What Readers are Saying About Hidden Gems

I always wanted to be an ARC reader but wasn’t able to find a way to do so with a good variety of authors/genres to choose from. Then I found Hidden Gems and their ARC program is awesome. They will offer a variety even in the same genre. You read a synopsis and then offer to be an ARC reader for that book, if chosen, you receive your copy and provide your review. It is a quick and seamless process, if you forget to submit a review, you will receive a reminder along with a link to submit your review info. I am very happy with Hidden Gems, and look forward to a successfully long ARC team process with them.

Many of those authors flocked to KU when it was new, to the point where it actually seemed like a bunch of those other big eBook retailers were on the brink of collapse. But what once may have seemed like a no-brainer to some now feels more like a pair of handcuffs they’re anxious to cast off. Many of the things that made KU worth trying at first were negatively altered with each new iteration, and… Read More >
