I usually read secular books on Shabbos but I'm thinking about reading the biography of Rav Chaim over yom tov.

Thank you everyone. How about autobiographies? Any suggestions?

Or historical?

I forgot that I have the book about R' Grossman and didn't have a chance to read it yet so thanks for that reminder!

I don't know how quickly you read or whether you like light or heavy reading.

Hamnet by Maggie O'Farrell
The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown
The Coffee Trader by David Kiss
A History of the World in Six Glasses by Tom Standage

Any of the Sophie Hannah Agatha Christie books, or any of the Richard Osman mysteries

Leah Gebber - Map the Starlight
E. G. Schwartz - Short Changed
Miriam Zakon - Free Fall
Zecharya Hoffman - Dual Discovery (great for Pesach if you haven't read it yet.) And Song of Redemption, though I haven't read it.

If you're open to biographies, I can give you some wonderful suggestions.
