It’s Women’s History Month and we’re looking for as many reasons as possible to celebrate the women in our lives. March is prime “because I love you” gift time, so we’ve rounded up five of our favorite feminist books to get for your best friend, sister, mother, aunt, or significant other. Because adding to someone’s feminist library is always a great idea.

The Ides of March is here, so we don’t know about you, but we’re watching our backs. In case you’re not in the know, Julius Caesar was famously stabbed to death on the Ides of March (that’s March 15, by the way) by his friend and protégé, Brutus. Since we love you so much and don’t want you to suffer the same fate, we’ve created a literature-based quiz to help you determine if your BFF is about to stab (or is currently stabbing) you in the back.

But have you considered what some of your favorite fictional characters would carry inside their fanny packs? No? Well, we have.

Today is March 10. Mar. 10. Mario. Get it?
Let's say we describe a few books, replacing character names, places, and other things with those from the many Super Mario games out there. Would you be able to guess what stories we're talking about? Anyone can play - don't worry about whether you're familiar with the games or not, and of course, we aren't rolling with anything too obscure. Try your hand at our game and tell us if you managed to guess them all! The answers are all the way at the bottom.
