I was laughing so hard when Bitty started stress cooking! 😂
Every graduation makes me cry, I know they're coming but still, it's all so emotional!
This was probably my favourite chapter ending, I'm really happy that there are no more secrets and that Bitty can finally stop worrying. I don't like seeing him w

Who knew I could get so emotional over fictional hockey?

I wanna tell her more than anything I just don’t have the words.

Goodness the feels. Where part one and two were about the team and finding your tribe then telling them two of you were secretly together. Part three was about the outside world and how hard it is to tell your parents. I was so heartbroken. Poor Bittle. This kid was so strong and still scared of disappointing his parents. This book was definitely darker but also amazing and realistic and the friends and friendships are the best part

Best one yet- the character development is so nuanced and awesome and I find it interesting how it skips time between chapters, sometimes time has passed and sometimes it hasn't. Plus ugh this is just SO cute and that ending was TOO MUCH. How am I supposed to wait for the rest?! My only complaint is how often Bitty says honey- not one of my favorite pet names tbh but he's the sweetest Hufflepuff through and through. Loved the sandwiches :D ...more

I reread this because I needed a good pick me up read to get out of my reading slump(?) and ugh, I will never get over how good this graphic novel is.

It’s been a while since I read Check, Please! Years 1-2, but that didn’t affect my enjoyment of Year 3 at all! Ngozi’s art is better than ever, and it’s so fun watching Bitty and Jack navigate their relationship, which was soooo built up over the previous two years. I think Ngozi really captured the struggle of coming out here, specifically to your parents. I can’t wait to see how the series wraps up with Year 4. 5/5 stars

Obviously, I love this entire comic and it makes me happier than Timothee Chalamet (which btw, is a very hard thing to accomplish). I love Bitty. I love Jack. I love Shitty and Lardo. I love Ransom and Holster. You can read it using this dandy link right here.

So I really love the romance, but I don’t really get the hockey, which is way even though I’ve been squealing I just can’t give it five stars. That ending though

Jack Laurent Zimmermann is everything.

(And could we please get some action between Shitty and Lards next year? That'd be 'swawesome.)

I think it's impossible to overstate how much I LOVE the Check Please series, which I have been reading online as a webcomic since late 2015. This book covers Eric Bittle's junior year at Samwell and his growing relationship with former-teammate-turned-pro-hockey-player Jack Zimmerman. The way this story handles coming out to friends and family, with the threat of media scrutiny, is just so well done. The art gets better and better with each chapter. I hadn't wait to see what Year Four has in st ...more

talented, brilliant, incredible, amazing, show-stopping, spectacular, never the same, totally unique, completely not ever been done before.

Eeep! This one was just the best. Bittle and Jack are just the cutest couple ever. I was so rooting for them, and I felt so heartbroken that it wasn't always easy. Coming out to your friends and teammates, to your parents (though Bittle still has to do that, but I guess given the end...). I was so happy that most people were accepting of their relationship. The Samwell team made it even cuter by having a money pot in which our couple had to put money if they were to cutesy. :P

I still have the same issue I had with the first two years, in which I feel like I definitely missed stuff by not following along with Twitter etc. in real time, but I still love this and all the ways the characters have grown together and changed since year one, sooooo five stars.
