Looking for great #ownvoices women's fiction. Domestic, plot heavy stories about non-white, non-nuclear families please. #MSWL

Seeking upmarket/structurally interesting/sweeping love stories of all kinds. #MSWL : a high concept LGBTQ love story in the vein of ONE DAY.

#MSWL past/present narratives, historical women's fiction from 1890s on, must have crackling dialogue like Beatriz Williams.
#MSWL send me your unlikely friendship stories (20 yo & 80 yo), friendship novels in general (need really high stakes though!)
#MSWL send me your novels about complicated women! In the vein of Luckiest Girl Alive, Megan Abbott, Sweetbitter etc
