Brunette Ambition Reviews
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.
As I feared this girl hasn't lived long enough to have much to write about. I'm sure this book will appeal to her teenage fans of Glee. Personally, I saw her three times in Spring Awakening and I was look for much more about that show. I'm so glad to see the kids I saw on Broadway breaking into the bigtime world, cause they were all bigtime talented!
Interesting combo of memoir, recipes, makeup and exercise tips done in an easy, conversational style. Lots of beautiful full color pictures and behind the scenes tidbits.
It's no secret that I am a huge Lea Michele fan and have been since her days in Spring Awakening. To be honest, I did not expect much considering most of the books that I have read by celebrities I have not liked, but this was really good!
This definitely has a similar feel (in at least about half of the chapters) to Lauren Conrad's Beauty and Style (and any other makeup how-to book). However, I enjoyed this book way more than those. It was a perfect blend of personal anecdotes among the how-tos ...more
I read this book in a day so it is pretty safe to say I liked it. I agree with the reviewer before me who said if anybody from Glee does something I would buy it, no matter what it is... I love Lea Michele. I think she is a great role model and I love watching the character of Rachel Berry grow and flourish on Glee. I found the parts about Lea's life to be the most interesting. Gonna have to try some of her recipes and beauty/health tips!!! :)
Lea Michele's Virgo shines through in her book. Don't get me wrong, I like Virgos especially since I am one. I'm just saying she is straight up organized. Not going to lie: I skipped around a bunch because the style, food, and exercise stuff just bored me to tears. I have no need for half that stuff in my real life so I wasn't compelled to suffer through all that (sorry, not sorry). Overall, I wasn't as impressed by this as I wanted to be. I like Lea and honestly, I thought she was going to give ...more
I did not love this book, but I did not hate it either. It had some useful information and good points, but it was crammed with so many different topics that I found it an odd mix.
I first became a Lea Michele fan from Glee. I have since developed a major girl crush on her and wish she was my best friend. I was not the target audience for this book. The book seemed targeted to younger Lea Michele fans.
I would say her book is equal parts autobiography, self-help and advice. I enjoyed the auto ...more
I had waited a long time to read Brunette Ambition and I'm so happy to finally being able to say that I have. I wouldn't say I'm Lea Michele biggest fan, but I've always admired her work and especially her debut album that was released earlier this spring. You'll find everything from really great beauty tips to easy recipes. I love how diverse this book is. There's so many fun and insightful photos, and I especially loved reading the love letter to Jonathan Groff. I really recommend this book if ...more
