* Matilda from Roald Dahl's eponymous book [[ChildProdigy taught herself to read in toddlerhood and made significant progress in the Western Canon by age five or six.]] She doubles as a CuteBookworm.
* Anne in ''Anne of Green Gables.'' At first this was a form of escapism from a difficult life as a foster child. She later channeled the interest into teaching and writing; the movie version of ''Anne of Avonlea'' specifically has her teaching English and literature in a private secondary school.
* Sara Crewe of ''A Little Princess'' is said to love books. In fact, when [[spoiler: her father dies and she becomes a servant at Miss Minchin's Seminary]], she is highly concerned about continuing her education, and is thrilled to get to read whenever she can.
* The children's book ''A Sister More Like Me'' (which is based on an earlier version of the film's script), which is a tie-in for ''Disney/{{Frozen}},'' describes Elsa as a bookworm and diligent student. This wasn't included in the film itself but was also referenced in a CutSong "More Than Just A Spare".

* Sheska from ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' is this to insane levels. Not only does she fit all the standard requirements for being a Bookworm, she also seems to like reading for the sake of reading. Including cookbooks. More importantly, she can even recall books perfectly, such that when she made a copy (From memory) of said cookbook for Ed, he was still able to decode the secret message in it. This quality of her is even more noticeable in ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemist'' thanks to her being an AscendedExtra and eventual best friend to Winry.
