Goodreads is a free website for book lovers. Imagine it as a large library that you can wander through and see everyone's bookshelves, their reviews, and their ratings. You can also post your own reviews and catalog what you have read, are currently reading, and plan to read in the future. Don’t stop there – join a discussion group, start a book club, contact an author, and even post your own writing.
Or, go to What Should I Read Next? Enter a book you like and the site will analyze our huge database of real readers' favorite books to provide book recommendations and suggestions for what to read next.
The Blender is a tool meant to help readers find books that include more than one genre. Using the Blender is easy -- simply pick two or three genres you are interested in and click the "BLEND" button. If you look at the results, you will notice that some genres will appear in ALL CAPS. This means that the genre is very prominent in the blend. Other genres might be listed in lowercase letters. This means that the genre is a part of the book, but not dominant in the story.
