MP! Reads: our new YouTube series featuring all your favourite authors reading from the latest releases

There’s something special about an author reading their own book out loud. Your own imagination can do so much, but words printed on a page don’t translate the pacing and tone and voice of the book as well as when they’re spoken by their creator.

That’s why we here at MP! thought it would be an awesome idea to start a YouTube series featuring just that: authors reading their books.

5SOS cover HSM on Snapchat and we think Ashton will be cast as Troy in the remake.

While 5SOS may be very busy planning their setlist ahead of their tour which is just days away, they’ve still managed to squeeze in some time to bugger about together. It’s important to do that, though, to make sure they’re not overworked.

The Cliffoconda took to Snapchat to post Mr Irwin singing out his little heart during a cover of High School Musical’s ‘Breaking Free’ and it’s beautiful.

We’ve shed a tear of this beauty. Magnificent. Simply magnificent.

round of applause

If there’s going to be a remake of our favourite movie musical, we hope Ashton gets casted as Troy Bolton. We think Luke would make a fabulous Ryan. Meanwhile, Michael would totally be the skater dude with the cello and Cal could be Zeke who loves to bake because we can totally see him making a mean Creme Brûlée.
