Editorial Reviews

Review

“A collection of poems that evoke consistent inspiration and lasting resonance.”
—Literary Inklings

“Your heart will be stoked.”
—Christina Perri, singer/songwriter

"Gregson is clearly a romantic... His words slip past the defenses of even the most bitter, with boarded-up hearts and cynical minds, reminding readers why we love, yearn for connection, and bare our souls."
—The Hiding Spot

“Like many people I know, I fell in love with Tyler Knott Gregson’s poetry via Instagram. Maybe it’s the allure of his Typewriter Series (awesome poems and quotes typed on vintage-looking parchment paper) or the fact that he posts just about every day so people always have something to see, but in the end I think it’s his raw talent for striking the chords of emotion within us that keep us coming back”
—The Blonde Vegan
 
“His Haikus inspire in their simplicity because it has become rare to find beauty in the mundane. His poems are capturing in their tone and in the way he utilizes his words. His photography is simply breathtaking, to say the least.”
—The Society Cynic
 
“There are writers and poets who just get it. Then, there are writers and poets who are so on point, you have no choice but to feel like maybe they've been reading your diary. If you're an avid Tumblr user, or just a fan of knowing you're not alone, you might be familiar with the work of Tyler Knott Gregson. Not only is Gregson a well-versed poet (pun intended) but he's also an incredible artist, photographer and has a big heart for charity.”
—Buzznet
 
“With over 30,000 Facebook fans and more than 100,000 Tumblr followers, Gregson has definitely hit a nerve with his short-yet-poignant pieces. In an age of goofy Vine videos, memes and Instagram dinner-plate photos, poetry seems an unlikely addition to the community of web shares and posts. Gregson’s poetry, though, isn’t about flashy design or snappy humor. To read the comments on his blog and Facebook pages, it’s plain to see that his words genuinely resonate with his fans.”
—Elsewhere NYC
 
“I LOVE THIS!  I follow Tyler Knott Gregson on Twitter and Tumblr. He’s amazingly talented!”
—Feeding My Addiction Book Reviews
 
“His poetry always catches me a bit off-guard and makes me reflect – which is why I like it so much. If you need a dose of romantic and moving poetry in your life, I highly recommend you follow this guy.”
—Eryn Faye
 
“I read page after page, and I hope you take the time to do the same. That way we all can tell our children, as they reads his words from their textbooks, that we were among the lucky ones who first happened upon Tyler Knott Gregson not long after his tumblr days. This man. Him and his words are remarkable. I would tip my figurative hat to you, sir, but even that seems to small of a gesture to express myself.”
—Just Another Silly Dreamer

“Forget having a guy quote me Shakespeare or Neruda, find me a guy who can quote Gregson. He’d have me hook, line, and sinker.”
Belle of the Library
 
“Gregson's Chasers of the Light is a beautiful little book that will make you feel something.”
Pretty In Fiction
 
“…gorgeous from cover to cover.”
Savvy Verse & Wit
 
“I would give this book to anyone I'd like to convince to start reading poetry.”
Book Dilettante
 
 “Beautifully done and a fresh and creative voice in poetry.”
Stories & Sweeties
 
“Please read this book, especially if you’re new to poetry because it’s a great first introduction.”
I Blog, You Read
 
“Gregson writes some of the most beautiful, romantic, and thought-provoking poetry I have ever read.”
Girls Writes Reviews
 
“I wanted to kiss the book and place it somewhere, not just toss it into a ready to pass on pile.”
Maria’s Space
 
“This is hands down, no doubt about it, the most beautifully written piece of work I’ve read this year.”
The Paige-Turner

What I have always loved about poetry is its ability to allow another heart to transfuse yours. Another perspective, of the cracks or canyons, to shift our own landscape. Tyler Knott Gregson's poetry and photography point out the necessity of hope, the beauty that lies in wait: under the bed covers or within the mountains. He reminds us than passion is possible, and to always see with wonder and gentle eyes. Buy this book, and fall into a beautiful world, that shimmers through Tyler's lens and words.

I have never fallen in love with a book before this one. It is so beautifully written. I'm so happy it's a hard cover because I can already tell it's going to be a worn book, and this is coming from someone who hates to read. Tyler is a wonderful writer and I'm so happy with this purchase. I would recommend it to everyone I know. <3

I would randomly scroll through my newsfeed on Facebook & would come across a poem written in the style of a type writer. I kept seeing more & more before I found out whom this wonderful writer was. I'm so glad I did bc I'm in love with his work. This book showcases the simplicity of how beautiful poetry can be. This book is full of some of the most moving & sensual,and often times,sexiest poems I've read in a long time. I felt everyone of his emotions on every single page. This is one of the best buys I've made in a long time. I'm so happy to own this.

I believe things come into our lives for a reason. Three years ago, Tyler's poetry came into my life when I needed a sign for hope and courage. Recently divorced I had trouble believing in love. Broken, shattered, and bitter Tyler's words breathed fresh air into my worn out soul. I called my ex and shared his words knowing this would help us heal. Three years later we still find joy sharing Tyler's words and photos. Knowing how thrilled she would be, I purchased this book for her. We read it together. Tyler's poetry has given us courage to believe and to love. Something neither of us thought would be possible after the divorce. We have moved on with our lives and are happier as friends. I hope one day soon she will find love again and that she will get the three things she wants the most on her wedding day. The first, marrying a man that truly loves her, the second, an original Tyler Knott Gregson poem to commemorate the wedding, and lastly to have Tyler capture the first moments of her new life.
Tyler, thank you for sharing your words and photos with us. This book of poetry is a must read for everyone. Do yourself a favor and read this book and then go to Tyler's website and read the rest of his poems, haiku's, and black out poetry. Your life will be richer, and fuller.

I bought this book because of all the hoopla and attention around it but frankly I wasn't blown away by his poetry.
He's a good writer to be sure. But I've read a lot of very similar themes and metaphors written by tons of writers on Twitter. There were only a handful of poems that were a "4 Star" for me. But most of the poems just didn't stir my soul. And having something stir my soul is the whole reason I read poetry.
I think it's great that because his poetry is popular, it brings more attention to poetry in general and modern poets. I just wasn't blown away by his work.
Also, I give major minuses to Penguin to put out a book with no page numbers and no Index of all the poems (even if they just #'d them because the poems have no titles). So, if I loved a poem that I wanted to share with someone else who has the book, how will I refer to it? Very unprofessional book publishing in my opinion.
I don't think I would recommend this book to a friend unless they were just starting out reading poetry and hadn't been online reading any of the beautiful "unknown" writers on social media.
It was a let down for me.
I preferred Warsan Shire's poetry, although the price of her book was criminal, considering the page numbers (borrow it if you can).

Sometimes, I read something that makes my heart thaw out and gives me hope for this world.

This book fills even the darkest crevasses of my soul.

Poetry is not dead, and Tyler Knott Gregson is the master of words that make you feels things you never knew existed.

Buy this. Read this. Feel everything.
