What's the Story: Writer's Game

I’m not sure if this has been done before, but I think it can be a fun game. Here are the rules:

The first person starts out by saying a made-up book title. The next person would then say a few things about that book. It can be genre, characters, plot, etc. They can be as general or specific as they want. Here is an example:

1: [name_f]Cat[/name_f] in the [name_f]Hat[/name_f]?
2: a children’s book about a rainy day. [name_u]Harry[/name_u] [name_m]Potter[/name_m] and the Sorceror’s / Philosopher’s [name_m]Stone[/name_m]?
3: a boy named [name_u]Harry[/name_u] has to fight an evil wizard named Voldemort. Great Expectations?

And so on.
