  • Born To Run

    By Jjgibby
    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.
  • Perfect! Just missing one thing...

    By BetterThanItSounds
    I love this app! I love that you can scan books into it for easy cataloging, I love that I can use it while doing unnecessary book shopping to make sure I don’t buy what I already have. I love that I can update my progress on books in the app. It’s literally missing just one thing - the ability to enter dates on my activity for a book showing I’ve re-read it. I know I can edit when I first started and finished a book, but I can’t add more dates as I re-read books, which is all I tend to be doing lately. I know I can add these dates on the site (which, tbh it’s really difficult to get to the page I need to enter re-read dates, so that could be improved, too), but, while a majority of my books are actually physical books, I do have a lot of kindle and audio books that I consume on my phone, so when I finish them, it would be nice to be able to update my activity with a re-read date while I’ve already got my nose stuck in front of my phone. My rating is a 4 out of 5, but I will gladly give it a perfect 5 if that missing feature can be added!
  • Group messages cryptic

    By zoomcity
    The app is convenient. I use it daily. There are a few things I wish the app could handle—Input on book recommendations, for instance. I am never going to read that book. Dealing with it on my phone’s tiny browser is frustrating. But that’s among the “some day” hopes, and it’s not a big deal. I wish I could quote messages to make it clear which message I’m replying to: someday, I hope. I wish I could link to books in my messages like the “big kids” do with their computers. Again, maybe in the future. They’ve recently changed the way I see group messages from the notification tab, however. I used to see the bottom of the list of messages (most recent). Now I see a random message from the middle of the thread and have to scroll down to see the newest messages. A pointless change. By far the worst feature of this app is reading messages. They frequently have words missing from the message. I don’t know why. I have to deduce the meaning. Sometimes if there’s a hyperlink in the message, resting my finger on the link will make the missing words appear. But not always, and not all messages have hyperlinks, anyway. It’s a huge deficiency.
  • My Personal Bookshelf

    By Here’s the skinny:
    Goodreads had been a part of my life for 8 years now. It’s like having your own virtual library. I manage all my “reads” in different shelves; Want To Read, Read, Favorites etc. I use this app on all my devices. When I need to search a book or author, it’s the 1st place I turn to. I use it as a memory hack and add books I’m interested in or are recommended so I can refer to the list when I want to purchase a book. There’s a personal, annual book challenge/goals you can set for yourself. I follow friends and family to see what’s on their reading list. I’ve been fortunate to receive a new authors’ book in the giveaways they offer. Did I mention the many book clubs you can join -or create your own? Or the best Read genres list? Yeah, even the reviews are informative and interactive. Use this app. It not only works flawlessly, It’s the best source to gather and store all your book baggage ... because there just isn’t enough books in your life🤓.
  • This could be better

    By digitaltease
    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!
  • This Side of Center Encore by J. A. Willoughby

    By Corinea D.
    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.
  • Missing a few features

    By its_brb
    This would be a five star app for me if it had the following: an option to abandon books and not have to include them count as read books, want to be read (no thanks, I abandoned it for a reason) or currently reading. I know I can add an abandoned shelf but it has to be marked as one of the main three and I wish it would be its own separate thing so it could still be listed under my books. The next one may be hard to add but I wish you could add who recommended the book to you on the app. Most times I am adding books while listening to a book podcast and don’t have my computer by me so I will never remember who told me about the book. I’ve made a compromise by creating shelves based on which podcast has recommended it but I really wish there were another way to do this. Otherwise, this app is the most frequently used app on my phone and has connected me with so many new and old friends through books and I really love it for that.
  • I wanted to love this app

    By Serendipity2012
    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.
  • Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine

    By Ellenchka
    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.
  • Loading takes forever, “Read more” doesn’t let you.

    By Violinknitter
    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!!!!
