To celebrate the National Year of Reading, we are sharing some first lines from books on our bookshelves. So, every Friday for the rest of the year we’re posting a fabulous first line here on Soup Blog.
Here’s today’s Fabulous First Line*:
“When will they be here?’ asked Ramona Quimby, who was supposed to be dusting the living room but instead was twirling around trying to make herself dizzy.
What do you think—if you opened a book and read that first line, would you want to read on?
Do you know the name of the book? (We’ll put it right at the end of this post so you can try to guess first.)

Yes! I would read any ‘Ramona’ book when I was little – just because they were the first books I came across that had my name in. I still have the original books to this day and one day my daughter will read them!
Ah, yes. There’s something extra magical about a book featuring a main character with your own name. 🙂
