The Rubank series is pretty inclusive. The advanced book 1 has several trill exercises as well as a number of etudes. I know there are others, but this one always comes to mind.

Marcel moice, is so great for improving tecnique but it,s more like scales and arpegies and doesnt have melody, especially in book1,and it has also book 2,3 that have a little melody.
you can also try a tune a day, it has 2 books,and have etudes ,and famous short pieces from all composers.

I use:
Taffenal & Gaubert:Method 2 (scale/arpeggio/chord exercises, two sections of etudes, some orchestral excerpts...)
Moyse:Exercises Journaliers (scale/arpeggio/chord exercises with a recommended daily practice order going over a month)
Anderson etudes
Karg-Elert (more modern etudes)

Some of my students use:
Reichert-7 daily exercises
Cavally- Progressive and Melodious studies (collection from a bunch of different composers)
Rubank series is good too

Hope some of that helps!
