I consulted my best friend Google! Haha :) I'd just type into the search bar something like "popular YA books" or "top recommended books in YA". I'd get links to book blogs and such and I'd bookmark them for future recs. Then when I found out about the existence of Goodreads, I was on there everyday. The site is so easy to use although I wouldn't say the same for the phone app :S Click on the button below to add me :)
How did you find out about new books and thanks for coming by!
