If you love books and your friends love books you will all love this app! 5/5
This app has helped me restart my reading habit and I am so so grateful for that ! Plus a higher-than-average portion of my social circle is made up of teen librarians and raging book nerds, and this app is the best way for me to see what they're reading, ask them for recommendations, and share with them what I've been reading, all without having to bother everyone with a Facebook notification :) You want this app, get it!
I really like this app 4/5
The best part of this app is the suggestions pane where you can find good books like the ones you've already read. I also like that you can see others progress which in turn keeps you motivated. I do think the overall look of the app is old fashioned or dull because I use bookout and it's very vibrant and i notice the difference immediately.
It is a great app all in all. 👍🏼
Any reader will LOVE this app 5/5
I use this app regularly. It's become my go-to place to keep all the books my friends and family suggest I read; providing a clean, organized way to scroll through and save various books. It's a fantastic platform for rating and reading reviews as well as finding information about authors. When you look up a book, it lists the author (along with specifics about the book) and then provides other books by that author, other versions/releases of that book, and more. I've recommended this app more times than I can count.
Love the App 5/5
Love not having to leave lists all over the house when I hear or read about a new book I want to read. Love being able to look up information and reviews about books and authors. Love that it helps me deal with my compulsiveness in reading series of books in chronological order.
Good app 4/5
It's a fairly convenient and easy to use app. I love when I'm at the library or a used bookstore, and I can just whip out goodreads if I'm not sure what to look for and see what I've recently added to my tbr list.
The biggest downside for me is the recommendations page. On the desktop I can go through the recs and if there's a book I know I'll never read I can just click "not interested" and it will then clear space for more books I may actually want to try. I don't see that as an option on the mobile version unfortunately.
Hard to Beat 5/5
Simply the best one-stop-shop for clear & concise book reviews.
I don't go anywhere without a book and this app 5/5
An essential tool and excellent way to get recommendations and share insights with fellow bibliophiles.
Good but could be so much more. 2/5
Updated 1/17, Nothing new. There are no "real" new features. I have over 500 books in here are the newsletter still only gives me one recommendation from my shelves and dozens of advertisements for books that do not interest me. Still no author list. Still no integration with my Amazon account. In fact Amazon gives me better recommendations than Goodreads does with only a fraction of the data.
I use this mainly as a catalog to keep track of what I have have read, what I want to read and where things are in the process. The app works well but is missing some important tools.
First and most important it has no author view. Yes you can sort a shelf by author but there is no separate author list where I can rate them and sort them according to my ratings. I also cannot view all of the books by an author across shelves. It does allow you to click an author's name but that gives a list of everything they have very done.
The suggestions are horrible. Goodreads is owned by Amazon but there is no synchronization between them. Amazon constantly gives me notice about new books by authors I have bought from them but Goodreads often misses new books by authors on my shelves.
Great app for book lovers 5/5
I love this app for getting suggestions for books to read, for learning about authors, and for getting recommendations from friends. A favorite feature is keeping is a list of books I've already read as well as ones on my wish list. Great app! I've never had any problems with it. Very well done.
Goodreads, Great App 5/5
Goodreads is the app for the voracious reader or for someone whose trying to read more.
Highly recommend: book lists all in one place 5/5
I am always forgetting what books I really want to read and this is a great place to tag them. When I finally am at the library or bookstore I just have to pull up my list. It also is great when people recommend books. I search them easily and tag those that the synopsis/reliable reviews seem to be interesting.
Well functioning app! 5/5
I enjoy using this app. I have never had a problem with how it functions and I enjoy having access to so many book reviews. It also really helps me focus on finishing books. I usually start them and then give up halfway through. Being able to see what I'm currently reading and how much I have left pushes me to finish.
Love books; love this app 5/5
This app does so much for book lovers it's hard to know where to begin. Help finding great new titles? Check. Like reading groups and discussions? It's there. Want to catalog your library? No problem. Ask authors questions? Yup. Need motivation to read more? Join the challenge. Easy and intuitive to use, I've been on Goodreads for over 3 years and it just keeps getting better.
Functional but uninspired ui 3/5
Would like to see a redesign to cut down on superfluous levels of abstraction and enhance usability
I can't live without this 5/5
I'm so happy to have taken my sisters suggestion to download this app. Not only does it motivate me to read more but helps me to keep track of each of my books.
Really excellent for visiting libraries and bookstores!
Great for avid readers 5/5
I enjoy using GoodReads. I can track what I've read and share titles with friends easily. I can see what they are reading and add to my "Want To Read" list to remind me after I finish a current book. Great way to share recommendations and thoughts of books.
Simply Amazing 5/5
I love this app! It helps me keep up with my favorite authors and books! It also give great suggestions based on books you love! The Goodreads community is my favorite way to keep up with the best reads for my taste and to see what my friends have been reading as well!
Can't go into a bookstore without it! 5/5
This app has been an important part of my reading life for a number of years. I haven't chosen a book without consulting Goodreads ratings for a long time. Easy to use and it's helped me read more meaningful work!
By Gamer Joe 546
This is a great way to library books I've read. I can scan library books and read people's reviews on them and gain some insight on the book. This is a must have for all bookworms 😀
Great App for all book lovers 5/5
This app is easy to use, and a great way to keep all of your books organized. I also like that you can connect it to your e-readers and other book apps. Probably my most used app, aside from Instagram!
Great app! 4/5
This app allows you to share keep track of the books you read as well as rate them and share your opinions of the books. I use it daily.
Great app 5/5
It's awesome for keeping track of my TBR, and even books I scrap - when it happens. It's also great for looking up better summaries when I'm thrift shopping :)
Awesome Sauce!!! 5/5
Awesome way to keep track of what I read, and check out previews and reviews for what I may want to read. I also love how the app recommends books based on what I read.
It's not a very easy site to use.
Good App That Reflects the Site 4/5
By Heetleach IV
Very few apps come this close to being like the website. I love Goodreads because of it's accessibility and versatility, and the app is just as good.
Since the update the app has improved. I like the reading challenge option.
Website is better 2/5
This app is inferior to the website. App is unnecessary.
Goodreads is a wonderful way to keep track of books and to read reviews.
Lovely digital book shelf 5/5
Having Good Reads helps me share book recommendations and get a great idea of what to read next.
It's a really nice way to track progress and keep an inventory of things you've read and your favorite quotes or key learnings. I also love how they encourage people to participate in the yearly reading challenge. This app has made me a better person. Highly recommended!
Thank you, GoodReads.
Great app for readers 5/5
I love this app mostly because it helps me keep track of future books by my favorite authors as well as all the books I have ever read. I also appreciate the monthly emails with reading suggestions and new releases.
Allow Us To Compare Books in the App!!! 3/5
On the Goodreads app on iPhone/iPad please allow to us to be able to compare books with our Goodreads friends. It's frustrating having to open Goodreads in the browser to compare books. Fix it Goodreads! Fix it!
This app & site are good for tracking your reading. I love that they send you end-of-Year summaries.
The features of the app and the website could use some updating and expanding, particularly the managing of shelves.
Integrates somewhat with Kindle now, which is great. (Again, more functionality here in future releases would be great!)
Overall, very solid!
LOVE THIS APP! 5/5
It's such a good app! I recently got into reading again after not reading non-school related books for a few years. It's really good for keeping track of your reading, reviews, and finding new books to read! 10/10 recommend!

As a book lover, I couldn't ask for more.
Great way to find new books 5/5
Nice user interface, the scanning function works perfectly every time, & most importantly, it's a great way to find & keep track of new books to read.
By Book lover121
I am obsessed with this app. It is positively amazing.
Always the first place I look when trying to find my next favorite book! 5/5
I love this app, I've been using it for years and the increase of wonderful books on my shelves is because of it.
An excellent app for book readers 5/5
This app is perfect for book readers. Organizes your books, keeps track of the books you have read, let you know about what your friends are reading, gives you very honest reviews and ratings of the books and gives you an idea of what to read next and keeps you updated with the best books you can fill your time with. Strongly recommend.
Love it 5/5
Its really great when you want to know peoples opinions. Also, theres a lot of recommendations.
Go to the website 2/5
Love the website, hate the app. The app is a waste of time.
Love this app 5/5
I love finding books to read on goodreads and saving books and authors I want to read or love. It is also great to see what my friends are reading or have enjoyed!
It's a good place to see what books others are reading, and get ideas of great books to read.
Great resource 5/5
I love Goodreads to check book ratings. I also like to read reviews of books that I finish and compare a "review" I have in my head with other reviews. It's great to keep a Goodreads list of the books I want to read. This app is helpful to me in so many ways!
Great site for authors and readers! 4/5
The app needs a little bit of polish as I find browser access to be more efficient. I have made support aware of these little "glitches" and believe they will correct them soon.
I live on this app! 5/5
I haven't been on Facebook in over two years. Goodreads IS my Facebook. I could not live without this app.
Perfect for book obsessed humans 5/5
By New Freebie Lover!
I love this app. It helps you keep track of your yearly book reading goals while also writing short notes and reviews of what you liked and didn't like. It's also great for letting friends see what you'd recommend, which has been a good tool for helping me find new books to read. I highly recommend this app for all of your book tracking needs.
Love Goodreads 4/5
Love everything about Goodreads. Now if they could find a way to read my mind and add all the books I consume automatically? Only complaint is iPad versions are not incredibly user-friendly or intuitive.
This app has really given me a lot of ideas for books to read and keeping track of books that I have read.
