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. :)
Love the app
I think this app is great, is obviously similar to goodreads but i love the style so much better. Unfortunately this is a small community with the app right now, so I SINCERELY hope more people will start using it. It has challenges too so thats always fun. The only thing i can say i dont really like is that it only has maybe half my bookshelf, so you’ll have to suggest a book (in the app you can suggest books for them to post so you can add it to your collection) just so that way you can search it to add it. Other than that its a really great app i hope the community grows too.
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 Goodreads feels outdated and has so much to improve, and BookSloth seems to have already honed in on aspects that are important for book lovers.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!
