A non-official client for Goodreads (

Project Description

A lightweight wrapper around the Goodreads API


$ pip install goodreads_api_client


>>> import goodreads_api_client as gr
>>> client = gr.Client(developer_key='<YOUR_DEVELOPER_KEY>')
>>> book ='1128434')
>>> keys_wanted = ['id', 'title', 'isbn']
>>> reduced_book = {k:v for k, v in book.items() if k in keys_wanted}
>>> reduced_book
{'id': '1128434', 'title': 'The Last Wish (The Witcher, #1)', 'isbn': '0575077832'}



There are a number of Goodreads API wrapper libraries out there, but most are either abandoned or the code is some combination of odd, undocumented, untested, or incomplete in its API coverage.
