RELEASE BLITZ: The Weight Of Life by Whitney Barbetti


“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.

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

“It’s a choice— to wallow in despair or to acknowledge what can still bring happiness to my life.”

Ugh… this quote. I just LOVE it!! I finished this book last week but have been really struggling with writing this review. There’s just so much to say but I don’t want to spoil things. This book is beyond beautiful… there is so much we can learn from Mila. 

This book is sweet. It’s inspiring. Romantic. Hopeful. Sad. Just feel with it!! In The Weight of Life we find Ames and Mila who are struggling with life. Their learning to accept life, love, and happiness after living with unbelievable sadness. So much depth and heartache in this book but I found it to be an inspiring story more than sad. It made me feel hope.

I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I will leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.
