What Readers are Saying About Hidden Gems

I love love being a reviewer, especially with Hidden Gems since they allow you to pick and choose the genres and books you want to read so it’s always interesting because you’re picking. They don’t hound you constantly for your review, and will give you a read out of what books you’ve read and what books still need reviewing. I also like getting new best sellers before they are out. All in all a great program.

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.

I love being an ARC reader for Hidden Gems! You get a variety of different genres and authors. And you can pick and choose which books you want to read. And I love that they email you to remind you the book has been published. If I were reviewing them I’d give them 5 stars!

Whether that’s a science fiction invention, magical-seeming powers, or historical details… I guess I just like escapism! I also like young adult literature, because that’s where we find the really powerful choices on which the rest of a lifetime turns. As a writer,… Read More >
