Surprise Me

So life got crazy busy all of a sudden and I've got about two seconds to answer today's Road Trip Wednesday question:

What's been your most surprising read of the year so far---the book you weren't sure about going in that really swept you off your feet?
So, I read a lot. And I have a terrible memory. Which means I don't remember what I read last year let alone last month (hence, my list). And even if I do think, oh yeah, I read that, I rarely remember what happened. Sad. But true. (Hence, rereading.)

There's a lot of books though that surprise me. Most of the time, I pick up books either because their cover is pretty and the premise sounds interesting, or I've heard other people blog/gush/tweet etc about them. Sometimes, I don't even know what a book is about, I've just heard it's good. Usually, I'm not disappointed. That being said, there are a few that really surprised me. (And because I barely remember what they're about let alone why I loved them, this is just gonna be in list format with no explanations, sorry.)
