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

Yes, ma'am, I just ordered my copy.
*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*

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 series just gets better and better! And I’m now officially all caught up on the webcomic, so I’m playing the waiting game like everyone else. Can’t wait to see where Charlie and Nick go from here! 5/5 stars.

Oh my goodness! Excuse me while I just swoon over here after finishing this third volume of Heartstopper! It is such a satisfying feeling to finally hold in your hands a book that you waited so long to read and then it goes and completely fulfills all your expectations! This is now my favorite volume so far. First, I am even more amazed at the art and the drawings which are one of my favorite things about these comics, I just stare endlessly at every single page. But most importantly we have ...more

I love this series so much. It's cute and adorable and Nick and Charlie are such a great couple. In this volume they go away to Paris on a trip with the school and deal with the reality of telling their friends they are a couple or not. I really like how Alice manages to weave in really serious topics without feeling preachey or overshadowing the story of them as a couple. It's always a joy to read.

TW: mention of self-harm, eating disorders, homophobia (they are mentioned in the comic on Tapas and I think in the volume too)

This was again so cute??? I love that this isn't only about Nick and Charlie, but also that other characters are being represented as well! The friendships between all the characters are so adorable and I can't deal (view spoiler)

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 :/
