Discover books by mood

In the mood for something adventurous, funny, and fast-paced? What about a darker, slower, more emotional read?

Mix and match our comprehensive set of filters to choose your next perfect book.

Screenshot of The StoryGraph's homepage with two rows of books covers. The top row is titled 'To-Read Pile' and the bottom row is titled 'Recommendations'. Overlayed, on the left, is the mobile view of a filter menu. There are options to select mood, pace, fiction or nonfiction, and genres.

Read with friends

Add live reactions to specific parts of the book without fear of spoilers. Comments are locked for other participants until they reach that point in their reading.

Don't have people to read with? We’ve got machine learning-powered suggestions for great reading buddies.

Screenshot of an in-progress buddy read on The StoryGraph. On the top left is a small thumbnail of the cover of Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall. To the right is information about who is hosting the buddy read and when it ends. Underneath are 4 white panes arranged in two rows of two, each showing a participant's username, profile picture, and how far in the book they are, by way of a green progress bar. Underneath is a snippet of the discussion. There is a green progress bar showing the comments relate to 10% into the book. Someone has commented on adjusting to Mantel's writing and another participant has replied saying that their college studies have helped them get used to it more quickly.
