The StoryGraph helps you track your reading and choose your next book based on your mood and your favorite topics and themes.

Import your Goodreads data: We will import all of your currently-reading, read, to-read, and did-not-finish shelves. Any custom shelves will be mapped to a custom tag on The StoryGraph.

Discover books by mood: In the mood for something adventurous, funny, and fast-paced? What about a darker, slower, more emotional book? Whatever you're in the mood for, mix and match our comprehensive set of filter options to find a book just right for you.

Get smart personalized recommendations: Our machine learning AI is like your trusted go-to friend for book recommendations. Communicate with it so it can understand your reading preferences in detail and then find the best matches for you, whatever you're in the mood for.

Simple tracking and insightful stats: As you track what you're reading, learn about the type of books you gravitate towards the most with our wide range of charts and graphs. You can see how your reading develops over time and use that information to help you pick better books.

Reading Challenges: Want to read one book from every country in the world? Or how about read a book per week across a range of genres? Our reading challenges feature help you set up personal goals or join in with others.

Custom Tags: Enhance your book tracking and discovery by making use of our custom tags feature. You can search and filter books by your tags and share curated lists with friends.

Content Warnings: When you review a book, you can let us know if there's any content within it that might be triggering for others. Then, when searching for your next read, all of this information is at your disposal.

incredible tool for readers!!

i love this app so much!! i heard about it on tiktok & immediately downloaded it. i’ve been using it for about a week or two now & it’s so so amazing!! the features & interface are so so great and it’s evident that the people involved in making the app love reading & have a passion for this project. there’s nothing i don’t love. I know it’s a work in progress so i’m super excited for things like the reading recommendations to become even more personalized, and for more nuanced privacy settings!! i use this app pretty much daily. it’s made reading even more fun, and i’ve told everyone I know about it. i love to put in my TBR, update my reading progress w my current reads & use the private journal to list my thoughts, see what my friends are reading through the community tab, and organize all my TBR, owned books, DNF’d books, etc, with tags. if you like reading even a little, try storygraph!!!

So much to love!!

I love so many things about this all! I love that you can do half and quarter stars and all the options when reviewing! I love the break down of stats! The main thing I don’t like is that you can’t see whole follows you! This makes me extremely uncomfortable! I also love connecting with people over reading and have friends and being able to interact with them on a site like this I love! I am able to do that on goodreads which I really appreciate and feel like I can create more of a community! I love being able to interact with my friends and see what they are reading and if it’s a book I love I love being able to comment on their update. I know the creators have said they don’t want this to be a social media website which is why they won’t let you see who your friends are. But I think the social aspect of reading is really fun! I truly love this app so much and it has so many amazing features but I really hate that you can’t see who you’re friends are and who is following you. It makes me extremely uncomfortable as a woman.

Way more user friendly than good reads !!

I love this app! I was trying to find an app that would help me get more into reading and I stumbled upon good reads. When I got that app I was severely disappointed and frustrated with the app design. It was hard to use and didn’t motivate me to track my reading in anyway. I was searching for an alternative app to get me into reading and I stumbled upon StoryGraph! I fell in love immediately! It’s so user friendly and motivates me to track my progress, not only that it gives amazing suggestions off of what you like to read. It even has different folders where you can store the books you have in your library, books you need to read, and books you are currently reading. I really love StoryGraph!
