I finally read Heartstopper by Alice Oseman

I am very much aware I am late to the party with this one.

Last night I finally read Heartstopper by Alice Oseman. It was one of those books that I’d had my eye on for a while but kept getting pushed back for whatever reason. Now everyone around the world is finding themselves in lockdown and with some extra time, I thought it would be the perfect time. – Plus that fact that it’s only 99p on kindle currently, helped.

Charlie and Nick are at the same school, but they’ve never met … until one day when they’re made to sit together. They quickly become friends, and soon Charlie is falling hard for Nick, even though he doesn’t think he has a chance.

Heartstopper is about love, friendship, loyalty and mental illness. It encompasses all the small stories of Nick and Charlie’s lives that together make up something larger, which speaks to all of us.

But love works in surprising ways, and Nick is more interested in Charlie than either of them realised.

Description taken from Amazon

I’m new to Alice Oseman. Although I had heard her name before, I wouldn’t have been able to put any books to it. I loved the build up of Charlie and Nick’s friendship, and then watching it blossom into something else. I also love how normal sexuality is in this book. Just as it should be. I love how there is no “big shock” when someone slips into a conversation that they are gay. It’s normalised and doesn’t faze anyone. I devoured this book from cover to cover VERY quickly, and I absolutely cannot wait to read Volume 2.
