Lost in Translation

Lost In Translation is a very fun tag created by Eryn @ Love Your Shelf.

I was tagged by Tiction @ Fictionally Crazy. Thanks so much!!

And here are the rules:

  1. Pick the last book you read.
  2. 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!)
  3. See how close (or how far) it is to the original book title.
  4. Lastly, put the original book title at the bottom and talk about your last read!

The languages I used English – Arabic– Swahili– Icelandic – English  

They gave me:

Salt Queen and Luck

What do you think the original title is?

I have to say it isn’t too, far off & it’s really funny when you find out.











The Empress of Salt & Fortune by Nghi Vo

I just finished reading this and even though it’s super short it leaves a big impact. It’s about empire, storytelling, and the anger of women. I’m very curious to see where this story goes.

The Empress of Salt and Fortune (The Singing Hills Cycle, #1)

I tag anyone who hasn’t done this yet!

Did you guess it? Have you read this story?
