“A collection of poems that evoke consistent inspiration and lasting resonance.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“This is hands down, no doubt about it, the most beautifully written piece of work I’ve read this year.”

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).
