contemporary retellings of non-Western folklore have been on my wish list for a while now, but i'd also like to see BIPOC- and queer-led reinventions of ~the classics~ like @NghiVoWriting's THE CHOSEN AND THE BEAUTIFUL

voicey stories of diaspora, migration, displacement, being 1st or 2nd gen, being mixed-race/third-culture, having families split apart by borders, all of itβ€”whether it's contemporary like BROWN GIRLS by @DaphnePalasiA or genre-transcending like FOLKLORN by @AngelaMHur

✨ contemporary and well-researched historical queer romance, with pining and butterflies and swoony tension and steaminess and a REALLY strong hook
✨ books that celebrate books, both MG and adult
✨ heists, cons, scams, the more glam the better (no cishet man protags)
