Madeleine L’Engle Bibliography

Madeleine L’Engle A Bibliography:

I first discovered the writings of Madeleine L’Engle in the fall of 1995, a friend and I had each picked 10 books for the other to read, all 10 on the list I received were books by L’Engle. This was round the same time that I started keeping track of what books I had read. I have read her books a total of 33 times; and have read 29 different books to date. With the soon to be released new Wrinkle In Time movie I have been looking at her writings again. I currently have 36 of her eBooks, and still have physical copies of a few. It looks like all of her books are slowly being released in eBook format.

I have compiled the below list of her works from the website dedicated to her works, Wikipedia, Goodreads, and a deep scrounging of numerous books sites on the internet. I am not sure if the list if 100% but it is as good as I can get currently. (If you notice any omissions and can document them I would be happy to add them.)

If I search my blog I come up with 83 posts that make reference to L'Engle. Many in my Author Profile and interview series, and many in essays I have written or when I compare other books to her works. But I read her books back before I started writing reviews for my university paper and started this blog.

I had the opportunity to meet L’Engle in 1997, at the 53rd Weekend retreat in the Anglican Diocese of London, Ontario. I filled an entire journal with notes of her talks that weekend. In fact, I believe she was the first author I met in person.

So I think it is time to go and fill in some of the gaps in my reading and to start reading these books with my own children. So reviews should start appearing soon.
