Top 5 Wednesday: Character Tropes

To find out more about T5W, check out the Goodreads group.
I've been really busy this month, so I've been neglecting my Top 5 Wednesday posts.  However, I'm back this week to discuss my favorite character tropes.

Three of my choices are very closely related, and many characters overlap each category.  Therefore, I suppose you could reason that I have a literary "type."  So, please pardon me for my lack of variety.

Let's get into it.

Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again....

The novel begins in Monte Carlo, where our heroine is swept off her feet by the dashing widower Maxim de Winter and his sudden proposal of marriage. Orphaned and working as a lady's maid, she can barely believe her luck. It is only when they arrive at his massive country estate that she realizes how large a shadow his late wife will cast over their lives - resenting her with a lingering evil that threatens to destroy their marriage from beyond the grave.

Comic Book 101 - Formats

I am by no means a comic book expert.  I gained interest in the medium only in the past few years, and I've hardly made an impact in my exploration of the many excellent titles and genres.

Yet, I realize that comic book reading is becoming trendier and many people are also newcomers.  Therefore, it stands to reason that others are having the same issue with comic book terminology as I did in the beginning.

So, this post is all about the various formats comics are offered in.

This actually took quite a bit of consideration to complete, so enjoy my answers.

June Wrap-Up

I didn't get a great amount of reading in this month, but I'm accepting of this. Some months are just like that.

Top 5 Wednesday: Favorite Chapter Headings

To learn more about Top 5 Wednesday, check out the Goodreads group.
This week's Top 5 Wednesday topic is favorite chapter headings, which is quite difficult for me as I don't pay excess attention to them.  Moreover, many of the books I read merely number the chapters.  In light of this, my list is made up of chapter headings I liked from the books I've read most recently.
