Read Any Good Books Lately?

It's been such a busy, crazy summer. My Goodreads reading goal has definately gone by the wayside and I'm horribly behind. I have read a couple of good books this summer but nothing outstanding.

I started reading the Capital Girls series. When I purchased it on I had no idea it was a series and I had no idea it was more YA than Chick Lit. But, I'll read just about anything so it really doesn't matter!

I'm also a HUGE Phillpa Gregory fan and started watching The White Queen series on the Starz network. The mini-series is beautifully filmed and visually stunning. Earlier in the summer I had read The Lady of the Rivers and went on her website to see what else was related to the Cousins Wars. I saw the advert for The White Queen and set the DVR. Jeremy Irons' son, Max, plays King Edward IV and he's quite easy on the eyes.

On my wish list: The Girl you Left Behind, Where'd you Go Bernadette?  A Hundred Summers and Husband's Secret. Any suggestions to add to the list?
