It?s nothing like co-ed club hockey back in Georgia! First of all? There?s checking. And then, there is Helloooo, Internet Land. Bitty here! Y?all... I might not be ready for this.

    This was cute. Almost too cute. Take breaks lest ye be overcome by sugarshock. Hockey. Central, but in the sense that these kids's lives revolve around their team; you as the reader do not have to spend a lot of time seeing hockey moves, nor will you gain much understanding of the ...

    Check, please!: #Hockey is the first volume collecting from the popular webcomic from first generation Nigerian (!)-American author Ngozi Ukazu who did a LOT of research to make a comic about a white man's sport she basically knew nothing about, and in the process, falling in love with...

    Those who rated this comic highly, can you help me out? Am I reading this wrong? I am all on board with a story about a gentle, pie-baking gay hockey player who gets embraced by his bro/dumbass teammates and finds love. And I can understand why I personally didn't like how this stor...

    This ARC was given to me by my beautiful friend Lilly from Lair of Books! (Thank you so much! I love you!) You all, this was the cutest. No, scratch that; Bitty is the cutest! And this graphic novel was nothing short of a joy to read! Hockey games, behind the scenes practices, a ...

    This series is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I read it first in college, reread it as I was graduating, and now I get to read the full first two years as a collected, physical book. Bitty owns my heart and I plan to cry about him for the rest of time. He?s my p...

    HANDS DOWN ONE OF MY FAVORITE YA GRAPHIC NOVELS I'VE EVER READ. I LOVE MY HOCKEY BUTTS *AHEM* BOYS. I adored the Samwell team! I also got hungry for pie. The banter, the vlogs, tweets, the romance, the hockey/haus shenanigans = so much fun!! ...

    Lots of cute moments, but it never grabbed me! It all felt quite disparate and episodic, which makes sense since it was a webcomic, but I would have liked for it to have felt a bit more like it had a big arc it was working towards! ...

    THIS WAS SUCH A WONDERFUL STORY! I love a good graphic novel! But I also loved every element of this story. It was funny, clever, and just interesting to me. I?m not a hockey person, but I love a good sports story. I also love a good LGBTQ+ sport romance. And while that?s not t...

    3.5 stars This book had me laughing out loud before the page count even hit double digits! I was not expecting this to have such a tasteful sense of humor in a way that was both evident in dialogue and the clever way the panels transitioned and cut off. I thought Bittle (Bitty? Idk ...

    OH MY WORD, it's so cute I'm gonna die. This is one of the most precious, laugh-out-loud, heartwarming, charming damn things I've ever read in my life. I need a million more volumes, please. I cried happy tears at the end and I don't even care. And Bitty is such a precious little bean ...

    So I know I just posted a review talking about how a book was too feel-good for me. This is definitely feel-good, but I really enjoyed it. I think that's because not everything goes well and sometimes and characters fail. I'm not huge into hockey, but the Haus was a lot like my old fra...

    This beloved webcomic-turned-graphic-novel has a 4.46 star average for almost 6000 reviews. Wow. But it was a total miss for me. I originally encountered it back when it was a webcomic, but I lost interest partway though. When it came out as a book I decided to give it another chanc...
