Novel Kicks Book Club: Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus

Hello July. Welcome. It’s lovely to see you.

Dare I say it but the weather might have finally got the memo about it being summer. Oh no, have I gone and jinxed it now?

With July stretching out in front of us there’s the promise of long, lovely summer evenings in places like the garden or sat in your favourite comfortable chair with the sunshine streaming through the window. Maybe relaxing on the beach is more your thing, or you’re counting down the days to that long awaited summer holiday.

I have to admit, when deciding what book to pick this month, I considered doing Christmas in July and a festive story. However, I didn’t want to wish the warm weather away when it has only just arrived.

What a better companion to have than a good book. This month’s novel has been recommended to me by many people and I can’t wait to read it.


This month’s pick is Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus.

Details about taking part in our book club are below but first, here’s a little about the book:

Chemist Elizabeth Zott is not your average woman. In fact, she would be the first to point out that there is no such thing.

Forced to leave her job at the institute, she soon finds herself the reluctant star of America’s most beloved cooking show, Supper at Six.

But as her following grows, not everyone is happy. Because as it turns out, Elizabeth Zott isn’t just teaching women to cook.

She’s daring them to change the status quo. One molecule at a time.
