Teaser Tuesdays

teasertuesdays

Just quote a couple of spoiler-free sentences from the book you’re reading to tempt other readers.

Here is mine:-

“Fleur was the name hazardously bestowed at birth, as always in these cases before they know what you are going to turn out like. Not that I looked too bad, it was only that Fleur wasn’t the right name, and yet it was mine, as are the names of those melancholy Joys, those timid Victors, the inglorious Glorias and the materialistic Angelas one is bound to meet in the course of a long life of change and infiltration; and I once met a Lancelot who, I assure you, had nothing to do with chivalry.”

It doesn’t tell you too much about the book – which is wonderful – but I just had to share those particular sentences.

  1. The name came from another literary Fleur – Fleur Forsyte from the Forsyte Saga. My cousin named her kitten Fleur and I was trying to recall the book and the character, but it just wouldn’t come to me. I knew it was alliterative and the name Fleur Fisher came into my head – and stuck!

  2. Great teaser! My first name is Joy and people are always quick to tell me how well it suits. It’s gets kind of old sometimes, but better that that to be thought dour Joy. šŸ˜‰

  3. Love this teaser! A wonderfully written couple of sentences that made me smile. I completely understood what the speaker was saying. But I think the name Fleur ius beautiful.

    Thank you!
