6: Wholesome but quirky. This has been in my wheelhouse a LONG time, and I want more of it. You know slice of life anime? You know @_wholesomegames? That. In book form, or graphic novel. Adult only, please. Bonus for cottagecore aesthetics.
5: Author-illustrator graphic novels (in all age groups) and picture books. I could make a list a mile long of favourites, but think TEA DRAGONS, THIS ONE SUMMER, BE PREPARED, and anything by the Fan Brothers or Jessie Sima.
