They've finally said those three little words, and Charlie has almost persuaded his mum to let him sleep over at Nick's house ... But with Nick going off to university next year, is everything about to change? By Alice Oseman, winner of the YA Book Prize, Heartstopper encompasses all the small moments of Nick and Charlie's lives that together make up something larger, which speaks to all of us. Contains discussions around mental health and eating disorders, and sexual references. 'The queer graphic novel we wished we had at high school.' Gay Times

You know what I love about these books? That they‘re out there for young adults to learn what healthy, respectful, caring relationships look like and sound like. If whomever you‘re with doesn‘t treat you like Nick and Charlie treat each other, it ain‘t it.

Caught up and current on the Heartstopper series. Such a sweet series filled with lots of great characters. In this volume Nick contemplates which University he wants to attend and Charlie learns that he doesn‘t need Nick to be brave, that he can be brave on his own.

Finished this earlier in the week but I‘m still trying to get over the crud & having a busy work week. Anyway, this is such a delightful series, simple & heartfelt. I love Charlie & Nick & I‘m sorry that Vol. 6 will be the last. (Maybe the author will change her mind?) Even if graphic novels aren‘t your thing, this series is so readable & has so many positive LGBTQIA & mental health messages to offer.

I hadn't realised this was out until I saw people blogging about it! Got it this week after a comfort-buying spree, and greedily devoured it last night. The boys are so sweet, and I'm glad as well to see their individual journeys.

As for the reason for the comfort-buying... I spent some time in the eye casualty this week, after Biscuit Bun accidentally clawed my open eye. My sight will be okay, but it isn't okay yet and reading can be difficult.

shanaqui When you can't read, acquire more books to read later, right??? That's how it works! 3mo
rwmg Of course. If I have a challenge to read books I've owned for more than year, then obviously I have to buy books now so that there are books which fit next year.

Hope your eyesight recovers quickly 🙏

shanaqui @rwmg There must always be new books!

Thank you. Damage to the cornea actually heals really fast, so between that and the eyedrops I have, things improve by leaps and bounds each day. Big relief!

Always lovely and cozy stepping into this world. I missed the friend group in this volume and enjoyed the deepening of the boys‘ relationship.

rwmg I've been binge-watching the TV series over and over again. I haven't read the books because I don't want any spoilers. I wish I could have seen it when I was that age. But then could any real boys have lived up to Nick Nelson? 3mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This series is a gentle, but realistic coming of age. I maybe don‘t agree with some of the parenting decisions in volume 5, but that, again, is pretty realistic. Charlie and Nick are considering escalating their relationship. Additionally, Nick, who is older, visits possible universities for next year. Relatable to many. These characters are sweet and so likable, you instinctively cheer them on.

I can't believe Oseman is going to end this series in the next book. If it doesn't end with a picture of Nick and Charlie's joint tombstone showing they died in each other's arms 100 years in the future, I will riot. 😂

My “next in a series“ read for January #BookSpinBingo

I‘m so glad that I spotted this on my library‘s Fast Reads (shorter loans of popular materials) shelf. It‘s as charming as the first four volumes about a gay couple in high school; romantic yet with enough realness to keep it from being too sweet. #LGBTQ #YA

Back to the world of Nick and Charlie I still love these two. What a great edition to the series. We don't see as much of their friends in this but there's a great moment with his sister. A brilliant read and it's now being stolen by my daughter. 5*

What a great first book of 2024! 💗💗💗💗💗 I love the Heartstopper universe and in my opinion it keeps getting better and better. Lots of ways that Nick and Charlie grow in this volume and the friends and family have important roles too. Oseman says that volume 6 will conclude the series (maybe that‘s common knowledge but it was news to me?) and it‘ll be sad to see it end!

Cupcake12 Totally agree! Have you seen the series on Netflix? 4mo

The best way to ring in any year: with Heartstopper! I really loved the growth Nick and Charlie (and many other characters) experienced in this volume. There‘s so much coming into yourself and figuring out who you are as a person that happens as a teenager and it‘s delightful to see it happen for two of my favorites. I love these characters so, so much. ❤️

Love, love, love! While I'm sad, Heartstopper will reach its conclusion with Vol 6, words can not express the queer joy these graphic novels fill me with. Vol 4 was an emotional rollercoaster, so I really enjoyed the more light-hearted vibes of this instalment. The two balance each other beautifully. The boys love and support each other as wonderfully as ever, and honestly, I whooped audibly at Charlie's progress. Also, I loved Tori's coming out.

psalva Just got this in the mail the other week and I‘m really excited to get to it! I think I may need to reread Volume 4 first as a refresher though. 4mo

After the emotional heavy Volume 04, this one was a lot more lighthearted. To be honest, this might be the rare case where I prefer the adaptation, since we get to see more of the lovely side characters in the series than in the novels.

On the first day of Christmas, Libby gave to me:
Heartstopper Volume Fiveeeeeee!

I devoured it this afternoon—these characters are such a delight, and I always find the emotional maturity depicted in these stories so refreshing. Supportive friends and family, and two boys in love, navigating a deepening relationship and honestly working through insecurities and uncertainties together. LOVE. ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

I really love Nick and Charlie. They have real issues to tackle, and they are so kind. It is always a pleasure to spend time with them.
Vol. 5 has Nick looking into college and the boys considering sex.
I absolutely love Nick's mom and after the show cannot stop seeing her as Olivia Colman even with these sketches. She is just the most lovely and caring character.

Not a favorite of all 5, but really good explaining relationship anxiety. Charlie and Nick love each other, and don‘t know who they are without the other. I liked how they handled this; they both grew separately yet trust the other all the same. The positive relationship examples were amazing. Especially this communication growth.
Implied sex. #lgbtq

A brief break from reading The Poppy War trilogy for the latest installment in this big, warm, soft hug of a series! Nick and Charlie contemplate the next step in their relationship, while Nick looks at unis and Charlie faces opportunities at school in several forms. Lovely, affirming, sweet, real, and cozy as always!

"Heartstopper Volume Five" by Alice Oseman. 9,8/10 rating. I absolutely adored this book, it was so sweet and suprisingly educational. I learned a lot about about healthy relationships, and these two were so cute discovering themselves once more! It made me want a girlfriend really bad, but i'll have to deal with it.
