Please help me find decently-written, really gripping books to read this summer in my hammock.

School is ending on Thursday and I am planning to spend my days relaxing but I need some really interesting novels to help me with this. They must be:
Available on the Kindle
Well-written enough not to be distracting (i.e., no DaVinci Code, however gripping it might be)
Really interesting -- I'm looking for books where whenever I'm not reading them I wish I were (mysteries are great for this but not required)
Have some funniness in them; they don't have to be dedicated humor books but I need to chuckle at least occasionally
Examples of books that have worked for me in the past include:
Anything by Agatha Christie
Anything by Elizabeth Peters
The Harry Potter Series
The Hunger Games Series
Please don't recommend P.G. Wodehouse; I've read a ton of his stuff already. Thank you for your suggestions!
