Comparing Titles #1: Vision in White

Comparing Titles #1

Welcome to Comparing Titles! A spin-off of my Comparing Covers meme. Here, I will compare foreign titles’ translations and how different it is from the English version. I use Google translate for title translations. Vote on your favorite below!


While unpacking all my books from the “big move”, I came across my beloved Nora Roberts books. Bride Quartet is one of my favorite series and it got me thinking about my Comparing Covers (I did do one from her other series: Key of Light). So to start off my new meme, I decided to feature Vision in White as my first Comparing Titles.


I always love how words/meanings translate over to other languages and I can tell that I’m going to have a lot of fun with this.

Vision in White by Nora Roberts (Original-English)

I think my favorite is the Swedish title. What a fun idea for a feature. Love it!

This is so interesting to see how they all look! I’m with everyone else in loving the Spring Dream title best.

What a great idea for comparing books! I like the Spring Dream title best I think. The Finnish one seems very vague. I guess the local publishers have a good idea what will appeal to their readers?

Oh what a fun idea! Especially using Google Translate lol. These all are pretty nice though. I also like the dream ones and voted for Spring Dream!


I like Spring Dream although I think the Italian one seems like the most faithful translation of the title. Maybe? Ha ha. The finnish one, while I like it, seems the least similar in title.

I think Spring Dream is my favorite.

I like the German cover.


I really like the Swedish Cover, but I like the German translation best!
