Today I am going to discuss an alternative to Goodreads for those trying not to use Amazon’s services as much.
If you were not aware, Goodreads an Amazon company, and if you follow me on there, you may have noticed that I haven’t updated it in some time and that’s because I’ve been using StoryGraph. I was introduced to StoryGraph reading the blogs of Misty from Misty’s Book Space and Kristin from Kristin Kraves Books. StoryGraph is similar to Goodreads in the way that you can still keep track of what you read. StoryGraph is also much different in the sense that it goes deeper than just the number of books you read, how many pages you read, your highest rated book, your lowest rated book, your longest book, and your shortest book. The StoryGraph tracks your mood, pace, categories, and genres you read. StoryGraph has more options when reviewing books. There are options for whether or not the book is character or plot-driven, a mix of both, if the characters are likable or not, how diverse the cast is, character development, and whether or no the flaws of the main character are the main focus. Another feature of StoryGraph that I As I’ve been using StoryGraph more, I’m liking it much better than Goodreads, and I’ve been using Goodreads since 2010-2011ish.
Do you use StoryGraph? Why or why not? You can also follow me here.
