What Readers are Saying About Hidden Gems

Hidden Gems is great! Initially, you specify which genres you prefer and each week, you get a choice of books. You can read as many or as few books as you like, as long as the Hidden Gems form is filled out with a link of your review within the specified period of time. There is a nice variety of genres and books to pick from. All for free as long as an honest review is entered within that certain period of time.

I totally love this service I have found some very special new authors I would have never known about without this ARC site. Thank you for the introductions to so many new genres and authors.

Hidden Gems is the best ARC team that I have participated in. They put you in control of selecting the genre and book you are willing to review as they become available. Many ARC groups are for a specific author or you must read everything you are sent regardless if it’s something you want to read or not. With Hidden Gems you only request what you are interested in. The process is so simple and organized. You know exactly when to expect the ARC to be sent and when it’s due. HG’s variety of authors has exposed me to some that I hadn’t read before and am grateful to have reviewed.

JCB: Given my experience in writing screenplays, I tend to write more cinematically with dialogue driven characters.  HG: Makes sense! You began writing as a young girl. Has “author” always been your dream job? Tell us a bit about your publishing journey. JCB: I am giggling as I write this because it took me a long time to even consider myself an author. I started my first romance novel in 3rd grade. I hand wrote it in cursive on blue lined paper and I never finished it. My writing continued in my journals, documenting moments… Read More >
