In book club fiction I'd love to see women who gaslight, girlboss, and gatekeep, historical fiction similar to Taylor Jenkins Reid, and/or female-led retellings.

When the seasons start to turn, I find myself reaching for the comfort of a good classic. I also enjoy exploring new ground with a good retelling. Think along the lines of The Bear and the Nightingale, Spinning Silver, The Deathless Girls and, of course, the iconic Bridget Jones.
