That's right! Today we start the celebration for The Cover Contessa's year of being around!
In honor of this day, I want to thank a few bloggers that have been so supportive of me I can't give them enough hugs!
So take a scroll on down, click their buttons, and browse around. Join them and give them some love! Then enter the Rafflecopter to win 1 of 14 prizes!
First, I have to thank the very first blog I EVER followed. A woman who I got so many ideas from and was one of my first followers, as well! Here's to Shreya from Chocolate Coated Reviews! If you don't follow her, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? GO FOLLOW HER! Her site is fun, pretty and best of all, she's got great stuff going on!
Next, my hugs go out the Kayleigh from K-Books. Haven't been by her blog, well you must. Not only is it full of awesomeness, but it's so nice to look at. She's been a great support to me in the last few months, especially when The Cover Contessa was down for all that time and I had to blog elsewhere! So give a hand to Kay and go see what she's all about!
This blogger is one of a kind. I can always count on her to tweet my posts. She has been a great support to me for the last few months. I love her blog; filled with awesome reviews and giveaways. Be sure to check her out, it's Kelsey from Ketch's Book Nook!
This next blogger is not just a blogger, she's an awesome friend. We talk fairly often, despite her being hundreds of miles away across the pond! She's inspired me to try and make a Vlog, at least one of these days. And it made me so happy to send her a little gift just recently to show my appreciation of her support. Say hello to Bekah from The Reflections of a Bookworm.
This gal is a totally awesome established author who has become a very good friend. I can always go to her with my reviews and often ask her opinion on books (and her review pile is just as packed as mine!). She's adds spunk to my day almost daily, and there's nothing like having a chat with her. Julie was just featured on The Cover Contessa last week for her blog tour of her newest book Resonance (werewolves, what more could you want?). Stop by Bookaroo-Ju and be sure to ask her about ICE CREAM!
This blogger is the opitome of giving you what you want. She's got tons of posts going on and there's always something awesome on her blog. To top it off, she does book tours (and I have recently joined up to help her out). I love to visit Jean's blog daily, and she's fun to watch on Facebook, as well. If you haven't been there, I suggest you hop on over to Jean Book Nerd, I doubt you will regret it!
Now this blog is one that I really love to go look at. The design of WinterHaven Books is just gorgeous. And the girls over there really know their stuff. I always look forward to their reviews for sure. I often pick the books I will read according to what they are featuring. So stop by and see what they are all about!
This blog is about as new as The Cover Contessa. But I'm sure you'll find that once you stop by, you'll keep coming back. It belongs to my good friend Marni. She's got books blasts, reviews, giveaways, you name it. All surrounded by a beautiful background over at Word To Dreams.
Many of you probably know this blogger. She does it all: giveaways, book blasts, reviews, interviews, blog tours, blog hops. Kathy is a jack of all trades. I often wonder how she does it. But what inspires me the most is that Kathy does it all for other bloggers; to get their blogs out there and known. How could you not love that? So hop on over to I Am A Reader Not a Writer and give her some follow love.
Finally, this lady is a great friend. Her blog is fairly new, but she really just jumped right in and went after what she wanted. Tina is an awesome person, someone you can definitely rely on to help you out whenever it's needed. And she deserves to have lots and lots of follower love! So go take a peak at Reading For Fun! I know you'll enjoy it!
So, I bet you're wondering how on earth I could possibly pick only 10 blogs. Believe me, it was hard!
So, I have to mention a few other blogs that really inspire me to keep going. Please give them a click and some love because they really deserve the notice:
So, tell me, did you already follow any of these blogs? Are you following them now?
And I know you're all waiting to see what this HUGE giveaway is about. So, just take a peek at the Rafflecopter below and see what you could win if you enter! And don't forget to stop back every day this week for a new giveaway and more top ten facts!

I think I follow all of these blogs either by gfc or email actually.. As to a favorite, given the diversity of each blog it would be unfair to say any of them is or isn't my favorite.. Each blogger is unique and I enjoy reading every one of the posts >^.^< (cuanam wolfspirit - email@example.com)ReplyDelete
This is true. It's great to see this diversity!Delete
