Welcome to Sunrise Drive!! Sunrise Drive will be my home for writing about life, books, and all my favorite sci-fi worlds....let's face it: mostly Doctor Who. 

Who am I?? 

Well, I am Alyssa! I also blog over at Christian Sugar Addict. When I discovered the world of book blogging, I knew I need to jump in, but it just didn't seem to fit in with my mission for CSA. The basics of my life have been covered before so I will only cover the quickies here to introduce myself.

  • Married for 4 years to my high school sweetheart. We have officially been together for 9 years
  • I joyfully (and accidentally :D ) found out I was pregnant March 2012 and gave birth to Baby Girl October 15th. 
This was a month ago..and don't worry, she's had a haircut since then!!

  • My favorite past times include reading, watching Netflix, catching up on blog reading, playing with Baby Girl, and baking. 
  • Yes, my favorite color IS pink
  • I love coffee, chocolate, and sugar. My three main dietary staples :)
  • I don't read any particular genre exclusively. However, since I have discovered the YA section I have been pretty addicted. I read all the vampire books I could get my hands on as a teen, then I discovered Twilight and it busted open the doors of YA fantasy/sci fi fiction for me. 
  • I want to read more non-fiction, specifically biographies. Most, if not all, my non-fiction right now consists of Christian writing, and is slowly turning into parenting books.

What to expect on Sunrise Avenue:

  1. Reviews of books I read! I may go back to review books I have read previously as well. 
  2. Doctor Who episode recaps. I am rewatching it for the third time, but the for the first time with Hubby watching as well. We are starting Doctor 11 episodes soon!!
  3. Other wonderful TV babble
  4. Once a month I participate in a link up called Twitterature. I am also hoping to jump in on other weekly link ups!
  5. LIFE! Don't think you can get away without oogling my Baby Child a few times a month :)
  6. Other things.

And I love making new bookish friends! Make sure to follow here, find me on Twitter (@am_zech), or my Goodreads page!! 

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Fun fun Alyssa! Can't wait to hear more from you in the book category... maybe you could do a guest review now?? Let me know


  2. That would be spectacular! I will send you an email :)

  3. Hey! I just became a new follower and I noticed you only had five followers. I have a new blog, too, and so I was wondering when you had started this blog because we both seem to be on the journey of getting new blogs started up after having been apart of previous blogs. So I hope I don't come across as a creeper... I was just checking out your origins here on Sunrise Avenue :) What I wanted to mention though is that your daughter was born on the anniversary of me and MY high school sweetheart of five years! I thought it was such a cool coincidence that I wanted to point it out :) Love your blog design by the way! Super colorful and summery.

    1. Hello! That is a big coincidence! lol, I am glad you pointed it out! I started this blog I think on the date this is posted, July 4th 2013!! I have been writing on my other blog, Christian Sugar Addict for 2 years come this August! Whew! A long time!! Thanks so much for following and I will be sure to return the favor!
