ANNOUNCING: The first ever MP! Bookish Awards – cast your vote now!

We like to celebrate amazing books here at MP! – had you noticed? And we figured what better way to properly fancy up our yelling about amazing books than by giving them awards.

That’s exactly why we’re proud to announce the first ever…

MP! Bookish Awards!

We have scoured the UK for the best of its books from the last year and now it’s time for you to decide your winners. That’s right, the MP! Bookish Awards! winners are decided by real readers just like you. Honestly, we’re glad you guys are handling this bit because there’s no way we could pick from this brilliant bunch, including Holly Bourne’s ‘What’s A Girl Gotta Do?’, Alwyn Hamilton ‘Rebel of the Sands’ and Alice Oseman’s ‘Radio Silence’.
