Valentine’s Day is the only day of the year that is soaked in love from top to bottom. People all around the world celebrate this day by sending messages of love and affection to their partners, family and friends. For someone this can be the right moment to confess their feelings which they’ve been hiding for a while and didn’t dare to pronounce those three magic words—I LOVE YOU! It is this love formula that resonates non-stop from every corner. But have you ever addressed these words, not to a person but a book? What a seemingly silly question! The thing is that today we have another bright and love-oriented holiday—Library Lovers’ Day, dedicated to book lovers across the globe. 

To celebrate this extraordinary date, we organized a Book Review Contest on our Facebook page, where we asked you to share your story about the best book you’ve read for the last year. It could’ve been a groundbreaking book that impressed you immensely, the one that genuinely changed your life, exerted a lasting impact on you, helped to learn a valuable life lesson, or inspired you to take actions for self-improvement. 

We enjoyed reading all of the fantastic and creative book reviews sent to us this month. Thank you to each and every one of you for joining our contest. We’ve carefully read each story and have chosen our winners! Congratulations to the following people, who will each be receiving a 6-month subscription for Used Books Monthly on

  1. Cianna Damita for the review of Wait Till Helen Comes by Mary Downing Hahn.
  2. Brandon Diehl for the review of Steppenwolf by Herman Hesse.
  3. Chloée Nia for the review of Popisho by Leone Ross.
