Real world DS/Algo book recommendation needed

I want to study data structures and algorithms again. I am a computer science graduate and have studied these in past and I can solve easy/medium leetcode problems.

What I want to learn is where these are used in real-world problems, while building software.

In my experience, I have mainly directly used HashMap, Sets, Queues, and Arrays while building applications.

I know about graphs are very useful and are used in many practical problems like dependency injection graph, dependency resolution in tools like Gradle, routing algorithms. Tress in databases, AST in compiler design.
Is there any book which teaches data structures and algorithms like this, by telling about their practical applications also?
