Lost in Translation Tag

I want to thank Ashley @ Red-Haired Ash Reads for tagging me! Ashley has a fantastic blog, and, if you haven’t already, you should totally go and check it out! This tag was originally created by Eryn Love Your Shelf, and it sounds like so much fun!

The Rules:

  • Pick the last book you read.
  • Put that book in Google Translate and translate it into 3 different languages, then back to English. (Please put which languages you used to translate them!)
  • See how close (or how far) it is to the original book title
  • Lastly, put the original book title at the bottom and talk about your last read!

Fun, right? Let’s take a look at the translated title and see if you can figure out the original.

Translated Title:

Bastard of My Heart


English – Romanian – Swahili – Turkish – English

The translation isn’t super far off! Can you guess it?

HINT: It’s an upcoming book by Lorraine Heath.

Actual Title:

Scoundrel of My Heart

I just started reading Scoundrel of My Heart today, and I’m enjoying it! I’ve been in such a historical romance mood lately, and I love Lorraine Heath! I was excited to hear that she had a new series and was thrilled to receive this ARC!

  1. Ooh, how fun! I think I’ve seen one other blogger do this one before and that translation was so off and literal. This one was pretty good! 😍 Can’t wait to give it a try! Thanks for the tag 😊
