67. Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus :: 9.5/10⭐️. Elizabeth Zott is a chemist but not your average chemist. She lives, practicing her craft in the 1950s and 1960s, a time when women, especially women in science were not taken seriously. The same which is very apparent in her coworkers at Hastings Research Institute. Elizabeth meets fellow chemist Calvin Evans, a famous researcher, whose views on equality are more progressive than his close minded coworkers. They fall in love and after a tragic world wind, Elizabeth finds herself a single mother, fired from her job, just trying to keep her life afloat. It’s at this time when a TV producer, who happens to be the father of a child at her daughter’s school, contacts her about hosting a cooking show. This show gives hope and empowerment and the possibility of change to the women watching. GUYS! This book was so good! I actually was hesitant to read it because I thought it was going to be a boring romance book, but not at all!! It was so empowering and frustrating and so good! I don’t have Apple TV, but it’s a series there if you want to watch. HIGHLY recommend this book!
