TTT: Freebie Cover Week

A few years ago I did this whole thing about my favorite themes/motifs for covers. My tastes haven't changed too much (and some of those covers will probably show up again), but there are some new covers that can definitely be added, plus some new themes that now make my list. Today was a long-ass day, though, so I'm going to skip the whole linking thing. I know you're all perfectly capable of looking up a book on GR if it looks interesting to you. <3

Ok, so that was a total time suck and I HAVE to stop fiddling with this. I know I'm going to look at some of your lists and say: I can't believe I forgot that one...but that's ok. I'm sure I will update this a couple of years from now again. 

So that's it for me. What did you come up with for your cover freebie? Link me up!

Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
