* Daniel Jackson on ''Series/StargateSG1'' starts out as one of these before he TookALevelInBadass. He's awkward, nerdy, has peek-a-bangs, wears glasses, and stutters when he's nervous. He's also a huge linguistics nerd which leads to him spending a lot of time reading be it books, or the walls of ancient tombs.

* ''TokimekiMemorial 1'' has Mio Kisaragi, a cute and [[ShrinkingViolet shy]] {{Meganekko}} who ''loves'' reading books (to the point of reading four of them per day), thus she spends a lot of her time at libraries, and she often helps at Kirameki High's one. It's also her who finds the Soccer Manual that'll help the protagonist improve his striker skills, during the storyline of the side game ''Nijiiro no Seishun''.

Added DiffLines:

* Connie Maheswaran from ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse''. She's adorable, shy, self-doubting, and commonly seen in the company of a book. Somewhat subverted, however, in regards to her friendship with Steven; she's comfortable enough around him to let a much more excitable side show.

* Yuki [[PunnyName Uchiki]], the school librarian in ''Manga/KoufukuGraffiti''. While at 24 years old she may be a bit old for this trope, she fits otherwise--she has so terminal social anxiety that she'd have to [[EatingLunchAlone eat in her car]] and can't interview properly if the position has nothing to do with books.

* Literature/HarryPotter and Ron Weasley learn the hard way in ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire The Goblet of Fire]]'' that Hermione Granger [[BeautifulAllAlong looks rather cute]] underneath the bushy hair, know-it-all attitude, social awkwardness, and book fetish -- she just finds it to be too much trouble.
* The initial attraction between Betsy Ray and Joe Willard in ''Literature/BetsyTacy'' hinges on them both being bookworms. Until they're almost engaged, almost all of their interactions involve books in some way.
* ''Literature/AMagesPower: In the words of Tasio, Annala is a "cute and sweet nerd".

** [[LongHairedPrettyBoy Elliot]] offers a male version of this trope. He lives down by the beach in a small shack, dreaming of writing a magnificent novel, and is a sentimental romantic prone to going off on flowery, poetic tangents.

* Phoebe from ''Film/OnceIWasABeehive'' prove that knows a lot of many random facts, some math, and of course... Bible trivias, because, don't forget about it, this is story about Mormon young girls camp.

* Nanako Misonoo from ''OniisamaE'' is a quiet and sweet-looking YamatoNadeshiko in training, and has good enough grades to get into the ''very'' prestigious Seiran Academy. And then [[BreakTheCutie things get hard for her]]...

* Hanako in ''KatawaShoujo'', though the social isolation is actually due to a complex over her burn scars. The PeekABangs part of the trope are also for the same reason. Still a shy, quiet bookworm that covers her face, though.
* Mio from ''LittleBusters'' is almost always found on her own, reading books quietly. Underneath that, she's less passive than most examples, having a rather [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]], [[CovertPervert perverted]], [[BewareTheQuietOnes ruthless]] side to her, but underneath ''that'' she's a wonderfully kind girl with a terrible guilt complex and a tendency to worry too much. [[spoiler:And her younger self, who was very shy and used books and make-believe to escape into other worlds, was this trope even more so.]]
