Captivating Books

I need some quick help. I have a birthday coming up and in order for my presents to arrive in time, I have to order them this week. I want to buy books that completely draw you in. They don't necessarily have to be fantasy, but that'd be nice because I just recently got into that genre. I like urban fantasy but I don't like classic fantasy with ogres and elfs and the like. Books that really got me the past few weeks were Un Lun Dun, City of Bones, The Book Thief and Inkheart (I can't imagine what the translation of Inkheart must be like? I read it in German and the language is just beautiful, I hoped they didn't mess it up).

Thanks in advance! :)
