Wrecked by Anna Davis

Goodreads synopsis:

Miranda has lived on Whym Island since the death of her parents. She has taken comfort in its seclusion and in the folklore that claims a mysterious sea witch controls the fate of all on the island and its surrounding waters. It's just been easier to believe that things are out of her control.

But when a terrible boating accident takes the lives of several of her friends, Miranda is rescued by a mysterious boy that haunts her dreams. As the guilt of the accident consumes her, she finds refuge in her late night swims. Then, she meets Christian, a boy who seems so familiar, but won't tell her where he is from and why they can only meet at the beach. As Miranda falls for Christian and begins to put the accident behind her, she discovers that there are secrets that Christian is keeping to protect her that may only end up bringing her nothing but harm.

This one isn't out until next year, but I'm quite looking forward to seeing what it's all about. It sounds like it could be a fairly good YA read, and something a little unique too, which is always good.
Along with novels about Witches, I'm also finding myself drawn to books with subjects surrounding Folklore in them recently, and this appears to have both, which should make it a satisfying read.
So we have witches, folklore, possibly an action-filled, fast-paced plot and even a little bit of romance. Sounds like a good list of ingredients to me. Going to have to wait a while for it though - it's not released until May 2012! (But I'm *secretly* hoping I can get hold of a review copy before then).
