Use a white modiied thinset, apply the thinset so you get full coverage on the back of the tile, dont dab spots on the back. Put it up wiggle it to form a suction with the ceiling, get it set in place and wait 5 minutes to see if it falls down. If not you did the application right and carry on.

Thanks for your reply. One more question, what is the ideal grout size for granite tiles?
