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.

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.

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.

As some of you will remember, we first reported on this story back in April amid growing reports of larger than normal return rates seen by some Amazon authors. Despite the fact that Amazon’s eBook return policy hadn’t changed in years, the increase in returns was traced back to a growing number of social media posts (mainly on Tiktok) highlighting the lack of restrictions and ease of which readers could return eBooks on Amazon, and then even… Read More >
