Goodreads synopsis:

Helloooo, Internet Land. Bitty here!

Y’all… I might not be ready for this. I may be a former junior figure skating champion, vlogger extraordinaire, and very talented amateur pâtissier, but being a freshman on the Samwell University hockey team is a whole new challenge. It’s nothing like co-ed club hockey back in Georgia! First of all? There’s checking. And then, there is Jack—our very attractive but moody captain.

A collection of the first half of the megapopular webcomic series of the same name, Check, Please!: #Hockey is the first book of a hilarious and stirring two-volume coming-of-age story about hockey, bros, and trying to find yourself during the best four years of your life.

My thoughts

Ok, I will keep this short, I LOVED this comic so much! what a treat.  We follow Eric Bittle A.K.A. Bitty who is starting college and has now joined the hockey team.  Bitty was a professional ice skater before being drafted by the college to play hockey, and Bitty loves baking pies LOL, and is a popular blogger besides being so stinking cute and he’s also gay, but he’s not out yet.

I really enjoyed the friendships, the teammates were so likeable as well, this was just such an enjoyable read, and I’m glad that I finally picked it up after seeing it around for so long.  I believe you will enjoy this graphic novel even if you are not a fan of hockey, believe am not either but I still loved this so much.

Overall, I really, really loved this book, definitely agree with it being a feel good read.
