D.E.A.R. Monday (Drop Everything and Read) - Week of January 4

I'm starting a new weekly feature that will hopefully get me (and you) reading more in 2016.

Every Monday will be D.E.A.R. Monday, where I will share what I've finished reading, what I'm currently reading, and what's up next on my TBR list.
