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

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 Osemans 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 everyonetheir friends

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 ...more

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.

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!

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

Dont know what else to say buts it is still as cute and adorable as ever and since Im greedy I want more of EVERY CHARACTER, COME ON AND GIMME!

I should calm down.

Anyway, I really loved this one and if you havent 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

✨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

I dont 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 Im looking forward to seeing how those issues are dealt with going forward. Love Nick and Charlie so, so much! ...more
4 Stars

This third volume of Charlie and Nicks 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

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 doesnt 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.

So i really love this graphic novel series its definitely my top 5 favorite graphic novel series ever, Charlie and nick literally own my freaking heart.

However, i didnt give this volume 5 stars because i honestly felt really uncomfortable with some of the things in this volume. I didnt look up the trigger warning for this because i didnt think there was any but when i kept reading i realize there was for eating disorder and self harm and those
