Because life's too short for a book you're not in the mood for

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


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 personalised 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.

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.

Does The StoryGraph have a mobile app?

Yes! We're on the App Store and the Play Store. And if we're not available in your country, you can download our app from our website.


Will I be able to import my data from Goodreads?

You sure can! 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.

Is The StoryGraph free to use?

It is, and the bulk of the site will always be free to use. We do have a paid Plus plan for users looking for a more enhanced, personalised experience!

Who is behind The StoryGraph?

The StoryGraph is run and built by Nadia Odunayo and Rob Frelow. It started life as a personal side project of Nadia's to create and track progress through reading lists, but after lots of customer research it started evolving into what the product has become today.
