The StoryGraph - Wikipedia

The StoryGraph (sometimes shortened to just "StoryGraph") is a social cataloguing web platform for books, serving as a competitor of Goodreads (an Amazon-owned social cataloguing platform). The StoryGraph received awareness after Book Riot covered the platform's assets, including more personalized recommendations for readers, customized ratings options (including half-star and quarter-star ratings), and its non-affiliation with Amazon. The StoryGraph uses a freemium model, with some features only available in the paid subscription plan.
