Timothée Chalamet: 5 book adaptations he has acted on!

We have been a bit obsessed over Timothee Chalamet lately, have we not? We love his fashion style. We love his appearances on every talk show! He speaks french almost perfectly, and his whole character is lovely!

I have also loved the video for Entertainment Weekly! They are be breath-taking and his Met Gala, and just to put the cherry on top, he is a reader! Timothée Chalamet has even recommended a few books to his fans that you can find in some of his interviews!

How not eat up everything he does?? So I am sure you have followed his career as I have, but let’s check this list of 5 book adaptations that he has been part of the cast!


Beautiful Boy: A Father’s Journey Through His Son’s Addiction by David Sheff

Starring Steve Carell and Timothee Chalamet, Beautiful Boy is the story of how a father fights and goes through his son journey of addition. A memoir, written by David Sheff, asks questions of what happened with their family, their boy, and what was done wrong for them to have to face such difficulties. A charming boy who was sweet, joyous, funny and innocent change drastically after falling on the claws of crystal meth.

This book is an Amazon Original and available to all Prime members. Incredibly moving, Amazon brings to live this story that we all should be aware of. Fun fact to keep in mind is that Nic Sheff wrote his own memoir about his addiction in his book Tweak, so Amazon Studios put both memoirs together for this shocking story.

Little Women by Louisa M. Alcott

There isn’t much to say about Little Women! Such a beautiful story about strong female characters who go against what society expects from her, but still a story that is really emotional. To be honest, the March family is so sweet and such a role model to follow, although sometimes they over-do it haha

The March family lives in a small house next door to the Laurence mansion, where young Theodore Laurence, known as Laurie, and his aged grandfather have only each other for company. Old Mr. Laurence is wealthy, and he indulges every wish of his grandson, but often Laurie is lonely. When the lamps are lit and the shades are up in the March house, he can see the four March sisters, with their mother in the center, seated around a cheerful fire. He learns to know them by name before he meets them, and, in his imagination, he almost feels himself a member of the family.

Dune (Delux Edition) by Frank Herbert

Dune is just too on the nose. We know about Dune and Timothee’s role in it. Dune has been a “joke” on TikTok for people trying to get into it and simply not getting it or being too much into the 400 pages of exposition… but sci-fi fans will argue any point and even explain to their followers why that is a great novel!

Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, heir to a noble family tasked with ruling an inhospitable world where the only thing of value is the “spice” melange, a drug capable of extending life and enhancing consciousness. Coveted across the known universe, melange is a prize worth killing for, but someone betrays the House Atreides which will take Paul on a journey toward a destiny greater than he could ever have imagined.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl

Willy Wonka’s famous chocolate factory is opening at last! But only five lucky children will be allowed inside. And the winners are: an enormously fat boy whose hobby is eating; a spoiled-rotten brat whose parents are wrapped around her little finger; a dim-witted gum-chewer with the fastest jaws around; a toy pistol-toting gangster-in-training who is obsessed with television; and our Hero, a boy who is honest and kind, brave, and good and ready for the wildest time of his life!

This children’s story has been adapted to the big screen a few times already. One by Gene Wilder, 1971, and Johnny Deep, which was so different and so funny! I haven’t watched the first version, but I am so watching Timothee in this upcoming version as Wonka a prequel to this story!

Call Me by Your Name by Andre Aciman

Call Me by Your Name is the story of a sudden and powerful romance that blossoms between an adolescent boy and a summer guest at his parents’ cliffside mansion on the Italian Riviera. Each is unprepared for the consequences of their attraction, when, during the restless summer weeks, unrelenting currents of obsession, fascination, and desire intensify their passion and test the charged ground between them. Recklessly, they verge toward the one thing both fear they may never truly find again: total intimacy. It is an instant classic and one of the great love stories of our time.

I know about the controversy surrounding this story, one of the actors, and simply the author, but I cannot help enjoying this book so much. I related to Elio a lot. I love how melodious was the story and the setting. How summer sounded in Italy and how it can be the birthplace of an intense romance and obsessive crush that not even decades apart could submit into oblivion.
