I am exactly the same! I read a ton of books with my kids so that we can chat about it. But, truth be told I would probably read it without kids I'm an English Lit major so I have always been a book worm. When I have a second I need to go through this list and add them to my Goodreads account! I just finished Fahrenheit 451 and I loved it.
Kim for your daughter.... has she read The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane? Several teachers have recommended it to me and I just downloaded it to start with my girls. Also, mentioned was the Storybound series. I actually talked to a bunch of kids that were reading it at school and they loved it. That is next on our list
