The Art of Racing in the Rain just hit theatres and we’re so curious to see it. The movie, based on Garth Stein’s 2008 novel of the same name, centers on Enzo, a dog with a philosopher’s soul. He’s obsessed with opposable thumbs (who isn’t?) and is fascinated with the racing aspirations of his human Denny, a young widow grieving the death of his wife and custody loss of his daughter.
We’re not crying, you’re crying. To celebrate the decade-long journey of bringing this book to the big screen, we’re making a wish list of other dog-loving books that should be made into movies. So without further ado.

But we’re bookworms, so of course we celebrate sisters in the nerdiest way we know how: with a quiz to determine who your literary sister might be.

We know you’re a fan of badass characters. You wouldn’t be here otherwise. Women changing the game, characters we think Sandra Oh should play, famous literary bachelors who would thrive on The Bachelorette -- it’s all fair game. But what about the pop culture parents? What about the caregivers who don’t get nearly enough credit? Well today is all about them.
