Welcome to Why Choose? A Reverse Harem Book Tracker.
Do you find it increasingly difficult to find reverse harem books on Amazon? Tired of trying to guess which books have all the men and which don’t thanks to the restrictions put on authors when listing their books?
Yeah, I did too.
I started creating a list, and then I casually asked a friend how hard it would be to create an app, and a few months later, Why Choose? was created.
Why Choose? is a database of all the reverse harem books available on Amazon (or as close to as we can make it—new books and authors are being added every single day!) in one convenient place. But it’s more than just that. Every book is added with a ‘tag’, which means this database is searchable. If you want a paranormal romance featuring a vampire and BDSM, provided those tags are there, you will find it.
There are currently 8,530 books in this database—now there’s a reader challenge and a half!
This is a database. If you came here looking for free books, you’re in the wrong place. While we have the links to the books, they lead to Amazon (or an actual legitimate retailer where the author has taken their books out of KU). Any site which let’s you read these books for free is a pirate site and we do not advocate that here.
Now we have that out of the way…
Why Choose? is free to use. You don’t even need to sign up to browse the books. However, if you do sign up, you get to subscribe to authors or the books. You can either choose to have a notification on the release date of every book your favorite author releases, or you can choose to get a notification for the next book in the series.
We also have added tags for Trigger Warnings. While we can’t guarantee that every book has them, we’re trying hard to get them added. With Trigger Warning Tags, you can go to your profile, click a button, and no book with that particular tag will show up in your search. Or, if you have a trigger but you can read books containing it provided you are prepared for it, we’ve created a setting so you get a warning to let you know that book has the content which triggers you.
You can browse authors, books, and series. There’s a random book option, a wicked search option, and you can add books to your Read list, TBR list, and you can create your own private lists. Ratings and reviews are encouraged, and they also conveniently help you post them to Amazon—we also made it so that when you log in, you can pick your default store. We’ve also added a book notes section where you can write your own comments to help you keep track of what you’ve read.
Another feature is that you can add books (I tried my best, but I’m sure there’s some that slipped through the net), and you can add tags. If the author is signed up, they will moderate any tag suggestions, and if they’re not, we have a team of mods ready to get the books updated.
Readers sign up here
Want to claim your books? Please do! We want you to come in and check the tags. When this was populated, the tags came from one person trying to guess what was in your book based on your blurb. Tags will probably have been missed and there’s a possibility that something was tagged wrongly.
You also get to add some links to your bio pages – Facebook, Twitter, TikTok and a whole host of other options. Once your profile has been claimed, it will get verified and you will be able to make amends. If a reader suggests a tag, you get final say on if it’s appropriate.
Authors sign up here
The whole purpose of this is to help authors find readers and readers to find their next book boyfriends. This works best with conversation—we want you to go recommend these books in all the Facebook groups (in fact, here’s a list of them to join, but be aware they will have questions for you to answer to make sure you’re not a bot). We’ve created share links for you to recommend the hell out of the books you’ve found and loved. Please pimp these books out. Also, feel free to pimp this site out too!
This site is free. We’re going to keep it free. But we are using affiliate links (because building an app isn’t cheap). This means, when you click on a link, it will take you to your Amazon store and if you choose to buy a book, we get a few pennies from Amazon. This does not affect how much an author earns, nor does it change the price of what you pay. Which, if you’re in KU, is nothing but your monthly subscription anyway! And don’t worry, we can’t see what you’ve purchased either!
Hopefully, we’ve made this user friendly, but if you can think of any way to improve the site, please let us know—even if it’s as simple as you think we need to create a new tag!
