This year I read a TON of beautiful, thought-provoking, funny, tragic longreads on the internet so I thought it would be nice to applaud my favorites of 2017. Want to read more in 2018? Start with these.

Want to save these for later? I use a browser extension/mobile app called Pocket to save articles. It’s really handy! Plus, I was in their top 5% of users this year #humblebrag #notanad. Also, I recommend subscribing to a few newsletters to keep up with the good stuff: the daily or weekly Longreads newsletter, Girls Night In, and ReadThisThing.
