About Me

Welcome to my blog! My name is Shauna, an old-soul with an adoration of all things vintage, medieval and ancient. Join me on an adventure into the exploration of pieces of literature, art, and films that may have been forgotten in modern society. I look forward to also expressing my book writing journey with all of you. My current novel-in-process is entitled “The Seven Wonders: The Lure of the Lore,” which is an intended historical-fantasy series.

What vintage books do I own? 

I own quite a few novels ranging from the early 1800s to the late 1900s. My favorites (based on antique quality) include:

  • “Anna Karenina” by Leo Tolstoy, a 1952 edition. It’s a special edition in an awesome box – I picked this novelty up at “The Secret Garden” located in NJ.
  • “The Pipwick Papers” by Charles Dickens, estimated to being an early 1800s edition. This one was a gift from my boyfriend, Nick.
  • “The Canterbury Tales” by Geoffrey Chaucer, an early 1900s edition. Also a gift from my boyfriend.
  • “Winesburg, Ohio” by Sherwood Anderson, an edition from 1937. Purchased in a vintage bookstore located in New Hope, NJ.
