Heartstopper Volume One
Heartstopper Volume One | Alice Oseman
197 posts | 292 read | 109 to read
Boy meets boy. Boys become friends. Boys fall in love. An LGBTQ+ graphic novel about life, love, and everything that happens in between - for fans of The Art of Being Normal, Holly Bourne and Love, Simon. Charlie and Nick are at the same school, but they've never met ... until one day when they're made to sit together. They quickly become friends, and soon Charlie is falling hard for Nick, even though he doesn't think he has a chance. But love works in surprising ways, and Nick is more interested in Charlie than either of them realised. Heartstopper is about love, friendship, loyalty and mental illness. It encompasses all the small stories of Nick and Charlie's lives that together make up something larger, which speaks to all of us. This is the first volume of Heartstopper, with more to come.

I'm sad I waited so long to discover Nick and Charlie. I just want to hug them both. What wonderful books. I'm so happy that lbgtq+ positive material like this is it there. Although the *f* word is used numerous times, I'll be sharing this one with my tween- the message is so good.

Ugh, so precious 🥹
Can be read in a sitting if you need something sweet to lift your spirits. I am considering ordering the next from the library! Also wondering about the adaptation. Anyone?

Smrloomis I adored this and was surprised it lived up to the hype (just finished book 4). I also really enjoyed the Netflix version 😊 and would recommend that too!!! 1mo
ChaoticMissAdventures I have read them all, and have watched the TV show, I thought they did such a good job staying faithful to the storyline and the feel of the book. Make sure to google the title! My friend's brother works at google and added graphics to the search result page! 1mo
Smrloomis @ChaoticMissAdventures awww, I just did a search and it was cute to see 😊 1mo
AbigailJaneBlog They books and tv show are all amazing, definitely recommend. Book 4 gets a bit deeper but still manages to keep the sweet vibe 1mo

I don‘t generally read YA or stories where a love story is the main plot, but this was very cute and I‘m glad I read it. Looking forward to Volume 2!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Across these four volumes, Oseman depicts some very real challenges young folks, especially LGBTQ teens, might face while still maintaining a mostly light tone. Quite a feat! It was delightful getting to know Charlie and Nick. Looking forward volume five!

This was adorable and Charlie‘s anxiety was relatable in many ways. Some pieces felt like they could have been better developed, even for a graphic novel, but the show seems to make up for that.

I saw the first season of this on Netflix before I knew it was based on these GNs, but as soon as I started seeing them on Litsy I rushed to read them. So far I‘ve adored both versions! And both have followed very closely. Can‘t wait for the next installment to come in on my library holds. #BBRCTeenAngstTooColdTooCold #LGBTQBookBingoTheBigScreen @LibrarianRyan @Kenyazero

I realize I‘m late to the game, but I became totally obsessed with this show on Netflix last week and read all four books in the last two days. They are unbelievably sweet, endearing, wholesome and so full of love. I can‘t say enough good things!

Had a wonderful time reading all the Heartstoppers! The first 2 cover the show and were ADORABLE— but the 3rd and 4th were the stars for me! I thought Oseman did an amazing job continuing to build Charlie and Nick‘s relationship with each other AND with their friends and families. I was also so impressed with the way mental health was tackled in the latter 2. Highly recommended the whole series 🥰

Awh this was such a sweet story. I loved it! The graphics could have been a little bit richer. There just wasn‘t much to look at. But I loved the story.

I can‘t wait to pick up the other volumes and I might actually watch the Netflix show if they stuck close to this story.

I read this because kid #2 told me I was missing out. Such an amazing series of books that encompass really teenage problems and not sweep them under the carpet and pretend life is good when its not. Such a moving storyline and brilliant writing and illustrations. Probably my favourite graphic novels yet.

Ok so this was honestly the cutest comic. It really captures some of the most ordinary every day things that just helps make it that much easier to connect with and get lost in.

As happy and sweet as this story is there are still references to everyday problems that people in the LGBT community face. Although it‘s not prominent or focused on it‘s still there and it just makes it feel more real in some ways.

Sometimes I read a book that's difficult to review and then I just kinda stop updating here all together (said book was a wellwritten clifi/covid novel that I'm still processing I guess and will review later). But I recently binged all of Heartstopper and I wanna add to the chorus of reviews so:

An absolute delight!

@Saknicole has been recommending this to me for a while, and since watching the lovely Netflix series adaptation (also so good!), I finally got to it! Such a sweet story and the comic style illustration is so well done and unique. I read the two chapters included in Volume One as the webcomic version, and the scrolling aspect was really effective.

Onto the next chapters included in Volume Two!

Finished the tagged book which makes 6 for June so far. I figured I better post my June #BFC2022 goals already. Technically that water goal also counts as a moving task because I don‘t want to be hauling 5 gallon bottles of water down the stairs 😅 I am hoping to stay put a while after this next move. 🤞

Loved this little graphic. I already have the rest of the series on hold. Nick‘s bi panic is 🥹💖 and reminded me of Ethan from Here‘s to Us

i absolutely love nick and Charlie. they are so stinking cute. these graphic novels get more intense in content nature as they go on so if you‘re just in it for the happy and lovey stuff, I‘d stop after the second volume. but they talk about some very important things and their relationship and never wavering support is so beautiful and true.
