May Wrap Up!

Hi everyone!

Today I am here with my surprisingly successful wrap up! I ended up reading 4 full books and half of another one!
At the beginning of the month I read 2 books, then fell into a reading slump until the last week of May!

My initial reading goal was to read my ARCs and I read 2.5 of them! YAY!

The first book I read was Red Scarf Girl by Ji-li Jiang! I read this for my english class, and I enjoyed it! Let me know if you guys would want to see a book review for it!


The next book I read this month was It’s Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini! I have a book review here, if you want to know my thoughts!


The first ARC I read was Galgorithm by Aaron Karo! I LOVED THIS BOOK! Review will be coming very soon!


I then read this ARC entitled Three Day Summer by Sarvenaz Tash. I liked this book, and a review will be coming very soon as well!

Then I finished 200/400 pages of Kissing in America by Margo Rabb. At this point, I don’t really know how I feel about it. I will definitely be finishing this one in the next few days, and doing an honest review soon.

Those were all of the books I read in May!

Alyssa’s Life: My Birthday!

Hi everyone!

As most of you know, yesterday was my birthday! Many of you wanted to see another Alyssa’s Life post, so I thought that it would be fun to make one for my birthday!

When I arrived at school, I found this on my locker…!


My friends decorated my locker for my birthday, and it was so cute! And yes… I’m only 13!

After school, I went over to starbucks to redeem my birthday reward! My favourite drink from starbucks is the “Cotton Candy” frappuccino, so I treated myself to a large one!

My parents and I than went over to my Aunts house to pick up my birthday gift! She, my uncle and cousins generously bought me a Kate Spade clutch, and inside they put in a $25 Indigo Giftcard, and a $15 starbucks card! My 2 favourite things!

At around 6:00, we went to The Pickle Barrel, and I had a Corn-Beef Sandwich with Yukon Gold Fries! I always get that there!
