THANK THE LORD, because boy am I not satisfied on how Padmé's been treated so far by Disney. That novel better be good!

You were fatser than me on creating a thread for the Padme novel(Laughing ) but I'm so glad Padme's finally getting a novel of her own.Seriously, the last time she got her own novel was in 1999 after TPM was released so it would be almost 20 years without getting any new Padme content excluding TCW!
That's insane and LF should be ashamed of ignoring such a great character like Padme who's also Luke and Leia's freaking mother!

well, I don't know. To be honest... I'm not so much into Padme. Somehow she never really got me invested emotionally.
When she died in RotS I didn't even cared Nope

It's a shame because she could have been epic... they are many alternate ending stories about RotS on youtube. In one of them Padme tried to kill Anakin herself on Mustafar when she realized what he had become. That would have been awesome! But for some reason GL decided to make her this week uninteresting (and sorry stupid) woman who died of a broken heart (really? L-puke ). I rather she would have been really killed off by Anakin.

So it's hard for me to be interested in any backstory because I know how she ended as this pathetic character at the end.

If Queen Breha's treatment is anything to go by in the Leia YA novel, I'm looking forward to what they do with Padme (I've only liked her in the episode where she tried to help keep the blue shadow virus from spreading all over Naboo at the risk of her life in TCW)....I'm hoping they explore her relationship with Rush Clovis (the whole statecraft and banking clan angle) and that we see more of her parents, nieces etc.

Yay! Even my 5-year-old has noticed the lack of Padmé toys, etc, compared to other Star Wars' heroines. I'm definitely buying this.

Now that I have more time to respond (I was at work when I saw the announcement) I have to say I'm really excited, because while I love Leia, Padme has some strange hold over me, even though I think GL made some major mistakes with the script (etc, etc). I think it was because I was 11 or 12 when TPM came out and felt a connection to her teenage character (plus I loved Natalie Portman).
I've always been fascinated with the political side of the SW universe, Naboo in general, the politics on Naboo, and the intricacies of her handmaidens and decoy system. I honestly don't know much about her life aside from the PT movies, so I can't wait to learn more. I think it's interesting they elect a queen on Naboo. I always assumed her whole family was dynastic royalty!
I haven't read any of the YA novels in the SW canon. Are they well written? Do we know who the author is? (I couldn't find that in the article.)

@SheLitAFire

We don't know who the author is yet. I'm crossing my fingers for Claudia Gray, but I doubt she will tackle that one.

For the SW YA novels... I highly recommend Lost Stars and Leia, Princess of Alderaan. Ahsoka was decent (though I feel like a lot more could have been done with it), and I haven't read Rebel Rising... mainly because I got told it was written before the big changes for R1 occured and therefore, Jyn and Cassian's characterizations are different, apparently.
