Belatedly joining in with Cornflower's and Simon's game, the idea being that you complete each phrase with the name of a book that you've read this year. So here goes:
One time on holiday, We Bought A Zoo (Benjamin Mee)
Weekends at my house are Planet Dinosaur.
My neighbour is Doreen (Barbara Noble)
My boss is The Hare with Amber Eyes (Edmund de Waal)
My superhero secret identity is NY JS DB 62 (David Bailey)
You wouldn't like me when I'm angry, because The Very Thought of You ... (Rosie Alison)
I'd win a gold medal in Making Conversation (Christine Longford)
I'd pay good money for A Visit from the Goon Squad (Jennifer Egan)
If I were Prime Minister I would Let the Great World Spin (Colum McCann)
When I don't have good books I ... Decline and Fall (Evelyn Waugh). Sorry, Cornflower, for copying but nothing else would fit.
Loud talkers at the cinema should be All Quiet on the Western Front (Erich Maria Remarque)

Anybody else inspired to have a go?

The gold medal category is brilliant every meme I look at! And is your neighbour actually called Doreen, because that would be brilliant?!

That was hilarious, Mary!

It would be brilliant, Simon. But I'm ashamed to say that I only know one neighbour by name - and she isn't a Doreen!

It's fun, isn't it? So glad Simon got the ball rolling!

It's funny how somehow the books always fit, Karen.
