Release Blitz, Review & Giveaway: The Weight Of Life by Whitney Barbetti

Title: The Weight Of Life
Author: Whitney Barbetti
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 27th, 2017



“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:
Whitney Barbetti is an incredible author who can tear your heart out and after that put it back together piece by piece. I've read most of her books so far, and I've loved every single one of them. And I can honestly say that I loved The Weight Of Life. It is slightly different from her other books. The angst is definitely less and I would say that there is no suspense. But that doesn't mean that the story is not heartbreaking in it's own was.

Mila and Ames are two incredible characters. If you've read Whitney's Bleeding Hearts series, then you've already met Mila. And yes, she is not exactly shown in her best light there but trust me, she is so much more than what you would expect and deserves her story to be read. As for Ames, he is a character and BBF who you definitely would want to meet. He is gorgeous, passionate and a little bit broken. Practically, the perfect combination. Both, Mila and Ames have lived through something traumatic. And though in the beginning none of them recognises the pain in the other, step by step they get closer and help each other heal.

In addition to Mila and Ames, I just loved the secondary characters. Lotte and Sam are so intriguing and I have to say that I am dying to read their story (I am hoping Sam will finally get his head out of the gutter and will end up with Lotte :D ). And if you are a fan of the Bleeding Hearts series, you will get a small dose of Jude and Trista :) So worth it ;)

The Weight of Life is not a lighthearted read but it is definitely a book that everyone should read. It is a story of loss and pain, a story of survival and finding happiness again. And it is heartbreaking and endearing in a way that only Whitney Barbetti can write it.
