I’ve been reading a whole bunch of graphic novels at the moment, and also have a load of reviews to put up on the blog, so to save everyone’s time, i figured i’d merge some in to one. I’ve been storming through a couple of graphic novels that i’ve loved, so wanted to share those with you!

We read Heartstopper: Volume Two for our August LGBTQ+ Book Club read and I absolutely adored it! I’ve not actually written my own review of either volume and I figured I should because I will shout from the rooftops about how pure and cute and wholesome they are!

Last Thursday we met up for our monthly LGBTQ+ Book Club gathering! In July, we read Heartstopper: Volume One by Alice Oseman and had such a great response we decided to carry on with Volume Two. She created these graphic novels based off her webcomics which are available for free online. We will be mainly focusing on thoughts on Volume Two but some Volume One comments will be in this post too – it can be hard to separate for those who read it online and more people could attend Book Club this month so it was really nice to talk about both! People who made it and people who couldn’t but wanted to share their thoughts joined the conversation on our Google form too.

Our latest Book Club meet up was last Thursday, a week later than usual as we were both away in London for YALC the week before. We decided to read Heartstopper: Volume One by Alice Oseman for July, a graphic novel developed from her webcomics. You can still read Heartstopper online for free if you wish to! We are continuing using the Google form responses in our Book Club posts to get direct thoughts from people who have read it – those who have both been to Book Club or can’t make it but still want to join the conversation.

I’ve been wanting to read a graphic novel for quite some time, one of length and a stand alone that i can really get in to. On a recent trip to Waterstones, i found This One Summer, which looked absolutely adorable and something that i’d really want to read pretty quickly. Luckily, my friend bought it and lent it to me, win win for me!

Alice Oseman has always been an author on my radar, but i’ve only really got involved with her novels and other works in the last year or so. I put a tweet out quite some time ago now, asking for comic or graphic novel recommendations, and someone told me about Heartstopper.

It’s been quite a long time since i sat down and read a graphic novel. I’ve felt like i haven’t had the time to sit and read one in one sitting (which is what i usually do) so i’ve ignored that section of my book shelves all together. However, i sat down with Paper Girls after having it on my shelf for over a year, finally.
