Currently reading Sea of Rust by C. Robert Cargill. It's a pretty decent post apocalypse, robots rule the world kind of thing. Nicely written, moves along at a good pace and has some interesting ideas. I'd recommend it.

I use good reads but find it's not really suitable for that it it's OK for what I have read/want to read
Not sure about an app, but maybe follow the authors you like on Twitter and set them up in a specific list (Tweetcaster lets you do that but I'm not sure if it's a standard feature of Twitter, I rarely use Twitter to be honest). Maybe there are accounts that solely list new releases as well, not sure.
Reading The Last Smile In Sunder City by Luke Arnold (yes, Long John Silver). Its an absolutely fantastic fantasy novel set in a grimy world where magic abruptly ceased to exist, and the fallout encountered by the mythical beings when it happened. There is a pretty clear allegory re fearing the unknown and sense of identity, but there is also lots of nuance to it and i'm really really enjoying his writing style.
