Follow Up - Books to Talk About - Final votes

A month ago I drew your attention to this UK/Irish World Book Day happening on March 6.

Spread the Word: Books to Talk About is a British/Irish campaign to help people discover books they might not otherwise have considered reading. There were100 books in the original list. 90 of the titles have now been discarded and 10 remain as a shortlist. Anyway, now the short list of 10 has been announced and here are the titles.
I have ** those I would expect to find on crime shelves in a bookshop, although none of them are categorised as crime fiction.

The final voting has been completed and here are the results (not that the results look at all conclusive to me):

21% - ** Boy A by Jonathan Trigell
14% - Ishq and Mushq by Priya Basil
12% - Salt & Honey by Candi Miller
10% - Gods in Alabama by Joshilyn Jackson
9% - Speaking of Love by Angela Young
8% - ** Death of a Murderer by Rupert Thomson
8% - ** In Cold Daylight by Pauline Rowson
7% - ** Playing with the Moon by Eliza Graham
6% - Lint by Steve Aylett
5% - Before I Die by Jenny Downham
