Non-fiction from those with a strong platform, especially written by BIPOC creators. Can be a unique perspective regarding art, science, food, current issues, mental health, etc.

This one could be because I want tacos, but give me food #MSWL. Either a magic system based on food, or a enemies to lovers about rival taco trucks. Heck it doesn't even have to be about tacos. (I just want to eat this taco image).
