So it’s finished now online(I read it on Tapas) and hey it was amazing just like the first two volumes.

Don’t know what else to say but’s it is still as cute and adorable as ever and since I’m greedy I want more of EVERY CHARACTER, COME ON AND GIMME!

I should calm down.

Anyway, I really loved this one and if you haven’t checked Heartstopper out yet, yet you are looking for a cute gay romance featuring a huge diverse cast of characters from minority groups to LGBTQIA+, then this may very well be

I don’t think this series will ever not be a 5 star when you love the characters so much. Again, another volume that deals with some tough issues and I’m looking forward to seeing how those issues are dealt with going forward. Love Nick and Charlie so, so much!
*sobs into a black hole because how is it possible a webcomic-turned-book series like this exists, it is so perfect, i don’t even know how to express how soft i am for this, charlie and nick are the most precious things ever, and y’all bet im slapping that preorder button like u slap ur minecraft beds to fall asleep when it’s dark*

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.

Really liked the shift of this one taking place partly in Paris.

Really like how mental health was handled by the author.

Stories continues to be sweet in a cheesy, yet wholesome, way.

I like that the story doesn’t focus solely on lgbt issues in a way that tokenises the characters. Instead the characters are treated no differently than if they were straight which is really refreshing.

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.
My sweet soft boys.

This one hurt

What to say about this that hasn't been said a thousand times before? Honestly, I have so many emotions right now, I genuinely never read anything as wholesome as this webcomic series and I'm so thankful to Alice Oseman for putting this out in the world because damn, did I need. I cried, I laughed, I was scared of what was about to happen. I feel so much love for these characters and this story. Charlie has honestly become one of my favorite characters ever by this point.

Why are these books so precious????
They’re so heartwarming and funny, also Nick is my husband and Darcy is my wife. I love these characters with all my heart and I can’t wait for the fourth volume!

There are some very sensitive topics in this Volume and I think they are handled very well with the focus on understanding and helping the one person who is struggling.
Feb 08, 2020 rated it it was amazing
By far the best volume yet!

I just love these characters so freaking much! I am happy, that we got to know all of them a little better in this volume and I also love how Alice Oseman gave them all some time and space to grow and shine.

Best thing thoug, the way sensitive issues such as self-harm, eating disorders, homophobia, bullying and coming-out are handled. Alice Oseman really does know how to tackle serious topics, without being preachy or playing them down. They're discussed in a real and

LOVED IT.. The story just keeps getting better, more evolved. It deals with new issues and i just can't get enough. Need VOL 4 NOW!

I love this series so much. When I was at the Alice Oseman event with @afantasysky, the interviewer mentioned something about how he has the first Heartstopper volume on his bedside table and picks up it occasionally because it makes him happy, and I can TOTALLY see the sense in this. There are definitely sad/touching moments in this series, but overall it’s beautifully hopeful and heartwarming and just makes me smile SO MUCH.

I said it last time, but Oseman draws each character’s expression

By this point Alice Oseman owns my whole existence tbh. I’m actual ~trash~ for Charlie and Nick and that’s completely fine with me.

Obviously, this was wonderful. It made me feel all fuzzy. For a comic, I feel surprisingly very attached. I can't believe I have to wait until next year for the next volume to be bound up. I am too concerned for Charlie to wait and see :/
