In no particular order...
Best book in a while: Kings of Cool (prequel to Savages) by (gotta look it up) Don Winslow was fantastic. (So was Savages.)
TV that was new to me and that I enjoyed:
House of Cards (y'all were right!)
Orange is the New Black
Oh, and some songs that came out of somewhere or other to really work for me this summer:
The Lightning Strike (What if this Storm Ends) - Snow Patrol
What I Wouldn't Do - Serena Ryder
I Love It - Icona Pop
Old Skin - Ólafur Arnalds & Arnor Dan
To Love Somebody - Roberta Flack.
And some song I heard this morning that was ... Of Monsters and Men that I have to go find now that I've just remembered it.
D'oh. I've just realized this is the kind of post I should have kept for when I get back from B.M. Random and neutral and not really to do with anything.
Oh well, next time!
