15 Summer Books to Read in 2021

There is nothing I love more than a good beach read (even if I’m not actually on the beach!). I’ve made a concerted effort to read more in this past year — after my kids go to bed, I love to curl up with a book… it’s a good way to keep me from mindlessly scrolling on my phone and I really love the temporary escape from reality!

I rounded up a list that I plan to conquer this spring and summer (along with a couple that I have already read (and recommend)).

Alisa Sleep
Alisa was born and raised in Iowa before attending Arizona State University. She then lived in Chicago, Georgia and Florida before settling in Madison. From her nomadic lifestyle grew a love for the beach, as well as a fondness for spicy food, sushi, white wine, southern charm, Diamondbacks baseball and idyllic ocean sunsets. Alisa and her husband, Joe, are parents to Ava Mae (August 2012) and twins, Nora & Jacob (March 2014). Alisa is a work-from-home mompreneur with a passion for business, fashion, fitness, community and all things mom. When she’s not enjoying time at home with her family, you can find her sweating it out on the tennis court, training for the next big race, pinning her heart out on Pinterest and exploring Madison with her little ones (and sweet Boston Terrier, Peaches) in tow.
