As Elul approaches, I am curious about a list of Seforim that are focused on Teshuva. The starting point, of course, is Shaarei Teshuva by Rabbeinu Yonah. The seforim could be all Hebrew, all English, and could date back all the way from Chazal until today. Thank you!

Note: if someone wants to make a community wiki that works, as I believe many will truly benefit from a list of Seforim on this topic.

In English, and with a specific focus on the High Holiday period, you have

A good place to start is the Hebrew Wikipedia page on Teshuva. At the bottom of that page it has a list of seforim and sources on the topic.

https://he.wikipedia.org/wiki/תשובה_(יהדות)

The top few mentioned there (aside from Rabbeinu Yona) among many more are the following:

  • משנה תורה לרמב"ם הלכות תשובה
  • המהר"ל מפראג, ספר נתיב התשובה
  • רבי שניאור זלמן מליאדי (אדמו"ר הזקן), איגרת התשובה - החלק השלישי בספר התניא.
  • ראי"ה קוק, אורות התשובה

  • Could you mention some, in case the link is broken?

    Here are the top few mentioned there. I doubt the wikipedia link will be broken anytime soon. That page has received consistent edits since 2004. משנה תורה לרמב"ם הלכות תשובה המהר"ל מפראג, ספר נתיב התשובה רבי שניאור זלמן מליאדי (אדמו"ר הזקן), איגרת התשובה - החלק השלישי בספר התניא. ראי"ה קוק, אורות התשובה

Another one is the חבור התשובה by the Meiri. In addition, many seforim that deal with Elul and Rosh Hashanah/ Yom Kippur deal with Teshuva. And you can check a seforim store for English works, such as this one.
