Heartstopper Books in Order with Publisher Descriptions:
Heartstopper Book 1:
Shy and softhearted Charlie Spring sits next to rugby player Nick Nelson in class one morning. A warm and intimate friendship follows that soon develops into something more for Charlie, who doesn’t think he has a chance.
But Nick is struggling with feelings of his own, and as the two grow closer and take on the ups and downs of high school, they come to understand the surprising and delightful ways in which love works.
Heartstopper Book 2:
Nick and Charlie are best friends, but one kiss has changed everything. In the aftermath, Charlie is sure that Nick isn’t interested, but Nick is more confused than ever.
Love works in surprising ways, and Nick comes to see the world from a new perspective. He discovers all sorts of things about his friends, his family… and himself.
Heartstopper Book 3:
Charlie didn’t think Nick could ever like him back, but now they’re officially boyfriends. Nick has even found the courage to come out to his mom.
But coming out isn’t something that happens just once, and Nick and Charlie try to figure out when to tell their friends that they’re dating.
Not being out to their classmates gets even harder during a school trip to Paris. As Nick and Charlie’s feelings get more serious, they’ll need each other more than ever.
Heartstopper Book 4:
Charlie and Nick’s relationship has been going really well, and Charlie thinks he’s ready to say those three little words: I love you.
Nick feels the same way, but he’s got a lot on his mind — especially the thought of coming out to his dad and the fact that Charlie might have an eating disorder.
As a new school year begins, Charlie and Nick will have to learn what love really means.
Heartstopper Book 5:
Nick and Charlie are very much in love. They’ve finally said those three little words, and Charlie has almost persuaded his mum to let him sleep over at Nick’s house… but with Nick going off to university next year, is everything about to change?
Extra Heartstopper Books:
Absence makes the heart grow fonder… right?
Everyone knows that Nick and Charlie love their nearly inseparable life together. But soon Nick will be leaving for university, and Charlie, a year younger, will be left behind.
Everyone’s asking if they’re staying together, which is a stupid question… or at least that’s what Nick and Charlie assume at first.
As the time to say goodbye gets inevitably closer, both Nick and Charlie start to question whether their love is strong enough to survive being apart.
Charlie is sure he’s holding Nick back… and Nick can’t tell what Charlie’s thinking.
Things spiral from there.
Everyone knows that first loves rarely last forever. What will it take for Nick and Charlie to defy the odds?

Originally, Oseman published Heartstopper as a webcomic on Tumblr and Tapas but its growing success caught the eye of Hachette Children’s Group who later published the print series.
Oseman’s story about how she became a published author is inspiring for she published her first novel, Solitaire, when she was nineteen.

Has Heartstopper Been Made Into a Movie or TV Series?
Yes! After you read the Heartstopper books in order, you’ll want to check out the Heartstopper TV show on Netflix!
Season one of Heartstopper was one of the most popular romance books to TV series of 2022, releasing in April 2022 with Alice Oseman as the writer, creator and executive producer.
It stars Joe Locke as Charlie Spring, Kit Connor as Nick Nelson and Oliva Colman as Sarah Nelson, Nick’s mother.
Due to its huge success, Netflix renewed the Heartstopper TV series for seasons two and three.
Filming for Heartstopper season two wrapped up on December 2, 2022, though there is no word yet on its release date.
I imagine we can expect it to be included in one of the romance books to TV series releasing in 2023.
Given that there are soon to be five books in the series, I’m sure we will see seasons four and possibly five of the TV show to finish off the book series as well.
