Weekly Highlights: the 'Dreams' edition

Weekly Highlights is a feature borrowed from Faye of A Daydreamer's Thoughts, where I get to highlight my posts of the week, show you my new books and talk about bookish things!

It's been a pretty good week! I started my publishing work experience on Wednesday and although I've only been there two days, I've already learned so much. I'm working with the art director, so I'm helping with layout and images; on Thursday I spent the day making maps of made up islands and space ships! It is so much fun.

Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor - got it delievered straight to my kindle the day of release and although details of the previous book are a bit hazy, the story is wonderful and colourful and so easy to slip back into.

The Vampire Shrink by Lynda Hilburn

Kismet Knight is a young psychologist with a growing clinical practice, and she's always looking for something to give her the edge in her chosen career. When her new client turns out to be a Goth teenager who desperately wants to become a vampire, Kismet is inspired to become the vampire shrink, offering her services to people who believe they are undead. Kismet herself, as a scientist, knows it's hokum, but she's looking at it in a purely psychoanalytic light, already imagining the papers she's going to write on this strange subculture. That's until she meets the leader of a vampire coven, a sexy, mysterious man who claims to be a powerful 800-year-old vampire, and she is pulled into a whirlwind of inexplicable events that start her questioning everything she once believed about the paranormal.

Apart from DoGaM, this is the only book I got this week; on sale in Waterstones and come on, how could I resist a vampire psychologist?
