Affinity held the lead for the first two weeks of voting, but Fingersmith had a surge of votes this weekend. In the end, it was not enough to win. Affinity never lost it's lead. Here's the full voting breakdown:
- Affinity: 43%
- Fingersmith: 36%
- The Night Watch: 21%
- Tipping the Velvet: 0% (I hope the lack of love for TtV means you've all already read it!)
You have all month to read the book. I'll be reading it in the next two weeks and will review it around the middle of the month--that also serves as your reminder to read it before the end of the month. On Wednesday, July 31, I'll host a discussion of the book here. The Twitter hashtag is #BacklistClub. Participate as much or as little as you like. If you'd like to post about The Backlist Book Club, grab the button and go!
