Top 5 Tuesday: Books that would make a good montage scene

Hey, guys!
It’s Tuesday, which means it’s time for a bookish favorites post. Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Meeghan over on Meeghan Reads and is quite simple: check out the topic and write a post with your picks.
This post continues last month’s spirit a bit where we talked a lot about adaptations. Since I love both books and movies, I was so excited to write all those posts and I’m also happy to conclude with this one about books that would make for a great montage scene!

#1 Skulduggery Pleasant

I really need to stop raving about these books. 😂 But hear me out! The Skulduggery Pleasant novels feature many amazing fight scenes. Moreover, Stephanie spends a lot of time training not only her magic but also her different fighting skills. Some of that would make for a marvelous montage scene!

#2 The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue

I finished this one last month, and boy I’m not over it yet. Addie LaRue has been alive for quite a while and throughout the book we get a glimpse into different moments of her life, different countries, different times in history. Should this book ever be adaptated into a film, I’m pretty sure we’d get a montage showing Addie’s life throughout the ages.

#3 The Cruel Prince

So, this book series has a two things that would make for great montage scenes. First of all, the escapades of Cardan. He loves to be bad, he loves to party, he loves to be a fancy little shit. Give me a montage of drunk revels!
And then we have Jude. She does a lot to train herself and prepare herself for what is to come (dancing around spoilers here!), so I think that could be assambled into an interesting montage!

#4 The Once and Future Witches

This is another book I finished recently and absolutely loved. You can guess from the title that it features witches, but another important point is the women’s movement, the suffragettes. In a movie you couldn’t depict all the meetings and efforts written about in the book, but it might make for a good montage scenes to show what’s going on!

#5 The Boundless

The Beholder and the Boundless both feature some travelling scenes. However, it is in The Boundless specifically that we have one extended bit of story (and quite an unhappy one) that even reads a little like a montage scene. I can’t really explain what it is without some major spoilers but while reading it, I swear I just had a perfect movie montage scene in my head.

What’s your favorite book that has a scene that would make a great montage? Let me know in the comments!
