G is for Gifted Touch (Fingerprints Series) by Melinda Metz
Sometimes, when I touch things, words fill my head. Words that feel like thoughts–thoughts that are inside of me…but not mine.
I used to think I was crazy. Used to.
I’m starting to wonder if there’s a reason for all the voices that tangle together in my mind. And if I’m right, then it’s not my sanity I’m worried about–it’s my life.

I is for Illuminate by Aimee Agresti
Haven Terra is a brainy, shy high school outcast.

As Haven begins falling for Lucian, she discovers that these beautiful people are not quite what they seem. With the help of a mysterious book, she uncovers the evil agenda of Aurelia and company: they’re in the business of buying souls.

Italy . . . Shakespeare . . . but no romance?Kate Sanderson inherited her good sense from her mother, a disciplined law professor, and her admiration for the Bard from her father, a passionate Shakespeare scholar. When she gets dumped, out of the blue, for the Practically Perfect Ashley Lawson, she vows never to fall in love again. From now on she will control her own destiny, and every decision she makes will be highly reasoned and rational. She thinks Shakespeare would have approved.
So when she is accepted to a summer Shakespeare symposium in Verona, Italy, Kate sees it as the ideal way to get over her heartbreak once and for all. She’ll lose herself in her studies, explore ancient architecture, and eat plenty of pasta and gelato. (Plus, she’ll be getting college credit for it–another goal accomplished ) But can even completely logical Kate resist the romance of living in a beautiful villa in the city where those star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet met and died for each other? Especially when the other Shakespeare Scholars–in particular Giacomo, with his tousled brown hair, expressive dark eyes, and charming ways–try hard to break her protective shell?“In fair Verona, where we lay our scene . . . “
