Lea Michele Lands Book Deal for Memoir 'Brunette Ambition'!

Lea Michele Lands Book Deal for Memoir 'Brunette Ambition'!

Lea Michele has just landed a book deal with Harmony Books imprint of Random House’s Crown Publishing Group for her memoir “Brunette Ambition,” which is due to hit bookstores next Spring!

“There wasn’t a guidebook when I was growing up, that detailed everything I would need to do, and know, to get where I am today. But I believe I can write one of sorts: not a how-to-make-it-in-show-business book, but a guide to harnessing tenacity, passion, enthusiasm, and hard work to make your dreams come true,” the 26-year-old Glee actress said in a statement (via the New York Times).

The book will be “part memoir, part how-to and part style-guide” which chronicles Lea‘s life “from normal Bronx-born schoolgirl to Broadway child star to lead actress in one of the most popular shows on television.”

ARE YOU EXCITED to read Lea Michele’s upcoming book “Brunette Ambition”??

    So excited for her. She was on Broadway at a very young age. Let’s see what she has to say. :)

  • sorry Lea

  • Alexa

    I admire her! I’m so glad she decided to share her experiences with us.

  • Kelly

    2014 will be a great year for Lea fans. She has an album, a film, and a book coming up. Great deals. Hope to see more.

  • Jenna

    She has more than enough fans to sell her book. It doesn’t matter what the book is about, she will get her name out there. Most of celebs can’t. Clever actress, clever team.

  • Ali.

    I agree, she’s clever, so is her team. Let’s see how the marketing will be for her album. She’s working with the big names in the biz.

  • Joe

    I heard a rumor Lea Michele has a offshore account to avoid paying as much taxes as possibly and she isn’t the only Celebrity to have a offshore account either. Celebrities don’t want to pay taxes.

  • Jenna


    She won’t do Britney Spears kinda pop. More like Kelly so she can pull it off.

  • Jenna

    Sony Music will be marketing her album very good. They already gave her the biggest names. The girl’s voice is already good, she has a huge fanbase, thanks to Gleeks and old Broadway geeks. And they gave her great song-writers. Sia, Bonnie, Anne Preven etc.

  • YM

    Didn’t know Sia was writing songs for her album. Lol I’m sure that will be great. Not sure if she can do pop tho.

  • Lady

    So excited! Can’t wait to read it!

  • excited

  • tm

  • Alice

    Ridiculous! She’s 26! Memoir. Ha.

  • Lol


    She’s been working for 18 years. She has more things to say, idiot.

  • Sara

    There were plenty of very well written “guidebooks” for hard working and ambitious women years ago, and there still are today. Maybe she meant there was no guidebook written by superficial wanabees like she is. But I forget she’s probably not even going to be the one writing it in the first place.

  • kami

    who comes up with the stupid idea for a tv personality to write a book? oh, well that’s good news for some ghost writer who will do the actual writing.

  • Ryan

    WTF???? The world already has to put up with her annoying twitter. Now a book?? God save the world

  • Ummm

    Hell NOOOO!!!!

  • Julia

    Looks like the acting jobs outside of Glee is not coming huh? She knows she will be irrelevant soon, so she needs to grab all the money she can from her Gleeks fans before the show sinks any lower. LOL
    What’s next? a video of how to get rid of drugs in three weeks from Cory?.

  • N
