From his early days as a budding amateur vlogger, through to everyone's favorite YouTube superstar, Alfie Deyes' story is the stuff of dreams.

Now, for the very first time, Alfie talks about how it all began...From growing up on the sunny south coast of England, having fun with friends and thinking up pranks, dares, and silly activities throughout the long summer holidays in Brighton, through to recording his first ever vlog at the age of 15, The Scrapbook of My Life is the story of how a young, ambitious kid with a big character took the world by storm. 
But The Scrapbook of My Life isn't a typical autobiography.

With alternate pages for readers to complete, including pages for sticking photographs, completing stats and facts, and collecting souvenirs, The Scrapbook of My Life is the ultimate journal for PointlessBlog fans, old and new!

Rating: 5/5

My Review:

After another big reading slump, I finally read through the whole book yesterday. I really enjoyed it!! Alfie has always been one of my favourite YouTubers ever since I started watching his videos near the end of 2013. He's such a genuine and fun person to watch that it's been amazing to watch his journey and popularity grow.

While his first two books were lots of fun, I love that this book gave you more stories about Alfie and his life growing up, and how he got started with YouTube and lots of memories he had long the way with his books, and the tours and fun things he's gotten up to. I loved reading things and as a viewer, remembering the daily vlogs from those moments!

As always, Alfie's books comes with an app that you download for free and it lets you scan pages throughout the book to offer never before seen videos and pictures. I love how cool and creative that is!!

I'll never stop being a fan of Alfie's! I can't wait to see what he comes up with next, and I'm happy to be there along the way as one of his many viewers.
