Release Blitz with Review: The Weight of Life by Whitney Barbetti

Posted on

“Don’t let go.” Those were my first words to him, as I hung over the side of a London bridge. The words I would soon say again, in a moment that didn’t involve bridges, but something much more fragile: my heart.
He held onto me for three weeks, in a time when I needed to be held. Needed to connect to someone who understood how loss tunneled unrepentantly through the fabric of your soul.
Although he said he’d stay, we both knew he wouldn’t. I had already survived one loss—I didn’t know if I’d survive another. 
She spun into my life like a tornado of smiles and chatter and everything else I’d long avoided, with a persistence that I admired, albeit begrudgingly. She broke down each neat wall I’d constructed without even trying. Her presence alone caused me to remember what it felt like to smile, to look forward to what the day would bring.
But it was only supposed to last three weeks.
“Don’t let go,” she’d pleaded.
I’d promised her I wouldn’t—but I would. I didn’t have a choice.

My Review

“It was as if, in that moment, the world didn’t make sense anymore–everything was upside down and inside out.”

“He tasted like heartbreak and hope, and my skin lit up with a thousand heat spots.”

“It’s a choice–to wallow in despair or to acknowledge what can still bring happiness to my life. And I’m choosing to live despite the heartache.”

“I’ve said it once before that looking at him was like waking up, and it had never been truer than in that moment.”

The Weight of Life was one of my most anticipated reads for 2017. So, when I got my greedy little hands on it, it should come to no surprise that I just devoured this book.

The Weight of Life is one of the most incredible and heartwarming story that I’ve read so far this year. The writing is brilliant and flows so easily. The characters are real, flawed and perfectly imperfect. The story-line so moving, leaving you with all the feels. For me, it was complete and utter perfection. The pain, heartache and love so real, it felt as though they were my very own emotions.

The Weight of Life isn’t just a love story. It is a story of second chances and grief. It is a story about guilt and regrets. It is a story of hope and the strength to pick yourself back up again and finally move on. Most importantly, it is a story about life and the decisions we make along the way, and taking a chance when fate provides you with a second chance.

This story was incredibly beautiful to me and moved me to tears many times. The Weight of Life is a truly special read, one that will forever be ingrained into my heart. Whitney Barbetti has once again slayed me with her beautiful words and impeccable storytelling. I am completely, 100% speechless and blown away.

I like nachos and champagne and clean sheets. I spend far too much time at Starbucks. I wrote a couple books
