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 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 have been doing this Hidden Gems Arc for so long. It’s great you get to meet new authors, read there stories. I believe it’s more it helps in other areas of ur life, the things they would like you to do are things you would do anyway like leave a review but they also get sometimes life doesn’t always go the way it should. I have recommended it to friends. And the books are real and interesting and u pick the ones u want, there aren’t crappy books I’m sure some aren’t always into the books once they start and that’s okay with them. You can’t go wrong it’s a win win for everyone. I love being in it

If you’re making up your own world or society, you also get to make up the details – but when your settings are based on real events and different time periods, you have to be much more careful.  Those aren’t rules and norms you can easily break – and author Carmen Ferreiro-Esteban is here to explain why and what happens when you do. As a writer of historical fiction, I am aware of the importance of adding well researched details to bring a past period to life. If the story takes place in the present, readers will have their personal experiences to draw from when imagining the characters’ daily lives, but when it is set in past times, it’s the writer’s responsibility to recreate in their minds a world… Read More >
