Wonderful way to connect with friends 5/5
I love good reads.
Think And Grow Rich 5/5
Think And Grow Rich is a great book. I recommend listening to Bob Proctor’s YouTube video on this book before you read it. -Isaac Miller (author of, Just Get Up: And Manifest Your Inner Genius)
Needs some work 2/5
I want to love this app, but it’s just OK.
The interface feels outdated and could be formatted differently to look more streamlined.
The biggest issue I have is an inability to organize your read books more than one book at a time. There should be a way to mass select books and add them to a bookshelf instead of slowly having to go to each book page and add it to a shelf. I also don’t care for how the shelves look on your profile page. I think they should look more like the read and want to read shelves, rather than afterthoughts.
Searching for new books can also be a pain. While searching by genre a select number of books load, but there is no perceivable order. If it were by title/author it would at least allow for some measure of organization.
I’ve had a notification of a new friend request for months, but every time I open it (more in an effort to get rid of that notification than check for a friend add) it says there are no friend requests, and the notification remains.
Adding friends or importing through Facebook doesn’t always work.
Whenever the app is opened a quote is displayed as it loads. But the quote is only there for maybe one or two seconds before it disappears, so I wonder what the point of having the quotes is when there isn't enough time to read it. Odd considering the normal load time for this app is much slower than one would expect.
Several pages, such as the FAQ page, are never able to load. So if there are ways to fix or work around the things frustrating me I can’t look for the answers.
It is a nice app that allows you to track your books and see your friend's lists, but it just looks and feels outdated, with a lot of minor issues that build up to an annoyance.
Don’t mean to be a nerd, but Goodreads is the app that can get ANYONE reading a new favorite book! 5/5
When somebody recommended Goodreads to me, I decided to take a look at it, initially thinking I could use it to record books I had read in the past.
BOY, WAS I IN FOR A TREAT!!
Not only does Goodreads offer a great way for keeping track of books read in the past, it also helps to keep track of books you are currently reading, all those books you “just HAVE to get your hands on” and suggestions for your future reads.
Further, by connecting with your friends on the app, they can share suggestions with you and vice-versa.
Topped with a review column for very book, along with celebrities favorite reads, I can’t think of anything else you could ask for from a reading app!
The website is much better. 3/5
The overhead on this app must be huge. I keep it on my phone to connect via other apps. If I really want to use it, I go to the website. If the things that are available on the site are available in this app, they’re too difficult to find or too difficult to get to.
I love this app!
Goodreads lets you express your love and dislikes for books. But you have to be careful some people can be rude with their reviews- if that bothers you avoid the low ratings pretty simple. Other than that it’s AWESOME!
Love goodreads but would love it when I look at a book it’d tell me who of my friends have read it and what they rated it. Please add!!
A must for readers 5/5
I love using this app. I read a lot and there are several great features about the app. I love the reading challenge. I like being able to see what my friends are reading and getting ideas of what to read next based on that. I also like the scan feature to log books. I like that you can see what your favorite authors are reading and recommend. Overall a great app.
No recommendations 3/5
I spent over an hour eating books and it still says there are no recommendations!!!!!
Love Goodreads, the app has some bugs 4/5
I love Goodreads - it is my go to when deciding what to read next and deciding which books to purchase. I’d be lost without it. But the app has some bugs I wish would be fixed - if you add a book as Want to Read and then enter a giveaway that adds it to your Want to Read list (where it is already which is why I was notified of the giveaway), it adds it multiple times. I have a book I just finished reading that is showing in my Read list now and still shows in my Want to Read list. As well as MANY other duplicates. The search function is a little buggy as well. You can enter 90% of a title and it brings up a bunch of other books that don’t even include the searched words.
Happy that giveaways now work in the app!
By Brenda K Hart
Excellent book! Keeps you reading! Didn’t want to put it down.
Almost perfect 4/5
Recently I accidentally logged out my kindle from my Amazon account. 🥺 which logged me out of my apple app, ok no problem. Well now I have a problem. I cannot sync my apple account to my kindle account. 🤬. I’m in the middle of my reading challenge and now to two will not cooperate.
Great way to find new books 5/5
love the site and the app.
GAME CHANGER 5/5
I've been an active Good Reads users for the past 10 years (😱) and faithfully tracked all my reading over the past decade. So needless to say I love the website and App...what prompted me to finally writw a review? The addition of "Add Dates Read"!! As someone who can keep going back to a book to reread over and over again is a GAME CHANGER!! Thanks Goodreads!!
New update doesn’t work 4/5
By (\ /) (.,.) (")(")
Normally I love this app ( usually I’d give it 5 stars), but the new update signs me out when ever click on anything. PLEASE FIX THIS. I know it was meant to fix the bugs, but it just made a far worse one
This App is Amazing! 5/5
This app is my go-to for reading, recommendations and cataloging all of my books! It has been a game changer for my reading! I only wish more of the desktop features were available in the app (all giveaways, groups etc.) but I’m hopeful those are coming soon!
Love the app but... 5/5
Love the app, but recently it’s been logging me out every time I open it. Keeps me logged in for about 5 seconds before kicking me out. I’d love to use this app for more than 5 seconds, please! 😬
So upset!!! 1/5
As I was going to review a book, my app glitched and logged me out completely from the app... this has never happened before and I have had this for so long I can’t remember what my login information is so all my books and reading challenges are gone forever because the app force logged me out mid review!!! I am devastated to say the least, I will never be able to remember all the books I’ve read, I’m so incredibly sad.
Version 3.17 has faults 1/5
Since updating to version 3.17 I’ve been kicked out of the app mid-use many times. I have to sign in constantly. It’s frustrating when reading reviews or finding books.
Prior to this update my rating would have been 5 stars.
Stopped working with the most recent update 1/5
By App user 2012
This has been a great app for years, but now it’s broken. With the latest update, you need to sign in every time you open the app, and then it crashes, so you have to sign in again. Please fix this so that it works again.
Update flaw 1/5
The latest update for the app is making me sign in each time when I try to navigate from the home screen to my book shelves.
Great app but... 3/5
I adore this app. It’s very helpful with keeping track of all the books I read and I’ve even found books I read back in middle school!
My only issue is that since the newest/latest update, I’ve been repeatedly logged out of my account when trying to look into ‘my books’ and even when first opening the app, I’m required to log back into my account as if having been logged out. I’ve even deleted the app off of my phone then downloaded it again but that hasn’t worked. Hopefully this is s temporary issue or this is going to be an irritant.
Crashing now 1/5
when I click “my books” it signs me out.
Awesome app but needs to adapt from the app “BooksWing” 4/5
This app is the leading book app for sure and it needs to continue to be supported! Goodreads needs to take the app “bookswing” and add its features to goodreads and then it will be complete. Developers please do this!
لغة التطبيق 1/5
السيء فالتطبيق هو عدم توفر لغة عربية
Books, books, and more books 5/5
By Misis Mimi
Such a great app for encouraging you to read more books. It’s also fun to see what your friends are reading and what people have to say about all kinds of books.
Edge of your seat thriller... 5/5
As always, this novella had me on the edge of my seat, couldn't wait to continue reading. Falling into Zoe Blake's worlds never fail to grasp, enthrall, and please.
Devin is a sly hacker that has managed to stay off the grid. Until now...and she has garnered the interest of Reid. Devon is number 13 for Reid, and he is completely engrossed in all that she is. Molding her into what he wants her to be, making her his, this book had me sweating from beginning to end! Can't wait to delve into this series and continue!
Wonderful App 5/5
This app is a wonderful tool for any reader. You not only can submit books you’ve ever read, but you can research just about any book you want to read. The fact I can go back to see every thing I’ve read plus the ones I’m currently reading is very valuable to me.
It’s hard to tell what’s good 3/5
The best thing about Goos Reads is that it has good descriptions of books and often, multiple reviews. However, using its star system is not helpful since most every book, be it high art or trash, gains about 4.5 stars. Therefore the stars aren’t meaningful.
5 stars!!! 5/5
Absolutely love this app and wish I had it sooner! As an avid reader, I am able to track my reading, write reviews, and have reading be a social app. I love being able to see what % done I am with my book and how easy the app is to use.
Not quite as good as the first 2/5
Well, I still enjoyed the book. It has that same mix of religion, history, and mystery. I wish that the book had actually discussed some of the adventuring rather than skipping it & there were several times where the Emperor Constantine was mistakenly called Constantinople instead. Still enjoyable and I plan to read the next as well. A good cruise read!
Great app but... 4/5
By Day's until
I love being able to realize how many books I’m reading. But it’s hard to find new books because it won’t let me filter out books already on my shelves. If I could do that then I would give it the full 5 stars.
Really enjoyed this book. The story was captivating!
Bizarre GLITCH: Initiates Siri? 4/5
By Katie Jay
To the Developers: I want to start by saying that I absolutely LOVE this app but wanted to make you aware of the most bizarre glitch.
I have an iPhone 6 Plus and I’ve experienced an odd glitch that can only be resolved by killing the app. It may happen when I re-open the app while its still running (the cause is unclear) but sometimes, when I go to use the Search function, it doesn’t bring up the keyboard and, instead, plays the first Siri tone (as if “she” is listening but doesn’t actually go to the Siri black screen) and then plays the “end” tone eventually. If I try to switch tabs (e.g., from Search to Bookshelf) it initiates Siri again and, as I mentioned, I ultimately have to kill the app so it can function normally.
Again, I love this app and use it multiple times per day. This is the only time I have ever had issues. Thank you for sharing this with the world! :)
By Utbcsrbnjh vss
Love that I can scan books from any place. I love having a place to keep lists of books I want to read all in one place Wonderful app for anyone who loves to read 💕💕
Gamble men don’t play around! 5/5
I loved this sequel to The Hookup. Just when you thought Johnny was the bomb!...Toby comes along to make Matlock, the Forrester girls and...life, just that much better. What happens when sisters fall in love with brothers? All kinds of goodness that will make you laugh, cry, smile, cringe and maybe roll an eye or two. Ultimately Addie got all she ever needed. That’s what mattered.
So Interesting! 5/5
I am in here a lot because here I can find what I want to read next. And it’s also my source of quality entertainment. Making and reading reviews on here is so fun. Highly recommended. I am a passionate reader.
The thing about this is that the reviews provide a lot of insight into books and that the reviewer them self has a way with words and making the experience of the book sound so well. Take the advice from someone who is trusted.
That’s one thing I like about this app. Without this app,most of my of the books that I wanted to read wouldn’t even exist. Also the reviews help you see if you don’t like a book or which one works out.
I don’t use this often as I used to but I pop up every now and then to update and see what I want to read next. This is the best part for me.
No better app for book lovers! 5/5
What a great and easy way to track what I’ve read & what I want to read. Scan a cover - or even just a picture of a cover I see on line! Look at reviews, get recommendations and so much more. Just love it!
Very relatable characters and great story. I couldn’t put it down!!!!
Great site, incomplete app 3/5
I love Goodreads but this app is lacking. Links are broken. So many features aren’t available on mobile (honestly, it’s 2019. Is it possible to only have desktop options??). I keep hoping with every update that the app will improve but it simply maintains mediocrity.
A must have for all book readers! 5/5
By Cindy Guilliams
This app is excellent! I recommend it to all my friends who are book lovers. As a blind user, I find it relatively accessible with voiceover. I can do almost everything on the app. I am not able to view my book recommendations, but I like that I can log in what I want to read, and currently reading. A great app for everyone! I like also that I can view what my friends are reading, and what they want to read as well. That is my favorite part! I will never run out of books to read. That is a book lovers dream!
Keeps me on track! 5/5
Good Reads keeps me on track and helps prevent me from picking up the same books over and over again! It’s fun to have an insight to the authors writings and mindset with the comments that they share from time to time.
I like it 5/5
I love that I can keep up with books I see in passing that I want to read by putting them on my want to read shelve.
The reviews really help me out when I’m choosing my next read.
A Friend of Mr. Lincoln by Stephen Harrigan 4/5
This book is in large print. I am so happy I could read it.
I have never given much thought to Abe Lincoln’s early life outside of the picture of him lying on the floor of the log cabin in Indiana he was raised in. He read books in front of the fire about poetry and the law. He was an excellent story teller. He had a story for everything and everyone. Except for Mary Todd who kept him in a bipolar tizzy.
Reading about his days, friends, and enemies before he became POTUS was exceptionally enlightening.
I would recommend this book to the people who enjoy historical novels.
My biggest problem while reading this book was the lack of grammar usage. Repetitive mistakes of using had side by side makes me want to scratch out the extra had.
I plan to read this author’s other books.
I enjoyed reading this book very much.
Some really good writing and maybe some insight into the thoughts of confederate rebels.
Where fiction and fact meet however is fuzzy

Elinpr Oliphant is Completely Fine 1/5
This is, by far, The worst book I have ever read!!! I am concerned that someone would find humor in this book, it is sad and disrespectful. I read it because my book club selected it and actually, have thrown it in the trash, as a post to sharing with a friend.
Great app 4/5
This app is a great way to keep track of books I’ve read and want to read. Also, the yearly info they provide is helpful! I wish there was some sort of personal library option that allowed me to record what books I owned and what editions or other details. Overall, a wonderful app and useful tool!
Love it 5/5
Good Reads helps me stay connected to friends and family and get a sense of what is shaping the lives of our democratic society. It helps me live a more literate life.
