What Readers are Saying About Hidden Gems

I love being a part of this as I love to read and write about a new book. I read usually a book or two a day.

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.

Here are her tips on how to make magic work… Read More >
