Greatt read so far !!!!
5 STARS 5/5
I’ve read all of the books in the Black Rose Mystery Series and this is my favorite so far! Starts out immediately with action and an undeniable chemistry between Roxy and the swoon-worthy fire chief, Weston Cage. Couldn’t put it down! Ms. McKinney’s books really draw you in from the first page and are so entertaining from beginning to end. I highly recommend this fast-moving, steamy romantic suspense book! Can’t wait for the next in the series!
Amazing and Helpful! 5/5
I would recommend this app to ANY book lover.
Rest And Be Thankful! 4/5
Very good! Different & interesting Two leading characters, both females. Very good friends, entirely fascinating! A must read !! I really enjoyed a slightly different story than just a normal love story !
I like goodreads
Home screen is not loading 5/5
I love Goodreads, but my home screen is not loading. It is really annoying because now I don’t get updates from my friends or book recommendations! Please fix!!!
This the third book in Paul Lynch’s accounting of the famine/genocide in 19th century Ireland. All 3 are sad but amazing tales of what it was like for a whole country to starve to death.
Grace is a 12 year old girl forced by her mother to cut her hair, don boy’s clothing and go out into the world. It is very hard life and Lynch’s prose is an almost poetic description of poverty and despair. And there were times I had to reread a line to determine the full meaning, so intense and laden with meaning is every word and paragraph.
The irony of the story is that even though it’s a “happy ending” it would be hard to see it that way given the previous chapters of her struggle just to stay alive. Relief maybe. Not happy.
Awful app 1/5
I just started using this and the experience has been bad. Integration to Amazon for logging in rarely works and requires me to re-log in every time I open the app. Trying to find out how to input when a book was completed is virtually impossible. I had to go to the web site to do that. In the process somehow it decided I had read one book twice. Today I started receiving progress emails, indicated to be daily. I clicked through to change that and of course the Amazon login integration failed. So, I tried to find the setting to change in profile and settings on the app - no dice. Also, every time I hit the back button on one section of settings it goes out to the main profile page.
Good app for book worms 5/5
By Slow white dude
If you're a bookworm this app is for you. Allows you to enter your books easily and gives recommendations based on the books you've read and your ratings.
Needed Features... 3/5
By Nola Clare
• Ability to recommend books to friends in-app (not via text, email, etc).
• Ability to undo a friend request.
Love it! 4/5
The list of great new books I want to read is ever-growing and I just can’t keep track of them all...so I let Goodreads do it for me! And I appreciate seeing what others are reading and expanding my interests.
Sometimes we find that the book we’re reading isn’t what we expected. I would love to see the app have an option for marking a book as “abandoned,” so that I can see that I’ve tried it but it won’t count toward my reading challenge when I mark it as “finished.”
Please Update for iPhone X! 5/5
This app has seriously helped me become an avid reader. Good Reads best features are as follows:
1. Updating Progress
This feature alone helped me read more as I loved seeing my percentage increase. It’s also a good way to track how long it takes one to read a certain book.
Seeing your friends Reading Challenges, etc is also a fun way to compete with each other. It also make it an easy way for your friends to share any books they might find interesting.
3. Reading Algorithm
Good Reads has a list of all the books it feels the user would like which is really helpful. It makes reading less of a task and more of an adventure.
Please update the app to accommodate the iPhone X screen. As of now, using Goodreads is a clunky experience. Refreshing the design would be great!
-GoodReads has been updated with support for iPhone X!! Easily a 5 star app
Love GR in general but the app...not so much 3/5
My issues with the app
- I don’t like the look of it (especially the My Books page). It is too busy. Sometimes less is more. The iphone app looks better (but it may be that I haven’t updated the phone app in awhile)
- The recommendations are useless. I read more than 100 books a year in the same genre but most of the books I’m shown don’t relate to my tastes
- Why can can you post on Amazon and GR through Kindle but not post on Amazon directly through GR?
There are some issues but they are minor. Otherwise I like the app. I will return rating to 5 stars if the first 2 issues above are fixed.
Lots if bugs in app 1/5
I can't easily see my to read or read books. It also takes a very long time to load the reading page and sometimes it will give error sign to tap to reload. I like having a central place tp keep track of books but it’s more of a hassle.
Great site/app 5/5
Goodreads is great. Here I can join book clubs. I can see what the reviews are on books that family and friends recommend. It also gives various options to see where I can buy books (Amazon, Barnes & Nobles, etc). Most of all I can see what the book is about.
Love Goodreads, like this app 4/5
I've thoroughly enjoyed using goodreads -- it's changed the way I read and find books. But I really wish this app had an easier way to search Listopia. I currently use this app only to log books, because finding new books is so much easier on the online interface. Would suggest some changes to make this app more accessible.
First Place 5/5
Love the website. App is highly convenient. I always use this app first when it comes to looking up books, and reviews. Only place I’ve found where it’s easy to figure out which book came first and then some. They have all series in order of what the author intended. Never knew how much I liked that until I looked for it in other sites. Obviously they fell short.
All in all, wonderful app, and wonderful website.
Some fixes 4/5
I love visiting the app on a regular basis however, i feel that there are some things that need to be fixed to make it better. The two that come to mind are the inability to rate with 1/2 stars and how listopia lists are inaccessible unless you’re on the website.
Good Wishlist, Bad Recommendations 3/5
Things I love about this app: keeping track of my book wishlist, seeing reviews and ratings (especially my friends’ reviews), and the reading challenge. But the biggest stumbling block is the book recommendation algorithm. Why has this not been improved after years of this app being around? I just pulled up “Contemporary” Fiction and I swear it recommended a book from 18 years ago. I don’t understand why it can’t pull highly rated or trending books from people who liked the same books I did. If only this was better, this app would be the definitive app for reading!
Excellent customer service 5/5
I love keeping track of my books on my “ virtual shelf”. I also love to check Good Reads for recommendations for my next book. So you can imagine how sad I was when somehow I accidentally deleted my account and created a new account. ( I’m sure this was my error not Goodread’s fault). I wrote an email and less than 24 hours Monique G. “Goodreads expert” had personally responded to me, asking me specific questions and then sent a follow up email to let me know she was able to merge my two accounts and fix my problem. It’s the little things in life that make you happy and I’m so glad that Goodreads is the kind of company that cares! Her email was also helpful with links to reset my pass word and she was really friendly!
Thank you Goodreads and thank you Monique for resolving my issue!!
I couldn’t even sign, out of all the book apps I tried today I had a lot of hope for this one. I love reading so please see if you can fix this glitch please.
Adding books 4/5
I didn’t kne you could add books to the database, and a representative send me an email with the explanation. Good service. Thanks.
Used to love the app, but now ... Issue resolved! 5/5
By Unhappy N&O Subscriber
*Update 2* Hey, thanks! I can now see all of the books in my collection that match my search criteria! Now, once again, I can easily see whether I own or have read a particular Patterson, Grisham, or Sandford book. Thanks for listening and responding to user feedback. A 5⭐️ rating once again!
Why do developers feel like they have to "improve" their app, only to delete the features that users actually use? I *used* to be able to search my collection for books that I own by a particular author. Now, the app uselessly gives me only 3 or 4 titles. What good is that? I can't use the app anymore with this new limitation. Thanks.
*Update*: Thanks for your response to my comment. I had seen the See All Results option, but since it was below the list of "similar" books not in my collection rather than immediately under the list from my collection, I did not realize it related to my own books.
Also, on my iPhone 6 (still happily running iOS 10.3.2), which is where I would be using the app, the See All Results option is inaccessible behind the bottom menu bar. I can scroll it up, but I can't easily select it before it scrolls back down and disappears again. Actually, I did manage to be quick enough once. But the books appear to be displayed in reverse chronological order based on when they were added to my collection. I am usually looking to see if I own or have read a particular title, so it would be helpful to be able to sort them by title, but I don't see a way to change the sort criteria.
I've added a couple of stars to my review because I want to like the app and, in fact, did at one time love the app, but its usefulness to me now is somewhat limited.
Fun way to get back to reading! 5/5
Really enjoy interacting with this app. It’s a nice way to reinvigorate ones interest in reading. Particularly like the ability to social network and see other people’s recommendations.
The Romanov Sisters 5/5
This is an historical biography about the four daughters of Tzar Nicholas II and Tzarina Alexandra. The book is fastidiously researched, beautifully written and a wonderful read. You are with this doomed family from start to finish. If you are interested in Russian history this book must be on your reading list. Likewise for lovers of biography. Wish I could give it ten stars!
Good companion app 4/5
This is an excellent companion to your book reading apps. I just wish that they had iBook integration.
Really great app 4/5
By Allison_S 95
I have all my books right there, the ones I want to read and have. I feel like sometimes there’s this mob mentality when it comes to rating books, people will rate good/bad based on what the average rating is. I came across a homophobic comment on a book that featured lesbians (I reported it) but there should be someone monitoring the comments.
Can authors stop rating their own books? It skews the rating system upward. They wrote it, obviously they’re going to give it five stars.
Lovely app; recommendations are lacking. 4/5
Great app, but needs a much better recommendation engine/features.
Useful, wish there was an “Up Next” feature 4/5
I’m new to this app but liking it so far! It’s great to see reviews of books before buying them and to check out what my friends are reading. I also like the page tracker & the reading challenges—they keep me motivated! I do notice a couple little glitches with marking things as read and applying the dates, but I’ve been able to overcome those.
One feature I wish existed was the ability to sort books in the “Want to Read” shelf in the order you plan to read them. I would love to be able to show my friends “here’s what I want to read, and this is what I am going to read next.” Or even, jus a feature to flag a book as “Up Next”.
Great for finding new books! 5/5
I love this app! A friend told me about this app and I will be forever grateful.
BUT you need some sort of auto-save capability when writing a review in the goodreads app!!!!
I was writing a LENGTHY review on a book that I had just completed. I exit the app for a second to go to my dictionary app to make sure I’m using the best word to communicate my thoughts and came back to the app... it honestly couldn’t have been more than just 30 seconds and the entire app refreshed and I was back on the home screen. So frustrated.. 😒😔
Also, is there a way when you get book recommendations that you can group the average star rating from greatest to least? That would be cool to show the highest rated books first
Logged out constantly 3/5
Love the concept of goodreads, and have been a member for the past year. However, lately when I go to click on my friends, or anywhere off of a main page really, the app logs me out and makes me log in. I’ve deleted and redownloaded the app twice now and it continues to do this. I’m not sure if this is just a bug but if there could be a solution to this that would be great.
I wish i knew of it sooner 5/5
By Yeah par
If you’re a book reader, or wanting to read more books but can’t ever decide what to read; this is the app for you.
Otherwise perfect 4/5
Can’t add my books read to my reading challenge list.
Have problems using it on a iPhone
By Raffaella Ciavatta
Amazing app that makes it easy and enjoyable to share knowledge on books and recommendations!
Even better. 5/5
By Abba butterfly
Goodreads is one of my favorite apps and has always got my back. Thank you Goodreads! That being said, I would love it if you guys added a notification for when the books on our Want to Read lists come out. It would be amazing to be notified when one of the books I want to read is published.
💚💙 a good story 5/5
Keeps me focused on how much I’ve read, and all the great books that come after 😊💚
It is desirable to have a combination lock feature in the next release 5/5
everything is fine,but the lock in the app is indeed needed.
Love, love, love Goodreads! 5/5
Best app ever!! I use it every single day!
This is a good app yes but how do you actually read the books all I can do is put them in the spot that says you are reading them I use this app to make a list of the books I want to read.
Get this app!!! 5/5
This app is really helpful if you are a person who loves books and blows through them like me. This app is really good because it’s very structured. It isn’t all over the place and it’s super easy to look for books or just get some recommendations. Speaking of which, the books they refer are amazing! I’ve read some really good books that I go out to HPB and buy them so I can read them again and again without library trips. It just a nice easy app that I love to use!
Love it but want more 4/5
I wish there was a way to see the reading level of the books, for you to rate how hard the book was for you to read, and a way to gauge your reading level.
I also wish I could move multiple books to and from lists at once.
But overall I absolutely love the app.
Can't believe I'm barely using this 5/5
Getting back into my regular reading habits and this app is perfect for tracking my reading goals!
I’d tell you I love you but 4/5
First I am the person that uses goodreads more than anyone. I read everyday. A lot. But I had to turn off the notifications for good reads because the badge icon would never go away on my home screen. Even after looking at the alert. I see it with other book apps as well. It happens also in the interior of the app. I will check the alerts but it won’t have the badge icon go way. That’s one thing that bugs me. Also after completing selecting a book you have put as “reading” and then setting it as “read” when you go back to your library it will still show that book until you go to a different part of the app and back. Which takes time and is really annoying.
One thing I think could really make this app significant to me is if I had a way to have a place where I can more better organize planning which book to read next out of the books I already have selected. When you open up your reading tab with the books you are currently reading there isn’t a way to prioritize them. Same with the want to read, the read tab is great because it already has a way to organize what you have read by when you have read it. But as a reader working on 50-100 books that are on my book shelf I would love some sort of tool that compares what I have just read to what I might next like to read that is JUST in MY library. Especially as a strategy to finish more books.
I would eventually like to see more color added to the home page with comments as well and have a better design side for when a person of my friends group has written a review for a book that it can be more visible for me to read.
But I want to say again, this is a terrific app. I wouldn’t be writing this much info about it when I rarely rate apps unless I loved it this much.
Love this app. 5/5
I absolutely love this app. I’m a big book reader and this app helped me find so many books I never would have know about otherwise. Just wish I got rate with half stars as well to make it more accurate.
How does it work 3/5
I can’t find out how should I choose to read the book 😳🤔
Better than the site! 5/5
Good app, that’s a good app. Who’s a good app? Yes, you arrre
Quick but satisfying read 4/5
What a quick but satisfying read. Adore is an almost thirty year old virgin. She didn’t plan it but there it is. Her friend talks her into a virgin dating game at her private club.
Kellan is talked into going by his friend too. He’s had a difficult breakup but that was two years ago. He’s thrown himself into his work ever since. Once he sees Adore he knows it was the right choice to be there.
Although I would have liked more of the relationship that developed after their memorable night together, this definitely is a great read.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
I can’t post gifs!! 3/5
I can’t post gifs in the review i matter how much a search how to, it just wont work. It’s annoying..
Great app, quick question 4/5
I really enjoy the Goodreads app. However, I noticed that one of my favorite features, the Explore/Lists page, is missing. Is it coming back or is it gone for good? Thanks!
