Wiring of Circuits in Addition

So, this will be my first time setting up the circuits and wiring them myself in a new 24'x24' addition. Here's what I plan to do, please leave your feedback/insight.

Circuit 1 for entertainment room receptacles. (Total of 9 duplex)

Circuit 2 for two bedrooms receptacles and 3 outside receptacles. (Total of 15 duplex)

Circuit 3 is for Bathroom GFCI by sink. (Total of 2 duplex)

Circuit 4 is for Pump/motor of Jetted tub.

Circuit 5 is for lighting throughout addition and smoke alarms. (16 12w recessed LED, Vanity light with 3 bulbs, 2 fan/light combos, 1 closet light, 1 bath fan/light, 1 patio light, 1 crawl space entrance light in basement, 1 attic entrance light. 4 hardwired smoke alarms.

Circuit 6 is for in line heater for jetted tub if we decide to go that route (Havn't purchased heater yet but we are considering it at this time).

Does this plan for circuits seem logical?

Often lights and smokes go on the same circuit and receptacles a separate circuits. That way you know the smoke circuit is working and win't be left totally in the dark if light or receptacle circuit trip.
