April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

Heartstopper, Vol 2 by Alice Oseman

Heartstopper: Volume Two Heartstopper: Volume Two by Alice Oseman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Charlie and Nick’s awkwardness continues to be adorable as they navigate the early days of their relationship. I think the thing I appreciate most about this volume is how Oseman handles Nick’s uncertainty about discovering who he is and coming to terms with that and how it’s made very clear that no one should force you or rush you into making these decisions. Each person’s coming out story is different and personal and should be done solely on their terms and when they’re ready. Charlie is understanding and patient and let’s Nick take his time in discovering who he is. It’s so refreshing to see a queer love story told like this. Everyone should be reading this series!
