I loved Addie LaRue—anyone have suggestions in that vein? The author’s other books seem more fantasy/sci-fi, which isn’t typically my thing.

You might like P. Djeli Clark’s recent books about djinn in a magical pseudomodern Cairo!
Books like this one recommends these. IIRC, Cloud Atlas is TERRIBLE, so I’m not sure about the quality of the others.
Goodreads recommends these, but I don’t think they’re very good matches. Some good stuff in there (shoutout Martha Wells), but I don’t see how they’re related at all.
Literature and movies suggests another odd set of readalikes.
Bibliode’s list includes The Time Travelers Wife which was my first thought, but that book is pretty out of date and kind of racist and depressing, so maybe not?
Grumpy Readers, do you have book recommendations for minca?
