bee I believe that this volume will be purely chapter 4 as like chapter 3, it is a rather long chapter compared to chapter 1 and 2!
Katie Exactly. But it is a fairly long chapter, so don't worry. :)

ohhhh baby this was perfection. as the story continues, it only gets nearer and dearer to my heart and i genuinely don’t know what i’ll do when it’s all over

pre-physical copy reread:

only a short time until this bb is in my hands and kicks me in the face with cuteness and sadness and i cry all over again. truly cannot wait :’)

“There's this idea that if you're not straight, you have to tell all your family and friends immediately, like you owe it to them. But you don't. You don't have to do anything until you're ready.”

I adore everything that Alice Oseman writes and Heartstopper is no exception. Obviously. It's so wholesome and heart-warming, so cute and lovely. It's a feel-good read, for sucky days and happy days alike. Something to make a sunny day brighter and something to hide under the covers with when you can't

You know that moment when your entire soul melts into a book because it is warm and comfortable and safe, but also relatable and vulnerable and sometimes sad?? Me. And Heartstopper Vol 3. 🥺I am such a pile of emotions right now. This book is a warm hug and wholly uplifting, but it also touches on a lot of the harder parts of being a teen and queer and figuring it all out. Like how things can be okay now, but it doesn't erase bad things in the past. Mental illness is an insidious beast and it som ...more

Volume 3 of Alice Oseman's amazing Heartstopper series hit me square in the feels, just like the last two books!

Nick and Charlie and their friends return in this, the third volume of Oseman’s amazing graphic novel series about young love, struggling with your identity, and finding the courage to be who you are and be with whom you choose.

Nick has just come out to his mother and he and Charlie take tentative steps toward becoming boyfriends. But both are nervous about how everyone—their frien

Adorable & real as I knew it would be!

Nick and Charlie are officially dating, and a school trip to Paris with all their friends sounds perfect!

But with Nick still not completely out yet, and a few homophobic assholes around things were never gonna run smoothly.

I love all the different characters in here, I love the difficult issues Alice Osman tackles including homophobia, self harm and eating disorders. I’m sad that I have to wait until 2021 for the next instalment. But I can’t wait for more N

My heart feels so warm after reading this. Nick and Charlie and their group of friends must be protected at all cost, I swear! I appreciate Oseman's way of bringing out of the surface things most of us are afraid or hesitant to talk about. Communication and acceptance for me are the main things about here. There was drama but at the same time not overly done? Just the proper amount to spice things up and to give the characters the chance to talk about their issues. Love this!

This is just as sweet as the previous two volumes and Nick and Charlie are still being their cute and adorable selves. They are getting to know each other better and I just love how supportive and caring they are.
Their trip to Paris is so much fun and it also gives us an opportunity to learn more about other characters, as well.

Another great thing about this volume is that it touches on some more serious subjects and I really like how they are handled.

Gahhhh waiting till 2021 for Vol 4 is no fun, but I love these so much! Charlie and Nick are too precious. Another fabulous installment in the Heartstopper series.

I have been living my best life this evening by sipping wine and reading three volumes of one of my new favourite series. Nick and Charlie remain just as adorable throughout this instalment, but heavier topics are also introduced. Also, Paris. How can you dislike something set largely in the city of love?

Three cheers for Alice Osman, for dreaming up one of the most inclusive, diverse, empowering, moralistic and

the eating disorder passages were definitely harder to read, so this one was not AS fluffy as the other 2, but non the less, it was as GOOOOOD OMG THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER 🥵❤️🥺 this thing is so freakin pure
Definitely my favourite volume so far!
This was even cuter than the first two if that is even possible! Dying to get my hands on the fourth installment!(:

✨Alice Oseman, you're saving the world and ME!

What's new?
This volume is as super cute as the last volume but this one is more intense and there's more stories than just Charlie's and Nick's.
This particular volume describes about a Paris trip.

The series has become more intense in the sense that both the main characters are becoming more mature, taking things in their stride with much understanding and they come out much braver.

This series is becoming more and more interesting because of the fa

There's something so comforting and safe and lovely about these comics. Alice Osemsn has managed to create an environment that feels like a wholesome community of good friends. It's a place where you can discuss anything and you'll be accepted no matter what.

I wish these were around when I was younger. In this edition we see Nick and Charlie visiting Paris on a school trip with some friends. After just coming out to his mum, Nick is now faced with the decision of when to come out to his friends,

Will Nick and Charlie ever stop being the cutest couple there is? I don't think so. I just love them so much, they feel very realistic and you can clearly see how much they deeply care for each other. This volume here follows the Paris trip that their school organizes and so we see them having a week full of exploring French museums and having fun. If you aren't caught up yet, I strongly suggest you give this comic book a chance!
4 Stars

This third volume of Charlie and Nick’s teenage love story is steadily becoming a bit more thoughtful, but no less romantic or addictive. In this installment, Oseman introduces themes surrounding mental health, that will surely become a bigger deal as the series (first and foremost a successful webcomic) progresses.

Here, we follow newly established boyfriends Charlie and Nick as they head off to Paris on a school trip during summer. Nick is still struggling with how to come out as bisexua
