All The Light We Cannot See, by Anthony Doerr. The first depiction of a blind character that I've ever read.

Going through the Raven’s mark series again, just finished Ravencry, on to Crowfall.

Prayer of the Heart by George Maloney.

It's surprisingly orthodox and sound for a Jesuit author of the era (despite some liberal use of the words 'mantra' and 'nirvana'). It's a shame that the author, a Catholic priest, would later convert to Orthodoxy. If anyone is interested in the Jesus Prayer, here's a phenomenal little book with an imprimi potest.

Kathryn Warner, Richard II, a true king's fall, which initially seemed overly intricate, nearly repeated the series of mini bios, but it had a purpose. Richard II had a very sorry fate.
Padre Pio: Pray, hope, and don't worry. Worry is useless. God is merciful and will hear your prayer.
