The YA shelf. (n. d.). Retrieved from http://www.theyashelf.com/
Summary: The YA Shelf is a community of young adult authors, readers, and book lovers. There are reviews, YA resources, and a list of best books for teens. Users can filter reviews by category.
Appeal: I like that the reviews are grouped together into separate posts: Fantasy, Dystopian, Paranormal Romance, etc. Some reviews are more comprehensive than others, but for the most part, they seem to be decent reviews. I like the note on the site that states that, while the reviews are fair, they are also critical.
Weaknesses: On the “Review Policy/Submit” page, it states that if a book was hated by the reviewer (earning any less than 3 stars), it will not be posted online. I enjoy reading positive reviews, but sometimes, I like to read a negative review, and by not posting any negative reviews, I feel like I’m missing out.
