I love this series, I cannot praise it enough. The topics it coversI feel are so relevant from dealing with sexualities at a young age to different mental health issues. It is literally impossible not to fall in love with Nick and Charlie (also they're friends).
The characters are all diverse which I love as books should be normalising LGBTQ+ characters and giving them air time. So big up the representation. My bff, who is a member of the LGBTQ+ community has literally given her heart to this series and loves what Alice Oseman has created.
These books are super quick to read, I read both Vol 2 and Vol 3 in the same day in a matter of hours, the graphics are easy to follow and you can't help but get attached to the story. When I read these there was two weeks left before Vol4 was released. It's very rare I drop my current read for a just delivered book but you can bet that's what I did for Vol 4.
I need more of this series immediately. I highly recommend anyone of any age group reads this series. It has so much potential to help teenagers see they are not alone but also do the same for an older audience.
This was another amazing volume. I love so many of the characters and their interactions are so realistic and well done. The friendships, romance and family aspects of this are all so different from each other, and there isn't a "happily ever after" in the way a lot of books present one. Nick and Charlie have a lot to overcome, and this was a really incredibly written volume covering how difficult it can be to come out to family and friends. On a personal level, I found this volume hard to read as there was also a discussion of mental health on two topics that hit extremely close to home and echoed a lot of things that were very familiar. This was really well presented with a focus on healing and discovery and support and it really made me cry, and I felt very overwhelmed by it, but in a good and bad way! As usual, I loved the art and story and how the topics in here were addressed. Can't wait for volume 4.
Five 'they're just too damn cute' stars from me. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Great character progression and more couples getting couple-y including their teachers 😏. Nick and Charlie FINALLY come out to everyone they care about school-wise on their trip to Paris. Harry, the little swine, tries to apologise for his unforgivable behaviour the previous year but he's only doing it to soothe his own conscience, and Charlie calls him out on it. Fabulous. 😍😍😍😍😍
This really starts heading in depth into relationship struggles as well as the fears that come with the territory no matter what the age. I get the homophobic family and the need to control food but for me it is comfort eating! I am really loving this series and wasn’t sure how it would grow but it definitely goes from strength to strength.
I can't praise HeartStopper enough. From the cute and beautiful art style to the carefully composed and sensitive yet endearing storyline. Alice Oseman really knows how to make us swoon, but also feel like we're friends with all her characters. Honestly, just do yourself a favor and go read this. I can guarantee these amazing misfits will put a smile on your face.
Definitely my favourite volume so far! There something just so comforting and safe and heartfelt about it, I cannot stop smiling while I read it. Nick and Charlie in Paris are the CUTEST and I loved learning more about their friends (Tao & Elle *swoon*).
