We really need a new topic.

From the previous thread:
Titles in Alphabetical order by first letter, but you have to have actually read the book! (We may have to fudge some letters, but we shall see).

Try not to repeat a book someone else has used (Easier to see if we use touchstones please!).

Playing off 558 in the last thread

Misspent Youth by Peter F. Hamilton

Reminder: Please verify your touchstones when posting!
