Cover image and summary from Goodreads:

If you could see the future, would you want to? After the disturbing visions Riley and his friends see turn out to be more than hallucinations, fate takes a dangerous twist in this dark and suspenseful page-turner.

Riley and his friends are gearing up for their senior year by spending one last night hanging out in the woods, drinking a few beers, and playing Truth or Dare. But what starts out as a good time turns sinister when they find a mysterious pair of binoculars. Those who dare to look through them see strange visions, which they brush off as hallucinations. Why else would Riley see himself in bed with his best friend’s girlfriend—a girl he’s had a secret crush on for years?

In the weeks that follow, the visions begin to come true...including a gruesome murder. One of Riley’s closest friends is now the prime suspect. But who is the murderer? Have Riley and his friends really seen the future through those mysterious binoculars? And what if they are powerless to change the course of events?

This was a quick read that added a bit of a paranormal twist to a mystery.

I really liked the premise of This Is How It Ends, but didn’t feel any real attachment to the characters. I found myself especially intrigued by the supernatural element of the story, but actually wish it had been a bigger focus. The explanation was interesting but left me wanting more!

This was a fun read though; recommended if you’re looking for a well-paced, intriguing mystery.
