Taya Devere's Between Two Doors is the first book in The Borderline Series. The author wastes no time in placing you in the mind of a distressed character on the brink of a pivotal decision. A pretty brutal and honest start.

The narrative style mirrors the inner state of the protagonist as it moves from a frentic start and settles down as other characters begin to influence the inner narrative.

The author captures how big everything is in the United States with funny, intriguiging metaphors. Any f

Between Two Doors takes the reader along the journey of a troubled young woman struggling to navigate her way through the painful choices she faces. The author explores these choices in the form of parallel realities presented in alternating chapters, a device I found fresh and intriguing.

Although the narrator describes many of her experiences in a witty, light-hearted way, there's no denying the seriousness of the issues dealt with in this novel - grief, mental illness, destructive relationship

A must read! The two stories are intertwined perfectly and will leave you dying to read book 2! It’s raw, yet funny and you finish it feeling like you know the main character like she was your best friend. I highly recommended this book!

It is unfortunate that in today’s society, many people face depression and anxiety. Anyone who has gone through this or is currently enduring it knows how difficult it is to keep moving forward. There is, however, a way to get away from it, to heal from it; multiple ways, in fact, as long as the right path is taken to recovery. Of course, this is easier said than done and each road has trials and tribulations, so the challenge is: which road works best for one person? Author Taya DeVere has broa ...more

Gripping and Heart-wrenching and perfectly paced.

Taya DeVere understands "trust the reader." She pulls us along with perfectly factored information without bogging us down in descriptive histories that would only stall the pace of the novel. I was forced to slow myself down to not flip pages too quickly and ruin the story. I just wanted to know what was going to happen!!

The heart-wrenching struggles of the MC are real, are powerful and relatable even as I've never experienced what she was goin

This book starts out with the main character in the grips of depression, and I think the author did a great job conveying the pain, ugliness, and despair she experienced in a way that was totally unique. I really love the two paths concept, and seeing the ways in which the two very different paths met and converged at different points, allowing the reader to draw their own conclusion about what that actually means. How much does each choice we make truly matter in the end? We can speculate, but ...more

It’s been a long time since I read a book I literally couldn’t put down.

From the very start, you’re thrown into our storyteller’s two realities, but without being confused as to which chapter belongs to which world. Taya DeVere eases you into both, while at the same time you have a feeling you’re in the middle of a brewing storm. This doesn’t, however, mean that the readers will have to face indecipherable situations and backgrounds; or characters and their traits. The author develops all of th

What a great read!

I loved the concept of working out two story lines from one crucial point. In real life when you have to make a choice you will never know what would happen if you had picked the other option, but here she works them both out. In doing this she could have made them very different, one goes down the drain and the other into heaven, but luckily she didn't, in both stories the main character stays herself, with doubts, hang ups, depression and all that.
I really enjoyed the way the

Should I rate when DNF?
This has (had) average 5 stars but just not grabbing me at all. Nothing special about the writing style. Not engaging with the main character. Frankly, don’t care.
