Romantic Intentions Quarterly is Reading Romance. SO MUCH ROMANCE.


For our first four issues, across our seminal year, RIQ‘s dedicated staff plumbed the very recesses of pop culture for all the romance we could detect across most every medium. We’ve loved doing it, and we know some of our readers have really enjoyed the breadth of our coverage, but for most of you — and indeed, for most of us — what we really care about is romance novel recs and reviews. Maybe the occasional essay, or interview — again, about romance novels — but you just want us to cut to the chase and dish on the latest releases, while also honoring classics of the past.

So that’s what we’re going to do! Beginning with Vol. 2, Issue 1 on October 1st, 2019, we shall be bringing you all the best of our beloved genre — and we’re already reading our way through hundreds of forthcoming titles, along with some backlist delights, in order to share our thoughts with you all.

In the meantime, we’ll be bringing some daily thoughts on all things romance, in the lead up to our new look in a few months.

Yours romantically,

Rachel xx
