tells her story of her rise to fame, as well as gives health, fitness, and beauty advice.
Brunette Ambition is beautifully laid out with many color photos and organized in such a way that makes it feel more like a magazine than a book. I know its unconventional and innovative approach ...more
Being a self-proclaimed Gleek, I was ecstatic when I saw that Lea Michele had a book out. It was an extra indulgent treat to listen to her read her own words in her upbeat voice.
The book starts out as more of the autobiography I was hoping for, revealing details of a young, pre-Glee Lea Michele and a glimpse into her home life. The beginning few chapters of the book were full of inspirational messages about being ourselves and embracing our uniqueness rather than trying to washout and be like ev ...more
Lea Michele's Brunette Ambition was a very grounded and interesting read. The book includes some of her life story - from her first show on Broadway and to her role as Rachel Berry on Fox's hitshow Glee. She's a very grounded individual, who clearly has worked hard to achieve both her fame and her health in life. Her health and beauty tips are realistic (unlike some other celebrity tips) and actually include some fun things I'll consider trying throughout the rest of the summer. Lea Michele also ...more
I'm a fan of Lea Michelle. 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.
Overall, a quick and fun read!
I really liked this book. The bits about make up and exercises don't interest me very much, but it's nice to read Lea's memories about it and how she values friendship and hard work. I'm really very proud of her.
This book was packed with helpful tips about exercise and make up but it was seriously lacking Lea Michele! It felt like a compilation of make over magazine articles with the occasional tidbit about her life thrown in. It was interesting but ... not what I was expecting.
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 poi ...more
I had a hard time not throwing up. Lea should visit a 3rd world country and check her priorities. I suppose I'm the wrong audience--narcissistic, first-world, teenage girls would think this book is fascinating.
It sounds a lot like Rachel Berry herself wrote this.
