This Winter (A Solitaire novella)
This Winter (A Solitaire novella) | Alice Oseman
13 posts | 22 read | 6 to read
A short story, based on characters from Solitaire praised as The Catcher in the Rye for the digital age The Times I used to think that difficult was better than boring, but I know better now... Im not going to think about the past few months, about Charlie and me, and all of the sad. Im going to block it all out. Just for today."Happy Christmas, " I say. The festive season isn't always happy for Tori and her brother Charlie. And this year's going to be harder than most.

A novella set in the Heartstopper universe. Christmas day from several different perspectives, everyone wants the day to be normal but they don't know what that is or how to deal with the fact that it won't be the same. Very hopeful and uplifting book.

Fitz looks pissed at being used as a prop 😂

Continuing to satisfy my Heartstopper love with this novella which takes place at the same time as Volume 4. This one is bittersweet, but still lovely. 4⭐️

I loved falling back into the Heartstopper world! This novella takes place during Vol 4 of the graphic novels, on the Christmas after Charlie comes home from rehab. It's told from all three siblings' perspectives and deals with the emotional toll of the holidays. Everyone wants the day to be as normal as possible but no one seems to know exactly how. Supporting someone with a mental illness can be a struggle. ⤵️

peanutnine Despite the heavy topics, this was still a hopeful read. I enjoyed the little illustrations that were scattered throughout as well 11mo

Content warnings for discussion of issues such as eating disorders, self-harm, and mental illness. In this novella, we get to see Christmas from the perspective of all three Spring siblings, Tori, Charlie, and Oliver. Nick also makes an appearance and is a wise and supportive boyfriend as usual, which is a nice counter to some deeply frustrating behavior from most of Charlie's family. I'll spend as much time in this universe as Oseman allows. 🎄

I haven‘t read the Solitaire novel, but that‘s a story told by Tori who is Charlie‘s older sister. And I know Charlie from the Heartstopper books.

In this novella we follow their family‘s Christmas celebration after some events that took place at the end of Heartstopper.

This novella comes with a trigger warning from the publisher/ author regarding mental illness including disordered eating and self harm.

#wondrouswednesday Only an hour late! @Eggs

1. Not much of a seasonal reader but I sometimes try to read books that fit holidays.

2. Food: Stews and chilis in the crockpot: beverage: hot chocolate

3. It was downright cold! In the 50s and soggy

Eggs We are “monsoon” here in Austin 3y

I don't think I have seasonal tastes of books.

Chili beans and broccoli soup with fried peppers and onions.

This has been the wettest and warmest winter. Rainy and 50s.
