Upcoming Books to Movies

This is one of my favorite books, written by a great historian.  Here's the blurb from today's Shelf Awareness:

Universal optioned the movie rights to Erik Larson's In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler's Berlin for Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman to produce through their Playtone Company, with Hanks "eyeing the project as a potential starring vehicle," according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Larson's earlier book, The Devil and the White City, "is in development by Leonardo DiCaprio and his Appian Way shingle," THR noted.

If you haven't read both of these books, you should.  I'm bossy, I know.
What are you reading?
