A few weeks ago I saw Lea Michele on The Dr. Oz show and heard she had written a book so I thought I would give it a try.
Brunette Ambition by Lea Michele is an interesting array of personal stories, information about some of Lea's favorite things and tales from her professional life. I have always liked Lea Michele. I thought she had a beautiful voice and felt so sad for her when her on screen/off screen boyfriend Cory Monteith passed last year. I wanted to read her personal stories and hear about her life from the only view that really matters, her own.
I enjoyed quite a few of Lea's stories. She shared quite a bit about her childhood and her rise to fame on the Broadway scene. I also liked reading about her experiences on Glee and what a typical day on the set was like for her and the other actors. I also liked hearing about her personal life in Los Angeles. Lea appears to be an extremely private person with a low-key lifestyle. I think I would get along with her really well, seeing that she prefers to have a low key night at home over a wild night at the club.
The only part of the book I wasn't a huge fan of were the sections where she shared recipes. Lea shared recipes for her daily meals, face masks, etc and I just wasn't looking for that in this book. I wanted to read more about her; not what she eats!
Overall, I would say if you are a huge fan of Lea Michele this is a great book to read. If you are just somewhat a fan I would still read it but I don't think it's worth the money of actually purchasing it. If you aren't a fan of Lea Michele, I wouldn't read this because it really is mostly about her.
Have you read any books you weren't 100% sold on lately?
