Charlie and Nick are at the same school, but theyve never met . . . until one day when theyre made to sit together. they quickly become friends, and soon Charlie is falling hard for Nick, even though he doesnt think he has a chance. But love works in surprising ways, and Nick is more interested in Charlie than either of them realised.


Heartstopper was on my list for like forever. But last week I saw this tweet that Netflix is producing a series based on these graphic novels. Now I really had to read it before the series comes out. So I immediately bought it for only 99 cents (it was on sale, I think). And I finished it in no time.

I can’t even remember the last time I read a graphic novel, must have been at least 10 years. But now I remember that I also like to read graphic novels. So maybe in the future, I am going to read more of this genre.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It is cute! I saw this book everywhere on Instagram but I never really bought it and I finally did and I am so happy that I did. This is what I needed right now. It is super short and you can probably finish it in one hour or so. But it is still worth it to buy this. I honestly can’t wait to read the rest of this series and to watch the Netflix series (hopefully very soon).

This is just a beautiful love story between two boys, who became really good friends at first but now fall in love with each other. For Charlie is not new because everyone at school already knows he is gay, but for Nick it is new. He thought he was straight until he got feelings for Charlie.
