What Readers are Saying About Hidden Gems

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.

I love this service! Hidden Gems offers a fantastic daily selection of advance review books and provides a helpful nudge email to remind you when you’ve forgotten to leave a review. They have so many great titles and authors, it’s hard to choose!

I like this ARC reading program because there’s so many genres to choose from. When you’re done reading a book, all you have to do is leave a review or a reason why you choose not to review.

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 >
