What Readers are Saying About Hidden Gems

I totally love this service I have found some very special new authors I would have never known about without this ARC site. Thank you for the introductions to so many new genres and authors.



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!

I do read arc for several authors but I have come to prefer Hidden Gems. I am able to choose only the titles that interest me. HG keeps track once it goes live and will auto find my review for me as well. It makes the process easier and less stressful. Good job!
