Mini Review: Heartstopper Vol 1

Hi all my bookworms,

My name is Chiara and I am a Bookworm.

How are you all keeping?

I ordered some books this month not many, just a few to make myself feel good by buying books.  I’ll leave exactly what books I ordered for my monthly haul post but for now I want to tell you about Heartstopper.

Title Hearstopper vol 1

Author: Alice Oseman

Heartstopper vol 1

Publisher: Self Published

Date published: October 2018

Format: Paperback

Pages: 278

Genre: YA, Romance, LGBTQ

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐



The post man delivered my parcel and I opened it and pulled out the books and immediately started flipping through the first few pages of the book.  Twenty minutes later I had finished the book and I regretted not having bought volumes 2 and 3 at the same time.

I have since found Tapas and I’m reading the rest on there, though I will eventually buy vol 2 and vol 3 because we all need to support authors.

But this is just meant to be a mini review so I going to say I loved this.

I regret not having read it earlier.

I am not normally one to read graphic novels, I find I miss some of the detail and the filled-out-ness of a normal novel.  But I didn’t miss it with this one.  The characters were well rounded.  In fact, I would say that the lack of words made my imagination more active.  I had to fill in the holes, the small lack of description, with how I thought the world would be built.

I love Charlie. I think he is sweet and brilliant and Nick gorgeous and supportive and they are a perfect match for each other.

I would recommend this to anyone. Even if to begin with you only want to read it online (Tapas),  this is so worth reading.  I really need to check out the rest of Alice Oseman’s work.  If it’s nearly as good as this then I will devour it.

Have you read Heartstopper?  Did you love it as much as me?  Or are you like me and you’ve been putting it off?

Remember, bookworms, stay home, stay safe and until next time, happy reading!

  1. […] I’ve been so excited to write this review ever since I read Heartstopper Vol 1. I never expected to like graphic novels. I’d read a few comics over the years but I was nervous reading a book that was entirely pictures and very few words. But I read the first book in 20 minutes. I devoured it. And I couldn’t wait to read the rest. I even read all of them on Tapas before I bought the books. You can find my review of Vol 1 here. […]
