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!
