Agnieszka (agnieszka7) | 563 comments Since I got two additional books not planned for this month because of the cover - I decided to join the challenge:

The Warrior Spy A Thriller (A Warrior Spy Thriller Book 1) by Dony Jay Nacht im Central Park by Guillaume Musso (audiobook) = Central Park by Guillaume Musso

A question: Do audiobooks count against this challange too?

Nacht im Central Park by Guillaume Musso finished March 24: I loved this one so much I would like to rate it 6* out of 5* (and it's correct that way) - I suppose this book can make it into my top ten this year. If you are into suspense a must read ;-)
The Warrior Spy A Thriller (A Warrior Spy Thriller Book 1) by Dony Jay finished April 1: Usually I love espionage thriller and I'm always looking for new Christian (suspense) authors because I hope to discover some great books or new authors for the future - so I tried this one out and very sadly I have to say it's one of the worst books I ever read. If it wouldn't be for this challange I wouldn't finish it at all. My strong dislike from the beginning hasn't changed until the very end. If it would be possible I would rate it with 0*. I can recommend this one only for those looking for hard-core Christian espionage thrillers and prefer strong (even extrem) faith contents over plausibility (hope it's the correct word) and don't plan to give it to readers outside the Christian church.
