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
