You ought to take a look at "A Course in Geometry: Plane & Solid" by Weeks and Adkins. This is an old (circa 1961) book originally published by Ginn. You will be hardpressed to find a book with more challenging material and really good "originals" (ie, proofs). The book is so good that someone bought the rights to it, and continues to publish it. (The company is called Bates, w/ a website at http://www.batespub.com.) There are many schools which use this a textbook for honors geometry.
It does need supplementing if you want to cover transformational geometry. A good textbook, much more uptodate, is "Geometry" by Jurgensen/Brown/Jurgensen, which used to be published by Houghton Mifflin (but which is now McDougallLittell, I think).
