Goodreads: Book reviews, recommendations, and discussion   

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.

WHICHBOOK

Whichbook offers book recommendations based on select choices – mood, emotion, plot shape, type of main character, country the book is set in, and more.
