Hello there! I’m Shealea from Shut up, Shealea. I like sunflowers, research, and diverse books. 🌻
Caffeine Book Tours is a little brainchild of mine that has grown into a service that is much bigger and more impactful than I could’ve ever imagined.
I am both astonished and immensely proud of its flourishing, and I hope to have you onboard with us, sipping coffee and sharing our love for literature. ☕📚
She is sunflowers & thunderstorms
Shealea is a Communication Research graduate from the University of the Philippines – Diliman. She first started blogging about books in December 2015 and currently creates literature, media, and lifestyle content on her website.
She is extremely passionate about diversity and representation in books and in all forms of media, and this passion is best seen in her projects:
- Augvocacy, an annual collaborative project wherein she invites fellow bloggers to discuss advocacy, activism, and calls relevant to marginalized communities and media representation;
- Asian Bookish Creators Directory, a helpful database that features more than 500 Asian book bloggers, bookstagrammers, and booktubers;
- Year of the Asian Reading Challenge (YARC), a year-round reading challenge that is dedicated to supporting books written by Asian authors;
Moreover, she believes in the importance of inclusiveness and accessibility especially in an increasingly globalized, albeit Western-centric, world. Her love for diverse books and strongly held beliefs eventually paved the way to the formation of Caffeine Book Tours.
