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.
Surprised as in what I got was not what I was expecting? The Magicians. Which was not sold as "Holden Caulfield goes to Hogwarts," but should have been.
Surprised in the sense of shockingly putrid? Farside, a science fiction novel featuring flat characters, date rape, and a side of mansplaining.
