Definitely Has Potential

BookSloth appears to be an up and coming alternative to Goodreads and I’m excited to see how it grows from here.

I’m enjoying it so far, the UI is intuitive and visually appealing. I like how straight-forward a process it is to add a title to your library. However, the app still needs a few tweaks. The search function leaves much to be desired. When I search a title, it rarely appears as the first result. Usually something completely unrelated appears before it. And just a suggestion, there should be more reading elements to pick from when reviewing books (i.e. humor).

I can’t wait until you have the GR import up and running. It’ll make it things a lot easier.

Thank you for your feedback. The search is something we want to improve and the reading elements is definitely something we want to expand on. We are gathering everyone's feedback and making a list of priorities for the next updates. We are currently testing the GR Import and hope to enable it this week. :)

“Personal recommendations” not very personal

I downloaded this in hopes of finding an app that offered actual personal recommendations based on books that I’ve liked and rated highly. This says that it gives you personal recommendations, but looking through the list they do not look very personal at all… they are mostly newly released books that have one rating.
I’m also not a fan of the “discover” section, which prioritizes genres that are not genres I’m interested in.
When searching, many of the books I’ve read and searched for don’t even appear in the results. Also in relation to the searches, when i type in the exact title, the book doesn’t appear until the 4th or 5th result… again, appearing to prioritize new books with fewer reviews.
I think this app would be great for someone who is looking for new release recommendations. I think the discussion feature is a cool idea with a lot of potential, but more reviews are needed to make this useful.

Still Exploring

I’m really happy to have found this app! Goodreads feels outdated and has so much to improve, and BookSloth seems to have already honed in on aspects that are important for book lovers. The fact that the first thing that pops up in my homepage is book lists separated by minority authors had me falling in love the moment I opened the app. I’ve been really wanting to widen my exposure to Black and Latino authors and I’ve already added multiple books to my “To Be Read” shelf.

Some things that I think still need improvement include the implementation of author profiles. When I click on an author, the only thing I can see is the different books that they published but I can’t see any information about them beyond that or a picture of them. I believe that would be a great addition to the platform.

I also hope that eventually there can be more options to create original shelves. I like to separate the books that I want to read into separate categories which doesn’t seem like something I can do on this app yet.

Anyway, this app shows a lot of potential, and I can’t wait to see what improvements are implemented in the updates!
