M. It will be only chapter 3! Makes sense since it is way longer than chapters 1 and 2.

Of all this time where the fuck have I been! It was the time I decided to face the world and then I read this book and now I want to curl up in my blanket again.

I want to hug Charlie so hard whenever he cries!
I am like shouting on top of my lungs Nick your baby boy is crying hug him please!

I can’t agree less with Tara, why are straight people like this? I am going to show a stick in your ass Harry! Stay away from my babies. Tara and Darcy are such a bae!

ARGH IT'S JUST TOO CUTE 😭💛I am so soft for these comics and this one focused on Nick's coming out and also just finding a label and feeling comfortable with it. And Charlie was so so amazing about it all; no pressure, no be ashamed that Nick wanted to hide them at first. And the BLUSHES and kisses and soft affirmations 😫like I will cry on u. do not test me, it will happen. I also just adore art style. It's so expressive and adorable (Charlie's blushing face is just super cute).

Felt a bit down, read this in a hour and a half and now my heart feels full 💖

Well if these two aren't the most adorable human beings ever?!

I am loving the Heartstopper series!

Volume Two focuses on Nick and Charlie finding their feet as their feelings for each other develop and they spend more time together.
Nick is discovering who he is and how he wishes to identify, as they both tackle the dramas of a teenage relationship.
The only part I can't get behind which is really minor is - Charlie is na

Good lord, these books are so sweet and so wonderful, I swear my heart grew a few sizes reading this today!

The second volume of Alice Oseman's gorgeous, life-affirming, squee-inducing graphic novel, Heartstopper picks up where the last one left off. Charlie and Nick's friendship has been growing closer and closer, and Charlie definitely has a huge crush on Nick, despite the fact that Nick is straight. Or is he?

Nick can't get Charlie out of his mind. He just wants to be with him, and he's hap

This was perfect. I am so in love with these two! Nick and Charlie are the best and I can't wait to continue on with their story- I'm only sad I have to wait 6 months for the next one to come out. I can't recommend the 'Heartstopper' graphic novels enough!

*Nellie borked and Nick tilted his head and I am doomed forever. Charlie, how did you survive?

Everything is better with volume 2!!!!
I cannot handle this cuteness. Somebody save me please!

There was not much in volume 1. To be honest, I found it a bit dull and disappointing with all the hype.

But the real hype should be for this one.

I love Nicky so much!!! He is like so soulpeircingly cute😍

Alice, thanks for making this series available at #webtoons and updating it regularly 😭

I am so grateful.

I read this volume as a webcomic, as it was coming out. I've been really liking Nick and Charlie's story so far. They are so sweet and adorable.

Re-read 10/2019: Love the physical copy. I enjoyed this story even more the second time around. Nick and Charlie are the sweetest.

Pros and Cons of reading graphic novels:

PRO: Very cute, lots of art, can make me happy and cry

CON: I can read them very quickly and become sad when I finish :(

PRO: ...but that also means I can read them again ;)
This is the content I pay my credit card bills for.

So damn cute. Those who disagree need to be slapped with a chicken breast and that’s a threat.

I read this in just one sitting and It made me so freaking happy that now It feels Like I'm on top of the world.
Charlie, I wish I could give you thousands hugs. My heart does weird things every time you blush or cry.
And, Nick...aren’t you the person we all need in our lives?

Volume three, here I come !!!

So sweet. Love the art style as well.

These are really quick graphic novels, that are short but somehow very satisfying. I read this one in about 15 minutes but enjoyed it immensely.
This is officially one the cutest things I've ever read ...more
