Just about anything that either Posamentier or Salkind write is going to be fun and challenging.

This book is just what it says -- a whole bunch of tough geometry problems. There are answers in the back, but they're terse and not always easy to follow.

Luckily, there are blogs and githubs with better explanations and methods for any of the problems with which you might have problems.

There are much worse ways to spend a rainy saturday than working through one of these problems.
