One of that is the following (for example):

Inténtelo haciendo la búsqueda <b>menos específica</b>. por ejemplo, use sólo el apellido del autor y una sola palabra del título.<p>Para ver el registro completo, pulse «Mostrar detalles».

If I copy the URL and put it on a browser, goodreads match a result:

Thank you in advanced.

The issue is the goodreads search engine, or at least the way I am calling it anyways. If you put that URL in your browser you will see that it only returns one match (or at least it does for me) and as per the log output it is for the english title of the book.

The plugin has logic within it that compares the title of the book in the search result with the title you are searching for and rejects it if not close enough, which is what you are seeing in the log output. This logic has to be in there because otherwise the search engine can give you results for "related" books instead which are not the book you are after and your library would be full of mismatched metadata for the wrong book.

If you want to get a match from Goodreads for foreign language books, then you need to get the ISBN for the book (either using the Extract ISBN plugin or putting it in via other means such as from metadata or manually). The search process will then bypass the title match check within the plugin, as it assumes a match on ISBN will be for the right book.
