Discovering new releases - Guest Post by Julie @ Quiet YA Reads

It's the first official guest post of Learnt it the Hard Way 3!

It's such a struggle to keep up with new releases sometimes. I often feel like I am so out of the loop with regards to new and upcoming releases, and when I see some new releases being mentioned around in social media, all I can say is HOW IN THE WORLD DID I NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS BOOK?

So today we invite Julie, the lovely behind Quiet YA, and a blogger who has an amazing knowledge of upcoming titles, to teach us all a little on the art of discovering new book releases. You can also find her at YA Interrobang, Pique Beyond and might know her as one of the founder of Blogbound Con. And of course, don't forget to follow her on twitter!
