All Hail the Addicted Series King: Happy Birthday Connor Cobalt + Treasure Hunt & Giveaway!

Hello, loves! Today is a special day. Today's the day the literary world's most charming, sexy and arrogant intellect was born! That's right Addicted fans, it's Connor Cobalt's birthday *cheers and hollers* Siiri at Little Pieces of Imagination has brought together myself and some fabulous bloggers to celebrate the one and only Richard Connor Cobalt *cough* our king *cough*. I hope you enjoy and don't forget to enter the amazing giveaway at the end of the post! You'll have to do a little work for a boat-load of extra entries, this is for Connor after all, he loves a good challenge ;)

What do you get a man who has everything?! I had the hardest time figuring out what to do for this post. In the end, I've written a poem (that hopefully makes sense with the attempted rhyming scheme haha) using the letters of Connor's full name! And, if you're not a Coballoway shipper, maybe you'll change your mind after this post :)

Right from the start, there was one thing I knew
Intelligence is sexy; there is nothing more true
Connor Cobalt is proof of the phrase
His wicked charm will have you swooning for days
Arrogant yet caring
Resourceful and captivating
Don’t be fooled by the witty insults he flings at you
Connor can be an amazing friend through and through
Once you witness Coballoway banter in Addicted To You
Not a moment will pass, you won’t ship the two
Not in Ricochet, Addicted For Now or Hothouse Flower
Or Thrive or Addicted After All, because these Nerd Stars have great power
Really though, if you haven’t read Kiss The Sky yet do it now
Coballoway will have you gushing and grinning and going wow
One moment with Connor and Rose won’t be enough
Beginning to end or when times get tough
Anything is possible when these two are together, because
Losing is a non-existent term in their dictionary
They’re extraterrestrial, they’re extraordinary

AND here are my top 6 reasons why you MUST SHIP COBALLOWAY:
Pssssh, my post number is 6!

Join the treasure hunt for an extra 25 entries in the giveaway! Siiri has ingeniously devised a treasure hunt with the blogs participating in this celebration. Participating in the treasure hunt is not necessary to take part in the giveaway though. Getting the right answer can get you an extra 25 entries however, which will be huge compared to the rest of the people who may just follow one or two people and comment on a few blogs, and increase your chances of winning something! The game is fairly easy, but a little time-consuming and needs your full attention. Here's how it all works:

1. Every letter (A, B, C, ..., J) stands for a specific blog.

2. The letter "K" is a different matter: if you're a part of the Addicted Series Facebook Fanpage, you don't have to calculate the letter K's value. But if you're not, here's a small equation for you: (100-64)

3. You'll have to find the quote next to a specific letter from a blog. Some of these quotes appear on multiple blogs, but you'll need to pick out the right one for the right letter. To make it easier, some of the quotes are easily identifiable and you'll know that if two (or more) blogs have the same quotes(s), one of them has to have another sentence too (one that appears on only that blog), so with some thinking, you should be able to figure out which letter goes with which blog.

4. If you have matched the letters to all the blogs, match every letter to a specific number that's on the blog which the letter represents. Here's an exampleQ: "Connor is a magical unicorn even if he doesn't admit it. He's one of a kind!" appears on a blog *insert name* and that blog post has the number 8 featured somewhere on the post. Now you know that letter Q correlates to number 8. We would advise you to write all the info down and match the numbers to the letters on paper so that the final part will be easier!

5. Solve the following equation: A + B / C – D * E + F – G + H – I * J + K = L by substituting the letters with the numbers you found on the blogs you visited. After you have solved the equation, submit it to the raffle below to earn 25 extra entries (you'll have to provide an answer in 5 different boxes to earn all the entries though)

6. Give yourself a big pat on the back for completing this task! CONNOR WOULD BE PROUD :)

The quotes that you’ll have to search for, to match all the numbers and letters for the equation are..
A: “The way you stand up for and take care of the people you love speaks volumes of the kind of person you truly are.”
B: “He is king of my world, because he's the king to my queen, Rose Calloway.”
C: “People hope to touch the sky. I dream of kissing it.”
D: “What do you get a man who already have everything? ”
E: “Connor wears confidence like his most expensive suit, with style and dignity and so much charm.”
F: “Hey birthday boy, the party is over here. ”
G: “His wicked charm will have you swooning for days.”
H: “Connor is Siiri's fantasy boyfriend. No one else can have him. ”
I: "Je suis passionne de toi."
J: “Joyeux anniversaire Connor! Passez une merveilleuse journé!”
K: If you’re a part of the Addicted Series Facebook Fanpage , you don’t have to calculate the letter K’s value, but if you’re not, here’s a small equation for you: (100-64)
L: SOLUTION TO THIS WHOLE EQUATION
