What Readers are Saying About Hidden Gems

Hidden Gems is a great place to find books to read and review! They make it so simple. Choose your genre(s) then receive emails with potential books. HG sends a reminder when the book goes live, and their form even finds the review without pasting in the link! It’s the easiest ARC site I use!

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 spent a lot of time discussing what happened, how and why I think the current system works the way it does, and the realities of what I believe is unlikely to ever change (and why). But that doesn’t mean the system can’t be vastly improved upon, we just need to make sure to ask for the right things. Today I’ll go over the changes I think Amazon would have a hard time arguing against, while still providing authors with a defense against the devastating consequences of having their entire careers unfairly ripped away. Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things… Read More >
