Way back last May, Lea Michele (Rachel) shared a flurry of behind the scenes photos from the cover shoot for her literary debut: a part-memoir, part-advice book titled, “Brunette Ambition.”

The book will be released on May 5, 2014, and the final book cover is locked and ready to go. On February 3, Lea took to Twitter to give fans a first look. “My #BrunetteAmbition book cover! I love it so much! Pre-order the book here: http://www.bit.ly/LeaBook,” she tweeted.

Lea Michele is one of the hardest working performers in show business,” the book’s website reads,” and 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.”

Lea landed her book deal last May, before her boyfriend Cory Monteith (Finn) passed away unexpectedly that July. So yeah, we’d say she knows a thing or two about facing challenges. “A practical and inspirational guide to harnessing tenacity and passion, Brunette Ambition is about living the fullest life, no matter what obstacles life puts in your way.”

Lea’s always been strong, but she’s gone through her recent trials and emerged stronger than ever. Her music career is taking off and she’s still Glee’s brightest star. If she’s writing a book about life advice... we’re more than ready to hear some of her tips!
