Lately I've gotten into the Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind. I just finished the second book and they are really good. He does a good job creating his world and following the rules to that world. I'm really enjoying it.

I also have read Before Green Gables by Budge Wilson. It's not bad at all. She captures Anne pretty well and ties them in with the rest of the books well. A fair effort at a book not by the original author. Much better than the other one I read The Independence of Miss Mary Bennet by Colleen McCullough. That was just, bad.
