How Do I Rate Books That I’ve Read? My Rating Scale

Since I’ve started reviewing books more on my blog, I thought I would share how I determine what to rate books. Of course, sometimes my rating of books change over time as my opinions change but generally they stick to these ratings. I normally rate books out of 5 stars and a 3-star rating is a positive review. I know not everyone uses this same scale, but this is how I generally go about the rating.
