I was born in sadness, which was just the beginning of a solemn and desolate life. I'm no stranger to pain—none of us are. The night I held my best friend's hand as she died, I understood true agony. And I never thought I'd feel happiness again.

But that was so long ago...

Moving to Colorado to be with Colin, my high school sweetheart, was the perfect way to start over and r

I have nothing but the utmost respect for this author, but sometimes a book just isn't for you, and this was the case here. I'm sad to say that it didn't work for me this time around.

Forget the fact that Whitney Barbetti is cool as shit. Forget the fact that Ten Below Zero is one of my my cherished books still to this day. And forget the fact that Whitney Barbetti likes tacos as much as I do. Whitney, as an author and her book Into The Tomorrow portrays some of the best writing I have seen to date. You don't like the characters or plot? I don't care. Whitney's writing is poignant, charismatic, and breathtaking.

This book was such an intense read for me. Between Whitney's beautiful prose and Trista's heartbreaking journey, I was completely sucked in, from beginning to end. I raged, I cried, and I gripped my Kindle like a life vest. Into the Tomorrows is a story you'll be thinking about long after you turn the last page.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.


“It’s like you’re full of secrets that you can’t speak, but you wear them on your face anyway.”

This is not your usual read. It is not the normal sad girl meets boy and he changes things. No. It’s more than that. Deeper. It’s a slow burn. It’s something that you can’t quite put your finger on, but its there. You feel it. And when things come to the surface? You’re just never the same.

“My identity was lost in the in-betweens”

“I can feel your loneliness, Trista.” He was watching me, the moon reflecting off of his face. “It’s in your eyes, that hunger for something that digs past the superficial. You want someone to know you, but you’re afraid too. And you’re consoling yourself with someone who doesn’t want to know you because you know it’s safe.” He let out a breath, like he was absolving himself of some kind of demon. “ And fuck me if it doesn’t make me want to give you what

I haven't had such a visceral reaction to a story in a long time. Whitney's style and poise is so poignant, it spoke to me on such a personal level, it's incomprehensible. This is a story that no reader should overlook.

Trista. I don't even know how to start other than saying I wish I could've helped this girl. Just start by reading the blurb, and tell me your heart doesn't hurt for this her. After hearing what she had been through, the problems she faced with her mother and her lack of identity

Wow. As I sit here and mourn the end of this book, I'm trying to find the words to adequately portray my feelings.

This book was achingly beautiful in all of the best possible ways. Barbetti always manages to steal my breath with her words but the emotions and feelings I have after this one is everything.

These characters carried parts of my soul around with them. Feelings I know all too well we're there, in black and white, written on a page for everyone to read.

I am struggling with my overall rating and thoughts on Into the Tomorrows. Barbetti’s Ten Below Zero was a standout read for me when I read it last year, and I was very much looking forward to this title. I like broken characters and the idea of falling for your partner’s roommate is the right amount of taboo to catch my attention.

So, why the struggle?

Well, there were a couple of things. Let’s start with the bad then move on to the good.

So I don’t know if Im in a reading funk but the stories just aren’t hitting me right or well the past few days. The preface of this book is just sad. Trista is born from hate almost – not even sadness and it bothered me that her mother was such a worthless piece of shit. There was no strong female lead. We had a child basically verbally abused by her mother which lead to her lacking any self esteem in who she was. Her entire chi

Still processing feelings

It's a few months after I've read ITT and I still don't know how to express how much I loved this story but figure I needed to give it a try.

Into the tomorrows is a story about loss, self discovery, and finding love. The female MC Trista has not had an easy life.

Whitney Barbetti has done it again. This woman can write a story that will punch you in the gut and make you do a double take before you even know what hits you.

Oh Jude! I am seriously in love. I think he is my soulmate character. If I could make a mold it would definitely be in the form of Jude… sigh. Poor Trista has had a rough upbringing and her boyfriend Colin really was the kind of guy you want to smack upside the head. He leaves Trista to fend for herself after a move and my boy Jude is t

What a story. I'm not gonna lie but I was so not expecting that ending. It was shocking to say the least. I would love the second book like yesterday.

The reason why I gave this book the rating I did was because of the story around the halfway mark. I got quite bored. I honestly thought that the first 15% and the ending were the best part of the story. Had it gone that emotional and evoked some more through the middle, this story would have had a totally different rating.

Oh how I love Whitney Barbetti's way with words! She can put so many emotions into them and create these beautiful stories.

So far, the books of hers I've read have the perfect ammount of angst the stories needed and Into the Tomorrows is not different.

I had Colin figured out since the first time he appeared and although my heart broke for Trista I wanted to shake her up and show her what she was missing. I love Jude. He is everything. And I like Mila too.

Some parts of this story contain minor spoilers.

In every book I've read of Whitney's, her male heros reflect her in a way. Jude is insightful and his stories, like Whitney's, make me "think too much." Making me feel a lot like the female lead, uncomfortable, but I can help but want to be embraced by Jude...embraced by the story.

By far, Jude is my favourite male hero (I'm so sorry Everett) that Whitney has written.

Okay. I have no idea where to start with this.

I LOVE Whitney Barbettis words, all of them. Her ability to take 26 letters and mix them around to create something so beautiful and consuming stuns me. The way she can start a book and have me dragged in and crying before the second chapter? Amazing.

Ten below Zero was one of my favourite reads by this author and one of my most cherished books ever but lets stop and take a minute because Into the Tomorrows has just fucking topped it!!!! Yes i devour

“Love isn’t worth the heartache it leaves behind. Don’t fall in love. You’ll lose all your happiness.”

This was a gripping read for me, very raw and real.

The emotions that come out when Ellie dies is real and you can feel the pain through Trista’s words.

Trista Kohl, the girl that is swamped with sorrow and doesn’t know how to find her way out of it and simply at this point in her life she doesn’t want to, for anyone. Time passes and Trista still feels trapped in the a very hur

There is no doubt that Whitney Barbetti is really one of my literary goddesses. This woman knows how to capture simple emotions and draw depth from them. Into the Tomorrows was a consuming read; something that will keep you thinking, feeling, and anticipating. So addictive and hard to put down!

I was hesitant to read this one.

I love Whitney Barbetti. Her writing evokes so much emotion and I feel like her words are written for my soul. This book comes after a long pause since her last release and I was rabid for something from Barbetti’s brain. So naturally when this book came about and I heard more about it and saw the lovely cover, I was anxious to read it. Then I read the synopsis… Cheating. I hate it. With a passion. So naturally I was VERY torn about reading this book but I took a

It’s been a week since I’ve read this book and every day I sit at my laptop determined to write a review and every day I shut my laptop in defeat. Usually I am good with words and expressing how a book made me feel, but for this one, I come up blank. What I find more peculiar is that I inhaled this book. I took in every word and absorbed every sentence. It weighed heavy on my mind and even heavier on my heart.

I am trying to put my better words for this review. It was annoying finish this book due all my family decided talk me when I was reaching to the last chapters. Wow this was so unexpected in many different ways. First the fact about Ellie wow that was amazing. This book is about sorrow and grief more than a romantic and sexy book that surely is too.

I felt pretty bad about Trista. First because come on that name is not nothing pretty and her mom is a truly bitch. And well Colin is a son of bitch

Interesting... I thought I had read a book from this author before, and I just looked after finishing this one. I read He Found Me.

Throughout Into the Tomorrows, I enjoyed the story but there were a couple things that really irked me. It took me a while to figure out what they were. Then I just read my review from He Found Me and my feelings are exactly the same.

I enjoyed the story. The things that rubbed me the wrong way:

Whitney leads a trail of hints that, if you are like me, will get your conspiracy theory radar (or as I like to call it sh!t-about-to-get-real radar) going crazy.

The beauty and seeming simplicity of Jude as a man, is intoxicating. He focuses and is attentive. He knows what's going on, but he is not Tristas's boyfriend.

Trista is here for, well honestly even Trista isn't sure. Having lived a cold, lonely, and hollow existence, Trista is trying to fill the void. Too bad the only thing that seems t
