Perfect way to keep me organized 5/5
Love this app to keep a record of what I read and find new books I would love.

Helps me Document my Brain Food 5/5
I use Goodreads to document what I’ve been feeding my brain. It helps to go back and ponder what I’ve read to recall what I learned from those books. The email updates have helped me keep up with authors I like.
Private notes 3/5
By Silver tongue34
I want a pop up menu to open when I change a book to “read” similar to the desktop version. And I’d also like a way to make private notes when I do, like the desktop version.
Not so great 2/5
By Dale Rodgers
3/16 got a email from Goodreads ..the sorry routine. Recommended I contact them. I have already contacted them 2x already to no avail.
I’ve had 1 1/2 years of books just disappear between logins and Goodreads did nothing to help restore them. And other reviews werewiped out. I don’t use Facebook. I use apple products. Which they don’t really support. What bothers me most is certain people always get their reviews as leads and they aren’t necessarily the best reviews. And that doesn’t allow for variety or for multiple opinions. It’s stilted. And there are so many little followers. Reminds me of beartown where there’s a gang mentality instead of denying rape you instead tell people what you want them to read.
There news letter is filled with inappropriate ads that are pro trump and when I asked about them they didn’t care. Look the other way. That Goodreads.
Loved it!!! 5/5
Another great story from Abbie Zanders!!! We catch up with Kayla and Spencer from Pine Ridge. They have grown up since we last saw them. You will be delightfully surprised at these characters and hopefully like heir story as much as I did.
Love it, but could be better 3/5
Would love it more with these features:
• Easy button on every book to indicate that I own a copy and an automatic My Library shelf. (Make individual books or whole list public or private)
• Simple to mark books i have lent to others and who has them and when lent
• Simple way to mark a book I borrowed from another person or library and when borrowed/due
• Ability to had private notes about a book
Clunky App 3/5
Goodreads is a great website but the app is so clunky! In order to place books on different shelves I have to click at least 3 times to new pages and it always refreshes the original page with the list of books. Then I have to start at the top of the list and scroll forever to find my place again. Repeat that process for every book you want to organize. So frustrating!!
I got used to this app however I can’t leave a review and I want to let authors know how I grade their book. It keeps saying the review part is unavailable. This has been going on for about 3 months now
Is it me or is it the book... 5/5
By declan grace
Goodreads comments is a tool to help me to decide whether or not I want to continue with a boring difficult book. Goodreads makes me feel like I am part of a huge book club.
I like Goodreads, but.... 4/5
I noticed with the last three books I’ve posted, the start-and-end dates for when I read them don’t immediately show up in the app anymore like with the previous books. It’s a minor issue, I know, but I’d still like to let people know when I read the books without them feeling like they have to dig deep into the app to discover when I read it...if they’re ever inclined to be so curious. Most books I did read recently, so I don’t want to give visitors the impression that a review might be ancient history, nor should they have to hunt for start-and-end dates, maybe not knowing where to find that info. Otherwise, I have precious little to complain about. Nice app.

Love the app, but whenever I try to remove a book from a list of mine, the app crashes and it doesn’t remove it.
By flute music
I read this book recently and was very excited because I previously had visited Busan, South Korea that where the main character is from and the book begins. She eventually moves to Japan and the book covers, in depth, the intense hatred between the Koreans and the Japanese. There was much to learn about pachinko parlors, which I had never heard of before. My issue with the book was that it was too long (496 pages) and involved four generations of the family and I basically lost interest the farther into the book I read.
Discover New Authors 5/5
Since joining Goodreads I have been introduced to some exciting new authors. They have challenged me to expand beyond the popular top writers and try out new and not so new less known talent. It is my resource for choosing new reading material.
Nice app 4/5
A great book blog, with thousands of reviews that helps you how to pick your next purchase.
Excellent app 5/5
Perfect way to keep track of what you've read, and more ! Is there any way to print out a list of my books from the iTunes app?
Very helpful 5/5
Makes book finding a breeze!
Innovative & Helpful 5/5
This app is a wonderful way to find new books, set reading goals, review books, and find a community of fellow readers. I like the layout of this app, very user friendly.
Best book app 5/5
I absolutely love this app. I started my account in 2013 and I use this app actively.
I love tracking the books I’ve read and the yearly reading challenge. That motivates me to read my goal when I’m in a reading slump.
I would recommend this app to anyone who has a passion of reading
This is truly a phenomenal app. Not only are you able to track your progress but you can find your next love.
Great app 5/5
Helps me to remember what I have and also me to see what others loved-likes to read
5 stars 5/5
Awesome app if you love reading & keeping up with friends who love reading as much as you
My Personal Bookshelf 5/5
By Here’s the skinny:
Goodreads had been a part of my life for 8 years now. It’s like having your own virtual library. I manage all my “reads” in different shelves; Want To Read, Read, Favorites etc. I use this app on all my devices. When I need to search a book or author, it’s the 1st place I turn to. I use it as a memory hack and add books I’m interested in or are recommended so I can refer to the list when I want to purchase a book. There’s a personal, annual book challenge/goals you can set for yourself. I follow friends and family to see what’s on their reading list. I’ve been fortunate to receive a new authors’ book in the giveaways they offer. Did I mention the many book clubs you can join -or create your own? Or the best Read genres list? Yeah, even the reviews are informative and interactive. Use this app. It not only works flawlessly, It’s the best source to gather and store all your book baggage ... because there just isn’t enough books in your life🤓.
Really Enjoy! 5/5
By Red,white and blue
My friend persuaded me to get this app and I really love it, especially for the book recommendations and the “want to read” shelf since I have trouble finding books! I only wish my school would use this!
I wish the quotes would stay on the screen longer her as he app opens. I often only get the chance to read about half the quote before it disappears. Or is there a way to go find them in the app?
Great reads ! 5/5
By Lori J's
Great selection of books to read.
Great Readers Resource 5/5
I love GoodReads. I use it often to research books as well as authors. I also post my reviews there. I use Goodreads usually at least once a day.
I d be worried that my library is going to fall on me, but it s only 2 Kindles. 5/5
Where else can you get books to read that allows you to download a free sample to see if you want to get it.
Refreshing issue 2/5
I love this app, BUT my only issue is when I’m searching my saved lists for a book to read and I click on a book to read the description and then press the back arrow to go back to my list...the list I was on refreshes and I have to scroll all the way back down to where I was. It used to hold my place and I could easily check out many books quickly. Please fix this glitch and my rating will go back to 5 stars!
Feel Good Social 5/5
By Distant Admirer
it’s my new favorite social platform. only positive vibes
I find this app very trying:( 2/5
By Zari Reede
This is not a very user friendly, interactive app. I love books and people who love books, but it isn’t engaging with others like Twitter or Litsy. I use it, but not drawn to use it often.
Great app 5/5
Love this app
By Bands sneakers Jdjfnfmf
It’s a little confusing to navigate. Could be better designed. And I hate being pestered to review an app every time I use it. So here’s your review 🙄
Doesn’t disappoint as a sequel 5/5
As engaging as the first book in the series!
Lots of room for Simple improvements 3/5
The general idea of this app is great. You can keep track of every book you’ve ever read, want to read or are currently reading. Set a reading challenge for the year. Review books. See what your friends are and join/start a reading group.
However, the book browsing section is weak and activity feed is weaker. For example, i like cookbooks yet i have no way of removing a cookbook that i find completely disgusting from my news feed. Been there for months.
I commented on a book review 1 year ago. I get notifications every time someone else comments. This happens frequently. I can not remove my notifications for a post. I may never comment again due to this.
I connected my Facebook so it could automatically add my friends. I have about 8 friends who created accounts and never log in so they haven’t even seen my request. Now I’m “following” them and i cannot unfollow or delete the request lol. Therefore I’m literally following non readers and can’t do anything about it.
Would also be nice to be able to give 1/2 stars.
Love it! 5/5
Helps me find books I want to read and keep track of them!
Love this app! It could take a new direction! 4/5
I have been using Goodreads for a while and absolutely love the app. However, as social media and the use of technology advances, Goodreads has remained the same.
I would like to see Goodreads take a social media approach where you can share your reads with others, not just those who are limited to the Goodreads app.
I’d also love to see a type of “feed” where users could post their current reads in different ways, like posting a photo. This app has so much potential and could definitely be maximized when taking a social media approach.
Great mafia love story 5/5
What a great action filled, heartbreaking, loving book. It has emotions going up and down.
But what an awesome end for Luca and Fallon.
Great app but needs some work 4/5
I love Goodreads, but unfortunately I have to log in through Safari rather than using the app. I am part of a group and there are a couple of things that really bug me. First, when people mark in their review, I can’t read them in the app. If I’ve read the book I want to read their entire review including spoilers, but I can’t from the app. Second if I can’t respond to someone’s review or group comments. On Safari I can respond but not on the app. There are other differences but these are the two that bug me the most. Before I became part of a group I would have given five stars, which is why I give four now. Still love the app but wish I could respond the way I want to my group reads.
Great idea. Lacks creativity/design. 2/5
By Dee greene
The app is okay but has the potential to be great if the right amount of effort, focus, and creativity were dedicated towards it.
I would love to have more information available for groups so you don’t have to access it on desktop.
Also, it would be cool to see the books on actual shelves. The user experience and the overall design could be way better.
I like the idea of Goodreads, but to me it seems like not much creativity is going into it. Just becomes its books doesn’t mean it needs to be boring and dull.
I’m will to help if ever possible. Reading is very key to success. But we need a platform people actually want to use and interact with!
Easy to use 5/5
I like that it’s easy to navigate and also connects with Amazon.
Please fix! 3/5
Normally I would give this 5 stars, but recently I noticed that my book count for all of my shelves is zero, but when I click on them, it shows all of my books. Please fix this, and I will give you five stars!
Books read disappeared 2/5
Since the update all the books I've read are not listed. It shows a total of 0. But when you click on the bookshelf it shows maybe 10 books. When in reality that should be hundreds of books. This is a complete disappointment. Good reads is how I keep track of books I've read, books I want to read and books to be released.
Are you kidding me 1/5
Ever since the latest update, all my shelves are showing 0 as the number of books on them. This is ridiculous. This app gets worse with every update.
Ok, but used to be lots better 3/5
The current version no longer lists the books one is reading is a traditional list, i.e. from top to bottom, but insists on showing only 2 or 3 as though they were banner ads, and wasting most of the screen. That horizontal strip only contains 4 books, and they are not the books in which you’ve most recently updated progress. Tapping the Show All text in that strip sends you to a screen listing (all) books being read, but that list can be sorted by any criterion except Recent. There is an odd criterion called Position, but Position of books cannot be arranged in the app, only on the website. Thus, this redesigned version of the app is quite painful for those who like to read more than 4 books at a time, or put a book aside for a time and then return to it.
Broke my profile 1/5
One if the most recent updates broke my profile, or at the very least corrupted it. When I click on my profile it says only one book however, when I click further it says 67 which is the actual count. My "read" shelf was deleted even though the books display on my profile as being read. Screw you guys!
Great app 5/5
This is my go to app to keep track of the books I’ve read and the books I’ll be reading. Because of the challenges, goodreads always keeps me motivated to read more.
Get the low down! 5/5
Honest reviews, great forums, get to talk with authors, and fabulous opportunities for free books...what’s not to like!
PLEASE FIX YOUR BUGS!!! 3/5
Goodreads, this is such a wonderful app, but your bugs are absolutely killing me. Time to time the app moves by books for “read” back to “want to read” and it tedious to keep manually moving them back. From reading online reviews this has been going on for years. PLEASE FIX IT FOR YOUR DEVOTED USERS.
Why won’t this update? 5/5
For some reason this app does not show my updated reading info. I log in my progress and nothing happens. Went from page 20 on a book to 64 and on my app nothing moved or changed. Has been happening a lot over the past few months. Very upsetting. Why have the app if things don’t work?
