This book was written for you. Every beautiful word, line, sentence was also for you. And you can see that with every page. No amount of adjectives can describe this book. It is spectacular, brilliant, heartwarming, and not to mention inspiring. Whether you're a casual reader who flips to random pages in a book, or you read books cover to cover and embrace every word, you'll find something in this book. At least I know that I did. If you read, if you write, if you're one of those people who text message quotes, this book was written for you.

This book was filled with snippets of thoughts. Thoughts we all have, emotions, deep wounds, life-altering pain, love and disappointment. All of it. Written in little pieces to think about. This is a very easy and fast read. Well worth the money. The photographs are stunning as well.

Without much apparent effort, the poems reach out and tug at a memory, an exact moment, twists it inside your heart, makes it fresh anew, and in that open wound you can find solace that yes, this was how I felt, this is how I feel, I may feel this again someday—and it’s okay. The words linger. They are such that someone comes back to them again and again and when there isn’t anything new, one finds himself looking for more. Iain’s poetry has something in them that, after you read a piece, you put your hand to your chest and say, “That is what I always wanted to say.”

Momentous photography and minimal words are amazing. An enchanting melancholia - the words speaks so much of honesty and reality, I could almost touch the heartache,the truth in them. Exactly where the lost words are found. Definitely something i'll never get tired of reading over and again. and on an impulse, wherever i may be - just the kind of book i love. <3 I hope it gets to be published here in the philippines. i'd love to get one hard copy of it. <3 Will be looking forward for more from iwtfy.. :)

I have been following iwrotethisforyou.me blog for two years now. I had originally found it while doing research for my Bachelor of Fine Arts thesis. I guarantee that anyone can read this book and feel an emotional connection to the writing. Jon's beautiful images enhance the experience in a haunting way. I have been waiting for these writing to be released in a tangible form, and now that I can hold it in my hands I really feel how special it is. The way I like to read it is by turning to random entries a day. Even if I end up rereading an entry it will always hit me a different way depending on how I am feeling at the moment. The words take time to sink in so enjoy the experience!

There were some good poems here, but many MANY of them were repeats of one another with way too much middle school-style angst, so it didn't feel real. A lot of it was too dramatic to take seriously, so that really was disappointing.

I LOVE  THIS BOOK. I went into Barnes and Noble and I was looking for a book that caught my attention. That was this book. I loved  everything about this book. The photos were amazing and the words really spoke to you. I would recommend this book to everyone.

This isn't just a book. It's a heart of life. It's a heartbeat in and of itself. The words are blood and our minds are the veins. Cheers to all who encounter this in their lives.

I read this book because it was recommended for those who liked The Lover's Dictionary. This book is equally beautiful but it's darker. There's less optimism and more longing and rejection, in the beginning at least not all the way through. This book was really beautiful though. I felt like I wanted to quote every other page or read it out loud to someone.

The first and only book I continue to read over and over again. The first time I read it and finished it, I went right back to the first page and started again.
