Review Policy

Thank you for reading my review policy!

If you are an author/ publisher/publicist who would like to submit a book for review, here are some things you might be interested in:

Book reviews and opinions expressed on Willing To See Less are my own and are never influenced in any way. I don't feel obligated to write a positive review because I receive a book for free. Also, I am not a professional reviewer. I am a passionate reader and my only intention is to share my thoughts on books I read.

Books reviewed on WTSL are either bought with my own money, borrowed from the library, and if there is a review request from the author/publisher for which I receive an ARC, it's clearly stated in the post. I receive no monetary compensation for my reviews and never intend to ask for one.

Genres of interest:
YA fiction prevails on WTSL, but my reading tastes extend further than that. The majority of books reviewed on WTSL are YA, but I also read and review a variety of adult fiction and non-fiction books. My favorite genres are fantasy and science fiction.

My favorite review requests include a blurb or summary and maybe an excerpt, places where to find you around the web, and show that you know my name (it's Ivana) or the name of my blog (it's Willing to See Less). It tells me you're not randomly emailing bloggers, but really think my blog would be a good match for your book. That's a great start for both sides.

Due to time restrictions, I cannot accept every review request I receive, even if it's something I'm interested in, but in most such cases, I'll do my best to set up an interview with the author or showcase the book in some other way. As of April 2013 I will accept fewer review books. No hard feelings if I decline, it's become humanly impossible to read all the books in a timely manner. I usually post reviews around release day, and read and review the book within a month.

Reviews are posted here on WTSL, Goodreads, The Book Depository, and Amazon.

I accept all formats. Being an 'international' blogger (I'm in Croatia), I understand that postage prices are high. Books sent to me for review will never be redistributed or sold. I also don't make a difference between self-publishing and mainstream publishing, but decide on book-to-book basis.

If you are interested in blog stats, I will be happy to provide them. I use and Google Analytics. All links are placed at the bottom of the page.

If you want me to review your book, feel free to contact me. Visit my Contact page for information on where to find me. If there's anything you'd like to ask, email me.

My reviews are copyrighted material. I invest the little spare time I have in reading and reviewing books. If you wish to use my reviews for promotional or other purposes, please contact me for permission.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you!
