TikTok is obsessed with a literal burn book. Here’s how you can get your hands on the journal you won’t want anyone to read, ever.

Burn After Writing by Sharon Jones is a national bestseller. Despite its mega popularity online, the guided journal was designed for you to actually take a step away from social media and reflect. It comes with a book of matches to burn after completion because the contents might be too personal to share.

“Instagram, WhatsApp, Snapchat, TikTok, VSCO, YouTube… the world has not only become one giant feed, but also one giant confessional. Burn After Writing allows you to spend less time scrolling and more time self-reflecting. Through incisive questions and thought experiments, this journal helps you learn new things while letting others go,” the description reads.

When TikTok user Ollie, aka @oliviacarmenmilan, shared that it was the “best book I have ever ordered,” TikTok listened. Her video racked up over 4.2 million views.

“I didn’t burn mine, I taped it up and in a few years I’ll open it up,” one user wrote.

“Buying ASAP,” another said.

“I have this. It’s absolutely my favorite thing. It’s my therapy lol,” a third person commented.

Jones’ book is divided into three sections: the past, the present and the future. The book contains prompts to get you to discuss heavy topics like your greatest heartache, the baggage you’re carrying, regrets, hopes and even people you wish you’d never met. While it’s geared toward teenagers, the guided questions are ones that anyone can answer and learn from. 

“This book is amazing for reaching into your inner soul and finding exactly who you are,” a Walmart reviewer said

You can snag the book on sale right now for $8.24, almost half off its original $14 price tag.
