Just another GR refugee. Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.
The best read this month was a re-read: Strong Poison, by Dorothy Sayers. (One of my friends here posted it was her birthday, so a re-read of an old favorite felt appropriate.)
I discovered a new (to me) series, the Armand Gamache mysteries by Louise Penny, all set in the village of Three Pines, in Quebec, Canada. The first was Still Life, but I also enjoyed the next two, A Fatal Grace and The Cruelest Month. I would suggest reading the series, which I recommend, in order.
I also discovered a historical novel with a Roman setting, Cleopatra's Daughter, which I enjoyed, and if I had been a teenager would probably have loved (it slants a bit YA, probably due to its narrator, who is 10-15).
The Boleyn King was the disappointment of the month, despite my giving it three stars. It is sold as "alternative history" focusing on Anne Boleyn having a son, and surviving Henry VIII. The reality of it was Tudor historical romance, with a "heroine," Minuette, with distinct Mary Sue tendencies, and a luuuuuv triangle waiting in the wings. It was OK, but it was a total waste of a great fictional opportunity. (I will not be reading the subsequent volumes of the trilogy, as I understand that the love triangle storyline is to the fore. I hate love triangles.)
