I’m a long time goodreads member. Since they have introduce ads into the iOS version, the UI experience has sucked beyond belief. I can’t scroll down the screen in certain areas. I’m better off pulling up the site on safari. Two use 👎🏻

Ann Patchett, one of my favorite authors, has done a masterful job of both character and plot development. The end left me wishing for more

Great, just wish it were easier to modify text (eg bold text, italicize, etc), took me quite a while to figure out how to do it
Lorraine37's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 9/4/18 10:07 PM
This is an amazing app, it helps me very much with finding new books to read. I just hope that soon there will be a feature where it will show the age rating for the book and if there are any curse words in some of the books.
Boomer22543's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 9/30/18 2:48 PM
Susie Larson did a wonderful way of sharing her story and her circumstances and how she moved from the here and now and looked forward to God’s promise- eternity. So often, we let our body determine how we feel, what we do and Fully Alive shows us that the healing begins inside in our spirit and how important our mind is in that process. I am excited about my future after reading this beautiful book.
jmacers's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 9/3/18 4:42 PM
Love Goodreads! If it’s not my favorite app, then it’s in the top 3. Always have it open when I’m in the library or bookstore and can’t remember what book I want to read. I recommend it to everyone, especially people who are looking for book ideas.
CathaoirLXIX's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 9/28/18 3:36 PM

JRR-559's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 9/28/18 12:44 PM
Having traveled in Asia extensively for business, I found the history about Korean-Japanese relations and the treatment of Korean immigrants to be very enlightening. The information about the Christian Church in colonial Korea was also interesting. By the end of the book though, I was beginning to wonder what the point of the book was supposed to be. It’s a bit like a Mitchner family chronology. I just wish there would have been a transcendent theme. In any case, kudos to Ms Lee for a good story.
Lalaalalaa's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 9/27/18 9:28 PM
please please please fix the search feature so when i very clearly type in the title of a book i am not given the most random results. EXAMPLE: when searching for “hidden figures” the first book that pops up is “freakonomics.” the search results never matches what you are searching until you’ve got 99% of the book typed in.
Ohio tallguy's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 9/27/18 8:22 PM
Really enjoyed this novel. If you like a good spy tale, you should like this book. A lot of good espionage tradecraft details, written by a former pro. Jason Matthews has also created many rich and believable characters. The perceptual powers of the Red Sparrow herself, Dominika, may strain credulity, but it’s done in a way ingeniously illuminates the story. I wish I had that power.
Narrowings's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 9/27/18 7:36 PM
It really has all of the features I’d want it to have. I check it before purchasing or even trying a book. I love the collections I can create, the honest criticisms and ratings from fellow readers, and the barcode scanner that helps me find a book instantaneously. Great application. I recommend for anyone who reads a lot or wants to read more.

scammy81's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 9/26/18 7:30 AM
Love at first sight isn't always smooth going, often there are many bumps on the way - and so it goes for Garrick and Hannah. Garrick is a complex character that Dawn has created as our erstwhile hero. He's been to war and carries scars and does not feel worthy of our dear Hannah. Hannah is a sweet young woman that is faced with challenges of her own but faces them with her head held high, she is a strong character and well developed by the author. The storyline is well thought out and introduces us to these and other fun and intriguing characters. I look forward to Ms. Hamilton's next book, hopefully we'll get to learn more about Warwick. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Kevin M. in MN's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 9/24/18 2:50 AM
Overall, a great app for tracking books that you’ve read and for providing reviews from other readers. Some of the user functionality could be improved a bit but not a major issue.

I started using the app again after about 6-8 months. I’m using an iPhone X. For some reason, page updates register only about 1 out of 10 times. Quitting the app, going to percentages and uninstalling and reinstalling have not solved the problem. Please help!!! Used to be a definite five star app for me! Bryan

Nythor's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 9/23/18 5:02 PM
I use it to keep tabs on my ebooks and physical books, and categorize by genre. It works well, except that it’s slow. Also, when I go to my Read list to tag multiple books, it takes me back to the top of the list instead of the previous tagged book. Also the app is slow in retrieving older books.
HopeO78's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 9/22/18 9:07 PM

Especially since I haven’t read much since college bc it took away the fun of reading and only now I’m starting to get back into it :’) But please make the mobile app better lmfaoo I would love more interaction with friends and making it easier to make new ones. I would love for this to be one of my top social apps bc it serves a purpose other than getting likes and whatnot ya know!? Make it fun, make it aesthetic, make it more interesting for younger people to be excited about reading !! Jusf a thought :~)
Bryan Baecker's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 9/22/18 3:26 AM
I have found a Good Reads to be a fantastic way to discover and share my favorite books. Pairing it with my Amazon account I am able to view the various passages I highlight during my reading. I then have the opportunity to take notes on them and share both with friends and family. In a time where I am deleting apps off my phone in order to regain valuable time and presence, Good Reads has a well-earned place among the remaining tools that enrich my life.

Why are certain features- like quotes - available on the desktop version but not the app? It’s super annoying and I end up having to go between desktop and mobile in order to access everything. I love goodreads, but the app is super buggy and frustrating.
Shawn.Wong's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 9/20/18 1:07 AM
I don’t understand how it is so well integrated with the wonderful Kindle app, yet at the same time any book I read is forcibly shared with anyone in my GR friends list. If I can’t keep certain books private, even after tons of ppl have requested private shelves, then no thanks, I rather not use GR at all.
Katie2112's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 9/2/18 5:59 PM

Klmccs's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 9/2/18 11:28 PM
I like GoodReads a lot although I find the app somewhat counter-intuitive. I have always kept a running list of books I read and with GoodReads I started doing it electronically. However, the app has lost track of my complete list with titles disappearing mysteriously. Anyway, if I were an app designer, I would organize it differently - but I am not so I use GoodReads and hope for the best.
rokinrev's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 9/19/18 9:20 PM
However, the app is not as good or easy to maneuver as the webpage. Still have to go to webpage to pick up my shelves or make a pin, so not much has changed since I first reviewed it —————- 3/22/18 I am choosing to reload this based solely on the writeup of the latest version. I don’t suffer fools so I’ll give it a week —— 3/31/2018 This “upgraded version” is worse... can’t find anything I need so back to a link on the tablet faves ——— 9/19/18 With the new Apple upgrade I thought maybe this would work better. I was dead wrong. It’s so slow
Bitehaley's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 9/19/18 11:02 PM
Wish this had all the same features as on the website, like giveaways and ect. This is a very basic version of goodreads which is fine but would be better with more.

mrsjones10's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 9/18/18 10:35 AM
I have been tracking all of my books for a few years now in the app. I love all the features and use it every day. This new version has some good features but the home screen doesn’t load anymore. I can’t see what my friends are reading anymore and do not see trending titles like I used to. I would love an easier way to track audiobooks too. Going in the book details and scrolling through 35 versions of a book before finding an audiobook version is annoying. Please also create a DNF tag so we can easily track books we do not finish. Right now, I delete them from my shelves so i do not get credit for reading them. I would also like to pull up previous years reading challenges so i can see my trends up or down. Thank you for a great app!

cookiemonster_sl's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 9/17/18 2:05 AM
I don’t leave reviews. How cliche???? But it’s true. So, when I wanted to link my library account, but couldn’t, I reached out through customer service expecting in a few weeks to get a canned response that tells me I’m an idiot for wanting to do what I was asking. Instead, within a day, I get a response from Mariana g. (Title is a Goodreads expert, and that is an understatement). She tells me she just added my library and gave very simple instructions. The app itself is awesome. I love that I’ve been able to track my 100s of books over the last few years. It has saved me from rereading terrible books that I’ve forgotten I've read. And I’ve gotten some great suggestions for books that might interest me. I can’t recommend this enough for beginning through heavy readers.
terraunbound's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 9/17/18 10:37 PM
There is no other app out there like this. Track what you have read, share great books with your friends, find new books too. I find this particularly useful for finding out the order of books in a series.

The site automatically loads all books purchased on Amazon, but I wish it included Apple iBooks and Barnes and Noble purchases and other bookstores. I love the free books that some authors give away for a lottery. I like the listing of author’s biographies. I also like how it keeps track of books that your Facebook friends are reading. It list of obscure books that are good reads. Great site.

Dakotareader's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 9/14/18 1:25 PM
Goodreads gives me a place to store the details about every book I’d like to read and books I’ve read. It’s also useful for making decisions about which books to actually read by reading reviews from other readers. Over time, I’ve “friended” readers around the world who share my taste in books and often get ideas from their lists as well. I especially like being able to store book notes and reactions here and to share them with others.
ratterrell's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 9/14/18 12:54 AM
I would give this app 5 stars and would have in the past. However, for the past few months home page feed never loads on my iPad. A quote appears and the loading circle notification spins and spins and updates from my feed never load. I can still add books, see my shelves, see progress from my reading challenge, etc., but I can’t see my friends’ updates. My iOS is up to date. Also, I can’t access giveaways in the app, only on the desktop.

kyle.c.'s Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 9/13/18 3:36 PM
I enjoy this app and primarily got it to track what I own. I have created a custom Owned shelf. The recommendation that I have is to be able to quickly display your custom shelves in the same display as the Read, Currently reading, and To read. Currently there is an extra click for ‘other shelves’. I also would like to edit the default shelf to a custom shelf, instead of the three default ones.

m0j0TX's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 8/7/18 6:52 AM
The Goodreads service used to be somewhat useful. I read a LOT, over 100 books per year, and I originally started using Goodreads so I could keep track of what books I wanted to read for when I would visit the used paperback book store. Nowadays, I mostly read books on my Kindle, and of course Goodreads was acquired a number of years ago by Amazon. I have to big complaints about the app: 1.) They present you with banner ads, and they are not even RELEVANT banner ads. Yes, you’re using their app to spoon-feed them marketing information about book-buying preferences, not to mention your hobbies and interests and tons of other golden data. Is that enough? NO! They still have to present you with cheesy banner ads like you normally see on poorly-made video games! UGH!!! 2.) Every time you finish a book, you get a stupid notification saying, “Start a conversation...share your notes on this book...blah blah blah.” When you read as much as I do, this is just irritating and annoying, and I cannot find any way to turn it off. Maybe it’s fine if you read five books a year, but when you read over 100, that’s multiple books PER WEEK, and I am NEVER going to respond positively to those notifications. Those two things right there have me *THIS CLOSE* to just deleting my Goodreads account for good. I don’t really see the value in it any more, and it appears that the Goodreads product management group is determined to kill the goose that lays golden eggs with their invasive ads and poor user experience.
Zai13's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 8/7/18 6:25 PM
I really like the app it keeps everything organized for me. Helps me remember what I’ve read and what I’m planning to read in the future. But I’d give it four star because I couldn’t find every book I searched for especially foreign books. I wish there would be an option where me can recommend adding a book if it’s not listed in the app.

I love this app. I does almost everything I need to research and keep track of my reading activities. But I'm not crazy about the recommendations section. The list barely never changes. I'd like to be able to swipe away the ones I'm not interested in to make room for more selections. And the same books appear in more than one list. I've actually selected books to put into my want to read list and then deleted them so that new selections will be added. Thanks

bneums's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 8/6/18 6:59 PM
This app is basically the same as keeping a list of books I’ve read on a spreadsheet, but with less ability to categorize. The only benefit is any book I open on amazon will automatically be added to goodreads, however it doesn’t feed back into my amazon account to tell me I’ve read the book already. I’d like to be able to note which books I started reading but just couldn’t get through it. The only options is “want to read” “currently reading” or “read”. You can add a new shelf but it doesn’t let you categorize the book as did not finish.

OUAT_CW's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 8/6/18 1:43 AM
So I love the idea seems like a really good app I like the set up all of that is fantastic my problem is that you have to have use kindle with it. Which seems a little ridicules to me. Like why download this app but then half to go and make an account for ANOTHER book reader app. I personally think this app would be A LOT better if I didn’t have to also have a kindle account. Like I said love the idea but was very frustrated by that little detail. If this gets resolved (it probably won’t) I may give it five stars and re-download the app.

You root for Mary and Glen to find happiness, just hope that it will work out. Support from her bff and extended friends help Mary to just go with it. I now have to reread 6th again. Ready to read more from Catherine.
maawolfe36's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 8/4/18 9:43 AM
I'm loving this app! I tried Goodreads a few years ago on my PC, but at the time I didn't realize there was an app and I ended up not using it very much. I recently got a Kindle and since it has Goodreads built-in, that got me back on the platform and I downloaded the iPhone app too. Goodreads is a fantastic way to explore popular and new books, as well as sharing recommendations with friends and keeping track of book I've read and books I want to read. I'm loving the intuitive interface, and it's so awesome being able to update my progress from my Kindle. The iPhone app makes it fast and easy to update even for books that aren't on my Kindle, and I also use it to keep a running wishlist. Keep up the good work, Goodreads!

I don’t usually leave app reviews but I truly love this app. I love being able to set reading goals and find new and exciting books that I want to read! I wish it had a notification when a book that you want to read, but hasn’t been released yet, comes out! I discovered a few series that I fell in love with but sequels haven’t been put out quite yet and that would be very handy. This app helped me rediscover my love of reading after a few years of hiatus so honestly, truly, thank you.
Serendipity2012's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 8/30/18 4:10 AM
Unfortunately, as with most forms of social media, bullies hide behind the anonymity of a keyboard and think it’s okay to say whatever mean and nasty things they want to say about a book, an author or even readers and the app owners do nothing to discourage it. Everyone’s taste in books is different. If you read something you don’t care for, write a review and explain why, or better yet, don’t waste your time reading a book you don’t like. If you must write a review, write constructively. It serves no purpose to belittle other readers for their taste in books. You lose credibility when you attack readers instead of constructively explaining any issues you have with the subject, plot, characters etc. I listened to an audio book that I really enjoyed. Compared to many of the books I’ve recently read this was a breath of fresh air. I went on Goodreads thinking I might find fellow readers who enjoyed it only to find this app filled with as much hate and bullying as twitter and other social media. I’m very disappointed and have deleted the app. People ruin most good concepts. This is nothing but reality television in app form. Treat people with kindness. Don’t spread hate.

For example, when I get a friend request it would be nice for me to be able to go to their page and accept it instead of me accidentally adding them. I wish we could do everything that’s available if we were to be on the actually website.

This app has some interesting books that I would like to read but I’m confused on where to go to read them... I’ve tried clicking on just about everything but nothing has given me the option to read.

I keep finding different limitations everyday. I can’t view the blow without going to a browser first then opening it in the app. I can’t comment on blog posts. I am constantly wanting to add quotes while away from my computer but the app doesn’t have a link for that or to search quotes. Love the site. The app is close to worthless for me.
Violinknitter's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 8/24/18 5:49 AM
ETA: Oh, look, an update and the homepage STILL won’t load! I’ve used Goodreads for years, and in general love it. The app, despite recent improvements, still drives me batty. The main problem is that Home (with all of my friends’ updates) takes *forever* to load, and often refuses to load at all, which is infuriating. The other problem is that when I see a book’s description in my home feed & want to read more, tapping on “read more” doesn’t simply expand the rest of the text, it takes me to the book’s main page, WHERE THE REST OF THE TEXT IS STILL HIDDEN!!!!!! I then have to click “read more” there, and then navigate back to my home feed, where the stupid app will have LOST MY PLACE and sent me back not the top! Come **ON**, Goodreads!!! Let me expand the text and stay on the updates screen! I don’t want to navigate back & forth & click three or four times just to see the rest of a book blurb!!!!
Corinea D.'s Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 8/24/18 5:27 PM
This book was an entertaining plethora of short stories with intense imagination & recognized fears. It offers humor, science fiction, expressive drama, & an intriguing array of interpretations that can be perceived in your own personal magnitude. It starts with ‘Mercy’, about an innate light on intellectual survival through an invasion of poisonous warfare & the immense possibility of other forms of existence. It ends with ‘Season Finale’, which is an explicit version of an alternative to the truth of resurrection. The author’s mind is filled with a playground of slip-n-slide ideas involving some of our worst enemies entwined in the cobwebs of a haunted forest. There are devils inside some of the featured stories disguised as angels with a twisted tilt to their glowing halo that you’ll fail to notice until the final words. Thought-provoking views inspires challenging ideas exploring unique personalities in the characters & of alternate universes. This book offers the twists & turns of a roller coaster with jolting endings to each story leaving you wanting another ride.
hrjordan's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 8/23/18 8:29 PM
I love this app! One suggestion I have though, is to give us the ability to see our previous year's Reading Challenges. If there is a way currently, I have no idea how to get to it.
SusanRodriguez's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 8/23/18 10:36 PM
I adore Goodreads so I hate only giving it 3 stars right now especially when their app is definitely improving. However, their Groups and Lists sections and all the non-personal-bookshelf sections need some serious TLC. I would be far more likely to use the app if these things were updated in some more useable fashion.
Toomanybarts's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 8/22/18 9:34 PM
Recommendations are a PITA as they insist on using cover flow vs a grid of book covers. Even Apple retired that functionality as cumbersome. 8/22/18 UPDATE - it’s still 1982 in GoodReads land!
Momi4nine's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 8/22/18 6:08 PM
I practically use this app every single day. It is amazing. It helps me find books I never would have seen otherwise. It is a book lifesaver. I was at the point where I had read almost ever book in my section of the library, and GoodReads really helped me find MUCH more books to read. I give it 5 stars.

sheremy's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 8/2/18 9:09 PM
For the most part I love this app. One thing I’m going to try is the exclusive dnf shelf but having it already there would be great especially if that made sure it didn’t get counted and you wouldn’t have to see it all the time. Also, I love getting the emails with book recommendations BUT when you tap Want To Read in the email it takes you to the website and wants you to log in instead of taking me to the app where I’m always logged in. It’s a minor detail but such a pain. I don’t want to try and remember another password every time I like the sound of a book.

Anytime I’m scrolling down a list of books (recommended, categories, books “everyone should read”) I scroll the first 15-20 then get to the bottom and the “more” button is behind the bottom navigation bar. I’m unable to go any further. Occasionally the more button is available, but typically it’s inaccessible.

I love Goodreads and being able to keep track of books I have read and would like to read. However, the app will display that I have a notification, but when I go into the app and look at notifications, it won’t show the new one 90% of the time. And the little notification number won’t disappear until I open and close the notifications page multiple times (still never showing me my new notification). It’s a little frustrating to never be able to actually read my notifications.

paul132's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 8/18/18 1:13 AM
This is the first gothic romance I have ever read. Unsure what drew me to it but I’m glad it did. Well written with great character developments. Story held my interest from start to finish. I had a little trouble with the Scottish vocabulary in the beginning but it was ok. Don’t be afraid, it is only used a little. I would probably have given the story a 5 star but I was a bit disappointed that I needed to read the next book to see what happened next, though this story did come to a reasonable ending if you don’t want to continue
mcmstk's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 8/18/18 10:36 AM
I love being able to share my book reviews with my friends! However the reason why I rated it a 4 is because I wish that the ratings will be in 0.5 increments. Other than that, love the app!

♥xxshelbyxx♥'s Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 8/16/18 6:12 AM
I haven't had this app very long and have seen a few issues. The main issue is that the app drains my battery life quickly. Another problem is the scanner. Some books it says not found. I can search them just fine. It just takes longer. I was going through my read list and a book was added that I never even heard of. Some I hadn't rated showed that they were. I wish it was a bit easier adding books in a series to a list. Some don't have the more option so I have to click each one. At first I had skipped the challenge, but decided to give it a try. I was disappointed that I couldn't add the books I did read this year to it. Trying to go through a list it'd sometimes refresh. For the most part I like the app. I'd love to put every book I own, but that'd just take way too long.

Mmdd76's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 8/15/18 3:45 PM
La escritura de Marcelo Lillo (Chile, 1957) me hizo pensar en un rio ancho y profundo, cuya superficie registra apenas suaves movimientos. Así mismo como la vida transcurre allí en el fondo y no en la superficie, del mismo modo opera su literatura: en la profundidad del lector. Lillo, profesor de secundaria en provincias, comenzó a escribir a los 15 años pero publicó por vez primera a los 50, cuando el crítico Ignacio Echevarría supo de él en un concurso de cuentos. El escritor entonces vivió -y aborreció- la consabida fama literaria, y ello lo llevó a desaparecer del mundo editorial por 5 años, refugiado en Niebla, un pueblo a 870 kilómetros de Santiago. Su reaparición llega con De vez en cuando como todo el mundo, 30 cuentos, algunos conocidos y otros nuevos, en los que el autor despliega su capacidad extraordinaria para narrar con sencillez y austeridad la desolación, lo inevitable, de lo cotidiano. No veremos héroes ni antihéroes en estos relatos, solo vidas corrientes enfrascadas con resignación en los tópicos de existir, de amar, de perdonar, de aceptar la vida como es. Por ejemplo: un escritor que se auto publica y vende su obra de pueblo en pueblo; padre e hijo que van camino a desconectar a la madre moribunda; hermanos que afrontan el último encuentro con el progenitor desaparecido; maridos infieles consumiéndose en sus laberintos; parejas que observan tv mientras sus relaciones se apagan; un chico que encuentra su voz leyéndole a una niña moribunda: mujeres desoladas y hartas de sus vidas. Caletas, siempre caletas, en donde el aire sabe a sal y las mañanas huelen a algas. Así es el sútil y lacónico universo del gran escritor Marcelo Lillo, de seguro una aparición feliz en las letras chilenas e Iberoamericanas. ~De vez en cuando como todo el mundo. Marcelo Lillo. Edición formato digital 2018. Penguin Random House.~
Bethaneeeeee's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 8/14/18 3:35 AM
I had to write a review on this book for homework and I was almost done writing it when I went to google and searched up a word but when I went back to the app my review was gone which makes me really sad because the review took me a long time to do and I had to start all over again . Can you guys pls do a draft feature or something so we can go back to our review and not have to start all over again
NedBin's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 8/14/18 12:38 AM
I am an avid user of this app. I have an extensive list of all books Read, Want to Read, etc. The issue I have is that I can’t keep updated with the next book that comes out in a series. There are currently so many books that have been out in continuation of a series that I had been reading and unfortunately I have no clue. I would LOVE it if this app was able to monitor and alert you to when a new book in a series that you are reading is released. Also, when a Series comes to an end it’s automatically placed in a “Series ended” category. Would love this option! Developer, will you or are you currently working on a way to implement an alert system in the a Goodreads app to make my above wishes come true? This would put your app at 5 stars in “my book”! :)

Goodreads, the readers version of Ravelry, is a great place to track what I’ve read and my impressions of a book. But the app can be a little challenging to navigate. I like that I’m able to access it on my Kindle PW, that makes it easy to track progress.

kyleandrun's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 8/10/18 4:53 PM
I don’t think I know anyone who doesn’t like this app. There are some people who really don’t like reviews, or critics, or ratings or anything like that, so it might not be a 100% for them, but the way it’s built you don’t have to access any of those features and still get the most out of it. If nothing else the “Want to Read” feature is a great way for bookmarking books you want to read or think look interesting. And like IMDB, sometimes you find yourself just going down different rabbit holes of authors, books they’ve written, similar books, similar authors, bookmarking interesting books all along the way. Love it.

Sneaky Crew's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 8/1/18 3:01 AM
Great to track progress and see reviews of books from individuals on the platform. Wish easier to categorize - a bit clunky. For example why can I not add a book to my reading challenge and why not in two places. To the challenge and also to my reading folder. sometimes it is difficult to see where book saved or how categorized. Would also love to have open reading groups that could join. Could even be by geography.
Little Librarian Lady's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 8/1/18 2:58 PM
I absolutely love Goodreads. No only is the best and most popular book review website but I also use it as a librarian all the time to look up the order of a series, to look up a title or author and I even encourage my staff to use it at my library for readers advisory services. I haven’t been using the app portion very long but it seems easy to navigate and easily organized.
Maria Angelina's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 8/1/18 2:24 PM
I’ve noticed that my notifications don’t update. I’ll get the notification that there is a new contest from an author you follow, but when I click on my notification tab there’s nothing there.
Haxdddfhhuvv's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 8/1/18 1:42 AM
This app just isn’t as good as it could be. I primarily only use the app on my phone. My biggest issue is the Update Progress button. It’s fine when all you’re doing is updating your progress. But more than once, I’ve made the error of writing a long review of a book, clicking on the “I’ve finished this book!” button, and rated the book. When you do this, that long review disappears. I now know that need to click the “I’ve finished this book!” button, rate the book, then go to the book’s page and review it there. I also don’t like that I might get a notification when people comment on my updates, but I won’t get a notification if someone replies to something I wrote on their update. Lastly, I dislike some of the limitations within the app, such as not being able to manipulate my bookshelves unless I use the desktop site. It’s nice for keeping track of what you’ve read and for looking up books to read, but as a way to interact socially about books, it is deeply flawed.
likjoy's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 8/1/18 10:07 PM
I use goodreads to track how many books I’m reading and to see what others are rating books. This app is really cool except I feel like the overall design and functionality of this app is just plain and doesn’t work very well. It’s hard to access different parts of the app and use it properly. It wouldn’t be a hard fix, still a good app though.

When I checked my progress on my yearly challenge the other day, I was disappointed to see that I was only 10% in. Then I realized the challenge is only counting my Kindle books, not all the books I’ve added to my “read” list. I remember having this same issue a couple of years ago, so I’m not sure why I actually signed up to do another challenge. Is there something I'm missing? Four stars for loving the fact that I can digitally store all of the books I’ve read. At least most of them. If I could figure out the challenge, I would boost it to five.

HopeO78's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 7/7/18 11:36 PM
I would give this app a definite 5-star rating if there was a way to track owned books from the app. To be able to sort your books, and say if you own a copy of a book, as you able to do from the desktop version. I think that all of the tools and functionality of the desktop version need to be made available on the mobile app. I use this app a few times every day, as I am an avid reader, so it would be helpful to have it in its full capacity.
Barbros's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 7/6/18 3:34 AM
Historical Highland Romance This historical timepiece is told from both the English and Scottish Highlanders viewpoints. The author writes is such a way that you can almost hear the Scottish brogue and her very descriptive scenes make it easy to picture life during that time period. The twists and turns of the storyline kept me interested throughout. War is declared because of the English Lord Flynn’s selfishness. Sarah escapes his cruelty during the confusion of battle and met Drew, a wounded Scot. Neither expected to find love because of their extreme anger and hatred towards each other’s heritage but were open enough to give it a chance. A nice surprise ending brings the brothers together and sets the stage for Declan’s story. To learn more about the brothers read the prequel ‘Blair’ for the backstory. I look forward to reading more about Declan and the McCall Clan.
Lindailin's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 7/6/18 1:41 AM

OurGypsyLife's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 7/4/18 6:57 AM
Goodreads is a fantastic app. It keeps track of the “want to” and the “have read” and “I’ll get to if I find time” books. Brilliant. Perfect. Love. My exception is perhaps silly but man, it annoys me. When I open the app there is always a quote. Inevitably a quote that is brilliant or deep or perhaps witty. Unless you speed read you can barely soak it in AND if you can actually read it, it disappears before you can see who said it. Can’t we have at least 2 more seconds to enjoy/discover/absorb the fantastic quotes someone at goodreads had obviously taken the time to research and share? Let’s stop the haste and appreciate great minds. Please.
Zmeme's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 7/31/18 9:27 PM
Misleading. This may prove to be a brilliant app down the road but at download and setup, it’s misleading. We’re led to believe that you can read within the app but in fact you can’t read a word within the app. Disappointing. It’s only after tapping on just about every jot, button and blemish hunted and discovered on the screen wall, that finally after about 45 minutes I arrived at Settings, Help, and FAQ. As soon as you tap on FAQ the first topic and bit of info that pops up explains, “You cannot read within this app”. Seriously? Thanks a lot!💥! Now, can you please GIVE ME BACK MY WASTED HOUR LOST in attempts to read my book selection, since being mislead by your “app marketing department” saying that this app is a great way to read books? Sell your app honestly please!

I had to download GoodReads a good 5 years ago for a school project. I connected it to Facebook at the time, and then never used it again. Fast forward to a few years later, I’ve downloaded the app using a different email, and now there is no way for me to connect to FB, therefore I’m missing out on connecting with many friends. There is no way for me to access the old email I originally used, as it was a student email. This seems like it could be a fairly easy fix, so please do something about it!!

Jay2DaNaay's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 7/3/18 6:11 AM
Great app for me to discover new books to read, organize books I'm reading currently as well as give me reccomdations after having finished a book of a particular genre. I really like the percentage completed when you type in how many pages you have read. It really helped to get me to finish books quicker because I wanted to reach 100% (finished 2 books in one day bc of it). That all being said, would it be possible to have a night mode feature in the app? The white background with black text is classic and all, but having a darker background with white text is much easier on the eyes, not just in terms of looks but eye strain for those of us who do some light night perusing of new releases. Overall great app, wish I found it sooner.

douglas cole's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 7/29/18 8:48 PM
The floral arrangement of Barbara Knott’s beautiful new collection of poetry, In Every Carnation The Body of God, contains musical and philosophical meditations full of glorious creations such as “Boxwood,” a poem both elegy for grandmother “Della” and petal in the flower of theological exploration, with luminous language and visionary moments such as this: In dreams I dislodge her body from roadside layers of stone Knott’s poetry is rich in imagery and always centered on the exploration promised in its title. Like the romantic poets and writers such as Lorca, Jung, and Eliot, bouqueted in the preface, Knott takes up the search for the divine in the material world. As we see, for example, in “Fox Eyes”: Each tree begins its own big life a hundred times as big as the life of a human inside a seed small as an acorn Intertwining myth, religion, nature and true human lives, Knott leaves no stone unturned as she seeks for “The God Secret.” So, as you read these wonderful poems, find yourself entranced, like the witness in the poem “Under Closed Eyes”: fill us with desire and through the beloved lead us to more abundant life!

suzeroonie's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 7/27/18 3:34 AM
I loved this app, but honestly I use it more as a personal log of my books and don’t really interact with any of my friends on goodreads. The automatic share to Facebook however, would get my Facebook friends talking about books and that’s where the social aspect of this app came in. I’m not sure I’ll be using this as much anymore without the share to Facebook option.
Frak!'s Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 7/27/18 12:10 PM
Too bad auto share to FB is no longer supported. It was convenient and helpful. Otherwise, GR still okay.

Hatch82's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 7/26/18 4:25 AM
Goodreads is intended to combine book reading and social networking but it's better than that. I don't really use the social part of Goodreads. This app will help you find other good books and best of all help you keep track of your reading. You can mark your progress on a book and make lists of books you've read, currently reading and going to read. If anything it'll help you stay organized. I highly recommend it to avid readers or people who have a large book list.
Bridgetleigh's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 7/26/18 2:22 PM
The new update took out one of the only features worth having - a way to post your book updates to Facebook. Seems simple but apparently not. This app is great for many things but I don’t think I’ll use it now that I can’t share my progress with everyone.
Mavi&books's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 7/25/18 4:36 PM
I liked the book just OK. The ending is weird. If it had not been for my book club, I would have abandoned the book.
spkozxnd's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 7/25/18 1:09 AM
Don’t waste your time with this app. We are preparing to move from a house we’ve occupied for 10 years. As an avid reader you can imagine the amount of books I’ve collected. I created a folder and titled it “Books Packed to Move”. I had over 50 titles in that folder. I opened the app today to pack more books away and every single book I’ve scanned is GONE. With all the time I put in to scanning them, and have already packed the box, I’m devastated.
JaneDoe789's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 7/25/18 11:56 PM
Updates: I wasn’t aware that my data was shared with Facebook, and I despise Facebook! I deleted my Instagram account and WhatsApp account, and now must I delete Goodreads? Please cut off your ties with Facebook already.... I like Goodreads in general, and I like how it improved over the years! That’s being said, it’s been too many “errors” lately with this app. But the worst part is, the questions or issues that I ask/report regarding this app lately is often brushed off and it dies concerns me that they stopped listening to its users and making improvements.
LA member's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 7/24/18 2:58 AM
It took me a while to find out that iOS version of the app doesn’t have a feature to add private notes to the books. What’s is the purpose of the app then? Book tracking app... Waste of time.

TheReadingRoom444's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 7/23/18 8:59 PM
What an amazing read!!! The ending was so powerful and beautiful to me!! I am so moved, I cried because of the messages layered and laced throughout the characters, the plot, the chapters and pages!!! Despite despair, hope, courage , faith , and love will always see us through and allow us to win!! !!! How beautifully written #tomiadeyemi !!! My heart is moved!!! I also absolutely loved loved loved discovering Roën and his playful mannerisms right around Chapter 77!!!!! Tomi Adeyemi had such a clever way to incorporate such a fluid mischievous fun character to balance out the heaviness of Zélie’s tribulations, that appeared in the latter chapter. I am so excited to see how the amazingly mischievously charismatic Roën will play in the books to come? I highly recommend this book!!!

Kkppp2's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 7/23/18 12:40 AM
Let me start off by saying, I read this book in one sitting. As a mother, I immediately felt a connection to Nina and to Tom. Both parents who wanted nothing but the best for their children. What happens though when one of your children is a spoilt, entitled, criminal. Add to that the fact, said child has a parent who will lie to get that chi,d out of trouble. I admire how Nina strives to be a “good” person and in the end is able to be the woman she strives to be. Spoiler alert: I’m glad she and Tom became best friends and were able to put their talents to good use by helping less fortunate children. It begs to question what kind of parent would we choose to be and how far would we go to protect our children.
alexanderdjr's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 7/23/18 10:47 PM
...especially when compared to an app like Bookly. Amazon seems to squander its opportunity to wrap valuable data (contents of personal library, reading speeds, start date, finish date, etc.) in a fun, well designed, experience. I wish there was some way Bookly could connect to Amazon's APIs to allow access to Kindle/Audible data. Good Reads is stable and functional. Nothing more, though.
Cricket 2.0's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 7/22/18 12:46 PM
The mysteries are good. What makes it painful to read is that the heroine is such a doormat. She is treated awful by family and friends. In her thoughts she says she will stick up for herself then she knuckles under. If it wasn’t for the library I wouldn’t read these books. I wouldn’t pay for it.

I just wanted to say that I love this app. They continue to update and improve the app.through this app I have been able to organize all my books into different categories that are easy to navigate. I have also received number OSU recommendations that relate to what I want to relate. I have read reviews that convinced to me to read or book. I have also had debates with friends over the website about different books. The app allows ,e to set personal goals for myself. Finally they have allowed me to have books that I have reread count toward my reading challenge. Could not be more pleased
MonBon585's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 7/20/18 4:27 AM
So I’m not going to give any details but the author went a little crazy with the surprises. I love a good plot twist and was engaged for about 3/4 of the book... but she should have stopped while she was ahead. The ending of this book is beyond unrealistic. This book had potential !

I love GoodReads and have been using it for about 4 years, however, with this new update when I update progress in a book using the page number that I’m on, I can’t see the progress in percentage. I know that there is an option for percentage but I have to put in a specific percentage and I don’t know the exact percentage I am on. GoodReads, can you please put the percentage progress from page numbers back on please? It was extremely helpful for me.

This is my go-to app for everything books! I love the personal shelves and how I can keep track of the books I've already read, this in currently reading, and those I want to read. Also, the user base is huge, so I feel like I get a solid sense of the quality of the book based on the reviews within the app. I recommend this app to all readers and to those who want to read more. One feature that I would like to see added is the ability to leave personal, private comments on the books in my to-read list, so I could record for future reference things like why I want to read that book, who recommended it to me, etc.

If you’re the type who reads reviews before you even consider reading a book, Goodreads is the perfect place for you! It’s my favorite place to go to when I am looking for a good book to snuggle up with. The best place for reviews on any book and on any niche. Awesome recommendations and the community is always ready to help you find that perfect read. I absolutely love this app and pretty much live on Goodreads always eager to find that next great paranormal romance series! I am a Huge BDB fan! ❤️📖

Madhattersam's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 7/16/18 6:58 PM
Its a great little app for review books your are interested in but the recommend section needs work. It will show a limited number of books and the same ones dominate my list even though I don’t want to read them. I wish it would offer more recommendations and allow me to toggle where a book should stay on the list or not.
Gingersnap1029's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 7/16/18 6:08 AM
Goodreads is an AMAZING tool and I’d HIGHLY recommend it to anyone. The app works great, but it’s missing the listopia part and it isn’t easy to navigate or see others bookshelves. This is how I tend to get most of my new book recommendations, which is really one of my main motivators for using goodreads. However other than the limited access, the app is great and always runs smoothly for me.
LilOne614's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 7/16/18 3:06 PM
I have read some of this author’s stories and I am a huge fan. Never thought to read about MMA fighting or to even watch but the story pulls you in and makes you want to keep reading, do a little research on the sport and to see what happens when certain groups blow the whistle. In any case this story keeps you guessing and even though some of it may be a little predictable it has me curious that I want to keep reading about the characters and their outcome. Does he get the girl in the end? Does the girl walk away because she cannot handle what his profession is? Can he win a professional fight? See so many questions but you have to read the entire series to get the answers.

Ellenchka's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 7/14/18 9:11 PM
Is a fine novel of a woman who has suffered tremendously as a child, but has suppressed these events and isolated herself in her work, routines and rituals as well as vodka, all of which help her ward off her feelings. Then finds the love of her life, a musician she aims to marry in spite of having no real connection to him or even others; she sets off to improve herself skin-deep thinking this will be enough. Then, she and a co-worker end up saving the life of an older gentleman who draws her into his life and family. These changes slowly open her up to interacting with others and precipitate changes which lead her to a crisis. Therapy and the people who have stepped into her life help her uncover the events of her childhood and her repressed feelings so that she can begin to heal. At the beginning of the novel, her behavior can be seen as off-putting but by the end you can see that she will make real progress in her life and emotional well-being. Nicely done.
kimleimer's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 7/14/18 8:21 PM
I’ve been using Goodreads consistently for about two and a half years. Features I love: ability to keep a to-read list; ability to see friends’ feeds of books read and rated; shelves to differentiate types of books. Features that need improvement: ease of adding and deleting books; antiquated design/appearance; stagnant recommendations that do not correspond well with books previously read and rated. Overall, I’m happy to have a platform like this, but it needs updates.

I like the idea of good reads. I like to see what my friends are reading and rate the books I have read. However finding authors I want to follow is quite difficult and I am a tech savvy person. Also, my wish list for ebooks from amazon doesn’t sync with my want to read books from goodreads which makes it very disorganized.

Inspector Morose's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 7/12/18 1:52 PM
Clive James’s essays provided an insightful and sometimes humorous look into how a poet reads poetry. He provides some excellent examples of attention to language and image. The essays also introduced me to some new (to me) poets from Britain and Australia. My only criticism is that I wished he had discussed more female poets—mostly because I am always on the prowl for new material to use in class. This lack he also acknowledges as such in the introduction.

They make this app more complicated and confusing that it needs to be. You want to add your own shelf? Good luck, it either won’t add or won’t be recognized when trying to add a book to it. Why won’t more than two shelves show up on my shelf page? Why do I have to click into a second menu just to access them? Why when I try to add a book it lists shelves that don’t even exist. It’s terrible.
Cechapline's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 7/1/18 10:10 PM
Have been using the app for several years now and really like that I can use it as a handy way to remind myself what I want to look for at my library, bookstore, or online library. Only one suggestion/disappointment. It would be great if I could “teach” the app to recommend better for me. There are some books it simply insists I will like, but I’m certain I won’t. If I could tell it “no way!” And have the book removed from the list, I might get a recommendation I truly would like to read.

James-Helmut's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 6/5/18 11:27 PM
The book tells little about the actual making of the movie. It’s more about the drug/alcohol induced privileged, hippies of Harvard in their ability to write satirical comments of current events. Without funding from rich family and associates and a counter culture of stoned mindless faux 1960s intellectualism, these people were failures. Enjoy the movie for the crazy antics of great comic actors and not for the self loathing directors and producers.
Lvlylisa's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 6/5/18 10:53 PM
Love having the list of books I’ve read and recommendations from friends all in one tidy place. The only thing I don’t like is the search engine - you really have to have the exact book title to get a hit. I usually google the book and then bring it into the app. One other thing is that sorting your own books is hit or miss - it does not put them in order by date correctly. Sometimes a book I just added is nowhere to be found unless I enter its exact title. So I guess that is two complaints.

This app is one of my favorites. It is the best resource for me to find series books and the recommended reading order. As odd as it may sound, not all authors provide such things. Especially when they have a few series that cross over with one another. Goodreads is also a great place to go if you want to try a series but you’re not sure... you start here. I refer to my Goodreads app all the time. I keep it updated with books I’m reading, books I’ve read with reviews if I want, and books I’m looking forward to reading. It’s a must have for me. I definitely recommend to everyone and anyone who loves to read.

alissaknight's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 6/3/18 6:48 PM
When I evangelize GoodReads to friends and family I liken it to a social network for book readers. I am addicted to GoodReads and am quick to update my status of a book read to my account. The value it brings me is not just being able to create all my virtual book shelves and follow the books my friends read, but to also use it as a way to “tag” the books I want to read later. I’m so glad to have this platform just for those who read and it’s my hopes that Amazon doesn’t abandon it in lieu of larger profit making projects if only to have a place that readers from around the world can congregate virtually away from the noise of other social networks.

I LOVE this app, but could you please add last names for friends? I am so tired of getting requests that say “Sean” has requested to be your friend. Sean who? I know at least four Seans. And even by clicking through to the profile I can’t find anywhere that includes a full name. Sometimes if they have included a profile picture you can tell, but usually even that’s not helpful. Please at least add it into the person’s profile!!!

I like the app a lot. I like the fact that I can see what my friends are reading and get a perspective on a book that they loved. It also helps me find something that is worth reading.. but my problem is that I’m only limited to the friends that has been registered on Good Reads. Granted for the fact that I can invite friends but I believe this app would be better if we could follow anyone regardless of favorite author, friends and family. There are some celebrities, musicians, and also Sober bloggers that I admire and would love to see what they are reading. I think this app can be something popular if they opened it up to more celebrities or inspirational speakers. I love my friends but I want to know what Laura Mckowen, Talib Kweli, Jimmy Fallon, and more are reading. I want to see what they find as good reads for them. I also think this would expose people to more authors and help them gain more revenue for their books. So that way authors can write more books!
AngelaKarnes's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 6/24/18 9:06 PM
Plus - creating own bookshelves Plus - creating and joining book groups Plus - creating email signatures displaying a book from a designated shelf ("Currently Reading") Minus - removed link to LinkedIn to display partial bookshelf. Liked seeing what other professionals are reading. Would like this to be added back Minus - not all titles have covers, and some titles not found - not sure what to do about this Wish List: Add books to an actual wish list (sort of a gift registry) Wish List: analytics of titles, authors, genres shelved
Susan Fryman's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 6/24/18 5:55 PM
I use this several times a day. It helps in so many ways: keeping track of what I’ve read, helping me choose wisely my next novel, discovering authors new to me, etc.
itsnotcastiel's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 6/24/18 3:54 AM
This app is so wonderful! I love it so much because it helps me stay organized. I’m always buying new books and I can never remember which I still need to read. This app helps me keep track of all of that and more! My only complaint is, there is a glitch when it comes to sending friend requests and following people. It seems that once you follow someone, you can’t unfollow them. Similarly, one you friend request someone, you can’t take back the request. The two actions come hand-in-hand so once you send a friend request, you are automatically following that person. I wish there were a way to unfollow and unsend friend requests. Regardless, this is an amazing app that I will continue to use. Just this one minor detail that would make all the difference. Thank you!

jab.adam's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 6/23/18 9:33 PM
I love to read and the idea of sharing them with my friends, but I do not think that this app works as effectively as it could. I should be able to list a book I am reading, and then transfer it to a book I have read. That is the idea, but the actual process does not work that well. I also like being able to show my reading progress, but this new classifying books into their genre is not always an easy task. Maybe it would be best for me to clear everything I have done and start again, at square one.

Jankea4's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 6/21/18 6:51 PM
I love this app; it’s a great way to keep track of what I’ve read and find new books to read I wouldn’t have found otherwise. However, there’s a bug that won’t let me update the date I finished books, which then affects my 2018 reading challenge because it says I haven’t read as many books as I actually did read. I’ve tried editing the dates read on both my phone and computer multiple times and in multiple ways, but it doesn’t work. Even when it does save, the date somehow gets deleted again. Edited: I received multiple developer responses apologizing for the problem. They were quick to fix the bug and were very courteous in handling the matter.

9 Times out of ten my feed doesn’t load or takes a very long while to load. I can access my shelves but I want to see what my friends and authors that I follow have posted. Kinda the point, right? It wasn’t always this way. More so in the last few months. Please make an update to resolve this. Might as well use my computer (which is slow as all get out) and I would see my feed easier than this.

Love this app except for a few things. The only thing i can't access is the quotes I've saved from every book which was one of my favorite things about the site. Also, my account always says I have several notifications & then when I click it nothing is there. This feature seems to be permanently broken ever since I've downloaded the app several years ago.

Satsumy's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 6/14/18 6:17 AM
This app has some of the best real people reviews on books. It helps me to get a clear idea on what the book is about and how the general population has responded to it. My only concern, is that I don’t get to explore much new content. I browse and I either get repeated books, or as of lately it doesn’t allow me to load more pages thru mobile. I would love to get recommended books that are different from what I am used to reading so that when Im exploring I don’t get similar plots to books I’ve already read, as well as not seeing repeated books. Other than that, Goodreads is amazing!

hlhamiltong's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 6/11/18 8:56 AM
I read this book in response to an email I received from my son’s high school. Our community has recently become aware of a suicide crisis at our high school and is struggling and scrambling to understand it and address it. I don’t remember what the email said, but it was alerting parents to the subject matter of this book due to our current crisis. (Maybe a movie was coming out about it?) Anyway, I took on the reading under the guise of parental responsibility. But mostly I wanted to arm myself with facts. Just in case those parents who wish to protect their children by avoiding difficult topics began a crusade about or against this book. I liked it. It goes in a vein of other titles I’ve read that deal with wickedly difficult subjects like, for example, Unwind by Neal Shusterman. I appreciate his storytelling format more after reading the author’s interview and the end. I plan on asking my son to read it. Because I believe knowledge is power. And this book demonstrates beautifully, yet simply, how the things we do and say impact others. It also demonstrates, just as well, the importance of standing up for yourself and asking for help when you need it. True critique? I was bothered by the quick back and forth of Hannah’s story interjected with Clay’s real-time responses. I understand the value in telling the story this way, but it really disrupted the flow. I’m still really glad I read it.

Wordy5722's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 6/1/18 7:57 PM
This app has been so helpful. It allows me to keep track of what I’ve already read and, even better, keep track of the books I want to read. I’ve always recommended it to my friends and fellow librarians. But this year, it just seems to glitch all the time. After I’ve read a book, I faithfully record it with the date read. But then it doesn’t show up anywhere- not on my read books, nor on my reading challenge. If I do a search for it, it comes up in my books as having been read. Customer service is always so helpful, and the issue is fixed - until a few books later when it happens again. All of this is to say - I love the app. I’m just tired of the problems with it.

I made a goal to read more so I reinstalled this app and now it has ads all over the screen when it never used to. I searched the app itself and couldn’t find a way to shut them off—I’d even be willing to pay a small one time fee to do so. But as it stands, I don’t see myself fighting through the ads to get to this app’s content.

This is probably a cool and enjoyable way to learn of books not always advertised but the demand to have to review a number of books in order to have more access to books got a bit old for me. I guess if you like to write extensive reviews all the time you may find this app interesting.
Sexy Jim in the box's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 5/9/18 12:50 PM
Besides the constant harassment to rate the application, I have found good reads to be a useful tool to not only find more works from authors that I am familiar with, but to branch out into works and genres that would have eluded me completely.
PinkDynamite22's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 5/8/18 6:02 AM
Goodreads is a great app for tracking your reading and books. It allows you to mark books that you are currently reading, have already read, and want to read in the future. You are also able to create custom "shelves" to categorize books in other ways. The Goodreads website has many functions and the app focuses on the book shelves and reviews more than anything else. I do wish the app would allow for the full functionality of the GROUPS feature. It does offer some aspects of the Groups function but, as someone that uses that feature, I have to go to the website in order to get the full use of it. Still, the app does what it is supposed to do and it does it well. One very handy feature is the ability to add books by scanning the bar code. Again, this would be nice to use with the Groups feature. Overall, great app.
Jacqattack12's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 5/8/18 2:47 AM
This is one of my favorite apps of all time! I love having my tbr (to be read) right on my phone so I don’t forget anything when I go to the library. The scanning feature is awesome at the bookstore so I don’t have to buy books or waste space on my phone taking pictures. I also love how the app tells you the number the book is in the series, and if you tap the number the series comes up in a list so you can see all the books, it is very helpful when you see only book 2 on the shelve and you want to know where to start. The only thing is in the recent update when you tap on a book and scroll down you have other books in the series and other books by the author, but the books like this category is gone. That was how I did a majority of my browsing for books and I miss it.

Fogalgesang's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 5/7/18 9:31 PM
Four years ago I was looking for a library manager to keep track of my books. Instead I ended up with Goodreads and originally I didn’t use it as intended as a social platform. I find it very useful for keeping track of books I’ve read and have a special shelf for other books that I want to avoid buying duplicates of. A To Buy shelf keeps a list of books I want to buy. The problem is that my to buy list is only available on line. The height of frustration is to finally be at Powell’s and not have a good internet connection to access my list! I’d like a way to access my list off line or print it.
Nocknamtaken's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 5/7/18 6:14 AM
Every time I open the app, I have to close and reload the app 3-4 times before it finally loads the “home” tab. Everything else will load but the Home. I don’t follow that many people’s reviews so it can’t possibly be overwhelmed by the status and book updates...

I like the concept of tracking the books you read or about to read with a option to explore more. But it needs massive update. It feels like an ancient app and feels like lot of things is not in right place making app little complicated. Would love to see all books together of mine.

1222tiger's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 5/5/18 12:59 PM
Overall the app is decent. The most frustrating thing for me is opening the app and seeing that I have a notification. I open the notifications tab, and see "no new notifications". I can only see notifications regarding giveaways if I go to the actual website, which defeats the purpose of having an app. Updated review: It’s impossible to find how to recommend a book to someone. The only recommendations area I can find on the new app wants you to choose a genre with pre-defined books.

Could be so much better. Why are there not more and better search features in this app by now? Would like to see more plot search options, bookshelves and keyword search options. Why not harness the work the users have put in to assist with this? As Amazon owns Goodreads and seems to be very unfortunately dismantling search options in "forums" used by so many to help find books, it would make sense that they resurrect them in some fashion here. Please add listopia feature to app 5/31/18: Request to Goodreads please add the Listopia lists - ones have created, liked, voted for, friends voted for. This one one of several features not found in app but found in web version, making it my preferred way of using the service.

AMAZING APP! but there should be an update to include all of the listopia lists, not just the featured ones.

I started using goodreads about a year ago, but I stopped for some reason. Then, I wanted to reread a book that I can’t remember the title of. The app makes it easy to log books I’ve read so that it won’t happen again. And they have a discussion group so I’m trying to find the book I’m looking for.
Wonder Woman 619's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 5/29/18 1:40 AM
My favorite app! I was tracking my books in a Wits document in college. This app is genius! One suggestion, would it be possible to give books 1/2 star ratings?

RedHat365's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 5/28/18 2:13 PM
The groups is very difficult to work with on the app, I often have to go to the website. It’s not seamless for a bookclub, and though I use it took look at books, I use Facebook for the book club itself, because it’s too hard to communicate.
Disappearing dashboard's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 5/28/18 1:41 PM
I love the app but I can’t figure out where the stats are (how many pages I’ve read, etc). I can find them on the website so I hope they add it to the app. Other than that I think it is great!
CarlyFranta24357's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 5/27/18 8:59 PM
I love this app but there are several things that could make it even better. I wish the “explore” option hadn’t been removed in this latest update. I also wish you could search by subject or keyword, not just the title or subject. I think it would be cool if there was a way to easily share the release date of a book with your personal calendar on your phone. And just to be picky, it would make things easier if the publication date was listed with the title on your tbr list, instead of just listing the year and having to open the title to get the actual date. Other than that I love it.

Tiferna's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 5/26/18 11:01 AM
Great app to search book ratings but not useful nor user friendly if you actually want to manage your books. You can't move books between shelves and all books must be kept under the "Read" shelf. No way to separate books for you and books for your kids.

YoussefA's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 5/24/18 9:34 AM
This is a great app and platform, and I really enjoy using it. But come on, why does it still have ads?! As an Amazon company, does Goodreads really need to have ads, especially considering that the platform itself serves to help Amazon book sales? There isn't even an option to get rid of the ads, even though I'd happily pay $0.99 to remove them. They just make the app ugly.
bjr23625's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 5/24/18 2:05 PM

brf1948's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 5/23/18 3:03 PM
Goodreads gets me fired up to read, and knowledgeable about what I want to read. It is nice to eliminate books I will not enjoy before I haul them home, and to thoroughly enjoy everything I read. It is very rare I review even a three star - between Goodreads and Netgalley I know what to ask for.
IowaKim's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 5/22/18 5:00 PM
At this point, I’m still trying to figure out how to add dates to the books I’m reading or have read. Some tasks are easier to do on the website. Thank you for your response; it was helpful. Slowly, I’m getting the hang of this app.

Ouanm's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 5/16/18 11:52 AM
I love this app/ site- or I should say I used to love it. Now when I click on an email notification to enter a book giveaway I have to sign in each and every time even if I have the ‘keep me signed in’ box checked, even if I sign in and then click another email immediately following the first one. I can’t enter giveaways through the app either and it’s annoying that this change has happened as before I could click the email for a giveaway and the app/ site would automatically take me to the giveaway signed in- why did this function regress? I do like that I can keep track of my books/ friends’ books/ get Recs on books I may want to read.
CoffeeFanDC's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 5/15/18 2:17 AM
I love this but often have the hardest time finding titles. For example, some books I can’t find if I search by author but they do if I search by title. Or they come up only when I search for half of the title instead of the whole thing.
jasmintss's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 5/14/18 8:47 AM
I can never see my recommendations through the app. It always says unavailable and that I need to rate more books, yet if I go on a computer it shows me the recommended books. It's very frustrating since I don't always want to get on a computer to find new books and I enjoy looking through the recommended page. This has happened all year and I have the app updated. Other than that I have no issues and find this app to be a very useful way to keep track of my reading.
Hannah SuperClark's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 5/14/18 3:30 PM
I love the Goodreads website and have used it for years. Now I’ve had the app for a year, and it’s worked great. I love how customizable the shelves are, and that I can include exactly whatever information about the books that I want to. In the app, though, I do quite miss the Quotes feature. I regularly want to look up or add a quote, but I have to wait until I can access the desktop version first.

Sammyzilla's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 5/12/18 2:22 PM
First if all, the pros: I love that I can scan books into the app to keep up with what I have read. I like being able to connect with friends to see what they are reading and how they reviewed. Cons: In the past couple of months, my list has been scrambled into a chaotic order. I have tried to return it to order by “date added” to no avail. I had several books marked as “want to read”. When I marked them as read, they were marked as read on the date that I put them in the “want to read” list. I like lists, and I also like order. Not there right now. And lastly: I love the quotes when you open the app. I would love to savor them and commit them to memory sometimes. However, it stays on the screen for mere seconds. Only if I had a photographic memory could I read it if it was more than 10 words long. How much trouble would it be to put a “next” button below it? Overall, I like the app, but it has some aggravating issues.

Bnkmiller's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 5/10/18 3:04 AM
I love goodreads, but the app keeping taking random books on my tbr list and saying that I read them! It’s very annoying! Also, my home screen will not load!!!!!!!!!
ChemicalsInTheClouds's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 5/10/18 2:58 AM
First - let me say I love goodreads. I love how easy it is to track the books I’ve read, authors I love, etc. For a bookworm like me - goodreads is an excellent platform! I do, however, have 3 bones to pick with goodreads - 3 things I think would take goodreads from good to phenomenal. 1. New releases! Why is there not a page where you can see upcoming releases for all the series you’ve read?? I would love to have 2018 releases all consolidated in one place rather than having to rely on the want to read bookshelf that may include older books or going to each author’s page. If I’ve read all the books in a series that are currently out, I’d love to see what’s coming out this year. 2. Updating dates I’ve read books. For some reason, I tend to finish a lot of books on planes and the kindle app doesn’t upload the date I finished the book later when I connect to a network. Online, it’s easy to add those dates in later, but in the app it’s near impossible! I typically have to get on my computer or go to goodreads in the mobile browser and then select full site. It’s very frustrating and as a result, a lot of my finished books don’t have dates attached. 3. Progress on the annual reading challenge. I love that the app’s been updated to show you your progress, but what I don’t love is that it doesn’t tell you how many books ahead/behind you are like it does on the website.
Shireeeeeebagginssssss's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 5/1/18 11:24 PM
Your app would be the literal coolest if you implemented a way to do the quizzes!! One thing I love about your website when on desktop is taking the quizzes other readers have created. If myself and others could do that through your app we’d be so happy. Please add quizzes to your next update! And add a feature so we can create quizzes in the app as well.

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.
Mintdove's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 4/9/18 1:48 AM
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!

AechArt3mis's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 4/8/18 7:39 PM
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.
jenny9581's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 4/8/18 11:27 PM
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.

Dangrdonna's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 4/7/18 6:05 PM
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.

Safetysteveone's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 4/6/18 9:22 PM
I read what I expected. Mrs. Clinton ownership of what happened along with her team was explained thoroughly and concise. I understand more of what happened and saddened by how our political system is so ingrained in divisive attitudes. I pray for our leadership to do what is right for our country and what is ethically right. I was a little bored listening to the constant repetition of the same situations that happened with Comey, email misunderstandings, attitudes of Trump voters and press attacks. I think if Mrs. Clinton would have used her husbands saying “it’s the economy stupid” in her own words we may have had a female President. I have a greater understanding of how Americans keep failing to progress.
Zhies's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 4/6/18 4:33 PM
Kevin Anderson and Doug Beason wrote Trinity Paradox, which is one of the best sci fi books I ever read. The Ill Wind book is a big disappointment. The theme is good: and oil tanker breaks apart and designer microbes are used to try to cope with the spill. It all goes wrong. They say that good editors can “remove all those parts that readers skip over”. This book desperately needed such an editor. The last 150 pages of this 550 page book were more engaging and brought my rating up to 3*.

D-Pal's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 4/30/18 12:14 PM
I’ve been using Goodreads for a few years now, and I’ve been satisfied with its ability to track my reading. I’ve particularly enjoyed the reading goals it allows you to set and track against. However, I’ve been less than impressed with the search and discovery experience as well as the social aspect. While the annual votes Goodreads lists as well as the reviews are helpful, the site doesn’t seem to be making the most of its millions of members in terms of curating recommendations for others. My number one complaints is that the search capability couldn’t be more basic. I wish it was more flexible in terms of searching, especially in terms of them or content. For example, the types of search terms I’d expect to be supported include - ‘books where animals speak’ or ‘Harlem renaissance.’
MarmaladeLibby's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 4/3/18 5:05 AM
I love being able to go into this app to instantly search for a book, look at my lists, explore what's new out there and even write my reviews right from the app! Very convenient. It certainly has room for improvement of course...as both a librarian & book blogger I get very frustrated & I wish you could see both the publisher info & publisher date all the time on books in the app. Plus, it needs to have a rereading option that counts the book for the year and notes how many times you’ve read it but that’s it.

Here’s the skinny:'s Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 3/9/18 2:06 PM
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🤓.

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 🙄
rokinrev's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 3/31/18 12:37 PM
However, the app is not as good or easy to maneuver as the webpage. Still have to go to webpage to pick up my shelves or make a pin, so not much has changed since I first reviewed it —————- 3/22/18 I am choosing to reload this based solely on the writeup of the latest version. I don’t suffer fools so I’ll give it a week —— 3/31/2018 This “upgraded version” is worse... can’t find anything I need so back to a link on the tablet faves
Adamalhinton's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 3/30/18 6:02 AM
I love that I have a central place to keep track of all the books I’ve listen to and read, and connecting with other like-minded readers is invaluable in finding new material. However, I wish there were other rating options such as moral value, reading level, and a parental guide. But, even though it is not perfect, Good Reads works for me.

I have been a member since 2012. It is cool having a place to keep track of the books I want to read. I make regular updates so that everyone knows I am really reading them. But no one cares!
Birdsong 69's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 3/28/18 8:50 AM
Good Reads is useful and relatively easy to use. Would like to find better ways to sort out the books in my library. Possible I just haven't figured it all out, but would like to be able to sort books in order that they were published as well as aquired and by author Walking shadow is typical Parker. Well described, so you feel your learning the charactèrs and the locations and can picture who's doing what, where they are doing it and begin to paint a picture of the reason for the crime and who might fit that reason
Efaustin's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 3/28/18 8:22 PM
So goodreads is a great app and has many recommendations that help me. My Ideas: I wish in the reading challenge that when I reread books it would still be in the reading challenge for the year as a new book. I also want to delete books that I said I read, sometimes I accidentally clicked read and on the reading challenge it says I read it but I don’t.
B.O'Connor's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 3/28/18 1:43 PM
Like that you can control when your activity shows up on Facebook or not (though how can you see where book activity shows up on FB? Can't tell). And all the shelves you can add are great. Would be great if you could export your book list in case GoodReads goes away one day, but can't remember if I looked into it, so I'll have to... Thank you to Goodreads though for an amazingly useful app!
FayBot's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 3/28/18 10:08 PM

Beto El Traductor Magnifico's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 3/27/18 11:25 PM
I don’t understand how anyone could read this crap. This first person novel reads like the journal of a sixth grader. The plot is serpentine, uninteresting and tiresome. How this woman has garnered a reputation as a writer is a mystery to me. She has no ability to describe either emotions or environment. Her main character is without any real character.She is flat as a tire slashed on a Chicago Street At the end of a laborious, tiresome, boring, stupid, ridiculous, plot line, she tosses off a one night stand with a deputy in Lawrence Kansas. No description of the interaction. Just one thing leads to another. When she gets up showers puts on her clothes and leaves town This is A page turner all right. Preferably you are turning the pages sitting next to a high-volume fan. Luckily I have a candle and a fairly active thumb. Please God let it be over. Do something else for a living please. Herb Evans
M T.'s Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 3/26/18 2:46 PM
This helps me find new friends and new books to read. I don’t have enough time to browse shelves at a bookstore, so I use this app to find books to read. I also love seeing what other people are reading. I would recommend downloading this app.
Unreal32's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 3/26/18 1:52 PM
There are a few things that are annoying in this otherwise-excellent app: First, it would be great if you could see more folders than just three without needing to click "More" each time you categorize a book; Second, it would be nice to be able to batch edit your bookshelf -- for example, click Edit and then Select or something like that and then add a selection of books to a folder all at once; and then third, add a specific list already created in Amazon to a To Read list in Goodreads. I love the capability to scan books and the search capabilities but these little things would make the app even better.

Ssfzz's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 3/2/18 3:49 AM
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.
Toomanybarts's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 3/19/18 10:53 PM
Recommendations are a PITA as they insist on using cover flow vs a grid of book covers. Even Apple retired that functionality as cumbersome. 3/18/18 UPDATE - it’s still 1982 in GoodReads land!
Shockles's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 3/18/18 6:15 AM
Very good app, but sifting through hundreds of titles is very slow and tedious on the iOS app. Also, the app is often slow to populate, but I often have connection issues so I assume that’s not the fault of the developers.

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.
myreminderofyou's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 3/16/18 6:26 AM
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!!
Dale Rodgers's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 3/16/18 5:36 PM
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. Got a

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.
Cougarwitch's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 3/15/18 12:20 PM
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.
Moms1166's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 3/15/18 11:34 PM

flute music's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 3/14/18 6:02 PM
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.
JudyAH's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 3/14/18 2:38 PM

darbpk's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 3/1/18 12:45 AM
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.

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!
TheDarkMusePoetry's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 2/26/18 2:52 AM
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.

bfchris's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 2/25/18 9:14 PM
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.
Teratogen's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 2/25/18 8:33 PM
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!

Jjgibby's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 2/23/18 3:46 AM
I love Bruce Springsteen. I saw him perform for almost 4 hours with one break 40 years ago. He puts his heart and soul into everything he does. This book is no exception. You root for him for 500 pages and even though you think you know where it’s going, you really don’t. He wants to get everything exactly right. He does know and he does care, and he feels the heavy weight and responsibility of being a rock and roll messiah. He also feels the weight of heavy family issues, especially with his father. The Boss never sought to be a mile wide and an inch deep. More like a mile wide and a mile deep. As his songs demonstrate, the man can paint a starkly honest panorama with heartfelt words. He does it again with his story. I started with a four star review, because in stretches the book seemed humorless. But you don’t downgrade Faulkner for not writing like Vonnegut. Springsteen did it his way as he always does. He reveals a lot about himself, more than I expected, and takes you to another world, his world, with genius, hard work, shortcomings and mental illness all racing toward the horizon. It’s well worth a read.

I have loved everything, expect one thing, about this app: 1. Logically designed for general use 2. Logical design for reviewing books 3. Great success using the scanner to find and add books 4. Simple and encouraging challenges for reading more 5. Though I haven't read enough for the app to give solid recommendations, I've appreciated what I've seen so far in attempts. The only thing that I've had trouble with was updating my completed books for my challenge. At first my challenge wasn't updating so I had to seek out Dr. Google to figure it out. Now that I've figured it out it isn't bad; I just have to do a little more leg work (adding the date I read the book.... so hard...😅😉) to ensure I get credit.

One of my most used apps.

You can’t change this in the settings either. Yes, it’s a minor gripe, but I hope it will be updated in a future version.
Whatbelllllllsaid's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 2/20/18 12:17 PM
This does the job, I guess. But it's often times slow, and shouldn't lag as much as it does. Like, this needs to be as sleek, smooth, and easy to scroll through and change tabs as the Letterboxd app. That should be this company's endgoal. I hate it the most while I'm trying to search for books and decide to click on a different tab at the bottom, and when I go back to the search tab to continue typing whatever, it erases it and returns to displaying the default "Explore" page. Ugh. And speaking of, that page is almost f***ing useless. It's the same exact "Featured Lists" featuring the same exact books. Give us some variety! Give us "Trending Lists/Reviews/Reviewers/Books". New books that are being released that month, etc etc. This app is so old-fashioned and clunky. The Kindle app even has that option where you can see different "popular" reviews. It just basically shows your friends' activity feeds and your feed. AND SPEAKING OF, I hate how they only show a limited amount of your recent updates. Like at the bottom of your profile, it just ends and never gives you the rest. Come the f*($ ON! 😩 Also you can't even see all the shelves of a user! It just literally ends... wherever, alphabetically. A flop app, the more I think about it.

I love Goodreads, and I love how easy it is on the app to update my progress in books, and the dates I started and finished them. I like the feature added recently of putting more than one read date for reread books, and the feature which allows you to scan books and add them to your library is cool. The only thing which put it down from five stars to for, is that you can't add quotes via the app (if you can I haven't figured it out yet, but I've tried.)
NASA_Caley's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 2/2/18 1:32 AM
I find the goodreads app very frustrating. Among the reasons I got on goodreads was because some of my book clubs members really heavily use it. So I created a group for us. The webpage has some good features for the group, but the app is pretty much useless. I can’t see what books we’ve put on or add new people to the group. Which makes it useless for when we are having the discussion at the end of book club about what books people have designated as being interested in reading for the next month, when we’re all on our 📱 and no one has a 💻...

I'm a long time user of Goodreads and I love the website. Unfortunately the app is not like the site at all, especially now that Goodreads had gone through a great redesign. For example, finding a book through an author's page is horrendously difficult. There's no sensible order and you can't search by series. It's so much more difficult to discover books on the app. The only feature I truly like the app for is scanning to add a book - otherwise I'll just wait to use Goodreads on my computer if I actually want to take advantage of the features. All the 5 star reviews talk about how great Goodreads is for logging and tracking books - but that's the basicest feature of the website and pretty much the only thing you can do in the app. If you're using the app more than the site - you're missing out BIG TIME.

This new version makes it even easier to rate my current read faster!, I also love this app because it allows me to keep up with what books I still want to read and what books I have read and how I rated them.

I have been using Goodreads for years. With reading being one of my passions the opportunities are endless for learning about everything books. I love interacting with friends and having the endless data base for lookups and documenting my reading list. I could go on and on with personal challenges and give a ways too. Love Goodreads.

Since the new update, I can’t open the app. Well, there are many duplicates to this idea anyway. Might as well hop on those. They just might work!

This app is awesome! In 2011, I stopped logging my books on calendars and started tracking everything on Goodreads and it did everything I needed until a recent update. The update gave us an awesome new feature which now allows us to track our re-reads! Yes!!!!! Bu-u-u-t..... I now lost most of my recent read dates and all of my re-reads after 2013. AND I DIDN'T KEEP A PAPER COPY!!!! 😭😭😭😭

It does what I need it to do. What else can you ask for?

Goodreads is like a special friend I can turn to when I need some help in selecting my next book. They know what I like to read and can give me tips on why I would like the book/s. If I can’t get to the book right away, it keeps a list of books I that I noted I would like previously.

Nice app. Surely of value to many readers. However, they spam you with unwanted emails. Despite unsubscribing multiple times, deleting the app, disconnecting it from Amazon and other entities, and deleting my account, the unwanted emails persist. I should not have to write this one-star rating. They should honor my attempts to disconnect the app. I don’t recommend it; they are collecting data from you to sell and market. There are better apps that respect your privacy and don’t send you spam.

All I wanted was the stats page that shows how many books and pages I read this year. I couldn't find it or it doesn't exist. Promptly deleted the app.

Really useful guy to find good books and quotes
Ci0024's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 2/1/18 10:56 PM
My favorite website too. I only wish that when rating titles, the meanings of each of the star levels would display on the app. I find that, because I don't have them memorized, I often have to wait until I'm at my computer to rate titles I've read. I'd rather do it from my phone. Other than that it's perfect. In fact, it's the app/site I'll miss the most once net neutrality is a thing of the past.

She’s so real! I love it just that the stories all over the place, organization could have been better

I love the app and use it regularly, but recently I have been having a problem with the book description. When reading the book description, I choose the “read more” option and more of the description expands. However, there is then a second “read more” option and it does not work. Thus, I can’t fully read the book description. The end is hidden and it will not expand to open. I have deleted the app. Rebooted my phone and re-downloaded the app. Same problem. I have an iPhone and currently using iOS 11.4.1 (15G77).

I love the app and think it is necessary for readers, however it needs to be updated. I looked at new releases this month, and some came out months ago!
Ant Double's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 12/9/17 5:32 AM
Great app that keeps track of books I've read and those I want to read. It provides lots of helpful suggestions for books I may want to read. Plus keeping track of my progress in the books I'm currently reading definitely motivates me to read more. I love it!

I wish I’d had this when I started reading, and, yes, I mean as a kid.
Another Book Lover's Review of GoodreadsReviewed on 12/9/17 1:27 PM
Being a latecomer to Goodreads, I find myself going back again and again, yet feeling frustrated. Of course it’s a great place to keep track of your reading, and the reviews and collective understanding of the members are wonderful. They are thorough and thoughtful. Yet I find myself frustrated by two main disappointments. First, in making my list of books already read, inevitably I’ve added books that I’ve read as an “assignment” or on recommendation that I have NOT enjoyed, or a genre that I no longer have much involvement with (e.g. YA), yet it seems those books keep coming up in the app’s recommendations - “because you’ve read....” It would be great to be able to record the book but not have it trigger further recommendations. Second, and more importantly, I miss having a place to make personal notes and still keep an outside list of books where I have notes.
